Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream

Press Sample

BB creams are incredibly popular for summer. I've tested a few of them from various brands and I've liked what I tried. Currently, I'm using the Anti-Aging BB Cream from Hydroxatone. Read on for my thoughts on the product.

BB creams are all-in-one products that are multi-functional. They protect, hydrate, moisturize, and conceal. They're great for summer because you only have to wear one product and it's incredibly lightweight.

Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream
Price: $39

Available shades: light, medium, tan, deep tan, and dark
I'm using the shade Medium and it blends with my skin tone perfectly. It's awesome that there are 5 shades  because many brands offer only 3.

Features & Benefits
  • For all skin types
  • Broad spectrum SPF 40 for great sun protection
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin will look more youthful!
  • Contains lots of Vitamin C
  • Evens out skin tone and brightens dullness
  • Plant extracts help calm irritated skin
  • Can be used with or without foundation
  • Potent antioxidants reduce free radical damage in the skin

I love that this BB cream has SPF 40. That's some major sun protection and more than others provide. 
Also, the de-aging properties definitely add value to this product. I'm only 25 years old, but it's a perfect time for me to start caring for my skin and looking into products that keep it looking youthful. Anti-aging products aren't only meant for mature skin! 

Foundations can be harsh on skin and cause irritations, but creams like this have an opposite effect. They actually help soothe your skin. My skin never feels irritated with this product.

The cream blends well and covers my imperfections with a natural looking finish. My skin looks hydrated and even. If you want light coverage, you can use it by itself with a little concealer if needed. If you want extra coverage, you can use it under foundation.  I have used it under foundation and on its own - I like it both ways.

In conclusion, I think this is a great BB cream to try if you're willing to spend the money. Is it worth it? Yes, I definitely think so. You get a multi-functional product that can take the place of a few others (primer, moisturizer, foundation, concealer). It's a perfect product for the hot summer months.

Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream is available for purchase at Ulta.
