I have been a skeptic of BB creams for such a long time. I have tried several and this is one of those that I've tried that I would regard with a positive note as "highly satisfactory". Its SPF 50 did not fail in protecting my skin especially when I have to walk out for lunch from outside my building. Shade #1 suits my skintone quite well so it did its job in covering up as well as saving my time from applying and blending foundation during early morning rush. One problem I have with it is that it can get pretty oily on the T zone since I've got combination-oily skin, so oil control film is a MUST by around late afternoon when you use this product. Despite the minor setback, I would still continue using this product and recommend this for the time-conscious working girl!
Thankfully I did not purchase this but received a travel size BB cream from one of Lancome's events. This product is not that bad on the overall, just that it wasn't suitable for me? I have combo skin but this was way too oily and shiny for my face. It's not like I experienced this much later during the day but when I first step out of the house? My sister asked if I put oil on my face, lol...Also the colour is a lil pale looking, not suitable for all skin shades I believe. On the plus side, it's SPF 50.
I am happy with this product. It has good UV protection which I need as I live in a very harsh climate. The texture is very light and I don't find it at all greasy.
There seem to be 2 colour options and I think that by mistake I bought the slightly darker one. But it doesn't seem to matter as it blends very well.
To date, ive treid the following bb creams:
1. Misha BB Cream
2. BioEssence BB Cream
3. Biotherm BB Cream
4. Lancome BB Cream
Final verdict- Lancome wins hands down!
Excellent product. Very mildly scented. Smooth texture. Blends well into the skin- Only trick is to allow it to "settle" into our skin before appying any further pressed powder/ foundations.
Cons? Well, just like most of Lancome products, the primary issue is the price. But genereally worth the price that u paid for.
When I look for base makeup I only want one thing: for it to leave my skin like it was before I applied it. Lancome BB complete does not irritate skin, and is light enough for a natural, glowing coverage. powerful SPF 50 guards against UVA and UVB. It is a tad on the sheer side, but if you have already good skin it can enhance your natural glow. It is expensive for a BB, but my skin can breathe while looking dewy with this.
I got this in Asia while I was there, seems to be an Asian-exclusive since it has *whitening* properties etc. For the most part it's a good BB cream, a legit one at that, since it only comes in one color and has nutrients for your skin, whitening, moisture, SPF, all that jazz. It smells inoffensive, like something I can live with. I don't particularly like scents, and while I love Chanel products for instance, I hate the way they smell. Lancome however, I can deal with easily. It is dewy, and I have dry skin, so it's good for my skin type, but I can't speak to oil control since I'm on the other side of the skin spectrum. I like having high, high, high, broad spectrum SPF however, so I'm grateful this product fulfills that, but my one gripe is that it is very grey. I have a tan currently so I'm out of the 20-area for most brands and perhaps even slightly over the 30's. This is definitely visible on my skin. I don't know, if you're into whitening and would like to appear paler, this definitely helps but I'm not about that and want to embrace my current tanness, however involuntary and unwanted. If they make a different batch for tanner skins I'd say this was quite a winner if you like BB creams.
