Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream Review

Recently a lot of makeup companies have been coming out with a BB Cream. These BB creams are suppose to even skin tone, reduce the look of pores, conceal imperfections and many more. You can wear them alone or under a foundation.

The BB Cream that I'm going to review is from Hydroxatone, it's anti-aging and contains spf 40. This product hydrates, conceals, protects, reduce the look of aging and brightens skin. It contains plant extracts to help calm and soaths irritated irritated skin and is packed full of vitamin C.

Here's what Hydroxatone has to say about this product:
BB Cream acts as an all-in-one product with cosmetic beauty and skincare benefits. This perfecting multi-functional cream can act as a foundation, concealer, sunblock, and moisturizer all at once BB cream was initially formulated and used by dermatologists to help patients who received laser surgery protect, soothe and refine their sensitive skin while also providing them with a light coverage for post-laser scars, acne, and other skin imperfections.

The color range of this BB cream ranges from light to Deep Tan. I got this in Medium. However, the Medium seemed a little too light for me so be careful when selecting your shade. The color is beige with a little gray (although it does look a bit yellow in my swatches) and a bit of a patsy finish. The color does seem like it would embrace a more pinker undertone. Once I applied my makeup and completed my look it seemed like the color did tone down some so I wasn't left looking to ghostly.


                                                                         Fully blended out

It wasn't overly pasty since it does sheer out considerably once applied. They get the texture down of a BB Cream wonderfully as this is rich and creamy. However, although it appears pigmented, it actually applies very subtly with a sheerer finish that isn't very build-able.

This is quite a nice BB Cream. The texture is beautiful to work with as it blends easily, leaves behind a satiny finish, and hydrates skin delicately without being oily or greasy. It’s lightweight and very breathable coverage as well. It evens out skin tone and brightens skin for a more flawless complexion. However, the sheerness of the product might be a deal breaker for some. I liked it a lot but I’d have liked it even more if the color was better fitted to my skin tone. Sadly, it seemed all the shades run quite light.

I love that this BB cream does do what it says it does. However, it doesn't have full coverage it's more on the light side of coverage, so if you do have a lot of imperfections that you want cover up yup will have to use a concealer. One thing that I do not like is the scent it irritates my eyes. Overall this is a nifty product and if you are looking for a product to incorporate into your summer foundation routine check out this product. You can find it at Ulta
