20 women aged between 30 and 40 who were concerned with uneven skin tone, an oily complexion or dehydrated skin.
Star ratings during this trial*:
The Trial Team members – who went in-store to be colour matched for this Trial Team – were incredibly pleased with both the Beauty Balm and the Beauty Balm Compact. Overall, they found that both products evened out their skin tone, while adding radiance and luminosity to their skin. Both products felt lightweight on their skin, with some members mentioning that the Compact felt more like a foundation while the tube of the Beauty Balm felt more like a moisturiser.
The testers found that the coverage was buildable and lasted all day (some even found that the Beauty Balm stayed put during extreme heat) and most appreciated the fact that the products are great multitaskers as they prime skin, gives medium coverage and feature a high sun protection factor.
Members were also impressed by the huge shade range (available in nine shades) and commented on the excellent service they received in-store, finding the experience to be easy and enjoyable.
“Love how light it felt on my skin while still providing me with ample coverage on the areas that needed it. I could build the coverage in areas that needed it without it looking splotchy or uneven. It evened out my skin tone and give my skin a natural, healthy glow!” – Michelle240. Read more…
“I have to say I'm a huge fan of the BB and although I love my beauty products and routine I much prefer a product that is an all-in-one and can replace the job of several products in one swipe. You have your prep, prime, colour and SPF in the one product. It's brilliant!” – Beauty Obsession. Read more…
“It didn't take much time or effort to blend it in and again my recently temperamental and hormonal skin looked transformed from being patchy and uneven to naturally radiant, luminous and clear.” – HMad. Read more…
“I love that it provides sheer to medium coverage, evens out my skin tone, blends into the skin quickly and evenly, creates a natural but radiant finish and protects with SPF 30.” – Charlie B. Read more…
“My skin looked very even toned and clear. I have a little redness in my T-zone, but this really evened this out and gave a natural healthy glow to my skin and enhanced luminosity.” – Natalie123. Read more…
