By now, we all know what a BB cream is, right? Even Maybelline has one! I’ve professed my devotion to Dr. Jart’s Premium BB Beauty Balm all over the internet—so you may already be familiar with the brand. I think my followers on Twitter are tired of seeing my answer to my fave BB cream as “Dr. Jart+ Premium“, over and over. I finally got every last drop out of that bottle, and parting was such sweet sorrow…until I found out Dr. Jart just released a new BB cream, the Renewalist BB Beauty Balm. It’s a good thing, because I like it just as much. Let’s take a closer look!
Renewalist focuses on anti-aging properties with buildable coverage for normal or dry skin types. I find Renewalist to be a little more hydrating than Premium (in the gold tube), so if you have oily or combination skin—I’d probably opt for Water Fuse BB (blue tube), or even the new Black Label Detox BB in the black tube (which I’ll also be checking out soon) instead. It also contains an exclusive brightening complex to help even your skin tone over time, with exotic oils and Niacinamide to help boost your moisture levels. Renewalist contains a high level of UV protection with a Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide-based SPF 40.
By the way…
Did you know that in the states—the new FDA regulations for sunscreen state that they’re not allowed to be listed at any number above SPF 50+? So what was once an SPF 70 can now only be labeled as an “SPF 50+”. I thought that was interesting. The proposed changes should go into effect in about six months.
When I wear any Dr. Jart+ BB cream, I wear it, and nothing else foundation or skincare-wise. I feel like with the Dr. Jart BB’s, they really are the best for me up against most of the other BB creams I’ve tried from other brands. There’s something about their products that my skin really likes—and I’m pretty much obsessed. I’m also currently testing out this really cool mask, Water Fuse Water-Max Sleeping Mask. You sleep with it on, and it’s supposed to replenish the moisture that your skin loses at night. I’ll update soon!
The only downside, is that with Dr. Jart+, it’s a universal color. I’ve had people with medium skin tones tell me they can use Dr. Jart’s BB creams; but anyone more fair than me, or darker than medium—it may look a little off. If you have mature skin that lacks moisture in the light-to-medium range, I’d grab a sample of this at Sephora on your next trip.
