Beauty Product Reviews

As someone whose lips manage to dry out quite easily, I tend to hoard lip balms like crazy. I bought this on a whim actually, and thankfully was pleased with it! It's not the most moisturizing balm out there, especially if you have very dry lips, and I still prefer my Nivea lip balms because they're amazing at keeping my lips super hydrated; but as long as you exfoliate regularly and use this, it should work well for you!

I love the cooling effect of the peppermint, probably my favorite feature from this product. The packaging also makes it super convenient to bring around as it's small enough for me to slip into my pocket and reach for it whenever I need it. Some people don't like the fact that you have to use your fingers to apply it, but I personally don't mind. As long as I retouch this every so often throughout the day, it keeps my lips looking naturally healthy and hydrated! I also apply it to the inner corners of my mouth which sometimes dry out as well, and it does the job there too.

Though I've heard a lot of good things about this particular BB cream, I got a sample tube of it some time last year because I wanted to make sure I liked it and it worked for me before I splurged on buying the full-sized bottle. Authentic Korean cosmetics, especially from popular brands, are sadly not the most affordable here.

I love the packaging of this, first of all. Hot pink is always an eye-catching choice! I also like how it's sturdy and it dispenses just the right amount of product which you can still control. Not very travel-friendly I don't think, since it can easily leak out, but it's not a major con for me. It's also buildable, which is something I always look for when it comes to foundations and BB creams, especially since I have large pores and blemishes to hide. Coverage is medium, I would say, but again you can always build it up. Not sure why some people say it made them look a little 'grey' or 'ashy' upon application because it certainly didn't for me! On its own, lasting power is average for me as someone with combination skin and who lives in a tropical climate, but nothing a good setting power and setting spray can't fix!

Definitely one of the better BB creams I've tried, without a doubt. But now I'm interested in trying out the "SUPER PLUS TRIPLE FUNCTION BB VITAL CREAM SPF50 PA+++" variation.
