BB Creams for the face are all the rage, but what about BB for the body? I admit the thought crossed my mind. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to try Jergens BB Body Collection as I was chosen by Influenster to receive samples to test and review.
My Experience Using The Products:
I tried all three products sent. They all looked pretty similar on my skin. The main difference was that some offer different strengths of sun protection. To make my Summer Essential’s list a daytime skin lotion really needs to offer broad spectrum sun protection.
JERGENS® BB Body® Perfecting Skin Cream
Jergens BB Body Perfecting Cream is available in two shades (“light” and “medium”). It is a light moisturizer that leaves a subtle sheen and a mild scent. I don’t believe this skin cream offers any SPF so may best be used for an evening out.
Jergens claims it “HYDRATES — ILLUMINATES – EVENS — FIRMS — CORRECTS”. I found that it moisturizes and illuminates and gives a temporary evening effect. I haven’t noticed any firming or correcting.
Ingredients Include (Light Tones):
WATER, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA BUTTER), GLYCERIN, PETROLATUM, DIMETHICONE, ETHYLHEXYL ISONONANOATE, TAPIOCA STARCH, CETEARETH-20, STEARETH-2, STEARIC ACID, CETYL ESTERS, MINERAL OIL, OCTYLDODECYL MYRISTATE, HYDROGENATED POLYDECENE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, DIHYDROXYACETONE, HYDROXYETHYL ACRYLATE/SODIUM ACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE COPOLYMER, ISOHEXADECANE, FRAGRANCE, MANGIFERA INDICA (MANGO) SEED BUTTER, METHYLPARABEN, THEOBROMA CACAO (COCOA) SEED BUTTER, DIMETHICONOL, PROPYLPARABEN, ERYTHRULOSE, PHENOXYETHANOL, POLYSORBATE 60, CITRIC ACID, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE POWDER, ETHYLPARABEN, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, COCOS NUCIFERA (COCONUT) WATER, HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN, PANTHENOL, WITHANIA SOMNIFERA ROOT EXTRACT, CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT, HYDROLYZED ELASTIN, FUCUS VESICULOSUS EXTRACT, YELLOW 5, ORANGE 4, RED 33, BLUE 1.
JERGENS® BB Hand Perfecting Hand Cream
This is a hand cream with SPF 20. I generally do not like very many hand creams, but I do like this one. It also offers a subtle sheen.
Jergens claims it “HYDRATES — SOFTENS — PROTECTS – EVENS & MINIMIZES APPEARANCE OF DARK SPOTS”. I do not really have any dark spots on my hands, I see it as a light lotion with the added benefit of SPF 20. I like the subtle sheen it offers. But I cannot speak to the other claims.
AVOBENZONE 1.25% , OCTISALATE 5%, OCTOCRYLENE 1.1%.
WATER, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERIN, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, STEARIC ACID, ALUMINUM STARCH OCTENYLSUCCINATE, TAPIOCA STARCH, NIACINAMIDE, HYDROGENATED POLYDECENE, PETROLATUM, DIMETHICONE, CETEARETH-20, C12-15 ALKYL BENZOATE, LAURETH-3, GLYCERYL DILAURATE, METHYLPARABEN, BETAINE, DIETHYLHEXYL 2,6-NAPHTHALATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, FRAGRANCE, ARGININE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, PEG-12 DIMETHICONE, CARBOMER, DIMETHICONE/VINYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, SODIUM PCA, DISODIUM EDTA, PEARL POWDER, ANANAS SATIVUS (PINEAPPLE) FRUIT JUICE, CITRUS GRANDIS (GRAPEFRUIT) JUICE, CITRUS MEDICA LIMONUM (LEMON) JUICE, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, LECITHIN, ALCOHOL, ASCORBYL PALMITATE, TOCOPHEROL, YELLOW 5, RED 33.
JERGENS® BB Protect Perfecting Body Cream
This lotion seems similar to the BB Body Perfecting Cream other than it has SPF 15 and maybe a little less tint. Like all the products in this line, It does add a subtle sheen.
Jergens claims it “HYDRATES — PROTECTS – EVENS — VISIBLY REFINES — CORRECTS”. It is basically a light moisturizer that adds a subtle sheen that might visibly even the skin a little (see the image above).
Overall all, I liked all three products. I would prefer that the Skin Perfecting Cream also include sun protection. The lotions are light enough to layer, but I don’t see doing that on an on-going basis. While I like the scent, I would actually prefer it were unscented so I could wear a perfume of my choice or no scent at all.
