Review & Swatches: Gosh BB Cream and BB Skin Perfecting Kit

Hey Lovelies,

On my recent travel to Dubai my sister hooked me up with a bunch of goodies. Amongst them was this Gosh BB Cream in Shade 03 Medium Beige (14 Euros)  and BB Skin Perfecting Palette in Medium (14 euros). For my British readers you can get this from Superdrug, for my Danes you can get it at Matas or gosh.dk and my American readers can order from goshcosmeticsamericas.com.

What Gosh Says:

“GOSH BB Cream is an “all in one” product with foundation,
primer and moisture in just one product.
GOSH BB Cream is formulated with mineral pigments and
the different shades are meant to cover all skin tones
– how? Well because we have made the shades to adapt
to the skin tone. This means that you can choose the shade
closest to your skin tone and when you apply it – it will
blend into your natural skin tone and give a light coverage”.

All I can say is this is the best BB cream I’ve ever tried. It comes in a color range of 5, and it’s also got SPF 15.The coverage is wow!!! I would say it has more of a foundation texture and thickness and I think this is why the coverage is so good. Although it has a medium to full coverage it leaves the skin feeling and looking fresh. It definitely evens out the skin tone and even covers other imperfections and redness.

The finish is more on the matte side with a hint of dew. I really like it because it dries fast and really absorbs well into the skin…so well in fact that I don’t even need to use powder on top. Yet it’s not so dry that it looks cakey, its actually quite moisturizing without that overly greasy look and feeling!!

Ive been wearing it for almost 2 weeks now and on warm summer days and it didn’t make my face get shiny and it certainly didn’t melt off. I would suggest though that you work rather fast with this product…I just use my hands and it really does a great job. Also, if you have very oily skin you might want to consider using some powder on top.

Here’s a look at the BB cream fresh out of the tube and when it’s been almost completely blended in my hand. Beware my hand is a tad lighter then my face and the shade 03 Medium Beige but it blends in flawlessly with my face.

THE VERDICT:

10/10 for his BB cream. It works wonders and does a great job at covering and lasts all day, even out in the sun. Its really great for warm summer days as the finish and texture is a bit more on the matte side so it does a good job at oil control but still leaves the skin looking and feeling fresh. Though I would recommend powder for quite oily skin types and would recommend mixing a bit of moisturizer in for extremely dry skin types (im dry in the winter and dry to combination oily in the summer).

The BB Skin Perfecting Kit is a bit of another story. It comes with three colors, 2 mattes and a shimmer.

BB_SkinPerfectingKit_SwatchesI kind of feel that this trio in medium is a little too dark for the medium beige BB cream, yet the Light trio looks way too light for the BB cream. But the lightest shade in this does work at covering under eye circles, not amazingly or anything and it does nothing to brighten the under eye area.

The pigmentation is so so and the texture was decent, its a thin formula but a bit on the dry side. There was a little bit of creasing under the eye. The darker shades you can use to contour and bronze the face or cheeks which is cool but I feel like the shades looked muddy. And again the pigmentation was so so, making it a bit difficult to work with. The product dries a little too fast in my opinion, again making it difficult to blend flawlessly without leaving streaks.

THE VERDICT:

6/10. Overall I’m not super impressed with this product but it’s not bad either. I think this would be great for either makeup beginners or someone with almost perfect skin that needs a tad of under eye coverage. Perhaps I would have more success with the trio of it matched the BB cream better.

Have you tried this BB cream and Corrective Kit from Gosh? What do you think?
