Ginvera Green Tea Nude cover BB cream – a review

Ginvera BB Cream

I was recently offered to review Ginvera’s Green tea Nude Cover BB cream as well as their green tea aqua whitening cream (which I did not try). As I had heard quite a lot about the popularity of BB creams, I was keen to give it a try.

What is a BB cream?

BB actually means Blemish Balm. BB creams are meant to be a cominbation of a skincare product (moisturizer) and makeup. Or you could consider it makeup with extra skin healing properties.

In the case of Ginvera’s Green tea Nude Cover  BB cream the cream has been enriched with Green Tea, Ginseng, Chinese Angelica and Hyaluronic acid. It also has an SPF of 30 so it also acts as a sun protector.

What are the benefits of using this BB cream?

Ginvera claims the following benefits:

  • Natural and flawless skin coverage for all skin types
  • Non-greasy formula that provides natural matt finish
  • Spreads with nano-fine texture which results in even tone and natural look
  • Provides day hydration for soft, supple skin
  • Provides SFP 30/PA ++ to protect skin against UV rays
  • Helps to reduce the formation of lines

Application

The cream is to be applied after daily facial care and can just be applied with the fingers.

What I thought of it

Ginvera’s claims of all its benefits are quite extensive. Can one cream really look after your skin, avoid lines, cover blemishes and protect against the sun? This would definitely be ideal for a lazy person like me, as that would mean I would only need to apply just one product! After trying it, I must say I’m quite impressed of what it can do. I felt the colour looked quite natural on my skin. The cream also provided hydration and felt non-greasy. It is a not as thick as a foundation which suits me quite well.

Although I was happy with this cream and will continue to use it, I feel that it is more ideally suited for a younger person, who can still get away with a relatively basic moisturizer and foundation. An older person (over 40) like me needs a bit more ‘heavy duty’ skincare and arguably also a foundation that covers up a bit more.

However, saying that, I did like the ‘airy’ BB cream. I would normally not wear any makeup at all, so this BB cream that would at least give me some cover and evens out my skin tone is already an improvement.

Conclusion

I feel that this BB is a great asset to my skincare and makeup products. It’s ideal for those days that I don’t feel like applying makeup, but still want to look a bit better than just the natural me. The cream blends well with the skin, has a pleasant smell and is light and easy to apply. It manages to cover quite a bit of the unevenness and is perfect for people like me who like to get ready in 5 minutes.

Try it out for yourself!

    Hi. What did you use to remove the bb cream? Was it easy?

  • Sylvia June 8, 2011, 7:53 pm

    Hi Sara,

    I’m currently using Skinceuticals Simply Clean to clean my face and remove makeup. However, I think you could use any good cleanser. it’s not so difficult to remove. Why don’t you get one of the free samples and give it a go?

    Hi Coco,

    Both the whitening and BB cream are about $16.90 and can be bought at Watsons and Guaradian amongst others.

    I’ve tried the BB cream too and loving it!
    What I like most about it is that it’s not heavy on your skin and pretty much applicable to any skin tone (i’m tan btw).And I can actually feel my pores breathe!
    But be warned, it’s quite watery and can make quite a mess on the opening.
    happy trying! 🙂
