Product Description & Packaging:
As you can see in the pictures, I have two types of bottles for this BB Cream. The bigger one is the actual packaging but the smaller one is the tester. The company rep sent me to test the shade.

Artdeco Anti Aging BB Cream comes in a squeezable plastic bottle containing 30ml of products. It comes in two shade only. The packaging is quite sturdy and the formula is creamy to liquid.

Swatches plus Before & After:
You know how much courage it requires to put up before and after photos when you don't have that perfect skin anymore? Oh well, here I am. From now onwards, you will get to see my without makeup face a lot more than before.

I have applied the cream with my fingers and have used only one sheer layer without any base/primer/moisturizer underneath. The lipstick I am wearing is CSP's Pure Matt Lipstick in Gossip.

Artdeco Anti Aging BB Cream - before & after

Overall Experience:
Three words; I Love It!

Anti Aging BB Cream by Artdeco is definitely suitable for people aged 35 and above (general age recommendation for anti aging products). In this review I won't only include my experience but my mother-in-law's too. When I got this product, she was luckily here at my place and I asked her to used it. Shade 2 matched her skin tone and shade 7 was perfect for mine.

Her Experience - in my words: (Age : 50+, Skin type: Oily) This BB Cream is very light on skin, gives nice coverage and is really easily blend-able. It stays for long hours and does not need to be powdered. Also, it does not get into lines and wrinkles. It clings onto the dry patches easily so exfoliation is must. I now prefer using this BB Cream instead of my foundation in everyday routine.

My experience: Even though I loved this BB Cream and I desperately want to get it in full size, I still won't use it until I need anti aging products but if you believe that you can delay aging signs even more if you start to use anti aging products earlier, be my guest and get one for yourself.

I found this BB Cream really easy to work with both with a buffing brush and with my fingers. Generally, when I am in hurry, I use Ronasutra's Retractable Kabuki Brush to blend it in less than a minute. That brush is just magic as it is the softest kabuki brush I have ever used and it gives a flawless finish.

This cream literally does not get into fine lines and covers up most of my redness and discoloration in a sheer layer but at that point, I can still see redness on my cheeks peeking though it a bit. So I quickly dab my brush (without using anymore product) on those areas and it helps to cover up even better.

For the staying time I would say that it lasts on me for good 4-5 hours without setting it with powder as I am into dewy finish these days. This staying time is pretty great for me as I have oily skin. Oh and one more thing about the finish; whenever I use a new BB Cream/foundation, I apply it and ask my husband to tell me how it looks like. He literally points out if there is even one single dry patch or cakey-ness but for this he said; your skin looks smooth and have you even applied anything on your face? =D

This is the most light BB Cream I have ever used and it looks exactly like skin. However, if you have dry patches, it might cling onto them so better exfoliate in everyday routine. Also since this cream is oil free, it is suitable for all skin types but with that it might feel a bit dry on dry skin so moisturize if need to.

Only negative thing that I notices about it that it has a bitter taste, No I don't eat it but I tend to take my base onto my lips a bit and you know how some people have this habit of licking their lips and that what happens to me too. And it has a smell like those medicated soaps and face washes have. I don't mind that because most of my life I was using medicated product because of my sensitivity to fragrances. Also, this product should have a wider shade range.

Overall, I love this BB Cream and I know I have a anti aging BB Cream waiting for me.
