DISCLAIMER: Unbiased review for your reference. I have smooth skin but I’m not spared from pores on my cheeks, redness around my nose and appearance of veins. Also, I have combination skin; I get oily on my t-zone area. For the lipstick I love wearing semi to matte formulation and with that, I have high tolerance with matte lipstick. Also, I always exfoliate my lips.Better check your skin types and preferences DO NOT put the blame if certain product doesn’t work the same.
Finally, after months of wanting I gave in. It’s back on stock and with the new shade in beige. I love using sansan cosmetics it never fail me. I’ve been eyeing for the matte foundation but sad to say the darkest shade they have has an orange tone to it. Hindi bagay sakin. The first one is really light then the second one has a pinkish tone. Medyo maputi pa din sakin so I just hope they would add a shade in between, something that is suitable for morena and has a yellow undertone.
Ingredients and Directions for use:
The packaging is very simple and informative.I love that it comes in a pumping tube to dispense the cream easily. It’s not messy although it seems that the amount of product inside is not 30ml. Parang ang onti kasi. I use it twice and I had to shake it well and wait for the product to come out even though I already pump it. Parang ang bilis maubos I have to restock soon.
It claims to:
- Lightens dark spots – true as if your face looks lively.
- Nourishes Skin – my face looks fresh
- Protects skin from sun damage – I guess? Because of the SPF.
- With antioxidant – to help your skin breath without clogging the pores.
Net content: 30ml
Going back, the texture of this product is not too thick and not too liquidy. A little goes a long way. It definitely covers the redness around my nose, the dark spots under my eyes and the visible veins around my cheeks. It can also cover even the major pimples and blemishes. It has a great coverage knowing it’s just a bb cream. Ang galing! But note that this has a little dewy effect so better use a matte powder or a mineral loose powder on top to make it last longer and to cover the moist on your face. I don’t think it is good for oily skin since it is a bb cream this will not last the whole day on you. This is good for quick errands though. It has Vitamins ACE and SPF 43 which makes it really pop.
Application: Very easy to blend using fingers,sponge or brush.
Coverage: Medium to Full. On my case since I don’t have any acne or major blemishes it provides a FULL coverage. I don’t need to use a concealer since this is very buildable without looking cakey/ashey.
