MY BB CREAM

I have not always been into makeup. Until I was 28 years old, I would use only a dab of Johnson’s Baby Powder on my face, especially on the tip of my nose, to get rid of the excess oil.

Fast forward. K-Pop became very popular in most parts of the world. Of all the cosmetics manufactured in Korea and endorsed by their porcelain-skinned K-pop stars, BB cream, a kind of concealer, caught my attention, due to its packaging. Yes, the appearance of a product DOES matter. Haha. I bought the smallest tube available, 30ml., just to test it.

On the front part of the tube, these words are written:
Perfect Cover, Whitening and Anti-wrinkle, SPF50, PA+++. I had to Google the meanings of SPF50 and PA+++.

The first thing that I noticed when I opened the tube was the smell. It smells of fresh nuts and fresh water. I don’t even know exactly how fresh water smells but anyway, the scent of BB cream reminds me of clear springs, mountain breeze, and green meadows. Seriously. Real talk.

Surprisingly, the cream feels so cool on the skin. I don’t know the chemical components of this beauty product but anyway, it leaves the skin feeling fresh (in my case).  I don’t know if this is also the case of other people who have used or who are using this cream.

And yes, it conceals the blemishes on my face. It stays on my skin but it doesn’t give me that weird sticky/oily feeling. I don’t know how many shades there are to choose from; I didn’t ask the seller in the Korean mart. I just pointed to it, she gave it to me, I paid for it, she gave me my change, we both forced a smile and  exchanged “thanks’, and I went away.

BB cream has been in the market for a while, and I know that a lot of people have been using this cream which I have just so recently discovered.

At the rate of 5, 5 being the highest, I’m giving it 4.7.
