BB Plus+ Illumination Facial Crème brings a summery glow

This is the time of summer when everyone I know is looking golden — except for me that is. I don’t sit in the sun and I don’t faux tan. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to have a special glow like everyone else. That’s where BB Plus+ Illumination Facial Crème from Gerard Cosmetics by Whitening Lighting comes in. They offered to send this for review and the pale BIZ partner said ok.

Last year when Makeup Wars reviewed bronzing products I really didn’t have much to share since I hadn’t really paid much attention to this category of the cosmetic world. They made me feel a little behind times though and since then I’ve branched out a bit to fit in a little more, especially on special evenings.

BB Plus+ Illumination Facial Crème ($36) is a luminous cream product that adds a glow to my skin with light reflecting particles. This is a one shade product that will do different things for different skintones. For me it adds in radiance and some color. I wear it in several ways but it can also be used alone if you are careful not to overdo the amount you use.

1) I mix it in with foundation to add an all over glow and a touch more color than I’d normally have. The key is to use a tiny bit since a little goes a long way.

2) I also use it as a highlighter on specific areas like my cheekbones.

BB Plus+ Illumination Facial Crème will help blur imperfections and we all want that. The latest Makeup Wars was all about what I do to blur pores. The best thing about this gluten free, hydrating creme is the pretty golden glow it gives.

BB+ Illumination Facial Creme reminds me of sunshine in a tube. It’s going to be different things for different people. If you have darker skin or tan/faux tan then you’ll end up with a gorgeous radiance. If you are Snow White pale you’ll also end up with that radiance but also a little extra color.

I may not be a bronze goddess but I am a glowing one when I wear BB Plus+ Illumination Facial Crème. — Marcia
