THE FACE SHOP: CLEAN FACE OIL-FREE BB CREAM

May 25, 2013

I don't know about you guys, but I prefer to use BB cream to foundation in my daily basis. The first reason is because I'm still a college student, okay there's nothing wrong with being a college student, that doesn't mean that you cannot use foundation if you're still a college student, BUT I study in a Tourism Institute, which means I have to wear uniforms every single day, and that's the reason why! I think heavy makeup is not really suitable with uniforms. And the next reason is because BB cream is more light-weight than foundation, I personally only use foundation for special occasion when I need full coverage.

The word "oil-free" caught up my eyes when I was at The Face Shop store and decided to buy this. Yep, I have oily-combination skin, like most of people who live in tropical country like Indonesia.

The size is not really big, but 35ml is enough for me and I think this is really good for traveling. The packaging is tube, some people would prefer pump dispenser, but I don't really mind with the tube packaging. And as always for Korean beauty products, all of the description is written in Hangul, no English, somehow I wish they produced their products with English description considering Korean beauty products are pretty well-known worldwide.
It is supposed to treat oily and problem skin, it also helps prevent breakouts. The BB cream is really easy to apply, easy to blend with bare hands, sponge or brush. It has medium coverage, which I need for my daily basis, it can cover minor blemishes and acne scars, but still need to cover blemishes with concealer. It has pretty nice smell, and has dewy finish, but it you prefer matte finish, you can cover it up with powder.
The BB cream stays all day long, I don't need to retouch, and yay to the oil control, I don't have oily face for 6-8 hours after apply it on my face. But it depends though, if I have to work outdoor and stuff, my face tends to get oily in the T zone area, but still it does a pretty good job for the oil control.

A little goes a long way, as you can see for the pictures above is the same amount I use for my whole face! The only thing I don't like about this stuff is that it only has one shade, but fortunately it absorbs to my skin really well and matches my skin tone. Oh, and one more thing it doesn't has SPF like other BB cream does.

I don't know why there's white cast when I took the photo with flash, it usually appears when the BB cream has SPF in it and creates white cast when you took photo with flash. That's why when you're going out with your friends or family, especially at night, and you're going to cam-whoring, never use BB cream with SPF, never use sunscreen on your face, unless you want to look like you're wearing a mask in photos.

Overall I like this BB cream, even I don't use it every single day, because I keep switching my BB cream hehehehe, but really I love the oil control, it doesn't break me out, it has nice coverage as well!

Rating: 4/5
Size: 35ml
Price: $$$$$
Repurchase: Until I found BB cream with better oil control, then YES



P.S. I'm thinking on trying CC cream, do you have any CC cream recommendation or any CC cream you want me to review? Let me know, and have a great weekend :)
