For the next step in my Dior summer essentials workout, I’ve moved on from the body and focusing firmly on the face! I’ve been trialling the brand new Dior Hydralife BB Creme SPF30, an all-in-one wonder that leaves skin smoothed, hydrated, plumped, evened and brightened with a touch of colour.
It protects the skin with a high SPF of 30, while new-generation correcting pigments with their subtly tinted texture instantly blur imperfections and reduce surface irregularities. This makes skin look incredibly healthy and glowing, like you’ve had your full 8 hours of sleep/drank lots of water/gone for a jog – three things that I am pretty unfamiliar with.
Before you see the before and after pictures, I’ll give you a little bit of insight into my skin. I have a typical combination skin type: dry cheeks, forehead and eye area, and the rest of my complexion gets a little bit oily during the day. My skin concern is dehydrated (the result of late nights and a lack of water!) and this gives me some minor dehydration lines and dark circles.
As you can see from the before and after pictures, the BB Crème really warms up my skintone and diminishes the little imperfections around my cheeks and chin area. It doesn’t completely mask my natural tone (note the little beauty spot on my cheek), yet the slight redness around my nose is reduced and my skin tone is evened out. I’ve had compliments on how glowy and healthy my skin is – something that’s never happened before!
