Sponsored Review: Bio-essence Bio-Platinum BB Cream Plus Multi Effects SPF 25 PA/ ++

Today I'll continue with a review of another Bio-essence BB Cream.

Don't forget, Aichaku Beautification readers can  redeem FREE Bio Multi-Effect BB cream and Bio Platinum BB Cream 2-in-1 sachets from my blog, using this link:


On to the review. The second Bio-essence BB Cream that I'll be reviewing is the Bio-essence Bio-Platinum BB Cream Plus Multi Effects SPF 25 PA/ ++ for 10-in-1 whitening and skin-nourishing benefits.


This BB Cream contains Platinum, which is believed to have anti-aging properties when applied to the skin. The product also has Tanaka Bark Extract, with hydrating, cooling and anti-inflammatory properties; Bio Energy Fluid that contains mineral and trace mineral elements, essential for healthy, youthful skin; and Ginseng, which promotes cell-regrowth and helps prevent the signs of ageing.



I wore this BB Cream for a day and found myself not really liking it very much. I thought it made my skin look too pallid, and even to the extent of pale and cakey. Though when I asked around, I was told it looked pretty natural and a good match for my skin tone. It doesn't have a good coverage and lasting power. My skin oiled up quite fast after a few hours. You can also see its texture is much more liquid. Yet strangely it dries much faster making it very much harder to blend, compared to the Bio-essence Bio Multi-Effect BB Cream SPF25/PA++, which I previously reviewed.



REVIEW
Pros
  • Multiple ingredients promise multiple youth-retaining benefits
  • Lighter tone, probably makes it a better match for my skin
  • Very liquid and feels light on the skin
Cons
  • Dries very fast, hard to blend
  • Looks cakey but skin oils up fast, not very good in terms of oil control
  • Very liquid texture - I spilled quite a lot of the product by accident as a result, and it also leaked out of the cap :p (it's my own carelessness, but it's probably better housed in a container with a pump dispenser instead of a screw cap)
VERDICT YYY /5


I don't think this BB Cream suits me much, but it would probably be good for someone with drier skin, that is well-prepped with moisturiser.

Bio-essence has extended the referral program to everyone, including blog readers. So if you manage to refer 20 friends and above, you get to receive a Bio-essence product :)

Interesting product, it's always nice to see new bb creams pop out. Too bad about the oil control~~
