Bourjois BB Bronzing 8 in 1 Cream


I'd never succumb to the hype surrounding the famous Bourjois "Chocolate Bronzer", so when I spotted their BB cream version (with £2 off!) my interest was piqued.

This stuff promises to even skin tone, give a sheer tint, boost radiance, provide 16-hour moisturisation, smooth skin, prolong tan, contain SPF 15 and have a refreshing sensation.  So how did it match up?

I've been using a few pumps of this mixed in with my foundation to boost my bronzeness in time for summer.  It's a nice product when used like this, but as a BB Cream I'm not so sure.  Feeling daring, I decided to up the amount of this I was using and only apply a tiny amount of foundation.  It really didn't work.  My skin looked patchy and weird.  It was just orange and odd, and I was actually really embarrassed to be out in public with my face like that.  I'm not sure how noticeable it was to everyone else, but to me it was so obvious.  And sod's law that I only realised in the car on the way out when it was too late to fix!

So would I repurchase?  That'll be a no.  I'm not a fan of the patchy look, and for now my Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel is giving me all the bronze-ness I could want!


  1. would be interesting to try this out mixed with foundation but it would definitely be patchy on me if I used it on its own!! Will buy this if i see it on offer I think, L xx

  2. I didn't know you had the Chanel bronzer, is it good? I've been toying with the idea of trying it out!
