GOSH BB Cream: Sand 01 & Beige 02 Review & Swatches


While it may not have been the first to launch a BB Cream, GOSH has certainly been one of the most innovative… particularly when it comes to colour, offering five shades ranging from very pale to very dark, with a colour adaptive formula.  It also contains anti-ageing Phytosan, SPF 15 and is water resistant, making it holiday/rain friendly, depending on your location/luck!

The packaging is simple and chic, in matt black slimline tubes with a helpful colour window.  Designed to work without moisturiser or primer, I personally find that a primer, the formula is creamy enough that I can skip moisturiser if I choose. My skin is quite dry, so if yours is normal or oily, it would definitely be worth giving this a go minus moisturiser. SPF 15 is lower than I prefer for my face (min SPF 30), but I’m still pleased that it’s in there.

Beige is very pale on me, but I could probably get away with it in Winter, warmed up with blusher. Sand is perfect for now - yay!  You can see all five shades on Laura’s blog here.

The texture is a bit like a gel cream; it doesn’t have the chalkiness of some BBs and feels genuinely moisturising.

Actually in this pic the Sand looks like an ever better match! I do think it’s a bit pale on my face for Summer though, despite the fact that I generally lean towards paler shades. Check my freckles i the top pic to get an idea of coverage… I’d describe it as more than a tinted moisturiser; closer to a light coverage foundation - and a fraction less coverage than I’m completely comfortable with. Saying that, I’ve been reaching for it a lot the past couple of weeks - it’s so quick and easy to use and once concealer is added, I’m happy to be seen in public! ;)
