AMW Reviews: Avon Healthy Makeup Hydrating BB Cream

More than a year ago, I reviewed Avon's first BB cream called Avon Healthy BB Cream (review HERE), to keep the product usage experience short and sweet, I hail the original Avon Healthy BB Cream as an inexpensive BB cream that works for normal, oily and combination skin.  The said BB cream has more of a pinkish tone, it contains SPF20 PA++ which is good for daily use.

Now, dry skinned individuals who would love to try out BB creams but dislikes the matte and dry finish can definitely give this new Avon BB cream a try called Avon Healthy Makeup Hydrating BB Cream!  This time, the product comes with SPF30 PA+++ (note on 3 pluses) so definitely, this has better sunblock properties!  Aside from the obvious difference, feel free to read more about my experience using this!

It's great that I get to try Nude shade again for this hydrating variant.

Avon says ---
Healthy looking skin in one step. Your favorite Healthy Makeup BB Cream now has a Hydrating version. Infused with skin loving Vitamin Complex and Hydration Essence. Skin is nourished and hydrated.
It has 8 benefits:

6. Sun Protection with SPF/PA
7. Revitalizes
8. Leaves a Healthy Glow


AMW says ---
  • Squeeze type tube.
  • Higher SPF and added PA.
  • Easy to blend.
  • Moisturizing.  Doesn't dry out my dry skin.
  • Has more of a yellow undertone which works better on most Asian skin tones.
  • No weird fragrance/scent.
  • Gives minimal coverage.  Can lessen the look of redness.
  • Normal/combination skin may find the need to retouch midday.
  • Extra concealing is needed for obvious marks, spots and darkness.
A great sized BB cream to start with.  This product works for normal and dry skinned individuals.  Can be used on its own due to its light coverage.

  • Normal/Dry skin can skip moisturizer as this product is moisturizing enough.  
  • If you have VERY dry skin, an extra boost of moisture from your favorite skincare brand may still be needed.
  • Normal/combination/oily skinned individuals must skip moisturizer application, apply more on areas that doesn't oil up and apply the least amount on the t-zone area.
  • On regular days, apply BB cream all over face after skincare routine, conceal areas that needed to be concealed and set with your choice of powder.
  • Once signs of irritations occur, stop usage IMMEDIATELY!
  • Do not forget to apply BB cream on the neck and ears.
  • Wash face with a makeup remover or gentle cleansing oil before going to bed.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Best used for people with dry skin.  Oily skinned individuals may check out Avon Healthy BB cream.

Where to purchase and how much?
For Php399.00 (approx $9.00) 18g Call your Avon ladies by visiting  Like Avon Philippines on Facebook.


Squeeze type tube with a pointed tip, easy to control amount of product needed.
Shade in Nude has more yellow undertone as compared to the shade Nude in the original Avon Healthy BB cream. 

Upon blending, the product looks a bit lighter than my NC20-25 skin, doesn't enhance dryness or lines.

Giving a couple of minutes, the product settles in and matches my skin perfectly.

Before and After 
Left: Bare face, see the redness around the apples of my cheeks and sides of my nose.  I also have a dark shadow close to the hairline.
Right: Applied a pea size amount of Avon Healthy Makeup Hydrating BB Cream in Nude.  As seen on photos, some of the red spots disappeared especially on the sides of my nose.  The dark shadow near my hairline also disappears giving my face an even complexion.

Don't judge me, this is a weird mug shot but this works to show how the product looks!
