BB Creams: Quick Comparison

I have gotten another 5 BB Creams since my last post couple of weeks ago so here I am presenting you swatches and reviews (but will link you to other posts I already reviewed some BB creams in).

1: Oriks Oriental Herb BB Cream

I already reviewed this here.
Very pale sheer BB Cream but oxidizes a bit after short time. Has a pleasant light herbal smell and feels smooth and lightweight upon application.
50ml, came as part of a kit which cost me 39800 Won for 5 items.
Comes in a standard squeeze-tube.

2: Mamonde Natural Cover Lotion:

I already reviewed this here.
It's not called BB Cream but it's a 4-in-1 according to the box and contains SC Glucan, Ivy Extracts, Marshmallow Extracts and Fleur Hydra Complex. Also the texture/color is typical for BB Creams.
Has a floral scent and comes in a light pink-toned color (I purchased color 01, there is also a darker 02 available).
Offers sheer-medium coverage.
50ml (in simple squeeze-tube) cost me 16000 Won (about US$15)

3: VOV Castledew Whitening BB Repair Balm SPF15:

This is a pretty good BB Cream with light-medium coverage. Comes in 2 colors of which I chose the lighter one #01. Has a very pleasant fragrance, fruity and floral at the same time. The tube, color and consistency of the BB Cream reminds me very much of its sister brand Jadilla J Whitening BB Cream which is just a tad darker in color #01.
This gives me very smooth skin and lasts very well.
The BB Cream is rather thick and has a very light waxy feel I personally like in this formula.
Contains (among other ingreds) Jojoba Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Chamomile Extract and Arbutin.
50ml (in squeeze-tube) cost me 11200 Won (about US$10). The cream came with a free full-sized 100ml tube of Frigga Hand Cream and a pack of VOV Good-Bye Eye Pender cotton pads (those are really awesome!). This makes the BB Cream a really good deal.

4: VOV Anti Trouble Blemish Balm SPF17:

I only added this to show you the swatch of it as it's too dark for me (It looks fine on the pic but my hand is about 2 shades darker than my face). This has a herbal scent and a smooth texture.
I didn't actually purchase this, I got 4 full-sized 50ml tubes in color #23 as gifts.
Comes in a basic medicinal-looking squeeze tube

5: Jadilla J The Original BB SPF30 PA++:

I haven't seen the full-size of this on Gmarket. I received a deluxe GWP size as part of a gift-set.
The Original BB has a quite strong herbal scent but I really like it. The texture is typical for BB Creams, a thicker cream with sheer-medium coverage. The color works very well with my natural skin-tone and my skin feels super soft and smooth.

All in all another bunch that contains some pretty nice BB Creams.
And you can be sure you'll find a Quick Comparison V soon =) Addictions, addictions!
