This moisturiser is so amazing! The cream is very light weight and contains a clearderm complex which fights breakouts and blackheads and protects the skin against imperfections. It absorbs into the skin really well and also has a natural tint, which matches the pigment in your skin, leaving you with a matte finish and flawless complection.

Pure Skin Anti-spot BB Cream

This tinted moisturiser from Essence is now known as the Pure Skin Anti-spot BB Cream.
By far the most affordable yet effective BB Cream on the market! I think it goes for about R59.
It contains an SPF 10 which is a bit of protection and better then nothing but I wouldn't recommend being in the sun for extended time with just this as protection.

It is a BB cream so it isn't full coverage but it is enough to even skin tone and cover lighter marks. I would use it under normal foundation during bad breakouts. I use the Essence Pure Skin Anti-Spot Cover Cream concealer on spots and darker marks underneath the BB cream for extra cover.
Active ingredients like SALICYLIC ACID & ZINC PCA help fight spots and speed up healing. I did notice that spots seem to heal and disappear faster when wearing this daily. Its hard to say whether it helped prevent them at all though.

CONS:
It is limited to one "universal" shade, natural beige which definitely isn't for a lot of skin shades and certainly isn't "universal". I am just lucky that it happens to match my skin.

It states that it has a mattifying effect but I find it has a slight shine and cant wear it without applying powder on top.

P.S
Just a tip if you look for this (or any of the Pure Skin range) in a Clicks or Dischem store, you wont find it by the Essence makeup stand (which is of corse where I went straight to), its by the face creams and washes and specialised products (I wandered around more then one store not knowing this haha)

essence pure skin natural cover moisturizer

Another great everyday makeup product! Well done Essence on such an amazing range.
One of those "get ready in 5 minutes" , or "I don't want to wear makeup today" beauty products.
LOVE IT!!!! Repurchased it 3 times over and will definitely do so in the future.

Essence Moisturizer

I needed a nighttime cream and oddly enough I did not realize this was tinted! I then used it in the day and if you only need a light coverage foundation then this could actually work really well. It costs R18 which is absolutely ridiculously cheap. It does not cover up bad skin completely but if used with a concealer you could definitely use this as a foundation.

Essence pure skin natural cover moisturizer

This is a good low budget buy for those with slight complexion issues. Has anti-bacterial properties to keep zits under control whilst lightly concealing imperfections to give you a more even tone. Great for those days when you don't want to wear heavy make-up but want to keep skin looking smooth.
