It is a cosmetic/makeup product from Korea manufactured Woosin Cosmetics Co., Ltd. It was first introduced in the Philippines by freelance makeup artist and blogger Aila Apolo of Makeup and my World.

Basing from my experience, I love my Encara as a part of my daily makeup routine. It has light to medium coverage which is perfect if you don't want a heavy makeup for daytime. It does not cover all dark spots or blemishes but rather minimizes them. You may need to do spot concealing if you want to hide any pimple marks or dark areas like I do. As you can see from the photo above, the dark pimple mark below my the corners of my mouth were minimized but still visible.
This product may appear white and ghastly upon application. But after a few minutes when it has set and absorbed by the skin, it will appear well blended and in one with your skin. Like all other common and well known BB creams, it has a dewy finish. I sometimes like that effect but most of the time I set it with powder to make it matte. I also like the smell of this. It's hard to explain scents but I say it has a cool effect on the nose.
I have already been using it for almost a couple of months and so far no allergies or adverse reactions were experience. A little of this product goes a long way, too, so one tube of this would last you long time. After almost 2 months of using, I still have probably 50% of it left.
Have you already tried this product too? How do you find it?
