We all know i love bbcreams [well if u didnt know..uh now u know? XD]
And everytime i buy a new bbcream or post a photo of one..you guys always ask me to do a review
But to very honest..i dont know what to write about…so if u have a question or a particular need u need a bbcream to do..tell/ask me!! XD
There are two types available
Moisture BBcream or Silky BBcream
One is geared towards providing more moisture [i suppose this is better for those with dry skin or those who live in a cold/dry climate?]
The other is for oily control and a smooth appearance.
Since i have an oilslick of a Tzone..i am always on the hunt for a bbcream that does well in the humid/hot summer weather. My current HG bbcream is Oriks Vitamin C but it does not contain spf and it does not do well in extremely humid weather. I get super shiny and a lot of blotting is needed. Heck i think it starts to melt off in extremely hot/humid weather sometimes.
To be honest..i am not sure where this is made..as the words on the back and on the box are all in mandarin.
My thoughts [after 4 days of usage]
- has no discernable smell [YAY!]
- the bbcream isnt thick but applies evenly and provides good coverage
- is very sweatproof like sunblock
- has AMAZING oil control. <– yes it really does!!!
- does not contain much product for its price XD
Would i buy it again?
YES! the oil control is as good as it claims. Despite the fact i was out the whole day in 31degrees C with 95% humidity, i only had to blot once and it wasnt very shiny either!! And it doesnt melt off or rub off easy. Very pleased with this. I am actually going to buy another bottle as backup!
The bbcream is only 25spf so if you are going to be in the sun..do remember to wear a proper sunblock underneath. This is my HG
Its made by Clover and i bought it in Japan.
Price: 1600yen [approx USD$16]
Since we talking about sun products..i gotta talk about my summer must-haves!
My HG Day Essence from KOSE finally finished so i have switched to SKII
Both have spf25. Used the new one for around a month now. So far so good. But i think the one from KOSE is better [for whitening? i am not sure..i somehow prefer it more as its texture is lighter too]
Here’s something else that one MUST HAVE in summer [actually all the time]
DEODERANT! its amazing how something so basic is often forgone by loads of people. UGH! Main reason why i do not like public transport..esp during summer/hot months.
And my number one must have for summer/hot climates….
Face & Body ice cooling gel by Innisfree.
Sadly as i bought this in korea last october..i have since forgotten the price.
This is a fantastic spray! Oddly it comes out more like a gust of cold air than mist..i cant really feel any mist at all XD It cools you down almost immediately and since its not a mist..your makeup doesnt get affected. HIGHLY reccomend this.
Tell me..what are your must-haves for warm weather/hot climate??
Ok i think i rambled on too much as usual. My monday posts are far too long arent they?
Hope everyone is doing well!!
