When you are hot and flashy like I am, foundations start to become a forbidden zone. Why? Your body core temperature rises like a million degrees(ok, it’s about 6 degrees LOL but DANG it sure feels like that) you experience foundations just MELTING off of your face during a hot flash. It’s not pretty. I’m telling you, as much as I hated having a period and was actually counting the days until menopause? Hot flashes are SO MUCH WORSE than bleeding every month. I’m one of the lucky?unlucky? women that actually gets an “aura,” or an uneasy feeling just before the hot flash happens. It’s weird-I feel anxious and my heart starts to miss a beat and then BOOM. A sudden, intense, hot feeling on my face and upper chest starts and then radiates through my whole body and it’s just horrible and HOT. My face and chest turn bright red, and most of the time I’ll start to sweat too. My hot flashes last about 30 seconds to even a few minutes. Sweaters and scarves have become off limits lately 🙁 . And ME. ME who used to sit in the house all bundled up in the winter, now wears a T-SHIRT.
So where was I? Oh, yeah LOL. I’m talking about how I can’t wear foundations anymore! So what does hot and flashy Tracy use then? THIS.
This is Vichy Idealia BB Cream and I love it.
Vichy Idealia BB Cream has become my go-to over the last few months. I REALLY love the Vichy ProEVEN BB Cream, but this? This is nice too! Vichy really makes some great BB Creams you guys! And I’m glad to have another BB option in one of my favourite brands!
Vichy Idealia BB Cream has pink corrective mineral pigments that brighten your complexion instantly. It’s enriched with Kombucha, which is a clarity-boosting active ingredient. Kombucha is a lightly effervescent fermented drink of sweetened black and/or green tea and it increases the radiance, transparency, and clarity of the skin. Day after day, Vichy Idelia BB Cream will help illuminate the skin from within!
The texture of Vichy Idealia BB Cream is DIVINE, and it’s why I’ve been reaching for it at this hot and flashy time of life. It’s hydrating, but yet not suffocating. My skin can breathe, even during a hot flash! It just glides on and melts into my skin leaving a really natural, glowing finish. I really notice that it gives a pink, glowy look to my skin, so I tend to add a bit of powder like MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Light Plus to add a bit of yellow back into my skin. But most days I don’t bother, as the less I have on my skin, the better! It’s a really lovely BB Cream, and if you’re in the market for something that’s got a bit of coverage, is lightweight and comfy? This is it!
I love how Vichy keeps on surprising me with awesome products! Such a great brand and I truly do love them!
What’s your favourite BB Cream at the moment? Or are you still a foundation gal? I’ve kinda given up on foundations at the moment-the ease of BB and CC creams are just so much more my style!
*products sent by the lovely PR whom I adore! Thoughts are mine as always because lordy, this hot and flashy gal doesn’t put up with anymore $$!!! anymore.
