REVIEW: The Face Shop Hydrosplash BB Cream



ADDENDUM:
TO THIS DAY AND YES, I'VE BEEN TRYING THIS AGAIN, I STILL CAN'T MANAGE TO MAKE THIS WORK ON MY FACE.  SO IT'S THE PRODUCT NOT ME ANYMORE.  IT FEELS HEAVY ON MY FACE AFTER A WHILE.  I GET OILY AFTER 2-3 HOURS AND THE COVERAGE GOES AWAY AND, IT GETS CAKEY AROUND MY EYES AND NOSE.  OK MOM, THIS SHOULD WORK BETTER ON YOUR DRY-COMBO SKIN.  IKA NGA NI JOE QUIRINO-TEK IT AWEE! google him if you dare!  hahaha i'm that old or i remember that much!


i've had this in my stash of months now and decided, ok fine, i'll finally use  this bb cream.  i was warned by a couple of peeps about this bb.  one person said it's too light even on her another said it makes her oily.  but i braved the feed back on this and tried it out myself.

there's some writing in english at the back for people who wanna know what the product is about.
Photobucket
how can something be a little runny yet thick at the same time? i don't know, i didn't make the thing.
Photobucket
wow, at-eh Marge! uminom ka ng suka?
Photobucket
after it sets a bit, pic below with the flash OFF
Photobucket
reflective even if it's only spf20! [pic below has the flash turned on]
Photobucket
wow, finally i found something that's more fair than my neck and chest! NOT! hehehe, it just looks 'normal' without the flash.  i'm not entirely sure why i've yet mastered how to apply this particular bb cream but considering it claims to be 70% water it's easy to get cakey applying this on.  i always use my fingers because i'm too lazy to clean my brushes and i find that when i use my fingers applying liquid face products i get less streaks ;-)
water on water.  to set my bb creams i use my revlon colorstay aqua.  but but **hangs head in shame** this particular bb cream that claims to be 70% water made what little foundation i put on it look blotchy, some base this is. [part of a bb cream promise is that it's a base for your foundations].
Likes:
  • it has a very light scent it's hardly noticeable at all
  • creamy
  • the price, this one is not too expensive considering it's a product from the face shop! PhP695
  • moisturizing
Dislikes:
  • have not mastered the art of applying this, ikr, i've gone through so many different bb creams already yet when i apply this one it just turns out either uneven or blotchy, still it may still be my technique
  • reflective
  • may only look like it has good coverage on the pix but either for pores or scars like that one slightly to the left of my nose can still be seen.  pores are covered too well either.
  • i get oily in about a couple of hours.  hehehe i notice i have more face oil blotting films to throw out at the end of my shift when i use this.
  • too dewy
haven't tried this long enough to see if it would break me out, nairita ko sa finish.
i recommend this if you have uber dry skin and if you're unfortunate enough to be seated right below your a/c vent
will i repurchase: nope imma gonna try their other bb creams [Flebeauté Collagenic BB Cream (PHP 995) and the Face It Radiance Splash BB Cream SPF 20 PA++ (PHP 695)].  if i can't make this hydrosplash bb cream work for me, then off to mom it goes, she has dry skin ;-)

this hydrosplash bb is currently the worst bb cream i've ever tried (well so far, even if the skin food aloe broke me out at least it wore nice and lasted all day without caking up on me

This is my favorite BB cream, actually. :)) I apply mine with a sponge, maybe you can get better results with that?

it's a great bb cream on the back on my hand. yeah i should experiment. i'm just so lazy to wash brushes and find sponges very wasteful [where so much product gets stuck in the sponge =(]

LOL! i use the sigma f80 to apply foundations marge. etude house also has a good strippling brush diba? :P you should try applying it with a brush.

Marge said...
