La Mav Organic BB Cream Review + Discount
For easy days, when I want something light and quick to apply, that will give me enough coverage to look pulled-together, I love using a BB Cream. They can generally be applied with just the fingertips, even the skin tone and provide some coverage, whilst also hydrating the skin.
The award-winning range of skincare and cosmetics is Australian made & owned, Australian Certified Organic, Cruelty Free, and is free of harsh chemicals, fillers, talc, sulphates, GM ingredients, parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, artificial colours and fragrances.
I've been using the La Mav Organic BB Creme for a few weeks now, and I must say I love it each time.
Benefits & Ingredients
The La Mav Organic BB Creme doubles as a foundation and moisturiser, plus offers natural UV protection. It also works well as a primer underneath a powder foundation for extra smooth application and extra coverage.
Vitamin C and Rosehip Oil help treat inflammation, deliver antioxidants, as well as offer anti-ageing benefits and nourish the skin. The BB Creme also contains Aloe Vera, which is anti-inflammatory, healing and hydrating.
Consistency & Application
The Organic BB Creme is quite a thick cream, but it spreads very quickly and easily with the fingertips, a brush or sponge. I simply dispense 1-2 pumps, dot around the face and spread with my fingers. I've also used a brush to apply, but I find it can soak up the product too much, so I prefer my fingertips. It also makes it super quick for lazy days!
Coverage & Shade
The La Mav Organic BB Creme is available in two shades, Light and Medium, so keep that in mind. The limitation of shades is the only negative I have with this BB Creme. My skin tone is light - medium, with neutral undertones. The La Mav Organic BB Creme in the shade LIGHT matches my skin tone perfectly.
I really love the coverage this provides - it is medium coverage, and could be built up with additional layers. The finish is satin, neither dewy nor matte, and it feels so weightless on the skin once set. If I'm after more coverage, or a more polished look, I use the La Mav Organic BB Creme as a base with a tinted setting powder over the top.
The BB Creme stays put all day, doesn't separate or fade, and isn't oily or greasy. Paired with a little cheek + lip tint and I'm set.
The BB Creme is packaged in a sleek pump dispenser, with a protective cap. It fits nicely into my make-up bag, and it would be so convenient to toss into a beach or gym bag for application on the go.
Overall & Discount
I really love the La Mav Organic BB Creme, for its multi-purpose applications, and how easy it is to use and wear. If I could change one thing, it would be to have additional shades in the line. Other than that, it is absolutely perfect. I also love that it doubles as skincare, and has proven anti-ageing benefits.
