I have always preferred light-coverage foundations, tinted moisturizers and BB creams over full-coverage foundations– because I like to see my skin through my finishing products, and I definitely prefer a natural finish. Matte foundations don't appeal to me, nor do overly dewy finishes. I prefer a dewy, but natural finish that perfects, rather than conceals, the skin. I really love Erborian's CC Crème (Reviewed HERE), and was therefore very excited to try their Erborian Liquid BB Crème Au Ginseng Cushion Compact & Erborian BB Crème au Ginseng. I only wish that Erborian had a wider range of colors so that more people could enjoy their lovely BB Crèmes. I wear Clair in both formulas, which is a perfect match for my cool-toned skin, and it never oxidizes on my skin.Erborian Liquid BB Crème Au Ginseng Cushion Compact ($48.00 for 0.49 oz. from Erborian and Sephora): This Liquid BB Crème glides across the skin effortlessly, deposits color evenly and it neither settles into, nor emphasizes, pores and fine lines. It feels very light on the skin and the formula is hydrating. It offers light buildable coverage with a natural slightly dewy finish, and it lasts all day on my normal-combination skin. Skin shows through, but appears more even in tone and perfected, and it leaves behind no greasy residue. It has a light fresh scent that fades after a few minutes. Available in two shades: Clair and Doré (both shades swatched below).
According to Erborian,
An easily portable, liquid BB cream enriched with ginseng for a flawless-looking complexion and immediate hydration. Held in a soft cushion, Liquid BB Crème helps to enhance the complexion and immediately moisturize your skin. Enriched with ginseng, known in Korea for its smoothing properties, the formula provides sheer coverage and helps to even out skin tone, conceal imperfections, reduce the visible signs of aging, and provide a feeling of freshness with instant hydration. Layer as you wish for more buildable coverage throughout the day.
Directions: Press the cushion gently with the sponge to release Liquid BB Crème. Pat on or smooth over the face.
Erborian BB Crème au Ginseng ($39.00 for 1.5 oz. from Erborian, Sephora, Feel Unique, Space NK UK and Soko Glam): This BB Crème is lightweight on the skin, but it offers buildable coverage. Like their cushion BB Crème, this one also glides across the skin effortlessly, deposits color evenly, and it neither emphasizes, nor settles into, fine lines and pores. With a lighter application, skin shows through, and it appears more even in tone and texture. It leaves skin hydrated with a lovely luminescence, though it is described as mattifying, and it does not leave behind any sort of greasy residue.
It definitely creates the coveted my-skin-but-better look, while the buildable coverage allows for the concealment of scars, sun-spots, and other imperfections that one might seek to conceal. It also includes a broad-spectrum SPF 20, but I wear an additional sunscreen since I never wear less than an SPF 30. It also has a light fresh scent that fades after a few minutes. Available in three shades: Clair, Doré and Caramel.
According to Erborian,
A five-in-one BB Cream made with ginseng for flawless-looking coverage and protection. This lightweight, five-in-one primer provides a buildable and mattifying coverage for your perfect base to be worn alone or under your favorite makeup look. With three shades formulated to match wide ranges of skin tones, the creamy texture blends easily and helps to minimize the look of pores and skin imperfections for a primed canvas. Broad-spectrum SPF 20 helps to shield skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, and the result is a protected complexion that feels soft with a velvety, non-oily finish.
Ginseng is ideal for skincare formulation, offering moisturizing and smoothing properties. During the growth process, the root pulls many nutrients from the soil making it a prized ingredient for skincare. Erborian’s ginseng takes four to six years to reach maturity before it can be harvested.
