Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion Review

I’ve heard a lot of good feedbacks about Laneige. I haven’t had the chance to try anything from the brand though until I got this- Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion. The moment I opened it, it got me so curious. Yes, we already know what BB cream is. It has been a craze for quite some time now, especially with all the beneficial claims that come with it. As much as I want to go for BB creams for my daily use, my oily skin doesn’t allow me to. Those that I have tried made me really greasy in just an hour! After a few tries, I gave up and thought it’s really not for my skin. But a BB cream in a unique cushion, housed in a compact??? Hmmm… I thought it’s worth giving it a try. After weeks of using it almost everyday, here’s my full review of Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion.

I love it because…

  • a box includes a compact with refill inside, PLUS another refill sealed in another packet. Yes, it has 2 refills in one box!

  • the applicator doesn’t leave streaks or absorb much of the liquid. I also appreciate that the applicator and cushion has a divider to preserve the active ingredients and their functionality.

  • its emulsion formulation is packaged in a compact with mirror and applicator! It comes in a unique cushion form, designed using the air pump technology. The air pump in the cushion contains air bubbles that functions to disperse a thin layer of BB liquid onto the skin with just a light pat. It’s definitely very convenient and not messy to apply!

  • it’s moisturizing. It has unique hydration technology, which provides 30% more moisture to the skin.
  • it’s great for all skin types- dry, combination, and oily. See below for some tips on application.
  • it has light to medium coverage. It can cover not so dark blemishes.
  • it gives my skin that dewy effect, minus the greasy look.
  • it’s lightweight.
  • it’s available in 3 shades- Natural Beige, Sand Beige, and Brown Beige. I’m a Natural Beige.

  • it’s easy to blend.
  • it contains Laneige’s patented White Plus Renew Complex, which inhibits melanin production and promotes a brighter complexion.
  • it has SPF 50+ PA+++.
  • it has that cooling sensation when applied.
  • it’s long-lasting and sweat-proof. I tried using it the whole day when I had to be outdoors most of the time. It stayed pretty well from day until night!

  • I didn’t get any allergic reactions or pimples.
  • it’s well-priced. A box, which includes a compact and 2 15g refills, is PHP 1,950. A Snow BB Soothing Cushion Refill 15g is PHP 950.

I wish…

  • it’s easy to know how much product is left or have been used. Since the liquid is contained in the cushion, I wouldn’t be warned ahead of time if I’m about to finish up the product.
  • it has slimmer compact. The case is a bit bulky, but not a problem with me as long as the cream is convenient to apply.
  • I can share it or use it on clients. Tube or bottle containers are still more hygienic when it comes to sharing.

Tips

  • Wash the puff when using it for the first time.
  • I still suggest applying sunblock even if you’re using makeups with SPFs.
  • For dry skin, moisturize first before applying Laneige Snow BB.
  • You may or may not set the BB cream with powder, but setting it would prevent it from creasing- especially on the eye area.
  • For oily skin, set the cream with a translucent matte powder.
  • For light coverage, blend the bb cream using the applicator. Start on the cheek area, blending outwards.
  • For heavier coverage, apply the product by gently patting the applicator. For more coverage on blemishes, you can use your finger to pat and blend.
  • You can also use your trusty foundation brush to apply the product.
  • If you’re sharing the compact with others, use a disposable sponge to pat on the cushion.

Overall

When I first opened the compact and saw the cushion inside, I thought it’s way darker than my shade. Lesson learned: Don’t be fooled by the cushion’s color! The liquid in it is way lighter, so I would suggest trying the product in Laneige counters first to get your right shade. For my complexion, I’m a Natural Beige.

As said earlier, I have only tried a few brands of BB creams but all of them made me look so greasy after an hour or so. I expected the same thing when I first used Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion. I was so wrong! Although it’s a moisturizing product, it doesn’t make me look oily right away. Of course, I still oil up even if I set it with a matte loose powder. It’s inevitable, especially if you have oily skin. I don’t have to retouch every now and then though. I just use a blotting paper and I’m back to freshness once again! I find this product really long lasting. It also gives me that dewy finish without looking greasy. Best of all, it’s a BB cream in a compact which makes it very easy and convenient to apply anytime, anywhere.

I recommend Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion to all BB cream lovers who want to achieve that radiant skin. For those who have been searching for a BB cream for all skin types, especially for oily skin, Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion is worth a try. If you’re also looking for an easier and non-messy way to apply BB cream, then this product is made for you. I honestly think you’re getting more than what you pay for in this product. It’s very well-priced considering its inclusions in a box and most importantly, its quality.

    do you prefer this over fairy drops?

  • lushangel

    I prefer using this for my casual everyday use. For busy days (no time to retouch), I use fairydrops since it’s longer lasting. You also get more (in terms of content) with fairy drops. It also depends on your needs. Fairydrops has heavier coverage. :)
