Quo BB Cream Review

The latest brand to come out with a BB cream is Quo (available at Shoppers Drug Mart), and they not only have a BB Cream but a whole line of BB products, including primer and setting powder.

Quo BB Products

Now, the BB Cream itself is fairly standard, but I do have to say that out of all the ones I’ve tried it is the one that has a true BB Cream finish.  That is, it’s got decent coverage and leaves you with a dewy flawless complexion.  Truly if it weren’t so moisturizing, I’d say that it covers more like a traditional foundation.

However, unlike the traditional BB Creams, this one comes in a nice range of colours, and there are options for medium and darker skin tones!  The Quo BB Cream is very moisturizing and goes on more like face lotion because it has so many hydrators in it.

Because it’s so dewy and without shimmer, the Quo line also has a primer with shimmer in it, and a matte powder that can be used for setting the product.  Actually, from the whole line, the compact powder was my favourite product.  It’s super light (a little too much so because when you even dust it with your brush, you’ll get a LOT of product), and because of that, it does have the tendency to get caked on, but overall, if you can manage to use this powder sparingly, it will work well to set foundation and keep it fresh for many hours.

Overall, although I liked the look of this BB Cream and there are good colours available, it’s just too moisturizing for my skin type, which is oily.  If you have dry skin, you may like this cream, and if you want something with more coverage, then this is for you too.

    I do really like BB cream (light to medium). But you gotta spread it out as fast as you can (but still be gentle:)) as it makes your face matte.
    love it

    I have to disagree with this initial review. I find that this foundation is very sheer and provides a much lighter coverage compared to many other foundations and bb creams that I have tried. Also I do have oily skin and find this product very mattifying on my skin. There is a slight glow which im sure comes from the fact that I have very oily skin and the hydrators within the product. This is perhaps the first time I have come a cross a product which is both mattifying and moisturizing. I also have very large pores and have issues with foundations caking and magnifying them. This product seems to blur them and I am quite pleased with that.

    Overall I think this foundation is suitable for those who wish too look more natural and only care to slightly blur their imperfections with a very sheer layer of coverage, or perhaps those with close to perfect skin who only wish to even out their skin tone.

    I am finding that the BB cream doesn’t have a pleasant smell. It’s like I’m spreading mud on my face. I do like the coverage it gives, and how it balances out my skin tone (fair), but I wish it had a nice soft fragrance to it.
