The Diorsnow UV Shield BB Creme White Reveal SPF 50 + PA+++  is now available in the United States from various Dior counters and online retailers.  I got mine about six months ago from the Duty Free in Korea.  I normally use BB Creams on a daily basis in the summer for its oil control and higher sun protection factor.  With that said, I decided to give this a try again this week prior to this post to see if it will wear differently with the colder weather, and to share my experience with the product now that its readily available in the States.

As you can see in the photos above, the product has a warmer tinge, almost a "peach" to it, and even a little darker than most BB Creams in the market.  My skin tone at the moment is around NC30-35, I do tan in the summer, and even with its warmer tinge, I don't think that the product will suit skin tones darker than NC40.  I find that the product does not leave a "grey cast", but it does lean beige, I have a lot of yellow in my skin and I can see a slight demarcation if I don't apply the product all the way down to my neck.

The product itself is not as thick or creamy as most BB creams.  It is slightly runny, but for me, that makes the product a dream to apply.  It has a light floral scent, and does require a few minutes to "darken" or warm up, and blend with the skin.  The coverage is light to medium, and the finish is dewy, but offers more coverage in comparison to Lancome UV Expert GN-Shield, another great BB Cream.  With adequately moisturized skin, the finish is quite lovely and natural, not as "cakey" than most BB Creams. 

I think this will suit combination to normal skin types.  If you have oily skin, you may have to layer a mattifying powder on top.  If your skin is very dry, make sure to moisturize well, as it will accentuate dry patches.  Overall, I find that this BB Cream is a good alternative to tinted moisturizers, or foundations if you prefer a lighter coverage.  As for its benefits,
 I don't normally rely on makeup or base products to give me the results I need.  I have decided that it is better to leave that up to skincare.  It is quite steep for $50.00 in comparison to other BB Creams, considering you're only getting 1.2 fl. oz. of product, but in my experience, the Diorsnow BB Creme has a superior edge to most BB Creams out there.
