Ginvera BB Cream £20

Ginvera's Green Tea Marvel Gel is already a hero product of mine so when I found out they had a BB cream I just had to try it. It contains green tea and a unique blend of antioxidants which it says help fight against free radical damage and helps prevents fine lines. 

At first I thought the formula would be too dark for me but it blends really well and has a matte finish so I don't need to wear powder over it so it gets points for being time saving. It isn't greasy and had good staying power so I didn't feel like I needed to redo my make up half way through the day. Like a good BB cream should it left my face feeling cotton soft and looking even. 

Another bonus is that it's SPF 30 so I don't need to wear extra sunscreen although I am only seeing the sun occasionally at the moment. It's really great for when I get a few spots and want coverage but not to suffocate my skin and I can still have really even finish. 

This brand from Singapore have added another must have product for everybody but anybody who has the suffered from breakouts will especially love this.
