 The product comes in a lightweight squeeze- type plastic tube. I also like its gorgeous steel gray-burgundy metallic cap.

 Here's a skin swatch. It only comes in one shade, a medium beige shade with heavy yellow undertones. Finally, another BB Cream with the right undertone for our skin tone! Methinks that this shade can fit girls with NC/NW30-NC/NW40 skin tones

As you can see, the BB Cream is quite creamy--it has a slightly thick consistency yet it doesn't feel too sticky, and a very moisturizing texture which makes it great for cold weather use, and for people with dry skin. It has a fresh scent, although barely perceptible. Coverage is medium: This will work best on people with minor skin discolorations.

See how the BB Cream has fared on me:

 Bare skin

  One layer of EnCara BB Cream

It's a wee bit lighter than my skintone, but at least its yellowness somehow adjusts it to my natural undertone. In pictures, it leaves a faint white cast, yet it does not look too off in my opinion. What I do is I only apply a sheer layer on my skin and set it with a shade matching loose/pressed powder. With this technique, the white cast disappears. Of all the BB Creams I've encountered, this one has the lowest SPF content and that works for me because I've always had an issue with the chalkiness of BB Creams that are loaded with SPF.

As you can see, the BB Cream has evened out my skin tone, and I love how it made my skin look softer and smoother, and how it has improved its texture. It also helps tame down skin redness. One layer would suffice because its pigmentation is very good for a BB Cream.

 EnCara BB Cream set with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Pressed Powder

In my opinion, this is already foundation with the benefits of a BB cream. You can even use it on its own! This product helps cut your preparation time in half because it's a foundation, concealer, sunblock, and BB Cream in one.

Staying power is good: It stays put all day with minimal fading. However, I find that it makes my face a bit oily which is perhaps due to its thick and moisturizing consistency. This product may not be the best bet for people with oily skin.

I love using it during daytime or if I don't have to go to a very important occasion. What I wanna say is that it is a good everyday foundation/BB Cream. For important occasions, I still prefer traditional foundation. For me, this is one of the best Korean BB creams out there, second to my all- time favorite, Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion, because its undertone is yellow and it has superb concealing and skin- improving abilities, although I wish it comes in other shades. I also appreciate the fact that this BB Cream stays true to its claim: It delivers like a champ in the coverage department. If you're looking for a BB cream with great coverage, grab this!

  4. This sounds promising :) I've avoided BB creams because they're usually more cool-toned, making my face look ashy, apart from the white cast in person & in photos.
