It’s pretty hot today, and I’m fully occupied with this accounting thingy in the office. I’m looking forward for a rainy day so I can sip a cup of hot coffee. LOL! I just hope my BB cream doesn’t make my skin dry as I’ve been in the office since morning, and I haven’t go out as it’s pretty hot out there. Yeah. The weather in Kota Kinabalu is dry at the moment. Anyway, I have a few BB cream in my make-up box at the moment, and I’ve decided to write a review on Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ which I was supposed to review a few weeks ago but due to my lappy has to be sent out for some minor repair, thus this post is delayed.
Why Do You Need BB Cream?
We have BB, CC, and DD Cream available in the market, and each of this cream has its own functions. You cannot simply buy, and assume that they are all the same one, or compare each of them (if you have that ‘ini lebih bagus daripada yang satu lagi’). In case you have a little knowledge (or ‘zero’ knowledge) about this BB cream, then you should read this before you scroll down to see the result. LOL!
BB cream stands for ‘Blemish Balm’, and it was initially created to be used to help heal skin after skin peels as well as hide any scars and redness post peel treatment. It is later known by everyone in South Korea where celebrities made note of its ability to transform skin. Most BB creams are said to be able to moisturise, protect against harmful UV, soothe skin, and give full coverage. Moreover, BB cream functions as a tinted moisturiser. Different brands would have different ability to cover blemishes, and skin imperfections. If you’re having acne prone skin, then you should consider having BB cream.

What I Say
As a make-up artist, I usually pay close attention on how long a product can last on my face before I use it to my clients. In fact, I found out that BB cream would usually leave a white cast which look so chalky on dry skin, and cakey on oily skin. However, this BB cream comes in a very handy, sleek, chic, and minimalist packaging. The tube has a long and narrow opening which is good control of the amount for application.
It has ‘not so’ thick but creamy consistency, and it’s not too oily. It blends well into skin, and would not dry your skin – great for people who works in an air-conditioned environment. The cream looks a shade lighter than my skin tone, but it matches my skin tone quite well after blending it out to settle for a few minutes.
Apart from that, I also like the fact that this BB cream is alcohol, and paraben free. In short, it does not contain harmful ingredients that might cause irritation to the skin. Moreover, it does not contain artificial colors! However, that ‘against animal testing’ doesn’t catch my attention as I’m only interested on the features and benefits of using this BB cream.
For someone who are always on the run, and doesn’t like to apply make-up a lot, this BB cream should be included in your make-up box. Just apply a dot on your cheek, forehead, nose, and chin then blend them all using Cerro Queen Natural Emulsion Powder Puff (MYR 4.90), Real Techniques Stippling Brush (MYR 70.20), or Cerro Queen Multifunctional Oblique Cosmetic Make-up Brush (MYR 60.72). You can get these applicators from Natta Cosme at a very affordable price! I love the light floral scent so much! It also covers freckles, redness, and blemishes. Enough to make your face with dewy glow. However, you still need to apply concealer as this BB cream doesn’t have the ability to conceal pimples, and dark under eyes. If you wanted to get that Korean-look, this should be your solution to achieve that ulzzang look!
