Ginvera Green Tea BB Cream

I have tried various different BB Creams since they appeared last Year. I really like my Garnier BB oil free cream, so I was really Intrigued to try a more traditional formula. The Green Tea Nude Cover* offers SPF which is rather impressive, before you even consider coverage, moisture and anti-ageing properties

It also promises to moisturise and nourish the skin, This does add a little moisture without making my combination skin going oily. It brightens and evens my skin tone, it covers almost like a full coverage foundation but without feeling heavy.

The Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream comes in one shade which it states to suit all shade,
I'm not sure if this is true as it is fairly light and could possibly go ashy on darker skin tones, but for me it is a great match. I also like that it is an SPF 30 which protects against harmful UV rays.

Even though the formula is thick, It is easily applied, I find it can be a little tacky for a couple of minutes after application, once it is absorbed by the skin it dries like any other foundation, it does not clog, cake or feel uncomfortable on the skin, it hide's flaws such as enlarged pores, fine lines or dry areas of the face.
I really liked using this BB Cream, it made my skin look lovely & bright, lasting a good 8hrs on me before it required a touch up.

Do you sway more for Foundation or BB Cream? 


  1. I only use BB cream because it's lighter than foundation.
    But I prefer asian BB creams.

  2. 8 hours is really good xx

    1. It actually looks better the longer you wear it throughout the day! X

  3. I'm glad you had success with this one!

    Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the BB. I find they have big claims with few results.

    1. Have you tried Liole BB creams?
      They are really nice with great results?
