Bali Body BB Cream


For someone that claims not to wear that much makeup, I sure write a lot about new products and techniques I’m trying. Behold, a new craze of mine: the Bali Body BB cream. Yes, Bali Body, the brand you see all over Instagram, showcasing scantily clad women.

You’ll have to excuse my ignorance because I don’t quite know what the difference between a tinted moisturiser, BB or CC cream is (please feel free to get in touch to enlighten me). What I do know, however, is that this particular BB cream is meant to be utterly lightweight and perfect for everyday use.

I’ve been using it for the past week or so, and I’m a big fan of the finish. The formula is silky, but not greasy, and it covers up any remnants on my face that prove I’m surviving on about four to five hours of sleep. I hate wearing foundation or any base makeup, so this BB cream is prime for me, as I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything.

There are four different shades to choose from; Fair, Natural, Tan and Dark. I’m Tan, which might seem a little light, but the best thing about the cream is that it doesn’t need to be an exact match since it’ll adapt to your skin tone.

Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes, absolutely. It’s not just an Instagram fad.
