Beauty Balms are an 'all in one' type of product, which is usually a claim that turns me away. But after reading about the different products online and watching several reviews on Youtube.com, I decided it was worth a shot. They, at least the Dr. Jart versions, are designed to treat skin, moisturize and smooth, prime and perfect, camouflage and color correct skin tone, and protect with SPF.
When I went into Sephora I knew I wanted a BB Cream, but I was not sure what kind. I told one of the girls in Sephora that I needed one that would protect my skin, give me a light coverage, and that would not budge while I played sports. (My lacrosse season is starting soon and I cannot wait!)
The sales assistant suggested the Dr. Jart+ Premium version because it has a high SPF and helps to fight breakouts.
After having worn this BB Cream for several weeks and having worked out with it on several times I have to say it was worth the purchase. At $40 it is one of the more expensive BB Creams on the market, although well worth it. I have found that the cream blends perfectly to my skin tone. I have extremely fair skin with many freckles, and am quite proud of it! I like this BB Cream because it gives me a 'glowy' finish while allowing my freckles to show and still priming my face for concealer, blush, etc. The 'glow' is also just the perfect amount and does not make my face look greasy or oily.
BB Creams are only meant for light coverage and you will still need to use concealer, blush, bronzer, etc for whatever look you desire. Additionally, you can apply a regular foundation on top of this since it also primes!
I was so pleased that, as promised, my make up did not smudge or run during a work out, always a bonus!
