Monday Makeup : Physicians Formula Super BB Cream, Concealer, and Power Review, Swatches, and Photos

February 4, 2013


Hello Friends! I am trying to force myself to get more reviews up. I am always running behind with letting you guys know what I think of certain products. So from now on.. You can expect a beauty review every Monday! 

Today I would like to talk to you about the.. 


Physicians Formula BB Line Products.

 I have been testing them out for a while and feel now is the perfect time to do a quick review on all 3 products. 


Physicians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm Cream 

All-in-1 Miracle Cream

Ultra-blendable and lightweight cream effortlessly glides on, instantly infusing moisture, refining skin's surface and providing protection from the environment. Skin looks and feels smooth, glowing & naturally flawless.
Ultra-versatile beauty balm simplifies your morning beauty routine by delivering the benefits of Moisturizer, Foundation & SPF protection in one easy to use product!



The BB Cream.

$14.95 , CVS

 Anymore if its a tinted moisturizer they call it a BB Cream. Personally I don't feel this is a true BB cream.. But it does say it has 10 Beauty Benefits..

Smoothing
Moisturizing
Protecting
Firming
Prime and Filling
Perfecting
Correcting
Brightening
Line Softening
Long Wearing. 

That's a lot of words to describe this product!! 

Picked out shade..



and I must say.. it does separate inside the tube. You need to shake it.. and honestly.. I don't like that very much. 


For the drugstore BB Creams this one is a bit thicker. 


The color was a pretty good match for me.. but I always blend down the neck to ensure it fades out easily into the skin. Coverage is a little better than most of the other tinted moisturizers and commercial BB Creams. It does feel pretty moisturizing on the skin.. and its kinda dewy. Coverage is still pretty sheer with a semi matte look but you can build it up quiet easily. 

Now lets move on to the Super BB Cream All in 1 Beauty Balm Concealer. 

$12.95, CVS

Brush on this miracle cream to instantly diminish the appearance of: Dark Circles, Puffiness, Imperfections, Blemishes, Redness, and Uneven Skin Tone.

Super BB Concealer is your super tool for targeted application and was designed to perfectly complement the Super BB Cream & Powder.



This is a pen concealer which is actually a little more stiff than the normal concealer brush.. which I like. This one has a bunch of beauty benefits too. 


It came out of the brush easily for me and I went with the light/medium color. It glides right on and 


blends easily with the warmth of my fingers. It does leave a hydrating finish. 


of highlighting. It blended right in with no problems at all. The formula is great for mature skin and fine lines because its so hydrating. Many of the Physicans Formula concealers are pretty heavy and dry. This on the other hand is bit more sheer and much more hydrating. A very different kind of concealer. I don't think this would work if you had bad dark circles under your eyes but if for me.. I don't need a ton of coverage and this worked great for me. 

Now lets move on to the Powder that goes with the rest of the collection. 

Physicians Formula Super BB All in 1 Beauty Balm Powder

1st ever Beauty Balm Powder form for a smoothing effect that instantly diffuses the appearance of imperfections, evens out skin tone and minimizes the appearance of pores.

Weightless powder acts as a protective veil from UV damage & moisture loss so skin looks and feels smooth, glowing and naturally flawless.

Use with the Concealer & Cream for the ultimate, high-performance wear.

$13.95, CVS


This also claims to have 10+ Beauty Benefits too. 


It comes in standard packaging. 


with a hidden mirror and brush.. 


 The brush isn't so bad.. 

When used with the other 2 products from this line, I think it gives a pretty good coverage. 


For me, its a bit too dry. I already have dry skin so I use this super light. 


Only in the middle of my face. 


It also makes your make up last much longer too. 


So for me.. I like to use the BB Cream and Concealer without the powder most of the time. And there have been a few times when I just grabbed the powder and just used it alone. I think the BB cream is nice. I like the feel of it.. However it only comes in 2 shades which makes it hard to get an exact match. I don't really have a problem with it. The light/medium works good with my skin tone. 

I consider this a daytime makeup. I like to wear it when I am just working around the house and running errands. Its pretty fast to blend in and works great to give me just a little coverage. I wouldn't recommend this for date night or anything but its a great quick fix for days when you don't really want to wear a lot. If you have oily skin.. using the powder will really help. I think the powder is good but its just too much for my dry skin. I do wear it.. just on its own for a even lighter coverage. 


I recommend trying all these products on your own only if you find them on sale. And think about what kind of skin you have. If you need a fuller coverage, be sure to get the powder.. If you have really dark circles, you should reach for a different concealer   and remember if you buy these at any of your local drugstores.. you can return them if you need to. I think I would repurchase the concealer for sure.. and maybe the BB cream but I will not be purchasing the powder again. I have a lot of powders that do the exact same thing. And again.. its just too drying for me to wear on top of the bb cream. I like a more dewy look and this just gives you such a matte look. Again.. perfect for oily skin.

Over all, I like them. I think Physicians Formula is stepping up their game. I am still waiting on a really good drugstore BB cream but so far, they all still kinda fall short. However you can really get some good coverage from this line if you use all 3 products together. You can also wear it as I do.. just for light coverage. I like that it evens out my skin and gives me a little coverage on days I don't want to wear a full face of makeup! I should mention that the packaging on these products is pretty darn cute. Who doesn't love sparkles!?

Have you tried any of these products? Do you agree with my thoughts? Let me know!
