I haven’t completely given up on BB creams yet and after reading Kathi’s review of SANA’s bizarrely named Quzulan Gelo Liquid BB Essence I figured that Shade 02 might actually work (Shade 01 was way too dark for Kathi).
SANA is one of my favourite Japanese brands! I figured I try a Japanese made BB product rather than a Korean one for once:
Quzulan Gelo is supposed to be a 6 in 1 product!
This product is supposed to be:
2. Pore Cover
4. Special Treatment
5. UV Protection
6. Makeup Base
Here is the imagery – I think the idea is that your skin will be a smooth as a statue!
The packaging – it’s simple but good, although you only get a puny 25ml!
Alas, shade 02 is still a tad too light for me – about a shade and a half I’d say. I think this would work up to a NC30. I really don’t like base products that are too light, I hate that ashy effect on my skin.
This liquid BB is quite a nice texture -I find most BB’s too thick and oily. This one doesn’t have those two problems which is an advantage
The coverage is decent. Here is my skin before:
After – it covers pores and redness quite well! It also conceals nicely under the eyes but I just wish it was a notch darker. I like that it does a lot of different things though – time saving!
Also I didn’t have any allergies or reactions to this.
Worth trying out if you want a all in one product and you have light skin.
I bought this from adambeauty.com for about £11.
