3 Lab Perfect BB Cream launched some months ago in three shades. It’s one of the most expensive BB Creams I’ve seen launched in the US market priced at a whooping $95.
It was created to not only protect skin with an SPF 40 (titanium dioxide) but also to regenerate cells using Phytocell Tec and Nano Clair GY.
Let’s take a look!
Although I am wincing at the price tag I must say this is one of the better BB Creams formulas I’ve come across that has launched in the US market.
This comes in light, medium, and dark. Medium seems to be a perfect for my skin tone and although a touch too dark it does adjust well after makeup is in place. The titanium dioxide is an excellent source of sun protection and doesn’t seem to take away from the texture or formula of the product. I don’t feel like the formula has an SPF smell, it doesn’t leave skin pasty after application, nor does it morph the formulation of the overall BB Cream making it loose or runny.
The creamy texture blends easily into skin providing moisture with a lightweight feel and finish that feels like second skin. Coverage isn’t exactly the same as BB Creams I’ve tried from Korea as it runs a touch sheerer but there is enough pigmentation here to ease redness, dullness, or minor problem areas (acne scarring or acne itself might need a touch more coverage). I’d say you can go from sheer to medium coverage here easily without the product looking over done or too heavy.
Supposedly it regenerates cells however, I’ve been using it daily since it launched (few months) and haven’t really noticed any major changes in my skin. Of course, I don’t have finer lines or wrinkles either as of yet which can benefit from a renewal of cells…however, I am skeptical of anything that promises to regenerate cells.
As I mentioned above this is an excellent source for revitalizing skin as it leaves duller skin looking brighter and more even toned. It creates a beautiful airbrushed, second skin finish for makeup that’s very lightweight and unnoticeable. It has an excellent wear time of around 7 to 8 hours in cooler weather and around 5 to 6 in warmth or humidity.
Although creamy and hydrating it should prove easy to wear for most skin types but dry skin types will like the formula the most since it doesn’t accentuate dry areas merely melds with skin creating a perfectly smooth, even layer.
3 Lab Perfect BB Cream pretty much covers all the bases and benefits of a good BB Cream by providing excellent coverage, high SPF, and an anti-aging formula. However, the price tag isn’t exactly friendly and I’m unsure how many are willing to dish out near $100 for a tube….
On the upside a single tube should last you quite a long time as a little of this BB goes a very long way at creating flawless, beautiful skin.
It’s just shy of being Muse Approved due to that higher price tag.
Excellent BB Cream just wish it was a little cheaper.
