I was very skeptical about using a foundation in a cushion after I had my first negative experience with Physicians Formula cushion when it just appeared on the market. Physicians Formula Mineral Wear talc free cushion did not provide any coverage, instead it sat in each and every pore looking very fake. I don't want to wear a fake mask on my face, so Physicians Formula went to the garbage.
Years passed and I decided to give a try to 3W Clinic collagen BB cream foundation in a cushion. 3W Clinic is a popular South Korean brand which became famous after releasing Natural Makeup Powder, that's used by professional backstage makeup artists and kpop stars. 3W Clinic use a combination of traditional eastern medicine principles and modern scientific knowledge, utilizing snail mucus, placenta and collagen in their formulas. They are official supplier of Miss Korea contest.
To start, I like the classic packaging. There is something magical about picking up a red with gold pack in the morning. I have been using this BB cream for 6 days every day. It has pleasant and settle smell, it goes on very smooth, has semi-sheer coverage (my skin is in a good condition thanks to snail mucus serum/cream), it creates radiant complexion without being visible on the skin, it has SPF +50, it has placenta extract.
I thought nothing can beat La-Roche Posay tinted sun lotion (I reviewed it in June), but this one is a runner up. La-Roche Posay is a great tinted fluid SPF +50, but it has one "but" -plastic smell.
3W Clinic did a good job with collagen infused BB cream, SPF +50.
