Palgantong Vita White BB Super Cover (Review and Swatches)

Sorry for the lack of posts. It’s been a crazy 2 months for me. I transitioned to a new role at work and I’m preparing for an Aussie trip! So excited! Okay, so let’s hop on to the review.

Palgantong Vita White BB Super Cover SPF 30 PA++ ; 30ml

Available at these online shops, BeautyandMineral, BeautyMNL

I got this BB cream as a free gift from Sample Room when I availed of their VIP membership. It was very generous of them to give away a full size product.  I have the shade #10 Light Beige which is the more yellow toned than #20 Natural Beige. Yep, they only have 2 shades.  Palgantong is a Japanese brand and they’re popular for their theatrical loose powder. It’s said to be used by Korean movie stars.

I’ve used this BB cream for about 3 weeks on and off when I had a light tan. It was too light for my skintone so I use a little bronzer so that I don’t look ghost-like. Coverage – it’s a very full coverage BB cream. Among the bb cream / cc cream / tinted moisturizers that I have, this has the fullest coverage. Shade – In the photos below, I know it looks pink compared to Laura Mercier and Bourjois and that’s just how it is. It’s not very yellow peeps, that’s why it can be ghost-like to medium skinned people. Longevity – I always set my base no matter what since I’m very oily and this stays on for 8-10 hours – but I get oily at the end of the day. The BB cream is  still there, a little patchy, but I am oily on my T-zone. Tried and tested since I used this to work several times and I commute most of the days.  Tip: A little goes a long way. Make sure not to use too much since you’ll look cakey at the end of the day and it’s not a beautiful sight.

As you can see, this looks a little “pink/white” on me. See my yellow neck. HAHA.

I got this for free so I’ll continue using it but I don’t think I’ll repurchase since I prefer my BB creams to have a little less coverage than this. Also, it’s kind of expensive so I wouldn’t really recommend it if you’re on a budget. It’s around 900-1100 pesos depends on where you get it and I know there are Korean BB creams that are cheaper with the same coverage.

Have you tried this BB cream? What do you think of it?
