Nature Republic’s Photoshot 3D Mousse BB comes in a package with a lot of description and information about the product. The text is in English and Korean.
Shade No. 02 is the darker shade they provide. It comes in tin with a pump dispenser. The pump is protected by a clear plastic cap. This is a bit of a disadvantage, but I’ll will explain later.
The packaging is purple colored and looks simple and not special at all. If you push the pump the BB cream comes out of the dispenser in form of a fine foam. Now here is the problem: If you push too much you’ll get A LOT of foam. It is basically impossible to use it all for one face only. Therefore you have to push only a little. Also, a lot of product stays on the dispenser opening and some additional foam is created afterwards still. That means if you put on the cap directly after usage, this foam will mess up all the cap from the interior, and since it is a clear plastic cap, it is visible, too! Not too nice :/
The BB cream itself is very light due to the foamy texture. It is easy to apply and to blend with the skin. I would say coverage is not medium to full, but sheer to medium. It is buildable to a degree. If you put too much it will settle into fine lines. I didn’t like the smell either. I expected a scent of roses, but it was another scent which I can’t describe. I just didn’t like it. Nevertheless the scent is not a big deal, since it wears off pretty fast.
Generally this is a nice BB cream with an interesting texture. I never had a foamy BB creme before. It is really light and performs nicely on the skin, if you don’t have the need for high coverage. I guess it is really a nice BB cream if you live somewhere with humid weather. It has a good SPF, too. Also, I applied it with my hands, thus I don’t know if it is more buildable by using a puff.
The product costs US$ 16.75 at W2Beauty. If you use my link or the sponsor code 088505 for registration at W2Beauty you’ll get a 5.00 $ voucher after registration. You can use this voucher immediately for minimum order of US$ 30. But they have such a variety of products, that it becomes much to easy to spend that money, haha.
