No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream for Normal / Dry skin
ok not great
I have been using this for two days from morning through to night time, its day three now and not going to continue using it until summer time.
I am very pale and find this cream makes me feel a bit like Im wearing fake tan, which is not very pleasant. It takes alot of blending into the neck so there's no line and so it matches up with my skin tone.
Its easy to apply and doesn't go dry or clog quickly which is good.I just used my fingers to apply it but you could use a sponge. I would not use a brush with this product as it might streak or be difficult to apply.
I definitely felt like I was wearing heavier make up and throughout the day it did make my skin feel itchy and hot occasionally
I cleanse and moisturize my face every night and it took alot to get to get it off,even once I had thoroughly cleansed my face and washed my face in the shower I felt like it was still there!
I would say this might be a summer night/holiday product when you've already got a tan and want to go out for a drink in a holiday bar or barbeque but its not really good for somebody with very pale skin in winter unless you really really blend it!.
I used a lighter shade of powder over the top to lighten it up.
The upside is it is very silky, it is easy to use and quite cheap.It doesn't show any dry patches you might have on your face which is good.

One of the best foundations
Been using this for a few days and I love it, I've always liked No7 foundations but this tops them all. Leaves my skin looking even and smooth, covers imperfections & is lightweight so doesnt clog. Definately recommend

Moisturiser with Foundation?
Cutting through the marketing hype, this is a moisturiser with foundation.... and sorry No.7, there are better versions on the market.
I found this version quite thick, making it hard to apply and it also smelt quite chemically. I do like moisturisers with 'a touch of foundation' for days when I don't wear a face full of make-up so it gets my thumbs up for that. I also love moisturisers with sun protection so that's another great plus.
All in all, I won't repurchase.
