Hello! I have been on the hunt for a good BB cream for awhile so I decided to try the Daiso BB cream. It's only $1.50 USD so I knew that I wouldn't be wasting a ton of money if I didn't like it. In case you were wondering BB stands for beauty balm or blemish balm. Most BB creams are similar to tinted moisturizers with a few added skincare benefits. According to the packaging the Daiso BB cream is meant to be an essence, makeup base, day time care (what does that even mean?), and foundation. I have this in the shades Ochre and Natural Beige. If you want to know my first impressions of the Daiso BB cream then keep on reading!
The top swatch is the shade Ochre and the bottom swatch is the shade Natural Beige. These look like two completely different shades in the swatches, but when I blended them out they both looked the same. Once I blended them in they seemed to disappear! None of the color showed up on my skin with either shade which was so disappointing! I wasn't expecting them to have foundation level coverage, but I was expecting them to give me some light coverage.
I was hoping that it would at least give my skin a bit of moisture, but once I blended it into my skin it felt like nothing! Once it dried it felt like I hadn't put anything on my face. I was hoping that this would be a great budget BB cream, but it just did't do anything!It smelled like sunscreen and had a thin texture. It blended out really easily, which is probably its best feature! Overall, the Daiso BB cream just didn't do anything for me! I haven't had the greatest luck with Daiso beauty products, but I know that some people love them so if you have any recommendations for Daiso beauty products please leave them in the comments below.
