I live in sunny, summer Singapore and the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion is REALLY helpful in keeping my make up on. At first I didn't quite believe the amount of coverage it could do with only some light application, so I decided to try it on myself. I applied 1-2 layers on only the left side of my face, and let it absorb for about 10mins. I WAS MINDBLOWN with how well it covered the dark spots and dark circles on that side. The right side of my face looked dull and 'spotty' compared to the left side. I also didn't feel sticky on my face and I hardly needed any touch up even though I applied about 1-2 layers for a casual day out.
I also love that it comes with a refill, so it kind of feels like I'm getting 2 bb cushions for the price of 1.
The SPF 50+ is god-sent, seeing as to how I live in a country just above the freaking equator (SUN SUN SUN 24/7 SUN).
Price-wise it can be quite steep in Singapore, around SGD 65 off the Laniege counters, so I would recommend either getting it from Korea directly (only SGD 38!).
This product is one of the most natural BB out there, it fits into my skin so well that I thought i wasn't wearing anything. This also gave me a natural finish not matte or dewy just right. I love how it feels on my face. It also has a nice and pleasant scent. The packaging is also amazing. It provides good natural coverage while allowing makeup to be natural. It lasts me all and my skin was really happy with it with no troubles.
I love this product! It's so amazing! I'm Asian with NC25, and I took the Shade 21 which matches me perfectly. I usually put on a layer of my Clinique liquid foundation first, then I use this to make another layer. And it smells good! It gives me the feeling of having a facial but make-up wise. It gives me a dewy finish and glides on my face smoothly. I really love the feeling of this BB cream and also the sponge.
It's pretty pricey, I have to say. The price in my country is about RM145 (approx. $45), but I got it for a discounted price with their Laneige Club voucher at about RM120 (approx. $37) which is a steal! I live in an all year summer and humid country, so I just had to touch up once or at most, twice a day.
For sunny Singapore, the promise of sweat-proof, sunscreen protection and long-wearing is always welcomed. I have light-to-medium and warm skintone, oily/combination, with uneven skin tone and prone to occasional breakouts and I am using Shade 31 Brown Beige. The packaging is bulky and the sponge that you apply the BB cream onto your face can get a little messy, but the effect once the product gets applied makes it all worth it. I prefer to set with a thin layer of powder as I tend to shine easily. I have already repurchased, although it costs about S$59 (a little pricey in my opinion).
bulky packaging, but relatively cheap as you get a refill with purchase (but it's not like you can get EVERY LAST DROP out of the sponge... so... i guess not so cheap after all lol
didn't like the texture of it but i prefer a matt finish and this definitely wasn't. my skin felt really sticky afterwards and im not sure if this is the 'dewy' finish??
the applicator was awkward to use (feels like wetsuit material) and because you have to RUB it over your skin to apply it, it really highlights dry patches/flaky skin
however, it does have good coverage, but i gave up after 2 weeks. sadly, i really didn't like it, and no it didn't feel 'cooling' either.
Update: I went to the counter to try Shade 13 and it is an almost perfect match for my NC15 skin. Disappeared when I applied it to my jaw, but I didn't apply full face so I don't know if it would work.
I am Asian with NC15 skin, large pores & blackheads on nose, and redness & freckles on my cheeks.
There's a huge marketing campaign for this in my country (Singapore), and after seeing it featured on many blogs, I decided to get it.
I was recommended Shade 21 at Sephora which is SERIOUSLY not my shade. It's way too dark and I initially wanted to get 13, but it was sold out everywhere. And the SA insisted that Shade 21 matched me. So any NC15 girls... try shade 13. I don't know if it will work but I know that 21 does not work.
To cut the long story short, I hate this.
- Good packaging, travel friendly
- Good coverage
- Terrible texture, it feels like spreading a dry oil on my face and it just sits on top of my skin. I look like there is a layer of oil on my skin, it's not a dewy finish at all.
- Feels SO HEAVY on my skin.
- Transfers to clothing/etc easily.
- It accentuated skin unevenness and made my skin look bumpy, especially on forehead and chin areas.
- Looks like "full make up". Good if you want full coverage, but I was looking for an everyday BB foundation, this feels even heavier than my MUFE HD foundation, which is meant for events. Go figure.
- Application with a sponge is meant to be convenient, but actually I take around the same time to apply liquid foundation on my face.
I feel this product is overhyped. I bought it based on rave reviews. But it turns out to be just an average tinted moisturizer.
I have combination skin. Especially oily on forehead and nose. Generally I rarely breakout.
After using this for a week, I find that it's very oily on. And makes me feel like an oil slick after an hour. And I repeatedly have to blot throughout the day. It's supposed to be 'dewy' but I find that it makes me look very oily instead of dewy. Then I got a couple of huge pimples. Probably because of all that oil. It's going to take me a few weeks to recover.
Really regretted buying into all that hype.
I have been using this product everyday in replacement of my tinted moisturizer for a month now. This is such an amazing product that brightens up your skin and gives the effect of a flawless dewy skin. It does not have much coverage... it gives a little bit more coverage than your average tinted moisturizer though. It feels like wearing nothing, smells nice, have SPF50, holds all day long with minimal oil blotting for my combination skin throughout the day. The sponge is wonderful... does not hold in too much product so all the cream goes to your skin and you don't waste the product.
I love this Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion a lot! I don't think I will ever use tinted moisturizer again.
I love this!!!! The coverage is okay... Maybe about 2/5? But it's buildable. it brightens up my face so naturally! And it lasts for soooo long, I can have natural glow on my face for the entire day :D I love it and will definitely repurchase however the price is a little steep at SGD$59 but it comes with a refill :)
