L'OREAL: White Perfect BB Cream

Monday, May 14, 2012

          BB Creams have really taken the makeup industry by storm. Most cosmetic companies worldwide, both drugstore and high end, have released their own line of BB Creams. Others may not be so thrilled about choosing from a buffet of BB Creams in the market but I actually love and enjoy trying different brands. 

L-R: Missha, Neutrogena, Tony Moly, Shu Uemura, L'oreal, Garnier
          
          Having a lot of choices for me is a good thing because more choices mean more chances of finding the perfect match for my skin. Also, newly released BB Creams usually offer solutions to problems caused by or not addressed by those released earlier and thus can be considered as improved versions.


          Luckily I was able to find my skin's perfect match thanks to Tony Moly's Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream. But my search didn't end there, I still try out other brands as they release new BB Creams. Just recently I got L'oreal White Perfect BB Cream as a gift and I've been using this for more than a week now.

What I LOVE about it:
  • It comes in a 30 ml squeeze out tube which gives you full control of dispensing just the right amount of product. 
  • The size is travel friendly so you can just put it in your makeup pouch. 
  • A little amount actually goes a long way, just a pea size is enough to cover your entire face and neck. 
  • It has a light creamy texture comparable to that of Tony Moly's Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream that spreads effortlessly.
  • It instantly lightens your skin tone and immediately blends with your complexion without giving a gray undertone.
  • It has medium coverage which can hide minor skin imperfections and discoloration but this might not be enough to conceal darker spots.
  • It gives your skin a moisturized finish without looking greasy.
  • It feels very light on your skin and it doesn't cake or crease over time.

What I don't like:
  • Though it offers protection from both UVA and UVB, it only has SPF20. You might want to pair this with a primer that has higher SPF so you won't worry about having to reapply it during the day.
  • This particular product is not locally available.

I recommend this product  to those of you who:
  • want a moisturized and naturally dewy skin
  • need medium coverage to hide skin imperfections.
  • have less sun exposure and don't need a higher SPF.
  • don't mind applying a primer with higher SPF.

NOTES:
  • I'll be trying Garnier's BB Cream and will be doing a review on it next time.
  • Since Aveeno and Olay (my 2 most favorite brands of moisturizers) haven't joined the band wagon of manufacturing their own BB Cream and they have tinted moisturizers instead, I was thinking of doing a comparison on them soon.

    1. L'oreal BB cream is already available at Trinoma Mall, inside Landmark. But this particular BB cream was given to me as a gift bought from Korea. Though the one in Trinoma has a different packaging, the texture, scent, shade and coverage were comparable. Hope this helps. :)
