No matter how good a day my skin can be having, like any other woman I will always see imperfections. Even after I slather on cover up and powder, there are still a few visible pores, lines, and red spots that elude me. And so, I turned to BB creams.
BB (and its sister CC) creams made waves in the beauty community because they boasted a blend of moisturizer, primer, foundation and even SPF. Easily applied, they provide great coverage and offer at least three of your regular products all conveniently packaged into one fabulous tube.
But after a few months of use, my insatiable hunger for a better product reared its head and I set out to find one. Which is when I stumbled upon Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector – my lighter, smoother answer to BB creams that don’t stack up.
Minimizing your skin’s imperfections is the name of the game and my new best buddy is one step in the right direction.
After a few uses (it takes me a little longer to figure out my products) it became clear that Kiehl’s Skin Perfector is basically tinted moisturizer. Perfect on days you don’t want to feel bogged down by heavy makeup but really kicking into high gear when paired over foundation or BB cream.
And when I say this product smooths out your imperfections, I mean it noticeably smooths them out – both to the eye and to the touch. Something in the blend of this cream makes for a silky soft texture that was noticed by my boyfriend when I asked him to feel my face.
You don’t have to say it… I know what you’re thinking: adding yet another product to your makeup bag does not a mini makeover make. But trust me: using this product is kind of like a real life Photoshop cursor, the changes will be subtle but still noticeable.
To me, having flawless skin is always my top priority when it comes to a makeover.
Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector will be available online from April 21st for $36.
