Ginvera New Launch – Green Tea range!~

GINVERA product review!! The Green Tea Aqua Whitening Cream and Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream!

camwhore picture taken with webcam~ because I gave up taking self shots when I can angle myself well looking at my own reflection! haha! Anyway, when I go for shoots I usually slap on thick makeup, and it includes the korean Coogi bb cream that provides awesome coverage, but I have little doubts that it’s extremely pore clogging. I bought a new bb cream from SASA recently that promises good coverage yet is very light and smooth, but I have yet to try it.

The Sample Store sponsored me this Ginvera range, and the highlight is its smell! Very pleasant and fresh!

I’ve never used Ginvera’s products extensively, but once in awhile I did buy their cleanser, toner and moisturizer, especially after beautiful Michelle Chia started endorsing the brand! They’re honestly pretty good, not some mature brand that our mothers use. But you gotta select the range that suits your skin type and needs most to be effectively, just like any other products.

I was gushing to Linda how wonderful this smells and feels good on the skin upon application! It really smoothens your skin to prepare it for makeup (or without, both are fine), and the thing I love about it it’s that it hydrates AND yet controls oil and sebum production, how cool?!

Always treasure products that not only covers up blemishes but also protects and nourishes skin from environmental damage. Another + point, it has a whitening formula!

Enriched with Green Tea Essence, Thanaka Extracts and Biogel, Ginvera Green Tea Aqua Whitening Cream.

HELPS: Skin whitening, UV protection, oil control, lightening of spots and acne scars, prevents the formation of pimples.

Its deep moisturizing and oil control effects help to effectively hydrate and clarify the skin for natural and radiant glow! Suitable for normal to combination skin.

$16.90 Net weight 40g

I enjoyed whitening cream – pleasant smelling, soft and lightly creamy, I like!

The effect is dewy and gives a glowy look! Once the cream is absorbed into your skin, your complexion immediately looks fairer, brighter and more flawless!

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream! This product feels as good as the whitening cream, also light and smooth and coverage is good – it also moisturizes, brightens and nourishes the skin and protects it from harmful UV rays with its SPF 30/PA++

Some perks of this BB cream, in my opinion –

1. non greasy, provides a natural matte finish

2. coverage is good yet looks natural

3. lightweight and gives an even tone to skin

4. smells fresh and pleasant

5. provides hydration for dewy and more radiant skin

Most bloggers who also reviewed this product mentioned that the colour is a little dark, especially for the fairer skinned girls, and I have to agree. However, you can always apply a thin layer of loose powder or two way foundation to lighten the overall appearance and results will still be desirable too!

HELPS : Nourishes skin, protects complexion against free radical damage, prevents the formation
of dark spots. Balances skin tone, brightens complexion.

I used this product for a recent beach shoot – see how even the cover is and matches my skin tone too with some touch ups?

My face doesn’t feel sticky or oily even after 2 hours of shoot at the beach 😉 the best part was, I love how it minimizes my pores so that my face looks tight and flawless!
