I’m pretty much a BB cream newbie. I’ve only tried Etude House Magic BB Cream (I should do a review on this one since I use it regularly) and I find it pretty good although lacking in coverage. This review is not about that particular BB cream. It’s about the sample BB cream I won from Lizz Buenaventura.
For those not in the know, BB creams aka blemish balms are the latest craze in Asia. They are multi-functional skincare products which can moisturize, soothe, heal, cover and protect the face. Some BB creams offer sun protection and whitening properties too. It is used like a moisturizer but sometimes I just use it as base and then apply foundation over it.
So one of the prizes I won is a sampler of Tony Moly Expert Triple BB Cream. Long name I know. It has whitening, wrinkle care, and SPF 45. I noticed that it’s darker than Etude House’s BB Cream. It’s quite oily too which might further worsen my combination skin which tends to become oilier throughout the day.
As you can see in the photo above, the difference between the right and left sides of my face is dramatic (Please ignore the messy hair). Even my eyes look different. Tony Moly provides fair coverage but I think it’s more suited for those who have dry skin.
I don’t know if there are stores here which sell Tony Moly products but you can try ebay.ph or multiply.com.
