Swisse Natural Defence BB Cream

I recently hauled some Swisse products from Chemist Warehouse. Something I bought, but didn't really need was the Swisse BB Cream. I already have a few base products but I just couldn't pass up on the sale and I really wanted to try a natural BB Cream.




Taken from Swisse- "Swisse Natural Defence BB Cream SPF 30 is a multifunctional, lightweight facial cream that provides sheer, natural coverage with a subtle luminous effect, while protecting the skin from the damaging effects of the environment."

The BB cream comes in a squeeze tube containing 60 ml of product. It has a flip top lid. The consistency is on the thicker side, but is easy to smooth across the skin. The cream has a subtle natural earthy scent.



I bought the BB cream in the shade Light Beige, the colour looks slightly orange, but sheers out during application. It does feel a little on the oily side at first, but sets to only a slightly tacky finish which I much prefer to a BB cream that doesn't set at all.

Because the cream is so sheer, I would liken it more to a tinted moisturiser. In saying that, I do like how radiant this makes my skin look. It also does a nice job of evening out my skin tone. I may not get coverage, but I feel comfortable enough just using the BB cream as a base on minimal makeup days.

I really appreciate that this BB cream not only has SPF 30, but it is a physical not chemical sunscreen. It also contains Australian botanical extracts so has anti-aging benefits.



As you can see from the above before and after pics (the after I also applied mascara), the Swisse Skin Defence BB cream gives me a subtle my-skin-but-better look.





What BB cream are you loving?

  5. Looks like a good one! When I finish the two that I'm using now I'll probably go back to Physicians formula and try one of the formulas I haven't tried like the organic CC cream. xo
