Well isn’t that a name and a half?!
Today I will be reviewing the Care Zone Doctor Solution Nordenau Water BB Cream which can be purchased from Olive Young in Korea!
This BB cream is a necessity in my make-up box, I love the texture and it’s affect on my skin. I have used it for around a year and a half after one of my favorite beauty bloggers recommended it.
BB is short so Blemish Balm so I use it as a way to make my skin smooth and add a layer of cover over my concealer which can look patchy. The cream does a fantastic job as it gives my skin a lovely shine; the finish is a little dewy but in my opinion that makes my skin look healthy.
The coverage is okay… I wouldn’t say it’s super long lasting, but that is why I use it as a base. It moisturises my skin and then kind of disappears which exactly what I want as my foundation is obvious enough.
One of the negative points of this BB cream is that it comes in only one colour. So unfortunately if you have darker skin this BB cream will not be available to match your tone. However, for Asian and pale skin tones I have heard great things by everyone that wears it, as it blends in well with your skin colour.
This formula is specifically for DRY-TROUBLED skin, which is why I love it. I have dry sensitive skin, which tends to get angry when my hormones are playing up. However, people that have oily skin, unfortunately this might not be the best fit for you.
I still think the BB cream could be useful for people with oily- troubled skin as the dewy finish does fade throughout the day. However, because I have dry skin I can’t give you the best recommendation. I would say try it and see how it goes!
I love this BB cream and think it is one of the best creams out there (it does not come in a cushion form). However, because of it’s lack of longevity and one colour I can’t give it a perfect 5, I give it a 4.5 out of 5!
