Having sensitive skin, I don’t like wearing heavy foundation and always opted to use BB creams. A lot of the BB creams I have tried though are really just tinted moisturisers. And then, I decided to try Seventeen BB Magic Blemish Balm from Boots – and I knew I found the one.

‘Oh dear, I guess I need to buy more BB Cream. Hopefully I can get enough out of this tube for today.
Just need to stop by Boots to get something.
Where is it? Is it only available in the bigger stores? Hmmm. I guess they don’t sell it in the smaller shops.
Better check online which store has it in stock before going tomorrow. Wow! It’s on offer for only around £2! Definitely need to get them tomorrow.
Totally forgot to check if they stock it in this store but it’s a big store and I got it here before so they should sell it.
Umm, excuse me. Where are the Seventeen make-up products at?
It’s being phased out?!?
Noooo! Why oh why?!?’
Okay that may be a little over dramatic but still, why does this always happen? Everytime I find a good make-up product that agrees with my sensitive skin, they decide to stop making them.
Just to give a little bit of background, I have sensitive skin and controlling breakouts have been quite a challenge. So, when I found this Seventeen BB cream that claims to improve skin and prevent breakouts, I had to try it.
And boy, was I glad that I did because it works really well for me. After the first use, I immediately noticed an improvement on my skin and one year after, I haven’t had any major breakouts. I would not say that it gives me perfectly flawless skin but not having many angry spots is definitely fantastic.
So you can imagine why not being able to purchase it again is upsetting for me. Once it’s gone, I will be back to square one, looking for that all in one product that will help keep the major breakouts away.
Right now, while I can still buy it online, my plan is to stock up. And if you know of any good BB creams that have the same benefits, as effective and affordable, please let me know.
