Review: 4U2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder SPF 15 PA++

I have an oily face so I need to have a pressed powder on hand. I was looking around Watsons a week back and I saw this cute little packaging and I remembered reading a review about this product. I checked it out and was quite disappointed that it's only available in shade #3 which is a bit dark for my skin tone but when I looked around the whole rack of 4U2 cosmetics there at the right most part was another compact powder I reached for it and found it in shade #2. I immediately grabbed it along with the BB cream and paid for it coz I heard this BB powder is always out of stock >.<




4U2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB powder SPF15++ comes in a cute little packaging that made my friends always coo whenever they see it. They said it looks like a sailor moon compact. (Moon prism power, make up!!!!!! lol) My guy friend who always borrow a mirror from me got embarrassed while holding this one ^0^. The price is also very affordable for just 194php roughly around 4$-5$, this compact is the cheapest bb powder that I've encountered. This is made from Thailand under a US based company named 4U2 cosmetics visit their site for more information here


Product claims that it is a confidence builder through all day complexion perfection. Exclusive formulation for even natural skin tones and oil control. With sun protection, too. Be a dreamGirl. It also says that it is suitable for all skin types. I have high hopes for this product so I decided to use this as my daily powder and it did not fail me at all. I used this as a substitute for my BB cream when I go to school. For the first two hours, my face was shine free. After that though as I have an oily face, I need to puff some powder on just my nose area. 

Swatch on my finger :)

The true test for this baby came yesterday though, we had an event that I've blogged about before here. I applied the powder before I left home at around 6:30am. I puffed some on my nose before the event started at 12:00pm. It was a screening so we were shouting and cheering inside the theater for a good 3 hours. After the event our head told us to go outside and show our gratitude by saying "Thank you" to all the people who attended, I panicked since I knew that I don't look presentable at all, I grabbed this BB powder and apply it on the spot before everyone came out. When everyone comes out, all of us were bowing and saying "Thank you for coming" when a friend approach me and greeted me by saying "Wow, you look fresh nakapag retouch na ng make up ha!" (Wow, you look fresh. You manage to retouch your make-up ha!) I just laughed and express my gratitude to her. I was really wow-ed by this product. The finish did not look as any other powder, it really did look like a BB cream matte velvety finish. It's not cakey at all.


There are only  two things I dislike about this product one is that there is no plastic separator between the powder itself and the puff applicator. Second one is the ingredients, it contains talc which can cause cancer and Propylparaben which can irritate eyes and skin. Other than that this product is a must try!

Overall Rating: 4.5/5 (Less .5 for the things that I dislike)
Repurchase: YES DEFINITELY

Have you tried this product or any other BB powder? How was it?

My dad notice that I've been quite stressed this past two weeks because of exams and events, he bought me these!

Left to right:
Watsons Sakurabella body scrub
Earth Origins Coconut and Almond Hot Oil Cream
Watsons Green tea and cucumber soothing body lotion

YAY for my daddy! He managed to buy all of these :) It's a big achievement for him since he wasn't a fan of Watsons or just a cosmetics store in general. I've always been a daddy's girl~ Regards to all your dads!

    I have to say I am jealous of this BB cream! I have never hear of this brand before and that packaging is absolutely adorable. I too was a childhood fan of sailor moon and yes it does look like her pendant :)
