It comes in a really cute pink container.
Love the fact that it has a pump dispenser!
This is the ingredients:
This is the instructions:
Although it says that it can be used as a BB cream foundation, I find it a bit too light to be used that way but it's great as a primer. Because it is green, it is color correcting especially for any redness.
I find that it evens out my skin tone and even helps to diminish the light darkness under my eyes and helps to lighten the dark spot on my cheek.
Right after application
After BB cream has been on for at least 10 minutes
According to another site, the vitamins in it are: A, B5, C, E, F and H. Vitamin A (Retinol) helps to make the skin elastic. Vitamin B5 (Pantenol), controls oil and moisture into the skin. Helps to make moist and smooth skin texture. Vitamin C (Ascorbyl Glucoside) helps to improve from within, dull skin tone. Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) helps to make your skin moisturized and healthy. Vitamin F (Tocopheryl Linoleate) helpst to protect you skin from external radicals. Vitamin H (Biotin) improves rough skin for a smoother skin texture.
As a makeup base, I find that it really helps to keep my foundaton stay put. Even though it's been quite muggy, my makeup hasn't melted.
After concealing and apply Hada Labo BB cream as foundation
Note: I didn't apply concealer under my eyes, just on the dark spot on cheek
This is from the other day but this is after 8 hrs of wear and no touching up
I had read that it gives a matte finish, which worried me quite a bit but I don't find that it's matte. I think if anything, it might be semi matte. I recently tried Shu Uemura's mousse base and it was really matte! Didn't like it at all.
I'm not sure if it's the vitamins in this BB cream, but I have noticed that my skin does appear to be healthier and smoother even after using it for only a week. I don't think it's my imagination.
This also comes in 1 Purple, which is supposed to help brighten dull skin tone. I got a sample of this with my order and will be trying it out. I just checked Pretty & Cute's website and it seems that this is out of stock. Hopefully it'll be restocked soon.
Thank you to Sandy for introducing me to this BB cream.
