Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Healing Blemish Base BB Cream is one of the more upscale BB Creams you can get in Korea. This particularly formula supposedly acts as both a concealer and base all in one while perfecting skin, offering basic sun protection, and evening out skin tone.
Take a look!
Contrary to the name there isn’t anything healing about this formula nor does it contain ingredients that heal skin. Although it is supposed to treat blemishes somehow, it doesn’t really contain the ingredients to back that up so don’t expect to purchase it and have it act as a skincare as well as a base. It is recommended for blemish prone skin and supposedly treats blemishes without irritating sensitive skin.
This is however, BB Cream at its best formula wise. This is a very thick, creamy formula which blends easily onto skin leaving behind a semi-matte finish that covers minor to medium issues on skin such as dark spots, age spots, acne scarring, redness, etc….coverage is sheer to medium depending how much you apply and offers a flawless, even finish.
That’s the great thing about Asian BB Creams they offer incredible coverage and an airbrushed appearance which looks natural on skin and is incredibly lightweight. I use a palming method to apply the BB Cream onto my face and this allows breathable, sheered out coverage to ease my dullness and perfect my skin. I’m not looking to conceal or hide anything as my skin is perfectly fine as is. I am however, looking to ease my lackluster skin and dullness, perfect it for makeup, and create the look of natural skin.
The joy of BB Creams is the fact they are never greasy or oily feeling no matter how thick, rich and creamy they are. This has offers opaque coverage without feeling like a mask or over hydrating skin the way a tinted moisturizer might be guilty of.
It is a whitening formula with temporary whitening benefits but not long term ones. The shade does have strong pink undertones but should be suitable for lighter to medium skin tones just not those with tanned or darker tones or even those with strong warm undertones. It’s a smidge to light for me at first application but quickly adjusts as it sets and looks perfect once makeup is applied. Generally it does continue to look lighter through the wear but that would because it whitens during the wear. This may or may not scare you. It’s not a pasty, unnatural look but the whitening is an temporary effect through the wear.
As with most good BB Creams I don’t have issues with it wearing away or fading. It typically lasts a solid eight hours for me without fading, oxidizing, or looking like it needs a touch up!
Overall, Dr Jart Detox Healing Blemish Base BB Cream is one of the more upscale and beautifully textured BB Creams you’ll find around however, it’s a product that takes time and patience to apply correctly. It is a frustrating BB Cream at first application as you have to get just the right amount onto skin during application. Too much and it looks unnatural, too little and you’re not enjoying all the benefits it can offer….however, this slight learning curve is well worth it as the coverage is flawless and beautiful when applied correctly.
Sasa.com sells most of Dr Jart’s Korean line and of course, Sephora carries some of Dr Jart’s more popular products unfortunately this black label hasn’t yet made it to the US.
