This is a basic BB Cream from the Enprani Group. It was their first BB Cream , but it’s popularity faded when Enprani came out with their best-selling BB Cream – “ All That B.B “ . To know how old and basic this BB Cream is, you will need to know that it doesn’t even contain any SPF. Almost all the new generation of BB Creams contains SPF nowadays.
The Enprani Vital BB Cream comes in a very nice glossy black box. The BB Cream is stored in a little bulky pump. It is really cute in a way, but maybe inconvenient for you ladies to bring it out with you since it’s really bulky! The pump is also rather hard to control so sometimes we pump too much BB Cream out!
I would not have much to comment here because i do not have the ingredient list here with me! However from the Enprani Website, i managed to catch one of the main ingredient :
1) Bradykinin (found in aloe gel)
According to Wiki, Bradykinn is a peptide that causes blood vessels to dilate (enlarge), and therefore causes blood pressure to lower .Bradykinin is an inflammatory nonapeptide (9- amino acid peptide chain) originating in the plasma So why is it used in cosmetics? It has now been determined that one of the essential characteristics of sensitive skin (reactions of skin irritation and intolerance) are associated, in particular, with the release of these neuropeptides, induced by bradykinin.
Thus, it has now been determined that the use of a bradykinin antagonist permits the preventive and/or curative therapeutic treatment of sensitive skinTo treat sensitive skin, bradykinin antagonists are hereby employed. Indeed, it has now surprisingly been found that the formulation of bradykinin antagonists into a cosmetic, pharmaceutical or dermatological composition avoids the irritationand/or dysaesthesic sensations in and/or pruritus of the skin and/or of the mucous membranes.
Briefly, the present invention features the formulation of at least one bradykinin antagonist into topically applicable compositions comprising a cosmetically, pharmaceutically or dermatologically acceptable medium, for treating sensitive skin.
Texture and Color
The Enprani Vital has a nice rather light texture to it. In a way it is also rather creamy, and compared to the Enprani Rayshot it is creamier and thicker in texture. It is also very easy to spread on the skin and has a greasy texture to it!
As seen below, Enprani Vital has a darker color compared to the rest, but don’t worry, once applied to the skin, it blends with the skin color.
Oil Control is rather poor for the Enprani Vital BB Cream. However, it would be suitable for those with combination – combination dry skin.

And on my right cheek which is much better !
When being compared to other BB Creams :
As said in the introduction, this is a very basic BB cream. It does it job like all BB Creams, and is more suitable for those with drier skin. It does have a good staying power though. It doesn’t have sunscreen so you have to apply another layer of sunscreen before applying the BB cream. Like all Korean cosmetics , it has fragrance in it, and thank god, it isn’t heavily scented !
Repurchase? Probably not… there are so much other options. However if you are looking for a cheap BB Cream as a base, or just as a light coverage for night use ( as u don’t need sunscreen at night – when you need to go to the mamak with friends etc ) this BB cream could be an option.
