[baviphat] ISLAND GIRLS BB Primer Fix

When I started with korean cosmetic, [baviphat] was one of the first brands I used and liked. I loved the cute packagings of their skin care lines and also received samples of BB creams and primers. A primer I liked, and got as a full size later, was the ISLAND GIRLS BB Primer Fix. I got that one at eBay, as most of my stuff. Unfortunately, I bought it from a chinese seller because it was way cheaper BUT it turned out that it was a fake. So, if you buy products at eBay be careful!!

Description: A must-have item for adhering effect of BB cream and bright skin. 
Contains Lotus Extracts and Aloe Extracts for easy application of makeup, while subtle pearl tint provides brightness to skin. Mineral-rich ingredients such as pearl and coral powder will offer a fresh sensation of makeup for extended hours. 
The BB Primer Fix comes in a cheap-looking brown tube with a sticker around it. I don't really like its design! The tube contains 45ml and has a flip-top lid.
The description is in Korean only but the product contains the following main ingredients:
Art Pearl, Shiny Satin Pearl: For bright and vivid skin expression.
Long Lasting Silicone Gel: Adhering effect of BB cream and covers uneven facial textures.
Mineral Effect: Pearl and Coral Powder maintain fresh make-up condition.
The consistency is lotion-like and has a very nice soft scent. The primer is ivory-white but changes to a pearly pink on the skin. It's easy to spread over my face, feels moisturizing and gives my face a glowing finish. I also noticed that it brightens my skin tone!
The whole product reminds me a little bit of the Nymph Aura Boosting Primer.
The only thing I don't like again is the oil-control. My skin gets oily after a short time but I will have this problem with almost each product.
How to use: Evenly apply suitable amount on your face before using BB cream.
You can also mix the primer with your BB cream!

Price: around 15,- €/ US$18.50
Bought at: eBay (BELLOGIRL)       

What I love:   

The glowing finish and moisturizing feeling.

What I don’t like: 
The packaging looks kinda cheap. It has no good oil-control.

Will I buy this again? I think I would! But probably will rather get one for oily skin.


  1. oh a nice looking product, hopefully this is available in my local store :D

    1. If you got baviphat in your city/ country than they might have it as well. =)

  2. Sorry to hear you've gotten a fake before. :( How did you tell?

    1. Because I got some samples from Korea before, so I knew that the primer got that white/pink color. The tube I got from China contained a beige-colored product and looked more like a BB cream.

  3. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you'd bought a fake on eBay. Glad you found a product you like enough to repurchase. Can you believe I still haven't tried any baviphat? XP Hopefully I will one day, hehe.
