After hearing all the reviews about BB cream, I decided to try it out and ordered it for about 12 bucks on Amazon. If you order it from ebay or Amazon, make sure you get it from a reputable saler because there are some fakes going around. But anyways, I got it and immediately tried it out. You have to pump it a few times to get product out and then it got kinda stuck and I thought I broke it, but it was only because the cream was coming outs.The coverage is light to medium and is very buildable. I still need to experiment with how much I'll use on a daily basis. It's easy to blend and is extremely light. It doesn't even look like I'm wearing makeup. I did not notice any problems with the grayish/white cast and it blended beautifully. It didn't cover my acne too well, but I think it might be because I didn't use enough. Patting concentrates the product to cover scars and hyperpigmentation, which is something I neglected to do because I was in a huge rush! XD It also covered up my dark circles beautifully! It works better than my concealers which are impossible to blend and look cakey and never match my skin tone...and end up melting off my eyes. This blended in beautifully and didn't accentuate them even more.Seeing the consistency of the product, I expected it to like slide and run off my face and make it extremely greasy and oily, so I added some powder over it in case. Surprisingly, this stuff really helped control the oil on my face! Normally, by 12 my face is like extremely shiny (even with powder) but my skin still looked great. I even ran the mile in gym and it was realllly hot and humid outside and I was sweating. My skin still looked amazing. By 5ish, it got a little more greasy but you can't really notice it and when I press on my face with my fingers, it still feels matte and barely any oil transfers off. Plus, there's SPF in here, but it doesn't make me look pale in pictures. Also, it leaves a kind of dewy finish and it makes my skin glow.I absolutely love this stuff so far. I don't know about the wrinkle properties and the whitening, but I feel like this stuff is better for my skin. It feels light and is extremely natural and provides some SPF protection and it isn't horribly expensive like my Bare Minerals is. It doesn't feel cakey and blends in beautifully and keeps your face matte but dewy. My only problem is that it doesn't really cover up large pores as much as I would have liked it to. But it's not a big deal since I'm not looking for an airbrushed look. will update this after I use this for a loner period of time.EDIT: After learning a bit more in my classes, I will NOT repurchase this. There are quite a few ingredients in it that I don't really like and to be on the safe side, I don't use this as often anymore. The only time I really use it is after a breakout (to help lighten up the scars) and when I'll be in the sun, since I still haven't purchased a foundation with SPF protection.

i needed something that would stay on my face through summer cuz where i live it gets very very hot and humid. everything would slide off :( plus i have oily skin which doesnt help. i've heard and read many reviews of this product and they were mostly all positive. this does stay up on my face all day long even when im sweating alot which is quite amazing. but i've heard this was medium to full coverage...anddd to me, it's more like maybe light to medium coverage. i have tons of hyper pigmentations and scars from acne and blemishes that need to be covered. layering this helps a bit but not much. i still use my concealer for those spots after putting this bb cream. it definitely doesnt feel as heavy as foundations and to me, i think this feels lighter than Missha M bb cream (but i dont have them side by side to really compare, i had missha a year or so ago).Im not so sure if it gets oxidizes but i dont think it does? even if it does, then it's very subtle. this bb cream is a bit gray that it may look really off once you put it on, but it will slowly start to match better. it has spf and whitening effect (as in lightening hyper pigmentation) which are plus plus :D sometimes i skip my moisturizer and solely put this straight ahead. i feel like whitening is working a bit very slowly cuz my scars seem lighter after using this for about a month or two now

This stuff is awesome! I have seen such an improvement in my skin since I started using it, even when I'm not wearing makeup. It has evened out my skin tone drastically! As far as coverage goes, it's the perfect happy medium between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer. I've got big pores, this doesn't hide them as well as a regular primer but it also doesn't emphasize them like the majority of foundations I've tried. I live in Florida, so I am hot and sweaty and pink in the face the majority of the time and this stuff does a great job of staying on through the sweat and keeping the redness at bay. When it first comes out of the bottle it looks kind of gray, but once you blend it in and let it sit on your face a minute that goes away. But I am really pale, so I don't know how it would work for someone with darker skin. I'm pretty hard to please when it comes to foundation-type products, I haven't bought the same one twice in a row like... ever... but with this I've finally landed on something I want to stick with!

