Dotting each i and crossing every t in intriguing and innovative, the BB cream pioneer, Dr. Jart+ has just come out with a Night Beauty Balm. Quite possibly the first BB formula without sunscreen, this latest pigmented treatment is flexible enough to be worn overnight. Falling asleep with makeup on has never felt more rebellious. And now, it’s actually good for you!
Originating in Korea, traditional BB creams are a hybrid of a high performance sunscreen and a tinted moisturizer. Extremely popular and very much effective, these daytime staples are part of every major beauty brand nowadays. Having little in common with the classic, the latest from Dr. Jart+ is much lighter in consistency and comes in one universal shade. Don’t let that scare you, however. This hydrating gel is pretty impressive.
Heavy on the treatment benefits, the Night Beauty Balm is loaded with energizing and anti-aging ingredients. Parched and dehydrated complexions will love this formula that is fueled by the healing Nordenau Water from Germany. With collagen boosting peptides, skin brightening antioxidants, and nourishing Moringa Seed Extract, this mild botanical compound is gentle yet potent. Free of alcohol, parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, and artificial fragrance, it is a safe choice for any skin type.
More hydrating than moisturizing, the gel based BB is actually clear in color. The encapsulated pigment appears white but bursts during application and releases the color that self-adjusts to create a bare skin effect. Because of its fast drying nature, blend it in carefully to avoid streaking. Subtle and forgiving, the neutral tones of this one-shade-fits-all Dr. Jart Beauty Balm blur imperfections and create a soft focus effect.
Sheer and slightly dewy, it feels cooling and refreshing on contact. Part skincare, part makeup, this unique Dr. Jart+ multitasker is ideal for anyone in search of a one step fix. The lightweight texture of this Beauty Balm makes it a perfect pick for the warmer season ahead. Whether you want to look flawless with minimal effort after sundown or you wish the evening look would double as your bedtime routine, this crafty treatment does it all.
P.S. It has passed the test of staying on my face and off the pillowcase at night. I have a sneaky suspicion, this could make for a great in-flight treat.
Dr. Jart+ Night BB Beauty Balm retails for $38 (1.7 oz) and is available at Sephora.com.
