ATOPALM BB Cream hydrates, protects, covers up complexion flaws and leaves a sheer finish for a luminous glow. Vitamin E shields against environmental stress and helps condition the skin. Mushroom extract promotes elasticity and improves the skin’s vitality.
This review is for Atopalm’s BB (Beauty Balm) Cream, which is available in Light and Medium. This BB Cream is claimed to brighten and even skin tone.
Atopalm’s BB Cream comes in an oval tube made of opaque plastic. The cap twists off and there is a circular opening from where the product dispenses. This packaging keeps the ingredients inside sanitary and stable.
This BB Cream’s formula is thin-to-medium in consistency. It gives you light to medium coverage, so those with light imperfections can wear this without adding concealer on top. The BB cream leaves a velvet finish, so you shouldn’t need to set this with powder unless you have oily or combination skin. The finish is smooth and definitely evens out your skin tone. The shade Light is a pretty neutral color, good for NC 20 skin, though I found it just a smidgen grey-toned.
When it comes to ingredients, this BB Cream has a lot to offer. Foremost, it provides full-spectrum sun protection. Plus, it contains licorice root extract (an anti-inflammatory), glycerine (for dry skin), allantoin (an anti-irritant), and tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E). Unfortunately, the one blemish this BB Cream has is the inclusion of fragrance, which is a skin irritant. There isn’t a lot of it (it’s listed toward the end of the ingredients list), but eliminating this ingredient all together would be ideal.
You also get plenty of product for the price. For $25.00 you get 2.4 ounces of product–far, far more than you get with a BB cream from companies like Clinique, Smashbox, Tarte, and the like.
