This parcel greeted me when i woke up on a cold Saturday morning!
Thank you Thesamplestore (TSS) for giving me this opportunity to review the three Blemish Balm (BB cream) from Bio-essence.
Here’s a closed up photo of the three types of BB cream which i will be reviewing in three different post
Now i will provide a overview of the Bio-essence BB Cream Series which were sent to me (Left to Right)
(L) Bio Platinum BB cream: Whitening
(M) Aqua BB Cream: Moisture/Hydration
(R) Bio Multi-effect BB Cream: Coverage (Will be covered in this post)
Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream
This BB cream is a multi-effect BB cream (yes, all in ONE) which provides the following eight benefits:
(Its special ‘skin pampering’ ingredients includes Bio Energy Fluid, Ginkgo Biloba extract, Ginseng and Angelica)
1) Conceal (strongest coverage out of the 3 bb creams)
2) Sun Block (SPF 25 coverage)
3) Skin Repair
6) Oil control
7) Skin whitening
8) Reduces Wrinkles and Lines
I’m someone who likes sheer foundation/BB cream so this BB cream is quite thick IMO but its concealing power is really good (you can read about the small experiment which i did later). Despite being thick, i find that this BB cream is very easy to blend which makes application a breeze. Unlike some BB cream which is thick and you will eventually end up with very uneven make up because it is so hard to spread it over your face. It doesn’t feels heavy on the skin once absorbed and it blends into my skin (You don’t actually see two tones between my face and neck). There is a slight shine but it can be covered up with a layer of loose powder.. Btw, i am using Chanel 50 Poudre so this product will definitely be suitable for most Asian ladies.
One tip: To achieve a optimal and even application, pat the BB Cream gently on the face (try not to spreading it so that the product will be more evenly blend). You can also apply the BB cream in the same manner onto your neck..
The concealing power of this BB cream is really superb. In a survey done by HK Fashion & Beauty Magazine, the Bio Multi Effect BB Cream emerge as the winner among 6 other competitors BB cream which adheres most closely to the skin for flawless coverage.
Let’s put the cream to the test! When i applied it onto an orange, the concealing power of the BB Cream can cover up its black pockmarks..
Now, see my before and after picture
I don’t have to put any concealer.. Just the BB cream alone can cover up my post acne scars! Whooo! 🙂
I have oily skin so by mid day my face will be oily. The oil control for this cream is very good as only my nose is oily during mid day.. My make up is very intact and natural still after lesson at 10.30pm (I applied the BB cream at 7.30am)..
Overall Rating: 3.5 / 5 (The BB cream will be good for people who wants a good coverage but i will prefer a sheer BB cream)
