Snoe Beauty S Skin Vitamin E SPF 30

BB Creams are slowly piling up in my vanity. For someone who stay away from them, I notice I have accumulated quite a few. 

One of those is the S Skin BB Vitamin E with SPF 30, what I now dub as the Pinay BB Cream. At first swatching, I thought I wouldn't like this BB Cream at all. It's too moisturizing and it seemed as if the shade wasn't a good match on my skin. It's bit pinkish too and I thought I would look tan in pictures.

Like most BB creams go, it is moisturizing and leaves a certain sheen on the skin when applied. It is like any regular tinted moisturizer but more benefits Not something an oily skin like me would be too keen to try. But try I did. I wanted to give this product a chance since for Php249.00 for a 40ml tube, it's nice to have an alternative to expensive BB Creams.

I might be the last person to know anything about BB Cream. My friend Kikay Trekkie has got BB's down to a T. But skincare and makeup in one is something that I'm quite very familiar with.

I've been using this product on and off for about 3 weeks now, I think it's a now a good time for me to review this since I've ran it through a good amount of testing.

Notes:
  • It's not as dark as I thought would it be. On my hand and wrist, Shade 3 seem to be dark but on my skin, it seemed to matched. (I'm going to get my hands on Shade 2 soon to compare it.)
  • It's really moisturizing and gives my skin a certain sheen.
  • It's got a good coverage given that I have a few blemishes to cover.I don't  use concealer, FYI.
  • It's has a powdery scent - this I really like.
As a makeup, S Skin BB Vitamin E with SPF 30 makes good light foundation for dry to normal skin. If you are combination to oily, you need to set this with a matte powder. This BB gives a nice glow and dewy look to the skin.

As a skincare, this makes a great alternative for your regular sunblock with the SPF 30. It's a great moisturizer for those with severe dry skin to normal skin.

Although I am not much of fan of BB Cream, I consider this as a good alternative to regular foundation for everyday use. I would rather risk oiling up a few hours and then just retouch than to always use liquid foundation everyday.

If you're looking to try a BB Cream that is affordable and gives good coverage, this is it. But don't rely on this for lasting power as it takes only an hour or two for oilies to show up and for makeup to fade if not set properly with powder foundation.

What to love...
  • Homegrown. This product is made in the Philippines by Filipinas for Filipinas. :)
  • It's affordable (Php249/40ml)
  • Provides good coverage.
  • Smells nice.
  • Moisturizing through Vitamin E (ideal for dry to normal skin)
  • Has a sun protection (SPF 30)


What's not to...
  • Staying power is not so good if you're oily or sweaty.
  • Needs to be re-applied as oilies creep up after an hour or two (this depends on how severe your oiliness is)

I highly recommend this to those with severely dry to normal skin and those with minimal blemishes to cover. This is also great for those who wants to achieve a dewy look.



No makeup | With S Skin BB Vitamin E with SPF 30 (shade 3)

First photo, I got no makeup on. Second photo, face is applied with the S Skin BB Vitamin E with SPF 30 (Shade 3). I skip using concealer altogether when I use BB Creams. As you can see most of my blemishes have disappeared with the S Skin BB alone. Below you'll see a full-on makeup where I set the bb cream with powder and have applied eye makeup, blush and lipstick. :)
