As you probably know by now, I get very excited about the look of skin. The Erborian range is so exciting to me because its focus is about just that – improving, correcting and delivering the appearance of perfected skin. I have been using a couple of things from the range; the Sleeping BB Mask and the Herbal Energy lotion which I am yet to review, and most recently the Erborian BB Cream with Ginseng which is the focus of today’s post.

Erborian was actually the first brand to launch a BB cream in Europe, back in 2009, and as all the products are made in Korea, the home of perfect skin, they really know what they are talking about.

Erborian BB Cream Features

The Erborian BB Cream promises to transform the appearance of your skin, giving it a velvety finish, ultra smooth and perfect:

  • High concentration of “herbs of longevity”
  • Anti-aging action
  • Energising and  toning
  • Combination of Ginseng, Antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins A and C
  • Even out skin tone
  • Camouflages imperfections

All of these things are summed up by Erborian as the baby skin effect and that really does get my attention!!

The texture is smooth, creamy and comforting, yet super light on the skin. It melts into the skin invisibly and covers redness while making the skin look really even toned.

You can use this under foundation as a super perfecting primer, but when I’m at home I just pop on a bit of bronzer, mascara and lip balm, and it’s all good! I love the fact that the skincare ingredients can get on with their anti-ageing work all at the same time!

Erborian BB Cream au Ginseng is £35 for 45ml. Find Erborian at Selfridges and Space NK. It’s also in Sephora.
