Dr. Jart BB Cream Review: Detox Healing & Water Fuse

As Promised, here is a thorough review of Dr. Jart BB Creams. I have broken the reviews down into 2 posts. Based on my last post on Dr. Jart BB Cream variants, I have decided to combine the review for the BB Cream Black Label Detox Healing and the BB Cream Most moist Water Fuse together since I feel that from the 4 variants of the Dr. Jart line, these are the ones that would be the simpler ones or in foundation lingo these two would be the ones with "light - medium coverage".

Prior to Dr. Jart, I have never had any experience with any other BB creams out in the market. I have swatched a few and have received samples. But never had I purchased my own tube of BB cream. Why? Because there was just too many out there to choose from. And in the end, the lack of information for the different BB cream brands led me to buy NONE. So let this be my way of sharing you guys information on Dr. Jart BB creams. :)

Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Healing - 50mL – P1,940.00/ 15mL – P845.00

Amongst the 4 variants of Dr. Jart, this is the carrying variant of the Philippines. Said to match and vanish with the Filipina skin tone, this is claimed that even men can use this product. This is also the current best selling BB cream variant in Korea! Here is a swatch of the Black Label Detox Healing.

Comes in a handy spill proof tube container sure to not waste any product.

Here is a "mongo" size amount of product on the back of my hand, basing from the swatch it initially looks veryyyy light, suiting an nc-25 ish type of skin tone. Fyi I am an NC-40-42 :)

Here is the black label initially rubbed in, it still looks very light on my hand, the consistency is very creamy and it goes smoothly on your skin.

Here it is fully blended into my skin under natural lighting. Under this lighting, it actually looks like its not there anymore.

Here it is with flash, from this image, you can see that there is a slight white cast caused by the BB cream, probably from the Titanium Dioxide content.

Overall, I feel that this product does sink into to your skin and "vanishes" but It just doesn't hold through for all kinds of lighting. I love the consistency of the product because it is not sticky and it really does keep my skin moisturized. I just don't suggest using this though as a base for make up because of the white cast that may appear in Photographs.

I do suggest this though on days when you're not going to take any pictures but can't leave the house without make up. :) On these days you can skip your regular foundation and go with this BB cream and set it with your regular powder, add blush and you're good to go. :)

Dr. Jart Most Moist Water Fuse - 50mL – P1,975.00

From this and the Dr. Jart Black Label, I like this better. From the name of the variant itself, it's kind of intimidating. It actually makes you think that this product will be really heavy with the moisture and may give you the most shine of all. But really it is the opposite. It is the lightest out of all the variants. And it really does give you the "Moisture without the glossiness!" that it says it does. Here is the swatch below.

Comes in the same spill proof tube as the Detox Healing variant.

The same "mongo" size amount on the back of my hand, it also initially looks like an nc-25 ish kind of shade.

Initially rubbed in, here's where you see and feel the difference. This variant is not as thick as the Detox healing variant, and this one really is fused with water. From the initially rubbed in image above, if you click the image and look closely you can see the small particles of water from the product. :) This made the product easier to blend and gave it a lighter feel. :)

Fully blended at the back of my hand under natural lighting.

Under artificial lighting from a flash camera. As you can see there is still a slight white cast caused by the product. A little but lighter than the detox healing one.

I definitely like the Water Fuse Variant over the Detox Healing, I like it better since my skin is oily, and I actually like products that is more water base for my skin since it feels lighter. As a matter of fact, I tried using the Water Fuse variant at night before going to bed after my regular 3-step, so the water fuse became my 4th step. And when I woke up, my face was crazy smooth.

Luckily, I havent really experienced any breakouts, but I haven't been using this on a daily basis too, I actually switch variants depending on my mood and where I'm going. :)

So what can i say about my BB cream experience, well It really is a good addition to my cosmetic and skin care knowledge. It's a good alternative since it is great alone. I would definitely use these when I feel like skipping heavy foundation. :)

I still have 2 more variants left to review, can't wait to share those with you guys soon! :)

Toodles! :)


  1. I haven't been on a BB CREAM "shopping" for quite some time, your post made me think about bb cream again! hehehe

    suppose you added a little information? I ain't saying your content isn't solid,
    but what if you added a post title to possibly get
    people's attention? I mean "Dr. Jart BB Cream Review: Detox Healing & Water Fuse" is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how
    they create post headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related
    picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little livelier.
