Pros: it gives nice, light coverage, easily blendable, lasts quite well throughout the day
Cons: I'm not sure it really lives up to its skincare claims
I think it's a great product but I probably wouldn't buy it again because I have other foundations and bb creams I want to try.
A great buy for anyone whose looking for an inexpensive bb cream
Packaging - The packaging is fabulous for a bb cream, the body of the tube is a soft, black with pink writing on it, very attractive and modern looking. The fact that there is a pump is great on many levels. It's sanitary, you can pump your desired amount and it doesn't spill. The lid was quite spontaneous as it was clear but the only downside is the product tends to make contact with the lid, leaving marks on it.
Application - The application is easily applied with fingers, I tend to stay away from brushes. It smoothes over your skin and glides over anything, doesn't ball up which is good for dry skin (which I occasionally have). I applied moisturises beforehand.
The texture was a bit oily on my normal skin but within a few minutes, the oil seems to just evaporate and die down leaving a dewy finish which I love. The longevity lasts me around 4 hours until it seems to thin down and start to dry out. It does lock in moisture but only for a short while until you have to touch up again.
All in all I'd say this is quite a decent product because of it's sheer coverage and dewy finish. I would definitely buy it again. Close tot he HG bb cream but not nearly. Thanks Chi Chi :)
I've given this product multiple chances but each time I use it I end up wiping it off and going for another brand. I have a few spots and a slightly oily T Zone, overall pretty easy skin to work with. This BB cream clings to dry spots and slides off oily areas. It is so orange, regardless of whether I use it on its own, with primer, setting powder etc. there is no way I can work with this colour - and I have quite tan skin. It has barely any coverage, no more than a tinted moisturizer would. It's quite expensive for a BB cream but the worst I've tried by far. The packaging makes no sense - it's in a squeeze tube yet it comes with a pump so you can't get the leftover product out when it's nearly empty. I won't bother using this again, it will be going in the trash.
This is a first impression review. This BB cream although comes in great packaging with a "as much as you need" pump dispenser, the box gives off the impression of a much larger tube, though it is possible the box was made larger to be able to put all the information about the Chi Chi BB cream on the outside. The BB cream is a really nice colour and gives exactly the amount of coverage I expected. It doesnt set sticky, more of a dewy finish and I really liked how it minimized some of my slight red scarring which I find some tinted moisturisers completely fail to do. I cant wait to wear this in summer instead of my usual heavier foundation!
Wow. What a find. My favourite bb by far!! Whack a bit of moisturiser or primer underneath for a bit of slip & you have a winner. SPF 30.
I use Light, but also a bit of Medium. It looks glowy & lovely when I applied. It's not overly thick, which I love. I don't need concealer or powder with this. Too easy!
50g is $22 in Aus. Bargain.
Loving this BB cream at the moment! The consistency isn't too watery or thick and it applies on nicely giving a beautiful dewy, glow. The colour for me Medium Tan just enhances my skin tone! The bb cream evens out my skin and leaves it brighter. It contains SPF aswell. Down sides are that this tends to 'stick' or bring out your dry spots more. It can highlight the lines (smiling lines) you may have and the longevity isn't brilliant. There's a slight scent as well but I don't mind it. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to people with dry skin
This applies smoothly but I feel the colour is a bit dark for me (but light is too light). It has a high SPF. The texture feels a bit thick but thins out when it goes on the skin and covers minor blemishes (I use my fingers to apply). I combine it with Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Spot Control Base in Ivory and this lightens it enough so it brightens my skin. The packaging is a pump on a tube so you don't waste product, although it does seem to get a bit all over the inside of the cap. The price is good, considering how it applies, covers and also has an SPF (AUD 19). A little goes a long way! I bought a 2nd tube in case they decide to discontinue it!!
