 After hearing so many good things about this Beauty Balm on numerous blogs, youtube videos etc.  I decided to treat myself.
It was Vivianna over at Viviannadoesmakeup who sucked me into buying this bad boy and i'm so glad she did!  She made it sound like the perfect product and also informed her readers on the special offer at Boots, £12 from £18 which is a great saving.   I was gonna buy it online but I hate paying postage prices so I headed down to my local Boots store and was hoping they would stock the Dr Jart products and I was buzzing with excitement when I stumbled across them, a very small selection on a small shelf.  I grabbed the last one but the price said £18 but I thought to myself oh well, i'll just treat myself and have a little splurge but when I got to the till it said £12 so made me even more happy :)

 You get 50ml of product which is quite alot as you only need a tiny amount for your whole face, this will last a good while so you really do get your moneys worth whether you pay £12 or £18.
The packaging is really nice, a metallic turquoise colour tube which is pretty and comes in a box.
Now as for the shade, I did check the reviews on the Boots website before buying it and a few of the reviews mentioned how they were very fair skinned and it wasn't too dark for them?  Im quite confused by this because as a sunbed worshipper I do have a pretty nice tan and this shade is perfect and would also look good on olive skin tones but I can't see how this can work for fair skin girls?  Maybe it adapts to your skin tone I don't know but all I can say is, if you are a fair skinned gal and want to buy this product, I strongly suggest you try it out first.

It also contains SPF25 which is perfect for summer and also great for the warmer weather when you don't want to be wearing horrible thick foundations that melt in the heat.

Application:  i've used my fingers (clean ofcourse!) and it blends in nicely, it does have a slight grey cast to it, but once it's blended in and set after a couple of minutes, you can't tell you're wearing anything as it's so natural looking but makes your skin look even and smooth.  I also use this with my Real Techniques expert face brush which gives it a more 'airbrushed' finish.  I have also tried this underneath my foundation and helps the foundation look more 'fresh' and last abit longer throughout the day.

I would totally buy this product again once I have used it all up, it's worth every penny and I can see this tube lasting quite a long time.  This will be perfect for when I go to Vegas in June in the hot sunshine at the pool parties... it has my SPF25 for the day and also gives me some coverage.
