Sleeks Be Beautiful Blemish Balm!!!

Hello all,

hope this meets you well?

I finally got my hands on sleeks be beautiful blemish balm in medium, seriously it was hard work, 7 different stores 8 visits. It comes in 4 shades fair, light, medium (yellow in undertone) and dark (has more red in it), medium is obviously a very popular shade, anyway I finally got my hands on it and it was worth it, here's what they claim:

Its a full coverage BB cream containing red algae extract to assist in the prevention of wrinkles, normalises skin's moisture content, and promotes suppleness. It also contains vitamin C to aid in the reduction of skin discoloration, gradually repair damaged skin with the presence of peptides and prevent further damage with SPF 15 protection provided.

The 50ml black tube is housed in a black box and costs £8.99, which is fantastic value for the size, if you do not fall into the current shades at this price you can always buy two and customise to suit your needs.

As you can see from the ingredients it does contain mineral oil, which for some I know is a problem.

I love this BB cream, it is full coverage, but can be sheered out either by reducing the amount of product used or mixing it with some moisturiser. If you have oily skin you may need a good mattifying primer and powder to set, but as the weather gets colder my skin gets drier so I think this will be great for the winter months, in my limited time of use I cannot yet comment on whether it aids the reduction of discoloration etc.

I you are looking for a full coverage BB cream, especially for the darker skin girls (there are not as many options), then I would definately give this a try.
Have you tried this already, did you have the same struggles getting hold of the medium shade, have you tried any other BB creams. I would love to hear from you, thanks for reading, chat soon.
