BB Cream Files: Elizabeth Arden

My love of BB creams is never ending. Since rounding up my picks for best and worst, I've still tried more if you can believe it! In my Sunkissed VoxBox I tried Olay's Fresh Effects BB Cream! Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15. My latest BB cream trial is from Elizabeth Arden. Their Visible Difference Multi-Targeted BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is an all-in-one that instantly hydrates, brightens, primes and protects your skin for a flawless finish. It is $32 for 1 oz.

It's available in 3 shades. Shade 1 is deal for fair complexions with pink undertones. Shade 2 is ideal for fair-to-medium complexions with golden beige undertones. And Shade 3 is ideal for deep complexions with golden undertones. I tried Shade 1 since I have fair skin. However, as you can see by the swatch it was still fairly dark. Since I'm rocking a summer "glow" I was able to make it work.

Key ingredients include:

  • Vitamin C Derivative: antioxidant that fights free radicals and help brighten your skin
  • Biomimetic Peptide: an antioxidant that helps fight oxidative stress (which leads to signs of aging)
  • Licorice Extract: brights the look of skin
  • Hyaluronic Acid: retains skin's moisture and helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Allantoin: provides soothing benefits to the skin

Before & After

I was really pleased with the results! It helped even out my skin tone, gave me a nice glow. and provided enough coverage. Loved that it had SPF 30 which is great coverage for us fair skinned ladies. Some other BB Creams only have SPF 15 so I have to layer on sunscreen as well. It was lightweight but not oily. Everything I could hope for in a BB Cream. I just wish they had more shades available.

It is available at department stores and on ElizabethArden.com. P.S. Stay tuned next week for another BB cream review - I can't stop!
