Erborian BB Creme au Ginseng

I picked this BB cream up in Sephora during a recent trip to Paris. It's not French, however, but Korean. I've been using it daily for about 2 weeks and I have to say it's excellent.

It definitely bears more resemblance to my other Korean BB cream by Dr Jart than to European/American BB creams, in that it's very cool - possibly grey or ashy on some people - and pale. It has a lighter consistency than Dr Jart, making for a more natural finish and easier application. It goes on like a dream.

The formula contains ginseng, and promises a (slightly creepy-sounding) "baby skin" effect. My skin has not been transformed into an infant state, but it does look very even-toned and clear when I'm wearing this. I'm also pleased that it has a substantial SPF rating of 25 - box ticked.

My small (15ml) tube cost 12.00 euro at Sephora. I've done a quick Google and it looks like Erborian's BB creams (there are various types) are sold at Space NK costing £34. Hopefully this is for a larger tube than mine.

  1. It's actually French, although the owner is associated with someone in Korea. I tried this one years and years ago before all the Western brands started to make BB creams and I agree that it was a good one, however not really moisturizing, indeed a bit ashy looking, and at some point I couldn't stand the smell anymore.
