Review: Hada Labo Air BB Cream

Hello~! I'm back with a new review~ This time it's yet another Hada Labo product. I'm in love with this brand I tell you!

Finding the right foundation or bb cream has always been a problem for me. I had the Revlon's PhotoReady that turned out very orange-y and then another Dr. Young's BB Cream that gives off grey-ish tone that makes me look like the walking dead. I hate shopping for foundation! But still, partly having the curiosity of a beauty blogger, partly desperation to get a flawless look, I decided to give Hada Labo Air BB Cream a try.

And I don't know if it's luck or what, just when I had decided to purchase one, I received one for free!! Thank you, kamisama!

So I've been using it for a weeks now, and here's what I can conclude about this BB Cream: BEST base makeup I ever had!ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ

Tell you why soon~

Hada Labo Air BB Cream
This BB Cream is available at RM55.90 for a 40g tube and available in two shades: Ivory Beige and Natural Beige. I received the one in Ivory Beige, which is somewhat a tone darker than the other.

Here's the swatch ↓

matched so well with my skin tone!

This is what it looks like compare to my Revlon's and Dr Young's.

Dr Young's one totally out. Sure, I picked up the wrong shade last time(there's 2 and I got the lighter one). Still, I wouldn't  back to trying Dr Young's 'cuz I find the BB creams have really grey tone! The Revlon's one appears very similar to the Hada Labo's but I find it has weird orange-y tone...

What I love about the Hada Labo one is how it blends so well with my skin tone after a little bit more dabbing!

But that's not all. This Hada Labo Air BB Cream also prides itself for working on 10-in-1 function including SPF50+PA++~! YAYY to that!

Here are the 10 functions:

HadaLabo Air BB Cream with 10-in-1 functions!

From providing a flawless coverage to sun protection to hydrating and even anti-aging properties, this BB cream has it all! Saves you a lot of time from applying all those products separately.

As for the texture, it is really light on the skin and it has super lasting coverage that stays for hours thanks to the Silicone Elastomer Blend formulated into this BB Cream. Also with low irritation and free of fragrance, mineral oil and alcohol.

Alrighty, here's the before(

HadaLabo Air BB Cream Review before&after
So, I find it works really well in covering pores giving an amazing, almost smooth overall. I say almost because it only conceals the small ones better. You can see from the photo above, some of the larger pores aren't well concealed...

For scars, the coverage is somewhat medium too. It does cover up the redness of scars but I have to dab in another layer or two (I'm somewhat considering laser treatment for smoother skin on a long run hahaha)

My conclusion?

I love this Hada Labo Air BB Cream a lot because it does gives a much radiant complexion~! With the amazing 9 other functions to boot, this one's another keeper!


  1. Thanks for the review! I really want to try this but unfortunately it seems like a matte finish and I like dewy. It looks good on you, though. It seemed to really cover up and give you an even skintone~!!^^

  2. Thanks for reading my review ヽ(⌒▽⌒〃) Yea, this sure is one amazing BB Cream.

    I hope you find your perfect BB cream~! And when you do, do share it with me. Would love to experiment on dewy finish sorta BB cream/foundation☆-(≥vO)

  3. Love the review ^^ im looking for a "perfect" bb cream and I just found out abt hada labo air bb about the oil control?

  4. Sankiu~! (⌒▽⌒)

    The bb cream doesn't do much for oil control but my face is definitely less 'shiny' at the end of the day. Still need to blot though. Hope this helps (≥vO)

  5. Hi! I have been hunting for a good bb cream and this sounds wonderful! May I ask where did you get this?

  6. Hello @Rai Hanafy(*⌒∇⌒*)

    I got mine from local SaSa outlet in Malaysia. It's available in Guardian and Watsons too.
    Otherwise, I think they're available overseas from

    Hope this helps (≥vO)v

  7. Thankyou for the quick reply! (^0^)/
    I did find one at a Guardian and will buy it soon. Since you first started using it, has it lived up to the expectations? I've heard some bb creams oxidize a lot once you put it on. Sorry I can't word it better ^~^;

  8. It's amazing because it helps cover up the imperfection a bit. by oxidize you mean the staying power? well that part it's alright if you brush some powder after applying the bb cream.

    tell me if i answered your question right :/

  9. Oh, that's great!
    and by oxidize I meant it turns darker. sone people say the maybelline bb mousse does that so I have to be careful.
    Sorry for the late reply, I'm just finishing up my PMR trials ^^;

  10. I see.. Well I don't have any issue with this bb cream so far.

    and wow, just finish your PMR trials? Oh how I miss those old school days. How did it went? (・∀・)

  11. Sorry my reply is late @-@ I got 7A's 1B for trial. Hope for 8A's for the real deal!
    Well I might just get this bb cream after all (^.^)/

  12. Sorry for the late reply too! Thought I posted it but turn out it didnt went through.. Gomen ne! (>/<)

    7A 1B's for mock exam's amazing! Keep it up for the real exam next week! GANBATTE!!
