I received this BB Cream from a Korean friend. This BB Cream is too light for my skin so I decided to buy a dark foundation in order to create the right match for my skin. I mix the BB Cream with Revlon Photo Ready in a dark shade (I forgot the shade) and it works very well.
This BB Cream is thick, medium to full coverage, and a matte finish. I have not broken out from this. It does seem to make my skin lighter (but not noticeably whiter). Also, you only need a very small amount (mixed with my darker foundation) in order to cover the whole face.
Overall, nice product. If I did not mix this with a dark foundation then this would not work out for me.
I bought this product on ebay for 20,99 USD + free shipping.
I've been using it from the last summer. It has SPF 30+ which helpd me alot during sunny day!
It moisterizes good, and i love how it moisterizes. But i dont know for the long way, will i get break out with this? Or, Does it clog my pores, i have no idea.
For everyday, i use a very little amount ( school days ) and where i live mostly rains. So i decide to add just to keep my skin from dries up.
At first, I thought I finally found my HG LF/BB cream. But after using it for a few months, I've realized that this was the cause of all my clogged pores. I have also started using a cleansing oil which draws all impurities to the surface. When I don't use my bb cream, my acne filled face begins to clear and stay clear. But as soon as I apply bb cream, the next day after I massage off my makeup with my cleansing oil, I can almost immediately see new pimples under the surface.
Consistency is decent; a bit thick but not as thick as some other creams. Color is perfect as it adapts to your skin color after around 2 hours (I'm NC20).
Everything would be good if only it didn't cause clogged pores.
First of all, this bb cream has good coverage. It's not that I slap it on but it is more foundation-like than regular bb creams. My dark circles and slight redness become almost completely invisible.
However, this comes at the price of ashy, unnatural coloured skin. This bb cream is quite grey, which is meant to make the face appear whiter/brighter. I am NC30-35 (winter-summer) - medium complexion with yellow/olive undertones - and you can immediately tell when I have this on due to the colour. And its not like you have other colour options so you are stuck with the greyish cast, which IMHO is a similar effect to the complexions of ahjummas who slather on shiseido that is five shades too light.
Another reason why I stopped its use was because it clogged my pores. I followed my skincare regimen as per usual but suddenly I was breaking out and had little bumps all over my cheeks and jaw. Having abandoned this product my skin is returning to normal but I'll probably be left with some scars.
Long term whitening benefits I cannot comment on as I seldom use this but one of the ingredients listed is arbutin so the product does have legitimate basis for the whitening claim. The SPF 35 would certainly keep you from burning in any case.
Overall the product has very good coverage and probably does whiten in the long term but believe me, it is really not worth it.
nonono. no for me. this thing is extremely thick and has gray tone to it. also its wayyy too oily for me. i had to blot every single hour wearing this. while this has decent coverage, the color is just not right! makes me look sick and ghostlike.
This has AMAZING coverage so you dont need any other makeup, No concealer or powder because this is mattifying. It is very light in color and i think its great for acne skin. But I dont know of any skin care in it?
Among all the BB creams I've used, this is by far the best. It has excellent coverage. It looks natural and doesn't have that ashy grey tone once settled down on the skin. I like its matte texture. No oilies and my skin feels smooth. The shade sits perfectly on my NC20 complexion. The tube is small enough to fit into my cosmetic pouch. I'm happy that I don't have to travel with glass bottles of liquid foundation anymore! It washes off very easily with water and there's no grease or stickiness. I have hyper sensitive skin and this one didn't irritate my skin at all. I use a thin layer of pressed powder on top cause I live in a humid country and I don't like my makeup to melt.
This is one of my most favourite foundations! This foundation can be used alone or as a base from what it says on the packaging. It was made to cover any redness you may have on your face and it really is true to its word! I have some acne scars and redness on my cheeks so when I apply this on, it gives my face a flawless look! I use it alone since the colour seems to match my skin well (for reference I'm NC25) and finish it off with some powder on top. If you think the colour doesn't match your skin, just mix it in with a bit of your regular foundation and that should do the trick. I will definitely be ordering it again.
I purchased this on eBay a week ago for $20.99 and so far it's doing amazing things for my skin. The coverage is on the heavier side for a BB cream, and it means you'll only need a tiny amount each time so the 50ml tube will last a long time. Like most BB creams it has a slightly greyish tint to it, but after a few minutes it adjusts to match my skin tone extremely well. My face looks brighter, smoother, fresh, and almost like porcelain. I feel the application process is important when using this, since it does give more coverage, you don't want to over-apply or it will look caked on and unnatural. The formula blends easily and what I do is dab a bit on my fingers, rub my hands together to warm it up, and gently pat it on - paying special attention to problem areas. I'll also use a tiny bit as concealer on my dark circles and blend it with a small foundation brush. It's a very interesting formula because it does a good job at controlling my oily T-zone, but at the same time it's moisturizing enough that the patchy dry spots on my cheeks are going away. The most amazing thing about this BB cream is that when I washed my face at the end of the day (I use Philosophy's Purity to remove all traces of makeup) the quality of my bare skin felt much improved!!! My skin felt extraordinarily soft and my flaws (blemishes, scars, dry patches, redness) seemed to have been refined! I might be jumping to conclusions a bit since I've only been using this for a few days, and if it suddenly goes downhill I'll be back to edit, but from what I've seen so far it's an awesome product.
Edit: Yep, still love it. My skin has actually been freaking out recently due to stress, humidity, etc. I've been using Dr. Jart to help correct redness (again, using a very thin later) and to provide sun protection as well as calm down my irritated and haggard face, haha. Speeds up healing and fades acne scars. It's wonderful.
I've used this for around a year now, and it's excellent.
The coverage is full, like a heavy-duty foundation, but the results are very natural.
However, if not applied properly, the bb cream can seem cakey, because it is very thick and rich, so you need to make sure to only put on a minimal amount.
If you put too much on, it WILL get oilier faster and look more cakey, so be careful!
But overall, great product.
I don't know if i'll be purchasing it again, because it DOES have a pinkish/ashy tone to it and i'm more of a light beige/yellow undertones, so it does clash quite a bit with my neck (natural skin color) in natural lighting... looks very pink/ashy. But, indoors, it looks fantastic...
I've gotten compliments on my skin while wearing this (of course indoors haha..)
Staying power is okay, depends on how oily you are.
I'm VERY oily, so by the end of the day the stuff is basically smearing if i touch my face-
but, that's without any blotting.
Blot and you will be fine- and it's better than most foundations in many aspects anyway, i've had so many foundations cake disgustingly or just disappear completely from my face.
It does smooth out the face and whatnot, it's a very good product.
I know it's a korean brand- however, because of its pink undertones, I think it'd be best for fair-skinned caucasians.
I probably won't be purchasing again, but that's just because of the color clash- if it came in my exact color, i'd swoon and die of happiness.
Also- the original product from the original Korean site for Dr. Jart is $27 USD, so if you hear anything about it being $14 or anything cheaper than $27, especially on sites like ebay-
it's most likely too good to be true, I suggest you don't get it, you don't know where that's from.
