High Heels and Training Wheels: Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream



Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream

 It's a reviewski for the blogski!
disclaimer: I received this product for review purposes but all views and opinions are my own.

So, BB creams. I've had a hate/hate relationship with BB creams in the past. I rushed out and got my first BB cream when they first came on the market and the product was useless (sorry Garnier). All it seemed to be, was an extremely heavy, tinted moisturizer that left my skin feeling disgusting. It didn't help correct my dark marks, it just temporarily covered them. It didn't moisturize, it created an oil spill on my face. And there was no SPF. Basically it was the same as using a really terrible, cakey foundation that did terrible things to my skin. So when I say that I really liked the Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream, It's a genuine love because it would take a lot to win me over!

The Benefits

The Hydroxatone BB Cream does more than just cover your problem areas, it actually works to correct them. Over time, your dark spots fade and your skin tone evens out. It has an SPF of 40 which is awesome because if your foundation doesn't have an SPF, it's an extra step to apply sunscreen in addition to a full face of makeup. This BB cream cuts out that extra step. It has plant extracts to calm and soothe irritated skin which is awesome for us girls with redness and it contains vitamin C. This is something my old BB Cream definitely didn't have. If you've seen my Orange Juice Face Mask, you know that vitamin C is a huge benefit to your skin. It stimulates collagen, promotes your skin's own regenerative properties and brightens the skin. Wins all around!

The Application

Another difference between this and other BB Creams is the application and wear. It has the coverage of a light to medium coverage foundation so it can actually take the place of your foundation products. My old BB cream went on thick and looked like I was wearing a mask but this cream is light and looks much more natural. The benefits of coverage and the lightweight feel of a moisturizer. You could use it in place of foundation or you could wear it by itself; it's just that lightweight that you can layer without being bogged down by tons of product on your face. It doesn't look like you're wearing makeup, it just looks like you naturally have awesome, even, glowing skin. Win! It also really moisturizes without making my skin oily and it truly feels like you aren't wearing anything. Again, cutting out an extra step! The smell is nice too. It's a light smell that's not overpowering; it's fresh and subtle and a great unexpected bonus.
I tried this legit style; fresh out of the shower, towel on my head and all. You're welcome. 
The Verdict

I am a drugstore girl through and through. I really don't like to spend a lot on beauty products when I can find great stuff at the drugstore. However, in this case, it seems that bigger is better and it's not something you can scrimp on if you want a great product and real results. I would definitely buy Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream and I highly recommend it; it's definitely worth it! I don't usually recommend pricier products but this one is worth the $39.00 if you want a great BB Cream. And if you think about it, you're cutting out your need for lotion, sunscreen and possibly your foundation so it's totally worth it and can even save you money! If you're in the market for a good BB cream, head on over to Ulta and grab yourself the Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream! You won't be disappointed!
