Today we’re talking CoverGirl BB Cream, and is this product good or is this product bad?
I’m just going to cut to the chase and say this product is not just bad, it’s maybe the worst thing I’ve ever tried from the drugstore. A lofty yet extremely valid statement!
Here’s the deal. I’m not a fan of CoverGirl in general, but I was really trying to give them another chance when I picked this up. Usually I just blow right past them in the drugstore onto L’Oreal, Revlon etc. but I thought, ‘Hey! Perhaps I’m missing out on some great stuff?’ With it being summer I wasn’t in the mood to pick up a foundation but I remember having heard decent things about this tinted moisturizer (which they’ve rebranded as a BB cream even though I’d argue it’s definitely not a BB cream!)
Let’s break it down.
Moisturizing: Fail. This is extremely watery and basically not moisturizing at all.
Coverage: Non-existent. You put this on and you literally see zero difference!
Overall: What is the point of this product? It does absolutely nothing. How in the world anyone has managed to say anything positive about this is beyond me. Okay, maybe my expectations are a bit high. After all, my preferred tinted moisturizers and BB creams hail from Laura Mercier and Dr. Jart. But regardless of that I have GOT to believe there’s something much better hanging out at Walgreens and CVS than this guy.
Nay: Pass on this guys. Blow right past it and onto something else 😉
SO that’s that. It’s Monday, so I wish everyone a great and productive week! And please let me know if you’ve hunted around the drugstore for a BB cream. Are there any I should try?
