Since it has become popular, BB cream has become an essential part of every girl's beauty routine. "BB" stands for blemish balm or beauty balm. Earlier versions of BB cream were marketed as an all-in-one product. Originally created to soothe skin while reducing redness, it was dubbed as the ideal post-procedure product & the perfect makeup item for those with reactive, sensitive skin. BB cream was often introduced as a tinted moisturizer with a little something extra. It's primer, sunscreen, anti-aging cream & moisturizer rolled into one. When the BB cream was thrust into the mainstream, cosmetic brands were quick to come up with their own versions of the cult favorite. Let's focus on one of K-beauty's best: Tony Moly BB Cream.
Out of the many BB creams out in the market today, the Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura bb cream peaked my interest. This is because it holds the distinction of beating out several high-end brand BB creams in being ranked as the no. 1 BB cream by Korean TV show "Get it Beauty" in 2013. So what makes this BB cream so special?
My friends and I tried the Tony Moly BB Cream for about two weeks. We've tried quite a few bb creams in the past so my friends and I were excited to try this one because of its claims. Did it help us channel our inner goddesses? Let's find out. =)
- What's in it: The Tony Moly BB Cream contains sunflower seed oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Jasmine Flower Extract and pearl powder among others. The natural oils hydrate & strengthen the skin. They lock in the moisture to keep wrinkles at bay. It has Centella Asiatica extract that helps wounds heal fast. This also helps repair skin damage. Pearl powder brightens the skin. The SPF 37 PA+++ protects the skin from harmful the sun's UVA & UVB rays.
- What to expect: The Tony Moly BB Cream has the usual functions of makeup to conceal imperfections and create a perfect canvas for your makeup look. Apart from that, this exceptional BB cream promises to moisturize the skin, reduce wrinkles, make the skin firm, brighten dark spots, heal blemishes & protect the skin from sun damage.
- Texture, Shades, Packaging & Size: The Tony Moly BB Cream's texture is lighter than most BB creams. Where most BB creams are thick and creamy, this one is more of a slightly runny, syrupy liquid. It spreads effortlessly onto the skin. As far as the shades for this BB cream are concerned, their shade selection is limited to just 2 shades for now. The BB cream comes in a dainty pink and white squeezable plastic bottle. This is very good because it allows the user to dispense just the right amount of the product.
- Ease of use, coverage & finish: After cleansing, toning & moisturizing our skin, my friends and I used the Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura BB cream to start our daily makeup routine. Here's my personal take. Before rushing off to work, I would dispense a small drop on the back of my hand and use my ring finger to spread it onto my face. It glides on smoothly and creates a seamless, semi-matte finish. It has enough coverage to conceal my reddish acne scars, spots and smoothen wrinkles. My friends and I agreed that it does give you a goddess-like aura as it brightens your face. The first time I put this on, I went out the whole day and I was pleasantly surprised to see that my face still looked radiant, not oily after a few hours. The color didn't oxidize much on my skin. Rather, it blended well and gave me a gorgeous glow. After a long day, my face would normally look greasy that I would need to retouch several times. With the Tony Moly BB Cream, my look required fewer touch-ups. I also didn't see the need to put on concealer as the bb cream covered my imperfections quite well. I checked with my friends and they too had the same wonderful experience!
Honestly, I never any thought that a multitasking makeup, much less a BB cream, would live up to the hype. I'm so glad I've tried Tony Moly BB Cream! It's definitely earned its special place in my makeup kit. Try it now here at Niniko, I'm sure you'll love it too. =)Shop the Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura BB cream now!
