What product am I going to review?
I am going to review quite a high-end product: the Hydralife BB Cream by Dior. I think this was my first BB cream ever and I loved it from the beginning. I got this BB cream as a present and the shade doesn’t entirely match my skin tone, which is why I mix it with another foundation. Even though the shade isn’t right, I love the coverage this BB cream gives me. My shade is called ‘Sunny Amber’ and it has SPF 30, which might be exactly what you’re looking for!
Dior’s Hydralife Beauty Balm is focused on protecting and hydrating the skin. If you’re looking for a BB cream or foundation that’s really gonna cover up your spots and acne, I wouldn’t recommend this one. This BB cream is suited for all skin types and available in many shades, so make sure you’ve got the right one. Mine looks a little ‘too orange’ on my face, since I already got a darker skin tone.
Package + Feeling
Dior’s Hydralife BB cream comes in a grey triangular tube (50 ml) . The shade is indicated in a frame which says ‘BB cream’. The tube is quite small and tall. The shape and look of this tube shows it’s a high-end product. It does feel a little heavy on my face, like, I can definitely feel that I’m wearing something. But maybe that’s because I know I don’t have the right shade so it makes me feel uncomfortable.
What did it cost me? + Where can you buy it?
I didn’t buy this BB cream myself, I got it as a present. You can buy it online on Sephora, Dior and Amazon. I think the common price is $56 and €54. It’s quite expensive but let’s be real, it’s Dior. + There’s also a Hydralife eyecream with SPF 20 so if you prefer that, check this out!
This is a great BB cream and I’d definitely recommend it to people who aren’t looking for a real coverage, but do want an even skin tone. And the BB cream has SPF 30, which is a huge plus. I do think there are cheaper alternatives with the same results though, so if you think this BB cream is a little too expensive (which I totally understand), there’s so many more!
