No7 Beautiful Skin BB Cream for Normal / Oily Skin
Shame about colour
I like BB creams because they save time. No need to moisturise and apply foundation. This is also good because it gives more coverage than a tinted moisturiser. When i applied i also dusted my face with loose powder, doing this with my normal bb cream or tinted moisturiser means my makeup tends to stay on most of the day but with this i found my skin looked like it needed touching up more than normal. I liked the texture and application it did make my skin feel good. Major down side is the colour. I'm a pale/medium tone that normally can find a shade in foundation that matches very easy, with this i found that the medium tone was too pink for my skin tone. For this reason i would suggest trying inshore before buying.

Could cover a little bit better
I like the idea of these products as they would save me time and effort when trying to get ready.
I did like this product as it left my skin looking refeshed and smooth however it didn't cover quite as well as expected and it definitely wasn't enough coverage for a night out. I found it then made a great under makeup base!
For lazy days it was good but I didn't feel confident enough to go out without a touch of foundation to go with it.

Not really for me
I have used this a couple of times now and decided it's not really for me. Nothing wrong with it and it may well suit others though.
I personally prefer to put on a seperate moisturiser, and skin did feel like it could do with a little moisturiser on it throughout day. Colour ok (I went for lightest as I have fair skin) but perhaps still a bit dark for my pale scottish skin.
I have combi skin and I did find shine coming through by lunchtime - this is really just a tinted moisturiser and I tend not to use them for that exact reason.
I think No7 have jumped on the BB Cream bandwagon but in all honesty, although tinted moisturisers suit some people, it's not for me.
