Review of Dr. Jart Silver Label BB Cream

2 Apr

Every once in awhile, I stumble across a product that is just so ridiculously awesome, I can hardly even contain myself when I try to talk about it. So please forgive me if I get carried away because this BB Cream is ah-may-zing.

I didn’t even know what a BB cream was a month ago. The BB stands for either blemish balm or blemish base. It basically acts as your primer, moisturizer, SPF, concealer/foundation (depending on how much coverage you want) and contains skin healing and soothing properties. I picked up the Dr Jart’s Silver Label because it’s meant for oily/combination skin. Since this product is mainly sold in Korea, I picked it up on Ebay for only $19.99 with shipping. The seller even sent a bunch of little BB Cream samples with it! Here’s the store: emulistore.

The shade of the cream is definitely meant for lighter skin with yellow undertones, so it definitely will not work for  everyone. You only need to place a few little dabs on your face and blend in with your fingertips. The coverage it provides is FAR better than I was anticipating. I was honestly expecting a tinted moisturizer type deal. But not at all. This BB Cream is actually medium to full coverage. I don’t even need to use concealer with it! This one little tube replaced so many steps in my beauty routine.. SUCH A TIME SAVER! I just apply it with my fingertips and throw on some finishing powder and I’m set.

Below is a BEFORE and AFTER comparison. You can see how prominant the acne scarring, redness and uneven skintone is on my before picture. The after picture shows how well the bb cream covers my problem areas, and a little dab was able to cover the entire half of my face.

That much coverage from just one product, very cool. And it lasts all throughout the day (which is a must for me since I work 8 to 5). Give this stuff a try.. highly recommended!

    Girly, just bought one this evening in Chinatown NYC, hoping this works for clearing those acne on the forehead. Has it cleared your skin?

      Hi Goodgirl! My skin is actually very acne-prone and sensitive and this bb cream definitely didn’t irritate my skin or cause any breakouts. It doesn’t have any acne CLEARING ingredients, such as benzoyl peroxide or sulfure, so I don’t imagine it will actually clear up blemishes. However, if you use this in place of your moisturizer in the daytime, you could see a reduction in your breakouts if you have oily skin.

      Now that it’s summertime, I’ve noticed that my T-zone will get pretty slick by the afternoon if I use a normal moisturizer, so this is a great substitute.

    Hey there! I was looking for some ideas on what BB cream to use. I also have very acne-prone and oily skin. I’m just wondering if your face got oily or something throughout the day when you used this BB cream.. thanks in advance!

      Hi Lulu :) I didn’t notice any excessive oiliness from using this product. My face just gets naturally shiny by around noon, so as long as I blot regularly my oil stays in check. Silica powder on top of this BB Cream helps a lot too for oil control!

    Will this match an nc15-20? I want to try it out but amafraid it is too dark. Thanks for the review.

      Yes it should match well with an nc20. I’m in the 15-20 range myself :)

    is this too light for an nc30 nw25-30 skintone people?

    • Chelsey March 26, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

      Yeah I think that would be pushing it. The shade is more suited for 15-20.
