Physician's Formula Super BB Beauty Balm Powder: Review + Swatches

Physician's Formula has great face powders, so I was excited to try their new Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder.  This product is part of their new Super BB line that also features a cream and concealer.


I don't get excited about face powders easily-- in my eyes they are one of the more "blah" products of the makeup world.  However, I am really impressed by this one.  It has a medium to full coverage and somehow makes my skin look fantastic.  The company claims this product "provides a smoothing effect that instantly diffuses imperfections, evens out skintone and minimizes the appearance of pores."  I experience all of these when using this powder.  It isn't very often that a product actually lives up to all of its claims!


This powder comes in two shades: Light/Medium and Medium/Dark.  I have the Light/Medium and find it is a good match for my complexion, though I do think only two color options is quite limited... surely they won't match everyone!

The powder has a slight sheen to its finish, which is hardly visible but must contribute to why it makes my skin look so great.  I've been lightly applying this on top of my Dr.Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm and the combination has perfect medium coverage.


This powder comes in white compact casing, and has a bottom compartment that includes a mirror and small brush.  I don't really ever use these sorts of things in compacts, but for people who use them on the go they can be handy.


Bonus: this product contains SPF 30!  Another reason I'm loving it for summer.  I find that this powder wears all day on my skin with no problems.  If you are looking to try a new face powder that has some coverage, I highly recommend this one! (My only complaint is that it is called a BB Powder... can we stop with the false BB naming already?!)


The Physician's Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder retails for $13.95 (8.3g) and can be found in most drugstores, as well as Drugstore.com!

What is your favorite drugstore face powder?
