One of the most popular BB creams in Japan, Ishizawa Lab's Nanoce BB Moist Cream is described as a "natural moisturizing cream for all skin types".
I picked up the darker of only 2 shades, 02 Healthy Ochre which is a good match for my yellow toned, NC30 skin tone.
A little goes a long way, a tiny drop (.5 cm) is enough for the whole face.
Consistency is very smooth and creamy which makes it blend easily on the skin. Although its looks very yellow in the photo, its actually a good match for me because like most asians, I have yellow undertones. Being an all-in-one product, I figured it would be nice to take when traveling. Saves up space in the cosmetic case since I wont be needing separate sunscreen, primer, foundation and concealer. It feels moisturizing too. But I wouldn't dare to depend on a BB cream for skin care functions.
It gives off a semi-matte with a bit of a glowy finish (if that makes sense at all), leaves no grayish cast and can last all day (12 hours) if set with powder. It doesn't settle into fine lines, has good oil control and does not cake easily when layered. It offers medium coverage and can be layered to conceal blemishes for a flawless yet natural look.
Now for its weakness, Nanoce BB Moist Cream is not available locally, I got mine in CitySuper, Hong Kong for HKD248 (approx. USD32) which is quite expensive for a BB cream. I also dislike the screw-cap as I tend to drop and lose things.
But overall, its a high-quality BB cream. I would likely repurchase if ever I run out of it. I would recommend this if you have normal-combination skin like me.
Hurray for Friday! Have a fun weekend ahead!
