NEW Witch BB Cream - Review

Tuesday, June 26, 2012


I think the novelty of BB Creams is starting to wear thin and I agree somewhat unless said BB Cream
can offer something new that the current BB Creams on the UK market do not and the newly launched BB Cream by Witch Skin Care does just that!


Witch's BB Beauty Balm is currently only available in one shade option which is not quite light enough to be dubbed truly fair nor is it deep enough to be medium. 
Without categorising or being patronising I do feel that it will be a pretty good match to most Caucasian skin tones perhaps not those with beautiful English Rose complexions but with some blending most should find this a passable enough shade.


As with every BB Cream on the market place this has a whole slew of benefits such as being moisturising, offering light coverage, brightening and an SPF 15 but unlike traditional BB Creams this has the added benefit of a blemish busting ingredient in witch hazel extract so not only does it conceal any annoying pesky new "friends" that may appear on your face from time to time but with daily use it can help to clear the skin and keep it that way. I can't help but feel this may be the perfect product for young ladies who don't require the heavy coverage of a foundation but want something a little harder working than a bog standard tinted moisturiser, I know at 15 this is the sort of formula I would have sold my granny for!

As always I have included my mole as a reference point for coverage purposes.

The texture of this BB Cream is rather similar to the Asian formula's that I have tested,
it is thick but very easy to apply and blends out with ease, it is non sticky and oil free.
In my opinion it covers similar to a light formulated foundation - think Mac Face and Body etc,
it allows your natural skin tone to shine through but reduces and calms any redness resulting in blemishes being less noticeable. It also brightens and moisturises the skin.
When you first apply this it does look pretty wet/shiny but once allowed to dry down the finished result is dewy and natural - it took approximately 2 minutes to settle fully.
You can use this as a primer or as base, if you do use it as a base I highly recommend setting it with a powder to prolong the wear time.

Witch's BB Cream retails for £6.99/50ml and is available from most Boots and Superdrug stores.

    1. For heavy coverage I do feel you'll be hard pushed to truly find that in a BB Cream but check out some of the Asian brands as they offer far superior coverage to most UK versions :)

  10. I have Witch's Liquid Anti-Blemish Concealer and really like that. Think I'd have to try and test the colour first though, shame it only comes in one shade! x

  11. I think I might try this product if it is similar to the asian bb cream in terms of texture. Is this just one colour though? Because if so it seems abit light so I don't think I will purchase it...

    1. Sadly at the moment it is just one shade and it is a little light but hopefully new shades will pop up in the future :)

  17. Hello from a first-time reader!

    I actually gasped out loud reading this entry... and the fact that it's very similar in texture to the Asian formulae is definitely swinging this in my favour. I just hope it's light enough for me (I'm almost an English rose on a very good day, pale otherwise XD). Also, it's the same price as my usual BB cream and there's no p&p as I can just pop in store to have a look.

    BTW, thank you so much for all your reviews of the new L'Oreal range - they're really helpful.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    1. Hello :) thank you so much for your kind comment it really has made my day! So glad that this BB cream seems to be the answer for you :) it may be a tad too dark for you but definitely go in-store and swatch it as I do feel it blends out rather well :)

  18. Ooh, this doesn't look bad! Definitely looks better than the superdrug one - which had an okay texture but felt very orange when applied. This looks like it could approach my skintone.

  19. this actually looks really great. cant usually use witch products though since they usually have tea tree in, which im allergic to.
