Described as: a high-definition BB Cream that gives off excellent coverage. It is a sheer make-up base, moisturizer, & sun block in one that covers discolorations, pores, and other imperfections under unforgiving camera lenses, while still maintaining one’s natural skin tone, through its bright and natural beige hues. Suitable for all skin types, this BB Cream also moisturizes and soothes the skin with Portulaca and Aloe Vera extracts.
Hello folks! It's been a few days into this new month and here i am with a new bb cream review.
Honestly, considering the prices of the face shop here? i must confess that is only because of the freebie kim hyun joong posters, calendars that i've actually gone back to the face shop. why the disclaimer? read on to the end.
so here it is, in gold packaging. i thought i'd be getting shimmers in this since it says hd which is like something to the effect of revlon's photoready, so you'd think you'd be ready in hd vids and super high megapixel cams.
naaah, no shimmers, no dewy finish, it's a flat matte finish! yes, it's for oily skin, according to Grace, my favorite store manager at the megamall branch.
velvety smooth finish.
did diddly squat for my pores, like you know hiding them abit? but it did give some coverage to my graying pimple scar on the upper left hand side of my my pic above.
spf 30 pa of ++ yey, i can take pix in the sun without getting paranoid!
because i have combination oily skin, i like the matte finish on my bb creams or foundations and i prefer my glow to come fr the shimmers of my blush.
this lasts me a while. i'm always in an airconditioned environment and i do not need to blot my nose or forehead until about 3 or 4 hours have passed with this bb cream on. this bb cream under my foundation, i don't need to touch up with face powder, just to blot off the excess oil or shine from my nose. i think this is a great makeup base. and it didn't give me zits!
- matte finish, it's always been my preference in foundations or bb creams.
- the scent, it has almost the same baby powder scent the skin extra bb cream has
- spf 30 pa ++ YEAH such a big improvement from their usual spf 20
- lasting, almost as long as my beloved l'egere white multi bb cream
- did not break me out, i've been using it for 5 days now, no new zit, no millia [small white raised dots]
- light to medium coverage on some of my redness and older gray scars.
- hardly needs setting powder
- 40 grams??? for PhP995, wow even the skin extra has 45 g content. plus it feels already half empty in the container and i've only been using it for 5 days. pffft
- the price here in Manila
Back to the disclaimer:
there will be promos where you can get diary/notebook, a box, paper bags, and posters with leader's face on it. if you don't know much about the face shop, you can first try their bb creams. i bought this hd bb and so far i like it. i've the quick and clean and hydro splash bb. but behold, after several years of just having the skin extra and quick and clean they have expanded to bring in their men's bb cream to manila as well. so if you want to buy enough to get the hyunjoong promos try these out.
i'm actually setting my sights on the bb cream in leader's new ad, the container reminds me of skin79 LOL thanks to my wordpress reader: Zizen for the headsup on this ad.
