Today I’m reviewing the Super BB #InstaReady BB Cream from Physician’s Formula that I received at their booth at the Generation Beauty event.
InstantPerfection: Ultra-lightweight formula glides on effortlessly, instantly smoothing & rebalancing skin with dual-sphere particles that absorb oil but not moisture for perfectly balanced skin and a smooth semi-matte finish. Complexion is instantly selfie-ready * Multi-tasking BB cream neutralizes skin-tone imbalances, minimizes shine and visibly reduces pores, instantly hiding imperfections and smoothing the appearance of fine lines. *Featuring InstaFilter Technology, a proprietary blend of mattifying and pore balancing
And for those with sensitive skin, here’s the ingredients list:
Water/Eau, Cyclopentasiloxane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butylene Glycol, Zinc Oxide, Bis-PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, Dimethicone, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Chloride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Fomes Officinalis (Mushroom) Extract, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol Crosspolymer, VP/VA Copolymer, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Alumina, Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Amodimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Castor Oil Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Hydroxylpropyl Methylcellulose, Laureth-12, Mica, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polysilicone-11, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Carbonate, Silica, Sodium Hydroxide,Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Xanthan Gum, Chlorphenesin, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol. May Contain / Peut Contenir: Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide
My Experience: I received the Super BB Cream in shade Light. It seems to only be available in two shades – Light and Light / Medium – which is kind of ridiculous, because there are more than just two skin tones out there!
The BB Cream is fairly lightweight and evens out my skintone, giving it a natural semi-matte look. I’ve had no skin sensitivity issues when wearing it. I find that it does minimize my pores and blurs any fine lines that I’m pretending that I don’t have (haha).
The packaging mades no mention of SPF, but it does contain Zinc Oxide, and *might* contain Titanium Dioxide, so it may provide a minimal amount of sun protection. But I’ve been mixing it with my Paula’s Choice SPF 50 sunscreen when I wear it because I burn very easily and do not want to take a chance.
Overall verdict, I do like this BB Cream, it works well for my skin. But I don’t love it because it does not specify an SPF factor. If this BB cream contained SPF 30 or higher, I would be in love.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤
