I would say this deserves 3.5 lippies but I gave it 4 instead of 3 because I would repurchase it again.
- Strong "fragrance-y" smell when you first dispense it. It disappears within 10 minutes so it's not too bad. If you have sensitive skin it might irritate you though.
- Oil control isn't as good as I would like. Even with powder, my nose is oily 4-5 hours after applying. My usual foundation lasts longer than this so I was expecting more.
- When I first got it, I applied way too much. It made my face look awful and cakey. I learned the trick is to use just one pump and then apply a dollop on each part of my face (each cheek, nose, forehead, and chin) and blend from there. A little goes farther than you'd think.
- If you're very pale, this won't work for you. Since my skin got a little darker in summer, I found it matched my skin. Otherwise this would be too dark for me in the winter.
- Does not cover my pores completely. I have problem pores, so I didn't expect a BB cream to cover them. If your pores are minor, this isn't a problem.
- This is the first product I've tried that gives me a dewy finish that I like (minus the oily nose hours later). Having oily skin, I usually go for matte face products but I find the dewy finish with this one gives me just the right summer glow. I was told my face had a healthy glow.
- I like the hygienic pump. It makes application easy.
- For the price it is a good buy.
- Doesn't feel heavy in hot weather.
- It hasn't caused me to break out. I did have one small breakout near my chin, but it was most likely due to diet and hormones.
Ok first of all, I see several reviews that indicate this does not have sunscreen, and that is not really correct. Although there isn't an spf rating on the package, the third ingredient (so a relatively large concentration) is titanium dioxide, which is a physical sunscreen. Also, a couple of people in the Amazon questions section (but who knows if that's accurate) state there's an spf of 30. So if you are looking for a bb cream without sunscreen (although there doesn't appear to have a CHEMICAL sunscreen, which is generally the culprit in skin sensitivities) for some reason, this is not it. However, the spf of 30 is questionable without confirmation from the company, so I always wear sunscreen under it just in case, if I'm wearing it during the day. One of these days, I'll contact the company to confirm the spf rating!
Ok, on to my review. This is thicker and heavier than most Asian bb creams, but has much better coverage and wears better. It actual goes on like a medium to full coverage foundation. It is excellent for covering weird flaky dry patches and redness. It is very warm in tone and a little too dark for us SUPER pale folks, but I manage to pull it off during the summer for going out at night, with a lot of blending. It's a little heavy/thick for daytime wear, IMO. Still a nice product for the price ($16-$18) overall.
Finally! A bb cream with no spf! I can't use spf or sunscreen and this is the only one I have found without it. And I really love it! I have found my hg bb cream/foundation finally. The spf trend has really been hard on me although I do understand the importance of it. I am very fair skinned and I was worried this was too dark but a light powder on top works wonders. My skin loves this stuff, when I do try and wear regular foundation I can tell a big difference in how my skin looks and feels. This seems to calm my skin.
I am a sucker for packaging so that the reason why I bought this stuff it was very sticky and tacky feeling but i love Lioele so I decided to give Triple the solution a try and honesty Beyond the solution doesnt even compare to triple the solution. I will say before you buy this product buy the sample first so see if you really like it, and one thing a little goes a long way with the lioele BB creams.
This is by far the best BB I've ever had! Loves this stuff..
I have dry/sensitive skin which is also prone to eczema, and this cream works amazing on my skin. This cream does not enhance dry spots or pores and my face does not feel irritated at all.
Beyond the solution does not have a powdery finish after application, just moist and dewey :) Feels great and lasts all day without a primer!
