BB Cream Worth The Splurge

6/04/2015




I 'get' BB creams, I like to use them and I see them as advanced tinted moisturizers. For me, they are evolved tinted moisturizers with better texture, better longevity, better coverage, skin benefits, sun protection etc. and they are an attractive skincare/makeup hybrid which fits the busy girl's bill perfectly. As soon as spring arrives I automatically ditch my liquid foundation for them (bye-bye YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat, bye-bye Dior Star foundation!). BB creams are perfect for everyday makeup but they won't make the cut if evening makeup is in question. But for an easy, breezy swish of perking-up? Absolutely! Here I bring you my latest crush and addition to my make-up bag. It's pricy but well worth it! Filorga BB-Perfect Anti-Ageing Beauty Balm SPF15 (30ml cost £35) is a true gem and I was contemplating going a shade lighter a month ago but since my skin has tanned a bit, I've settled for the middle shade 02 Sable Doré/ Golden Sand and it suits me surprisingly well! Right from the bat I'll have to disappoint my rosy undertoned sisters - all three shades available are of a warm undertone. 01 Beige Luimere/ Light Beige would suit my winter fair skin, 02 Sable Doré/ Golden Beige suits me now but the 03 Ambré Radieux/ Radiant Amber shade seems kinda dodgy as in being too orange for the majority of complexions. In contrast to most Western BB creams on the market, Filorga's offering provides an experience very reminiscent of the original, first BB cream originally formulated in the 1960s in Germany by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek to protect her patients' skin after facial peels and surgery. The Beauty Balm of Filorga is suitable for use after light cosmetic treatments, to help heal the skin, reduce scarring while it camouflages and protects.

Znate da mi se svidjaju BB kreme? Jednostavno ih 'razumijem' posto na njih gledam kao na kreme u boji koje su evoluirale - imaju bolju teksturu, bolju trajnost, bolju prekrivnost, pruzaju napredniju njegu kozi uz dodatak zastite od suncevog zracenja itd. Zaista su atraktivan hibrid dekorative i preparative koji se savrseno uklapa u rutinu svake zene - pa i one sa potpuno pretrpanim rasporedom. Cim proljece stigne, automatski zamijenim svoje tecne podloge sa BB kremama (pozdrav YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat, cao-cao Dior Star tecna podlogo!). BB kreme su idealna baza za svakodnevni make-up no nece biti dovoljne ako ciljate na vecernju sminku. No ako je u pitanju jednostavan look koji nije komplikovan niti vremenski zahtjevan? Na tom terenu briljiraju! Zelim vam napisati koju rijec o jednom primjerku koji je obogatio moj neseser i zaista me odusevio. Kosta puno ali vrijedi investicije - pogotovo ako inace volite uloziti vise novca kada je koza u pitanju! Filorga BB-Perfect Anti-Ageing Beauty Balm SPF15 (30ml kosta cca 90KM) pravi je ulov i iako sam razmisljala o svjetlijoj nijansi, sada mi je drago sto sam se odlucila za srednje tamnu varijantu 02 Sable Doré/ Golden Sand koja mi iznenadjujuce pristaje posto je sunce pocelo da stvara broncani ten. Odmah da znate, moje drage citateljice ruzicastog podtona - vama nece odgovarati niti jedna od postojece tri nijanse, nazalost - sve nijanse su prilagodjene toplijem tenu. 01 Beige Luimere/ Light Beige bi mi licno odgovarala tenu tokom zime, 02 Sable Doré/ Golden Beige mi je trenutno savrsena dok je nijansa 03 Ambré Radieux/ Radiant Amber prilicno cudna i iskreno mislim da ce rijetko kome odgovarati jer je dosta narandzasta. Kao kontrast vecini Zapadnih varijacija BB kreme, Filorgina BB krema pruza dasak originalnog BB iskustva. Nosi stih originalne BB kreme koja je stvorena 1960tih godina u Njemackoj od strane dermatologa Dr. Christine Schrammek koja je svojim izumom zeljela zastititi kozu pacijenata nakon operacija i tretmana koze. Filorga Beauty Balm je namijenjen, kako svakodnevnoj upotrebi, tako i na kozi osjetljivoj nakon kozmetickih tretmana i ciljano joj pomaze kozi da, da smanji izgled oziljaka dok kamuflira ostala nesavrsenstva.




