Erborian BB Creme Au Ginseng Review

I've always liked the idea of BB cremes but I've never found one that worked that well for me. I prefer a little bit more coverage than most BB cremes offer, but the BB Creme Au Ginseng from Erborian ended up working really well for me!

*Disclaimer: This product was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

Erborian is a Korean skincare brand created by the duo of Hojung Lee, a Korean scientist, and Katalin Berenyi, a beauty globetrotter. Their exclusive formulas are developed in their laboratory in Seoul and are inspired by ancient Korean traditions.

The BB Creme is a 5-in-1 face cream with broad spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen. It's available in two shades, Clair and Doré, and I received Clair to try. Unfortunately, the two shades will obviously not fit a broad spectrum of skintones.

I like that this BB Creme has SPF. I use an SPF moisturizer every day, but the added protection is always a plus.

The creme is also enriched with ginseng and has multiple beneficial properties that are renowned in Korea. The creme helps even out and mattify skin, reduce the appearance of blemishes, refine skin texture, moisturize and plump the skin, and give a non-oily, velvety finish.

Here is my skin without any makeup and with the BB Creme on. I look miserable in the first picture because, well, no makeup! The Clair shade is a bit too light for my skin currently, but I think it will be perfect in the winter when I'm less tan. The Clair shade is more for cool undertones, while I think the Doré shade is better for warmer undertones (this is just a guess based on the swatch on the Erborian website, since I didn't sample the Doré shade).

I think the Erborian BB Creme Au Ginseng gives just the right amount of coverage for me. I have redness around my cheeks that I like to cover up, and this does so without being too heavy. I appreciate the lightweight texture, especially for the humidity in summer. A little bit also goes a long way, so I think one tube would last at least six months with daily use. It applied evenly and smoothly and lasted a full eight hour work day for me (and beyond)!
Bottom Line: The Erborian BB Creme Au Ginseng is a great creme for people who are looking for decent coverage without a heavy or greasy feel. Unfortunately it will not fit all skintones, but if you think either the Clair or Doré shade will work for you, I definitely recommend trying it out.
