Freshel UV Skincare BB Cream review

Who doesn’t love 2 in 1 products? It saves you time especially when you are in a hurry getting ready. One makeup tip I can give you is to NEVER skip sunscreen. I personally love a product that acts as a sunblock while at the same time gives you enough coverage like a BB cream.

 Freshel UV Skincare BB cream in Natural Beige #1

I used to layer a moisturizer, sunscreen, makeup primer and a bb cream. During my counter takeover at Kate Tokyo, this was the first product that caught my eye. I love BB creams! But BB cream with a high spf like a sunblock? Even better! I immediately swatched it, and fell in love! But the real test is wearing it on the face... the whole day!
Read on to know what i think about it. 

Skin caring while covering. With a moisturizing function that infuses moisture and a protecting function that wraps and seals moisture. This product keeps skin moist as long as it is worn. It also protects the skin from harmful UV rays. Fragrance-free.

With moisture ingredients : double collagen, hyaluronic acid, niacin, apricot extract and kiwi extract.

50 grams

#1 Natural Beige; #2 Medium Beige

I am very particular with the scent of the products that I am using, and I prefer the unscented ones. This product however, doesn’t have that typical sunblock scent.

Has spf 43 and acts as your sunblock already. 

Non-sticky and feels lightweight on the face.

Dries to a semi-matte finish. Keeps my skin matte for a few hours. My t-zone started to shine on the 4th hour.

Easy to spread and blend. Doesn’t look patchy and doesn’t accentuate pores. 

Photographs well. Used it a lot of times and there is no white cast

It has medium coverage, and can cover slight imperfections. 

Only 2 shades available. The lightest shade which is Natural beige is  perfect for my NC20 skintone. 

If you have a dry skintype, you may find this a bit drying. I recommend NOT to skip your moisturizer. 

Here's my FOTD’s using the Freshel UV BB cream, then used concealer on my undereyes and set with Coty Loose powder. That's it for my face base =)

Some may find it expensive (php 960) for a tube, but a little goes a long way. I think with everyday use, this will last me 3-6 months. Aside from that, there is no need to buy a  separate primer, sunblock and bb cream, so in the end, you get to save with just 1 product. :)

Till next time,
