It is time for another BB cream review :D After having posted a lot of lip products recently, I discovered some pictures of products I didn’t review yet. This post will be about Mamonde’s Total Solution BB cream. Mamonde is again a brand part of the Amore Pacific group. Mamonde comes from the french word “ma monde”, which means “my world”.
This BB cream aims at whitening, wrinkle care and sun protection. These are basically the three factors every BB cream tries to achieve. This BB cream contains a minearl complex, which should provide the anti aging effect. The mineral complex is said to engage in the collagen generation and elastin metabolism, and the mineral water says to be beneficial for purifying and lifting skin. Secondly, this BB cream contains several natural ingredients called “Smart Flower Complex” providing the whitening effect. This means, most of the natural ingredients are from different flowers, like tuberose, thistle and edelweiss. It contains arbutin aswell.
The BB cream contains SPF20/PA+ which is great, too. And last, but not least, this BB cream claims to be moisturizing, which was one of the main reasons I wanted to try this BB cream.
Unfortunaltely the packaging of this travel size BB tube is only in korean. the cardbox has a reflective material, which makes it a bit hard to take pictures with flash :( The tube itself contains 30 ml BB cream and has a screw cap. It has a pink color, but the rest of the design is rather simple and not especially creative or cute.
The oil controll is quite normal and not really super, if you have already oily skin. I personally didnt have problems with my dry skin. This BB cream is a light BB cream, compared to thicker BB creams like Missha’s Perfect cover BB. It gives a nice glow, but has only low to medium coverage. On the other hand it is very natural and easy blendable.
All in all, what I liked about this BB cream, was the light feel and the nice glow it provides. I didn’t actually like the coverage and somehow the staying power doesn’t convince me too much. If you are looking for a glowy, moisturizing BB cream with a light coverage though, you can try this. I bought it at www.testerkorea.com
for 6900 Won (~7 US$). It’s quite some time ago I ordered this BB cream and by know Mamonde has a new BB cream called Total soultion Moisture BB cream. I would assure it will be similar to this one, but I don’t know of course. Did anyone try Mamonde BB creams and if yes, which is your favourite?
