Review : Dr. Jart Silver Label BB Cream

Rejuvenating Blemish Base, whitening SPF35/PA++
This unique professional formula containing innovative active ingredients, concealing blemishes and activating skin rejuvenation. It soothes red, irritated skin while providing moisture to the skin. It can also be used as a make up base.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 1,780 for 50ml.

WEIGHT : 50 grams

SHADES : Available in only 1 shade ideal for fair skintones.

* provides medium coverage.You can skip concealer if you don't have dark circles & blemishes. I love the coverage compared to Skinfood BB Creams. Effect is like I'm using Maybelline's gel foundation.
* high spf - you can also skip sunblock!
* scent is not bothering
* good oil control. Suits my combination skin.
* brightens my complexion and matches my skintone.
* i love the flip top cap! Much easier to use since I'm always in a hurry.
* been using this for 1 week and so far no break-outs.

* not locally available.
* kinda hard to blend since texture is thicker than Skinfood.
* shade doesn't suit darker skintones.

EDIT 5/24/10: Dr. Jart is now in the Philippines! Check out Manila Beauty Blog's post for the prices and available variants.
Note: Dr. Jart is also available at Mall of Asia Dept. Store. Thanks to May for the info!

I still use my moisturiser underneath to make it easier to blend. I apply the BB cream on small dots around the face, blend with Bare Natural's Foundation brush and blend again using my fingertips.

The best BB cream I've tried so far! I really love the coverage...

5 out of 5.

Khymm maganda ba yung skin food na bb cream? whats better the mushroom one or the other one? yung walang shimmer meron ba?

im not comfortable with my faceshop and i think it sucks because i always tend to look like a ghost whenever i wear it.

CHARRY said...

K said...

@girlwithglasses - jing, Skinfood has no shimmer po, compared to Dr. jart, it has a sheer coverage.

Chrissy said...

Looks good, I feel like checking this out. Too bad I have no money.. oh well

K said...

sis i dont know if this is too much to ask but pwede pahingi swatch sa face :) haha like before bb cream and after

Miss Shopcoholic said...

@k - i tried taking pics sa before and after bb cream but di gaanong kita yung difference eh. my cam sucks hehe

Anastacia said...

I have a lot of BB creams but non of them suit for darker skin tone!

Musicalhouses said...

It seems to blend quite well, and it looks like it has a nice texture! It's kind of annoying that BB creams seem to come in only 1 or 2 shades. I've never tried one because of the lack of shades...:(

Abby said...

waaaahhh. the brightening effect looks good on your skin! i want one too! but I was discouraged with BB creams since SkinFood's Gingko gave me allergies after a week

AskMeWhats said...

Miss Shopcoholic said...

@vanilla - too bad it broke you out sis. Regarding the NYX megashine gloss, it doesnt smell weird unlike their lipsticks =)
