Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel & Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream

I was recently sent samples of Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel* (10g) & Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream* (8g) to review.

Janiro Ltd are the UK distributors of the Ginvera range which is a staple brand in Singapore.

Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel 10g* (10g sample - pay p&p £2, 60g £19.95)
A light gel which you apply to dry skin to remove blackheads/whiteheads. I've been using it on my t-zone a couple of times a week. The gel removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the skin eliminating blackheads and leaving the skin radiant and renewed.  To use: apply a small amount onto dry skin focussing on the t-zone.  Keep massaging until you see small flakes appearing - this is dead skin cells and dirt!  Rinse with water.  I've found my skin is less congested (I suffer from blackheads/whiteheads on my chin) and it also helps control t-zone shine. One I'll definitely pick up when I finish my sample.

Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream 8g* (8g sample - pay p&p £2, 25ml £18, 40ml £26)  "Singapore, one of the first nations to adopt the BB phenomenon this is said to be the original, authentic Asian BB cream".  This product won an award at the Pure Beauty Awards - 2012 Silver Award Best Skincare Launch.

Suitable for all skin types and tones, the cream blends in well and is enriched with Green Tea, Ginseng, Chinese Angelica and Hyaluronic Acid.  It feels light and moisturising on the skin and gives an even coverage.  Apply with fingertips for a natural look. I love this! Will definitely be purchasing the larger size.  

Have you used either of these products?  What are your thoughts?

    I got the chance to try this too. I didn't care for the gel but the BB cream was good. I wish the Western BBs were more like Ginvera.


    1. Shame you didn't get on with the gel. I'm now a huge fan of the BB cream x

  3. I'm a huge fan of both products xx

  4. The BB cream works wonders for men's skin too. I know at least 6 guys using it everyday! :-)

  5. I havent tried either of these, really need to find a BB cream that is pale enough for me! xox

  6. even though this is meant to suit all skin tones it would probably be too dark for you x
