REVIEW: Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion with video review and application demo

As some of you may have deduced i'm on the mailing list of Laneige Philippines and I was advised that the latest on their snow bb line has made it to the Philippines.  Naturally, i just had to get one!
Product description is below please click the pics to enlarge and the description is readable.
the ingredient list, i don't see no paraben listed, but i could be wrong.
the compact
the sticker cover of the cushion.
the lid and what separates the product from the sponge
what the product looks like.
has a luminous satin finish.
the really fine rubber sponge
the product on me no concealer under my eyes.  pic taken with no flash
with flash, just a little reflective, but it seems the skin on my arm is similar to the skin on my face, so i'm good with this product.
complete face, pic without flash.
a pic with me with flash.  i lightly patted with a setting powder.
my video review with demo on how to apply the product.
Likes:

  • 3 shades the lightest for someone like my skin, something in the midldle and a third shade that the SA says can be used by women with kayumangi skin (the malay-indo skin shade, the light brown)
  • spf 50 pa +++
  • a liquid in a compact so you don't have to bring your liquid foundation in those glass bottles when traveling
  • a little product goes a very long way
  • good shade match
  • has not broken me out
  • coverage is medium to buildable to almost full coverage, excellent pore coverage
  • i need very little concealer when i use this either under my eye or on my scars
  • photographs well - DEPENDING ON YOUR FLASH this is not reflective, so a xenon flash would work anything less and well it will be reflective
  • does not cake up in the middle of the day
  • satin luminous finish but manages not to make me look oily when i already am oily LOL
  • lasts all day, around 10-12 hours (though the revlon colorstay liquid foundation lasts just a little bit longer by about 2 hours LOL)
  • does NOT rub off on the rim of my glasses, my phone, or my clothes.
  • oh no need to set, unless you're like me, oc oc hahaha
Neutral
  • fragrance same fragrance as the rest of their face products
  • i really can't complain about the price, it's actually PhP300 less expensive here than the srp in SG
Dislikes:
  • just like the revlon colorstay liquid foundation, this is very difficult to remove. i use my cleansing oil and twice per cleansing routine, i then follow it up with a foaming cleanser and tone.  just like the colorstay, it's possible you can swim with this snow bb cushion on your face and unless you rub your face? it won't come off!
  • it's a bitch to clean the sponge.  the product seeps in the white part of the sponge provided.  it's easy to clean the blue part of the sponge but not the white part of it
Do i recommend? well yeah?! duh? the travel convenience alone is its selling point, since it's SPF50 and PA of +++ you hit two birds with one stone you have your foundation and sun screen in one compact with mirror!

Marge said...

Mariflor Lopez said...

much better po ito kesa sun bb? :)

Marge said...

Hello po! What's the best setting powder for this? I tried using my Ellana Espresso con Panna Finishing Powder and White Chocolate HD Mineral Powder Primer (used separately) but they don't seem to make a smooth finish on top of the Soothing Cushion BB. I also tried my Skin Food Buckwheat Loose Powder but it caked up on top of this. All three powders doesn't seem to "set" it either. Meron po ba kayong alam na paraan o product na magandang gamitin? Thank you po.

Marge said...

just like the etude house precious minerals sun bb, this does not need a setting powder, because they're both kinda sticky so if you use a synthetic or animal hair kabuki brush it's not going to work.
the lunasol puff or the puffs that come with the etude house minerals compact are suitable in applying setting powders on this and the eh sun bb if you really have to do so.
^_^ hope this helps ;-)

Kei Cachuela said...

Okay. I got it. Thank you po! =)

Marge said...

you're welcome ^_^

JhoAnne Luna said...

nice review. i wonder if there's a shade that will suit an nc30 skin. :) wala ba syang gray cast? yan kasi problem ko nun sa faceshop bb cream na may high spf nagmukha akong ghost :)

Marge said...

nope no gray cast considering it has hi spf ^_^
parang i've never experienced any gray cast with a lot of the bb creams i use EXCEPT for the missha perfect cover LOL

JhoAnne Luna said...

Thanks for the reply, by the way, LE or permanent? can't wait for your haul from korea :)

Marge said...

ano yung LE?
sige, i'll try to unpack this weekend LOL

Jhoanne Luna said...

LE = limited edition :)

Marge said...

grabe, ang taas nang spf! and laneige always produces great products, so far wala pang nakakapag put off sakin na product nang laneige ^^ thanks for the review ate Marge!! ♥

Marge said...

true, between this snow bb cushion at yung sun bb ng etude house na halos the same ang ingredients and features dito ko sa laneige hindi nag break out. la pang laneige product na kaka pag break out sakin hehehe
you're welcome ♥

JhoAnne Luna said...

mas preferred mo ba ito kesa sa fairy drops? kung first time bb cream buyer which do you recommend ? :) thanks

Marge said...

i prefer the snow bb cushion over this. but then the snow bb cushion is pretty tough to beat.
for a first time bb cream user, i like tony moly's expert triple, it's very camera flash friendly, has a matte finish yet has high spf

Marge said...

:'( moa? - eww moa, next talaga trinoma na or robinson's magnolia

disqus_qxMlBCwiLj said...

I'm thinking of buying this because you call it your "beloved" so i got curious :) and ive always trusted ur reviews. but then etude house came out with a very similar product. They even have the some puff. They call it the precious mineral any cushion. Have u tried It? How does it compare with this one? :)

Marge said...

i'll be trying that one by etude house by next week. but it sure is difficult to switch from my beloved since it gave me absolutely no problems with an almost flawless finish ;-)
