Spawake Moisture Fresh BB Cream Review and the Launch Event Insights

Hello Beauty& Beyond's lovelies!!So winter is finally coming in, and let us all hail the season of dry skins and parched lips! But come winters, and there are so many exciting festivities and the most coveted wedding season! And all such festivities requires a nice, glowy skin to make you look all prepped up for the season! Recently, i got my hands at the Spawake bb creams, which they sent us in two shades--01 perfect glow and 02 natural glow! So here i am with my honest reviews on the same.
‘Spawake’ has recently launched two new products – Moisture Fresh BB Cream and Whitening Triple Care Serum with Femina Magazine at Olive Bar and Kitchen.

It is available in 2 SKUs and 2 tones: - 30g (Rs.249) and 15g (Rs.129), 01 Perfect Glow and 02 Natural Glow.

My Experience


Packaging- The BB Creams come in these cute little tube packagings which come in blue and white colour and are very cute to look at! The spawake has their logo as Sea Beauty and the packaging with the aqua blue and white packaging clearly symbolises the underlying theme! The tube has a thin nozzle and also has a screw lid top which shuts tightly and is very convenient to use and also travel friendly!


Shade
- The shade 01 perfect glow is really light in colour and will suit only the fairest of the skin tones! Whereas, the shade 02 natural glow is also light in colour but would still suit medium to wheatish skins if blended in properly! One thing which i have a problem with is the lack of shades catering to Indian markets! There are no options for dark skins whatsoever!


Texture
- The bb cream is very light weight and has a smooth, almost buttery texture! And buttery, not in a bad, greasy way! The cream goes on really smooth and blends in like a dream! The formula is extremely light weight and does not weigh down the skin! It gives a nice dewy finish and does not make the skin oily, but does not suit my oily skin much! Though it is okay for use in winters, but in summers it would require regular powder touch-ups.


Pigmentation and coverage- BB creams are generally not very high on pigmentation and they are meant to be that way! And Spawake BB creams have exactly the perfect "light-coverage" kind of a thing to it! As i said, it does not weigh the skin down, but also, does not cover up any dark circles! However, it does blur out minor imperfections and make the skin look evened out!

Staying power- The cream stays put for a good 4-5 hours without powdering in winters, and with a setting powder it can easily go as long as 6-7 hours with a touch up! And the best part is that it does not start looking patchy on the dry areas of your skin and fades out evenly! It does not just get wiped off the skin and fades away evenly.

Pros

-light weight

-moisturising

-smooth texture

-blends out well

-cute, travel friendly packaging

-has a decent staying power

-does not looks patchy on dry areas

-gives a dewy finish

Cons


-does not have good coverage

-does not suit oily skin

-does not have much shades to cater to indian skin tones


Final verdict- The BB cream has a really light-weight formula and gives a dewy, sheer finish which will look really natural if blended properly! Give it a try if you want a comfortable wear BB cream which does not look like makeup, but feels like it. :)

Rating- 4.2/5
