Bourjois 8 in 1 BB cream foundation in Golden beige
Winters were so harsh on my skin and along with a skin care experiment gone wrong, my skin got flaky and horrible. I literally had to apply petroleum jelly on my skin round the clock for two days to control the flakiness.
During those time, obviously applying foundation or any sort of makeup meant disaster.
I was hunting for a light weight tinted cream that would give me even skin tone without drying it out any further.
I was introduced to this BB cream from Bourjois by an SA who said it would be perfect for me. After trying out my stint with BB creams of various brands, I decided to give this one a try.

Perfecting, smoothening, anti fatigue, anti shine, anti ageing, targeted correction, hydration and SPF.
It comes in a shiny black compact case with a generous mirror which swivels and can be adjusted to suit our needs. The mirror is more than sufficient to do touch ups and the entire compact case feels sturdy and travel friendly. The case has a magnetic closure.
The foundation/BB cream is very creamy and silky in texture. It sets to a satiny and glowy finish which was a boon to my dry parched skin.
The foundation compact comes with a useless sponge applicator which I immediately threw out. I use my real techniques expert face brush or my fingers to blend this product. I tried using a wedge but I feel it drinks up too much product.

Application is easy as the product blends well owing to its consistency. Once applied the products stays easily for 6-7 hours and when used under a proper base, it lasts throughout the day. It feels very light and almost second-skin like.
Again, due to the texture, it needs to be set with a powder especially in the under eye area without which it tends to settle in the fine lines on humid days.
It imparts medium coverage. It covers minor imperfections, redness and evens out my skin tone to a great extent. My skin tone is NC 40 in MAC and this Golden beige shade is a perfect match.
Presence of SPF 20 makes it a pleasure to wear during day time.
It retails at INR. 1050/- (approx) which is quite high but almost all Bourjois products are priced this way.
Key Highlights of the product:
Lovely and useful packing
Perfect Match for NC40 skin tone
Natural looking glowy finish
Has SPF 20
Creases mildly during hot and humid climates
Not for oily skin

If you are suffering from combination-dry skin like me, and if you are able to find your perfect match, then this is definitely something to look for.
Available at all Bourjois counters and in Chennai, it is also available at a beauty shop near hamley's in phoneix mall.
