BB Cream for Guys?


There have been whispers about men's makeup for years now. Guyliner and touche eclat for men are a little extreme for your average boy I think, but what about tinted moisturiser? Lab Series have released their first BB Cream Tinted Moisturiser for men, which has apparently been flying off the shelves! As it's a BB cream, it also has skincare benefits along with SPF 30.
I was interested to find out what guys think about this new almost-makeup-wearing trend so I showed the Lab series to three men in my life and here's what happened...

I had four set questions for the boys:

1. Would you wear tinted moisturiser?
2. What do you think of this product, will you try it?
3. Can you notice a difference in the way you look after application?
4. Would you wear it on a regular basis, and/or buy it for yourself?

Boy No.1

1. Would you wear tinted moisturiser?
I guess so... I have done before by  accident I think. Wait, you mean like fake tanning stuff? (No, like foundation but much lighter) Oh! NO way!
2. What do you think of the product, will you try it?
I'm not sure, I don't even use moisturiser anyway. (Reluctantly tries it)
3. Can you notice a difference in the way you look?
Yeah my skin looks shiny, I don't like it.
4. Would you buy it for yourself and wear it on a regular basis?
No way!

Boy No.2

1. Would you wear tinted moisturiser?
Dunno, what is it? (I explain) Maybe...
2. What do you think of the product, will you try it?
I'm not sure, I don't even use moisturiser anyway. (Reluctantly tries it)
3. Can you notice a difference in the way you look?
Yeah I think it makes me look more healthy and you can't see that I have it on.
4. Would you buy it for yourself and wear it on a regular basis?
I wouldn't buy it but if someone gave me some I'd wear it if I was feeling a particularly vain that day, but not really. It's too much hassle for every day.

Boy No.3

1. Would you wear tinted moisturiser?
I'm not sure, but I guess so if no one could tell I was wearing it.
2. What do you think of the product, will you try it?
I like the packaging but the product looks a bit scary. I'll try it and see...
3. Can you notice a difference in the way you look? Definitely.
It's evened out my skin and made it look much smoother. I like it and you can't tell you're wearing it. It doesn't look like makeup.
4. Would you buy it for yourself and wear it on a regular basis?
I think so. How much is it? (£32) That's pretty expensive. I'd wear it if someone bought it for me but I'm not sure I'd buy it myself.

So there you have it girls... I guess it all depends on the guy. I think it looks really natural on the skin (I really wasn't convinced at first but it's almost invisible on the skin and just makes the boys look glowing with health!) If you know a guy who wants to use this kind of product then I think this would be a good choice as it's honestly undetectable.

I'm still not sure how I'd feel if my boyfriend bought it for himself though... what do you think girls? Is this something that the men in your life would like?

The Lab Series BB Cream for Men is priced at £32 and available now.
