I found this bb cream at pacific mall in markham , there is like 4 store that sell it at different prices for the same product! Anyway i got my for $ 30 which is a lot more expensive then ebay. i am nc 20 in mac with combination skin, and it blended into my skin perfectly. The texture is very smooth , not hard to blend , i really like the feeling of wearing bb cream cause it feel very natural and light on my skin. I find that it look more natural on skin then any foundation or mineral makeup i have ever try.I will purchase it again but on ebay instead, and properly try other brands of bb cream!
When I first saw people described the BB cream, I was suspecting it is similar to Parthena's Amino Fill .... and it is. Parthena is the previous life of Skinn, for those in N. America it is a brand that sells cosmetics on TV. I wrote Skinn a couple of times asking them to bring back this product, they didn't even bother to respond. Haaaa, so much for customer appreciation.
Entering the world of BB cream, it's like using the blur function in Photoshop. It is not foundation, not tinted moisturizer, it is weak in covering dark melasma, indented acne scar, undereye dark circles. However, it will make the above less noticeable, smooth the skin/pores, "lightens" & brightens the skin, in the most natural manner. Under any types of light, at different angles, it is undetectable, just make sure to bring it down towards the neck. I topped it with a translucent powder (Sana Powerstyle compact spf 45). The result is awesome.
It comes in one shade, since this is marketed in Asia, I think people up to NW or NC 40 (maybe up to NC 45) can use it.
Since the weather is getting warmer, this product takes the place of moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation, I can skip all that do-da with this one product. BTW, it comes in a cute container with an airless pump, it stated that it has gold & caviar & it is "wrinkle improvement", not for a second I believe this, same goes for those plant extract jazz as well.
I also purchased the Skin 79 miniature set, with 4 variations of BB cream, 2 of which has spf 25, 1 is the diamond collection & the 4th one is Peral/luminous. The superficial quality are the same for the first three, while the "pearl" one has a slight slight shimmer. Since the BB cream makes the skin so smooth looking I do not find the "pearl" one is necessary.
Definitely will explore more, I am looking for a BB cream concealer.
This product is great. I am very fair skin caucasian and the color which has a slight grey hue is a good match. I have moderate rosacea and the cream provides adequate covererage without feeling too heavy and the sunscreen has yet to irritate my sensitive skin. The packaging is awesome and one pump is all you need to cover your face. I wish an American cosmetic company would make a similar product as it is a bit of a hassle chasing this down on Ebay. I would like to try more of Skin79's products.
I am a bb cream addict. This has been the best one I have ever used. I tried Dr. Jart and Skinfood, but seriously Skin79 is the best. Although this is for 25 or older but I have never cared about that. It is full of caviar and gold and lots of other goodies. I love this simply because the coverage is great. I don't have acne on my face but I do have acne scars which I hate. This dims them also. I have never broke out from this bb cream and it is simply one of the best.
I would definetly use this one again. But I always rotate my bb creams so I don't get sick of them.
