In the case of this Face & it White BB Sun Balm, I just got intrigued by the term "balm". When I ordered this, I was actually expecting a compact powder plus two mini tubes (primer & foundation). But when the owner of the shop bought it from TFS Korea, she informed me that it was not a powder but a sun balm instead. I honestly didn't care! It was rather cheap therefore I have nothing to lose if I give it a shot, right?
I can't believe the compact is being sold online for USD 23-30 (Php 943-1230) when I only got this entire kit for Php 475 thru Seoul Catch during The Face Shop's holiday sale last month! That's more than half the price! Click HERE for price reference online.
Though generally I would not recommend this to those with oily skin. Because with their natural tendency to produce excessive oil combined with our country's humid temperature, the balm would easily cake - or worse, slide right off.
The foundation has a pink undertone which is obviously not a perfect match for me given that I have an undoubted yellow undertone. So when I use this, I make sure to apply only a thin layer. Else, it would makes my face look gray-ish. But other than the obvious undertone mismatch, it's a decent foundation as its slightly thick consistency offers a great coverage but still remains blendable.
Wait for my FOTD using Face & it White BB Sun Balm, ok? *wink
Check out the entirety of my Seoul Catch Haul HERE and let me know what you want me to review next. :) Don't you just love shopping for products at a fraction of their mall price locally? :)
P.S I was not paid for this post. I paid for this product using my own money.
