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.
This bb cream is not the best but there are literally close to a hundred bb creams on the market right now so its hard to know which is really best
I have tried about 10-20 bb creams and nothing about this one really stands out, its just another bb cream
I tried this one in the color #1 radiant and when first applied its slightly too pale but then adjusts when it oxidizes
The one thing about this bb cream that I liked was that it looks extremely natural, it seems to "feed into" the skin unlike some other bb creams that just sit on the skin and look like makeup
This bb cream is also less oily than ones like lioele beyond the solution and skin79 hot pink but its not completely oil free it does start to get shiny after a couple of hours, also the coverage is pretty good id give the coverage a 4 out of 5
The one thing that I really dont like about this bb cream is that is super thick compared to some others... which means its not good for your skin! Im glad I did not buy the full size and only bought some samples...my hunt continues for the perfect bb cream
This is my first bb cream and I hated it.It was thick and greyish.I was so disappointed I swore off bb cream in general for like half a year until I came across a video on how to apply BB cream.
Now I just dot the cream on my face and pat gently.
I use this more as a makeup base before applying powder foundation because the coverage is not enough for my ance marks.
BB creams are supposed to improve your skin and it is true for this BB cream for me.My face has become smoother and my scars are slowly fading.I can see obvious improvement on my cheeks where there are a lot of small acne marks.
But my face has become fairer as well within a month so I'm thinking maybe I should stop using it after my scars fade.
This bb cream seems to be a little thick and while it does give good coverage, i think that it does seem to give me occasional outbreak. I have an unfinished tube and have long changed to more water based bb cream
I received samples for this and shade was in light beige.
I applied the bb cream after moisturizer.
Pros - Love how it glided smoothly on my face. I realized I have to use very little, so my face don't look chalky.
Cons - Light coverage, not enough to cover blemishes/faded or fresh acne scars. I was in OIL-VILLE the entire day. This is definitely NOT oil-free and/or suitable for combination/oily skin.
I also didn't use a primer before the bb cream so I'm not sure if that has to do with anything.
As much I love the properties it has (calming skin and etc), unfortunately, I will not be using this.
after tried Skinfood peach sake pore BB cream #2 that I found too yellow for me, Skinfood Aloe Sun BB cream ends my searching for the decent BB cream. Decent, as in not overpriced, sheer-medium coverage, and do what it says.
if you want to get full coverage, get nars or bobbi brown. if you want sheer coverage, daily use, cheap, low-risk [price vs break outs vs 'this is too heavy/tricky for daily use'] unless your daily basis includes running from one photo shoots to another, BB creams are good enough.
it comes in a tube, so it's less annoying than peach sake pore bb cream with its lousy pump.a pea-sized is enough for the whole face.
i don't usually use this alone. i put primer first, then skinfood BB aloe sun BB cream [i have shade #2, which curiously blends very well for my NC25 skin], then put some thin layer of powder mineral foundation on top. lasts for 8hrs, no greasy feeling or dryness. it's nice, and i just wear my 2nd skin, only better.
will repurchase? sure.
This bb cream is a bit darker and pinker than most bb creams and promises soothing moisturisation so I picked it up. The tone is ok for my NC25/30 skin. The texture is smooth and goes in easily. I don't find it that moisturising but it does make my skin nice and smooth looking. I wish bb creams were more friendly for my skin tone so I could find a "perfect" bb cream
I had trouble finding the perfect bb cream since most of them contain whitening, which I am allergic to. So when I got the SkinFood Aloe BB Cream sample, I tried and liked it immediately..and bought the full-size right away. It spreads nicely to my skin, and makes my skin looks porcelain-y. I don't have any issue with acne or uneven skin tone, thus I do not need a heavy coverage. But whenever I need to look more awake, this is the thing I reach for. I do not know about the lasting effect since most areas of my face are dry and nearly all products stay on me until I wipe them off.
I'm not a fan of the packaging. The tube contains ridiculous amount of air from the beginning (and who knows how many products is in there!) and it gives me hard times squeezing the product out.
I'll repurchase until I find another non-whitening BB cream which suits me better than this one.
I was looking for a new bb cream to try out after finishing the missha perfect cover bb cream. I thought that bb cream was only "okay, or decent" when compared to the skinfood aloe bb cream. It's coverage is great--a little bit goes a long way, but it doesn't necessarily cover up bad dark circles. I don't have a lot of acne so the coverage with this cream is perfect for me. It's not too thick and may come on a bit light in color at first but blends in well and the color matches my skin very well after it sets. I chose this cream because i saw reviews on its great OIL CONTROL. It doesn't make my face all oily at the end of the day used with a primer and a powder to set it! It also smells great! I love the flawless look it gives and makes my make up routine so much faster and easier. Haven't noticed any SKIN improvements at all an i've been using this for about 3 months. Definitely worth a try since its not that expensive!!!
