I tested out Dr Ci:Labo BB Perfect Cream White377+ and it made me think for a while. By looking at it, it is simply a BB cream. However, it definitely feels that there’s more to it! I would describe it to be in between a BB cream & a moisturizer.

Before After

Application is extremely easy. And because of the moisturizer properties it has, it slipped my mind & I applied it just like how I would apply my skincare products instead of the usual dabbing & patting for conventional BB creams. Not to mention, this application technique doesn’t leave streaks on my face! 😉

I will try out the rest of the products soon! (Too many on my list hehe!)
