When it comes down to a facial coverup cream, hands down BB cream wins for me! I’ve been using BB creams for five years now, and my all time favorite is the L’egere Double White O2 BB Cream from Taiwan. If I was force to pick and use only one makeup product for rest of my life, then BB cream it shall be.
BB Cream was more commonly used in Asia but, last year it entered the American market and many brands here are releasing this type of product. Despite the introduction of all these new BB Creams, I’ve always come back to this one…
“Your all in one cosmetic cream to purify and energize the skin. Whitening + Mineral + Organic.” – L’egere
Here is a swatch of the product. On the left, I have it blended on my skin. On the right side, the product is not blended.
Nothing special. The cream is inside a metallic purple tube.
Very easy to use. Squeeze some of the products on your hand and apply to your face. Alternatively, you can use a foundation brush if you don’t want to use your hands. The color is suppose to be a “one color fits all” but, I think this is most effective for people with at least medium shade skin color and lighter. I know the swatch above looks lighter on me but after a minute, the color adjust to my natural shade.
What I like about this BB cream:
- Not heavy like a foundation and offers more coverage then a tinted moisturizer.
- Nobody knows I’m wearing it!! It looks so natural that people think I don’t have anything on ;)
- Last throughout the whole day! On a hot day, I still have to blot my face as usual but this bb cream stays on well
- Doesn’t cover up “huge” acne well when I get some, but that’s okay because I want my acne to breathe anyway so I try to not cover it up with makeup
Approximately $25 for 1.23 fl oz. if you purchase on eBay. It takes me about 3-4 months to finish one tube.
Overall, I think this product is great is you want a natural, non-heavy, and long-lasting facial cream to cover up a few blemishes/even out your skin tone.
