Kiss Me Sunkiller BB Cream
I first came across this product on WHB's blog, and was intrigued by what it promised. SPF broad spectrum protection, and coverage in one handy product? Time to do some shopping...
I bought this from my usual Asian beauty product source Adambeauty. Packaging wise it is quite simple, very much like Biore sunscreens which have a ball inside to help mix the product when shaken.
Coverage is fairly decent, it is better than a tinted moisturizer, falling just short of a full coverage foundation. To put this into context, it is definitely much better than Laura Mercier or Covergirl tinted moisturizers but sheerer than Lunasol Water Cream foundation.
Here's a before picture:
And the after picture:
As for the wear, because the base feels very much like a water-resistant sunscreen because it stays for a good many hours (except for when I'm at the gym)
It does however have a mattiying effect, which will suit oily skintypes more. Since I have dry to combination skin, it worked for me during the hot summer this year but is becoming a bit too drying on my skin during the fall to winter season. Unless I happened to have exfoliated the day before it tends to highlight dry patches on my skin. If you don't have any issues with dry skin though then this would still work for you in winter.
Overall, the Kiss Me Sunkiller BB is a handy all in one face product that I consider a lifesaver in the mornings when I can't be bothered to apply sunscreen, wait for it to dry and then foundation/base. Definitely a staple in my collection!
