Dr.Jart+ Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++ Review:
I came across Dr.Jart+ products two years ago. I saw so much hype about BB creams of this particular brand so I had to try it out. After long ingredient list research, I bought Dr.Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream, but then I saw this one: Dr.Jart+ Premium BB Beauty Balm. I purchased it for summertime, as it is darker, golden tone shade.
“A one-step balm that perfects the appearance of skin while protecting it from the sun and environmental factors.
Bio-Peptide Complex infused with white gold to provide anti-aging properties and promote natural collagen.
Features SPF 45 sun protection
Comes in one universal shade
A moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum, this all-in-one product also includes advanced brightening properties.
Skin is left looking smooth, perfect, and natural.“

Dr.Jart+ Premium BB Beauty Balm SPF 45 PA+++ Review:
There are actually two versions of this BB cream. One is aimed for USA market, and the other one is “original” Asian version.
The difference is in ingredients, for example, Asian version doesn’t contain alcohol and Zinc Oxide and it combines both chemical and physical sunscreens, whilst USA version contains only physical sunscreens. Here is the ingredients list of American version for comparison:
Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Phenyl Trimethicone, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Dipropylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Arbutin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Magnesium Sulfate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Calcium Stearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Polysorbate 80, Propylene Glycol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Talc, Tocopheryl Acetate, Adenosine, Alcohol, Lecithin, rh-Oligopeptide-1, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, PVP, Platinum Powder, Steareth-20, Chrysin, N-Hydroxysuccinimide, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide
The difference is also in shades available. Asian version has one universal dark, golden shade, and USA version has two shades available:
- Light to medium,
- Medium to deep.
My review is about Asian version.
Texture is buttery, thick, but it nicely glides on the skin and spreads evenly. Think rich, creamy, silky skin cover. It has light, floral fragrance but it’s barely noticeable. It comes in typical Dr.Jart+ packaging – a golden tube with the airless pump for maximum protection.
Coverage is light to medium. It won’t cover major imperfections, but will even skin tone perfectly. Upon application, it is shiny, a bit dark on face, but after few minutes, it perfectly blends into skin only to become completely invisible.
This BB cream provides SPF 45 or PA+++ sun protection and as I said above is combination of both chemical and physical sunscreen ingredients (Eethylhexy Methoxycinnamate,Titanium Dioxide).
Thanks to arbutin, adenosine and bio-peptide complex provides skin with anti-age properties, natural collagen production and overall better skin condition including skin elasticity and firmness. For luxury feeling of true “Premium” side of BB creams there is also platinum powder for antioxidant purpose.
I do feel it as benefit to my skin. It gives me that “my skin but better” look. It is rather durable on face as it sinks into skin so I have noticed its effect on my face even several hours after application.
Favourite thing of mine is that is mobile phone safe – it doesn’t leave cast on screen. Also it doesn’t settle into pores and fine lines on face. But…
This BB cream is definitely only for dryer skin types. I cannot recommend it to oily or combination skin types because it will make you shine like a disco ball. Without highlighter. This cream is so rich that oily skin will probably find overwhelming.
This BB cream is in my permanent stash. I combine it with my other Dr.Jart+ BB cream of lighter shade so I can use it all year round, not only on my summer skin face.
