Sponsored Review: Clinique Age Defense BB Cream

Clinique has launched its own BB Cream in November, which is available at Clinique counters for US $21 at Asia Pacific airports and Duty Free Downtown stores as well as selected airlines.

Targeted at frequent travellers, the Clinique Age Defence BB Cream promises to be the skin-perfecting, multi-tasking cream for the jet-setting woman. It contains SPF 30/PA+++, that provides broad coverage from Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. Other active ingredients include caffeine, that calms and soothes irritated skin while reducing appearance of lines and wrinkles, glycyrrhetinic acid that reduces skin irritation from stress, and a seaweed extract that reduces production of oil.



I was sent a tube of the BB Cream for review.






REVIEW
Pros
  • Oil free
  • Fragrance free
  • Nice, even coverage
  • Easy to remove
  • Good broad spectrum SPF protection
  • Lots of natural and tested ingredients for additional skin care benefits
Cons
  • Thick texture
  • One shade
  • Slightly too pink for me
VERDICT
YY Y -half /5



Generally, I have come to accept that BB cream will never be able to match my skin perfectly. If I find a BB cream with a texture and efficacy that I like, I overcome the shade-matching problem by using a thin layer of the BB cream and carefully blending. The Clinique BB cream performs pretty well for a western-brand BB cream. I especially love the fact that it is allergy tested, 100% fragrance free and oil free. These are things that promise the BB cream will not cause any allergic reactions for sensitive skins.
