FOTD + REVIEW: UGBang Premium Blemish Balm SPF 30++


Packaging Comes with a Box.

What is Blemish Balm Cream (BB Cream)?

Since this is my first blog/review on BB Cream, I'll quickly do a info/facts rundown on what it is supposed to do:
- Pore coverage
- Oil control
- Skincare
- Makeup base
- Foundation (skin coverage)
- Sun protection ( from SPF25 PA++ to SPF50, it varies)
- Anti-Wrinkle
- Whitening

"It was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes. Additionally, BB cream encourages skin regeneration and helps to maintain youthful skin. " - From Wikipedia



Brand Introduction
I rarely see this brand being reviewed so I will do a short intro for those who have never heard of it. UGBang is a Korean Ginseng Skin Care Company. I was introducted to this brand on my first visit to Korea. During this visit, I had a chance to purchase many products from the line for a special discounted price. I love this brand and their skincare products so much ever since. Over the years, I repurchased their products in Hong Kong because I didn't have time to drop by Korea often. All of their items contains Ginseng as a natural ingredient to help skin regenerate, moisturize, brighten and many other functions.

Review:
When I first got this product it was about $35USD. I fell it love and when I went to repurchase it in HK, it came up to be $360HKD. *sigh. I did buy a lot of other items in their line and became their VIP. They give out A LOT (and I truly mean a lot) of free sample when you purchase from their HK location in person. I got a free travel size BB cream of SPF 45 and 10+ sample packages (each sample package includes a mask, aqua cream and peeling gel). These sample sizes almost add up to an actual size product. *yayyyy*


Swatch of the BB Cream

On to the BB cream.
Color: As you see in the swatch photo above, when you first squeeze it out of the tube, it appears to be super dark. When you first blend it, it appears extremely white but it's my HG BB cream because it blends into your skin tone color within ten minutes.
Note: This BB cream is very light compared to Skin79. My face skin color is lighter than NC15 (especially in the winter time) so if you are a regular Skin79 BB cream user, this might not work for you.


Coverage: The coverage is amazing, I only wear this and translucent powder as I simply use the BB cream as my foundation. I don't need to apply additional foundation to achieve a flawless look (i have good skin to start with - rarely any pimples or blemish). Most of the minor imperfections on my cheeks and tiny freckles I have around my nose are hidden when I wear this BB Cream. I hardly even use concealer for my under eye bags.

Texture: I find it rather thick on the moisturizing side, so you don't need to use too much of the product. Thankfully it does not clog pores, highly recommend it if you are the dry/combination skin type. The finish is not shimmery, which I like. :)

Overall: ♥♥♥♥
Product: 5/5 ♥ Fits with description perfectly
Packaging: 4/5 ♥ I didn't like the grey packaging, why can't it be pink like their other two BB creams in their line?!
Price: 3/5 ♥ I'm pretty used to paying $15USD-$22USD for BB creams, this product does fall into the pricier range. But, I did purchase this product 2x.

I really like UGBang, although their price is pretty high, especially their Total Serum. I think I have soft ears, I got really convinced by the sales rep there.

Thank you everyone for commenting on my last blog post. I love comments :) I either replied you right in that post or went over to your blog to post a comment. :)

I finally received my EOS Pink Flower lenses from a reliable circle lenses company. I'm resisting from mentioning their company name because I know it's probably not their fault for what's happening with the lenses. (I'm waiting on their reply actually) I ordered these lenses back in July.  I noticed that when you waiting for something so long, you anticipate more and more. So I was very disappointed. And I ordered these lenses in hopes to get them before my birthday, so now I have to find another company that sells Pink circle lenses and have instocks for (-8.00) -- I'M SO BLIND, I know.

Please help me out :) I need some recommendations to get these contact lenses. Thank you!

Thank you for dropping by!! *I feel loved!
