The BB Cream’s packaging is fairly simple and I would say, unique among its kind. It comes in a foil packet that can be divided in to half. It has an easy-tear feature so you don’t need to have scissors with you whenever you opt to use it. Depending on how you use your BB Creams, each half can either last you for 1-2 uses. I like these types of packaging if you would just like to try the BB cream or if you’re going on a really short trip, because you don’t need to worry about storage. However, in terms of storing it in my stash, once you open it, you need to find a place to keep the foil packet steady, otherwise it will leak. If you would like to take this with you during those long trips, I suggest you place this in a separate resealable plastic bag so if in case it leaks it wont get everywhere. OR, you can just use the entire half whenever you do your makeup so you don’t need to worry about storage.
This BB Cream comes in 2 shades: Light and Beige. I am in the shade of Light and so far it matches my skin perfectly. Both shades are more yellow toned, which is something that I like because it’s really suitable for more Pinays. The formula/consistency of this product is actually very liquidy thereby making it a lot easier to blend even with just using your fingers. It’s very lightweight so it wont set nor emphasize the dry areas of your face.
It offers a sheer to light, yet buildable coverage. At the photo above, I used the entire half of the sachet, as I’ve mentioned before, usually an entire half lasts me for about 2 uses, but in this case I used all of it. At first layer, it concealed some of my rednesses and it made my pores less visible. It also evened out my skin tone. Then at the final/second layer, it finally concealed some of my minor blemishes as well as my broken capillaries near my mouth. Of course, I still had to use some concealer but still. It offered a nice coverage for a BB Cream.
I prefer to apply this with a brush. But of course, by using a brush you risk wasting bit more product since it’ll just get absorbed (since it’s very liquidy). It’s a bit tacky once applied but it can be remedied with a setting powder. It’s also not that overly dewy, compared to those other common BB creams so if you’re not into those, then you might like this one. Longevity-wise, since I have a normal to dry skin, this lasted on me for more than five hours or so without using primer underneath. If you have oily skin, you might want to use a primer first.
This BB cream surprisingly doesn’t have any scent. Or if it does, maybe my nose is messing with me because perhaps it’s very subtle, that I can’t smell it? Lol.
All in all, I really think that this is a good BB Cream. It’s really cheap/affordable, it’s quite handy and it can compete against other drugstore BB Creams. I just hope that they can come up with a more travel/storage friendly packaging, say a tube, etc. Regardless, if you’re looking for a new BB cream to try without going over your budget, I suggest you try this one. This is especially ideal for those with normal to dry skin, but as I’ve said, if you have oily skin, just use a primer underneath.
