During the past year or two, the beauty market had seen an upsurge of BB products released from both Asian and Western brands alike. My foray into BB creams was not new, either the product was too greasy, too light in coverage, or shades too fair (imagine they are originally a Korean invention). UV PLUS HP Multi-Perfection BB Cream by Clarins had just been released a while ago and was quickly touted among the crowd as 'the hero BB Cream'. I was sent this product and after playing with this for sometime, I'm happy to report that it really delivers it's claims, read on why!
過去幾年市面的 BB霜推陳出新, 熱潮已經衝出亞洲, 我不是第一次使用 BB霜, 它們大多數不是有點油膩, 遮瑕度不夠高, 就是色調太白 (不要忘記 BB霜原是韓國研發的啊). Clarins 最近推出的 UV Plus HP清透美白BB霜很快便被譽為 "hero BB霜", 我把玩了它一會兒後, 很高興和大家宣佈: 呢支 BB Cream 真係好好好掂呀, 睇埋落去你就會知佢有幾掂!!!
First off, the product is embedded with more than adequate sun protection - an SPF of 40! In an urban environment, I only feel safe with products having an SPF degree over 35 and more. This BB cream by Clarins will have you covered from a day in the city, an outing in suburbs and when traveling abroad.
首先, 呢支 BB霜有成 SPF 40度既防曬效能, 無論係出街返工, 戶外活動, 去旅行都好, 所有場合都可以一支搞掂! 我不嬲都偏好防曬度數 > SPF 30 既產品, 夠保護丫麻!
Application of this BB Cream is a breeze, the texture feels light on the skin, and it has just the right amount of viscosity so it makes application very smooth, absolutely no tugging on the skin. My face also needs very little, just 2/3 size of a kidney bean of the product and it's enough to last a whole day.
其次, 呢支 BB霜塗搽很容易, 質感不厚重, 水分剛好, 塗搽時不會令皮膚有拉扯的感覺. 只需要 2/3 的紅腰豆份量便足夠整個面使用, 效果仲可以保持一整天都不脫妝!
The BB Cream currently comes in one color and it spreads evenly (see below pics). The shade leans neither pink nor yellow, which is perfect for any neutral skin tones. There's also enough moisture in it so it doesn't look dry.
Clarins UV Plus HP清透美白BB霜現時有一種色調, 貼近 neutral 膚色, 不會偏粉紅或偏黃. 推開時很均勻, 不會cake住, 水份充足, 不會乾.
It also dries to a matte and velvety finish with absolutely no streaks or caking. Again, "blendability" is a keyword here. It also evens out my skin tone with one thin layer, only a tiny dab of concealer under my eyes and I'm good to go! It also corrects any redness on my skin, thanks to the blackcurrant bud extract.
BB霜推開後很平滑, 連朱絲馬跡的痕跡都無, blend 得出奇的好. 還有, 它令我暗淡無光的膚色即時均勻, 收飾泛紅的地方 (多得它的 blackcurrant bud 成份), 只須在眼下落少少遮瑕膏就出得門口了.
Coverage wise, I put it to test by drawing a line using an eyeliner, here's how it looked before applying the BB Cream:
Here's how it looks after applying the BB Cream on the right hand side, pretty much the eyeliner was covered up! Holy, I don't have to be afraid of dull and tired skin anymore, it just won't happen when I use this BB cream! The coverage, smoothness and yet light texture had won me over completely, I'm a convert of it now. It's pretty much an anti-fatigue-looking product!
然後我塗上這支 BB霜在右手邊, 那條眼線徹底地消失!! 噢賣吉, 有了佢我以後就可以 say bye bye 暗淡無光的皮膚, 不論在遮瑕能力, 輕薄的質感, 平滑的觸感, 以上各項都令我驚嘆. 以後有幾疲倦, 有佢就唔洗怕.
Bottomline: a must-try if you are looking for a BB Cream that is high coverage with smooth application, that can even out skin tone, and offers high sun protection, this one by Clarins is a winner and a keeper in my books!
總結: 一定要試! 尤其如果你係需要遮瑕度高, 質感薄, 可以均勻膚色的BB 霜, 呢支完全掂晒!
