Olay is one of the great drugstore brands that has been around since my Nana`s era. A trusted brand that is changing with the times. I was pleasantly surprised that Olay has the new pore minimizer/ CC Cream.
I admit I am very lazy when it comes to skincare. Yes, sorry to say, this is one reason I make it a point to select products that I can actually maximize. The less time I spend on my face the more time I get to spend doing other things like spend time with my kids or writing .
I was happy a lot of drugstore beauty brands have joined the bandwagon started by Korean brands. With BB Creams (Beauty Balms) and CC Creams from different known brands. I suppose it is but natural since lot of women have started looking for Hallyu brands because of the fantastic benefits these products have on skin.
I have tried my share of BB Cream and I found that BB creams and I are not compatible. In fact, I have had oiliness and break out problems while using BB Creams. It was a great surprise to me that CC Creams are more to my taste. See my CC Cream review here.
I attended the Too Cool For School with Marj Siaand I was psyched to get some interesting samples from one of my favorite Korean Cosmetics brand. The Jean George Llong Sunblock was the full size skincare product in the loot.
When I first saw it I was wondering what it was for. Is this product for guys coz it show the great abs. Which I have nothing against that mind you but it does create confusion. I have written Jean Geoabout TCFS in my blog and almost all their product packages are in Korean. I was informed that they would be redoing the packages in English soon. I can’t wait! I am a fan of this brand but I am a bit confused what products is what?

Too Cool for School Jean George Llong Sun Block is a sunblock that can be used as a CC Cream (Color Corrector)/ makeup primer SPF 50 PA++, you can use this on both your face and body.

I know of a girl who went back to one of the Korean Cosmetics Shop to complain that her tube of BB Cream is busted. She kept squeezing the products until it spilled. It seems she didn’t know that these products are sealed. Always check!
Initially, I felt this product was too white for me. I have medium morena skin and most of the Korean Brands formulas are leaning on the dewy and light toned which is not suitable on my skin and makes me look ghostly. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it blends right in to compliment my skin! Pro:
*** Did not irritated my skin nor gave me rashes
*** Evens my skintone and blends well
*** light coverage
*** has an SPF 50
*** non greasy
*** feels light on my skin
*** turns matte when it sets Con:
No English translation/ instructions on the package. But this is not the product’s fault though.
Used TCFS: Jean George Llong Sunblock as primer with Canmake Mashmallow Finish Powder Pact
I can’t believe that this is just labled as sunblock! It does so much! This is perfect for girls who just want to have even looking skin without the fuss.
Will I repurchase? Most definately!
