Perfect BB Cream SPF40/PA+++ Review & Swatches

With all the BB Creams out there you have so many different options and brands. I really like the BB Creams, I am using them more and more each day. This particular BB Cream is the 3LAB Perfect BB Cream with an SPF of 40. 

Here is what 3LAB says: Infused with 3LAB’s signature bio-engineered growth hormone and apple stem cell technology, PERFECT BB SPF 40 is a sheer tinted moisturizer designed to firm and lift the skin, regenerate new skin cells, brighten, moisturize, and protect. conveniently in three shades to match your skin tone.

Features & Benefits: Protects the skin from harmful UV rays and oxidative stress
Soothes and calms irritated skin
Regenerates cells through the use of Phytocell Tec and Nano Clair GY
Minimizes the appearance of skin discoloration evening out skin tone
Moisturizes and hydrates the skin with a lite feel
Provides great coverage for age spots and blemishes

My thoughts:

Goes on flawless and even
Light feel and moisturizing
Perfect at hiding pores (at least for me anyway)
Has more of a matte finish than creamy
Has a pump which I really like ( keeps unused product clean)
A little goes a long way
Great fragrance

One thing I will say is that my skin is a little dry and I find that since this has a more matte finish (at least on my skin), I need to put on a bit of moisturizer first. Otherwise I like the matte finish a lot. This also came with a roller applicator, I used it once but I like using my fingers to apply better. I have been using this for a little more than a week. I can definitely notice more moisture in my skin. I have combination skin but my forehead is super dry. I always have trouble with foundations looking cakey, and even with this BB Cream being more matte my forehead stays really moisturized all day.

You can see in the swatch below a little goes a long way! Just that one dab covered the entire back of my hand. I barely have to put any on. And the coverage is amazing. This is almost feels like a foundation for me but still really light coverage, but just enough to hide any blemishes and spots. I will also do an update in a couple weeks and show you some pictures on my face too.

Overall I am really impressed with this BB Cream. This isn't your normal $10 BB Cream, as it states in the features and benefits it has so many more reasons why this is worth the money. I for one would probably buy this again. I would definitely stretch out  the life of it and make it last longer. But the rate I am going It might be gone soon!
This BB Cream is $95 and you can find at Nordstroms, Barneys, and 3LAB
