Beauty Balm Creams are all the rage these days. Most commonly known as BB Creams, they are a hybrid of moisturizer, sunscreen, primer and foundation all rolled into one product. They are perfect for those who currently use all those products separately and want to streamline their beauty routine or for those trying to use all those individual products. It’s really important to keep your skin hydrated and protected, so the more products with SPF you can use the better in my opinion. When DeVita Natural Skin Care sent me one of their Moisture Tints BB Creams to try, I couldn’t have been more excited! I’ve been on the hunt for a good cruelty free and vegan beauty balm for some time!

Pros: Paraben free. Cruelty free and vegan. Natural formula. Build-able coverage for those who want light, medium or full coverage. Great blendable formula.
The Verdict: This was hands down the best BB cream I have used! I received the DeVita Natural Skin Care Moisture Tints BB Cream in Medium and it was the perfect shade for me. It was really smooth to apply, blended well, and gave great coverage through the day. I tried it both with and without my usual primer and the wear was great both ways. The formula is really creamy and not at all sticky or tacky like some BB creams I have used in the past. I applied the Moisture Tints Beauty Balm with my usual flat top brush like I do with foundation and the coverage was flawless. If you haven’t yet found a good vegan Beauty Balm (or even if you have!) give this one from DeVita a try. I think you will love it!
