  What It Claims


Whitening
Wrinkle Improvement
UV Interception
SPF25 PA++


Container

The packaging is very pretty. The container looks pretty big, but it only contains 40g product.

It comes with a cute lip & cheek color and a mirror which is inside of the cap. It's easy to use which is super convenient for me since I travel a lot and usually don't have much time to get ready before work.

The pump prevents wastage of the product, and one pump is enough to cover your face completely.
 

Color 

This BB Cream is very light and has a golden/yellow tone to is. It blends really well and matches perfectly with my yellow undertone and doesn't make my face look darker.

The lip and cheek color is in a nice rosy pink color, but turns out in a very soft pink once applied and blended. The color is really pretty and vibrant, but it still looks very natural.

  

Coverage 

Medium but buildable coverage. Evens out my skintone and covers redness perfectly and smoothes out pores. My dark circles and some red spots are still slightly visible after 1 layer, but after a second layer and some powder they're almost invisible.

  
My skin has been looking awful lately, but you can clearly see the huge difference after just one layer!

  

Fragrance 

The fragrance is pretty strong, but not too overwhelming. I'm not too found of Makeup with a strong scent, but it's not that bad.

Consistency 

The consistency is very thick, but it applies smoothly and doesn't feel heavy once applied on the face.

The lip and cheek color is vert smooth and creamy, pretty much like a lip balm.

Oil-Control 

This product is supposed to have good oil-control, but I'm actually very disappointed with it. It does look very nice for a couple of hours, but it started to wear off in areas that usually turn out to be oily, like on my nose and around my nose. I guess it might work for some people, but definitely not for me.

Finish 

This BB Cream has a very dewy finish which I don't like at all. I already have oily skin, so I think dewy finishes just makes my face look really greasy and not attractive at all. It looks great after setting it with powder though, and since I always apply powder anyways I can't really complain. I just wouldn't want to use this BB Cream alone, without setting it with powder.

Overall 

The main reason why I like this BB Cream is because it matches so well with my skintone, has good coverage which makes my skin look really nice for the first couple of hours of wearing it. I also really like the lip color and mirror in the cap; It's really cute and useful. The only downside is probably that it wears off in patches after a while, and some might have a hard time with the strong scent. Despite this I must say that this is one of the best BB creams I have tried!

  1. I love that there is a little lip and cheek colour built in! It looks so lovely on your skin, too bad it doesn't last too long! I am so pale that the only BB cream I've been able to use is Holika Holika's Aqua Petit Jelly and even that one is almost too dark.
