In SS2018, Kanebo changed their repotted sunscreen, Allie. The biggest change is “Friction Proof”. I am the person who sweat really a lot, and made my clothes damaged often by my sweat and sunscreens. I jumped this Allie Extra UV BB Gel, due to the strong SPF 50+, PA++++, Waterproof, and Friction Proof effects.
And it is also true that this BB is often ordered among us.
Regularly, I am not a big fan of BB cream things. In person, I have not met a person who makes up really beautifully with BB creams. (As you know, when I met friends of mine, I often ask which foundation are you using?? or something. They LOVE to tell me, if their makeups are beautiful. )
But to going to ship the products to the post offices? or walking? Probably, using Excia foundations are too much to using for my activities. So, I changed my mind, and bought this BB.
Let me show you my review. Actually I had used some “BB” or “CC” things but the shade is a kind of wired, grey or something. But seems this BB cream by Allie, the shade is natural.
Blending on my arm, the shade is a little bit too white for my skin. Indeed when you use this as the a primer, it is not pretty bad.
They claim this BB is pore covering and good lasting.
On my face, I felt there are no irritation, I often feel sting by sunscreens. It is a wonderful point. The second is there are no perfume nor scent. It is great. The covering is medium to full, I felt, and I did not feel this BB is emphasis my pores on nose, but not covering well, as I had expected. In this point, I should not to do that, I am using high end foundations as daily, not BB.
I am not feeling my skin is moisturised by this BB, they claimed they are using skincare ingredients ( but not so much sure which one they are talking about). I felt my skin is powdery. There are no “radiant” finish, but some may say “matt”. My favourite finish is natural to semi-matte. It is too matte finish for my preference.
The lasting is not pretty bad. When I use weak lasting products, my makeup are melting in the first one hour. It never happened in this BB. But I never say it lasts whole a day, you know, this is a BB cream, and I guess this is not for the using of that way.
OK, let me spray Avenne Water on my arm.
Hmm. Actually the waterproof effect is less than I had expected.
Let me wipe by my towel.
Indeed when my arm is not wet, when I touch my face by tissue, there are nothing on the tissue. Not pretty bad.
So, if you rarely sweat a lot, it can be not bad.
I had used ADDICTION Skin Protector, as primer & sunscreen, but in this year, I may use this Allie BB for my primer & sunscreen.
