Review: ElishaCoy's Always Triple BB Cream

Hi, sweeties ♡

I'm back with another review. Today, I'm reviewing Alway Triple BB Cream from ElishaCoy. As always, I got a sample from Ebay to try it. a Sample of 4ml lasted me over 4 uses. So, first let's start with the package's indications:

Always Triple BBCream: This multifunctional product protects skin from the sun, improves wrinkles and whitens skin. It can be used as makeup base or foundation. Not only the product naturally tones skin but it also conceals any imperfections. Natural ingredients like royal jelly and caviar help to protect and improve skin.  Contains skin-soothing botanicals (Portulaca oleracea L. and Morus alba Linne) for sensitive skin.
✝ How to use: Apply liberally to all exposed skin at the end of your skin care routine and then gently pat to enhace absorption.
✝ Ingredients: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Titanium Dioxide, Phenyl Trimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Sodium Chloride, Arbutin, Zinc Oxide, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate Hexyl Laurate CaprylicCapric Glycerides, Sorbitan Isostearate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tal, Hexyl Laurate, Butylene Glycol, Dicaprylate/Dicaprate Polysilicone-11, Silica, Beeswax, Dimethicone, Calcium Stearate, Methylparaben, Chlorphenesin, Butylparaben, Propyl-paraben, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caviar Extract Malpighia Punicifolia (Acerola) Fruit extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract Morus Alba Root Extract, Fragance Dimethicone/Methicone Copolymer, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Royal Jelly Extract, Triethoxy-caprylysilane, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499.
So, now that we have all the product's specification, let's head to the review:

▷ Texture: 1/5
I think this is one of the most downs of this BB Cream, its texture is TOO caky. When I put it into my skin, I just wanted to remove it already,. It didn't look o feel natural AT ALL. I think, the only reason why I kept using this BB Cream, was the fact that didn't have any other foundation to use at that time. So, yeah. It felt really bulky to me compared to other BB Creams. Very dissapointed.

▷ Coverage: 4/5
Always Triple BB did a good job covering my blemishes. It covered my mild to medium blemishes and some acne scars. It just doesn't work that well with new pimples, I must say. That's why I put it a 4 out of 5 and not a full score.

▷Oil Control: 4/5
Oil control was good, not the best thing ever, but good. Must say that I only used the BBCream, so the oil control can be improved with a powder or other product. It will be enough if you don't have such an oily skin as I do.

Overall: 3/5
I give this BBCream a three out of five. The fact that the texture was too unnatural is such a NO to me. Plus, the color was to grayish for my skin (as you can see in the picture above). But, I won't deny that it did cover my wrinkles, which surprised me because it should had been otherwiseits due to its caky texture. I guess, its dense texture is because of the SPF content in it (SPF30 PA++). But still, other BBcreams has sun protection and they are not as bulky as this one.

Anyway, I hope you found this review helpful. I would like to hear from you. If you have any question or experience regarding this or other BB Cream, leave it in the comment box below. I will answer them the soonest. Also, I'll be reviewing more BB Creams, so stay tuned.

Review: Elishacoy's Always Nuddy BB 24

Hi, sweeties ♡

It's been a while since my last post, like always lol I wanted to review a couple of BB Creams I recently bought, both are from Elishacoy. The first one I'm reviewing today is Always Nuddy BB 24. I got a sample from ebay, it lasted me for 4 uses. So let's first start with the description given by the package:

✝ Always Nuddy BB 24 is essential source designed to feel and look like your natural skin with a long lasting formula. Natural botanic extracts combined with minimized amount of harsh chemical ingredients to help sooth your skin. Suitable for trouble skin type. Excelent for protecting and improving the look of your skin. Gets absobed quickly without feeling greasy. Long-lasting formula protects your sensitive skin and covers any imperfections for all day long.

How to use: At the end of foundation makeup, use your fingers or a sponge to apply a small amount to your face in the order of cheeks, forehead and chin. Gently pat or blot your face to dry.
Ingredients: Sanghwang mushroom extracts, chamomile, portulas oleracea extracts, sodium hyaluroni acid, peach extracts. 
So now that we have all the products specifications. Let's head to the review:

 Texture: 5/5
The first time I tried this BB Cream, oh my god, It felt so good. Its texture is very smooth and soft. It was so nice to apply on my face. Plus, it didn't feel oily to the contact, just pure smoothness. I loved this BB Cream because of this.

Coverage: 3.5/5
Unfortunately, when the BB Cream or any foundation in general, if the feeling of it is too soft, it won't coverage that much. This BB Cream didn't cover much of my blemishes. And recently I broke out very bad, so I need full coverage, which this bbcream didn't give me. It cover some dark spots and acne scars, tho. But just the mild ones.

Oil Control: 4/5
I tend to have an oily skin so I was wondering whereas this bbcream would help me or not. It actually did. Not perfectly, but it did help me through the whole day. So if you have a combination of skin, this will suit you very well.

Overall: 4/5 
I think this BB Cream would be suitable for people who need from low to medium coverage and have a combination of skin. This BB Cream also has a long-lasting effect. I used it during my university days, so it can easily last you 8 hours (considering I only used the bbcream, not other product such as powder, etc.) I don't think I will repurchase it since I need a high coverage. Plus, I must say that this foundation doesn't count with SPF or any whitening or anti-wrinkle properties. So beware and take that in consideration when buying.

Hope this review helped. I'm gonna review the Always Triple BBCream from ElishaCoy next week, so stay tuned. If you have any question regarding this product or expierence with this bb cream you can post it in the comment box below.
