I like cacti. I live in Texas now, so I sort of have to. Tumbleweeds and cacti. So obviously the Agave Cactus Sun BB Cream by Skinfood sounded delectable to me. I love Skinfood products in general, and the packaging on this one was cute. It also had a high SPF, which is probably invaluable to a pale snow queen like myself. Probably.
UV Protection viagra online (SPF36 PA+++)
Cools and hydrates skin
Full-size product comes with a sponge applicator (which I don’t find very hygienic, but it can be removed)
Comes in two shades: #1 (for yellow undertones) and #2 (for pink undertones)
The Skin Food Agave Cactus Sun BB Cream SPF36 PA+++ contains the extracts of the “moisture reservoir”, Agave and Cactus. This watery and fresh bb cream replenishes and repairs skin with endless moisture. Skin worried by dehydration, dullness or fine lines could be treated and cured. Fortified with whitening agent, Arbutin, it brightens complexion and reduces spots. Polyadenylic Acid and Peptides help vitalizes and energizes. After use, skin regains elasticity, glow and youthfulness.
This stuff is pretty thick. I tend to like BB creams that are lightweight and runnier. Either way, this was easy enough to blend but didn’t absorb into my skin well. I blame the sunscreen aspect.
As I bought samples of this, I’m not sure whether I got #1 or #2, but it oxidized well enough into my skin without any issues. The coverage is medium, which is nice. This product also has a pleasant, earthy scent. Think cactus and aloe. It’s different, but I liked it. What I didn’t like was how greasy this product left my face. Due to the high SPF, it didn’t absorb that well and I had to blot countless times throughout the day… as soon as 20 minutes after application. Sick. But kind of expected… as pale as I am, I prefer low or no-SPF BB creams for this reason. On a final note, it evened out my skin tone a lot, so that’s a plus.
Also, I’m honestly not that red-tinted, promise. My face is the same color as my wrists, but I guess they like to photograph differently. Such is life.
There are a bunch of other products in Skinfood’s Agave Cactus line–I haven’t tried them, but I imagine they are awesome. I’d probably like them more than the BB cream, anyway. From left: Agave Cactus Toner, Agave Cactus Cream, Agave Cactus Emulsion, and Agave Cactus Serum. Has anyone tried any of these? Good? Bad? Love? Hate?
Pros: High SPF (if you’re into that), super moisturizing, good coverage
Cons: Not-so-good oil control and absorption. Average price for a BB cream, but higher than I’d spend for this… thank God for samples.
Final Verdict: Not for me, but if you have dry skin you might adore it! You can find it for ~$19 USD at sasa.com or ~$16 on eBay.
