Hey everyone! Ever since my review on the DiorSkin Nude BB Cream, I was now on a hunt for something better and came up on this below. I actually tried the Lioele’s Water Drop BB Cream last year once for a tutorial and never really thought much about it. Then recently, I decided to try it again and now have been using it more recently and loving it.
BB creams if you don’t know stand for blemish balm cream, which are meant to provide moisture, protection, coverage and even improve the texture of the skin. Originally created in Germany, bb creams were meant for laser surgery patients to help them heal during recovery. And now for many years, these creams have been the craze all over Asia and for good reasons too. The only disadvantage however is that the creams typically come in one or two colors, so harder for those who have darker skin tones.
I typically have an NC 25 skin tone, so using this cream was a good match after blending. What intrigued me about this particular cream itself is the water-based formula that contains various plant extracts to keep skin moist, healthy and provide a natural color. It has a slight watery texture, not as thick as the past bb creams that I’ve used, not counting the DiorSkin Nude BB Cream. Because of its water-based formula, you may need to apply at least two layers for full coverage. I typically apply just one and finish off with a powder to get the even skin tone that I wanted.
I didn’t feel the coolness that the product claims, but I definitely felt that the product provided enough moisture to last me through the day. My face did not feel sticky nor heavy. The best thing? My skin didn’t react badly to the product, which I typically get when using Asian BB Creams, so a plus for those of you who may have sensitive skin.
Not to mention a few other benefits below that bb creams provide such as being a:
- Skin Treatment
- BB cream with SPF 27 PA++
- Product that simultaneously block both UVA and UVB
I am glad that I decided to try this product again, because it’s been my go-to item for summer and probably going into Fall and Winter. Feel free to read my past reviews on other bb creams here (Missha BB Cream, L’egere White Multi BB Cream, and L’egere Double White O2 BB Cream )
