AMW Reviews: MYRA VitaGlow BB Cream (Ivory)

Myra VITAGLOW, this particular located brand of tinted moisturizer won my heart 4 years ago and you may refer to my review HERE.  I also did a second post showing how this product worked even on my most grueling schedule as a makeup artist with no chance of retouch (post HERE).

And yes, I finished a tube of it!  When I received a press kit from our friends from Myra for their newest VITAGLOW BB Cream, it brought back good 'ol memories!  If I love the tinted moisturizer so much, the BB Cream could be as equally fine!  Or even better?  Are you excited to read my thoughts?

Well, just so you know, I was TOO EXCITED to try this product I forgot to take product shot and used it right away!  (Which rarely happens to me as I have strong self-control), so yes, this is a product photo taken from Myra!  And you'll see more personalized photos as you scroll down!  So bear with me please.

Myra says ---

  • It’s moisturizing. This lightweight cream hydrates your skin to keep it soft and supple. 
  • It contains Vitamin E. This helps nourish your skin even more, so your complexion appears younger-looking and healthy. 
  • It doubles as foundation. The tinted formula comes in two shades: Ivory and Beige, to help you even out your skintone perfectly and hide pigmentations. 
  • It contains skin-enhancing minerals. Staying late at the office? Use this unique BB cream to add a natural, glowing finish to your skin! You’ll love how the subtle, light-reflecting shimmers in this cream will make you look like you’ve got a lit-from-within glow. 
  •  You can use it as concealer. Just pat an extra layer of Myra VitaGlow BB Cream to camouflage dark spots and blemishes. 
  •  It’s also has sunscreen. The SPF15 in this easy to bring tube will protect you from harmful UV rays that causes premature aging. 
  •  It’s hypoallergenic. Girls with sensitive skin don’t need to worry about breakouts, because this dermatologist-tested cream is proven safe for daily use. 
  •  It's the most affordable! There's no need to hesitate when it comes to purchasing this product, since you can score instant glowing skin for only P99 a tube. Such a great beauty steal!

AMW says ---
  • Indeed very moisturizing.
  • Fragrance Free.
  • Applies smoothly on skin leaving skin hydrated yet non-greasy.
  • Gives light to light-medium coverage depending on application.
  • No allergic reactions.
  • Skin looks natural and almost refreshed after application.
  • Price.
  • Dark complexions may not find Beige or Ivory useful for them.
  • Coverage may not be enough for users who prefer heavier coverage BB Creams.
  • I prefer at least SPF20 or higher.
Natural-looking BB Cream that gives a subtle glow immediately upon application.

from Myra
  • Shake well before use.
  • Apply a small amount on face and neck blending evenly for a natural finish.
  • Use daily as your facial moisturizer.  Can also be used as a make-up base.
from AMW
  • Best used with fingers (personal opinion).
  • Apply with downward stroke or going to the direction of your facial hair to prevent streaks.
  • Use patting motion on areas you need more coverage. (Ex. undereye, sides of the nose, marks, etc..)
  • If you will be out under the sun for long, use your favorite sunblock/sunscreen underneath BB Cream.
  • If you have combination, oily skin, use setting powder and "set" the BB cream with patting motion.
  • Want more coverage?  Use your favorite concealer and spot conceal areas that needed coverage.  If you keep on using your Myra Vitaglow BB Cream for coverage, you'll finish 1 tube in less than a week!
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Natural-looking BB Cream users.  Beige and Ivory would work well on users with fair to medium skin color.  Works for Normal, combination and dry skin.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide priced at Php99.00 (approx $2.00).

With small-steady strokes going to the direction of facial hair, 
this application style is perfect to cover redness.

Before and After
