This is the first time I have tried a Rodial product and I have to say I'm pretty impressed! The more I researched about Rodial BB Venom the more amazed I became... First of all, it's the first time I am trying a BB cream, and what a fantastic choice I made! Last year everyone went through a bit of a BB cream craze, I was reluctant to try it because I have combo/oily skin type that is prone to acne, so it does get really oily in the summer, my regular foundations have trouble to stay on, so I stay away from moisturising foundations... During winter generally a combo/oily skin type is mostly under control and can even get some dehydrated patches, so if ever winter is the time I can try something that has hydrating effects...

BB stands for Beauty Balm and was originally created in Germany in the 60s by dermatologist Dr. Christine Schrammek whose target it was to help protect her patience's skin after plastic surgery... In the 80s BB cream has become a much desired make-up product in Korea, where women desire to have a healthy, porcelain-perfect looking skin... And finally some odd 30 years later it's easily available at most cosmetic brands! A bit of history for you there...

BB creams tend to have a slightly unusual colour with grey tones, but generally after you work it into the skin it adopts the natural shade of your skin, depending on the actual product... They can be used in place of a foundation or as a base depending on the coverage you desire... BB creams in general only come in a few colours, have an SPF in them, are hydrating and have a medium coverage, so it's like a foundation and skincare in one!

Rodial SPF 15 BB Venom Skin Tint comes in three colours a light, medium, and dark, the one I have is in Capri, which is the light shade and it seems to suit my skin very well now at my lightest... Coverage wise it would be perfect for someone who generally doesn't need much concealing, but I have few acne scars time to time that so I need extra cocealing... But it's a lovely light-weight skin tint that gives you that natural look... On top of it I use my Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation in Rich Vanilla that adds a little more coverage and colour... 

This BB Skin Tint would be amazing on dry skin and for women who don't like wearing foundation in general as it is so light and beautifying... The Skin Tint and the Eye Brightening Concealer have light reflecting particles to give you that healthy radiance and sun-kissed glow... Fantastic products for a younger looking and flawless skin! Rodial BB Eye comes in two shades, lightest and darkest...

Rodial BB Venom is a serious skincare product range with fantastic active ingredients:

- "SYN®-AKE Neuropeptide which inhibits neuro-mediators implicated in the contraction of innervated muscle cells, thus providing a mild botox-like effect.

- Hyaluronic Filling Spheres™ works to volumise the skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

- Hydromanil provides 24 hour hydration by retaining water in the skin whilst smoothing and retexturising." [feelunique.com]

One word - amazing!
