I am on the quest for the perfect BB Cream for my skin type and tone,
many have come close but let me down with a minor niggle here and there
but today I have one of the best BB Cream's I have encountered thus far,
okay it may not be my new holy grail but for others I feel this may be "The One"!
Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream comes presented within a typical squeeze style
bottle which is typical for many foundations, what sets it apart is the fact it is the packaging is green
and in my opinion has more of an Eastern BB Cream feel from the get go opposed to those
we have seen in the UK as of late.
I have no issues with the packaging it dispenses the product nicely and hasn't present any problems,
I guess if I was to nit pick I could say that with a squeeze style tube you are often left with excess
product stuck to the walls of the tube but then again you can always snip the top off and scoop
out any remains.
The Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream comes in one shade which is deemed a suit all shade,
I do have to disagree and say that it is fairly light with a grey/sallow tone.
As far as universal BB Creams go it is not the lightest universal shade by any means
but it will look ashen and plain odd on any skin tone deeper than the MAC NC/NW30-35 mark.
Like most decent BB Creams this promises to moisturise and nourish the skin, the nourishment
part is debatable but it certain does add a little moisture but not so much that my oily skin goes crazy!
It also aims to brighten and even the skin tone which is completely true, it covers so well almost
like a full coverage foundation but without feeling heavy or uncomfortable on the skin,
it does also have a slight brightening effect but as it is an Asian BB Cream it does also have a slight
whitening effect which some may not be a fan of.
The final touch is an SPF 30 which protects against harmful UV rays.
The formula is thick yet easily applied and absorbed by the skin,
it does not clog, cake nor feel uncomfortable on the skin nor does it highlight any skin imperfections
such as enlarged pores, fine lines or dry areas of the face.
It easily covers any blemishes, scars etc without masking the skin or the need for a separate concealer.
One thing I do feel I should point out is that it does have a floral scent that some may
I do feel for best wear this should be set with a finishing powder of some sort with it I can easily
see 8 hours of wear before I need to touch up some areas.
