Hanskin Glossy BB cream

leave a comment »

I am going to do beauty reviews more regularly again, simply because I have a lot of products and I do like to keep track of what I think of the product when I was using it. Of course, hopefully it benefits you guys as well :p

Today’s star is Hanskin’s Glossy BB cream!

I am sure everyone is already familiar with BB creams and need no further introduction of the product. Hanskin is a popular Korean brand and their BB creams have been raved by many.


This BB cream was included in a sample set that I got, containing x other BB creams, 10mL each. I had thought that it would be a good idea to try out Hanskin’s BB creams and also these little guys are super convenient to carry around when I am traveling!


*My preference is to have a natural looking finish, slightly dewy so please keep that in mind while reading the below thoughts!*

Coverage: I find that the coverage is rather sheer but enough to even out my skintone which is what I want to achieve for a normal workday. If I need more coverage, I would either mix this BB cream with a higher coverage base or use a pressed powder on top of my base.

Texture and how to apply it: It spreads rather easily. I find that using fingers or sponge works out fine gives the same effect so it’s up to your preference!

Oil-control: I have saw a few reviews online saying that the oil control is good but sadly, it isn’t the case for me. It lasts for 3-4 hours before starting to shine.



The photo on the left is taken in the morning before I leave for work while the one on the right is after a day of work.

I am not sure if you can see the difference (!) but I just wanted to make a note here that I blotted during mid-day and touched up with pressed powder. Otherwise, I don’t think the BB cream alone can last that long considering the hot and humid weather in Singapore.

Who would I recommend this to: Anyone who is looking for something to even out your skin tone, with dry-combi skin and likes the glowy look!

Do you have this BB cream? If so, let me know what you think of it! xx
