Ever Bilena Advance BB Cream
Almost all cosmetic brands have their own version of BBCream
. Not only the high end ones, but also drugstore brands are at pace when it comes to quality. The first BB Cream that I owned was from Maybelline
. It was the Clear Smooth Minerals BB Cream. Although it wasn’t my exact skintone, still I managed to use it. Now I found a new BB Cream, which I think is the most affordable BB Cream sold here in the Philippines. It’s the Ever Bilena Advance BB Cream.
It comes in two variants which are the Anti-Wrinkle and Whitening. Each has a different shade, but my exact shade was on the Whitening variant. It comes in the shade Oriental which is in a neutral beige with a yellow undertone. We all know that the most common con about BB Creams is the shade selection. Sometimes it only comes in one shade, some may have more than one but mostly in a pink to light beige shade and doesn’t have anything that has a yellow undertone.

With this EB Advance BB Cream, its definitely suited for Filipino women that has a light skin tone. This product comes In a squeezable tube and has 50 grams in it. Imagine a BB Cream that has 50 grams of product but only costs PHP195? I don’t think any BB Cream can beat that. J
Where the glamour starts :)
It has a pretty thick consistency and might be a little hard to blend with just your fingers as a tool. However I highly recommend using a brush preferably a flat top kabuki brush for a more flawless finish.
I tried it on my face immediately after I got home and I definitely love it. Here are photos of me applying the product on my bare face.
bare and boring face :p
After Skincare, I squeezed out a pea size amount onto my fingers and distribute it all over my face. Using my Retractable Kabuki Brush
, I blended everything in down to my jawline.
As I was in the process of applying the first layer of product to my face. Hello Flawless! :)
As you can see, most of my blemishes, dark circles and discoloration were concealed with only just one layer. I would say, thi BB Cream gave me medium coverage. For me to see if it’s blendable, I added a second layer with the same pea size amount on my fingers and still using my brush to blend everything in.
I was pretty aghast with the result. it is really buildable and this time, i had a flawless full coverage on my face. What I have on is a dewy finish and what I really noticed is that, my pores weren’t really showing up that much. Although you may feel that it’s pretty heavy on the face, but it just looks like your skin was effortlessly enhanced with something magical.
My All time favorite, Holy Grail Translucent Powder! Estee Lauder!
Setting my BB Cream with Powder
Now my face looks perfectly mattified and flawless. To check its longevity, I waited 6 hours to see if my face still looks matte, dewy or shiny already. This demo by the way was done during a very hot and humid afternoon. Although most of the time I only stayed indoors, the place wasn’t air-conditioned at all but was pretty well ventilated. Since I’m a full time mom, during that 6 long hours I was babysitting and yes it involved a lot of sweating.
Voila! My face still look decent despite all the sweating going on the past 6 hours. My T-Zone started to feel oily already but its very manageable. My blemishes also started to show, but nevertheless I got more than my money’s worth.

Imagine an affordable BB Cream, with some skin benefits gave me extra special coverage and amazing flawless looking skin. I definitely will suggest this product to my friends and family since I find it really really good. Also for a fact that I didn’t breakout means, it will also be unlikely to people who don’t have sensitive skin to breakout as well.
This product is definitely a perfect 10 for me. Although it couldv’e been better if there were more shades to choose from so that it could also cater women of color. Also this BB Cream has a powdery smell that’s a little too strong for me but the goodness it gave to my face makes me forget all that little cons and just left me extremely happy with the result. This is definitely a must try and a must have especially to those who are on a budget but would still want to look good even during hot and humid days!
