Spring Series ft. Purlisse

When I don't want to wear foundation and still want my skin to look even, I turn to BB creams and the like.  I've only found a select few that perform well on my oily skin and one of those is from Pur~lisse.  Their BB cream comes in two shades, Light and Medium.  I have the shade Light, as I am in the Ivory family of foundations.

First off, I have to say I've had many Pur~lisse products and I've loved them all.  I currently have their Pur~Moist and Pur~Protect moisturizers.  I used to have their Lip Nourisher and Pur~Delicate cleanser but finished those products (they're amazing).  Luckily, I've been just as impressed with their BB cream!

The packaging is your typical squeeze tube, which I like for face products.  It's sanitary and easy to travel with.  While the coverage of this product was fantastic, I did find myself using a tiny bit more of it than I would a typical foundation.  I don't mind, considering you're getting 1.7oz of product so it will last longer than a foundation that's usually 1oz.  For application, I used a synthetic buffing brush and tapped product over areas that might need a bit more coverage (redness etc.).  I was really pleased with how this BB cream evened my skintone without looking heavy or cakey on the skin.

Following application, I used a bit of powder on my t-zone and followed with my bronzer and blush.  Everything blended seamlessly and looked beautiful over this BB cream.  Throughout the day my face looked fresh and felt great.  I didn't notice any greasy feeling or heaviness as the day went on which was nice.  I did blot once during the day, but everything stayed in place and maintained a fresh appearance.  Overall, I loved this as a lighter, more natural alternative to foundation.  I'll definitely be reaching for it a lot this spring!
