Today I’m sharing a review/dupe! It’s Physician Formula’s Argan Wear BB Cream. I snagged this at the drugstore on sale, and I wanted to see if it would be a good alternative to Urban Decay’s Naked Skin BB Cream. My little travel sized bottle was running out and I really wanted to avoid spending $50 on the full size.
I love be creams for ‘no makeup’ makeup days, and either wear them on their own or dust some powder foundation over top. For the most part, I’ve never tried a BB cream I hated. They all pretty much do the same thing– even our imperfections and give your skin a natural looking base.
I don’t mind spending a bit more on a nice foundation, but I feel like a BB cream is so sheer that it doesn’t warrant a high end purchase. Maybe if an amaaazing one comes along I’ll change my mind. I snagged this guy for $8 CAN on sale in the shade ‘light’, as it looks more of a medium.
–Love the consistency, not too thick or thin.
-Leaves a very nice, natural finish on the skin while helping minimize flaws.
-Finish lasts all day, so great for a natural face look.
-Doesn’t make my skin look matte or oily
-Has a strong ‘natural’ smell that I can sense throughout the day. It’s like a cross between what you’d imagine Argan oil to smell like and what makeup smells like.
-Only two shades: light and light/medium
I give this a 4.5/5!
Really glad I picked this up. I find I actually PREFER this to the Urban Decay Naked BB cream, which I found didn’t really do that much for me, so it’s definitely dupable! There is a lot of product in the bottle and it’s a fraction of the price. Honestly, save your money and try this instead!
