I’ve been putting off doing this a review of the Seahorse Plankton Beauty Boosting BB Cream – my eczema is driving me potty, but then I thought it might be good for those of you that have similar issues! So no pointing and laughing at my dry patches.
“Seahorse plankton is sustainably sourced and added to this BB Cream, along with angelica root, sea kelp, immortelle, frankincense and blue chamomile, to help stimulate skin collagen production and blur your skin imperfections.”
This is quite thick and creamy in consistency, which does spread well across the skin. There is a herbal scent that fades as you apply it to your skin. It feels very lightweight on the skin, in fact, shortly after application, it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything. It doesn’t dry down or become cakey, in fact it feels quite moisturising. I use my hands to apply the BB Cream, it helps to warm the product and it’s quick & simple to use my hands. No fuss and great if you’re in a hurry.
When I first pumped the BB Cream onto my hand, I did panic that it was a bit too dark and too orange for my pale face. As you can see in the before and after below, it’s actually not too dark at all, if anything it adds a bit of a glow, without being orange. Although if like me, or paler, just a heads up that it will add a certain amount of colour to your face.
I’m not sure if it does much to blur imperfections, they’re still visible, but I do think that it makes me look a bit healthier – it doesn’t translate well on camera. If like myself, you have some dry patches, it can cling a wee bit, just make sure to blend it in well. I think it would make a great base product if you have dry skin as it feels quite hydrating, or just as a base in general.
I think I’d likely wear this more in the summer months when I want less coverage and my skin behaves a bit better generally. Plus I’ll have a bit of colour, so it will blend better. Then I can just touch up with a bit of concealer and I’d be happy.
I love that it’s a natural product, sustainably sourced and suitable for vegans. Also 1% of sales from the Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton range goes towards supporting The Seahorse Trust. So all the good feelings when you purchase this BB Cream for £14.99.
