Hello darlings, today we are reviewing a new release the new Erborian super BB ginseng. In the past, I’ve already collaborated with Erborian when I was still on Instagram. So, I am quite excited to try out this new release that I purchased.
When I was younger I used to be a big fan of BB creams. They usually have light coverage a bit of SPF and they treat your skin. This new release, Erborian Super BB Ginseng is a covering care-tinting cream without material effect that has anti-imperfection action. Let’s put it to the test!
Erborian Super BB Ginseng – First Impression :
Staring with the packaging I purchased the biggest size the 40ml but there is a smaller version the 15ml. The BB cream comes in a tube, very simple. However, I noticed that the packaging changes colors depending on the shade you pick.
If you order it online on Sephora you get a free sample to test the shade you have picked and that’s so cool. So, my skin has imperfections around the nose area, some acne on the chin sides, and hyperpigmentation. When I first swatched it, it feels like foundation cream. A bit thick but super lightweight and hyperpigmented.
I prepared normally my skin, and because we are putting it to the test I split my face in two. On one side I used my foundation brush and on the other my beauty blender. The super BB cream applied beautifully on both sides, it has a velvet texture but it is a bit sticky and feels a bit bold.
Here is my Erborian Super BB Ginseng review:
As you can see in my TikTok demo. The first swipe was enough to cover all my imperfections and you can see the glowy touch since this Super BB cream is supposed to hydrate your skin. I am a big fan of it? I don’t really know what to say. Because I have oily skin, I apply a thick SPF that makes you literally glow in the dark 😂.
Overall, you clearly can see the half makeup/half skincare promise. The texture is thick but you end up with a beautifully natural complexion. Also what I really appreciate is the fact that the formula is enriched with Niacinamide, a powerful active ingredient for clear skin. Not forgetting the most important ingredient ginseng that helps to immediately reveal smoother and hydrated skin.
I am not a big fan of looking glowy at the end of the day. I do move ALOT and I appreciate a matte-looking face. In the pictures you see, I’ve used the Always an Optimist fixing powder by Rare beauty. As this setting powder is not as thick as my go-to one ( Laura Mercier), maybe it had something to do with the too much glow. Wait for an update.
Is Erborian Super BB Ginseng worth buying?
Erborian Super BB Ginseng is half skincare, half makeup, that will help you to camouflage and brighten your imperfections without leaving a caked-on feeling. It’s not heavy on the skin making you feel like you have nothing on the skin.
To be honest, I have mixed feelings about this Super BB. I don’t know if I really like it or not. I mean once again, I have oily skin and it’s glowy by nature kind of cream, and I am not a big fan. It does fade away throughout the day but I’ve seen worst. I would definitely recommend if you have dry or mixed skin but oily not sure.
It’s time to say goodbye. I hope you enjoyed this review.
See you soon💕
