Avon Ideal Flawless 10 in 1 BB cream

As BB cream are getting more popular, lots of brands are realising their versions, from  drugstore to HE. One of them is Avon.

What Avon says:
Light formulation cream, infused with vitamine E and minerals. Evens out skin tone, hydrates and reduces redness. Covers imperfections and smooths out skin. Skin looks improved even after removal of the cream.

Unlike most brands, Avon BB cream is available in larger shade range. It has  SPF 15, and package contains 30 ml/1 fl. oz.

My impressions:
Cream is thicker, like liquid foundation. It's hydrating without been greasy. Goes on smooth and absorbs quickly, leaving soft and silky skin. Coverage is light to medium (thicker layer). It won't hide imperfections completely, but it will even out the skin tone, and reduce redness. Doesn't set in fine lines, but it can make pores more visible, due to shimmer.

Cream contains fine gold shimmer that gives skin radiant glow, so it's suitable for dry to normal skin.
If you have combination to oily skin, you can stil use it, it's stable on the skin, barelly transfers or fade troughout the day, and skin stayes oil free for hours, and shine can be removed with loose/pressed powder.
It can also be used as a natural highlighter.

I suggest, you use this cream only in daytime, since shimmer is really visible in artificial light (more visible in RL, pics don't pick it up as much).

Once removed with makeup remover, skin remains soft, silky and lightly glowing. If you look really close you can still see some shimmer on the skin, so I recomend thourough washing.

Cream has slightly unpleasant  scent, which fades quickly once applied to skin.

All in all, I like the cream, but I wish they didn't add shimmer, so it would work for all skin types.

If you decide to buy Avon BB cream, get testers firts, shades don't corelate with other Avon foundations.
