Review: BB Cream

My boyfriend bought me The Odbo BB cream as one of his pasalubong from Korea. I'm really not fond of using BB cream since I think it will not suit me. I don't have a fair skin and it somewhat appears shiny on the face. Since I have an oily T-zone, it will aggravate further my condition. Another thing is that I have never heard of the brand before. My first instinct was to read online reviews.

Upon reading, I got enticed and I was really excited to try it. My boyfriend told me that he was able to buy this from Nature Republic in Seoul. Unfortunately, the Odbo isn't yet available in the Philippines.

So here's about the product.

The description at the back is written in Korean. So, it doesn't give details about its ingredients, how to use it, etc. However, at the front area, it reads,
  • skin favoring bb cream 
  • provides sensitive skin protection against environments 
  • leaves skin moist and radiant with botanical squalene and hyaluronic acid 

It blends perfectly to your skin tone!

Here are the photos when applied to the face:

With BB Cream
As you can see, it gave freshness, and radiance to the face. :D

How it looks when used as a primer:

Please disregard the face of my boyfriend! HAHA :)) This photo was taken after a night long of dinner and malling. It indeed has a right amount of moist and radiance that lasts! :D

  1. It matches all skin tones. It blends in your tone and it looks natural.
  2. My skin doesn't look oily nor dry. It gives your skin lasting moisture and radiance. 
  3. Protects your skin in all types of environments. It adjusts on the surroundings' temperature. 
  4. Easy to apply.
  5. Has a mild scent and hypoallergenic.
  6. Can be used as a primer.
  1. Not yet available in the Philippines. 
  2. It is quite expensive. It is 48 USD. In peso, with our current exchange rate, it is around P 2,000 - P 2,100. 
  3. With it's quality, none so far. 
It is my first time to use The Odbo BB Cream and it is great! I'm trying to scrimp on using it. I really do wish that this product will be soon available in the Philippines. :)

Always remember that quality comes with the price.


  1. I would like to know do you need to use a makeup remover to remove the bb cream?or juz normal facial wash?

    1. Hi Sarah. Yes, it is best to use makeup remover to completely remove the bb cream.
