So!
I jumped on the latest craze to hit the beauty scene - the beauty balm, also known as "BB cream".
 
Created by a German dermatologist in the early 1960's, popularized in Japan and Korea, and currently making a wave in the Western markets. 

Beauty balms have been a hit with many because it promises to replace many of the cosmetics we use on a day to day basis.  

My usual beauty routine consisted of purchasing jar after jar of Bare Minerals, a popular line of mineral-based makeup.
 
And for years, it's worked for me.
 
But recently , I decided to change my routine, and so I purchased my very first beauty balm from

 
 
I picked this one up because I have a bit of dryness and I'm forever in search of a dewy, luminous glow.

This cream is a bit thick and to apply, I put on a little at a time to create more coverage, so it's definitely buildable. 
 
It smells a little like sunscreen but the scent fades away once applied. 

Here's Too Faced description:
What it is:
A multi-benefit BB cream that tints, primes, nourishes, prevents, and protects skin in one easy step.

What it does:
This innovative cream offers both makeup and skincare benefits in one effortless step. Achieve better-than-real looking skin today and healthier skin long term by using this antiaging, multi-mineral complex that promotes cell health, strengthens skin's elasticity, and enhances luminosity. This versatile tinted skin perfector instantly delivers oil-free hydration and primes the skin while protecting with a chemical-free SPF 20 UVA/UVB broad-spectrum sunscreen. Wear any of the shades alone or under foundation to achieve your ideal level of luminous coverage.

What else you need to know:
Beauty Balms or B.B. Creams were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile “five-in-one” formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skin care ingredients; moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; camouflage and color correct the skintone; and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skincare benefits or used on their own as an instant beautifier.

You might like this if :
You like a Light shimmer on your face
You are okay with light coverage 
You have combination/dry skin
You prefer glowy/dewy skin
You are looking for a quick and easy routine 

You might dislike this if:
You don't like shimmer on your face
You are prone to oily skin
You want heavier coverage 
You prefer matte 

Would I repurchase?
 Nope. Way too pricey and this formula is not something "out of this world". 
Although it did provide a nice glow it kind of feels like I'm
wearing shimmery tinted moisturizer, it covered up a bit but not as much as I would've liked.
 
But I definitely will be checking out this kit, exclusive to Sephora with an introduction kit of favorite beauty balms samples! I'll continue my search for the perfect balm!
 
Hope you enjoyed! xoxo, Cat
