After reading numerous reviews and watching plenty of youtube videos, i finally decided on four BB creams that i wanted to try out. Originally i was really into the BB Cream thing when i heard about the whitening effects. I mean, i have a lot of acne scars that are taking way too long to disappear. I mean there is nothing good about foundation besides to enhance beauty and cover up your flaws, but the whitening effects in BB cream can help you slowly diminished the hyper pigmentation in your face and eventually lighten up your scars and enhance your skin with its nutrients. Don't forget it also has UV protection and anti-wrinkle properties. What kind of girl wouldn't like that?
Let's just say, after i have tried BB Cream, i will never go back to foundation again.
|L'egere, Lioele, Missha, and Skin79|
I've been using these for a while now and decided to give you a review for each one. But first off, i want to say i usually apply my foundation with a sponge, but with BB cream, i think the best way to apply it is to just use your fingers and apply it as you would a moisturizer. It evens out very nicely that way and you can get in between the contours of your face better.
L'EGERE- WHITE MULTI BB CREAM
I see a lot of people rave about this particular BB cream, but it's sad to say that it really doesn't do much for me. i never had to blot my face daily before, but when i have this BB cream on, later in the day, my face gets so oily and i turn into an oil bomb and i just have to blot my face. I don't really like the coverage on this either, to me it's light to medium coverage, but of course it's build-able. The texture is a little thick, but is still easy to apply. Only one color to this BB cream, and when you first squeeze it out, it looks a very dark color, but don't worry, once you apply it, it changes to your skin color, and after it oxidizes, it actually looks very natural.
-Sun protection (but doesn't state how much SPF it has)
- up to 24 hours of coverage
- Whitening properties
- Makes me oily :(
- Comes in a squeeze bottle (i personally just like pumps)
- One shade only
LIOELE- TRIPLE THE SOLUTION BB CREAM
This was the first BB cream i ever tried and it is my favorite so far, my heart always have a soft spot for it no matter how many different kinds i'll try. Also, the packaging is so lovely!
The texture of this BB cream is pretty thick, but you only need a little to cover your whole face. Just half a pump will do for me. It apply very smoothly but it's a little on the pale side for me, although after it oxidizes, it does look very natural. My face looks more radiant and healthy when i have it on. The coverage is medium to full, so i love it! It also has a matte finnish, however it does give you a dewy effect after hours of wearing it, but nothing like an oily face. It's very moisturizing and have SPF in it. It will give you a white cast in photos though.
- good coverage
- anti wrinkle
- a little pale
- makes you look very white in flash photography
-One shade only
MISSHA- PERFECT COVER BB CREAM
Before i started using BB cream, when i see the name "Missha", i will automatically think of BB cream.
The good thing about Missha is that they come in several shades. I got mine in a shade No. 23 because people say that is natural beige, and when i buy foundation, i usually buy them in natural beige. The texture is very smooth, it's not thick but not very runny either. The coverage is from medium to full coverage which is very good, i only use a little over half a pump for my whole face. A little goes a long way. It has a bit of a grey cast but nothing too severe. After it oxidizes, it looks very natural. I like this one a lot too but i think i also want to try shade NO. 21
- SPF 42 PA+++
- Anti wrinkle
- Whitening properties
-Comes in more than one shade
SKIN79- SUPER BEBLESH BALM TRIPLE FUNCTIONS
Look at how cute the packaging is! I like this one a lot too. It's very smooth but like most BB cream, it only comes in one shade. But i'm happy with this shade, it matches my skin tone quite nicely actually. The texture is very smooth making it very easy to spread on your face and the coverage is also medium to full. One pump gives a lot so half a pump is enough to cover my entire face. This also have a slight grey cast but nothing too outrageous. It gives off a dewy finish and your face will have a healthy glow. If you are an oily person, you may need to blot during the day but i found no problem with that so far.
- SPF 25 PA++
- Whitening properties
- Anti wrinkles
- Only one shade
- Slight grey cast
