Ralo’s Newly Launched : BB Cream

The darlings over at Ralo were kind enough to send me their new collection of BB creams to try out.

Firstly, Sandylashxx posted about BB cream and explained what is supposed to be over here and without copying what she said, Ralo have said that the benefits of their newly launched BB cream also include being a primer, concealer, foundation, moisturiser, to be light and non-greasy and to also protect from the sun with an added SPF.

There are 4 different tones of the Ralo BB Cream, namely light, medium, dark and deep. If one of these tones do not suit your skin tone, they suggest to blend two shades together for a perfet match. My skin tone is “light” because I’m as pale as a ghost (thank you British genes AND winter) and it is probably still ever so slightly too dark for my skin tone but if you brush a touch of bronzer on your cheeks no one notices. Just blend it into your neck/jawline well and no one knows! BB_Cream_Light

This product can be used on its own but I am a firm believer in always using a moisturiser first before applying any makeup-like product as BB cream can be described as both a cream/primer/foundation supplement – so just do it – because I said so! 😉

I have been using this product on its own over moisturiser and it easily covers blemishes and any red marks or imperfections, as most of the BB creams on the market do. I find that if i do not proceed to put a powder over the BB cream the pigment has the staying power on the face like a tinted moisturiser (it can have no pigment in an hour or so after application) which is ideal for sometimes but if you want more coverage apply a thin layer of setting powder of your choice on top and it lasts the whole day. It is not oily however with my oily skin I find it makes my skin feel oily about late afternoon (if applied early morning) and I require a powder touch up.

Using the product as a primer has not been my favourite go-to use as I feel the product provides a medium coverage and I’ve been loving light-to-medium coverage on my face recently due to good behaved skin! It does work however as a primer but I would suggest using a light-to-medium coverage foundation on top of the BB cream as the coverage will be quite heavy – suitable for a glam night time look. reverse-1252519743_top-model

All in all, this product is actually quite impressive given that it only costs R69.50 and is available from the 29 nation-wide Ralo branches or at the Ralo Online Shop.

Just on a side note, I did contact Ralo and asked them about their Cruelty Free Status and they are 100% cruelty free which gives them even more brownie points!
