I’ve said often enough that I’m not that into BB Creams and the wonderful claims they proclaim to live up to. However, what with this brand and that brand available out there, I’m curious. I have since picked out one or two I rather like, but in the main, I’m still a little iffy about the whole BB Cream hype.
Today we have the Mentholatum Sunplay Skin Aqua Silky BB Cream that is quite readily available at our local pharmacies at a reasonably affordable price. This one comes in one shade as most BB Creams do, but in two different formula – Normal-Oily skin (Silky BB Cream) and Normal Dry skin (Moisture BB Cream). I broke into the Normal-Oily skin one, because from experience I’d realized that BB Creams tend to go on a little oily on my skin. Mentholatum is a Japanese brand, but this particular product was produced in collaboration with a Korean BB Cream company (unnamed).
In terms of texture, I must say that this one agrees with me quite well. It feels light on my skin and spreads quite easily leaving quite a nice finish. Its not very thick nor does it turn oily on my skin. I have to give it that. It actually feels lovely on and does not slide off throughout the day.
