Guerlain BB Hydra Super Aqua SPF


Sunscreen is incredibly important and it is something many of us can slack off with. When do I put on sunscreen if I am following a skincare regimen? What if I want to put on makeup? What if I don't like the greasy feeling?


Well newsflash, if you don't wear sunscreen, you can develop skin cancer, sun spots, etc. and then you'll want to put on makeup to cover it up. So take that first step and find yourself a foolproof way to treat your skin that includes SPF. Guerlain, which is one of my all-time favorite brands, made this BB Cream tinted SPF 25 and infused it with the infamous Super Aqua-Serum. In a single step, it provides instant and long-lasting hydration, smoothes out wrinkles and fine lines, and evens out the complexion making it an awesome 2-in-1 option!


Guerlain, which is produced in France, is one of the oldest perfumers in the world. Even though it is advertised to be light in texture, I found that it was a bit on the medium side of texture and felt like a sticky sunscreen. It comes in two shades, light and medium, and I use the light tone given that my skin is fair. Yes it added a radiant glow and protected the skin from both UV rays and dehydration, but it felt heavy on my skin like it was clogging my pores and I was not as crazy about that. Thankfully, the famous Guerlain rose-aqua flower scent was nice and not overpowering.


So just to recap-

  • Medium in texture

  • Great coverage

  • Provides long lasting SPF 25 and protects the skin from the suns damaging rays

  • 2-in-1 skin care benefit including the infamous Super Aqua-Serum

  • Comes in a perfect travel size tube- 1.3 ounces.

The BB Cream provides a foolproof way to treat your skin with protection, hydration and tinted coverage that works for both for dry and combination skin. However, if you are like me and prefer not having a thick creamy moisturizer for during the day, this might not be the product for you.
