PIXY BB Cream Bright Fix SPF30 | Review4:19 PM
Greetings and Assalamualaikum to all.
PIXY BB Cream Bright Fix SPF30| Review. Please raise your hand if you are BB cream fans. I am one of them. Kenapa Shad lebih suka BB Cream? First sebab texture nya lebih ringan. BB Cream is lighter on the skin than foundation but heavier than tinted moisturizer. Secondly, BB Cream provide coverage with added skincare benefits like SPF, anti-oxidant etc depending on the brands. It also makes a good base for make-up which cover imperfections like a concealer. Also suitable for daily use, untuk light make-up. There are lots of cream available now right. BB, CC, DD and even EE Cream now.
So today is gonna be a PIXY BB Cream Bright Fix review. Beware, it's gonna be a long review perhaps. Before we go further, let's have a little bit background reading about PIXY.

◼ The Packaging
Lovely pink. What can I say? It is absolutely lovely. Smile. The packaging is nice with Pink and White color combination. Twist cap and doff surface packaging. It appears to be youthful, sweet and lovely! What a combination ehhh..
◼ Texture and Scent
I love the texture. Creamy liquid, tak terlalu cair. Easy to blend. And love the lightweight texture too. Lightweight cream texture provides coverage without the masking look. Teksturnya ringan dan tak nampak kesan tebal after applying. It blend well and it smell nice too. Smell fresh and flowery but a bit overpowering I think. If you happened to use PIXY Gentle & Moist Cleansing Lotion before this, the smell is exactly 98% the same. For those who have a very sensitive skin, you might dislike this one because it has fragrance that might give break out for your skin. Maybe yes, maybe not.
◼ Performance: Matte Finished
I love the finishing effect after applying this PIXY BB Cream Bright Fix. Kinda look natural. Finishing powdery and more to matte finished. It is quite okay to my normal skin, but just a little bit dry when I try applying this BB Cream when I skip the moisturizer step. For those with dry skin, please apply moisturizer first for the smooth blending.
◼ Shade: Ochre
They have 3 shade to choose, BEIGE, CREAM and OCHRE. I received myself the OCHRE shade. A little bit bright for me I think. Beige is the darker (paling tua). Cream is in middle light (agak cerah) and Ochre is the lighter (paling cerah). Ochre is more suitable for yellow-undertone (warm) and Cream will be suitable for people with pink-undertone skin (cold). Thought that it appears to be a bit bright, but it blend well with the skin tone. It also have Natural Whitening Extract and Vitamin C Derivate to promote brighter skin which is good ain't.
◼ SPF30 & PA+++
Provides optimum protection against UVB and UVA rays. This is good enough for daily use. I can skip sunscreen step too when applying this PIXY BB Cream Bright Fix.
My thoughts, the coverage for this PIXY BB Cream Bright Fix is average, so that's why it appears to be natural-look. Kinda. As in as BB Cream- widely known the coverage is rather less than foundation to be differentiate with. For those who have a clear skin (without much acne and acne scars), this BB Cream might be good enough coverage for you.
Apart from that, it is quite ok for everyday use. A light touch up maybe. Very suitable for those who love natural makeup look. I love to apply powder after the BB step for higher coverage.
◼ Long Lasting
What I like about this is, if you happened to be splash with water, or your face is soak with water after a heavy rain, worry not, the BB Cream is still there! For the cont, need to clean them with cleanser + cleansing water to be fully free from cream (skincare routine as usual).
◼ Oil-Control & Smart-lock Powder
Oil-Control for this PIXY BB Cream is average. (My average rate: 3.5 out of 5) for my normal skin. Alerts, a bit oily at t-zone area after 6 hours. For those with oily skin, you might being Ok for the first 4 hours. Maybe. I love to touch up with powder for a better finishing and oil controlling.
I need to give an agree point for the Smart-lock Powder technology. Face looks bright and not dull up to 7-8 hours (as far as I have try), maybe because of the Natural Whitening Extract, I suppose.
As far as I try this BB Cream for a week, I might say that, there are slightly no changes happen to my face considering the acne and sort of.
+ Instantly brightens skin
+ Easy to blend
+ Dull-free result
+ Good staying power
+ Nice scent
+ Affordable Price
- Average oil-control.
- Contain Paraben, Silicon and Fragrance.
My rate: 3.5/5. Repurchase? Maybe Yes.
