It looked and felt lovely in the store, but I was shocked the next day when I tried applying it and it started to crumble and break up on some parts of my skin instead of blending in smoothly! I've realised that this product doesn't like to be applied after a moisturiser and instead prefers to be put straight onto the skin. I have quite dry skin and although gentle, this product doesn't pack a moisture punch, so it's essential that I get my daily moisturiser in there. After a little bit of experimentation (and reading others blogs), I've discovered that I can keep using my greatly needed moisturiser if I apply the product using a damp foundation brush or by prepping my skin beforehand with the Clarins Flash Beauty Balm - I will post a 'Face of the Day' with this combo soon as I often wear it to work.
Application woes aside, the product really looks fantastic after it's been on the skin for about 15 minutes. You can wear it by itself but it really comes into its own if you wear it underneath your foundation because it gives such a airbrushed smoothness and the staying power is incredible. My make-up looks perfect from morning to night. Unlike some BB Creams, because of the matte finish and longevity I think it would work just fine on oily skin types and therefore would recommend it to just about anyone!
If you havn't already tried using a BB cream underneath your foundation - start doing it now! It acts as an amazing base for your make-up and I have found its helped prevent my skin getting as dry when wearing foundation every day.
Have you tried any products from the Rodial range?
