Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream Review

A BB cream is a multi-functioning Beauty Balm that typically helps even out skin tone, hydrate, correct, and conceal or cover, but varies by brand.  Jergens brought the BB to the body, and having some body issues myself, I couldn't wait to try it out.  It's the kind of issues that I made my peace with long ago, but any chance that I can try to lessen the appearance of the dread inheritance of spider and varicose veins, lumpy bumpy cellulite, and the not so toned rear end issues, I am on it.  Yes, I just got very real. Thanks womanhood!

The Jergens BB Body comes in two sheer, self adjusting shades.  One for light skin tones(which I purchased), and one for dark skin tones.  Here are the claims:

  • 5 Visible results in 5 days
  • Hydrates and smoothes
  • Illuminates and Brightens
  • Evens skin tone
  • Firms 
  • Corrects- minimizes the appearance of imperfections

I have to say, that is one TALL order for a moisturizer.  So, I am sure the question on your minds is, does it work?

I used this daily, or every other day, right out of the shower for about a month now.  I really wanted to love this, like I love their self tanning Natural Glow moisturizer. Sadly, for me, it just didn't live up to the many claims it makes.  I was hoping BB Body would leave me with a Better Booty or something at least dramatically noticeable.  A girl can dream.

It does do a good job of hydrating the skin.  It's a thick cream in a pretty gold tube,  that looks and smells very much like the Jergens Natural Glow.  As far as firming, I really didn't see much of a difference except slightly in the inner, upper thigh area.  As far as correcting, not really much happening there.  Which brings us to evening out the skin tone.  It's easy to tell when the tone of your face is evened out because it's a smaller area, but with the body, thats a lot of skin.  Did I feel like my tone was evened out? Honestly, no it looked the same to me.  It did however seem to have a nice sheen to it, so illuminating, I'll give it that.       

Overall,  Jergens BB Body just didn't do it for me.  It moisturized well, very slightly firmed one area, and gave a subtle sheen to the skin.  Other than that, not too much more resulted. Sorry Jergens!  Not feeling the BB Body.

For less money, more evening out of the skin tone, imperfection hiding, a golden bonze and firming, just buy the Jergens Natural Glow + Firming.  It full-fills more of the BB Body's claims, than the actual Jergens BB Body does.
