And with that, I give you my review of the Innisfree Eco Natural Green Tea BB Cream - the 14th BB Cream that I have tried since I started this blog (in 2011) and began my love affair with Korean makeup brands.
What I have is the 4mL sample size, which looks like this.
|Innisfree Eco Natural Green Tea BB Cream.|
|Mostly (as in 95%) Hangul text at the back.|
|Full sized tube, 40 mL.|
'Enriched with Green Tea seed oil from pure Jeju Island. Green Tea revives dry, stressed skin by supplying abundant moisture."
And as you can see, it has SPF29/PA++ - a pretty decent SPF number for me. Now here's how the product looks like.
|A few dots of the BB Cream at the back of my hand...|
|Spread it evenly... (left side without BB Cream, right side with BB Cream)|
Wear time is okay - about six to seven hours with a primer on. I must say though, that I did feel a bit of oil in my T-zone by the fourth hour (I wear eyeglasses, take note) which I needed to blot off and dust with a bit of powder afterwards.
|And voila, it adjusts to my skin tone nicely!|

As for the price of the full-sized product (which I doubt I would buy anyway), it's quite affordable at 14000 Korean Won. That's around $13 or Php590 when converted. Unfortunately though, there are no Innisfree stores yet here in the Philippines. I do my Innisfree shopping online, or through the kindness of my husband who's still in Seoul as of this writing. :)
What I love:
- Contains green tea, which moisturizes the skin and delays skin aging.
- Light to medium coverage.
- Dewy finish.
- Gives the skin a natural, healthy glow.
- Affordable price.
- Contains all-natural ingredients.
What you might not like:
- A bit tricky to apply.
- Oil control is so-so.
- The scent. Ugh!
Have you tried this BB Cream before? Do let me know if you have, and if you share the same sentiments with me. I'd like to verify if it's just my nose being overly sensitive to the scent, or it just really smells that way. Haha! :)
