Review: Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream

I’m not sure if you could still remember this BB Cream but it’s from Vanity Trove February 2013. This caught my attention very much from the packaging itself. Simple yet cute blister packs that I have ever seen from samples. Don’t you think so? Because this blister packs are much attractive, I have decided to give this a try.

To use this sample, simply bend over the top and it has a narrow opening to dispense the BB cream. This is less messy, minimize wastage and oxidization.

This BB Cream comes from Korea, you can tell from the Korean language printed. It does contain talk, silica and Paraben.

Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream - Swatch

There’s no indication what shade this is, therefore I’m assuming that they only comes in one shade. The moment I have open from the blister pack, the shade doesn’t seem to fair until the swatch. It does look a tad bit light for my skin tone and appears grey-ish from the swatch.

Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream - Application

Here is how it turns out from the application.

  • Before – After applying my skin care
  • Apply – Dab it all around the face and blend it with a flat top brush.
  • Blended – The BB cream coverage is sheer to medium, you can see that my acne spots are still showing. Doesn’t feel too heavy or oily, skin felt hydrated. Blends easily.
  • Set – Powder my face with foundation powder.

Oriks Wild Ginseng Stemcell Essence Twister BB Cream - Before & After

I tested this for a day and lets see how did it turned out.

  • 8:44AM – Freshly applied it and I was worried that this shade maybe too fair for my skin tone.
  • 11:53AM – The BB cream seems to have adjusted to my skintone but my skin starts to oil up especially the t-zone area. It settled on my under eye fine lines.
  • 6:25PM – My skin is much more oilier and losing the BB cream coverage especially at the sides of my nose.

Verdict?

I liked how natural this BB cream appears on my skin and doesn’t give that crazy gray cast plus it didn’t oxidise. The only concern for me is oil control but this BB cream doesn’t comes with such properties. I would think that this would be better for those who have normal to dry skin type and fair to medium skin tones. The coverage is more on natural finish, sheer to medium coverage. Another backlash for me is that it settles on my under eye fine lines which doesn’t look very decent.
