BB Cream Review: Estee Laude CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme





Friends over at Estee Lauder sent over their CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme for me to try.


As you all know, I'm not really a big fan of BB Creams. It's really the least "foundation" that I like since it doesn't really control oiliness. Although it's marketed for all skin type as it is more a healing balm than it is cosmetic, I find myself using this product for when I have pimples, undergone laser and peeling treatments and when i am just having a bad skin overall. I really can't deny how good it is for the skin.


Given the rise to fame of BB Cream in the cosmetic world, it's not surprising that high end brands like Estee Lauder finally joins the bandwagon. But thankfully incorporating it into their CyberWhite line to give the skin a luminous dewy look while at the same time help brighten the skin.

BB Cream to me should always have that "healing" and "safe" effect. I'd put up to not having my oiliness controlled if its going to be beneficial to the skin. I don't want a BB Cream masking as a glorified tinted moisturizer.

Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme with Multi-action Formula and SPF 35/PA+++ is a lightening BB creme that doesn't aggravate my acne, helps even out my skin tone and provide ample sun protection for my skin.


Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme with Multi-action Formula and SPF 35/PA+++ has a lightweight texture. The coverage is very minimal and doesn't cover flared up acnes, red cystic ones and dark pigmentation. But it covers redness around my mouth, sides of my nose and chin. Compared to other BB creams I've tried, this is has sheer coverage.

It has dewy radiant effect and would give dry skin a white glowy look. But with oily skin, one must set this with powder to achieve a matte effect.

What I love is that the shade of Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme with Multi-action Formula and SPF 35/PA+++ is that the shade is light and rather than the usual gray-ish tint we are use to on Japanese and Korean BB Cream, it has a beige-peach-near-to-our-skin-tone shade. Just see below! It's a better match for many skin tones.

I've been having bad skin days lately (thanks to late nights, stress and allergies from kissing my fuzzy pups), I acquired really huge cystic acne all over my face and red itchy patches. And though normally rely on my favored liquid foundations, BB creams seems to be the smart choice. It's a better barrier for my powder foundation from The Body Shop.

If only it controls my oiliness, this product would get A++ from me. But considering how I really don't go for BB cream, I'm giving Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme with Multi-action Formula and SPF 35/PA+++ a good A! A+ if its only affordable but it isn't. It's Estee Lauder after all.

I can't tell you how red my face have become over the past few days. I became extremely allergic to my pups' fur (probably because I'm allergic to dust and they roll around under the bed). Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme have effectively controlled my face's redness... and certainly at this point, I need something that can help lighten my skin given that I'm sure I will acquire pimple marks after my acne have healed.

It's definitely a great product despite the fact that it comes with a hefty price tag. After all, it is from Estee Lauder. I just know that many of you out there will be excited to know that Estee Lauder finally came out with a BB cream.

Here's the look I created with Estee Lauder CyberWhite Brilliant Cells Extra Intensive BB Creme:

For the record, this post informed me you dyed your hair. :)

I love BB Creams because they're all-in-one! Estee's prove to be too pricey for my wallet so I might not be able to try this at all! I adore the look you came up with... the product is a good base for your TBS face powder.

I admire that you are brave to show your brave face when you're all allergic! But wow, this product looks really effective. :)
