Project BB Cream | Laneige Snow BB Cream.

Well, it sure took me months to get another BB Cream review out. I can't believe the last review I did was way back in February - when I still sported a pixie and my son was still in Kindergarten. Haha!

Anyhoo, on to my review. This will be the 15th in my Project BB Cream series (yes folks, so far I have tried 15 kinds of BB Cream in my lifetime), and perhaps my most favorite among all the BB Creams that I've tried.
Laneige Snow BB Cream.
This one's called the Snow BB Cream, from the highly-acclaimed Korean skincare brand Laneige. If you're a Kdrama/Kpop fan like me, you can easily associate this brand to Song Hye Kyo, Soong Jong Ki, and Song Jae Rim. (So I just noticed that the brand's endorsers have something similar in their names. Haha!)
#2 Natural.
Laneige calls this their 'smart and advanced BB Cream', with its whitening, anti-wrinkle and UV protection properties (SPF41 PA++).  This product also boasts of the 'liquid crystal essence ingredient', which works as a natural barrier that locks moisture on to the skin.
Squeeze tube bottle, 10 mL sample size.
The Laneige Snow BB Cream comes in two shades - #1 Shimmer Brightening, and #2 Natural. I have the latter, which is neutral beige in color but adjusts accordingly to one's skin tone.
A swatch of the Snow BB Cream #2 Natural.
This BB Cream has a light, non-sticky texture that's quite easy to blend. It provides medium to full coverage, yet looks very natural on the skin. It also leaves the skin with a luminous finish - the kind that makes your skin look healthy and glowing. 
Blend, blend, blend!
I love how this BB Cream lasted for hours on my face, with very little to almost no touch-ups. If you have oily skin, you may need to blot every few hours or so but that's pretty much it. Oh, and did I mention that this BB Cream smells so nice? It has this mild powdery, floral scent that I fell in love with at first whiff.
Left without BB Cream, right with BB Cream.
What I love:
- Buildable coverage.
- Looks very natural on the skin.
- Feels light on the skin, too.
- Lovely, dewy finish without looking sparkly and all.
- Excellent staying power. 
- SPF42 PA++.
- Mild, floral scent.
- No break-outs, no allergies, safe for sensitive skin.

What you might not like:
- Only two shades available.
- A bit pricier than the other BB Creams in the market, but then again, Laneige is a high-end brand.
In the end, you're really getting your money's worth. :)

The Laneige Snow BB Cream sells for around 30,000 won in Korea (where this sample came from). Here in the Philippines, a 50mL tube sells for Php 1650 (correct me if I'm wrong) and is available at all six branches in the Metro.

This looks like a great BB cream. Like that it has buildable coverage and isn't super fragrant.

Kath Rivera said...

That BB cream looks good on you! I'm not really fond of BB creams, but hey, who knows, I might just want to try one soon. I'll keep this BB brand in mind if and when that time comes. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres
