It's been awhile since I have updated my blog. The Holy Month of Ramadhan is being observed by millions of Muslims around the world including me :) I really had no time to update my blog since I have to sleep early in order for me to wake up at least 3 in the morning. I don't also have time at work since my work is piling up :( Well not today! hehehe!
I've been using bb creams for more than a year now. Yes I already did join the bb cream bandwagon. Finding the right one that perfectly suits your skin color, able to hide some skin problems and doesn't add up to that problem is definitely not easy. It's a try and test situation all the time. I have tried from different brands but only fell in love with Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream.

This is the best bb cream I have tried so far. Even my sister love this that she had been hooked up with the bb cream mania then. The color looks to be lighter but blends well with my skin upon application. This is one concern with most bb creams since it comes in one or two shades and still in lighter shades. Upon application you'll look too lighter then your skin color (in your neck) but blends after a few minutes. This a problem if I'm in a hurry and I have no time to wait for another few minutes especially when I know I'm gonna be late for work. But with this bb cream blending issues is much appreciated ;) I didn't get any pimple problem while using this. Though there were bumps but I can't blame it because it was more on hormonal issues (menstruation period = new bumps). It didn't also help in aggravating the problem. I like how it helps in covering up some skin issues of mine like my pore size and acne marks but not totally cover it up. But I can understand this since most bb creams have really light coverage and I have no plan of using a foundation because I find it more heavy on my skin. Though you can apply more for more heavy cover and I find it doesn't cake up. I find this to be on above average with regards to oiliness. But a simple retouch of my powder, I'm good to go :) The only downside on this is it's lack of SPF. A lot of bb creams in the market have at least an SPF 15 which can be a plus factor. But it's not a major issue since I always put on sunblock before my bb cream. I like the pump-type packaging which can be hygienic but you still need to clean the tip because it can leave some marks on the cap. I bought this on sale at around Php 600 and it last long :) I'm almost done using this and yes I did bought a back up but until now I haven't received it :( This is not locally available. I got mine from TLC Shop as a pre-order. Though they sometimes do have stocks but they more prefer pre-orders.
I consider bb creams more as make-up rather then skin care since you still need to remove that at the end of the day. With regards to helping in some skin issues, I cannot attest to it eventhough I've been using bb creams for more than a year now. Some bb creams could give a bad reaction while others don't. I'm happy not a single bb cream I've tried gave me any negative reaction.
Have you already join the bb cream mania? Still on the look for the best bb cream? I'm still on the look but hope this will help you :)
