{Review} Avon Ideal Flawless BB Cream

In my “New In” post, I mentioned that I’m currently trying a new BB Cream and that’s something huge for me because I’m a creature of habit. I believe if its not broken then why fix it? In simpler terms; I love my Garnier BB Cream so why am I even experimenting with a new BB Cream? I saw it in the Avon brochure so I purchased it and I might have over reacted a lot a little when I saw it the first time. A few days went by and I finally managed to build up the courage to take it out of the box again and give it a second look. I have to say that I’m now singing a completely different tune.

I’ve been using it everyday since the day that I’ve opened it and I even found a way to incorporate it into the day before yesterday’s DIY post. Avon’s Ideal Flawless BB Cream is quite different compared to my beloved Garnier Miracle Skin Perfecter, Ill do the comparison further down. Firstly Avon’s BB Cream offers medium coverage with SPF 15 and I’m fine with that. I love that it didn’t seem cakey or unnatural on my face and that it stayed put all day. I use my Avon Colortrend Concealer underneath it everyday but I find that I don’t have to dust my Clear Smooth All In One Powder on everyday depending on the weather. I’ve noticed that this BB Cream has a slight shimmer to it. Not overpowering and one can hardly see it, I only noticed it on my finger tips but its something I’ve never experienced in a BB Cream.IMG_1777

Let’s get a bit comparing in here:
•This BB Cream didn’t wipe off my face (sometimes clothes) as easily as my Garnier BB Cream does and I love that.
•Its a much thinner consistency than your average BB Cream so blending with a brush is a dream even though I love my finger tips too.
•I have to however put a moisturiser or my sunscreen with a higher SPF under this BB Cream or else my face feels and looks dry.
•Putting a powder over is optional where as with my Garnier BB Cream, I had to lightly dust my powder over it to set it and prevent shine during the day.

This BB Cream works quite well in conjunction with my makeup routine and exceeded my expectations. Its definitely a notch up from the Avon foundations that I’ve tried. If you’re on a budget and wanting to spend on a good quality everyday BB Cream, then this is definitely it. At R99.95, Ill most likely add it to my shopping list again.

  1. I’ve been using the Garnier BB cream and then I moved on to Yardley’s CC cream which I love as well, but I still haven’t found my perfect match. Seriously thinking of giving the Avon BB cream a try now. Also, because of you, I have ordered my first lipstick from them 🙂

    Ps. I love the photography on your blog

  2. Speaking of personal experience, I think that the type of BB Cream that one uses depends on the skin type. Its the same with foundation.

    Hehe , you’re going to love the lipstick (I think), depending on the one you bought because its rare that I find an Avon lipstick that I actually like. I haven’t had much luck with their Colortrend lipsticks.

    Thank you so much for the beautiful compliment. I’ve been playing around with my camera lately and I’m glad its paying off.

    • Aah Thank You so much for the compliment, I’m glad you’re loving the pics.

      As for the Maybelline powder, its definitely one of my faves. Its my absolute a makeup bag staple.

      Thank you for visiting Abby! 🙂
