Beauty Balms also known as BB Creams are a strong trend right now in the beauty world. They've been popular in asia for a while now and tons of big name brands are jumping on board and coming out with their own versions. I have tried a few different brands with less than desierable results. Some have left me looking ashy and grey while others left me looking like an oil slick with little to no coverage.

Enter, Dr. Jart+ Beauty Balm Water Fuse which has made it to holy grail status after just a week of using.
WHY? This stuff is the ulitmate multi-tasking product combining hydration, light foundation coverage, concealor and spf 25. The coverage is buildable and extremely natural looking. The markup artist at the product launch told me that it can be used for all skintones. For darker skintones it will work best as a base. It will work well for normal, combo and oily skintypes. For dry skintypes I'd suggest using a moisturizer or serum first before applying BB Cream.
Sometimes my skin reacts to new products by screwing up my life with a big fat breakout. With the BB goodness I had no such breakout and my skin looks GORGE. I tend to have some oil breakthrough by the end of the day with regular foundation and I had ZERO with this stuff. Overall, I am really super excited about this product which is why it has quickly rose to holy grail stat in the lesleykat book.
Kittens, what are some of your holy grail products?
