REN Satin Perfection BB Cream SPF 15

I got this sample from Sephora. So I thought I'd give my personal opinion about it. :)

I LOVE bb creams so I'm happy to do this review!

Settle on my hand

This is one of the best, non-Korean, blemish balms I've ever tried. I usually prefer Korean bb creams because of the skin benefits, and great coverage compare to their western counterparts but REN's bb cream is one of those I highly recommend. The smell reminds me of fresh flowers, and oranges - really good! The scent of this product isn't strong, and artificial - like some bb creams I've tried in the past. The coverage is very light. It didn't hide the redness and  psoriasis on my face, but that's OK. I wasn't that disappointed. It did a good job hiding my pores, and the tiny pimples I had. Kinda got too oily on my nose (I have combination skin btw) REN's bb cream is very blendable, and it didn't feel heavy on my face and neck. If you're looking for full coverage, you're better off trying something else. I recommend REN's bb cream for dry, and normal skin.
