FOTD: FairyDrops Candy Bar BB Cream + ProStyle Fuwarie

I love Japanese BB Cream as compared to Korean BB Cream because it offers full coverage and well, it suits my skin type. When I went to Korea in 2011, I bought a lot of BB Creams from different brands but I was not able to review any because some offer only light to medium coverage while I find the others, too cakey.

Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream  in Light Ochre 35 g PhP 1,550 (JPY 2,730)

For quite some time now, I have been sticking with Kanebo Kate Mineral BB Gel Cream because I have not found any other brand that suits my skin tone. In fact, I even bought another tube when I went to Japan early this year.

Anyway, when Cheryl of Beautybox Corp. sent me a squeezable tube of Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream the other day, I can't wait to give it a try. Maybe this time, I will have an alternative to my favorite brand. Did I tell you that it's made in Japan?

Read after break for my verdict....


 unboxing my Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream

 the tube should be upside down though when you store it (item displayed for picture purposes only)

 aside from nozzle, Fairydrops provides a sponge applicator

Two ways to get the product out of the tube:

  1. For sponge, pull the cap away from the tube
  2. For nozzle, unscrew the cap from the squeezable tube

How to use Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream:


pea-sized

Step 1: Squeeze a pea-sized amount of product onto the palm of your hand

 spread evenly

Step 2: Dot your nose, cheeks, under eye, chin, forehead and jaw line with the product then blend well with your fingers or makeup brush

 it gives a slight sheen finish

What I like about Fairydrops Candy Bar BB Cream:

  • I don't need to put moisturizer on before application of the product
  • Easy to spread
  • Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are listed on the ingredients for sun protection
  • Squeezable tube
  • Full, even coverage (including my freckles ; p)
  • Does not make my skin oily 
  • Suits my skin type
  • Water-proof

What I don't like:

  • It smells like sunblock
  • Can get cakey when you applied too much
  • Price point- it will be an expensive alternative to my favorite BB Cream
