Review: The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream

3. June 2015


It’s been some time since my last BB cream review, although BB creams are why I started blogging in the frst place. There are so many to try, especially in the asian market, and The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream is one of them. This BB cream is supposed to be a total skin treatment with lifting, moisturizing and correcting properties. and was send to me by a new Korean cosmetics online store named Q-depot.

The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream

The Face Shop is a Korean brand that “shares the benefits of nature”. It launched in 2003 in Korea and tries to bring together science and nature in their cosmetics products. They have a huge range of items and most of the items I tried from this brand I actually did like. The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream is an all-rounder BB cream formulated with omega-3 and vita skin complex to nourish and moisturize your skin. The BB cream comes in 2 shades: 01. bright beige and 02. natural beige. I received shade 02. The BB cream also has SPF37 and PA++ and has some sun protection properties.

The Face shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream is also available in two sizes. You can get either a smaller tube of 20 ml, or the larger tube as I’m showing here with 40 ml of product. Both versions are packed in tubes with a pump dispenser, which is the best way to pack a BB cream in my opinion (apart from Pacts/Cushions). The signature color of this BB cream is purple and the tube looks quite elegant in my eyes. It is not something fancy or super cute, but it looks nice on the shelf, too.

The cardboard box packaging contains English and Korean description. You can find the ingredients on COSDNA, too. They are mostly green labelled and safe to use. Since this BB cream has a SPF 37/PA++ it contains titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate for UV protection. It also contains niacinamide and other some plant extracts and moisturizing ingredients. This BB cream has a shelf life of 12 months after opening.

As you can see, the tube has a pump dispenser which is protected by a clear, purple colored plastic cap. The amount of one pumping is usually enough for the whole face, let’s say 1.5 pumps if you need some corrections and whant to cover your neck, too. It is super easy to use and the pump works prefectly fine.

Below you can see a swatch of The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream in shade 02. natural beige. I swatched it on my hand. It looks quite light in the image and also lighter than my skintone, but can be blended in to fit. The consistency of this BB cream is quite creamy. It has a matte finish and a medium-high coverage, which can be layered. The BB cream has a light floral scent, like most BB creams do.

Below you can see my face before and after the application of the BB cream.  I don’t have skin troubles in terms of many pimples, but my skin is not even colored and I have some redness here and there. I have used my regular creams/skincare in the “before” image already. After using the BB cream my skin looks more even and the color differences of my skin are corrected. Although it has a matte finish and my skin is usually quite dry it didn’t get flaky and looked nice even after 6 hours. Also, it didn’t have a white or greyish cast after using it. The texture isn’t heavy either, despite the fact that the BB cream has a creamy consitency.

The Face Shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream

My conclusion for The Face shop Face It Power Perfection BB Cream is, that this is a good and solid BB cream and nice for daily use. If you are looking for a BB cream with matte finish you might want to try this, even with nomal/dry skintypes. I would not say that it is the most moisturizing BB cream I have tried, but it isn’t heavy and isn’t drying. Nevertheless, I would not skip using your regular skincare creams before :D

You can get this BB cream at Q-Depot for 25.79 US$. The smaller tube of 20 ml costs only 15.29 US$, which is quite a regular price for BB creams of that size. They offer free worldwide shipping from 69 US$ onwards. Also, they have a promotion were you can get 5 US$ coupon upon signing up for a minimum purchase of 69 US$.

It is also available here:

W2Beauty for 25.97US$ (use coupon code berries10 for additional 10% off and free shipping) for 20.74US$ for 19.03€

    Frl. Schnee, thanks for the review. Quite informative. I was actually looking a nice Korean BB Cream and it helps me to find one now. Actually i did shopped at earlier and they are really good at customer support, offers free shipping above $69 and thats a good point. I love the color and easy navigation of their website.

    I love bbcream reviews! This one actually looks like a hair product to me hehe. It’s great to see a medium to high coverage bb cream on the market, especially as I have skin issues ATM. If only they made darker tones!

    Btw I’m having a kawaii box giveaway, I would love it if you entered! I get so stressed when I hold giveaways because I’m so scared people won’t enter :P. I wonder if other bloggers feel the same!

    • Frl. Schnee 3. June 2015 at 16:03

      Oh yes, it would have been great if they had more shades :/ But the finish is quite nice, although I normally fear that matte finish makes my skin look drier. But this one is ok. By the way, I already entered your giveaway. The items look so cute!! ♥ Don’t get stressed :D

    This BB looks like it has really decent coverage! I’m surprised that’s shade #2 though, it looks very light.

  • Bethany 4. June 2015 at 8:48

    I’ve gotta review this one too. :D It’s my favourite BB cream since my Missha Perfect Cover. I like that it doesn’t make me shiny.

  • Mizu 4. June 2015 at 9:09

    That looks great!! It’s been so long since I used any BB cream, it’s great to see them again :D

  • Martina 4. June 2015 at 18:35

    omg, this bb cream looks pretty amazing ** it really gives off the every day use vibe ** i don’t really use matte bb creams in the summer, but i really really want to buy this *___*

    I am always looking for recommendations concerning asian BB-Creams and I think I might give this one a try. It looks great on your skin :)

  • MissLovelyAttitude 4. June 2015 at 21:57

    this is a bbcreme for me :) Love the medium to high coverage :) I’ll have to check weather I can use it since my skin is quiete tanned atm :D

  • moi+sanom 5. June 2015 at 19:50

    it is so interesting for me to read reviews of products I already have :) It seems that even though we describe this bb slightly different we came to almost the same conclusion! I still dont know how it doesnt accentuate flakes though since it isnt super dewy or very hydrating. It must be magic ;)

  • Sharlynn Ng 6. June 2015 at 10:00

    Great in depth review! I’ve owned this BB cream before in the smaller 20ml size and I really loved it. For me I didn’t find it to be matte in finish but more of a natural luminous one that was a bit dewy. Anyway I always set my BB creams with powder as I have oilier skin! Glad to see it works for you really well!

  • Natalie 10. June 2015 at 18:44

    I got a free sample of this bb cream with my last purchase from the face shop…. need to try it now!

  • Francine Farmer 11. June 2015 at 1:31

    Thank you for introducing me to this product and to :-) I’m going to investigate right now!

  • Ari 28. June 2015 at 8:25

    I have this BB cream as well and I love the coverage of it. I just wish it had more shades because the lightest one, which I have, is a bit too light but the darker one is too dark…

  • 14. January 2016 at 13:17

    this can be a bbcreme for me personally :) Love the medium to high coverage :) I’ll need to check weather I’m able to utilize it since my skin is quiete tanned atm :D

    I love this BB cream too. I have a combination of dry and oily skin but this BB cream is perfect for my face. And also, it gives me a long lasting fresh look so I don’t need to retouch every hour. I used Apricot Beige.
