BB Creams. They have been around for quite a few years now and I was one who went and go gaga when it first came out. It’s sad that the one who posted the before and after pics together with skin improvement can’t be found anymore. She used Skinfood Gingko Green BB Cream and the results were AMAZING. Her face went from lumpy to flawless in 7 months. It’s a long time but the improvement and results were really drastic.
I’m nearing to finish Dr G BB Brightening Balm and it quickly turned into one of my favorites. Here’s why:
I like how it leaves a really glowing and dewy finish even after you set this up with powder. The sales lady also mentioned this BB cream does not oxidize throughout the day, unlike others that turn orange when we get oily. This is very moisturizing and makes the skin feel soft to touch without feeling greasy or sticky. BUT it doesn’t control oil. So it’s either you set it with a good finishing powder, or use a mattifying base beforehand. I don’t use it because I have dry patchy skin sometimes, so I will just prefer touching up with a few blots here and there mid-day.
As for its whitening and anti-wrinkle effect. I couldn’t say because I use a different BB cream each time I finish a tube. The active ingredient in Dr. G brightening balm is Arbutin for whitening.
It lasts a good 6 hours, but at the end of the day, the skin still looks healthy and glowing, compared to not using this BB cream. I’ve been using it daily and it hasn’t broken me out. It has a soapy fragrance, very mild. Coverage wise, it has light to medium coverage but can be built up without being cakey. It has a natural shade that can blend with both yellow or pink based skin and not look ashy or gray. Just nice and dewy.
Did you know this BB cream was specifically made for a person who requested something to help with healing of his scars while covering it up.
