A little while ago, I posted about a Sephora haul. In that haul was a sample of Cover FX’s BB Gel Mattifying Anti-Blemish Treatment which I had picked out as a bonus for my online order.
I absolutely love trying new products that might help with my acne, and I’m glad I found this one.
What I liked:
My first impression of this BB gel when I squeezed it out was that it felt like a tinted moisturizer. It was very light on my fingertips and didn’t feel sticky at all.
Upon application, I was pleasantly surprised. It felt very moisturizing, but not heavy as to clog my pores. I found it very easy to move around my face with just my fingers. For some reason I expected a heavy foundation type feel, and that’s not what I got at all.
The finish was my favourite part of this product. It sets on the skin very matte and extra light and almost as a perfect base for other makeup. The extreme lightness allowed for me to add my normal concealer and foundation overtop without worrying I had cake-face.
What I didn’t like:
As to whether or not this gel “treated” my acne or not, I don’t know. It didn’t seem to get better or worse. Many products make my acne flare up severely, so it’s definitely a win that it didn’t happen with this.
I love the idea of this product for light everyday wear. As I said, it reminds me a lot of a tinted moisturizer- not enough coverage to wear for a night out, but just enough for school pick-ups and grocery store runs. The anti-blemish factor is definitely a plus, but even without it, this product is great!
