Yay! Just got DEAR, KLAIRS Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ BB Cream from NattaCosme for review! Although I am an avid user of BB Cream, I've given up buying and trying new BB creams because they are just not very good compare to the current one I am using, not to mention that some which I bought are pretty expensive too! So I'm really happy to receive this parcel from NattaCosme!

Usually, I only put on BB Cream instead of foundation and powder because of my pore problem. Foundation + Powderwill turn out very cakey and very dry hence showing my pores and lines more vividly

Parcels from NattaCosme are always cute! This time around, it is a cute Korean style parcel consisting;
  •  DEAR, KLAIRS Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ BB Cream
  • CERRO QUEEN Natural Emulsion Powder Puff
  • Vintage Bow Hair Claw
  • cute envelope and notes

The DEAR, KLAIRS Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ BB Cream comes in a tube so it's easy to control the output of amount which I need to use. This is actually my first time using a sponge when applying BB cream. Usually, I would just spread a thin layer with one of my finger, slide it on my skin sideways and then gently pat it on to set the cream.

Squeeze some out on to the sponge to give you an idea on the cream condition. The cream is definitely not solid and thick nor is it very liquify and oily. The cream feels light and smooth. Colour wise, it has a little reddish undertone.

Before application

So, how I applied the BB Cream is.. I usually apply more moisturizer or water essence on my face first whenever I am going to apply BB Cream / makeup. This is to create a smoother foundation on my skin (to prevent the caking up) before the start of make up application due to my dry skin condition.

However, due to the light texture of KLAIRS's BB cream, I do not see a need for this. I'm also amazed with the fact that it stays on with very very little oil formation on my skin from day to night which only means one thing; no dryness on face -> no oil emmittance!

As usual, I would squeeze out a fair bit on one of my left finger. Spread it a thinner on my left finger with one of my right finger and then spread a thin layer on my face. I notice some lines formation due to the usage of my finger. This is when CERRO QUEEN Natural Emulsion Powder Puff comes into action. I gently pat the sponge on my skin with a very light pressure to even the cream. This results in a smoother surface formation.

A before and after comparison.

There might not be a very visible difference in skin colour tone between the before and after application because one of the strength of this BB cream is that it blends really well with our skin tone. What you would notice is the evenness of skin tone on the left side in comparison to the uneven skin tone on the right.

As for coverage, the level of coverage is between minimal and moderate. It won't be able to cover obvious acne redness or dark tone eye bags due to lightness of the cream. For these, I would usually pat on some concealer evenly on those spots before balancing the uneven skin tone with a layer of BB cream.

Another comparison of before and after.

It is said that this BB cream...
  • is developed through a unique formula which minimize irritation, catering to troubled and sensitive skins (my skin type)!  
  • has a benefit of whitening / anti-wrinkle care / SPF 40 PA++ sun block.
  • has an additional water tank component of Hyaluronic Acid for deep moisturizing.
  • blends really well with our natural skin tone even with different thickness application which also leads to only one cream for all skin tones!
  • is a supple blemish cream which creates an all day lasting natural look in one step without the hassle of primer / foundation / finishing powder!
After application on both side!

What I like about this BB cream...
  • does not cause dryness of skin hence no oil production by skin throughout the day! (really really like this!)
  • feels light on the skin.
  • blends really well with natural skin tone which leads to even skin tone but not discolouration even with thick application.
I just wish it gives more coverage on my dark eye circles and acne scars. Hehe.. Then I could skip my concealer too!
