Jasmine Water BB Cream SPF 30 PA++
4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 years ago

One of the lighter BB creams out there, with an unusual greyish pinky tone. However, it has an impressive coverage level especially for a BB cream - medium to full coverage, and can also serve as a concealer over mild discolouration - a pink mark from a healed pimple, as an example. The finish is very dewy, in keeping with Korean trends - this sadly does not flatter my oily skin. It's difficult to properly discern its wear time as I always look so shiny, and I'm unsure whether it's down to the finish or if the formula sends my sebaceous glands into overdrive. Unfortunately for me, it caused a lot of issues with clogged pores, primarily closed comedones with some blackheads peppered around. When I'd stop using this, my skin would improve, and retrying this brought on comedonal acne with every use. As you might imagine, I ditched this and never looked back. Completely unsuitable for combination and oily skin types.

I've been using this almost every day for about 5 years. They have reformulated it and it's not as good as it used to be, so this may be the end of the road. It comes in one color, which is ghostly, like me (N1N in ELDW), so I'm always happy to have a color match, and I find the formula to be lightly hydrating. It doesn't cling to dry spots and the last power is good for a BB cream. The real selling point here used to be that the coverage was incredible, with a natural, skin-like finish, but the new version is shinier and sheerer, and while it's wearable, it's not the HG it used to be. My skin is sensitive and reactive and I have never had an issue with this product, new version or old version. It's best applied with fingers, and the packaging is a durable squeeze tube. If you like the Korean style shiny skin, you might love the new version of this product. I like it, but I'm not sure if I like it enough to continue buying it instead of searching for something else.

skin: combination to oily, few acne marks from hormonal imbalance I'm on my 2nd tube and loving this bb cream more than ever. I think there's only one shade and it's bit light for my n23 skin but I love that it adjust and blend so well in my skin once it sets. It has creamy consistency so it's easy to apply. Coverage is light to meduim, it doesn't totally cover my acne marks but it's okay it looks more natural that way perfect for daily wear. Finish is not dewy but glowing! I finish it with powder as I prefer matte and it last longer than without the powder, prolly around 6-7 hours. I start to oil around 3-4 hrs but blotting does not mess with this BB like others do. Smell doesn't bother me at all. Price is worth the product. And with daily use it last around 5-6 months. Be careful not to layer this with thick/sticky sunscreen, looks horrible in 2-3hrs. I'm using biore watery sunscreen while using this BB cream and my skin looks amazing.
