I’m not a foundation junkie or BB cream fanatic, simply because they seem too cakey looking on my face and only worsen my skin condition (oiliness). So I didn’t expect I would come across a product like this and if I’m not mistaken, it’s a new BB Cream from Maybelline that promises to give high quality coverage. Their product ignites you to try it, especially when you read all the promises (written on the back) of the benefits you’ll get from using it.
1. Perfectly covers imperfections
2. Hides pores
3. All day wear
4. Blocks UV rays with SPF 50 PA++++
5. Protects skin from pollution
6. Brighten Skin
7. Smoothes skin
8. Even skintone
These benefit claims might be true for some people but not others, mainly because of the fact that not all skin types are the same or suitable for BB creams. It is still good to listen to yourself nowadays and sense what’s right instead of just going with what’s trendy or new in stores. And it’s still good to stick to your fave face products that your skin is already used to, that can prevent you from damaging your skin (i.e. if you use the wrong product).
So as for me, I might break out when my skin doesn’t like the new products I’m using but only sometimes. Usually, my pimples are due to hormonal imbalance or monthly period symptoms and are not caused by the products I use. That’s why I get to try new products and see if they work for me. My only skin problem is my oiliness, large pores and facial hair. Other than that, I’m safe to try different face products.
Now onto my personal review! Besides being affordable (compared to other BB creams that are sold on the market) it seems promising. It blends really well with my skin tone (by the way, I got it in shade 02 Medium), it has good coverage even without using too much product and is very smooth on the skin + very light as well. Another good side of it is that it has SPF50 and protects your skin from pollution. When it comes to preventing oiliness, sad to say it didn’t work for me. I’m still oily and I think I have to accept it nalang! Hihihi
But I still consider it one of my new favorite face products and as long as I get the same results, I will always consider buying it again and again.
P.S. I didn’t use any filters for the photos or color enhancements so you could see the real thing.
