I first got know of this amazing product is actually from Taiwan Beauty Show. From then on, I am amazed by their results. I have been using BB cream in general for about 2 years. Due to my work, I do not need to makeup to work but I do like to have a better natural look. I will usually used BB cream to cover my face from breakouts as well as used it as my sunscreen.
So what is BB cream?
BB Creams (Blemish Balm Cream) originated from Germany (I used to think it originated from Korea) and was initially prescribed by dermatologists to patients who had undergone laser skin treatments to soothe redness and cater to their sensitive skin. The trend of using BB Creams caught on in Korea when celebrities started using them to create a natural and dewy finish. The use of this multi-purpose wonder-cream is a sizzling-hot beauty trend, particularly in Asia, and has helped many girls streamline their beauty regime.
Like I mentioned earlier, I used BB cream as my sunscreen + “pimple cream” + foundation. However, nowadays BB cream do not only have effects or function like these. BB Creams now have multiple skincare benefits which include whitening, sun protection, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, moisturizing while providing coverage for the skin. It gives a natural and flawless finish, similar to how Korean celebrities look.
With its multiple functionality and convenience, women can now cut down on her makeup application time without compromising on looking good. It only takes 1 product and a mere 10 minutes to put on moisturizer, sun screen and foundation all at once. Grooming gets much easier with the use of BB Creams.
Bio Essence have release 3 types of BB creams to cater to different people and usage. Aqua BB Cream (Blue one) for moisture, Bio Platinum BB cream (Sliver one) for whitening and the Bio Multi-effect BB Cream (Purple One) for Coverage.
Today review will be on Bio Essence Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream. I call it the 8-in-1 cream with SPF 25 coverage. It has 8 benefit in 1 bottles. (Concealer, Sun Block, Skin Repair, Moisturizer, Nourishment, Oil Control, Skin Whitening and Reduce Wrinkle and fine lines). I personally find that this BB cream contains the best coverage in the Bio Essence range of BB cream. It is a excellent makeup base and foundation for me.
In a survey done by HK Fashion and Beauty Magazine among 6 other competitive BB Creams, the Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream came up tops in terms of being the BB Cream that adheres most closely to the skin for flawless coverage.
So now is testing on my face. I have been using this for a few days. I feel that Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream is more towards a pink shade. It gives me natural radiant and glow on my face without looking too fair. Since it has very good coverage and shade on my skin, I simply used it after my toner and as my moisturizer, sun block and foundation for day use.
Directions as stated in their box:
At the final step of your skincare regime, squeeze an adequate amount of content and apply evenly on your face. Pat lightly to avoid uneven patches.
Application tips from Beatrice
In order to let you compare the BB cream, I applied half of my face with BB cream and the other half was left without anything.
Comparision with the BB cream. This Bio Multi-Effect 8 in 1 BB Cream has the best coverage. For ladies that do not makeup and want a flawless skin. I strongly recommend this BB cream. I really like this for my daily use without any makeup.
