Beauty Balms are all the rage these days. Magazines and t.v are flooded with commercials and advertisements touting the goodness of these new creams. And in true bandwagon fashion every cosmetics company under the sun is trying to launch their own version. So what are they and how do you choose the right one for you?
BB creams are applied to the skin to smooth and conceal. Pretty simple stuff really! After trying a few different brands I have finally declared the latest invention from Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics my BB of choice. Unlike most BB’s on the market, Glow Time by Jane, comes in 6 shades that adjust to individual skin tones so you get a perfect color match. Glow Time is a true multitasking dynamo that combines foundation, concealer, sunscreen and moisturizer in a versatile one-step product. I love easy-breezy, so anytime I can “one-step” anything I will. The number one defining feature of this BB over any other brand on the market is that it is PURE MINERAL MAKEUP and it’s gluten and vegan free. Unlike other mineral makeups Jane Iredale is 100% mineral which means they skip the irritating fillers and only put things that are nourishing and good for your skin in their product. This means less guilt for me if I have a lazy day and forget to wash my face before bed!
To apply Glow Time you just apply a drop to your hand the size of a pea. Dip finger in product and dot on to moisturized skin and blend. If you want an airbrushed look then you can use Jane Iredale pressed powder once Glow Time has absorbed into the skin (about 2 minutes). Flawless and glowing skin just got a whole lot easier!
