This was my first try of the Origins A Perfect World BB, and apart from the fact that I was a little confused as to whether it was a tinted moisturiser or a BB cream (as it claims to be both), I actually really really liked it. Keep reading for a ‘half and half’ photo.

It goes beautifully on to clean skin, so no need to prep and prime, and it gives a lovely light yet skin perfecting coverage. It is fabulous on enlarged pores and fine lines but I’d imagine you may need a little concealer for spots, as it is more on the sheer side. Here it is on just the left side of the photo – much more even and smooth with just the lightest of applications.

It leaves a gorgeous dewy finish on the skin and is really long lasting considering how light it feels. It has an anti-ageing element too as it is packed with anti-oxidant  Silver Tip White Tea and is perfectly hydrating. 
A definite thumbs up for me. The only thing that puts me off is the low SPF. It only has 15 and I really do prefer at least a SPF30. Of course you can use a sunscreen under it, but I find this works better on clean skin. I shall be saving this for no sun days!
And now on to the rest of the makeup.

    Gosh the coverage is impressive for a BB cream, though like you I prefer a higher spf x
