Review: Deborah Milano 5 in 1 BB Cream in 00 Fair Rose

BB cream is something that I have very little experience with. I've always used quite a light coverage, dewy foundation but I really wanted to try a BB cream because of the added promise of skincare benefits. It really sounded like the perfect thing for "good" skin days, particularly in warmer weather. Deborah Milano is the leading cosmetics provider in Italy so I really felt like I was in good hands when they offered to let me try out their BB cream!


Shown here is also a gorgeous mascara which I recently reviewed here. For me this is the bare minimum for makeup, I could quite happily go out with just mascara and a light foundation!


Like 24 Ore mascara, Deborah Milano BB cream comes in sleek, shiny black packaging. Like most BB creams, this one is simply squeezed out of the tube and has a small opening which helps prevent product wastage. The cap fits tightly and securely and I'd feel comfortable chucking it in a bag and travelling with it. This product comes in 6 shades which would fit a wide range of skin tones. I think BB creams are possibly the worst offenders when it comes to tiny shade ranges so it's refreshing to see a brand cater to so many people. I received shade 00 Fair Rose which is the lightest in the range and honestly, absolutely PERFECT! I was thrilled with the colour match. It's possibly even a very very tiny bit better than my current foundation so it's quickly become my go-to base for every day.

  Before-After

You can see from the swatches above that it evens the skin out beautifully. My main issues with my skin are it's dryness and uneven tone so this is an ideal match for me. It really eliminates redness and I also feel it gives a brightening effect, you can see that the area under my eye is much lighter and less "tired-looking." The formula is really light and smooth and I completely agree that it's moisturising. It doesn't cake or cling to dry patches and blends perfectly into the skin. It's also hypo-allergenic and contains SPF 20 so it's ideal for those with sensitive skin and allergies. I'm totally in love with this! The only possible negative is that initially it has a strong sweet scent that reminds me of parma violets but this does fade quickly when you're wearing it. Personally the scent doesn't bother me and could in no way outweigh the enormous positive aspects of this product.

Deborah Milano BB Cream* £9.95

Final Verdict: A fantastic and affordable product which I personally adore!

What do you think to this product? Do you have a favourite BB cream?

  7. Wow, that looks really good :). I haven't tried enough BB creams to have a favourite, only the MUA one which I thought I liked and now I'm not a fan any more. I might pick this up when that has run out :)

  12. You've got lovely skin - so this looks great on you.

    Smelling like parma violets would be a plus point for me!

  13. I often find that when finding a liquid foundation I can barely ever 'get it right' but I think I may have just found the product I've been looking for!
