Kiehl's Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream in Fair & Light

Today's review will be about another BB cream! Summer is just around the corner, so might as well invest in products with major SPF.

Kiehl's Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream with SPF 50 PA+++
A dual-action formula that perfects and corrects skin

Dual-action formula instantly conceals imperfections with lightweight, buildable coverage AND is clinically proven to correct skin tone irregularities.


This BB cream is formulated with a high level of Vitamin C, known for its powerful clarifying action.


Fair is the lightest shade, while Light is the middle shade. I don't have a sample of Natural, but it's the darkest shade. Yey since there's a BB cream that would fit morena skintone without giving a grayish cast!

Fair disappears on my skin. I've found my exact BB cream shade with this!

Fair (when worn)

  • The shade Fair is a perfect match for my skin.
  • It's free from parabens, fragrances, silicones, and mineral oil.
  • It has a light texture that's easily blendable.
  • Its broad spectrum SPF 50 PA +++ UV protection helps fight future sun damage.
  • It's just like  Kiehl's Ultra-Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA +++, only tinted. 
  • It has a light and natural coverage that's able to cover just the minor redness and imperfections.
  • It hides my pores.
  • Initially, it looks shiny but it settles to a nice dewy finish, but no shimmer.
  • It doesn't leave a grayish cast that's common in most Korean BB creams.
  • It comes in 3 shades: Fair, Light, and Natural. Natural is perfect for morena skin!

  • The coverage might be too sheer for others.
  • It has no oil control, so I always have to use powder with this.
  • As always, as with any Kiehl's product, it's expensive.

  • Tap the BB cream all over the face first before blending for better coverage.
  • Recommended for normal to dry skin because of its moisturizing properties.

Price: P1,990.00 for 30ml
Available in Kiehl's stores at Shangri-La Mall, Greenbelt, Rockwell, Alabang Town Center, SM Mall of Asia, and Trinoma.

I'll be using this one on my lazy, no-makeup days (and not during events) due to its sheer coverage. Have you tried Kiehl's Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream?



  1. I love the Kiehl's BB Cream. My shade is Light :)

    1. Saw your review! Glad you've found your exact shade too, Mariel! ;)

  2. I heard awesome reviews on the brand too bad my skin does not react well with BB creams.but maybe its a good thing ang mahal nmn nyan! hehe. thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    1. For its price, it better be good! I heard a lot of rave reviews too on Kiehl's, but I haven't explored their products much (except for the samples I receive) kasi ang mahal nga!

      BB cream is actually not for everyone. Some BBs are no different from liquid foundations, so at the end of the day its still makeup more than skincare. :)

  3. Wow it really is a perfect shade match! I have yet to find any face base that perfectly matches me. Kiehls is a little too steep for me though. :(

    1. Awww hope you find yours soon, Pat! Kiehl's is too steep for me too! But I enjoy trying out their samples. :)

  4. It seem to blend well with the skin. I just kinda find it pricey.

    1. It is pricey, but if your skin goes well with the formula, it's probably worth it as long as you use the entire tube up. :)

  5. Ooo helen this is a great review! I love how in the swatches you semi-rubbed the product into your skin to see how it blends! GENIUS!! <3

    I just realized someone created a fake Facebook account pretending to be me... I hope this doesn't happen to you! I've just created an official Facebook page, hope to see you there!

      Sorry for the too late reply, but I'm glad the fake account has been taken down. You're super awesome that's why people want to be like you. ;)