It provides an evened out complexion while assisting in wrinkle-reduction and skin-soothing. The anti-aging bit is covered by the fact that it's got an SPF15 and makes use of corn/maize extract which acts like a polyfiller for wrinkles. The soothing part is covered by natural ingredients (one of which is derived from citrus peel, quite possibly orange). It's a mixture of 55 different ingredients including hyaluronic acid and the NCTF® complex which is really the signature of Filorga. It's paraben-free, suitable for all skin types and suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans. It can be used alone or on a serum and/or a day cream according to your skin type. It comes in a silvery tube (exactly the same as seen with their Hyal-Defense serum, reviewed here) and I'll just repeat that I find the pump very hygienic and the entire packaging is very convenient. Every Filorga product has the same specific scent - very luxe, elegant, fresh - but also a minus for those who do not like scented skincare. The texture of this BB cream is ace! It has just the right amount of slip but it's not oily at all! It really can be customized and can cater to all skin types - oily/combo skin can use it without a cream underneath while dehydrated/dry skin can apply a serum or cream underneath. A friend with rosacea was also thrilled as it glides smoothly over her rosacea-reddened skin, but without looking either chalky or feeling thick. It's not a foundation, so I don't expect it to cover all my blemishes and flaws, but it certainly evens out my complexion. The coverage is quite low but enough to camouflage redness and light spots. It cannot cover my dark under-eye circles and I still use a concealer on that area (Clarins Instant Concealer). Its sophisticated formulation does not clog my pores nor has it caused any irritations. I apply it with clean fingers and it applies rather evenly while the longevity stays in average realms (approx 6h) but it is note-worthy that it doesn't make my T-zone shiny after hours of wear. I really am impressed and can honestly say that it's something I'd repurchase or recommend a close friend of family member.

Pruza ujednacenje tena dok pomaze kod ublazavanja izgleda borica a djeluje i umirujuce. Anti-ageing djelovanje je potkrijepljeno cinjenicom da krema sadrzi zastitni faktor SPF15 i koristi ekstrakt kukuruznog skroba koji se ponasa kao filler i zagladjuje kozu. Umirujuce dejstvo je potkrijepljeno prisustvom prirodnih sastojaka (od kojih je jedan dobijen iz kore citrusa, vrlo moguce narandze). Elaboriranu listu sastojaka sacinjava cak 55 razlicitih sastojaka ukljucujuci hijaluronsku kiselinu i NCTF® kompleks koji ja uistinu zastitni znak Filorga preparative. Ova BB krema ne sadrzi parabene, prilagodjena je svim tipovima koze i sligurna je za koristenje cak i od strane vegetarijanaca i vegana. Mozete je koristiti samostalno ili preko seruma/dnevne kreme, sve ovisno od potreba koze. Sto se tice pakovanja, rijec je o tubi srebrne boje (identicna je pakovanju Hyal-Defense seruma ovog brenda, koji sam recenzirala ovdje). Samo cu ponoviti da je pumpica iznimno funkcionalna i higijenski odabir te, uopsteno, cjelokupno pakovanje je pun pogodak. Svaki Filorga proizvod koji sam isprobala krasi isti miris - luksuzne, elegantne, svjeze i lijepe note - no istovremeno je ovo minus sa gledista korisnica koje preferiraju proizvode koji nisu parfimirani. Tekstura je famozna! Sasvim je dovoljno maziva a da ne prelazi granicu da postane masna! Zaista mislim da bi odgovarala vecini tipova koze - masnoj kozi bi samostalno odgovarala (bez kreme ispod) dok bi se dehidriranoj i suhoj kozi vjerovatno ljepse nanosila preko odgovarajuce kreme/seruma. Prijateljica koja pati od rozacee je odusevljena djelovanjem Filorga BB kreme jer se jako lijepo nanosila preko crvenih dijelova koze no nije djelovala previse gusto. Ovo nije puder tako da nisam ni ocekivala da prekrije sve bubuljice niti mane ali je bez sumnje ujednacila izgled mog lica. Prekrivanje je prilicno blago ali dovoljno da prekrije crvenilo i sitne bubuljice (tackice, kako ih ja zovem). Ne prekriva moje tamne kolutove tako da u tu svrhu dodatno koristim korektor (Clarins Instant Concealer). Sofisticirana formulacija ove BB kreme mi nije zacepila pore i nije izazvala negativne reakcije. Nanosim je cistim prstima a trajnost je prosjecna (cca 6h) no mislim da vrijedi spomenuti kako nije ucinila da mi se T-zona dodatno sjaji. Iskreno sam impresionirana i mogu reci da je ovo proizvod koji bih sebi ponovo nabavila i preporucila bih ga bliskim prijateljicama i porodici.
