My San San BB Cream Review

"Get the coverage that you need without the heavy feeling!"

 BB cream had been my best friend for several years already!
I've been an avid user even before BB creams became fad here in the Philippines.
I've tried different brands from asian, western 
and now finally a local brand I am very much excited to share with you!

Here's a BB cream suited for our country's weather and Filipinas' skin.
It's called SAN SAN BB cream from HBC.

Product Claims and Description:

San San-Hortaleza, MD BB Cream
Net weight: 30ml / 1.01 fl.oz
Price: PHP 149.75
All-in-one BB Cream that perfects and protects the skin. 
-Lighten dark spots
-Nourishes skin with Vitamins A, C and E
-Protects skin from sun damage SPF43
-with anti-oxidant

SWATCHES:
ONE PUMP OF SAN SAN BB CREAM
LIGHTLY BLENDED
EVENLY BLENDED ON SKIN
LEFT: WITH BB CREAM
RIGHT: BARE SKIN
My thoughts:

PROS:
-Hygienic and travel-friendly packaging
-Affordable and Locally available
-It has a good coverage that can cover some skin imperfections.
-It can also even out broken capillaries on my cheeks. Great coverage for a BB cream!
-Light weight and easy to blend out using finger palms or face brushes
-Not too matte and has that dewy finish which does not flatten the face
-Protects you from the sun with it's SPF 43
-Contains vitamins A, C and E which nourishes the skin
-I also noticed that the BB cream has a skin-adjusting tone feature by trying it out on myself and some of my friends which have different skin colors.
-Sits on skin very well and doesn't oil up for hours.
-Stays put for a decent number of hours. Setting this with powder will help.

CONS:
-None other than requesting a shade lighter than this which I know they're already trying to work out.
This will be my kikay problem when I get back to my natural fair skin color again.
Well, I just recently got my tan this summer oh yeah!
Btw, posted photos of my hand are taken days before I got darker.
 So yeah you can see a little glimpse of unmatched color there.

Here are some photos of my beloved colleagues:

Say Hi! to our bebe girl HANNAH.
Yeah we call her "bebe girl" as she is such a cutie baby RN in our group.

BEFORE:

PAT PAT PAT the BB cream! See the COVERAGE I'm telling yaaaaah all! ;)

And here she is! Taaadaaaaa! Didn't the BB cream made her look glowing and flawless? :)

And here's my RN/Marketing partner, my older sister in our group ate SHERRY!
Basically she already got a nice skin to begin with.

And here she is with the BB cream, doesn't she look more fresh and pretty? :)

And here's a close up on her skin after a few hours. The BB cream stays put well! Kudos HBC!

Over all, I like this BB cream. I do recommend it to my readers specially if you are morena or tan.
I know majority of the brands of BB creams out on market suits fairer skin colors
 which sometimes makes ladies with darker complexion look grayish, ashy or sometimes "ghostly" (lol jk!).
This BB cream seems to suit the perfect color for usual Filipinas. Kudos to that HBC!

What do you think lovelies?
Have you tried this BB cream already?
Feel free to share your thoughts down below! :)
Thanks for reading.
'til my next post! :)
