Review Spring and Snow UV White BB Cream SPF 50/PA++

Hello, lovelies~ In my previous post, the one where I displayed my skincare routine, I featured one of the BB Cream that I recently used. Meet the new BB cream, Spring and Snow UV White BB Cream. It is made in Korea and I bought it at Guardian for Rp 170,000 (if I'm not mistaken). The BB Cream comes in a black squeeze tube with a gold twist off cap at the end. It also comes with a separate black box that has the product's description and the ingredients list. I kinda liked the simplicity of this packaging as it's not too nauseatingly cute all the time. 

Right off the bat, I liked that it has SPF 50/PA++ so I can wear it on a daily basis, knowing that my bases are covered face is protected. It uses physical (Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide) and chemical  (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate) sunscreen, just like most of the other BB Creams. To make easier to blend, this BB Cream has dimethicone in it. Niacinamide is included in the contents as a whitening ingredient, but it also works as a sunscreen. It still has Fragrance, so people with sensitive skin should be more careful if they want to try this out. As for preservatives, it uses parabens and phenoxyethanol. It does have green tea extracts, lime fruit extracts and aloe extracts, but they are the last ingredients on the list, so I don't think it has any effects on the skin. 

When I first dispensed it out of the tube onto my fingertips, I noticed a that the scent is kinda like soft mixture of baby powder and green tea. The scent is really familiar, but I can't seem to figure out what it is. That is the best explanation that I can give you regarding the scent. I have no problems with the scent, not hating it, but not liking it, as well.  

The texture of this BB cream is slightly thick, kinda like something in between a lotion and a cream. Like most BB creams, this one only comes in one shade. I know, it's really troubling for those with deeper or darker skin tones. It has a light beige color with a hint of gray tinge to it.  However, I don't seem to look grey once I applied it on my face and blend it well. I find it too light for my skin tone when I first applied it, but a few minutes after it settles, it looks like my skintone.

Done with talking about the texture and appearance, I'll move on to talking about its performance on my face. I like that this product feels lightweight and not sticky on my face. However, it does look a little greasy, if not set with a powder. I felt that this BB Cream blends easily on my face, even when I used my fingers.

I thought it was going to be too light on my face, but it turns out that it has a sheer coverage. It wasn't able to cover my imperfections, but it does minimize the redness on my face. That's the most important thing for me! You can see more of the coverage on the picture below. Just click on the picture to see a larger version of it. 

I applied it on this video, if you would like to see. ^_^

Overall, I like this BB cream when I wanted to use something and not cover up my face. Sometimes, I just wanna go out just looking fresh and minimal makeup, but still protected from the sun.
Semoga ringkasannya cukup jelas ya~
Klik gambarnya aja kalo mo digedein. ^_^ 
The high sunscreen protection is something I really like from this BB cream. I think that by the time this BB cream runs out, I'll already be trying out other BB cream, so I don't think I'll repurchase this again.
