I had this BB cream for over a year now. The consistency is on the thicker side but you only need a tiny pea size amount to cover your face. If you use too much, it will look heavy. The coverage is between light and medium. Overall, this BB cream is all right. I think there are definitely better BB creams in the market.
Love this product. It is waterproof and holds up all day. My face looks amazing while wearing this. Best BB cream ever!
The first time I applied this bb cream I loved the way it covered my acne scars and its good oil control. Though, after 2 hours, it started to be looked like going deeper in my pore which made it looked bigger but still give good oil control. The color became darker as well
On the second day, my skin started to be ichy n felt like burning, and on the third day it strated to breakout my chin n between eyebrows even I`ve stopped using it.
All I can say, this bbc is not very suitable for acne prone skin. Should`ve stay away from this.
Though I want to try the etude ac clinic daily sun bb cream which for troublecare skin
I've tried several BB creams, both American and Korean. This is by far my favorite. The coverage is great, and it has an SPF of 30. I've tried other Korean BB creams that look a little grey, and they make me look ashen (like Holika Holika Essential Petit BB Cream). The Etude House BB Cream doesn't have as much grey in it. I am a fair-complected redhead and No. 2 Light Beige works very well with my skin tone. I bought it from a seller on eBay and it arrived from South Korea in only 10 days. I wear this every day, even if I don't wear any other makeup. I definitely plan on repurchasing this.
This is a decent BB cream. I use the shade W13, and although it looks like a yellow toned shade, its actually neutral. Half a pump is perfect for my whole face. The Bright Fit BB feels light on my skin and blends in OK. I think it gives light coverage, not totally sheer as stated on the product, and is also build-able towards a medium coverage with a second layer, but still is very breathable. My forehead is somewhat oily, and I do notice a bit oil control, but if you have really oily skin, the oil control won't really help you. I also feel this bb cream gives more of a natural or satin finish, rather then dewy. I do wish it was more moisturzing. It takes about 20 minutes to set in fully, and once it does, it looks pretty good. It lasts about 4-5 hours without setting it with powder. I paid ~$14CDN which isn't bad at all for 60g of product!
UPDATE Apr 26 2013
So after using this bb cream almost everyday, I find that it isn't ideal for everyday use on my skin. If i use it consecutively for about a week, it dries my skin out a little and irritates it slightly. But if I use it half the time, my skin is ok. I still like intitial results it gives my skin. Changing rating to a 3, also will not repurchase.
It continues to give me breakouts on my chin after the 2nd use. Beware!
it's not suitable for my skin, despite others tell this product is good for them. last only 4 hours then my face got oily again.
coverage ok, price ok, perfume ok ...
but the worst thing is it's kinda heavy when you put this on your face, i think it clogs my pores (thou it's written not).
This BB cream sounds like a perfect magic cream that will make ALL your skin problems go away!! For me, this BB cream causes more damage to my skin than anything else I have used!! The ingredients are GREAT for people with normal, dry, or aging skin, but NOT for oily and/or acne prone skin. The first 2 days my skin looked fine but after using it for one week, it DESTROYED my skin. My pores were clogged with white bumps all over my T-zones and VERY large inflammatory cystic acne around my chin. I stopped using it and was determined to find out WHY this BB cream exacerbated my acne so badly!!
This BB cream contains Codium Tomentosium Extract (seaweed extract), Ecklonia Cava Extract (a type of brown algae), and Gelidum Cartilagineum Extract (red algae). I read online blogs and scientific articles about comedogenic ingredients. Algae extracts are ranked as one of the most comedogenic ingredient. This explains why I always get severe acne outbreaks whenever I use BB cream (I used Skin 79 pink label, Missa, Dr. Jart, etc)!! Most of the BB creams are very Thick and contain algae extract or many comedogenic ingredients (like Isopropyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Myristate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Myristal Myristate, Laureth-4).
I know there are many excellent reviews about this BB cream. This review is more helpful for people with very sensitive and easily clogged acne prone skin. My conclusion for this BB cream is --> STAY AWAY from this BB cream (and ALL other BB creams that contain algae extract) if you have ACNE ISSUES!! continued >>
I bought samples of this in the lightest shade, 02. What mainly attracted me to this one was the promise of no parabens. I've had some very good luck with asian bb creams in the last year in terms of their texture and shades matching me pretty well. As for coverage, I'd classify this one as medium to full, I need a pea-sized amount to cover my acne and redness. It is easy to apply too much, and it does look obvious when I do, so use a light hand with this one. The finish is slightly glowy, but I don't find it particularly moisturizing. It is on the liquidy side, but it applies very well with a buffing brush, which is my preferred method of applying bb creams lately. The caveats for me were that even the lightest shade is slightly off on my skin, leaning too yellow. I can get away with it, but I am actually one of those who prefers the greyish bb creams, as they somehow adjust to my skintone better. The other issue I had with it was the lack of oil control, most noticeably on the nose and forehead areas. I don't know how this bb cream would fare in the warmer weather. I really wish this could have worked out better for me, but it falls short.
