Tip 1: Ecobeau is free from synthetic preservatives and alcohol. Nevertheless, if you have highly sensitive skin condition, do spot test for allergy before actual use. Refer to Skin Care Tips on website.
Tip 2: Ecobeau BB Plus is specially formulated for ladies who prefer natural and sheer coverage (matte finishing). To apply, squeeze out bean-size BB cream and dab onto 5 spots (cheeks, eye area, fore head, chin and nose area) of your face after your usual skin care regime (cleanser -> toner -> moisturizer). Pat and gently spread the BB cream in outward direction to ensure a natural and good spread of the cream. Don’t be worried if your face appears a little fairer than usual. It will settle in after a while. Pat a few times (gently) to warm up the skin and enhance adsorption. For ladies with eye circles, you may wish to increase the coverage at the eye area for flawless finish. Unlike foundation, BB cream does not clog the skin and when used in the long run, will improve skin condition and even out skin tone.
Made in Korea & ** No Alcohol, No Preservatives, No Parabens.
Product contains natural minerals and botanical extracts. If you are unsure of any skin allergy, do a spot test before you use it by placing a small dab on the inside of the crease of your elbow.
Price: $ 33 for 50 ml
The Ecobeau BB plus cream comes in a lime grassy green plastic squeeze tube and it has a nozzle that dispenses the product. The packaging is simple but eye catchy. It is travel friendly. You can pop it into your handbag even.
The product is a thick paste so initially it was bit difficult to squeeze it out. After a few uses, it went ok. The texture is hard and thick. The formula is pretty thick so it takes some work to get it blended into the skin.
Ecobeau has two variants in BB – BB Cream and BB Plus. Both appear same. BB cream has yellow undertones whereas BB plus has a grey undertone. BB plus cream looked darker for my skin type. I tried it and found out that it has a grayish base. It made my skin fairer with a white cast initially but it settled down in few minutes.
It is very grey for the first couple of seconds. I was scared at first with this grey cast on my fair skin but in a couple of seconds it adjusted to my skin tone and looked absolutely naturally. You need to use a thin layer of this cream on your skin. The paste being thick is bit tricky to blend. It blends easily with a tiny dab of moisturizer.
A little goes a long way. The BB plus cream has high SPF factor for sun protection. It evened out my skin tone. The BB plus cream is light weighted and can be used daily. It neither feels heavy nor does it sit on top of skin. It absorbs well leaving behind a natural look. It has a mild fragrance to it.
It controlled the oiliness of my skin upto 6 hours on humid days after which it oxidized a bit. It lasts longer in air conditioned environments as opposed to high humidity. I agree that it has sebum control properties. It makes my pores less visible and overall it smoothes my face. It didn’t flake or lead to any dryness. The staying power is good.
My cheeks felt soft with this cream on and the biggest bonus was that this BB cream didn’t clog my pores.The coverage is light to medium depending on how much product you use. You can build the coverage. I use a setting powder on top of this cream and I get glowing fine skin.
The finish is dewy when you use it with a moisturizer. You get matte finish when you use a compact.
The ingredients are safe and natural. This BB cream has less silicones in it. It contains only 0.3% Dimethicone. It covers imperfections fairly well. The cream is water resistant too.

I really like this BB cream because It suits my skin type. I have open pores and acne scarring and this covers them and evens out everything while still looking natural! It doesn’t feel like you are wearing something on your face. I love this BB plus cream.
This cream is a boon for oily acne prone sensitive skinned beauties. All in all I think this is a really great buy if you’re looking for a BB cream that’s more than just a “tinted moisturizer”. This one comes with SPF 28, matte finish and sebum control.
