After reading some many articles on every single magazine about the blemish “miracle” balm I have decided to buy one for my own personal test: obviously I bought the cheapest one on the market by Garnier (euro 8,90). www.garnier.it
Well, this is one of the fewest time that I must agree with all the articles: I have never been able to apply foundation properly even if I have tried all the various kind of foundations. Sometime I wore too much, other times too little, other times my face had spots so I decided to give up and don’t use the foundation any more. Now my life had changed with the blemish balm or “perfezionatore di pelle” in Italian. I wear it every day, my skin looks healthier, it soothes irritation, it controls oil and shine and it banishes imperfections.
The origin of the blemish balm comes from Asia where women wear it all the time instead of foundation. Now the products available in stores are the new generation of the balm. It is all-in-one product: hydrating cream and make-up.
The one by Garnier contains vitamin C as antioxidant effect, and mineral pigments for a better skin glow. The balm is tinted, light and enjoyable, it offers 24 hours hydration and SPF 15. It is available in two tone: light/medium and medium/deep.
Other blemish balms now available are:
– Neovadiol Lumiere by Vichy Euro 34,79
– Nude magique BB cream by L’Oreal Paris Euro 14,50
– B.B cream Daywear by Estee Lauder $ 38
