Expanding on the exquisite spa grade skincare, Karin Herzog just launched a tightly edited range of complexion enhancing products and has branched flawlessly into color territory. Alongside four hue specific finishing powders, a brand new BB Cream grabbed my attention because if it’s tinted, subtle and shimmer free, I want it. If you’re always on the lookout for a matte finish that isn’t flat, a hint of color that sort of ‘connects the dots’ to make your skin appear even toned and radiant, gurl, the search is over. Also, it’s made in Switzerland. Read: Euro chic.
First things first: ingredient highlights. The latest Karin Herzog innovation delivers on point color properties with major skincare perks in its carefully crafted botanical blend. Formulated with Marshmallow Absolue (yes, it does indeed have a light aroma that makes it good enough to eat) it calms, reduces redness, and soothes sensitive or irritated skin. Both emollient and anti-inflammatory, this delicious sounding extract also heals and stimulates cell rejuvenation, making it a very well rounded anti-ager. Serious antioxidant protection, courtesy of Indian Gooseberry Extract, guards against free radical damage and provides long term regenerating benefits.
The new Karin Herzog BB Cream comes in one shade. The universal ‘Medium’ will cover an extremely wide range as the tint is rather sheer and melts into the skin. The light coverage via Natural Clay is completely natural looking, long lasting, non-drying, and will never settle into your lines. Thankfully, it also doesn’t oxidize mid-afternoon and won’t leave you a suspicious shade of orange. A healthy dose of Hyaluronic Acid assures your skin will always stay plump and fresh while a touch of Mica serves light reflecting perfection.
Lastly, while the concept of a BB cream is usually associated with a built-in SPF, the new Karin Herzog launch offers a minor amount of Titanium Oxide, which acts as a light sun filter. Since the creamy texture borders on whipped (gotta be that Marshmallow again) and is completely non-greasy, you can easily layer it on top of your usual sunscreen with great results. Not to mention, a perfect option for an evening outing when foundation is, literally, too much. With longer and hopefully warmer days ahead, this is so becoming my after hours go-to.
