Product Price: INR 140/- for 15 ml of product

My take on the Product:

Inveda BB Cream comes in a plastic squeeze tube packed in a cardboard carton. The packaging is cute and handy and can be carried around in your purse. The formula is quite runny and takes a little while to blend into the skin. It looks a bit ashy on my skin during the blending process but settles in about 15 minutes time. It has a pleasant powdery fragrance. This product comes only in a single shade. It will leave a whitish cast on duskier complexions. It gives very little coverage and even if you have minor skin imperfections, you will need a concealer. The product did not even out my skin. I did require a dusting of pressed to set the product.

Its USP is that its paraben free. It has SPF 20 and is meant for all skin types. Its not oily, though my T-zone looked shiny in a couple of hrs. The product did not oxidise for about 4 hrs. 

However, the formula tends to look patchy and you need to exfoliate your skin for a smooth application. This product is meant for younger skin with few imperfections. Not quite for me ;) . 

Pros:
  1. Paraben Free
  2. Has SPF
  3. Handy packaging
  4. Pleasant powdery fragrance
  5. Stays for about 4 hrs before fading and oxidising.
Cons:
  1. Comes in a single shade
  2. Leaves a whitish cast on duskier complexion
  3. Patchy finish.
  4. Very little coverage.
  5. Need to exfoliate before application to get an even finish.

Overall Verdict: 2.5/5. There are better products in the market at this price point though they may not be paraben free.
