Product Review: TheFaceShop Aqua Tinted BB Cream

Hey ya’ll!
I’m back with another BB cream review!
This time its THEFACESHOP Aqua Tinted BB Cream!
The product looks like this:

Please excuse the dirty packaging >.<
Sexy korean back

TheFaceShop claims that this BB cream is:

  • A moisturizing BB cream that contains 70% water that keeps skin fresh, clear, and well-moisturized
  • 70% of this BB cream is water which includes deep ocean water
  • This BB cream glides over skin, leaving the skin feeling cool, refreshed, light and comfortable
  • Contains purslane extract which calms skin and is effective against skin problems
So does it keep up to its claim?
In a nutshell…
YES!But before I go into the review
Here are some pictures to show you how the product looks like:

Beige toned cream
Slightly blended
Fully blended
BB cream without setting powder
With setting powder

Now onto the product review!
The product is packaged in a 12cm squeeze tube
So it is quite easy to carry around
It is quite light as well so there is no problem using it as a travel product

TheFaceShop carries two shades for this BB cream
Which is #1 Light Beige and #2 Natural Beige
The one that I’m using now is #2 Natural Beige and it does adjust to my fair yellow skintone quite well
Again, my MAC shade is NC15 to NC20
It contains SPF20++
Which is considered so-so only for a Malaysian
It does fare well if you spend most of your time in air conditioned areas

This BB cream is good for those who wants a hydrating BB cream
So this product should suit Normal/Combination Dry skin
But I myself find this quite suitable for my Oily/Combination skin!
Just goes to show that a product doesn’t necessarily have to go those with a specific skin type!

I use this BB cream as my moisturiser and base
I didn’t notice any breakout until now and it does hydrate my skin
However I find that the oil control for this isn’t good
It’s a hydrating BB cream >.<

It does contain a fragrance
So for those who are sensitive to fragrance I recommend you to try smelling it in stores first before buying
I do not encourage buying this online though
The fragrance is a florally fresh smell that dissipates after awhile
So there’s no problem there
But I do wish that they make a fragrance for it because I want to buy it XD

It does improve my skin over time
Also I notice a calming effect on my skin when I applied it
Its quite refreshing as well
It is very easy to blend
I do notice that it is very watery
So all you need it a very little amount
A little goes a long way

After applying the BB cream
You would notice that it is NOT a matte finish
If you want to make it last longer
I suggest that you apply a setting powder to avoid it from slipping throughout the day
It gives a light to medium coverage
You can see you skin underneath
Which is a good thing!

So to conclude
Scent 3/5
Texture 4/5
Shades 2/5
Packaging 5/5

Would I recommend this to others?
Yes, if you have skin that needs the moisture
No, if you have skin that tends to be very oily or you do not fit in the shade range
