Kiehl's enters the BB world with a bang. Their new BB is top shelf , and easily ranks with some of my firm favorites of the BB crop . I'm BB crazy so it's great to add another good one to the supply.
Kiehl's has very good coverage , and easily creates enough of a base to allow you to go without foundation. In my first try of it, I puffed on a quick application of MAC Mineralize SkinFinish over it and got a finished look.
** Update- After using this for several days I can say this has kept my foundation looking good and pretty fresh all day/evening long. Not an easy feat for me.
There is a good bit of moisture in the formula but it is oil free. They list glycerin as a hydrator. It gives a dewy finish , so the oiliest of skins might find it too much. Slighlty oily to dry it should work well . It 's very lightweight on skin , makes skin smoothed looking , and uses mineral pigments.
Kiehl's has made sure to add in a dose of Vitamin C for max skin benefits. They say they worked for 2 years to get a formula that would allow for high SPF along with Vitamin C.
There are 4 shades: Fair, Fair/Light, Light and Medium. The Light shade shown works well on me and I am slightly pale. Not the palest, but only 1 shade from that usually. It blends down into skin easily.
The SPF is 50 Broad Spectrum with both chemical and physical blockers.
Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting and Beautifying BB Cream SPF 50 is $ 37 and available now.
