​BeBoua’s Review:

I wanted to like this product more but at the end, it was just ok for my skin. I have combination skin, t-zone oily and the rest are a bit dry. I wasn’t sure which to get but at the end I purchased - Cover #23 (C23), the darkest color for my medium beige skin tone. The package comes in a dark blue and in it, it includes: compact case, cushion, and an extra refill. The compact is simple can classy looking. The BB cream has a bit of floral smell to it.

​When I first use the IOPE Air Cushion, my skin was nicely covered and dewy looking. Even though I got the darkest color they offered it still made my face look pale. It’s really noticeable from my pale looking face and my medium beige neck.

I had to contour my face and blend my face and neck shades together so it won’t look so weird. In a couple of hours even after my primer, the BB cream already started to fade away and my face started to feel dry. The good thing is that since its compact, I was able to carry it with me and use it as needed.
 

I thought it was a good idea to use the BB cream throughout the day since it was so compact and I can carry it with me and reapply as sunscreen. But that would mean I would have to re-contour my face. However, as long as I lightly patched it here and there, it’s not so pale looking.  Another issue I had with this product is that it made my face flaky, dried and cakey looking when I reapply. It was a bit disappointing that I can’t use it throughout the day. I didn’t want to look pale or deal with the hassle of contouring; I only use this as my morning foundation and use other BB cream/ sunblock throughout the day.

Pros:

  • Dewy and glowy looking
  • SPF 50+
  • Compact & easy to carry
  • Refillable
  • Comes with sponge pad

Cons:

  • Not a good variety for darker skin tone shades
  • BB cream doesn’t stay long on skin long
  • Dry/Flakey/Cakey looking when reapplies to the skin
  • Floral smell

​Bottom Line:

This is more of the mid to high end brand. The floral smell can be a bit strong for sensitive skin and cause a breakout reaction. This BB cream did not break me out however it did dry out my skin and made it flakey. I cannot let the dry skin linger around my face too long as it does cause acne. Therefore every time I use this, I would have to exfoliate every night just to make sure my skin stay smooth. This product does work well for a lot of people but for my combination skin, it didn’t do much. Also it didn’t help that my face was pale and had to put some time contouring my face to blend the colors together. It’s actually more of a hassle than convenient for me. I don’t think I will be purchasing this again. I will continue to look for a different cushion BB cream compact for myself.
