Christian Dior Hydra Life BB Creme Review

I am so pleased to be reviewing this product, because I feel like I have finally found the BB cream of my dreams.  I won't go into bb creams, because it's easily googled, and everybody and their mother is now all about BB creams lol.  All I have to say is that - This is the BOMB (yes I'm taking it back to the 90's right here folks :).  I can't begin to express how awesome this bb cream is for me.  I got this during the most recent Boots promotion that gave 1000 bonus points (£10) if you bought either a foundation or a mascara and one other product.

First let me tell you about my skin...
Early 30's, enlarged pores, discoloration, dry in some places, oily in others - a big nightmare!
I need tons of heavy coverage just to feel like I have flawless skin, well....that is an issue within itself as layering foundation always makes you look worse and plastic.  I've been looking for something natural and youthful, and Dior hit the nail on its head.

Hydra life is nourishing and gave my skin the glow that it needed to reflect the blemishes.  It also smells absolutely amazing - fresh and clean.  I don't know what else you could ask for in a bb cream, but I was surprised that all I needed was a small dime size amount and a little bit of powder throughout the day to give myself the coverage that I need.  I'm so happy with this product, that the £41 price ticket doesn't even make me blink.

Product Details
* Spf 30
* £41 for 50ml /1.7 fl oz

You only need a small dollop

The shimmer isn't too in you face, but enough to even out discoloration

The BB cream is slightly warmer than my natural skin tone, but that helped a lot to give my skin a warm natural looking bronzey tone to my face.  It doesn't look fake, and it really makes your skin look healthy and glowing :)

I highly recommend this BB cream, and I rarely say that.


  1. I have been so curious about this. The price makes me hesitate.

  2. Same here, but I am so happy that I did. This was on promotion, so that's why I even got it, but I don't regret spending a single penny.

    How are you babes? Sorry I've been out of the blogging mood, but I'm bacccckkkkkkkk :p
