Finding a foundation that does not disturb my sensitive skin and has the right amount of coverage to hide my rosacea is an almost impossible task. All foundations I have tried from luxury to more affordable brands were disappointment after disappointment. So since 2 years ago I have been using the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. And as was coming to an end, I decided to go to Sephora to buy another bottle. You cannot understand my despair when I got there and saw they did not have it in my shade (which by the way is 52 Vanilla). But I needed a new foundation regardless so I decided to invest in a new one but my fear was huge. One of Sephora's employees may have noticed my face of despair and offered to help. Normally I do not like any kind of help with cosmetic products; the tendency to sell me the most expensive products in the store is massive. Then we started talking and I explained my skin problems and my visits to dermatologists. And so the employer came to the conclusion that this BB cream was the best option. I was reluctant because I needed something with a medium to full coverage and it seemed to me that a BB cream would not provide me that. I have never been so wrong. As soon as he began to blend it into my skin I was amazed. It has an absolutely beautiful coverage. I was overjoyed and I did not hesitate and bought it without even knowing the price of it.
When I got home, I decided to research a little bit on the brand. Erborian is a Korean brand of cosmetics focused on skin care, so the "foundations" that they produce are infused with skin care ingredients. I thought, great, it was really what I needed.
Now when it comes to the BB Cream itself, as I mentioned has a medium coverage and a satin moisturizing finish. Usually I prefer a luminous finish but I confess that I love this more skin-like finish. In terms of durability, I never used it more than 6/7 hours and remained on my skin during all this time without any finishing powder. I did not notice any oiliness, but it is also worth saying that my skin is dry and I never get oily. The only negative aspect is the shade selection, just two colors and both on the lighter side. It is indeed a Korean brand, so it is understandable that the variety of shades is more on the lighter side. Personally it is a plus to me as I have pale skin and I cannot find many foundations in lighter shades, but people with deeper skin tones have no chance with this BB Cream. The price is also not very inviting given that it is a BB cream, but it is worth the money.
Would I repurchase this? Of course! My skin has adapted well and gives me the coverage I need. What can I ask more?
