EnCara BB Cream Review

I have not tried so much products for my face yet because sometimes I get so impatient in determining what shade would match my skin tone.

I have found this product review form a Pinay blogger from Cebu, Color is my Weapon by Noe Mae Villagonzalo. I found the review very interesting because this product suits Filipino skin. As much as I heard of, BB creams are really famous to Koreans, which made me think twice of purchasing BB creams in the past. And since it is on sale, I had to purchase one from Aila Apolo. She is selling it for Php499.00 instead of Php999.00.

So here's my review.

The packaging is very elegant! It was sent to me packed in a bubble wrap. Which is a plus. The box is silver in a diamond-like (sorry, so hard to describe) shape. The product is in a black matte 50mL tube, very cute!

The product claims to have:

  1. Sun Protection (SPF 20)
  2. Whitening Effect
  3. Pearl Extract, Ginseng Extract
It also states the direction on how to use: "After the basic skin care, apply appropriate amount onto your skin and spread it with a gentle motion."

The photo on the left was bare whereas the right photo is with one layer of the BB Cream. Look how flawless it is!

Let's go to the face. I'm sorry for the tired looking face (*so ashamed). Hahahah. 

  • First photo: Bare face, only toner and moisturizer applied. Notice all the discolorations, pimple marks and the active pimple.
  • Second photo: I would like to show a close comparison so I applied BB cream on the right side of my face. It gave my face a semi matte finish. And what I like it is it acts as a concealer as well.
  • Third photo: Full face with BB Cream. The blemishes and the pimple were covered.

  1. Packaging.
  2. The price.
  3. The scent because it's fragrance-free. Haha!
  4. Can be used as a concealer and a makeup base. Perfect for everyday use.
  5. It does not cake! Perfect!
  1. Too light for me. So I still have to apply a powder foundation to match with my skin. I would also try to mix it with a liquid foundation to achieve the correct color to match my skin.
I hope this review is helpful for you. See you on my next reviews!
