Touting an oil-free formula that primes, evens out and protects skin with SPF20 and measurable anti-aging benefits, the Naked Skin Beauty Balm diffuses light with high-tech pigments to optically blur out pores, lines, wrinkles and redness. It is also packed with Pepha®-Protect to help inhibit DNA damage along with Vitasource™ and dGlyage® to firm skin and improve elasticity.
Like your typical BB Cream, there is only one shade to fit all skintones. The color looked a little orange but blended seamlessly into my NC30 skin. Those who are fair might find it too dark though.
The first thing I noticed was the strong chemical scent. I wasn’t too fond of it but it went away really quickly so no biggie. The texture was slightly runny, very lightweight and buildable. It moisturized my skin nicely and left it looking smooth and dewy without a single trace of makeup.
The only thing I could ask for is a bit more coverage. Even after several layers, you could still see my undereye circles, freckles and redness around the nose show through. Other than that, this wore well and did not cake or fade through out the day.
Overall, I would recommend this only as a primer or for those who have great skin to begin with.