I just started learning and buying Korean cosmetics in the last couple of years and I had never used a BB cream before. I used to try and test a lot of foundations because I have a rather sensitive skin that is prone to have spots because of eczema with most products, so I had a lot of trouble to find a good foundation that doesn't trigger my eczema. I do not however have much acne, just some irregular texture in my forehead and one or other spot that breaks out when I eat things I am allergic to. Anyway so I tried foundations from many different brands and kept failing to find one that fit my skin needs, and then when I learned about Korean cosmetics and saw this BB cream and read about it, I had a "why not?" attitude. I mean I had spent hundreds of euros already in products I ended up giving to friends, family or just throwing out, and this was not as expensive as they were. So I got it, and I tried it, and it worked! My eczema didn't react to it, my skin kept a flawless finish through the day, covers the irregular texture on my forehead, and the colour works perfectly on my skin. The only bad thing would be that you have to be careful and DO NOT apply in the eyebrow zone, it will cling to them and make them look blonde-ish. Other than that, great product with a great price.
Love, love, love, love this product. It is so lightweight, doesn't feel heavy it covers my moderate acne nicely. You can still see I have acne but it looks natural. Does not look cakey which is huge for me. Its a lot better than most foundations I have tried. Its a little pricey compared to other BB creams but I'm in love with this. I will repurchase this for many years to come until my acne is all gone and I can be makeup free.
I ordered a sample of this to test it before I bought a full sized tube, and god am I glad I did! For 2 reasons.
Firstly, I found out after I'd ordered the sample that Lioele, despite claims to the contrary, test on animals. So that's an automatic no for me.
And secondly, this is hands-down the worst product of it's type that I have ever used.
If they could make mascara that CLINGS like this, they'd make a fortune. It feels like it's going to take a month to scrub off my face. I'm not a hairy person, but this gunk has adhered to every little hair on my face, and made me look like a yeti.
It has accentuated every tiny flaw in my normally pretty-ok skin... I look awful. It's stuck in every pore, and while I had minimal blackheads and pimples before, I now look like one of those girls who pancakes makeup over her acne... my whole face is one, unnatural colour, but weirdly lumpy looking.
I tried buffing most of it off with tissues to see if that improved things, but it still looks like hideous, caky theatre makeup.
And lastly, it stinks like cheap hotel soap. It's well within it's use-by, but it has that stomach-churning smell of the rancid make-up in an aged aunts bathroom drawer.
I had this on my face for about 20 minutes... when I finally got it off, I had a pimple on my nose that wasn't there before I applied the cream. I didn't think it was possible to get zits that fast!
About an hour after that, my eyes were puffing up, by the time I went to bed, my face was red and blotchy, and now I'm taking antihistamines to try stem the itchy red rash and swollen eyes I developed overnight.
I have NEVER had an allergic reaction to a skin-type make up before (I have had reactions to eye make up, but never this severe, just an itching). What on earth do they put in this stuff!?
Its a very good product. it smooth lovely on the skin and it look flawless.
My only problem with is that it is to pink for me.
I am NC20 - i dont know why people wrote that its on the yellow side.
it is good for someone who is NW20-25.
I'm a huge advocate for BB Creams and have been using them for many years now and this is hands down one of my favorite if not my favorite.
This comes in one shade only and luckily it works very well with my skin tone. I love the design of the packaging with the pump. This is also fragrance free which is a plus because I hate BB creams with fragrances (it gets very overwhelming on the face).
For me, this is a year round product so I can use this for all 4 seasons. I like it for winter because this is one of few bb creams that does not accentuate dry skin on my face. It goes on very smoothly with just the right texture. No breakouts no irritation. (And my skin is very acne prone).
Oil control is okay but I don't expect much since my tzone is extremely oily as the day goes on so I usually put on a setting powder to control that. No foundation or bb cream can really prevent my face from looking oily at the end of the day by itself so I must have a pressed translucent powder with me.
Another fact to keep in mind is that I don't believe this product contains any SPF since I don't notice anywhere on the bottle or box that states the SPF. I'm okay with this since I get my SPF from my moisturizer. And this is great for nighttime if you don't want to look like a ghost in flash photography. (But correct me if I'm wrong on the SPF bit since I can't read Korean)
I'm currently on my 3rd tube of this and will definitely continue to repurchase.
