Hi, everyone! It’s now 2016, and I hope you all had a happy New Year. ❤ This year, I hope to blog more often. There are some new changes to my blog, such as my new banner and some new ideas. I decided to use brackets for each title showing which category the post belongs to. Do you like the idea of using brackets for my titles? I also will try to watermark my photos from now on. Please let me know your opinions! ❤
Now, I’ll start the review for the Laneige BB Cushion.
Here is the description for this BB Cushion from Target’s website:
“The revolutionary 5-in-1 BB in a convenient compact. Go beyond your regular BB cream. Broad-spectrum SPF 50 blocks harmful UVA/UVB rays, while skin perfecting Optimal Mineral Water cools and hydrates upon application. Prevent shine and brighten skin by visibly reducing dark spots. Patented air cushion distributes just the right amount of BB cream. Apply whenever and wherever you want, with no buildup or bother. All day flawless skin is just 1 step away with BB Cushion.”
I actually bought this (along with another Laneige product) a year ago but somehow forgot about it until now. I was shocked when I saw Laneige products at Target, and when I bought this, there was a sale going on so I got a free product. I paid for the Laneige BB Cushion, and got a cleanser for free (which I will review later!).
~ Pros ~
- No negative reactions
- Fantastic packaging
- Easy to apply
~ Cons ~
- Shiny finish
- Sheer coverage
Read on for more details…
The BB Cushion comes with a refill, which is great! I’m not sure how long this will last, but I’ve been using the product for a week now and you do not need to use much to cover your face.
The design is so sleek and sophisticated! I love this packaging. This is the second BB Cushion I’ve tried; the first one I tried was the Ossion Secret Total Cushion, but I wasn’t satisfied with that one since it was way too light for my skin tone. The packaging of the Laneige one also looks nicer than the Ossion one (which is ironic since the Ossion one was ridiculously expensive).
The Laneige cushion comes with this lovely dark blue applicator sponge! It sits on a tray that separates it from the product. There’s also a handy-dandy mirror! This mirror is so nice… It’s way better than my current compact mirror.
Ah yes, that feeling when you remove the film from the product… There’s no turning back!
The air cushion has tiny little holes to enable product distribution. I haven’t had any issues with getting excess product; when I press down with the applicator sponge, only a little bit of product comes out at a time. This is ideal since if I need more product, it’s easy to press again and continue.
I tried the product on my arm first, and was disappointed by the shininess. Do you see that shimmery spot on my skin? That’s the BB cream. I hoped it would be less shiny on my face, and it wasn’t too bad. This BB cream would be fine for daily wear since it gives a light coverage. It doesn’t cover up much, but evens out the skin tone. Sadly, my pores still look huge with this product. I was also hoping this BB cream would be matte, but it’s not. There was no mention of shimmer or shine in the product description, but oh well! I’ll still use this product up.
Here’s a close-up photo of me wearing no makeup except for the Laneige BB Cushion:
As you can see, the product doesn’t do anything for my giant pores. It does even my skin tone though, so my acne scars (and that chicken pox scar from forever ago) blend into the rest of my skin. The color of this BB cream is lighter than my skin tone, but it’s not as light as the Ossion one.
I don’t think I will repurchase this, since I would rather find a matte BB cushion. I will try to use this daily and see if it offers any skincare benefits. If so, I’ll write about it!
