My Experience with The Face Shop Photo Blur BB Cream:
Beginning with the packaging of the product. The BB Cream comes in a white colored plastic tube, with the details printed on it in black and pink fonts. The tube has the product details printed in both Korean and English. The tube is small and slender. Hence, it fits inside my makeup pouch easily and does not eat up much space. It closes with a regular screw on type cap, that fits nicely making this fit for travel purposes. Overall, the packaging is good and travel friendly.
Now coming to the BB cream. It comes only in one shade, that is the biggest con of this product. The shade is light and it is apt for fair to medium skin tones. But it will look white and ashy on deeper skin tones. Luckily, this is the perfect match for my skin tone. It looks little white initially and settles down to the normal skin tone after a few minutes. So, I am glad that it suits my skin tone nicely. The BB cream has a faint citrus fragrance, that is quite mild and refreshing.
The texture of the BB cream is quite thick. It has a thick paste like consistency. The formula is non-greasy and fit for normal to oily skin types. But, it is not suitable for people with dry skin. I have combination skin and this product goes amazingly on my skin and gives perfect matte finish. I had tried so many BB creams till now but each of them made my skin oily. So, this one is the perfect match for my skin in terms of shade and formula. It blends into the skin within seconds giving a natural non-cakey appearance.
The cream does not give a heavy coverage but it perfectly hides minor imperfections. The cream gives a perfect blurring effect and leaves my skin look more flawless and free from any imperfections. It helps to minimize the appearance of my skin pores and hence it gives an illusion of perfect skin. It gives such a beautiful blurring effect, that I love using it as my makeup base too. For my everyday use, I simply dab a little bit of this BB Cream on my face. It looks very natural and this makes it apt for everyday use. It gives a brightening effect to the skin. It comes with SPF-37 PA++ that protects the skin from harmful UV rays and makes it fit to be used under the sun.
Though the formula is non-drying but still I prefer using it after my regular CTM as suggested by the brand. Most of the BB creams dry out my skin. But, I was surprised to see that my skin looked smooth, flawless and hydrated even after hours of application. And not a single bit oil or grease was there on my skin. It looked perfectly matte through out the day. I have sensitive and acne prone skin, that reacts to things very easily. But, this BB Cream never broke me out. It has been a couple of days since I am using this product and it has not disappointed me in any way. It does not provide any moisturization to the skin, so I think it will not be providing adequate moisturization to the skin.
The longevity of this BB Cream is somewhere around 5-6 hours, which is quite impressive for a BB Cream. Overall, I am head over heels in love this product. No BB Cream has satisfied me this much.
