So today I will be reviewing the Dr. Jart Waterfuse BB cream. This is available at Sephora but I suggest you take a look at the Dr. Jart website to see what kind of products they offer other than the ones that are sold at Sephora.
-1.7 oz ($34 at Sephora, slightly different product for $42 on the Dr. Jart website)
-SPF 25 PA++
-Made with 50% water
-Made in Korea
Immediately, I'm sure the price can make some feel uneasy but this is not a product anyone should be using a lot of. You do not need a lot of this to cover your imperfections. That being said, no, it is definitely not as cheap as the ones you can find in drugstores but I strongly believe this BB cream is worth every penny.
I think this is most ideal for people with normal to dry skin. I've heard it works well for oily skin too, but you have to use some powder/blot every few hours. The finish is dewy, your face will look plump and 'glowy'. When I'm wearing a "full face" of makeup, I start out with this BB cream, apply some blush and mascara, then I'm good to go! I also like that this product has SPF 25. I use a teeny bit (and I'll explain later why) and blend, blend, blend! Ta-da! Most of my imperfections are gone! I'm not too crazy about concealing EVERY single blemish so even the ones that still peek through after applying this, I leave alone because there is enough coverage. I love that it's oil-free but not drying for my face. This is probably the main reason why this product could also work for oily skin. There is also a scent, nothing overwhelming, but it's slightly floral (kind of reminds me of my serum but not as strong as my serum). It's a pleasant smell and it does not linger for me.
Okay. Great product. Everyone should be able to use it, right?
Unfortunately not, as this product only comes in one shade. If you are very fair or very dark, you will not be able to use this product without looking a bit 'off'. I am on the lighter side and using too much of this will make my face face look darker than it is. But it is absolutely fine because I only need a thin layer of this and I'm good to go. I noticed that the more layers I put on, it made me look darker. So I can't really say this is "buildable" (unless you are exactly this shade) but I don't think it's something you really need to build!
Here is how the one from Sephora looks.
What they say.
This is the consistency.
It feels cool, literally, and it feels moist. I can't quite describe it but it's almost as if I feel water droplets.
The consistency is almost putty-like, sort of a cross between pudding.. and cream??
Man, I really am not good at this.
In other words..
It feels nice!
As you can see, it is too dark for my pale forearm before being blended.
But after much blending, it's hard to tell it's really that much darker!
...And I leave you with a FOTD! I tried to stand as close to natural light to show you guys how this looks on me and I think this pretty much looks like my own skin. As you can see, some of my imperfections peek through (especially my right cheek) but I personally think this is good enough. Unless it's for something really important, I will skip concealer. Like I've said in a previous post, I either wear foundation (or BB cream) OR just concealer but usually never both at the same time.
Ahh I'm dying to try some other Dr. Jart products! Can't wait 'til I'm done with this so I can try another BB cream from their line.
What is your favorite BB cream? Do you like BB creams in general or are you a foundation person?
