Say hello to my new favourite base product! GOSH All-In-One BB Cream*. I’ve been using it every single day for weeks, and I know it’s a definite repurchase.
It acts as a foundation, primer and moisturiser and SPF simultaneously and has just the right amount of coverage for me, somewhere between a tinted moisturiser and a light-medium coverage foundation.
There are 5 shades in the range, which doesn’t sound a lot at all, but GOSH claim that they can cater for all the skin tones under the sun between just those 5 shades with what they call ‘Colour Adapt’ technology. We’ve all seen and heard of a lot of products that claim to adapt slightly to your skintone. I’m not a million percent sure how much truth there really is to these products, but I have a perfect match in the GOSH BB Cream so frankly, I don’t care! Haha.
The 5 shades range from very, very light (that’s my shade of course! 01 Sand) right down to dark chocolate brown. It’s amazing to see a high street brand catering for Casper-skinned ladies like me and ebony beauties at the same time.
Above is the amount of product I need for my whole face – which means the 30ml tube should last me a fair while. I love the feel of this on my skin, and it’s waterproof too which means sweatproof – it was an absolute lifesaver in that little heatwave we had a couple of weeks ago (come back, sun!). It applies really well with the fingers, actually – I discovered this when my beloved Real Techniques Buffing Brush hadn’t dried from its last wash – but I still prefer to really buff it into the skin. It’s very buildable as well, you can quite comfortably add another layer if the coverage isn’t quite enough for you on a particular day without the dreaded caked look.
I find the product really moisturising – it never exacerbates the dry bits round my nose – but despite being moisturising it works nicely with my skin which as you know is super oily for the most part. It would be amazing for drier skins thanks to the hydrating properties. And obviously it scores extra points for containing SPF15!
Okay, before and after time. This is probably the first foundation review I’ve ever written where I’ve not cringed at the Before photo! My skin’s not in bad shape at the moment – thanks, Clarisonic! – but you can still get a good idea of what it looks like on the skin.
So, what do you think? Are you liking the look of the newest BB cream to hit the market? Will you be trying it out?
GOSH All-In-One BB Cream is priced at £9.99 for 30ml and is hitting Superdrug stores nationwide this week – your local one might already have it!
