Here's time for something a little different - I haven't written about beauty for a while now. I guess this is heavily related to the fact I don't usually wear a lot of makeup or spend too much time on  beauty products in general. However, it would be a lie to say that I don't have a skincare routine or brands I heavily prefer to use when taking care of my skin. Therefore  I have decided to write a little more about beauty and share some products that I think deserve to have a place in your vanity case.  As I am not a "makeup nerd", most of my products cut down to essentials - this comes super handy when travelling and I tend to opt for pragmatism when it comes to these. I also just want to mention that this post is not in collaboration with Bali Body but a purely personal review. I really enjoy sharing great products that I think live up to their name - so here it goes!

Most recently, I was after a BB cream and I came across the one in the Bali Body range. We all know Bali Body from social media as the page known for its tanning oils that posts photos of beautifully bronzed babes! Nevertheless they also have moisturisers as well as a BB cream! I am not a huge fan of foundations so a light BB cream was exactly what I was looking for and the Bali Body one seemed to have fitted with the criteria. Having tried many other makeup brands before I was interested to see what this product will be the vegan & all natural ingredients component attracted me greatly!

With its huge social media buzz, I expected to find a lot of reviews or tips which would help me to decide whether to order this product. I have to say I was surprised to find very little information about  Bali Body products in general outside of their web shop. Therefore I decided to go ahead and just order it & try it out for myself. As the reviews were scarce, I typed my thoughts up. Here is what I thought of it..

In the UK store, the BB cream markets itself at the price of £25.95 and has a 35ml capacity. The pricing is higher than the average high street BB cream price, yet still around 10 cheaper than the BB creams from the likes of Bobbi Brown. However for the quality of the product you're getting I would say cream is fairly priced. The packaging is very visually pleasing (always a plus!) and durable which is great if you travel a lot and don't want something spilling all the time in your vanity case. Speaking from experience here as I have had that happen several times with the Dior Nude foundation before..

The Bali Body perfecting BB cream comes in two shades natural & tan. When deciding between these two, I ended up going for the tan color as currently I am still quite tan after my Costa Rica trip. I guess during the winter months I would most likely go for the lighter shade of the two just to avoid an unnatural contrast.

Ok, I have to put a disclaimer here that I am not a make up expert but I don't like to use low quality products either and I do have a vague idea about beauty. Nonetheless,  from my experience of this BBcream so far I am very happy with the quality of the cream and how it evens out my skin tone (especially as I have some patches after an uneven face tan) It's not too heavy in its consistency, yet it provides the skin with an even and balanced coverage making it look super flawless!  the "tan" shade does give a little bit of colour to the paler areas of the face and really refreshes the skin, giving it an instant glow effect! Furthermore after using the BB cream I really feel like my skin is moisturised and doesn't get as dry as before. It is also important to note that it has a SPF 15, which will protect your face from the UV rays.

Overall, I am really happy with this cream and I will definitely be purchasing it again when I'll use this one up. Therefore if you're not make up obsessed like myself, but on the odd ocassion like to perfect your skin tone, you should totally go ahead and try this cream!
