BB Cream is still one of the best beauty products ever invented in the cosmetics industry. New BB Creams that pop up to this day is still very much welcome! The first Myra product that I ever used was their moisturizer, Myra E. I fell in love with that moisturizer, and I recommended it to everyone I knew. It made my skin so soft and supple, and was light to use under foundation.

Now they launch a new product: VitaGlow BB Cream. I say, YES! Finally!

Myra VitaGlow BB Cream, PhP 99.00

If you are already a BB Cream user (and groupie), then you would know all its benefits for the skin. For those of you who haven't gotten into the BB Cream craze, then you should read on.

BB Creams are made for the modern gal who live high on the fast lane. It's just a fancy shmancy term for gals on-the-go. These creams have so much benefits so you it's all you need in the morning to look put together.
It comes in a typical BB Cream tube, which is easily identifiable. Here's a list  of what benefits you can get from Myra's new BB Cream:

  • It's moisturizing! -Their cream is lightweight, just like tinted moisturizer! Some BB Creams have a thicker consistency making them hard to apply.
  • Contains Vitamin E -Vitamin E has been proven to nourish the skin, and air in collagen production. With each use of Myra BB Cream, your skin will look healthy and show a younger-looking glow.
  • Doubles as foundation -It has a lightweight feel but it's very light on the face. Full coverage without the weight of the foundation you will usually feel when using creamy foundations.
  • Contains skin-enhancing minerals -Disguise tired looking skin with this BB Cream with subtle light-reflecting shimmers that will give you a lit-from-within glow.
  • Can be used as a concealer -Pat an extra layer on the area you want concealed.
  • It has sun protection -This BB Cream contains SPF 15 which provides protection from wrinkle-causing UV Rays that lets your skin age prematurely.
  • It's hypoallergenic -Tested on sensitive skin. Safe to be used with women with sensitive skin.
  • Affordable! -Priced at only PhP 99.00 per tube, this product is such a beauty steal!

It comes in two shades: Ivory and Beige. Ivory has a yellow undertone while beige has a more orange undertone. Both these shades cater to every Filipina skin. It has a very airy texture, but creamy to the touch. Basically it has the consistency of a moisturizer but in foundation form.
With my fair skin, I opted for the ivory shade. Since this BB Cream has adapting capabilities, this shade may be ok for fair to medium-fair skinned women.
I used my SOFFIA foundation brush to apply BB Cream. I used to use my fingers but since I have been wearing my nails long, I have to opt for brushes so I wouldn't get product under my fingernails or accidentally scratch my face.
Compared to other BB Creams, this one is very light. It's been a while since I used a BB Cream that is as light as a moisturizer but has the coverage of a liquid foundation. It sits nicely under the eyes too where I have most fine lines. It doesn't cake around the lines which makes its flexibility good!

Here is a photo of me wearing the BB Cream and set with a light dusting of translucent powder. I love the skin-like finish! It looks very natural.
The best part is, it's extremely available at PhP 99! If you instantly need to put on makeup, you can always opt for this BB Cream to give you a nice, even, flawless coverage. It's easily available, you can find it in leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
