Lancome BB Complete is my first foray into the luxury BB cream kingdom. All the BB creams I’ve tried are Asian — Etude House, Lioele, Skin79, Missha. It was in South Korea where this product initially boomed being hailed as celebrities’ secret to their flawless and glowing skin. But did you know it actually originated from Germany and was used to treat and heal derma patients’ scars after surgery? BB meaning blemish balm is supposedly a healing treatment completely erases marks from a dermatological operation.

The BB comes in only two colors, 01 and 02 — for beige pink and yellow undertones respectively. Since mine came in the Lancome Beauty Box I received from my mom-in-law, I wasn’t able to pick the shade as the box included the 01 by default. The consistency of the BB is not too thick nor too runny. It spreads easily and blends into the skin nicely — as seen in the photo below.
You need very little to cover your entire face. Sheer, light coverage and not buildable. It’s not meant to be a foundation so you will need to layer on your concealer for your darker spots and scars. It somehow whitens your complexion without it looking too unnatural and ghostly. But then, you’d have to wait until this BB completely settles before finishing it with a setting powder to get a satisfying result. I’ve experienced this with the Lioele and Missha BB sans the grey cast lingering after.
On great days where I’ve had 6+ hours of sleep, I can skip my concealer and moisturizer as this isn’t drying at all. Also, for someone a bit oily as me who has to blot at least four times a day, I’ve only had to blot ONCE with this BB cream on.
I would NOT wear this to a night event where flash photography will be around. But it is great for daily wear especially with the 50SPF that guards your face from harmful sun exposure.
For a high-end BB cream, I certainly can’t tell it apart from my other Asian BB creams that are priced significantly lower. However, I am impressed with the oil-control properties, high SPF content and radiant glow this one particularly gives me. I would have to revisit other BB creams and see the comparison vs this one again before I can say that I will repurchase this.
