I have a confession to make: I am not a big fan of BB creams. I initially loved it because it’s such a multitasking product, it has sun protection, moisturizing properties and even some nutrients care of plant extracts infused in the formulation, plus a decent coverage. Eventually, I was won over by its successor, the CC cream, because the latter provides better color correcting properties. But because it is the new year, I’m all for trying something new. Who knows, maybe I’ll go back to BB creams this year. 🙂
Maybelline welcomes a super new and super you this 2016 with their newest product, the Super BB cream. The Super BB Cream currently has the highest coverage (SPF 50 PA++++) out of all their products and provides protection against pollution, harmful UV rays, and unnatural looking coverage.
Yes, you read that right, makeup that protects you from pollution!!! The Super BB cream features a Mineral Guard Filter which leaves your skin free from the particles of pollution from our everyday city life.
Like Maybelline’s previous BB creams, Super BB is also a multi-tasking product, boasting 8-in-1 functions! Included in those 8 is how it offers full coverage, very different from the light coverage the previous ones had. For this post, I’ll be doing a short review, and announcing a giveaway!
Maybelline Super BB Cream Review
“The BB Cream that provides you with 8 benefits all in ONE! With the
Mineral Guard Filter that protects flawless skin from all city damage,
including UV, heat pollution, dust and more. This Super BB Cream
provides you with super coverage while also having SPF50 PA++++,
anti-oxidation, anti-pollution and anti-PM 2.5 properties.”
Price: Php 399
Variants: 01 Natural and 02 Medium
Features: (8-in-1 BB Cream)
- perfectly covers imperfection
- hides pores, redness, blemishes
- long lasting
- blocks UV rays with SPF 50 PA ++++
- Protects skin from pollution
- brightens and moisturizes skin
- smoothes skin
- evens skintone
Directions for Use:
Apply a thin layer of Super BB cream on skin using a brush, sponge or your fingertips. Can be used with or without a moisturizer.
The texture is a little runny, but it looks opaque. One application shows the full coverage the product is proud of, visibly hiding my green-purple veins. After a few seconds of blending, the cream dries up matte, but not dull.
As you can see, it doesn’t cake, and blends quite well. You can also see how the lines of my dry skin disappeared, and got replaced with a poreless matte finish.
To let you guys see the difference, I applied Maybelline Super BB Cream on half of my face, and left the other half bare.
The part with the Super BB cream is noticeably smoother, and more even toned. Redness is reduced, and less pores are visible.
Especially with my dark under eye area, you can see that the one with Super BB cream is brighter, and with less lines.
In the next photo, I applied the Super BB cream on my whole face. The finish is matte, without making my skin look dull or dry.
- has surprisingly good coverage for a BB cream
- evens out skin tone, though the more discolored parts need color correcting concealers
- visibly hides redness
- makes skin look smooth
- love the high SPF for days when I forget to put on sunscreen
- feels lightweight even with the full coverage.
- no need for touch ups
Overall, I really like this one because it has all the good things I love about BB creams, and more. The Mineral Guard Filter is definitely a big plus (perfect for commuters!!), as well as its moisturizing properties. I’d definitely repurchase if I run out, but I think one tube will last long because it doesn’t need much retouching.
