The Face Shop Power Perfection BB Cream in Natural Beige

Lately, I've been trying out sample sizes of different bb cream brands because mom went away on a month-long trip and she took my Maybelline BB cream (she liked it so much) with her. So being bb cream-less means I have the option to scout around for a replacement without feeling guilty for not using up the previous one! Haha..

Sample sizes are great because you don't want to waste money on stuff that leave you looking like a ghost. If you're still trying to figure out what kind or which brand works best for you, try getting samples first and see if you like it, before committing to a full sized bottle (which could set you back somewhere between Php 700-1000).

Good thing that I found this online shop by Miss Loren, who sells a variety of BB cream brands; from samples to full sized ones. She was having a 3 for 100 deal last month and after checking out the goods I decided on getting bb creams from Korean brands Etude House, The Face Shop, and Skin Food. I've already tried all three, and I must say there are some hits and misses.

I also came up with the following considerations before going full size:

1. High SPF, at least 30, since I'm out in the sun very often
2. Has neutral undertones as much as possible (some have gray/pink undertones that make me look like a corpse in real life and in pictures)
3. Very minimal white cast-pretty difficult to find, since a lot of BB creams leave a white cast which is noticeable in flash photography
4. Easy to spread, because I don't like pulling and tugging on my face

I'll be making separate reviews for each, starting with The Face Shop's Power Perfection BB Cream in Natural Beige

Product Description: 
  • A ‘3-in-1’ BB cream (anti-wrinkle, whitening, sun protection) with perfect coverage 
  • Total Skin Treatment BB cream(Special ingredients for rejuvenating skin): actively addresses all skin problems such as loss of firmness, dry skin, uneven skin texture and dull complexion 
  • Better makeup results (flawless coverage + good adherence + long lasting): 
  • Marvelous airy-touch texture: 
  • A light-as-air texture that smoothly melts into the skin upon application making skin comfortable and able to breathe. 
  • Clinically tested. (Clinical trials to test firmness, moisturization, coverage, and long lasting ability) 
My Review:

Texture: A bit difficult to spread on its own, will require some pulling and tugging to blend it out evenly. To fix this problem I mix in just a drop of argan oil before applying it to my face to make it more blendable. It's lightweight and not heavy at all on the face.

Coverage/Finish: On the heavier side of medium. It's buildable, so if you find it too sheer you can add more product to parts that need concealing. I didn't use any concealer at all after using this because my dark circles kind of disappeared already. A little goes a long way with this product; you don't need a lot of it to achieve good coverage. It has a nice finish as well, somewhere in between matte and dewy; it's like your skin, only better.

Scent: Very mild powdery scent

Staying Power and Oil Control: Lasts in the heat, doesn't melt off. Last me a good 10 hours without feathering/flaking off (which happens with Maybelline sometimes). I tried it several times without using powder on top, and after working for 8 hours I didn't look like I dipped my face in a frying pan. My skin looked just slightly dewy, but not oily at all.


Overall, I like it. Good coverage and lasting power. No white cast! And it makes my skin look healthy and glowing from within. Sounds exag but true.Candidate for purchase :)

    for your family. People who tend to overpack their personal
    effects are always caught up in this dilemma. Tent camping is great for families with younger children because it's fun, inexpensive, and the right combination of being outdoors without being too far from those modern conveniences.

  16. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as +447053820826 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something

  17. Thank you for this review! I've been using TFS magic cover BB cream for three years now and I might be upgrading and use this product instead. Thank you!!
