Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50 Foundation Review

Thursday 11 July 2019

Whilst watching my favourite You Tuber Tati Westbrook (GlamLifeGuru) lately, she was very positive about the Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control SPF50 Foundation. I had never previously come across the brand, but I trust Tati, it mentioned pore control and has SPF50 so I was all over that. I ended up finding it on Amazon although it wasn't easy to find in the UK.
I ordered the shade No.13 Ivory, and I believe that there are just eight shades available, which obviously isn't the best shade range around. This isn't a new foundation, and it has been around for a good few years now, but I do love to try different products. The Laneige Pore Control has a semi-matte finish and is mostly targeted at oily skin tones and as I have combination, with the majority of my face being oily, I knew this would be the best option for me.
Even though it is a BB Cream, the product does have a slight powdery finish and claims to control oiliness which I found worked really well for me. The packaging is pretty, with grey, white and mint along with a holographic finish. The compact opens up to reveal a mirror on the inside of the lid, a sponge puff, and then the foundation itself is protected by another lid. You do also receive a refill which I thought was excellent value, and it means you have a spare on hand whenever you run out.
The majority of Korean cushion foundations have a high SPF rating, and this one comes with SPF50 which is so great. I wish UK foundation brands took this on board as it is so important. The texture is soft and lightweight and although the sponge puff isn't terrible, I much prefer to dip my Beauty Blender in there. This gives a light to medium coverage and it is buildable and very lightweight and cooling on the skin, which is really want you want from a foundation in the Summer time.
With regards to the Pore Control aspect, I couldn't rate this high enough, I tried it without a primer and my pores, which I strongly dislike, were covered and not at all noticeable so A+ to Laneige for that! As I mentioned, it isn't the easiest product to get a hold of here in the UK. I found mine on Amazon for £23.48 which for a large compact of foundation and a spare, I think is excellent value. You can find it on Amazon here.
All the Loves,
