A few weeks ago, I embarked on L'oreal's new Nude Magique BB Cream whilst I was "browsing" around Boots. As much as I am on a strict budget, I gave it a 10seconds thought and purchased it anyway.

This claims to give 24hour hydration to your skin, but I haven't exactly noticed much about this factor, if you have or about to try it, let me know if you have noticed anything of this hydration malarkey. It comes with SPF12 - typical of BB creams to have SPF but I'm surprised how low it's SPF is. BB creams are normally advertised to have a little bit more than just SPF12, but I guess this is is just me comparing it to the Asian products and let's face it SPF12-15 should be enough for the typical British weather (but I would wear a little higher on a sunny day).
Overall, I like this product. It's unlike the Garnier BB Cream where it's just a tinted moisturiser with very low coverage (or none at all)- a waste of money dare say. Nude Magique has coverage as it is build-able. The down-side of course, it will not (on my skin anyway) make my skin look like it's "bare" but it does give me a good glow and a hint of colour to get me out of being a pale Asian (I must note though, the colour does have a touch of pink undertones, but it goes on fine if you have Asian skin like mine so long as you watch the amount you build-up).
This one gave hope that maybe not all western BB creams are that bad. This one as an individual product worked out fine. Will I try another BB cream? ....only if it's on offer (I'm in a bad case of still being a poor student and unemployed).
Also I would like to say a MUCH MUCH MUCH belated "Happy New Year". I have been keeping myself busy even during my Christmas break. And since semester2 of uni started, over the couple of months the work just kept on piling (and the pile is still lurking since my procrastination has grown within me once again the last few weeks). However, I am enjoying this. I enjoy this new change in life. I enjoy of not about changing myself, it was all about improving myself.
