I guess I could say that I am lucky with the skin that I am endowed with. While it is far from stellar, at least I don’t suffer from any major skin issue. Besides occasional breakout which I reckon are normal, redness/oiliness (when triggered) and somewhat dull skin, one of the things I am very conscious about lately is the veins that are showing on my face. I remember a time where my classmate asked if I hurt my face or something. I was so weirded out by his question I actually thought he was about to throw a joke. Turns out, a part of my face looks a bit green like it is bruised or something that’s why he asked. I was like “Oh no, my veins are just more obvious than normal.” I forgot about it until recently, my best friend gifted me A’pieu Base Maker. She said that I should try and use it to cover my facial varicose veins, as she put it.

A’pieu Base Maker SPF30 PA++ Green(104) Review:
A’pieu Base Maker is a base product and it is supposed to prep your skin for the succeeding make-up routine. It comes in a small plastic tube which makes it so handy you can easily bring it with you!
It is milky and spreads easily on the skin. Initially, I was scared to try it because I feel that it is too white for me. Fret not because this product blends well and it adjusts after some time.
No white cast or anything as long as you blend well. I suggest that you start with a small amount and just add if you find necessary because it could take a little if you put on too much.
A’pieu Base Maker should make your skin ready by making it more smooth and clear. I personally treat this product as correcting cream or a concealer but instead of hiding my blemishes, it covers my notorious veins.
I have tried using it on my entire face but since I could get really oily sometimes, I feel that my face got a bit sticky later in the day. I really love how it hides my veins so I thought of just applying it THINLY and ONLY on the problematic areas of my face. And it worked well with me that way!
Overall, this product is a decent base maker. I honestly wouldn’t complain because you can consider A’pieu as an affordable brand. I like it because its spreadable consistency makes it easy to work with and buildable.
I have used correcting cream before but I find them really cakey! The only problem I encountered with this is the fact that it could get oily but I have resolved my issue and just use it on specific area instead of my whole face!
I recommend this for people who have screaming veins in their faces (especially green ones). I reckon this product would work best for people with dry skin although you can adjust if you have somewhat oily skin. If you have seriously oily skin, you might wanna stay away from this product. Its finish is somewhat dewy and not velvety or matte.
