I have been reading with interest about the introduction of BB creams in South Africa and their wonderful do-it-all properties. I have read reviews of various BB creams from Garnier’s budget friendly Miracle Skin Protector BB cream to the pricier Bobbi Brown and Smashbox offerings, and the Stila 10 in 1 HD Beauty Balm caught my eye because I am a fan of their products. However, I have been patiently waiting for 36Boutiques to get in the Eborian BB Creme au Ginseng because it had an SPF25, and the one thing the Stila product lacked was an SPF. And I just thought that was a major oversight in a cream that is supposed to be replacing all your other products!
And I am lucky I waited so long, because to my delight Stila has just launched two new 10 in 1 HD Beauty Balms, and both contain a broad spectrum SPF30. I feel like my prayers have been answered. I have also been praying for world peace and an end to poverty, just so you know I am not all about beauty products.
So what else is fabulous about these Beauty Balms? One is called the Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Bronzing Beauty Balm (review here), which will do all the things BB creams do, but also give you a nice sun-kissed glow. I mentioned on my post about Stila One Step Illuminate that I have been wanting to try the One Step Bronze too. Now I think I would rather try this bronzing option. It is “ten in one” and has the vital high sun protection factor!
The other option is the Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Illuminating Beauty Balm (review here), so obviously provides the same luminous effect that the One Step Illuminate primer does, just in a BB cream format. I am so excited to try this Beauty Balm out! It is available at selected Woolworths and Truworths stores. In Cape Town you can try Truworths Somerset Mall, Cavendish and Tygervalley, or Woolworths V&A Waterfront and Cavendish.
