|I was so excited when thsi came :D|
But anyway, on to the review! This BB cream had no special properties aside from being moisturizing. No SPF, no skin whitening at all. It has a slight, pleasant fragrance to it, and is more liquid than I expected it to be (I had tried my sister's Skinfood BB before, and it had felt pasty to me). It was a bit of a challenge getting the pump started, but I got it going after turning it upside down and slightly squeezing it to get the air out.
This is my face when I started out, with sunblock prior to BB cream application. I dare not leave the house without sunblock, especially since I've been using papaya soap. I know I look terrible, but that's what happens when you leave the house in a rush! I kinda freak myself out with how horrible I look before I comb my hair in the mornings. There really is a world of difference.

As with most, if not all, BB creams it had a whitish cast immediately upon application. I'm not a very fair-skinned person, so the problem of BB creams having a ghastly color was greatly aggravated by my skin tone. It did even out my skin, but you couldn't really tell until it had oxidized about 20-30 minutes later.

This is the makeup I managed to put on during the trip to school. And no, there were barely any stops since we just hop on the freeway. I managed not to mess up my liquid liner ;D
After oxidizing, it started to look much better, despite the fact that I was probably too dark for the shade it came in. And after 14 hours of wear, the only spots it really wore off of was my nose and forehead.

This product is perfect for anybody who likes medium coverage, and is fair skinned. It's also moisturizing, so it helps dry skin as well. I like this product well enough, but I don't like the fact that it doesn't have SPF, and that there's only 35ml, when I can get 50ml (Etude House Bright Fit BB Cream) for about $5 more. It does last a long time, since a little goes a long way. My real problem however is that it doesn't really match my skin tone, and the Bright Fit line has darker shades as well as SPF. So no, I won't be repurchasing it, and I'll be getting Bright Fit next time.
Catch ya'll later
