Hello hello! Last Friday, I went to lunch with a few other bloggers for the recently-launched Fine Fairness BB Cream by Neutrogena. It was an intimate event (there were only seven of us) and I was super-glad because I haven’t been feeling pretty lately. I chalk it up to too many late nights (spent working!!!), not enough exercise, and unhealthy eating habits!

This is actually my first foray into Neutrogena’s Fine Fairness line, though I am familiar with their products, particularly the Hydro Boost line (I especially love the Hydro Boost Water Gel, which has been my moisturizer since May last year). I tend to avoid products that promise fairer skin because if they do actually deliver, that would mean I’d have to adjust my whole life (just a little bit dramatic there)! Plus, I hate this obsession most Asians have with whiter skin.

The truth is, some days, I do wish I were a few notches fairer. On some days, I also want to have a golden tan (and an afro and some sass). I often wish that skin colors came in bottles like hair dye!

Moving on, I have been on the lookout for the perfect BB cream and the Fine Fairness BB Cream couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

Neutrogena Fine Fairness BB Cream

Achieve instant fairness and inner whitening with the new NEUTROGENA® FINE FAIRNESS® BB CREAM UV

Patience is a virtue, they say. And most whitening products will test that virtue by having you wait several months before you see your whitening product take effect. But sometimes, you need fairer skin RIGHT NOW. So NEUTROGENA® is giving you just that.

The new NEUTROGENA® FINE FAIRNESS® BB Cream UV provides instant fairness and blemish-free skin through special skintone-matching minerals. Because NEUTROGENA® is a strong advocate of healthy beauty, this BB Cream also contains the science of FINE FAIRNESS® to work within your skin and provide continuous whitening from the inside out.

The FINE FAIRNESS® BB Cream UV is the final addition to the existing FINE FAIRNESS® line, which currently consists of a Cleanser, Toner, Lotion SPF30, Night Cream, UV Sunblock, Serum, and Whitening Mask.

About BB Cream

BB Cream, which stands for Blemish Balm, is one of the newest skincare phenomena to hit the market. BB Creams began in Germany as a concealer for post-surgery scars. When Korean actresses started to use BB Creams, a revolution in skincare was born. Known to provide excellent coverage that immediately hides blemishes, the BB Cream has become an essential item for instantly smooth and fair skin.

True to the brand’s commitment of providing women with healthy beauty, the FINE FAIRNESS® BB Cream UV contains naturally-occurring minerals, Mica and Titanium Dioxide. When applied to the skin, these minerals match with the skintone to deliver instant blemish coverage.

FINE FAIRNESS® BB Cream

Now, combine the immediate fairness of BB Cream and the in-depth whitening powers of FINE FAIRNESS®. The result? A moisturizer that instantly corrects blemishes and works from within to continuously whiten skin. At a special introductory rate of P575 (20% discount from P720) for the month of February, this latest product from NEUTROGENA® is exclusively available at Watsons.

I have been using the Fine Fairness BB Cream since Saturday and I quite like it. I’ll give it a few more days before writing a review.
