[REVIEW] Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion

Hello Readers!
Today's review is on makeup! I will be sharing my thoughts on the foundation I have been using for over a year now. And it is still one of my favourites! (I figured you would know this is my #1 brand by now, :P)
Laneige BB Cushion 1 
    Laneige BB Cushion 2
Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion!
My skin tone is fair with yellow undertones - as such the colour code for the BB cushion was No. 21 Natural Beige.
For those who are not sure whether you are a yellow undertone or a pink undertone, take a look at your veins under fluorescent lighting. If your veins are more green - you have a yellow undertone. If your veins are more blue - you have a pink undertone.
Product Benefits (taken from the Laneige website):
- A new-concept cushion-type BB with five active ingredients for Whitening + Sunscreen + Sweat-proof + Soothing + Makeup contained in the cushion to maximise the refreshing and soothing sensation. Every time you touch it, the air pump in the cushion contains air bubbles for thin and skin-friendly makeup.
- Also, it is provided in two separate containers to preserve the active ingredients and their functionality.
- The formulas can be used fresh and safely from start to finish.
Instructions for use (taken from the Laneige website):
Laneige BB Cushion 4
1. Apply onto puff and smooth along the texture of skin. Then, pat to increase adherence. Apply another layer to improve coverage.
2. If there is no more content after you press the cushion with your finger, it means that the product is finished. Replace with a refill.
[How to Take Care of Puff]
Keep the puff clean all the time and gently massage it in lukewarm water with neutral detergent or puff cleanser  to wash it (I highly recommend Daiso Sponge & Puff cleanser!).
Rinse thoroughly until the detergent is washed away, release all moisture, and dry completely in a shadowy place. This way, you can use it for an extended period of time.
[Safety Suggestions]
Always recap after use. If it is not stored covered, helpful moisturizers and other ingredients can evaporate to shrink the contents.
My thoughts: One of the perks of this product is that it comes with an extra refill! :D So although the price may seem a little steep, but do bear in mind you're paying for two times the product! Make sure you close the compact tightly and store it in a cool place to prevent unnecessary evaporation of the product.
Laneige BB Cushion 5
The foundation adheres nicely to my skin and gives off a cooling effect for about half an hour after application. Coverage is pretty good - it's more towards sheer-mild coverage - kind of like spraying BB mist over your face. One thing I wasn't so keen on was how it gave me a dewy look, reason being, in hot humid Singapore, it'd look more like my face is sweating rather than giving off that dewy look. >< But, this problem is easily solved by applying some dusting powder (I'd recommend Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder) very lightly over the nose area. :) No need to dust the entire face.
This product, if used everyday, should last about 2 - 3 months.
Would I buy it again: Yes! I am currently on my 2nd box of BB cushion (3rd cushion) and have 2 more stored away!
Price (15g, 2 each): S$59 @ local Singapore counters, approximately S$35 in South Korea stores
(you can also check out for offers!)
Verdict: 10/10
