When I heard that Guerlain is releasing a new BB Cream, I became so excited to know more and to try the product. This BB Hydra Aqua Serum is part of Guerlain’s Super Aqua Serum which emphasizes so much of hydrating the skin.
Guerlain BB Hydra Aqua Serum comes in a squeezable long tube. There’s nothing fanciful about the packaging; it looks simple an practical. There are two shades available – light and medium. Mine is light.
The initial reaction I have when I first try it is the lightness of the bb cream texture. It feels very light in texture and it makes me feel like i am not wearing anything on my face. I have tried and used this BB cream for couple of times and I have found that the coverage of this BB cream is very light. This bb cream is also packed with SPF 25 to protect our skin from the UV rays.
On my swatch here, you can see that the coverage of BB hydra is light but you can still see the difference of my skin with and without the bb cream.
I have tried several ways to apply this bb cream but what I find most useful is to put the bb cream all over my face with my finger lightly and dab it with my finger. In this way, I feel like the bb cream is applied more evenly. The finish of the bb cream is lumimous without being shiny.
Comparing to the Lingerie de Peau BB Cream, Hydra Aqua Serum BB Cream has a much lighter coverage. The size of the tube is similar but lingerie de peau tube comes with a pump. Both products carry a signature Guerlain scent but Hydra Aqua Serum has a lighter scent compared to Lingerie de Peau.
I would recommend this BB cream for any one of you who prefers a light texture bb cream with light coverage for daily use. After using this for many times, I like this best when I am having this on my outdoor activities; when I am exposed to the sun and when light make up is the thing I need. Most of the time, I will still prefer lingerie de peau bb cream for its coverage and finish.
