IMAN Skin Tone Evener BB Creme Review

 

I recently had the opportunity to try the new IMAN Skin Tone Evener BB Cream. I was unsure of what color to choose but I ended up picking the Sand Light.  

As far as the packaging it comes in a nice squeeze tube bottle. It's simple so I like it.

 This is about a pea size amount.
 Swatched in natural light.
Completely blended in. It does give a bit of a glow to your skin. 

IMAN Skin Tone Evener BB Cream contains an SPF 15 and is suppose to hydrate your skin and even out your complexion. It contains botanical extracts and multivitamins. It comes in 6 different shades.

I've been using this for about a week already. When I used it the first time I intended to use it on it's own but I quickly realized that this was nowhere near enough coverage for me. I have used asian bb creams and have had no insecurities wearing solely those on they're own. The IMAN BB Creme is very sheer. It was too sheer for my liking so I ended up adding a little foundation to cover up the redness on my cheeks and discoloration on my chin. With that being said over the past week I have still been using it as my moisturizer. I do love that it contains an SPF and all the antioxidants which are great for your skin. I have had no breakouts from this so that's great. 

The color in sand light that I chose was a good match. I wear shade 4 in Urban Decay Naked Skin and NC25 to 30 in MAC for reference.

Overall I wouldn't recommend this if your looking for something with any coverage as this is so sheer, but if you want something to moisturize and hydrate your face with that has an SPF then check it out. 

You can find this at your local Ulta, Walmart, Target, and Sears for $20. You can also find it at http://www.imancosmetics.com/bbcreme .

I've been laying off foundation on "good skin days" and pushing my BB cream forward. I do like how it hides my imperfections without the heavy coverage though.

That's too bad about the coverage. I've been wanting to try it but that's the part that keeps holding me back. I prefer a BB cream that can be worn alone!

Thanks girls!

@Khalia, I agree I was hoping for a decent amount of coverage but it just doesn't get the job done with this alone.
