Wow, I am shocked at all the bad reviews on this product! I just received it as a gift from Korea. I am a medium toned Asian and when I tried it out for the first time today it Iooked really natural and had a nice glowy finish - no grayish hue or any other strange color. After using it awhile I will update, but so far I am impressed. The consistency is nice and it blended well with my fingers. For those who are complaining that the coverage was not good enough, I first put a thin layer on and then I went over my darker areas again, just patting it into my skin. A BB cream is not supposed to cover all your sins, just improve the skin tone so it looks more even. I like the fact that it doesn't cover everything and make your face look like a mask.
I'm not impressed by this BB cream from Laniege.
-The colour has a strong grey tinge to it.
-The blending process is not as easy as using a tinted moisturiser because it dries too quickly.
-My usually dry skin felt greasy and itchy soon after applying this cream.
-Though the consistency and sheer coverage was actually good, this gave me cystic acne which I have never suffered from before.
-The fragrance was too strong.
-The high shimmer content made this a better highlighter than base.
-The cream felt like a "mask" and my skin could not breathe.
-An expensive mistake.
-I cannot believe there is a "Shimmery" version of this. This was sparkly enough.
-The information that came with the box was misleading and I did not intend to "whiten" my complexion at all.
-It's a shame that I won't be even using the rest of the tube and it's so poor quality that I won't be giving it away to friends either.
-There's no way I'd buy this again.
Too greasy and sticky to my skin and did not cover anything include redness pores blackhead (didn't even my skintone too!) My face get oilly 1 hour after applied this BB cream, very disappoint product from Laneige
One of my least favourite BB creams. Colour was a very grey-tinged pink beige, the coverage was lacking (barely covered my redness) and did nothing to make my skin look radiant. My skin looked even more dull after putting it on and the lasting power wasn't as good as other BB creams I've tried. Oiled up on my t-zone even when set with power (I have normal skin). Not a hit for me.
Oh, this is best BB cream I have ever used. The application of the cream is really good for sunscreen especially on my last trip to China. The weather in China is unbearable with the hot sun but the BB cream application last for a long time and protect my skin from the crazy UV . I also love the fact it make me look fresher and it did not clog my pores. Love the Laneige BB cream (^.^) !!!!!!!!!
I used to really liked this product, that is until i started using Missha's signature bb cream. I have dry combination skin and Missha's bb cream totally won me over. I'm in love! This in comparison falls short.
The texture of Laneige's bb cream is moisturizing and coverage is lighter than normal bb creams. Definitely not recommended for oily combination skin. It has a light perfumy scent, very nice actually. It spreads easily, feels very light and moisturizing, rather sheer coverage. If you like this kind of bb cream, go for it.
This purchase was my first foray into BBcream use. I was definitely concerned about the coloring, but prepared to mix it with darker foundations if I needed to do so.I'm definitely darker than most bbcream users.
While it was on it's way, I discovered that Misscha makes a bbcream for golden beige skintones, and I found it on one website, but I had already ordered this onefrom an online wholesaler.
The tube was a bit smaller than I expected for the price. The writing on the back was in Korean. So, all I could tell is that it's for whitening, ha spf 41, and is PA ++. First I tried it on my hand and could see the grey tone I had heard described about bbcreams. I was undaunted.
I put it generously on one half of my face, including the eye area I could see that it was lighter and greyer than my natural complexion. I then applied my usual undereye concealer.
The amazing thing was that all I needed to do to even my skin tone was to apply the same loose finishing powder that I wear every day to set my undereye concealer!!! I applied it all over my face and I was back to my natural color. (MUFE loose powder in apricot)
I have normal skin and don't have a problem with breakouts. This product hasn't caused me any itching, redness, or pimples. I'm very happy to be able to skip the steps of brightening serum, moisturizer, and facial spf.
I've been using this for over 6 months and it has turned my routine around.
I figure alot of the reviewers here mention that it does not cover well, but in my opinion, BB creams are not meant to be foundations. If you are looking for intense coverage you should consider foundations and not BB creams of any label. I find most BB creams are sheer and cover redness. This BB cream performs well under in covering redness. But like most BB creams I find it doesn't compliment my skin tone, but I overcome this by not using too much and to blend with my foundation sponge. Its a good sheer base if you want to continue using foundation.
While I like that it is a 3 in 1, particularly the high spf. I still layer my moisturiser underneath as I have dry skin. I find that this BB cream sits dewyly on my skin and it has benefitted somewhat in its condition since using it.Or it could be that it is doing a good job of covering flaws without looking like makeup.
But this has become part of my quick as flash morning routine. I use Paula's Choice Super Antioxidant Concentrate, then this and then a light dusting of Chanel Universal Poudre followed by my day other make up partners blusher & mascara.
Yes I would repurchase, maybe this time I will venture using the shimmer one.
I have not had much success with Laneige products (their cleansers, toners, foundations...) but thought I'd give this a go anyway. I purchased #2 which is the one without the shimmer. The colour left quite a grey cast on me, with a slight pink tone. It didn't do much to make my skin look brighter or anything. The texture is thin and the coverage is light. It can be built up but personally I couldn't even get this to medium coverage. It just about covered redness and evened out my skin, but that was it. It got rather oily on my t-zone within a matter of hours. I love hydrating BB creams but this left me too shiny for my liking. It didn't break me out or irritate my sensitive skin (I only used it 3 times though so who knows) which was good. However that is really the only plus point about this. All my other BB creams are long-wearing and last without touch-ups throughout the day/night but the lasting power of this one was not so good, seemed to melt off my face. I would not repurchase.
I had the same experience with usnguyen. Since this BB cream is from Laneige, I thought it would be of high quality. Unfortunately, after around an hour of wearing it, my face started to itch. And when I finally got home and took it off, I had breakouts and redness all throughout. Just thinking of it makes me itchy and angry at the same time. I couldn't locate the ingredients either. The fragrance in this product is pretty strong. I have this in the natural shade, #2. If you have hypersensitive skin, I advise you skip this product.
