“Why hello there, anti-pollution BB Cream!
It’s super nice to meet you, and just in time for Manila’s summer season at
that, I’m sure I’d get a lot of use out of you.” This, friends, is the OU Sun BB Cream that Charis sent me for
review. I’ve been using it non-stop as base for the past weeks, and now I’m
ready to share my findings (and feelings too) about it. Read on!
is simple and neat, but there is just something about sleek and practical squeeze-y tube with minimalist design
that appealed to me. Maybe it’s the millennial trend, I’m not sure, but I like
it. On the tube are the claims of product as well. We all know that makeup
bases always promise us the world: 24-hr staying power, best coverage, flawless
skin in a bottle etc. and I must say OU is up there among those coming up with
pretty interesting claims.
OU Sun BB Cream is a combination of UV protection and BB Cream with
anti-pollution, whitening and anti-wrinkle properties. Told you it’s
interesting, I was most drawn to the anti-pollution
claim though, if you live in Manila and if you use public transportation at
least several times a week here, you’d get me. This is made possible by a Sorbitol-based ingredient that creates a
second skin barrier against fine dust. What’s that sound, you ask? Those are my
clean pores cheering! LOL
easy to blend and is fragranced slightly, which mostly just makes me think of
fresh. Coverage is light, it does feel a lighter
than my other BB creams, yet buildable. My skin is being quite stubborn right
now and one layer didn’t cover some of the severe dark marks, but I was able to
go over them again and it blended really well without looking cakey.
used and tested it out doing the things I normally do, and this is without any
powder to see how it will look like as the time goes by, and I was surprised at
how long I was able to go without setting it. After 4 hours, my nose makes
itself the center of attention again so I dusted a thin layer of powder and I
was okay for the rest of the day. It looks well too under liquid foundation as
a makeup base because to be honest, I need the full coverage for my imperfect
skin and for my sanity.
Here’s my complete look with concealer to cover the dark spots but without powder
while I haven’t used it long enough to have feedback regarding whitening and
anti-wrinkle, it definitely delivers in the makeup base and sun protection
respect. It provides SPF50+ and PA+++,
which is safe in the knowledge that you are pretty much protected from the sun.
The only shade matched me, it’s a little white at first but adjusts once blended
out, so don’t fret my morena girls! Still, I’m hoping for more shades in the
future. So far so good with the OU Sun BB Cream, it’s going with me on my next
