Catrice's BB Cream and Concealer Review

I'm in love with BB Cream! I never get tired of looking and buying every time I see one.

On my search for a good CC Cream, I found this Catrice brand. I honestly don't have any idea about their company and products but the sales attendant was so good in introducing the brand. She said that this brand is popular in European countries. Oh! One point! :) What made me decide to buy is. . . . its price. Their products are affordable! I hope this not just an introductory price. :)




Product to be reviewed: Catrice's Bb Cream
Price: 400 Pesos for 30 ml
Where to buy: SM Department Store
Where did I buy: SM Department Store (SM Bacoor)
For: Face




Catrice claims that this a 6-in-1 cream provides these benefits:

1. Balancing- hydrates the skin and reduces shine.
2. Correcting- minimizes the visibility of pores.
3. Protecting- contains UV filters
4. Illuminating- provides a radiant glow and a silky skin.
5. Covering- conceals skin imperfections
6. Moisturizing- with almond oil that treats dry and sensitive skin.

There is a variety of shades to choose from and I bought Light Beige.


Pogi Points:

1. It's matte, perfect for people who have oily skin. It controls oil for about 4-6 hours. 

2.  It's perfect for everyday use. No need to retouch. I apply this every 5 A.M. and go home at about 11 P.M. I just need to use blotting sheets in between to remove excess oil. I still look great. :)

3. What I love most is it doesn't have a white cast when taking pictures (with flash). So guys will not be afraid of camera flash. :P

4. The tube could last up to 6 months. I bought this last November of 2014 and use regularly from Mondays to Sundays. Proud to say, it's not fully consumed yet (March 2015).

5. Doesn't give me breakout.

6. It's affordable. With less than 500 Pesos, it can go a long way.

7. It has SPF 30. No need to put sunblock.


CLAIM CHECK:

1. Balancing
Check. It doesn't give shine on face, but you can feel that your skin is hydrated.

2. Correcting
Check. I always achieve poreless skin look! :)

3. Protecting- contains UV filters
I can't answer this. Haha.

4. Illuminating
Check. :)

5. Covering
Check. :) I like how it effectively covered my big pimple before.

6. Moisturizing
Check? Haha.

Downside:

I can't think of any downside for this. I just love it.

Here's the swatch when BB Cream is blended on hand. See? It perfectly suits my skin color.

I will give Catrice's BB Cream an AWESOME POGI POINTS of 5/5 


Since I fell in love with Catrice's BB Cream, I tried their concealer as well.

                                                                                   With Catrice Camouflage Concealer

Pogi Points:

1. I hate my dark circles! But I am thankful this concealer does instant effect. It brightens my eyes. It shows I completed an eight hour sleep even I only had four. Haha.

2. It serves its purpose of concealing pores and blemishes.

3. It's affordable and yet goes a long way.

Downside:

1. It gives white cast. So I am always hesitant when people take pictures of me with flash. I look terrible!

(With Flash)
Look at the right side! It gave a white cast. Imagine this on your face. Haha.


I will give Catrice's Camouflage Cream a  POGI POINTS of 3.5/5 
✓.

Hands down with their BB Cream! I will definitely repurchase it. :) On the other hand, though I like the coverage the concealer provides me, I am still disappointed with the white cast it gives in picture. It maybe perfect for everyday use but make sure not to take pictures with flash. ;)

 Tada! :)
