Friday Find is when I dive into my stash or come up with a new product that I haven’t written about yet. Today, I decided to wear Diorskin Nude BB Creme SPF 10 in shade Fair that I hadn’t worn in a while. It was given to me about a year ago by my friend, Sybille, who found that the shade didn’t suit her.
My skintone is somewhere between Fair and Light in most brands, so I often have a tough time getting a perfect match in a BB or CC cream that doesn’t have a broad shade range. So I generally wear Diorskin Nude BB Creme in the winter when my skin is at its lightest. Right now it’s a good match. I didn’t rub it in completely so you could see the shade on my skin. In the summer, I could add CoverFX Custom Cover Drops to darken it a bit. Gotta remember that!
I love the foundations that I own. They’re lightweight and easy to apply and wear. But today my plan to go into Boston to have dinner with a friend arriving from Tampa didn’t work out. Weather in other parts of the country have greatly delayed her flights, and she gets in too late to get together. So I didn’t want to bother putting on primer and applying foundation. I opted for BB cream instead, and I decided to give Diorskin Nude BB Creme some love on this gloomy, wintry day where I was probably not going out much – its SPF level is modest at 10. I wanted to write about it because it’s a product worth knowing about.
Diorskin Nude BB Creme SPF 10 has a lightweight feel when I apply it and afterwards. I find that many BB or CC creams can be on the heavy side. It’s easy to apply with fingers. Today, I applied it with fingers and finished it off with my PUR blending sponge.
Dior describes it as “sheer coverage”, but I beg to differ. It feels very light, but I get such great coverage from Diorskin Nude BB Creme SPF 10 that I actually don’t need to put on any concealer most times. Now that’s rare!
Here’s how it’s described: “Enhanced with mineralized floral water and a blend of antioxidants the skin is moisturized, smoothed, protected and corrected with sheer coverage. Available in a range of shades to match every skin tone, the complexion is illuminated with a unique, fresh glow and dewy finish.”
Although I wish it had a higher SPF (perhaps that’s why it feels so lightweight compared to other BB/CCs), I really love the Diorskin Nude BB Creme. If you want to treat yourself, it’s worth considering. There are four shades: fair, light, medium, dark. The tube contains 1 oz., $45. It is available at Sephora, Nordstrom, Macys, Saks Fifth Avenue, and on the Dior website. Made in France.
