First Look: Maybelline BB Cream

firstlook

Here’s a new section in my blog called First Look. It’s my first impression on a product, right before I start roadtesting a product or while testing and reviewing a product. I will, of course, continue testing the product and of course give updates on it too.

I have been hearing a lot about BB Creams recently and I have to admit that it made me really curious that I researched different types of BB Creams. According to my research, it helps perfect the skin before application of makeup. It’s a sun block, moisturizer and makeup base in one.

Well, I don’t have much problems with my skin, however, I actually started getting some rashes just recently and have already consulted a dermatologist. It actually made me panic a little because my rashes started in my tummy and spread on my back and after a few days, it started getting worse and now I have rashes on my neck. It made me a little scared because I kept thinking it would also start spreading on my face. :/

The BB cream doesn’t really help treat rashes but anyways, I thought that since BB creams are advisable to people who have problematic skin, maybe this is a good time to do a post about my Maybelline BB Cream.



This all-in-one product is a moisturizer, sun block and foundation. It contains 8 healthy minerals for 8 healthy skin results, giving you flawless skin in an instant!

The 8 healthy minerals are: copper, zinc, magnesium, sodium, titanium and 3 iron oxides.

Maybelline says:
Moisturizes like skin care- oil-free formula keeps skin hydrated for up to 24 hours.
Protects like sun block- SPF26/PA++ protects against harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Covers like a foundation- hides flaws and imperfections without feeling heavy on the skin.


I have been using this BB cream for a few days now and so far so good. It has only one shade but it is easily absorbed by the skin. Plus it actually blends nicely on the skin. However, it gives light coverage.

What I’ve noticed since the time that I used it is that it gives smooth coverage and helps even out my skin tone. I still use my powder foundation if I need coverage but the foundation especially looks more radiant. I will be showing a photo of myself using the Maybelline BB Cream next time and I’ll update you on what happens or improvements I see. But so far, it proves to be a good and healthy alternative to “just moisturizers”. I apply the BB Cream on top of my Skin Hour Mattifying Day Cream.

I didn't know that BB Creams are only bases! =))

Actually it isn't. It's already foundation. However, I feel that this particular BB cream has light coverage. So if more coverage is needed, you can set it with powder foundie.
