Review: The best BB cream EVER!

I am so excited right now to reviewing this product it's crazy!
I bought this BB cream a little over a month ago with the idea of wearing it on holidays in mind. I actually hardly wore it in the end but have been using it everyday at home in place of my foundation(Makeup Forever's HD foundation or Revlon Color Stay foundation).

I was very apprehensive about trying the BB cream for a few reasons.
1. I haven't been able to find a BB cream pale enough for me (although as you will see in the photos it is a little pale for me since returning home from Teneriefe with a bit of a 'glow')
2. 17 isn't known for being the best as it it is quite... affordable
3. I hadn't been reeled into the BB cream craze.

I was very pleasantly surprised  
The staying power of this BB cream is amazing, it lasts all day without any touch-ups. When I wear it to work it wears off a little after hours of running about but I still don't feel the need to add any more.
The coverage is excellent. I like a medium to high coverage; although I have pretty good skin- spot wise I have quite high pigmentation where I get quite red and patchy so having a good coverage is something I value, this BB cream doesn't let me down in this area.
A huge bonus to this BB cream is that it contains an SPF of 25 which is the reason I wanted it for holidays to wear during the day(but like I said I didn't use it, simply because I went bare face every day). But as you all know we should be waring SPF everyday rain or shine(something I'm guilty of not doing!) so even for at home I feel I'm being kind to my skin.
The BB cream says it actually enhances your skin and reduces blemishes which is always welcome in my books.
Being a 17 product you know it's nice on your wallet so you won't be forking out a fortune, I can't remember how much it was but I do remember not minding handing over the money either. 
Overall I would highly recommend trying out the 17 BB cream when you get a chance, I promise you won't be disappointed.
