L'Oreal Paris BB Cream Meets Needs of Busy, Working Mom

With three children, three part-time jobs, and a husband and a house to maintain, I need six simple things from my beauty regimen. If new items don't meet the bar, they're quickly tossed to the curb. I recently received the opportunity to review L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. Would this manage to work its way into my five minute beauty routine, or would it end up in the trash as quickly as it walked in the door? I put it to the test by checking it against my "simple six" criteria.

Finish

Unless I'm fresh off of the beach, I don't like heading out without at least a little makeup on. It doesn't have to be heavy (it rarely is) but I like to feel finished. I want the least amount of make-up possible to make me feel comfortable as I get out the door. L'Oreal Paris BB Cream helped me achieve that finished look without adding time to my routine or overdoing my look. I put it on, added my blush and lipgloss, and felt confident and finished leaving the house.

Ease

Would the cream be simple to apply, with minimal fuss and mess? This is a big factor for me, because I simply can't manage complicated makeup and beauty applications. L'Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream fit the bill.

Speed

Most days, I have less than five minutes to put my makeup on. I need easy, and I need quick. This beautifier cream applied effortlessly; the skinny dispenser tip allowed me to get just the right amount for an application--no mess.

Wearability

I hate feeling like my makeup is caked on, and I certainly don't have time for reapplications throughout the day. L'Oreal Paris beautifier cream felt light and stood the test of a busy day, so I could definitely add it to my daily beauty routine.

Match

Not only do I need makeup that's a good match for my routine, but it needs to me a good match for my skin tone as well. Preferably, I look for something that can be worn year-round, and that's difficult to find. The medium L'Oreal option seems to match my skin tone well now in the summer, and I think it will still work once my tan fades and fall and winter arrive.

Need

Because I don't wear (or need!) heavy makeup coverage, I've been on the hunt for a product that smooths out imperfections and that I can wear as a base under my blusher and lipgloss. I was hopeful that the L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream product would achieve this, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it did!

Disclosure: I received a free sample of L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, and was monetarily compensated for my honest review.
