I am all about BB creams theses days. I swear I haven’t used any foundation in about 2 years. My MAC foundation has been just lying there for quite sometime now. I love using BB and CC Creams BB クリーム/CC クリーム as they provide light coverage but at the same time let my skin breathe! I genuinely feel that using CC cream and BB creams has improved my skin and reduced breakouts. I had been using foundation everyday for past few years and my skin was really behaving bad (I can’t blame my skin, it didn’t get to breath with all the heavy makeup on top). Thanks God! I switched to BB Creams on time!

BB creams also know blemish balm is south-east Asian beauty product. It was originally formulated in Germany by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients to protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin at the same time providing light coverage for post laser scars, acne and other blemishes. It is also been called as “the secret of Korean actresses”.

I got メイベリン ニューヨーク Maybelline New York Clear Glow Bright Benefit Cream last year in India. Maybelline claims that this BB cream is infused with a blend of good for you ingredients: talc, fairness complex, moisturiser and skin brightening minerals to deliver 8 skin transforming benefits. This BB 8-in-1 skin transformer:

  1. Instantly brightens : Brightens skin to one tone lighter
  2. Protects with SPF 21/PA +++ : Has a smooth, light and non greasy texture
  3. Freshens : Resists sweat & sebum for 5 hours, evens tone
  4. Hides imperfections and corrects un-even skin tone
  5. Smoothes : Instantly makes skin softer and smoother, protects, clarifies,
  6. Hydrates : Moisturises all day ( 8 hours )
  7. Conceals : perfectly conceals flaws blemishes & redness and finally
  8. Mattifies : Controls shines all day. It has no oil and no pore clogging suitable for sensitive skin.

It comes in 3 shades. I got the darkest one that is 01 Nude. It has fragrance, but suitable for skin. It has a nice smell, faintly of flowers. It comes in 18 ml pack and retails for around $ 4 in India. Packaging is cute and handy. It fits easily in my makeup bag. It comes in a tiny green plastic with a silver screw cap. The tube has a nozzle, so it is easy to control the product. Also, it is suitable for all skin types.

It has a smooth and light texture. It is non-greasy but still moisturises the skin. A small amount spreads easily. Only one squeeze is enough to cover my entire face. It has lasted me for 2 months and I can still use it for one more month, although I am using it daily.

It lasts all day with some touch up with powder, although I don’t agree with oil control. My nose becomes oily after 2-3 hours.

I am NC 43.5 so I add a drop of a darker foundation to match my skin tone. It does not conceal imperfections. So if you have marks on your face, you definitely need to use a concealer. It gives a light coverage. It does not hide redness on my face. I generally set it with a powder which gives me an added coverage. However, it is perfect for everyday use. Using this keeps my skin looking fresh. It makes my face look dewy and natural. It doesn’t look cakey at all.

This BB Cream didn’t break me out. The texture of my skin has improved. I am really happy with it. I really recommend this BB cream for daily use. Don’t expect too much coverage but you can easily make it work with a little concealer or just add a small drop of your favourite foundation!
