Review : Baviphat Magic Girls Plus BB Cream #1

Hello loves!

Since it's the summer season here in the Philippines, my face is extra oily and I sweat more than usual. Because of these, my makeup tends to melt, especially if I forget to blot off excess sebum.

That's why I try to use makeup that are made for oily skin like me. So today, I'll share with you one product that I bought some months ago that does that.

Baviphat Magic Girls Plus BB Cream #1
I forgot how much this is when I bought it but I guess it's around Php 800.00-1k in stores? But that's just a rough estimate. I really can't remember. :P

Can't read the details though. But still posting the labels just in case you can read it. :P
This BB has two variants, #1 is for oily skin while the other, #2, is for dry skin.

Loving the packaging art! The illustration gives the vintage feel to the product. 

It claims that it has SPF30 and PA++. The SPF is quite good. These properties are great for the summer!

Here's a swatch on my arm.

It smells nice but it's barely noticeable. It's like sweet and herby and baby powder fused together.

Consistency is a little thick but just a little. It's very easy to spread and blend and it also feels light on skin.

It gives a slight dewy/ semi-matte finish and gives a light but buildable coverage.

What I love about this BB Cream is that it's shade is warm enough to match my skin perfectly unlike most BB Creams which are lighter or pinker or sometimes even greyer.

Performance is great! It can last the whole day if you blot off the excess sebum which I only do twice for the whole day at work (around 10 hours of wearing makeup). It helps if you set it with powder to make it last longer and also to make it matte which I prefer when I do my makeup. Been using this everyday when I go to work (along with a lot of concealer because this doesn't help much in covering my scars and pimples) and I do not experience any breakouts or other irritations.

What I LIKE:

- Matches my yellow-toned skin!
- Controls oil
- Lasts long
- SPF 30 and PA++
- Locally available (there's a stall in Cinderella, Glorietta)
- Consistency
- Easy to spread and blend
- Light on skin
- Packaging
- No breakouts or irritations

What I am NEUTRAL about:

- Price
- Semi-matte finish


- Coverage is minimal

Would I purchase again? I probably will. It really makes my face look decent for a long period of time during this awfully hot weather. I recommend this to those who have oily skin who loves using BB Creams that doesn't mind light coverage.

So what do you think of Baviphat Magic Girls Plus BB Cream #1? Have you tried this BB Cream yet? What about other products from Baviphat?



  1. I think I have a sample of this. Hayy but I don't like minimum coverage bb creams. 'Cause they normally feel heavy enough as it is, so if I'm facing that discomfort I might as well get the coverage I deserve! (deserve talaga?)

    1. True. Kaya lang I realized when I use BB Creams during this heat, they melt faster and even cakes. Pag foundations naman, they feel heavy and sometimes lack SPF. I guess I'm sticking with this one while the heat is still unbearable. :P

  2. Omg, this looks sooo damn good and the packaging! I love it! It seems wonderful overall and I would love the semi-matte finish! thanks for sharing!

    1. You're very welcome! Glad you like it as well. :D

    1. In the Philippines, there's a stall in Cinderella, Glorietta. But I think a lot of online stores carry this. I'm just not sure which ones. :)

  4. The packaging itself is enough to make me want to buy. Haha! But I'm not a big fan of BB Cream they don't usually give the kind of coverage I want :(


    1. I know what you mean. I used to think the same way but I guess the SPF and the extra moisturizing benefits made me reconsider. :P

  5. This is one of my most favorite BB creams! :) I have dry skin, but I got #1 anyway and it's still a good match! You're definitely right about how long this lasts, even longer with a setting spray and primer too!

    1. Yay! Glad that you also like this BB! <3

  6. Where did you bought this? Thanks for posting this! :)

    1. Bought it from a stall in PBCOM Building Cafeteria in Makati (Ayala Ave). But I think this is also available in stores at Cinderella, Glorietta. :)
