is this available here in SM Davao and ABREEza?because when I search it here in the internet I could not find ALoe BB Cream only Mushroom,but i use regularly the ALOe...I hope to see your reply...
I was looking for a bb cream that would work for my oily/acne prone skin. I bought this when bb creams were becoming more popular so there weren't as many bb creams in the market at the time of purchase.
I read some good reviews on this bb cream and that it worked well on oily skin. Honesty, I don't think it's great for oily skin. I notice I do get pretty oily in maybe 3 hours more of less depending on the weather, and I always set it with a finishing powder.
I like the coverage of this bb cream. It has a light to light medium coverage, and its fairly buildable. I got the shade 2 and it looks a bit orangey out the bottle, but it blends nicely into the skin. I like to apply it on with my fingers or a stippling brush. It also didn't irritate or break me out which is always great.
As far as the scent, I really like it! It doesn't smell like makeup, it smells like a scented lotion to me. The scent is kind of strong, if someone is close enough to you they can smell it off your face. If you are sensitive to strong scents or just don't like your makeup to be scented, I would stay away from this product.
Overall, I do like this bb cream but it's not a good bb cream for oily skin. I would say this would work better on someone not so oily like me.
This bb cream smells great and texture is not too thick so it is easy to spread. I have shade # 2 and it is okay for my NC35 skin, Just slightly lighter than my natural skin tone but works well to brighten up the face a bit and blends pretty well into your skin. I only use it on my blemishes and not all over my face since it may clog pores as I am acne prone. I only use it every once in awhile as a concealer or when I am going out for an event. The coverage is pretty thin and sheer so if you have dark scars or under eye circles they may still show through but just lightened.
-It smells good (for me, at least).
-It is a light, easy to spread BB cream, good for daily use.
-It is cheap.
-The texture is smooth, not a sticky one.
-The dewey effect is almost perfect. It leaves you a moist appearance yet it does not make your skin look too matte, too oily or too dry.
-It has a nice yet light formula that suits my oily skin so somehow it does not cause acnes.
-Low coverage ability. If you have pimples, dark spots, redness, marks, or any of those, you have to apply much amount in order to cover your skin or else it will be still clearly visible.
-Low viability. It started to fade just after 3-4 hours and if you blot your face even with the softest tissue, you will get some residue of this BB cream.
Overall this is a nice BB cream, if only I am not looking for a long lasting BB cream, I will definitely repurchase.
Of all the BB creams I reviewed this is my favorite. It is a dupe (to me at least) of the La Mer TM. Same performance, texture, etc. Side by side Shade 2 of the SF is nearly identical to medium of the LM.
Natural look. After 10 minutes the shade blends with your skintone and looks like a better version of your own skin.
Very inexpensive if purchased online.
Nice mild scent.
Not too dewey, not too matte.
Larger amount than the other SF BB creams.
The coverage is qite light, but still enough to cover minor imperfections. Doesn't accentuate dry patches, so can definetely be used on those with dry skin. Looks devy and nearly perfect upon application, but gets shiny and starts sliding from my face after about an hour despite primer and setting powder AND setting spray (!!!). So this is not good enough for everyday use in the office. I still keep my tube for occasional application on weekends while at home and can be worn 2-3 hours without turning very ugly. For the reference I have combo skin with oily T-zone, so probably ladies with dryer skin can still make it work. The finish is beautiful and very natural. I just wish it lasted longer.
Coverage: 10%, layering possible
Staying Power: up to 4 hr without powder, up to 6 hr with powder
It's an okay bb cream, not my favorite cause it didn't wow me (looked about the same with and without). This will be something I'd go for when I'm doing the minimal makeup look. It can feel quite sticky when first applied, but a little bit of Gurelain Meterorite will fix that. I don't recommend wearing BB cream without translucent powder on top.
This is an average Korean BB Cream. At the cheapest end of the spectrum, it does quite well as a moisturizer, oil controller, and evens out the skin color of your face. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is little to no coverage for blemishes or dark spots. As for the "aloe qualities" promoted by Skin Food, I haven't seen any major improvement to my skin quality after using this product everyday for 2 months.
I have porcelain Asian skin that is very fair, so there are by far much better options for me as far as Asian BB Creams go. Therefore, I wouldn't repurchase.
I like this bb cream. I have a really light skin tone, so #1 suitet me quite nice. The coverage are indeed quite sheer, but you can try to double it up. This bb cream is not to oily on my skin (weey).
Since the coverage somethimes are to sheer for my liking i mix this bb cream with my shiseido foundation, and the result is awesome!
This is a good BB Cream, my first Skinfood BB cream. It really moisturizes my skin and it last long. At first when I apply it, my face becomes kinda pink-ish but then it becomes normal and gives a matte look. Finish with compact or loose powder and you're good to go. This is my everyday BB cream. It doesn't give much coverage which is pretty great because I don't really like cakey effect on my face. But for some occasions I need to cover my imperfections I just use concealer before applying this and it's perfect.
- Perfect everyday BB cream
- Light, non-cakey BB cream
- Smells nice
- Moisturizes skin well.
- Last long.
- Only need a VERY small drop into your hand, it can be used for the whole face.
- I think this is for Koreans who have paler/whiter skin than me. I have yellow/brown undertone and I don't think this is very suitable for me.
- When I'm sweaty or tired or it's really a hot day, my face gets kinda pink/red-ish. But only for a few minutes.
- Literally no coverage. So this isn't very useful when you need to cover some flaws in your skin. Totally a day bb cream.
I don't think I'll purchase this again. I'm still searching for a perfect BB cream.
