La Mav Organic BB Cream Review + Discount


For easy days, when I want something light and quick to apply, that will give me enough coverage to look pulled-together, I love using a BB Cream. They can generally be applied with just the fingertips, even the skin tone and provide some coverage, whilst also hydrating the skin. 

The award-winning range of skincare and cosmetics is Australian made & owned, Australian Certified Organic, Cruelty Free, and is free of harsh chemicals, fillers, talc, sulphates, GM ingredients, parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, artificial colours and fragrances.

I've been using the La Mav Organic BB Creme for a few weeks now, and I must say I love it each time. 

Benefits & Ingredients

The La Mav Organic BB Creme doubles as a foundation and moisturiser, plus offers natural UV protection. It also works well as a primer underneath a powder foundation for extra smooth application and extra coverage. 

Vitamin C and Rosehip Oil help treat inflammation, deliver antioxidants, as well as offer anti-ageing benefits and nourish the skin. The BB Creme also contains Aloe Vera, which is anti-inflammatory, healing and hydrating. 

Ingredients - 

*Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Titanium Dioxide, *Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, *Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, *Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Iron Oxides (CI77492), Tocopherol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Glyceryl Caprylate, Iron Oxides (CI77491), Mica, Iron Oxides (CI77499), Sodium Anisate, *Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, *Rosa Eglentaria (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hippophae Rhamnoides Seed Oil, Alcohol, Ubiquinone, Ascorbic Acid, Aqua, Cucumis Sativus [Cucumber] Fruit Extract, Malpighia Glabra [Acerola] Fruit Extract, Tin Oxide, Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu Plum) Fruit Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract.

Consistency & Application 

The Organic BB Creme is quite a thick cream, but it spreads very quickly and easily with the fingertips, a brush or sponge. I simply dispense 1-2 pumps, dot around the face and spread with my fingers. I've also used a brush to apply, but I find it can soak up the product too much, so I prefer my fingertips. It also makes it super quick for lazy days!


Coverage & Shade

The La Mav Organic BB Creme is available in one shade only (a medium tone), so keep that in mind. The limitation of one shade is the only negative I have with this BB Creme. My skin tone is light - medium, with neutral undertones. The La Mav Organic BB Creme does work for my skin tone, as it does adjust slightly to your own skin tone once set, but not enough for fairer skin (I tried this on my sister, who is much fairer than I am, and she can't wear it). 

I really love the coverage this provides - it is medium coverage, and could be built up with additional layers. The finish is satin, neither dewy nor matte, and it feels so weightless on the skin once set. If I'm after more coverage, or a more polished look, I use the La Mav Organic BB Creme as a base underneath the Anti-Ageing Mineral Foundation (with SPF15) (which I'll be reviewing soon!). 

The BB Creme stays put all day, doesn't separate or fade, and isn't oily or greasy. Paired with a little cheek + lip tint and I'm set. 

Packaging

The BB Creme is packaged in a sleek pump dispenser, with a protective cap. It fits nicely into my make-up bag, and it would be so convenient to toss into a beach or gym bag for application on the go. 

Overall & Discount

I really love the La Mav Organic BB Creme, for its multi-purpose applications, and how easy it is to use and wear. If I could change one thing, it would be to have additional shades in the line. Other than that, it is absolutely perfect. I also love that it doubles as skincare, and has proven anti-ageing benefits.
