REVIEW: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

I love trying out the newest products in makeup and beauty, and since I detest putting on makeup every day, BB Cream is right up my alley.  I was thrilled to be able to try out the new L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, thanks to SheSpeaks!

About L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream: This product gives the sheer coverage needed to create a natural bare skin finish, while delivering built-in skincare benefits. With four beautifying actions, this all-in-one innovation primes and smoothes, perfects to hide flaws, hydrates all-day, and corrects and evens skin. The product is infused with skincare ingredients like Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin for 24-hour moisturization.

To apply, simply dot on and blend with fingertips. Self-adjusting beads will instantly transform and blend to your skin tone.


Every woman wants to look their best, but let’s face it: who wants to put on a full face of makeup when just running out to do a few errands?  That’s where this BB cream comes in.

Here’s me before applying (sorry about my face…):


Oh God, do you know how hard it was to put up a pic of myself without makeup? Ugh.

Anyway, you can see I have some uneven patches on my cheek, and some darkness around the eyes.


And here’s me after applying the BB cream!  I dotted a tiny bit around my face, just putting a little extra around my eyes.  My even skin tone is smoothed out, and the darkness around my eyes is significantly lightened!  It’s not a ton of makeup, just enough to make my face look fresh.  I’m in love with this stuff!

L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Cream retails for $10.95 for 1 fl oz. It is available in four shades and is sold at mass food and drug retailers nationwide. Click here to find out more.

SheSpeaks: Ghirardelli Milk & Truffle Squares

Ghirardelli has always made my favorite chocolates.  I particularly love their Milk & Caramel and Dark Chocolate & Mint Squares.  So when I was given the chance by SheSpeaks to try out the newest flavor in their Squares line…well, who could say no to that?

The new flavor is called Milk & Truffle.  It features an outer shell of the smooth, creamy Ghirardelli milk chocolate that we all love, with a rich, darker chocolate truffle filling.

I liked these quite a bit!  I am not usually one for darker chocolates, but the milk chocolate outer layer helped balance out the darker chocolate flavor.  And yes, these squares were very rich and sweet–I was only able to eat one at a time.  That is a blessing in disguise, I suppose 🙂

These Milk & Truffle squares are perfect when you want just a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth, or need a great pick me up at the end of a long day.  On a rainy day, curl up in a comfy chair with a big fuzzy blanket, a good book, and some Ghirardelli–your day will become much better!
