Dr. G BB Cream Review

Anyeong~ 


This is the BB cream that I am using now, it's called Dr. G BB Cream - origin from Korea. This is my second tube which I purchased from SASA during promotion for around RM98.00 for 2 tubes; it's 45ml per tube. During non-promotion it's RM69.00 per tube.

Since I have been using this BB cream quite a while and almost finishing this second tube, I figure I should give this BB a review before I finishing it :P, I will move on to try other BB cream after this since I really like experimenting varieties of BB Cream out there.

For those who haven't come across this BB, a brief into on this BB cream is one of among many famous BB cream in the market and got SPF 30 PA++, we love sun screen protection don't we. :)



The packing, note on it Asia best seller

RM69.00 per tube at SASA




Picture of Before (left) and After (right) applying the BB cream, notice that the mosquito bite mark and dark spot is less visible after application. Also note the swatch of the BB Cream on the right picture.


My thoughts about this BB Cream:
This BB Cream provide goof coverage for acne scars, dark spots and pigmentation. Dr. G BB only have one shade.This BB is moisturizing and have average oil control, no strong fragrance - in fact I don't really notice any fragrance. 

What I like about this BB Cream:


  • Quite decent coverage on dark spots and acne scars.
  • SPF 30PA++
  • Brighten skin tone
  • Leave skin supple and moist
  • Affordable if compare to Dr. Jart price tag 

What I don't like about this BB Cream:


  • Oil control average


................

Coverage 4/5
I rate the coverage 4/5 as this BB can cover minor flaws on my face.

Oil Control 3/5
Oil control is not so strong, most about 3 hours, anyhow this really depends on your skin type, since I have oily combination skin, without the loose powder or pressed powder touch to set the BB, my face will look oily on the T zone.

Spread-ability 4/5
The texture of the BB cream is  not too thick nor too thin, just nice for me and it's easy to spread. However if too thick it will look too bright for my skin tone.

Finnish 4/5
The finish is dewy on me, since I layer on many other skin care regime before the BB cream.


Overall 4/5
Overall I find this BB cream is good but not the best yet. I will not re-purchase at the moment and still in the hunt to try out more BB cream. My overall rating for this BB Cream is 4/5.

Elianto Natural Mineral Loose Powder Review

Anyeong~

I just bought the Elianto natural mineral loose powder, original priced at RM33.00 now they are having a promo 50% off, so I only paid for RM16.50, go check out their store if you are interested - they are having some promo for some items at the moment. 

They have a few shades and I selected shade number 2, number 1 is the lightest shade they have.

This is the packing look like

Description on the packing

The powder puff included inside

My thoughts about this loose powder:
Check out the ingredients stated on the packing above, contain talc and also corn starch haha... can't believe I put corn starch on my face, ingredients that available in the kitchen - that I use for cooking sometimes. If you have sensitive skin, this might not be suitable for you. Also no fragrant in the ingredients, so no smell whatsoever.  This loose powder gives a matte finishing. 

What I like about this product:
  • Set make up
  • Cheap / affordable 

What I don't like about this product:
  • The powder puff very rough 
  • Oil control so so, need to touch up time to time (this depends on your skin type, I have oily combination skin)
Overall will not re-purchase.


Rating

Coverage 2/5
Very minimum coverage, I have some acne scars on my face which is visible even after putting on BB cream and using this loose powder alone without a good concealer still doesn't do a good coverage, so I rate coverage wise 2/5. 

Oil Control 2/5
This depends on your skin type, I have Oily combination skin type, so oil control wise need touch up once in a while, probably 2-3 hours once.

Spread-ability 4/5
The powder puff is very low quality and rough, not suitable for sensitive skin, anyway if you use good quality make up brush - should be much easier. 

Finnish 4/5 
This depends on what you are looking for. This gives a matte finish, if you are looking for dewy finish - you need to look for those wet-dry cushion powder I think. 


Overall, this product is still value for money if you just paying RM16.50 I don't usually use powder on my face too often because I am worried that it will clog my pores, although many are claiming non-clog, it's better to to use too often as it will lead to skin problems later. basically I will not re-purchase this item again.

O'slee Honey Sugar Mask Review

Sponsored Post


I am very excited to to write this review on O'slee Honey Sugar Mask - sponsored by O'slee, thanks O'slee ! 

