NEW Models Prefer BB Cream

 I was recently given the opportunity to trial the new Models Prefer BB Cream (A$19.99/40ml) which is part of the new range of skin care products launched recently at Priceline. Models Prefer BB Cream is an all in one skin perfector with MP aquaFLEX, which is an ingredient which ensures moisture is locked in, skin metabolism is optimised, the dermis matrix structure (outermost layer of the skin) is protected and collagen synthesis is restored. The formula is free from parabens and fragrances and is dermatologically tested. There are a myriad of BB creams now available since they launched in Korea a few years ago. Now that these BB creams have been developed by Western and Asian beauty brands, it seems to be that the Asian BB creams have the better formulations. Models Prefer BB Cream was actually made in Korea for Priceline, so I was very excited to see how this product performs. 

Models Prefer BB Cream is available in two shades (Light and Medium) and I have with me the Medium shade for review. The shade Medium ended up being too dark on my MAC NC20 equivalent skin tone, so rather than putting this product to waste I mixed in a 1:1 ratio of the BB Cream and either Dermalogica Medibac Oil Free Matte or Solar Defense Booster as the consistency of both these creams are somewhat similar to Models Prefer BB Cream and they contain SPF30, which the the BB Cream does not contain. 

The texture of Modes Prefer BB Cream alone is lightweight and creamy but the best thing is that it spreads smoothly and effortlessly just the same way as a gel-like formula. As with most BB Creams in the market, Models Prefer BB Cream does not apply on sheer and does not really come close to being comparable to tinted moisturiser. The coverage of the formula is medium and one of the reasons as to why I love using this product is how well it evens skin tone and provides my skin with a perfect base and luminous healthy glow for blush to finish a day time look! Models Prefer BB Cream can be used in place of liquid foundation as it provides excellent coverage to cover minor blemishes and due to the weightless feel of the formula my skin looks natural, feels very comfortable and not at all heavy. Models Prefer BB Cream hydrates my skin very well, so there is no need to apply a base unless you prefer to wear SPF on your skin.

My skin type is combination/oily, so typically with the initial use of all foundations, tinted moisturisers and BB creams I have used in the past, I always have my fingers crossed to hope that these products have good, if not decent, oil control. With Models Prefer BB Cream, my T-zone appeared slightly shiny at the end of the day and based on my criterion in comparison to other formulas I have used, Models Prefer BB Cream performed very well to keep my skin shine-free through most of the day. In addition, I was very surprised to see that the BB Cream did not fade at all after 9 hours of wear.   

Overall, Models Prefer BB Cream is an amazing BB cream as it not only provides my skin with hydration and even skin tone, but it also covers small blemishes, controls excess oils on the skin, has excellent longevity and the product itself is so inexpensive for all the wonderful qualities it provides... it definitely is an all in one skin perfector that I highly recommend! 

Have you tried BB creams before? Which BB creams would you highly recommend?
