Makeup Monday ~ L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream

For today’s Makeup Monday, I thought I’d switch it up a little and talk about a face product. I have been using the L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream since the fall.

IMG_1452I don’t know if I would call this a BB cream, in the strictest sense of the word, since it seems like it’s more like a tinted moisturizer. It’s a light coverage but is easily buildable. It blends beautifully, glides onto the skin, and best of all, it doesn’t melt off in the middle of the day! The scent of the product is light and pleasant and isn’t noticeable once it’s been applied to the skin.

One of the main reasons I purchased this product was because of the SPF 15 protection. Sure, it’s not enough sun protection for the middle of the summer when I’m out with the kids for the majority of the day, but it’s great for fall, winter and spring, when I’m sitting at my desk most of the time.

At the time I purchased this product, there were only two shades, which I can see being a problem for quite a few people. I got the shade “light” and I believe the next shade is called “medium”, but don’t quote me on that. Basically, if you’re skin isn’t a match for one of these shades, you’re out of luck.

That’s about it for this week. I would love to try one of the Asian BB creams, and am thinking about heading over to Ebay and ordering one. Any suggestions?
