Fr3b and BB Cream Part II
I received 2 packages from Fr3b again!
The first package was received on Thursday.
And the 2nd package was received on Saturday.
In the first package, I received this! I checked out this package for the Lioele Water Drop BB Cream sample tube!
I heard raves from lunaface and wanted to try it out myself since there's gonna be a 30% discount on all Lioele products during the upcoming John Little sale.
Lioele Waterdrop BB Cream
Coverage : Sheer - Medium
Texture : Pretty liquidified. Extremely easy to manage.
Shade : This has a grey undertone which is pretty neutral that will suit both pink or yellow undertones.
Fragrance : Surprizingly, this BB Cream does not have any fragrance.
Oil-Control: Oil control is slightly above average. I'm not saying it has the best oil control but its definitely slightly above average. Something that I did not expect.
Dewy-ness: This BB Cream has a natural dewy finish!
Overall Comments: This is a BB cream that has truly WOW-ed me! Though its coverage is pretty sheer (you girls might need to buff on a layer of mineral makeup or a heavier coverage powder, I'm using Laura Geller Balance 'N' Brighten Compact in Fair to acheive full coverage), which was a little dissapointing but I'm pretty impressed by its oil control and dewyness. One would probably be deceived by its moisturizing factor that its not suitable for oily skin but its definitely not! Its moisturizing factor is extremely good for dehydrated skin. As such, I skip my day moisturizer when I'm using this. It has definitely kept my face hydrated throughout the day! Initially, I thought the BB Cream was too moisturizing as my face was shiny but when I tried to blot, its actually the dewyness that's making my face glow! With an SPF of 27, this BB Cream is definitely worth investing for those who have dehyrdated skin or work in a dry, air-conditioned enviornment. Its retailing for S$38 at John Little but with the upcoming sale of 30% off Lioele products, its definitely worth S$26.60!
Any fan of this Lioele Water Drop BB Cream out there?
And the package received on 28th.
Yet another reward from Fr3b. This time, all 18 of the top referrals received the same reward.
I can use the sachet of shampoo during my Bali trip! Thank you Fr3b!
Have you gotten your BB Cream samples from Fr3b yet?

Everytime I want to select the sample for This bb cream, it goes OOS. I only managed to get the Gowoonsesang BB and didn't manage to try this.
The packaging is pretty attractive though:D
WOW John little having 30% is pretty good offer for all the items I'm lemming for. <3 SALESSSS.

yes, the packaging of this bb cream is pretty princessy. in fact, the entire Lioele line is very princessy!
yup, 30% is a great bargain! hehe

Hi, would you mind to do a review on the Eucerin product and compare with the Vichy Normaderm?
I heard that Eucerin is pretty good as well. Thank you in advance!
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 03:44 am (UTC)
i sure will! I'm still waiting for the Eucerin toner to be back in stock. Once I get it, I'll make a comparision! ;)

They carried it below so i think it's never getting replenished again. >
Fri, Apr. 24th, 2009 07:50 am (UTC)

Mon, Mar. 30th, 2009 09:31 am (UTC)
Thanks for the review for the Water Drop BB Cream! =) I was wondering which one to get for the sale, the Beyong Solution or Water Drop. :3
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 03:44 am (UTC)
Lioele Beyond The Solution BB Cream was a huge dissapointment for me. :P
You should check this bb cream out! ;)
Mon, Mar. 30th, 2009 10:11 am (UTC)

Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 03:45 am (UTC)

Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 03:45 am (UTC)
if you have dehydrated skin, try this! its damn good!
Mon, Mar. 30th, 2009 03:20 pm (UTC)
Same here for me, wanted to order this BB cream but it's already OOS after a day it's been launched. haha.
Is this alot better in terms of oil control and coverage as compared to the Gowoonsesang BB Cream? My skinfood aloe and coogi are running low, need to find a good alternative heh :)
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 03:46 am (UTC)
oil control for this definitely wins Gowoonsesang. Coverage wise, Gowoonsesang has a weebit more coverage than this. ;)
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 05:09 am (UTC)
hi kim, how would you compare this between missha watery bb and l'egere water drop? I'm looking for something that's dewy and has gd oil control.
I've also read your reviews and i need something (another something? I'm starting to collect as well =D ) for serious oil control, between these which do you think is the best?
Brtc perfect recover
Skin79 shiny pearl drop
Skin79 dermaRX Control Balm
Missha watery bb
Advice much appreciated.
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 05:12 am (UTC)
for dewyness and oil control, it has to be missha watery. :)
brtc perfect recover has the best oil control among that list but i doubt its readily available. not even in korea now.
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 06:19 am (UTC)
well, get one 30ml tube as a trial first then. ;)
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 05:48 am (UTC)
sry to add, but does john little or sasa stock missha bb? It'd be great to get some during the jl sale.
Tue, Mar. 31st, 2009 06:16 am (UTC)
Missha has left the Singapore market. You can only find a small selection of Missha products at the bigger Guardians. But they do not stock any Missha BB Creams.

wah this Lioele Water Drop BB Cream sounds like a good buy. I've been quite annoyed with BRTC cos i find the shades too whitish and coverage is too thick
anyways... the jl sale you're talking about is the one at Marina Sq/PS right? tdy n tml only? sorry man i havent been out of school in ages i have no idea what's going on outsides =x
Wed, Apr. 1st, 2009 05:07 am (UTC)
if you're tanner, look into L'egere BB Creams too. They are also available at JL. I'm in the midst of completing my reviews for L'egere BB creams. it should be up tomorrow. ;)
Yup, the sale is only at MS and PS for 2 days. I posted the mailer here: http://kimoko.livejournal.com/327045.html
Thu, Apr. 2nd, 2009 02:13 am (UTC)
cool! I'll try to go PS today... i'm actually quite fair, just that the BRTCs tend to only look my-shade after it oxidises, lke 1 hr after application so annoying
thanks for info!! hehe :)
Wed, Apr. 8th, 2009 07:10 am (UTC)
Update: I went and got it at the JL sale, and tried it today, i dont have shade problems, ez to blend too omg :D but i keep smelling the spf hehe.... thanks babe for all the info/review! :)
Sat, Apr. 11th, 2009 06:42 am (UTC)

Fri, Apr. 10th, 2009 05:59 am (UTC)
Lioele Waterdrop BB Cream - wanted to try this! Time for me to check out fr3b, not logged in there for a while...
Sat, Apr. 11th, 2009 06:55 am (UTC)

Fri, Apr. 24th, 2009 06:21 am (UTC)
I just got around to it today and it's all out! I think it's your "fault", since you gave it such a glowing review and &$#*( numbers of people stalk your blog! hahaha.....
Fri, Apr. 24th, 2009 07:51 am (UTC)
