Have you heard the buzz about Erborian’s BB and CC Creams yet? It seems like I hear about them every time I turn around, and I have to say that after trying out the brand, I can understand why. Erborian has replaced all of my other BB Creams (previously I’ve cycled between It Cosmetics, YSL and Dior), as it is just the right amount of coverage and a great match for my skin. I’ve tried it out in both the tube and cushion compact forms (both are great, but they’re not identical), and I’ve also fallen for their Glow Creme.
Note that all of these products come in only a few shades, all of my products are in the lightest shade, Clair. Yes, there really is a difference between the BB Crème and BB Crème Cushion Compact in their shade, I was surprised by how different they looked. Note that despite this, they both work well on my skin. I think this is because they’re more of a light to medium coverage, and enough of my own skin shows through that they are still a decent match and don’t need to be quite so exact.
Erborian BB Crème
This is their original BB Cream, and it’s my current favorite. It has a light level of moisturization, which is just perfect for my combination skin in the warmer weather. The light to medium coverage is a little bit buildable, but really it’s just the right amount of coverage to cover up imperfections, but you can’t really tell that it is anything but great looking skin. I also don’t need to blend it at all!
Also included in the formulation are a sunscreen (SPF 20, it does provide full spectrum coverage as seen below), licorice root to help hyperpigmentation, vitamin E (an antioxidant), and magnesium (there’s a great recap of magnesium in skin care on Omorovicza’s website).
I’ve been reaching for this BB Cream nonstop lately, I’ve almost gone through an entire tube! It’s already in my Sephora cart for a repurchase.
