Following the success of their very popular skincare line, Hadalabo (the Japanese Skincare line) has released a sunscreen and BB Cream line!
As I’m already a devoted fan of their Shiroyjun Whitening skincare (reviewed HERE), I went straight to try their BB Cream. I believe its a good sign when a skincare brand starts doing makeup because I feel that they will likely make colour products with a skincare conscience.
The packaging and aesthetic of this product certainly reflects Hadalabo’s concept on simple, effective skincare…the branding is minimalistic with clear bright text. Perhaps a little bland for some, but I personally think it works well with its pre-existing line, one look at this and you KNOW its from Hadalabo.
Product: BB Moist Cream SPF32/PA+++
Variation: Emulsion type (for oily skin) and Cream type (for dry skin)
Colours: #01, #02
Price: $20 CAD (via eBay)
Availability: eBay or Adam Beauty online
Would I repurchase: Yes.
I choose the darker of the 2 shades available for this BB Cream (the Emulsion version also has 2 shades but not the exact same shades as the BB Cream), which is Natural Ochre. While it is darker than my skin tone, I find that once it blends out, I have no real problem with it though that might change as I get paler in the winter.
(having a terrible breakout at the moment…oiiii)
THE ROUND UP
- BB Cream (2 shades) & BB Emulsion (2 shades)
- Leaning towards yellow undertones, runs slighter darker than other Korean BB Creams I have encountered
- Both have SPF to protect you from the sun rays
- Texture is very bendable with fingers
- Medium coverage & layer-able
- Hydrates the skin through out the day
- Soft semi-glowy finish
- BB “CREAM” version: recommended for dry, normal or combination skin
- No breakouts or sensitivity!
Overall this has got to be one of my favourite BB Cream ever, of course I’ve still got my eye on a few others I want to try but really, I think this product full fills pretty much all of my requirements on a basic BB Cream. Albeit it doesn’t have any “miraculous” skincare/healing results, the fact that it can keep my skin hydrated through a 10hr + day is a huge feat on its own and I’d say that the skincare background of Hadalabo really stands out in this base care. Highly recommend this for everyone, try the Cream or the Emulsion, either way I think the quality of the product is certainly evident.
