Review : ZA Skin Beauty Liquid Foundation SPF 18/PA ++

Lately, I stopped using my BB creams because the color from the SKIN79 VIP Gold has become a little off on my face. I look weird up to the point that it looks ashy. So, for the past week, I have been using ZA Skin Beauty Liquid Foundation. I bought it last month and didn't have the chance to try it then because my skin is behaving badly (peeling off and getting red on my cheeks).

Provides a natural, even finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and uneven skin tone. 

Contains as much hyaluronic acid as a bottle of essence.


How I Use It 
I squeeze about a 2-cm diameter of product on the back of my hand. Using a foundation brush, I dipped it on the product, take off the excess by patting it on a clean area on the back of my hand, then lightly sweep all over the face. Afterwards, I use a clean sponge to smooth out any streaks to achieve a smooth, flawless-looking face.

What I Like About It
  • I can easily find them in counters at Watsons or any department store in Jakarta
  • The bottle is a twist cap packaging with a small opening for the product to come out
  • The size of the bottle is small enough to take travelling
  • It matches my skin tone very well
  • It's blended easily with either a brush or fingers
  • So far it hasn't made me break out
  • This foundation has medium coverage. It's able to conceal my acne scars (non pitted acne scars)
  • Once applied and blended evenly, it feels lightweight as if I'm not wearing any foundation
  • It has SPF 18/PA ++ which makes it suitable to be used daytime
What I Hate About It
  • There are only 4 shades available
  • Although it says that it contains hyaluronic acid for moisture, it still manages to dry my skin out in a matter of around 4 hours
  • This isn't waterproof or sweatproof, so there is a chance of the foundation to melt off during hot, humid days

I would recommend this product to :
  • Someone who has light to medium skin tone with a yellow undertone
  • Someone who has normal to combination skin type
  • Someone who didn't mind the medium coverage

  1. This sounds like an interesting foundation, especially the minimizing pores and evening skin tone part! What's your all time favourite base/foundation??
