Hello, Sample Stash is back! I hope I can keep this up and use up all my samples. I’m aiming for twice a month, at least, so wish me luck! 🙂 Anyway, today, I have a Korean BB Cream called the Hey Nature Black Diamond Moist Tightening BB Cream. I got this in a Glamour Box many months ago. I’m a little averse to trying sachets of samples, but I didn’t want this to go to waste so I sucked it up and put it on my face.
It swatches pretty nicely and doesn’t look too white for me. Most BB creams tend to lean towards a super-cool pinky color, which kind of leaves a grey cast on people who aren’t as pale as Koreans to begin with. I don’t really like BB creams because I know I am not “pinky-white” and I do not really aspire to be.
However, BB creams attained popularity because of their supposed skin care benefits that lend to a complexion as glowing and beautiful as a Korean pop star’s. Since I didn’t get a bigger sample (though the cream is easy enough to spread that all you need is a little product), I can only speak for the immediate results of this BB cream.
As you can tell, it’s a little too light for me. Weird. It doesn’t look too off-putting on my face, but when your eyes travel down my face to my neck, chest, arms, etc. you would realize that something was amiss! Up close, it looks like it doesn’t sit well on your face, but from a distance, it just gives such a gorgeous dewy look, so I’m quite torn as to how to feel about this product.
The coverage is decent as well. Obviously, it does not give enough that it will cover pimples and blemishes, but it color corrects and evens out the skin tone.
Overall, my opinions on this product are pretty positive, but I don’t think I’ll be buying a full-sized bottle of this. For one thing, it’s pretty expensive. And another thing: I do think that my skin tone just probably isn’t suited for BB creams. The “real” Asian ones, anyway.
You can purchase Hey Nature on the Glamour Box website, though I have no information on its animal testing policy.
