When you live in a tropical country like the Philippines, having an oily face puts you at a disadvantage—you need to be prepared with your powder and oil blotting papers unless you want to look like a greasy mess. And as someone who has skin that slicks up a lot, I'm always on the hunt for something that can mattify my face and keep me looking "fresh lang" throughout the day. Today, I'm happy to report that I've found a product that can do just that.
I tried out the Pond's Magic BB Powder, a brightening product that only costs a ~*whopping*~ P89.
After using it for a few days, here's everything I love about it:
It mattifies the face.
I have an oily complexion, and the Pond's Magic BB Powder works great for mattifying my face. It's not really marketed as a setting powder, so I do have to touch up every few hours or so. But with its affordable price tag, I don't really mind reapplying.
It brightens the skin tone.
A layer of the Magic BB Powder can immediately brighten up my skin tone and give me a ~pinkish glow~ Pond's is known for. As for coverage, the powder does have a beige tint, but it won't really do much as it's so lightweight. I still recommend that you use a concealer to camouflage the blemishes.
It has a lightweight texture.
Do you know how with some powders, you can just feel them sitting on top of your face? I'm happy to report that the Pond's Magic BB Powder is so lightweight, it's like you have nothing on!
It doesn't look cakey.
I can apply layers of this powder and it still won't look cakey. Winner!
It has an affordable price tag.
At only P89, I can't go wrong with its affordable price tag. Time to stock up!
