Product Review: Snow DD Cream Ultra-Light Perfect Foundation Sunscreen SPF50 PA+++

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

     From bb cream, to cc cream, and now it's dd cream. If you're a beauty junkie, prolly you know what bb or beauty blemish and cc or color correct creams play in the beauty department. These makeup products were introduced in the market years ago and Koreans are the forefront of this makeup trend.

     A BB cream is a makeup product that has skincare benefits. Some describe it as lighter than foundation but heavier for a tinted moisturizer and most of the brands available gives a full coverage. On the other hand, a CC cream is a color correction cream that can hide redness and other skin imperfections thus it's lighter than bb cream as it corrects than conceals. Now enter DD cream which stands for "disguise and diminish" or daily defense according to beauty gurus who have tried one. Today, I'll be sharing my thoughts on Snow DD Cream that was sent to me by cheskasstore.net for a review.

     As for the packaging, this comes with a pump that dispenses the right amount of product but there were times that the pump gets jammed so be extra careful when dispensing. The scent of this reminds me of baby powder and I'm happy that it's not overpowering during application.

     It can cover light blemishes and makes the skin really bright. I can say that it gives a light to medium coverage as it also makes pores look invisible in photos minutes after application. It's not heavy on the face and can last for more than 5 hours on my combination skin.

Blended, can you see that it's a bit lighter than my skin tone?

Applied lightly on my face. The right photo looks ligther in person.

What I like:
  • The product comes in a well-sealed box packaging. Once opened, the tube type bottle has a decent pump that dispenses the right amount of product.
  • It's a 3-in-1 product in a bottle- you get a moisturizer, a foundation, and a sunscreen in a tube.
  • The scent is not overpowering. 
  • A little amount of product goes a long way.
  • The texture is light and blendable.
  • It's easy to apply, velvety smooth during application.
  • This gives a light to medium coverage depending on the amount of product you will use. 
  • It conceals light blemishes and gives a matte finish.
  • Batch, manufacturing, and expiry date are printed on the box.

What I don't like:
  • The price is not budget-friendly.
  • Not easily accessible, you have to buy it online.
  • It comes only in one shade and it a bit light for my NC 20-25 skin tone. I prefer a shade that will blend into my skin tone and gives more glow. 

Will I repurchase? No, as I have a lot of bb cushions to finish and I prefer the latter one for my skin concerns.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4/5 rating.  I'm a fan of bb cushions as of the moment and I prefer a more heavy coverage to cover my Hori nevus and melasma. But for those who prefer a light foundation with skincare benefits like a moisturizer and a sunscreen, you may consider this. It can cover light blemishes and makes the skin really bright. 

    Snow DD Cream also makes pores look invisible in photos minutes after application. It's not heavy on the face and can last for more than 5 hours on my combination skin. I think this dd cream is okay as summer foundation because of the texture and the SPF. Other than that, I wish that it's available in shades that will suit every skin tone plus it has lots of dimethicone in the ingredients list so to those who are allergic to this ingredients, you know if it's a buy or bye.
