Lioele Water Drop BB Cream

After using the Skin79 Gold BB Cream for a couple of months (5 days a week), I had more than the usual amount of breakouts. I wasn’t sure if it was the Skin79, but I decided to switch over to the Lioele Water Drop BB Cream. I really do like this BB Cream a lot, but it isn’t the one for me.

Lioele says this product forms water drops when you apply and indeed, it does, but they are not very noticeable. It’s a bit style over substance feature that many moisturizing BB creams boast. I do think this BB Cream is somewhat moisturizing, very lightweight and refreshing. It feels really smooth and light as if you aren’t wearing anything at all. I do not get oily skin anymore so it doesn’t become shiny on me nor do I need to blot. Then again, I only wore this in autumn and cold months. It also does not have a noticeable grey or coloured cast, and I didn’t find it cakey. Both things I found with the Skin79 Gold.

The downside of this BB cream is that no matter how natural and smooth it feels, it doesn’t do much else: it’s got very little coverage, no anti aging properties and no whitening properties. I like the feel of it, but it doesn’t justify itself in my skin care routine so I don’t think I will repurchase.

My skin type: Normal/Dry with occasional small breakouts. MAC NC20.
Skincare routine: Morning – Wash with plain water, rose water toner, Aveeno SPF moisturizer, BB Cream. Night – Facial bar cleanser, vitamin C serum, rose water toner, jojoba oil.

Pros:

  • Moisturizing and light on skin
  • Feels soft and not oily
  • SPF27++

Cons:

  • Very little to no coverage. Covers a bit of redness, but not much else.
  • No whitening or anti-aging properties
  • Availability issues as with most Korean BB creams.

Price: $22.80CAD (tax included) at Pacific Mall, Toronto. Can be found for cheaper online e.g. eBay.

Conclusion: This product is only good if you have good or normal/dry skin with very few other skin issues. If you have minimal acne scarring and don’t want coverage, this is for you. Since I do want to lighten some of my dark spots, it is doubtful I will be purchasing this again even though I do love the feel of this BB Cream.
