Ah-mazing product!!! I suffer from rosacea and my skin loves it, I found out about this bb cream in a rosacea forum where it was recomended so I decided to try it. Provides great coverage, lasts all day, dewy healthy looking finish and the must have high SPF. All the natural ingredients are great to sooth and calm the skin and even the skin tone, its very mosturizing and even smells nice unlike other bb creams I've tried. The only downside is that it's quite ashy (as most bb creams are anyway) and doesn't stay put too well without a powder. I team it up with mineralize skinfinish natural by MAC and I'm good to go!
I decided to revise my review. I have dry sensitive pale skin.
-pump and squeeze packaging are easy to use
-smell is nice
-#13 color is a perfect match for me. very pale
-coverage is medium to full
-didn't break my sensitive skin out
-lasts about 6 hours before slightly fading
-powdery finish with sheen(?)
-may be clogging
-skin looked irritated after removing
Overall the bb cream is alright on it's own. I don't really like the powdery finish on me and the irritation after removing is worrying. However, I found mixing this with another bb cream that has a more moisturising formula gives me a flawless finish. I also found when i mixed it my skin didn't get irritated. This bb cream isn't perfect on it's on for me but it is perfect when I mix it so I gave it an extra rating from my original score of 3.
I have mixed feelings about this product.
Whenever I have to wear makeup, I usually opt to use this. I believe it's mostly due to the fact that I don't really have anything else to use. So I have two shades, No. 23 and No. 27, and I mix those two together to get my ideal shade. I don't mind doing this though, because in comparison to other BB creams I've seen, this is the closest match to me. I think the thing I don't like the most, and which is why I can't give this product too high of a review, is the oily-ness of it. Once applied to my skin, it's an oil slick. It kind of looks and feels as though I'm rubbing skin coloured oil onto my skin and I cannot start to apply my powder, or even think of going outside without blotting first. Throughout the day, despite setting it in, it transfers everywhere. And, the product seems to exacerbate the combination skin I have into full on oily, which makes it a requirement to have blotting tissues with me.
I'm eventually going to look for a different BB Cream (or a foundation) because although the high SPF is something I love about this product, it's not perfect for my skin. Despite the negatives I've listed above, I'm still going to use it until I stumble onto something else, because I don't really have any other options.
Hmm, I'm still baffled why this seems to be the most popular/famous BB cream ...because of it's popularity, I tried it out twice in the Missha store in Korea, but it was just way too pink toned for me. I prefer a yellow or grey toned BB cream, because my skin is already a bit pink and I'd like to cover that. It reminds me of Revlon Color Stay which is also pink toned.
Yes Summer 2012 I too felt myself getting pulled into the BB Cream craze. However I think it's mostly because I FINALLY got my skin completely acne-free so wanted to use lighter coverage products on my face.
I had only tried several U.S. drugstore BB's, Garnier, L'oreal Magic BB, &the one that CoverGirl repackaged & *called* a BB even though the same ingredients were what they marketed as a Tinted Moisturizer for 10years.. >:(
Then I got a sample of MISSHA Signature in #21, and not long after trying the sample & loving it I took the plunge & purchased this one :) I got it from Amazon.com from a seller SeoulGlamour, it was not expensive ($11 USD IIRC?), is authentic, and arrived in a little over 2wks. (not affiliated in any way ofcourse)
I debated back & fourth with myself for probably a month before purchasing this b/c I was certain it was going to break my skin out. I looked at that ingredient list & thought Oh boy..that's just TOO many ingredients for my clog-prone skin! -Amazingly it's held it's own & not caused even one pimple for me (yay!). I find it to be the most full coverage of the BB's I've tried, but it's not as full coverage as a foundation.. if that makes sense?
For reference I have aging, very oily, somewhat acne-prone, more so clog-prone, fair (NC15 in MAC, Buff in Revlon CS) skin. While the #21 was an OK match in the sample I tried, I decided to go with #13 when I purchased the full size of Perfect Cover BB & I'm very happy I did. #13 is a nearly perfect match! It hides imperfections without looking like there's makeup on my skin, has suitable SPF, & comes in a pump bottle. I think my only minor gripe with this is that even though my skin is very oily, I still have to use moisturizer with it.. But that's only a very small complaint for such a great product :) I will definately repurchase. continued >>
It's good but not great, certainly not as good as the other reviews suggest in my opinion.
This stuff is Thick, like holy smokes thick. It also has a long drying time, almost like it never really set on my face, leaving it to wander into the sides of my nose, where makeup tends to settle.
Also the fragrance is too strong. Nothing you're putting on your face should have that strong a scent.
The colour is good though, and the coverage is nice. Being a light coloured person, it can be hard to find a shade that isn't too pink or yellow for me. If I can find a way to get it to set I'll probably keep using it.
I LOVE this product. I apply this very sparingly mostly to even out my skin tone. I use this following my regimen of toner and moisturizer. I apply in dots and spread out with either a foundation brush or my finger. When I do get the occasional blemish, I pat on a little bit into the problem area and in this way, it works great as concealer as well. I love that it has such a high SPF. I am lucky to have smooth skin and this bb cream makes my skin look even more velvety. I finish off this product with my compact. Best everyday bb cream!
I'm about NC20-25, and No.21 is a bit light for me, No.23 matches me much better as it seems to oxidize a little after a few hours. I only need one pump of this BB cream to give me a thin layer to even out my complexion. I use my fingers to apply this product as it blends a lot easier. I then would set it with a light powder foundation that matches my skin tone. I like that it has a high UV protection, but there is a strong perfume smell that you have to get used to.
I honestly LOVE this bb cream. I've never tried any other bb cream before but after my skin cleared up from nasty acne I've realized I wanted to try something different that would look a lot more natural on my face. I was using Revlon Colorstay before in #110. I liked it because it stayed on me literally the WHOLE day. I started to kind of dislike it because it could easily look very cakey and not natural on my face and also, I didn't need the full coverage anymore. After some research online about Asian (especially Korean) BB creams, I realized the the MISSHA BB creams are very good. I've decided to buy this one on ebay (rubyruby) and it was 40% off too! so I got one and after a week of use I ordered another one! :)
I've been using this for a few weeks now and I love it. My skin is very oily in my T-zone, so I wanted this product to stay on for a long time because of that. I work as a barista and even after an 8 hour shift this is still looking perfect. Also I'm very happy about the SPF 42 and the anti wrinkle stuff this thing has. My skin is oily-combination and it looks great even in the summer. (I do put on powder after I apply this)
Also, what really impressed me was the coverage! It's amazing! it covers all of my acne scaring and redness! wow!
I tried using light coverage foundations before and they didn't really work with me because they just didn't stay on or just made me look extremely shiny and oily. yikes. ( for ex, Burjois healthy mix)
overall it's an awesome product!
I have been using this BB Cream for 6 months now and it gives excellent coverage! I'm NC 40 and got shade #23 but I recently realized the shade is a bit too light for me. I will try the #27 in hopes that it'll be a perfect match! This does not clogg my pores at all!
