Beauty: Erborian – BB crème

Posted on Updated on

During warm summer days, I don’t like to wear a lot of make-up and especially foundation can feel too much. So I went looking for an alternative and I bought these two products…

  • Estée Lauder Daywear Sheer Tint Release Moisturizer (of which you could read my thoughts in last week’s post
  • Erborian BB Crème

Time now to reveal my thoughts on the infamous BB crème!

Last week you could read that I was not overall satisfied with the Estée Lauder creme. Of course this is only a tinted daycreme and not a BB, so perhaps I shouldn’t compare these two products as they have a different purpose. But since I have bought them both as a replacement for my foundation during warm summer days, I want to give my opininon whether they are sufficient for me or not…

The promises

Apparantly the BB of Erborian is a 5-in-1 product… and I LOOOOOVE multi-use products… but first let’s find out a bit more on the website!

“The true secret of the Korean skin perfection: Enriched with SPF 20, BB CRÈME AU GINSENG transforms the appearance of your skin with a velvety, ultra-soft finish. BB CRÈME AU GINSENG Doré is a darker shade; contains an association of traditional herbs, used in Asia for ages.

Our break-through high-tech formulation helps:
1. Evens out and mattifies the complexion
2. Moisturise and “plump” the skin
3. Refine skin’s texture
4. Reduce the appearance of blemishes.
5. Give a non-oily, velvety finish. Your skin is visibly softer, smooth and beautiful with a silky feel, just like “baby skin”.”

Now this sounds almost too good to be true… let’s hope it can live up to its promises!

This BB blends in really well! Perfect colour for my skin 🙂

Pros

  • SPF 20
  • Feels comfortable on my skin, even when I am sweating!
  • Evens out my complexion and blends in very well.
  • My skin feels hydrated and not greasy.
  • Comes in several shades: as my skin was already a bit tanned, ‘doré’ was the best shade for me. When I’m a bit paler again, I will have to buy another shade however.
  • Quite economical in use.
  • Can be used without serum and daycream, but I like to use these products first and then apply the BB. On hot days however, I skip the first two steps as I just don’t want to wear all those layers on my face!
  • Perfect for those ‘I don’t wear a lot of make-up’-days!

Cons

  • None that I can think of.

Conclusion

This BB is definitely something… I could even wear it in winter I guess without missing  my foundation!

No doubt that this one is the better alternative for my foundation… but I want to emphasize once again, that this is a BB whereas the Estée Lauder one is a tinted daycream, which of course has a different purpose/use.

Love, Kathleen

      This really is a very good product Lise, you should try it! Erborian is a Korean brand which is sold worldwide, so you should find it. They don’t sell it in drugstores, but in a cosmetic store like Sephora. Love, Kathleen

      Het is idd een fijne crème. Ik heb ook de CC en die is ook heel goed. Maar ik verkies dan toch de bb! Groetjes Kathleen

      You haven’t?? It’s quite well-known in Belgium, thought it would be in Holland as well… It’s not very cheap, but I really like this BB!! To be recommended 😉 have a lovely Monday. Kathleen x
