BB Cream : SANTEE Aqua Stylish Silky Milk Foundation

Hi Lovelies

 I bought this BB Cream at Pennywise about a month ago, while they were putting out their newer stocks one morning. So when I saw this at the counter for TTD $14.95 I thought why not? They had about three versions of the Santee BB Creams, but the one I bought was just recently stocked. The darkest tone unfortunately was number 12,  the sales clerk tried searching for a  darker colour in the other versions to work with my skin tone, but was not successful eventually gave up and told me that they hardly ever see the darker shades..I was still glad to try it out after all it came with sunscreen, and was reasonably priced.

On The Packaging:

"BB Cream combines various benefits all in one. Color control, isolation, whitening, moisturizing, sun protection and skin texture repair. Special multivitamin added to bring out the inner bright & shine of your skin. Experience the natural fresh makeup."

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Sea Salt, Triethonolamine, Ozokerite, Beeswax, Mineral Oil, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Calcium Stearate, Aluminum Stearate, Sorbitan isostearate, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Cyclomethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Cyclopentasiloxane (and) Dimethicone, Kaolin, Silica Imidazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance, Titatium Dioxide, Mica, Iron Oxides.

     This BB Cream comes in twelve (12) shades and is thick and creamy, it seems more like a light to medium foundation in texture, than what I expected of a BB Cream but the name includes foundation so it makes up for that. in the picture below you can see it gives my face a light glow or dewy look, and it seems to blend away light imperfections without looking heavy or "cakey" on my skin.
     I used this for work, and it lasted for a few hours, but I'm the kind of person that needs too blot during the course of the day and I did get some fading along my oily areas of my face. Overall for me, the price was very good and I've been using it for a few weeks off and on, and have not experienced any major breakouts besides the ones that take place during that "special" time of the month.
     What I personally don't like about this cream is one or two ingredients, its not as "organically"  friendly as the Beauty Treats BB Cream, but if that's not a hindrance to you...Hey you can give it a try!
