This is the BB crème of the crop
BB Crème au GinsengBRAND:
- What it does: It’s a primer! It’s a brightener! It’s a foundation! No, it’s Erborian BB Crème! This super-light formula provides lasting, velvety coverage with a powerful blurring effect that still looks natural. It’s enriched with ginseng, and not just any off-the-shelf herbal tincture. The angel-geniuses at Erborian are downright botanical snobs when it comes to their product—they let their ginseng fully mature for up to six years so the root absorbs optimum nutrient content to pass on to you. This anti-aging ingredient multitasks by fighting dark circles while you cover them with this flawless finish cream. The poreless, matte effect moisturizes without leaving you greasy, so your highlighter isn’t competing with unwanted shine. Ah, but we’re not done. It’s broad-spectrum SPF 20, and comes in one slender, easily dispensable tube. The only room for improvement: more shades, please, especially for people with dark skin.
- Why we like it: With total control of how much coverage you want, this buildable cream is a perfect match for your favorite no-makeup makeup looks.
- Rose Inc. tip: Use it as a primer for full-on glam coverage days to give you a matte and sun-protected canvas.
