Review: L'egere White Multi Blemish Balm (BB) Cream

I had jumped on the BB cream wagon after watching a few tutorials on YouTube and reading a few reviews on blogs. I really wanted to try these creams because they seemed so easy to use and still had decent coverage. The only thing that perhaps bothered me about BB creams is the limited shade selections. We're all not the same color ya know! I eventually settled on L'egere's White Multi BB Cream due to the many positive reviews I read.
You can click on the picture to enlarge the ingredients or just read the description here:
"All in One Functions: sun protection+make up base+ skin cover+ foundation for 24hrs

Whitening & Skin Care Formula: White Multi BB Cream acts effectively on irritated skin, concealing dermal blemish and helps skin rejuvenation with innovative active ingredients. Blocking the penetration of UV rays and other harmful factors.

Good For: Skin that needs protection, irritated skin by peeling and laser procedures, sensitive and trouble skin
."

I have to say I am quite impressed with this BB cream. It has medium coverage and goes on smoothly. I apply it with my fingers since it warms up the cream and also allows better blending. There is a light floral scent that does fade once it's applied to the face. This is my go to foundation when I'm feeling pretty lazy or when I'm out running errands. It has enough coverage to conceal most of my redness but I don't look like a I have a ton of product on my face. It's no wonder why so people love it!

You only need a small amount to cover your entire face. This is especially true if you use your fingers. It says that it's a white multi BB cream, so I guess it's suppose to have whitening properties but I haven't noticed any difference. Maybe if I use it more on an everyday basis I would notice something. I have also read some reviews where people have broken out from it. I don't have this issue and I have what I think is sensitive skin, but read the ingredients if you aren't sure. This doesn't really control shine so oily to combination skin will have to blot or set with a powder.

The color matching is best suited for about NC20 to a light NC30. I don't feel like I look washed out, sickly, or grey. The BB cream does look darker when it first comes out of the tube but it lightens up when you spread it. Here is a picture for reference:


Pros:
-Lightweight
-Easy to Use
-Great for everyday
-Only need a small amout
-Tube will last a long time
Cons
-Some may not like the smell
-Limited color range. It only comes in this shade
-Not good for picture taking
-No shine control

Would I repurchase? Yes

  6. swallow's nest in an edible gel form is supposed be good for the skin too. it gives that clear and pasty skin that we all love.

    it's mad expensive. my brother and i bought some for my mom for the Mother's Day. it was like 400 bucks for like a 6-8 oz jar. Luckily we finally found the one of popular brand online (http://hongkong-bird-nest.50webs.com/index_e.htm and http://www.euyansang.com/)

    dad said it's really popular in indonesia. that a guy has to climb a high mountain to get the nest. that's why it's so expensive.

    i mean why doesn't the dude just look for the fabled korean swallow king, capture it and let it lay eggs full of gold! then, he wouldn't have to work so hard and climb them high mountains.
