Stuff I love: Dr Jart

Full disclosure: I still get zits sometimes. It's super annoying as a 25 year old woman.

Because of this, I've always been a full-coverage-foundation kind of girl (I've been using Revlon Colorstay for five or six years now). I've never been a fan of tinted moisturizers. They never provide enough coverage, and if they do, they don't last all day, or even half the day. To me, that's totally unacceptable.

When BB creams came onto the scene, I didn't give them much thought. To me, they just seemed like glorified tinted moisturizers. People swore they were different... but were they really? I had tried a few samples here and there, and so far, they weren't different. Not at all.

But then I got this in my March Birchbox.

This stuff is a game-changer. It covers everything I need it to cover, and it lasts all day (with a touch of Make Up For Ever MicroHD powder on top). I never thought those things were possible in a foundation that wasn't already classified as a long-wearing foundation.

I never knew what it was like to feel like my skin was breathing through my foundation. How novel, right? It feels so good on my face. I don't use it every day, so I can't attest to the skin-enhancing benefits. But I can tell you that my skin feels moisturized and wonderful while it's on, and it's easy to remove so I don't feel like it's still hanging around and clogging my pores after I take it off.

I'm not going to ditch my Revlon yet, because on super long days, I want something I know is going to last all day and all night without any touch-ups at all, but this is definitely going into the rotation.

If you're looking for a full coverage BB cream, I highly recommend this one!

Hmm this sounds like something that I may actually buy! I am super lazy and don't wear makeup very often (honestly I should prob not go-without so much) but something that isn't gonna just be caked on my face would be nice. Especially for summer. Thanks for the recommendation!

I'm hoping it goes away eventually! I feel like I've tried EVERYTHING. Mine is definitely way better than it used to be, but still.. zits? I'm 25! ugh. Let me know what you think!
