Luview Whitening BB Capsule

While checking the entries for our giveaway contest, I got some questions regarding the Luview Whitening BB Capsule and I figured out maybe I should do a review for you. I hope that all questions will be answered in this post.

From Luview:

How to use: At the final stage of the skin care, take appropriate volume and  apply for light pounding. Makeup base and foundation are not required to use separately.

I have been a loyal user of bb cream for quite a long time now. I’ve tried several bb creams already from different brands like skinfood, skin79, lioele and so on. But this is so far the most unique bb cream. Want to know why? Keep reading!

PACKAGING
 Also unlike most bb creams that come in a pump, this has a safety lock (twist to close/ twist to open)  which is so far the most convenient packaging for a bb cream especially when you like to travel! And oh, the packaging is very sleek and slim.
From Lina's review

Color/ Formulation/consistency/finish:

Before I finally had this bb cream, I already read some reviews from my blogger friends who also do blog reviews for Luview. They received this bb cream long time ago and they totally freaked out when they saw the white cream for the first time. Thank God for their reviews, atleast I know what I should expect. 

 When I first swatched this bb cream in the back of my hands, I freaked out . Not because it has white cream-like consistency but because I thought it would be a plain white cream. This bb cream comes in a white cream with brown particles in it.


Then I tried blending it out and Oh my goodness, this bb cream turns into yellowish/brownish color. Magic! From there, I found out that the brownish particles are the color or shade of the bb cream. The technology was amazing! This will help  the bb cream to blend naturally on your skin


When you blend it out even more, you’ll notice that it contains tiny shimmers. This can be either be good for you or bad. 

For ladies who are not as flawless as Korean ladies, this tends to emphasize the bumps going on your face. (Recommendation: If you’re having a breakout, I advise you not to put this on areas where you have acne/pimples. You can put this on certain areas, as shown in the pic below, on your face to make it looks brighter)

BUT, if you already had a beautiful skin (just like most Koreans) this will make your skin looks even more beautiful and healthy looking! The micro shimmers will give your skin an illusion of radiant, porcelain-like skin. Definitely, a bb cream for dewy looking skin!

Since this comes in a light cream, you’ll have no problem in blending it out.

COVERAGE

Since it has a watery-like consistency, don’t expect that this will cover your acne marks. For me, this bb cream works very well in brightening the face instead of covering the flaws.

Additional Benefits:

Whitening: According to the packaging, this contains white flowers that help whiten and brighten the face. I haven’t seen the whitening effect yet since I’ve been using it only for few days. But yes, this will help brightens up your face.

Sebum Control and Moisture supply: I don’t know how long I will need to retouch my face if I use this alone but when I set it with powder, I usually blot my face 2-3 x a day.

PROS:
- Packaging is ideal for travelling
- Unique (I know, sometimes it is very tiring to see the same thing in all bb creams)
- Sheer coverage (for people who want it sheer)
- Not cakey
- Little goes a long way
- blends well
- Gives a natural, porcelain-like skin
- works if you like dewy looking skin
- brightens the face

CONS
- sheer coverage (if you prefer medium-heavy)
- has micro-shimmers (will emphasize the bumps on your face)
- not available locally

Would I recommend this: Yes! Definitely the most unique bb cream I ever tried.
