I spotted this bb cream a month back, an picked it up asap, I have three bb creams, maybelline, bourjois and this one now plus a bb stick. I have to be honest I dont like bb creams and till now the maybelline bb stick has worked best for me, basically because tinted moisturizers dont give me the right coverage and then my skin is oily so I need something more than a bb cream which is really like a lighter foundation that actually your skin absorbs like a moisturizer.

The price and the packaging is perfect, you get in a big tube, double the size in appearance of the maybelline one, I hate the maybelline one because it gives me a sheen I hate, but this one is sans the sheen I would say it is semi matte and still very moisturizing.

Let me tell why I hate bb creams, I have oily acne prone skin, i need better coverage and I stay in a hot and humid climate where all your makeup melts in minutes.So if you are better off, then this product will work great for you.

There are three shades and this one is the medium one, others were too white or dark, I am happy with this one.I love the texture and it blends nicely, you need to use very less and it gives a nice even skin tone. This shade though looks yellow leaves a white cast if used a little too much and that is the biggest con.

Coming to the finish, it looks a little semi matte but in this humid environ, I need to set it with a powder for sure or else it melt in three hours, in this climate it does not give me oil control or coverga enough I need, so I suggest if you have dry to normal skin that does not need much coverage, then this is for you.

It does not photograph well at all, it gives a very bad white cast and then it melts on my skin in three hours, in three hours my face is a mess, remember my oily skin and humid climate. So again this will be better for other skin types.

It gets absorbed a little too much and then it looks like no coverage at all and only the white cast remains, that is my biggest problem actually, I am not happy with the coverage and the melting factor considering the place I am in.I am not happy with the way it melts here in Chennai, on my face in three hours either.

Honestly speaking, this will work great for dry to normal skin, giving nice moisture, and the skin that does not need much coverage, you will love it. Oily skin that needs coverage can skip it, if you stay in humidity, skip it,personally bb creams dont work for me, if I need to set it with powder then I might as well use a foundation.

Who should try it:

  • Dry skin
  • Normal skin
  • Problem free skin
  • If you are in non-humid areas
  • Skin that needs light coverage with moisturization

The texture and thickness is very much like Maybelline bb cream but that sheen is not there but the white cast is, plus shades are limited, but I have a strong feeling other skin types in dry areas will love it.

IMBB Rating:

3.75/5 for the skin types I can see will love it.
