When Dr.Jart+ first launched BB creams stateside last year, few people understood what they were. Foundation? Primer? Moisturizer? Now, people can’t get enough of these innovative creams that combine all 3 morning basics to create a one-step product. But as Bianca so eloquently said in 10 Things I Hate About You, there is a difference between like and love.
Because, don’t get me wrong, I really like my Dr Jart+ water fuse BB cream/ Sketchers, but I love my new Dr. Jart+ Renewalist Beauty Balm ($36)/Prada backpack. Deciding between the two really depends on how much coverage you want that day. This version has the same easy and light application as before but more coverage and a higher SPF, making it essential for hot, sticky days when foundation seems too heavy.
The second BB cream, that recently launched from the black label detox line, called Dr. Jart+ Black Label Detox BB Cream ($36) has luxe ingredients- like caviar for purifying and regenerating skin- making it another great summer skincare option.
The other new product from the renewalist line is the Dr. Jart+ Renewalist Melting Cream ($38) that, as the name suggests, literally melts into your skin leaving behind a faint, fresh lemon scent. It has brightening and anti-aging properties, creating the perfect smooth and glowly base for makeup. Also: it’s solid and balm-like so you can take it on the plane without any of the liquid restrictions cramping your beauty routine during your summer travels.
Dr.Jart+ products are available at Sephora and Sephora.com.
