Review: Bio-Essence Multi- Effect BB Cream

I used to be a BB cream lover but my complexion went really tan after a few exotic outdoors activities and sunburn. Since then, my skintone has been tan forever :( So I had to abandon all my BB creams and go on with foundation. Nevertheless, I love how awesome the BB cream look on me!! For me BB cream is a one step product that covers all your imperfection even if your skin are like the orange below. :p

Why BB Cream?

BB Creams stands for Blemish Balm Cream was initially prescribed by dermatologists to patients who had undergone laser skin treatments to soothe redness and cater to their sensitive skin. Most celebrities in Korea started using them to create a natural and dewy finish.

Recently, I received this Bio-Essence Multi-Effect BB cream for review purposes. I often learn the raves about Bio-Essence especially their face lifting cream and the 24K Bio-Gold eye products. As for BB cream, honestly I did not know they introduce BB cream until this product was sent to me. (I am such a ignorant girl) Bio-Essence has launched 3 different BB creams series: Aqua BB Cream (moisture); Bio Platinum BB cream (whitening) and the Bio Multi- effect BB Cream (Coverage).

Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream SPF 25/PA++ is created to meet the needs of busy modern women. It is uniquely blended with Bio Energy Fluid, Pollen extracts, Titanium Dioxide, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng and Angelica to nourish skin while providing superior protection against sun’s rays. It combines the benefits of concealing, sun block, skin repair, moisturizing, oil control, nourishment, reduction of wrinkles and lines and whitening into one bottle.
Product Efficacies:
  •  Smooth velvety texture to provide a natural and flawless finishing
  •  Refines pores and whitens complexion
  • Provides lasting hydration to prevent skin dryness and regulates oil secretion
  • Nourishes skin with the essential nutrients and mineral elements to revitalize skin 
  • Improves skin texture for smoother, softer, refined and fairer skin
  • Protects skin from harmful UV rays
This BB cream comes in the size of 30g (S$28). The plastic twist cap packaging feels very light as if the BB cream is about to finish. Can't blame because the texture of the BB cream is quite watery that it will automatically comes out if you left the cap opened.

"Bio Energy Fluid, Pollen extracts, Titanium Dioxide, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng and Angelica"

The texture of the BB cream is quite watery and is easy to blend on your skin. The color of the BB cream may look darker than your skin, but once it blends in it will become fairer.

I've been using this recently and all I can say I fall in love with my skin. Oh no, is this BB cream. The first time I tried this I pat too much on my skin and I look so fair. The coverage of the BB cream is awesome making your skin look so flawless and smooth. Besides that, I really adore the glowy effect with this BB cream.
Look how it tones down the redness on my skin and conceal my scars nicely. It has a good coverage without being cakey and easy to apply. The oil control is excellent too!! I have a combination skin and I only have to blot once a day with this BB cream. Towards the end of the day, my skin still look fresh and flawless.
6 hours after BB cream application
The only issue I have with this  BB cream is that it doesn't seems like a match for my skintone (NC-30). I personally think that it is much more suitable for people who're fairer. Despite that, this BB cream has a little pink undertones. I guess most BB creams does. To be exact, I had a strong Asian yellowish undertones. That's another reason why BB cream does not works on m. But I guess that the whitish cast that makes me look fairer would be the SPF 25+ in the BB cream (No extra sunblock needed).

It looks fair on me when it was freshly applied. After 6 hours, it oxidize a bit on my skin to match my skintone. One thing I like about this BB cream is that it doesn't turns greyish on me. You know how irritating when your face turns grey by the end of the day.The BB cream does oxidize on my skin but it was good because it suits into my skintone after then.

Rating: 4/5 Me likey~~

Overall, this BB cream is awesome!! I would recommend this to those who wanted to purchase a BB cream and try to hide their imperfection in one go like the 'Orange'. I cannot express to you how I LOVE the flawless look on my skin the whole day.  :)

*Bio-Essence could be purchased at most Watsons, Guardian, Robinsons, John Little, BHG, OG, NTUC FairPrice, Carrefour, Giant, C K Department Store and other leading cosmetic houses.

Cynthia Loh said...

I guess BB Cream are much an Asian makeup craze. But western brands such as Lancome had launched their own BB cream too. Did you checked that out?

Cynthia Loh said...

Oww..That's sad. BB creams does tends to clog pores. Sometimes I do have a little breakouts that's why a double cleansing is a must.

Cynthia Loh said...

Go get one babe~~

Cynthia Loh said...

This brand is quite popular here and in HK i guess. I was quite amazed with this too.

Cynthia Loh said...

BB cream is like a makeup base. So all BB cream need to be remove before you went to bed else it will clogged your pores.

I just found Bio-essence is so COOL. I bought the face-lifting cream with ATP since I wish my face can appear smaller, slimmer and sharper (lol) and I saw Xiaxue's review (perhaps you know this person, the most popular blogger of the asia pacific), and in the box it comes with a tiny package, 'try me' printed on it, its something like, oil, saying that after applying that oil you can have skin like babies and yes, it does work for me lol, and the face-lifting cream is really effective, yes, your face can appear smaller like, from 15cm to 12, 13cm? but i think bio-essence is expensive isnt it?

BTW guys, if you wanna buy bio-essence in Malaysia, don't go Guardian, Watson is cheaper. as for the face-lifting cream I bought, Guardian sells with the price of RM102 which is FREAKING expensive wtf, i considered before i wanna take it to the counter, then i did not, 2 weeks after i went to Watson, and guess what, it costs RM85, plus they're having promotion, another 10% off! no doubt, bio-essence is still expensive -.-
