Since Dr Jart released Water Fuse Beauty Balm on Sephora I’ve gotten several hundred e-mails asking me if it was anything like the Dr Jart Dew Drop BB Cream. I think someone had even commented on my review post of the Water Fuse and said it was the same product as the Dew Drop Blemish Base.
I think alot of you that may already own the Dew Drop version were curious whether you needed to haul the US version.
I’m here to say the two products are completely different right down to the SPF levels each contains, the color, and the formula.
A hydrating water based BB Cream.
Worst BB Cream I ever used. I hate it. Which surprises me because I really do prefer a hydrating base product but I dislike the texture and formula of this in a major way.
First off Dew Drop has an SPF 27 where as the Water Fuse version has an SPF 25. The Dew Drop’s formula is a runny, watery, mousse type product versus the Water Fuse version which is rich, thick, and creamy. The shade of the Dew Drop formula is a gray beige shade versus the pinker, creamy beige tone of the Water Fuse version. If you have Dew Drop already, I suggest buying Water Fuse because it’s a superior product in terms of formula. I think Dew Drop isn’t nearly as good so if you’re going to indulge go with the US version.
I dislike the formula on Dew Drop because it’s runny, watery, and it comes out of the tube in a big old splash of water. The product looks like it was separated from the pigments and simply reminds me of old makeup. To add insult to injury I find it blends awful. A formula with this much water content lacks color pay off and blends out in a patchy, uneven layer on skin and for some odd reason, even with that much moisture involved, it accentuates dry areas on my face in a really bad way.
The color adjusts well however it does lack pigment so it’ll only prefect skin it won’t conceal problem areas such as redness, acne scarring, etc…It does have a grayish cast to give a brightening/whitening effect but the color seems to adjust after a few minutes and fits my skin without any issues.
- Those with oily skin that want an oil-free, water infused BB Cream.
- Those wanting a creamy Blemish Balm.
- Those wanting a pigmented BB Cream.
- Those wanting a high level SPF (this is SPF 27).
- Those unwilling to shop online, deal with airmail, etc…(the Dew Drop version is available within Korea)
I hope this answers the question about the differents between the Dew Drop and Water Fuse versions of this BB Cream. I personally feel they are vastly different products and the Water Fuse version here in the US is surprisingly better than the one available in Korea. I’ve always been very pleased with most BB Creams I’ve tried but this was one of the worst and that surprises me as my skin is dry and it should have appreciated the higher water content of the formula. Those with oily skin might appreciate the oil-free, lighter formula but I’m doubting even that could convince anyone that this is worth a go.
