Hi Beauties,

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.

THE DEETS:

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.


PROS:

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

CONS:

-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


OVERALL:

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!
