Before & After Photos
The shade that suits my skin is best is Nude.
I really love the finish of this. It covers effortlessly and you really don’t need a lot.
My Review of Erborian Super BB
I have to say, I liked this product as soon as I tried it. The shade Nude is a really good match for me. It is on the light side, so it’s nice and brightening, and I just need a touch of bronzer to warm everything up.
I have been using the Clinique Foundation Buff Brush* to apply this and you only need a small amount to get a lovely flawless coverage. It blends effortless and takes absolutely no time at all to apply.
Is it non-comedogenic?
The Erborian Super BB is non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested, so you need not worry about it blocking pores.
What is the best way to apply it?
I find the best way to apply it is to pump out a small amount on the back of the hand and then use a buffing brush to pick up small dabs at a time. It is really very easy to blend and give excellent coverage really quickly.
Does it hydrate the skin?
I find the Erborian Super BB formula nice and hydrating. It contains white Ginseng and fermented Ginseng flower which work to moisturise and hydrate. It leaves my skin feeling juicy and not dry.
What other skincare benefits are there?
As well as hydrating white Ginseng and fermented Ginseng flower, the formula also contains 4% niacinamide to ensure that skin clarity is maximised. The niacinamide works to minimise imperfections such as clogged pores and blackheads for a more unified complexion.
Is it good for mature skin?
I have mature skin and I am getting on really well with it. I have an oily t-zone and am dehydrated everywhere else and I find the Erborian Super BB formula very balancing. I don’t find that it settles into any fine lines and it stays looking natural and healthy on my skin.
What is the finish and coverage?
So the Super BB offers more coverage than Erborian’s original BB cream but this doesn’t mean it is mask-like. A small amount gives a beautiful natural finish that makes my skin look really good. It is perfected without looking cakey.
You can still see skin and although the finish is matte, there is a really healthy looking radiance that glows through, especially if you don’t powder it.
It is lightweight in feel, and very buildable, so you can add an extra layer for areas you need a touch more coverage.
Is it long wearing?
This lasts really well on my skin and my skin stays looking perfected throughout the day. I haven’t been powdering it and I still have a good and even level of coverage at the end of the day.
I hope all that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions. You can leave a comment here, and drop me a message on Instagram.
