Nanoce BB Moist Cream
2.0
Created with Sketch.

7 years ago

This BB cream helped sustain the worst breakout I've ever had in my life. No foundation/BB cream had ever broken me out before, so I didn't think this could be causing it until I ran out one day and the next few days, no new pimples (after 3 horrific months of breakouts every day)! I had an initial breakout most likely because of messed up sleeping habits which probably would've gone away if I hadn't piled on this BB cream every single day, further inflaming my pimples and clogging my pores. It's a bummer because this has great coverage and I loved that it didn't make my face look pink or orange, like most western foundations do. It did make my face feel pretty sticky/oily throughout the day though. I would apply it in the morning and it felt like it never really set, transferring everywhere and even coming off on my hands sometimes when I touched my face--and I don't even have oily skin, so I wouldn't recommend this for those with any sort of oily/combination skin. Oh well, live and let learn.

This is a Japanese bb cream that I bought for around $26, almost $30 with tax. There are two shades available and I got the lighter one (I'm NC20, MUFE HD 117, yellow undertones). It is a bit light but I love that it has a yellow undertone. It's perfect because it's not a harsh, darkish, ugly yellow which you see a lot in Western foundations, but a very light yellow that's just beautiful. The consistency is creamy, not thick. It blends in beautifully and leaves a rather dewy finish. One thing I have to mention is that the finish is not as flawless and smooth as I have seen with my Korean bb creams or Western foundations. It's kind of hard to explain, but I wish the finish was a lot better. It's just not that beautiful. I never notice lacking finishes with foundations or bb creams, so I think it's telling that I notice something is a bit off with this product. Another thing is that this bb cream never really dries down. It's always a bit wet on my skin, which gives it a constant dewy look. I don't dislike this, and I can't say if it's a general issue or due to my oily skin. (I'll update this review after trying the bb cream with my mattifying sunscreen.) Coverage is good but I personally don't see it as medium. I'd say you can go from sheer to light. I suppose you could pack this one and get to medium, but I only see it going to light-medium. As with most bb creams, this makes your make-up look really natural. If you use more than a sheer layer, just give it a bit to settle in and you'll see it looks pretty natural. Oil-control is nonexistent and lasting-power is just okay. I can't really see it going all day even with powder, but then again, I do have oily skin.

This was my go-to BB cream for about a year - I then bought the same product in the Sorbet version but this is better. Sorbet is an airbrush spray style, which is a bit messy and sorta scares me when I do it. This is a creme, you squeeze it out of the tube. For me it is a winter colour (I'm about NC25-30-35) and has a nice warm yellow tone which is perfect for my asian skin. No grey cast and you don't have to wait for oxidisation like with most pale BB creams. This won't really oxidise anyway. I have tried many BB creams, all of them from asia (except for the Garnier oil-free which I bought today) and I bought this because its a slightly darker tone and also a yellow base. The tube lasted me about 8 mths. The coverage is full but you can sheer it out. This works perfectly mixed with either moisturiser or sunscreen (I mix it with Invisible Zinc) for sheerer coverage, and the SPF level isn't specified. If you are looking for a good coverage BB cream, this is it! Less is more as a little goes a long way. It naturally has a satin matte finish, but when mixed with other products that changes. What I like best about it is that it doesn't emphasise pores, it covers them. I also get a long day out of it, and it doesn't turn into an oil slick! All in all, definitely a repurchase, I aim to have some of this on hand every winter. p.s. this is a bit more pricey than other BB creams, perhaps cheaper in Japan but i bought this in HK and it wasn't that cheap. More about me: Asian normal skin - tending towards combination in summer Was acne-prone for years Foundation preference is to look as yellow as possible, absolutely nil pink MAC NC-30, Shiseido O60, BeneFit Champagne, Bobbi Brown #4, MUFE Sand/Desert EDIT 2016: this is now avail from Amazon!