(Note: Although this mask is sponsored by O'slee, I am not an affiliate to O'slee and this review is honest opinion based on my own personal experience after using their product.)

If you don't already know O'slee is one of the most famous skin care brands in Hong Kong.  

Product profile:
Name : O'slee Honey Sugar Mask
Price : RM59.90 for 100ml
Made in : Hong Kong
Available at : Guardian outlet, sasa or oslee website click here  


The packing and mask in super cute glass jar :)

Come with free cleansing sponge and mask stick 

Directions on the packing

This mask can be applied on wet skin or dry skin. I think using on wet skin will promote the moisturizing effect and applying on dry skin will promote the exfoliating effect. The cleansing sponge is very useful to help for better cleansing. 

Ingredients

Functions of the mask

Close up on the cute jar

It is encouraged to used up the mask within 9 months after opening it and don't let water enter the mask or it will ruin the mask


Sealed to ensure freshness

A yummy skin meal... it smells so delicious  - (caution: not food, do not eat ;) haha...)

On wet skin the mask melts, on dry skin it works on exfoliating dead skins

Demo on my left hand, before skin look dull after used skin is more brighter

My thoughts:
The mask smells so delicious, it smell like brown sugar and honey. This mask can be used on wet or dry skin, I prefer to use it on wet skin as it can maximize the benefits of moisturizing my skin. I used it on my wet face and gently massage the mask in circular motion and the mask melts after a few seconds and I washed it off after 10 minutes. Below are my comments on each functions per say of the mask:

Peeling
Not totally sure if it does peeling, but the mask does make my skin brighter.

Whitening
Yes, skin look brighter after use.

Moisturizing
Agree - my skin feel supple and moist after used.

Removes blackheads
Not working on visible blackheads.

Refines pores
Pores still visible, made not much difference.

Oil control
Skin feels clean after towel dried.

What I like about this mask:
  • Cute packing
  • Skin feels moist and supple after used
  • Brighten skin
  • Exfoliate dead skins
  • Smell delicious
  • Come with free cleansing sponge and spoon


What I don't like about this mask:
  • Left oily film layer on skin due to oil based ingredients, but it does goodness to skin


My rating for this product is 4 out of 5 stars. Overall happy with the result. :)

Skin79 BB Cream Review

Anyeong~

Here is a review on Skin79 BB Cream, I used this BB cream some times ago but after finishing one bottle, I move on with other brands because I am still looking for a perfect BB cream to in love with. Anyway, just for the record and my own note, here is a review on Skin79 BB cream.

Skin79 brand is from Korea, they have many types of BB cream that you can choose from (check out their website here), when I walked into their store, I am so confused which one to choose, finally I chosen the Advance Triple Functions BB Cream (dark red color bottle) - main function whitening, wrinkle improvement and UV interception SPF25 PA++. Price around RM75-RM90, I can't remember exactly. They now have the mini set of BB cream which you can buy as trial pack, it is available in sasa.com. 

Description

Description on the packing:
The Beblesh Balm has triple functions including making skin firming and radiant through anti-wrinkle and whitening effect as well as protecting skin from UV rays by blocking both UV A and B rays at one time.
Fullerene excellence in in soothing skin protects skin from various harmful environment with MNS complex composed of five vegetables ingredients including lotus extract and cornus officinalis fruit extract making skin texture moisturized and tender by providing skin with moisture and nutrients. 

Direction:

At the last stage of basic skin care, pump proper amount and gently spread it along skin texture.

The packing

Apparently the famous one is the pink color bottle BB Cream called Super BB triple functions which claimed one sold every 10 seconds.

Swatch and first layer on right side

Two layers of BB cream on right side

What I like about this BB Cream:
  • Nice mild scent
  • Moderate coverage
  • SPF 
  • Skin feels moist and tender after used


What I don't like about this BB Cream:
  • Quite pricey - only 40ml, the packing look big actually content only 40ml.
  • Too many BB cream options - this point is general comment (I just wanted to note here that Skin79 has way too many types of BB cream, making consumer confuse of which to choose, even though they develop to suit each skin type, I think they options is way too many. I would prefer they simplified it and make some that will satisfied what main stream consumer is looking for.)


Overall this BB cream is decent but not impressive to me. I am still in the hunt for the best BB cream ever.
