Review: Careline BB Cream (Whitening)
Okay. Let's go to the review. You would know by now that I get super excited featuring the newest makeup products that are locally available.One of the cheapest BB Cream in the local market is the Careline Whitening BB Cream. This one offers three shades: Nude, Fresh and Natural (in their respective order of shades Light-Dark). The first peculiar thing I noticed from this BB Cream is the perfume scent. My college friends would call it "parishioner" scent or lola's Chanel No. 5. I find it strong and stays on the skin unless you completely set it with powder. The shade selection is ok. The range can fit fair skin to medium ones but those that belong to the extreme end of the spectrum will not (e.g. those that are too fair or those that have deeper skin tones than NC40 perhaps). The consistency is creamy and blendable but this settles and dries quickly. I was afraid that it might look too blotchy on my dry skin but amazingly it did a good job of evening out my skin. After drying, this settles on my face like second skin. This has a semi matte finish. It feels lightweight and lasts on my face longer than I expected. Whenever I use this BB Cream, I just do minimal touch ups.
It took me a while to do this review because I honestly have mixed feelings on this product. It is ok but I will not repurchase it even if it only costs 120 pesos. I am unsure of this product as I think Careline is just going with the BB Cream trend. I also think that a true BB Cream has more benefits other than those of a normal foundation like sun protection, anti aging properties, etc. but this BB cream does not promise any benefits except whitening which I am doubtful of.
Have you tried thsi BB Cream?
