Product Review: Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream

Ahh, BB Cream. BB Cream… What the hell is a BB cream?! Honestly I’m still not 100% sure but whatever it is, I’m loving it. From what I can tell (from my half a**ed research online) BB creams are sort of like skin care/makeup hybrids. Think tinted moisturiser with additional nutrients to benefit your skin. Sounds pretty good, huh? A few weeks ago I was set a sample of the Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream to try out. I was pretty excited about it, as I had heard a lot of rave reviews about various BB creams but had never bothered making the effort to source one out for myself. And then this miracle appeared in my life.

As you can see from the pictures above, the BB cream does a pretty good job of covering up all of the redness and terrible pigmentation in my skin. It provides good coverage while being as lightweight as a tinted moisturiser, which I think is fantastic. As with most BB creams (from what I’ve heard) there is a very slight greyish tinge and I’m not sure this product would suit those with medium to darker skin tones – I tried it on my sister while she was visiting this weekend and it was too light for her olive skin. It works for me though, and I liked the sample sized tester of this product so much that I bought a full sized version for myself last week. If feel inclined you can do the same thing you can, for $49 AUD at Adore Beauty online.

12 Thoughts on “Product Review: Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream

  1. This is a first. I have never encountered another person with an eye color so similar to mine… that unusual yellowy green with orange flecks.

    That makes me think the pigmentation came from the Euro ancestors who married my Native American ancestors.

    I love the color, don’t you? Especially with dark hair. By the way, your skin looks beautiful in both shots.

  2. I love bb creams – I have one by L’Egere and it’s amazing. It doesn’t last all day but it’s perfect for the weekend when I want to give my skin a big vitamin drink but still want some coverage. Sounds like I might have to give this one a try though!

  3. BB means “Blemish Balm” (some say beauty balm) – there’s a cool site full of Korean BB creams here check it out! http://www.mybbcream.com.au/

    Blemish balm creams! From what I know they were developed in Germany for post laser surgery patients as an alternative to foundation, so it’s supposed to really help with healing skin. Asia (Korea) quickly capitalised on it, and now there’s a lot in the market with specific aims; anti-aging, brightening, etc. Most come in only one or two shades. but it usually oxidises to fit most lighter skin tones. Coverage is usually light to medium, almost never full. It’s in between tinted moisturiser and foundation, I guess you could say?

    This BB cream looks interesting – can I ask how you use it? Would it work as a daytime moisturiser or would you apply over your day cream? Thanks!

    • I tend to use it without moisturiser, but that is because I have rather oily skin and have found that this works better without the moisturiser underneath. I think it is designed to be worn over moisturiser or whatever day serum you choose to wear though x
