Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream.

BB goes body! BB Creams have been a huge craze lately and Jergens Skincare has introduced the new Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream. I have used a couple of BB Creams for my face, so I was really excited to try out a BB Cream specifically designed to use for my body.

This body cream retails for about $10-$12. It is available in two shades: Light and Medium-Deep skin tones. The claims for this BB Cream is that you will have 5 visible benefits in 5 days.

Get 5 Benefits In 5 Days: Hydrates, illuminates, evens, firms, and corrects.

Be sure to watch the video for a quick summary of the product!

Formula: The formula is a sheer, lightweight formula. It appears to have a slight tint to it. The BB Body Cream for Medium to Deep skin tones has reflecting particles in it.

Texture: This is a very lightweight texture. It's not thick or heavy at all. It rubs into your skin easily and dries pretty fast.

Scent: I do notice a faint scent to the BB Body Cream. It smells like shea butter. I personally prefer my body creams and lotions to have a scent.

My Overall Thoughts: Winter can be pretty harsh to my skin, so I was curious about how this would actually work. I am not a huge fan of the price. I think paying over $10 for a body cream or body lotion is a bit pricey. It does however come with 7.5 fl oz worth of product though.

I really like the formula and texture of this lotion. It's lightweight and doesn't leave a sticky or greasy feeling to the skin. It is very hydrating! My skin feels super soft and smooth immediately after applying it. This body cream dries fast too, which means I don't have to worry about it transferring to my clothes.

After applying I noticed that my skin appears brighter and has an illumination to it. It gives a really nice natural sheen to my skin. My skin does feel a bit more firmer, but I also don't really have a huge issue with a lack of firmity with my skin. I have not noticed much of a change with the imperfections in my skin. I also wished it did contain SPF in the product.

I do recommend the Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream if you are interested in a body cream that is going to provide your skin with more hydration. I think it's a good product to use during the Spring and Summer time because it does give your skin a subtle sheen. It's easy to apply and I like the results I did notice with my skin!

Swatches #1: NYX Matte Lipsticks.

NYX Cosmetics released a lot of new products for 2014. They also released new shades for several of their other products. I was super excited to see that they added additional shades of the NYX Matte Lipsticks. I will be sharing four of the new NYX Matte Lipsticks shades in this post.

I was really excited to see that NYX had hopped on the purple lipstick bandwagon. Upon arrival of my package I was really disappointed to see that both shades had shimmer or a slight pearly finish to them. I'm not really sure what made them want to add shimmer to matte lipsticks.

Description: NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put in a matte finish. From Pure Red to Nude, Matte Lipsticks are available in a variety of rich shades.

Retail Price: $6.00

Be sure to watch the video for my quick thoughts and live lip swatches!
