Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals BB Cream

Left: Old Packaging, Right: New Packaging

For those who don’t know, This is the definition of BB cream: (From Wikipedia)
BB cream, also known as Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm, is a cosmetic item sold mainly in East and Southeast Asia.Originally formulated in Germany it was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.
Since I’m having a problem with acnes, I rarely used foundation. I used the BB cream as a daily make-up. Today I will make a review about Maybelline BB cream. Maybelline been known worldwide for their wonderful mascara. Last year, Maybelline Indonesia launch their very first BB cream with Sherina as spokeperson. As a BB cream Lover and a big Fan of Maybelline, I can’t miss out the chance to try this BB cream :)

Details From the packaging:
- Brighten Skin : Visible Whitening effect
- Cover Imperfections : Reduces the apperance of pores, skin redness dissapears
- Moisturizes + Protects: all day hydration + helps to protect skin from UV rays and free radicals.

How to Apply: (From their Website)
1. Create 4 points on the face (chin, cheeks and forehead) using BB cream
2. Greed evenly on the face
3. BB cream may look white at first, keep greed until the color blends perfectly with skin cream

This is my 3rd Tube (with new packaging) and I love it. I used it for daily used. cleanser-toner-moisturizer-suncream-BB Cream-Loose powder. (my daily routine in the morning)

Swatch on my hand

Notice the different? :)

What I love About This BB cream:
- It Has SPF 26++. UV protection is a must for me :)
- Easy To blend
- Cheap price and easy to get in my city.
- Brighten my face
- Cover my blemishes and Pores well.
- Fit for daily use

What I hate about this BB cream:
- Only has 1 shade. (But it suit me well, so must I say I love it? :p)
- My face become oily after use this for 3/4 hours. I must use oil control film to reduce it.
