Chi Chi's Super BB Cream got my attention because the box says it has caviar extract. Did I really want to put a product that contains fish eggs on my face? Curiosity got the best of me, so I tried it out. No, it doesn't smell at all fishy. This BB cream actually contains a whole lot of goodies, including collguard, green tea extract and live fruit oil. It's SPF 30, and supposedly has anti-aging properties. I love BB creams because they help your skin stay healthy, while providing coverage. It makes my morning make-up routine so much faster!
I have relatively fair skin, and tried the medium tone. Surprisingly the colour wasn't too far off. It's a little darker than what I would normally wear, but it gave my skin a very natural sunkissed look. It blended well when I rubbed it into my neck, so I avoided that horrid two tone look.
This BB cream also claims to be ultra moisturising, which it was, but I'm afraid it didn't really work in my favour. I tend to use oil-free products as much as possible, so it's moisturising properties made this BB cream feel a little too sticky for my liking. I also found that while giving me a great colour, it's coverage of minor blemishes wasn't the best. Being so light in terms of coverage, I'd call this BB cream one to stick with during the day, and to avoid at night when you want heavier make-up.
