April Empties

So sorry I have been absent for a while. I have just started a new position at another salon/spa and getting everything prepared has been quite stressful! Today I want to talk about my “empties” for the month of April.

Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++

Beauty Balms, also known as BB creams, have finally made their way to the U.S. Highly popular in Asia, BB creams are a one-step, multitasking product that provide anti-aging, antioxidants, sunscreen, and foundation all in one bottle.

Dr. Jart is a dermatological cosmetic line in Korea. The Dr. Jart BB cream contains arbutin for brightening properties, titanium and zinc oxide for sun protection, glycerin for moisture and a bio-peptide complex for anti-aging benefits. It is important to note that this product is not formulated using sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMOs, or triclosan.

I was excited to try Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm since I barely have time to brush my hair in the morning. The pump dispenser allows just the right amount of product to ooze from the sleek, gold bottle. At first glance, I worried that the one-shade-fits-all would be too dark for my Fitzpatrick type II skin tone. I blended the product into my face using the Sephora Collection Pro-Air Brush #55. The shade immediately blended into my skin tone providing a smooth, gleaming canvas. It did a great job at camouflaging superficial discolorations but I still need a concealer to cover inflamed acne and under eye circles. Since I am highly acne-prone, I obviously scanned the ingredients list. The only ingredient that could potentially cause break-outs is soybean oil, but since it’s not high on the list of ingredients, I was not or am concerned. I did use this product for two weeks before my review. I have not had any additional break-outs since using this product.

I would highly recommend this product, especially if you are seeking a multitasking product that provides light coverage.
