AMW Reviews: Avon Healthy BB Cream

Time for an inexpensive BB Cream review that I'm sure a lot of you are interested in!  To be honest, I think I went through BB Cream craze way too early because at this point, I have found THE ONE and haven't been Ebay shopping for a year plus!

Finding the one, I may have to remind you, doesn't mean I'm stopping at THE ONE!  (That's only applicable to marriage!  LOL)  I am still looking through different products and brands to try because I could get lucky in the future with a more inexpensive BB cream that works for me and I don't need to hoard in Korea to get a good deal.

Okay, let me stop the talk and let's proceed with the review!

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Very cute squeeze type packaging and I like the pointed tip.
 
  • Manufactured date printed clearly on the tube.
  • Has a good amount of coverage considering this is a BB cream, not a foundation.
  • Creamy consistency.
  • Has SPF 20 PA++ protection which is the minimum SPF we need for hot/humid country like ours.
  • Comes out not too matte, not too shimmery, just right!  Imagine matte finish with a tiny hint of "healthy glow" VERY SUBTLE!
  • A little amount goes a long way.
  • Can reduce the appearance of discolorations.
  • Creates a nice, even base before foundation.
  • Inexpensive.
Cons
  • Limited shade availability, may not match everyone.
  • May dry out dry skinned individuals.
  • Has a tiny scent that I'm not a fan off.  I do have very sensitive nose but this goes off afterwards.
Overall
Gives a good light to medium coverage, blends into the skin and the color disappears after a couple of minutes upon application. 

Tips
  • Best applied with clean fingers as the product is needed the warmth to make it blend seamlessly.
  • If the shade comes off a bit different on you, let it settle for a couple of minutes before you proceed with foundation.  I find the color disappears afterwards.
  • If you have dry spots, apply a good amount of moisturizer prior to BB Cream application.
  • If you need higher SPF protection, apply sunblock first prior to BB Cream application.
Will I repurchase?
For myself not anymore as I am still loyal to my Skin79 VIP Gold BB Cream.  This is good for gift giving though as the packaging is gorgeous!

To whom do I recommend this to?
BB Cream enthusiasts who would want to give BB Creams a try for the first time minus the expensive price tag.

I highly recommend this to normal, combination or oily skin.  Dry skin may find this a bit drying for them.  

Where to purchase and how much?
For Php399.00 (approx $9.00) Call your Avon ladies by visiting www.avon.com.ph.

Avon Healthy BB Cream in Nude 
Consistency is just right, not too thick nor too watery

Once I blend it on my hand, the color is on the pinkish side.  Who knows "Caladryl" the anti-itch lotion?  hahaha It does remind me a bit of this base on color and consistency.

The pinkish shade disappears a bit but it's obvious that it doesn't match the shade of my skin.

Applied thinly on bare face without moisturizer
  • Skin color did not change as it blends well on my skin (Referring to the shade NUDE).
  • The allergies/redness on my cheek has reduced.
  • Gives a bit of dryness on the sides of my nose but can be remedied with a moisturizer prior to BB Cream application.

BB Cream users out there, have you tried the Avon Healthy BB Cream?
How do you like/hate it?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  5. I love BB Creams! I've been a Skin Food (the mushroom and aloe sun) user for 2 yrs but after reading different products and reviews,I decided to give skin79 a try, I bought the miniature set- hot pink, vip gold, diamond the prestige, and pearl luminous beblesh balm(highlighter) to know what suits me best since I was undecided whether to get the hot pink or the gold. And after trying them out for months (not consistently), I must say the vip gold is the winner. Although I also like the hot pink and the prestige but I like the coverage and the finish better with the vip gold. :) And everytime I read your review on it and knowing that it's your HG BB cream, I'm more assured that I made the right choice. heheh Hopefully I'll get my VIP Gold next week :)

  7. @Dang Villanueva Tama sis, with oily skin, the best way to control is "IS NOT TO CONTROL IT" but just remove excess oil to prevent it from clogging! Love you sis!

  8. @MereMakeupManiac Hay naku, dami kong kilala na mahilig mag try ng BB cream, so this one won't break the bank!

  9. @Kumiko Mae Skin 79 VIP Gold the one for me talaga! :) Parang LUCKY ME :P

  10. @Kat_m OH WOW! Can we HIGH FIVE? Really? You must have the same skin type as me! Most oily skin would prefer the pink one as it gives a matte finish as the VIP gold gives a luminous finish and doesn't have much oil control!!!! I am glad you love it too! Grabe, I've finished up 2 huge bottles PLUS I have 4 backups or 5?? hahahaha The lady in Korea was shocked when I bought that much! :) Hope you get yours! :)
