I recently had the opportunity to try a couple of products from the Ginvera range, which is a line of skincare with it’s focal ingredient being Green Tea. The BB Cream comes in a typical BB Cream style squeezable tube with a silver lid, but what I like about this style of packaging is the fact that it more closely resembles the Asian BB Creams rather than the more Westernised ones we’re used to seeing.
The BB Cream itself is very fluid and comes out of the tube looking quite dark. I initially thought it would be far too dark for me, but it blends beautifully and doesn’t need to be worked in to the skin to look natural. The finish is very dewy without looking greasy, but the thing that I love most about this BB Cream is the fact that the coverage is unusually buildable for a product such as this. I’ve applied it with a brush, fingers and a beauty blender and I’ve found I achieve the best and easiest finish with the beauty blender.
Whilst my feelings about UK BB Creams are mixed as there are some I love and some I’m not sure on, I can confidently say that this is my favourite to land on UK shores so far. I’ve only been using it for a week, so I can’t comment on it’s effectiveness as a skincare product, but I can say that it hasn’t broken me out, nor has it clung to my dry cheeks. It wears well and I’d say I reached about 6 hours before my oiliness started to cause its usual havoc, which is definitely a decent length of time for me.
The downside is that this is priced at £20 putting it in the higher price end for BB Creams, but this will definitely be a repurchase for me, mainly due to the dewy finish and buildable-to-full yet incredibly natural coverage. Ginvera BB Cream can be purchased here and it’s also worth noting that you can request a free sample of this through the same link, which is something I’m really pleased about as I always thinks it’s a sign that a company has faith in it’s products if it’s willing to post samples free of charge. If you do go ahead and request a sample then please let me know what you think as I really do rate this product so I hope everyone else will too.
