Recently, many beauty brands have been concurrently introducing BB creams to their brands and I’m glad to receive a couple of them, Philosophy “Be Your Best” Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 30 PA+++ is one of them.
Are you familiar with beauty brand named Philosophy? Well, Philosophy was founded in USA in 1996 and it is a brand that approaches personal care from a skin care point of view, while celebrating the beauty of the human spirit. Some of the well-known Philosophy products include Hope In A Jar, The Microdelivery Peel and Purity Made Simple.
Many weeks back, I’ve have received 2 shades of the “Be Your Best” Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 30 PA+++ and a bottle of the “Field Of Flowers” Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath.
This “Field Of Flowers” Magnolia Blossom Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath, a three-in-one cleansing product, smells really good. The scent has an uplifting, refreshing and rejuvenating effect!
BB, stands for blemish balm, is designed to give skin a flawless coverage while offering skincare benefits. Thanks to its duo functions, in Asia, 26% of the asian makeup business now comes from b.b. creams.
“Be Your Best” Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 30 PA+++ helps perfect skin by covering imperfections, redness, pores and dark spots while it unifies complexion and brightens skin with an ultra-natural, barely-there feather-light veil. ”Be Your Best” can either be used alone like a foundation or acts as a perfect primer and can be applied under the natural tone foundation for a smooth and luminous complexion. It provides sun protection against UVB and UVA rays with PA+++.
“Be Your Best” BB cream has various benefits as follows :
- zero default finish
- anti-dark spots
- 24 hours hydration
- SPF 30 PA+++
Lightening & anti-aging properties
“Be Your Best” is formulated with lightening properties such as glycyrrhiza glabra root extract and Vitamin C derivative to help reduce melanin production and brighten up the skin. “Be Your Best” is also formulated with Ascorbic Acid derivative, an antioxidant, that helps increase collagen production and fibroblasts proliferation.
“Be Your Best” Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 30 PA+++ is available in two shades – 01 light and 02 medium. It has a light consistency which feels a little powdery on skin upon application.
I have used shade No. 01 Light on right half of my face. The light matte texture doesn’t glide on the skin easily and I find it a challenge to apply it especially on my lower eye areas as the BB cream feels a little powdery dry on my skin. The BB cream gives a natural and sheer coverage, is as though I have no makeup on.
Upon full application on my entire face, the BB cream gives a semi-matte, even-toned complexion. The finish looks natural and sheer. My skin doesn’t turn oily nor oxidize after few hours upon application. This BB cream is pretty long lasting.
That’s all for today, thanks for reading! See ya soon!
