Today is heaven-graced because it is in fact my dear husby's birthday!!! I know... you must be wonderin' WTH am I doin' hehehe. Well, we were already done with the family dinner and some catchin' up with the in-laws. Finally, a time for the guys to socially lubricate their thoughts hahaha...it's now their time to quaff till dawn. =) The eccentric "ME" decided to consume my night with a new review. Actually, this BB I'm goin' to share is something that's been makin' a fuss for years now...it's the The FaceShop Face It Aqua Tinted BB.
The FaceShop Face It Aqua Tinted BB aims to provide a comfortable and light coverage which is composed of 70% deep ocean water that keeps the skin greatly moisturized, radiant and clean. It also contains purslane extract that makes the skin calm and trouble-free.

Content: available in 20ml and 40ml - I got mine in 25ml which is part of the Face It BB Special Kit
Availability: This is still available at any The FaceShop branches in its new and re-branded packaging.
Price: Face It BB Special Kit for PhP500.00
Since I got this as part of a special kit, packaging is quite pretty and cute in a squeeze-it-upside-down-type tube, very handy right? =)
This BB is very much suitable for oily / combination types of skin, as the name implies, it is water-based BB cream. And since it also contains purslane extract (With Mr. Google's help this extract has exceptional anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-skin allergies benefits.), I suppose this is also excellent for troubled or acne prone types of skin.
This cream feels airy and light on skin. It is good to keep the pores unsuffocated.
Oil control is reasonably good, I oil up lesser with this BB on,I do touch up on lunch breaks and blot my face with tissue once in a while. As for the claims, that it can help heal acne, I guess I'll have to update that. I have been battling this problem fairly and I must say that the present zits so far are healing with the aid of skincare of course. To this point, some have already subsided and some are still raw, good thing the cooling effect soothes them though. =)
Frozen Blossoms' thoughts:
I was not blessed with an unflawed clear and healthy skin. Mine has always been super sensitive, oily and acne prone, a dilemma I share with some ladies of any age. I am grateful though for this kind of cosmetics that can at least make us self-assured and poised despite the nuisance.
I like this because...
- it has SPF20 with PA++
- it smells great
- it is not greasy
- it feels light and comfortable on skin
- it feels cool and calming
- it sets easily
- it is good for troubled/ oily / combination skin
- it is sold locally
- healing promise (will update)
- light to medium coverage