I love this BB cream. I bought this and the gold label, and I use this on days where my skin is feeling oily, alternating with the gold label. It smooths my skin and is an excellent base/primer for full makeup, and is a one step for days I am not feeling like doing a whole lot with my face. It evens out my skin tone, and reduces redness on my cheeks and covers under eye dark circles when I am tired from being up with kidlets at night or my allergies are acting up. I am giving it a 4 out of 5 only because I can't use it every day, it changes my skin type when I use it to the point where it gets drier the day after.

This is the first BB Cream that I purchased. I started using this since Nov 2010. I love the consistency of this product, its not too thick and not runny. It easily blend in your face when you apply. At first you may think its too light but give it a little time to oxidize and amazingly it will match your skintone. I has a light to medium coverage and has a dewy finish, I like it to set it with my MAC natural mineralized skin finish in medium. I find it easier to use with my finger than brush, I guess the warmth works better. I have normal to oily skin, and I didn't experience any break out. Its great for everyday use especially in daytime because it has a SPF. Whats great about this product is all you need is 1-2pumps. A little really goes a long way thats why it took me 6months to consume the whole bottle. I find that this product can last up to 6hrs depends on the weather. Bottomline is I recommend this product.

I decided to jump on the B.B. bandwagon and boy, was I lucky that this was my first try! I absolutely love this product. It does a fantastic job of evening my skin tone without looking "made up", it helps to mattify my skin (though I'm not super oily), it protects, and there is a noticeable improvement to my skin's appearance. Since wearing it for the past 3 weeks, I've been able to venture outside sans maquillage a few times just because my skin has been improved that much. It has definitely helped to fade acne scars. The best part, though, is that it has not caused any breakouts. I tend to break out in cystic acne around my chin with many foundations and tinted moisturizers, and my acne seems to be under control.I would say that this has substantial coverage, before purchasing I was used to Almay's Nearly Naked foundation and I found this to have slightly more coverage. It's also very thick so you really don't need a whole lot of product to even your skintone.I got this at Gloria Fashion and Gift in Toronto's Koreatown for $28 and I feel that it was worth every penny. The website claims that they are cruelty-free. Absolutely will be buying again and again! continued >>

Skin79 is perhaps an infamous cult brand for the Korean BB cream market. This one is quinessential, most of the adverts out there seem to be targetting towards this version which claims to whiten and prevent wrinkles whilst shielding the skin from harmful UV rays. It comes in a round cylinder plastic pump bottle that dispenses the cream well, and earns a brownie point on the hygiene aspect. One may be surprised by the level of grayness in the cream, however, it evens out and blends into my skin pretty seamlessly. Contrary to the reviews given, this cream does not give me a grayish cast. Nor does it whiten my skin tone. To put into persepctive, this product only evens out the skintone. However, if you are having sky high expectations that it'll make your skin flawless (eg; covers all imperfections and pimple marks), then your hopes will be shattered. A seperate concealer will be required to achieve this effect.One caveat for this product is that it tends to make my combination skin oily. Pair it with an oil free moisturiser or lightly dust the skin with loose powder would do the trick. I would not recommend this for girls with oily skin.

Ever since I've bought this product it's been a go-to for me. Easy application, blends fairly easily, and buildable. Takes a minute to oxidize and finishes with a slight dew. It has a light floral/clean scent that doesn't stick around for long. I found the easiest way to apply it was with your fingers rather then a brush or pad. The pump is convenient and sanitary, but it is a little bit harder to control the amount sometimes (took a little bit getting used to for me anyway:P). I guess a con I have would be that there's no lock for the pump, so traveling with it may turn messy, I would suggest putting it in a plastic bag before throwing it into your make-up bag!

I really wanted to like this product. This was the first BB Cream I've ever tried, and I did so after reading numerous reviews here and elsewhere. I have very oily, pale skin, so after applying my primer, I applied this product and I waited for it to dry before setting it with powder. I would have to agree with those that say it gives your skin a grey hue, not only that but even with powder and primer, it doesn't stay matte very long at all, a few hours at most.Overall, I was not satisfied, and I didn't bother using it anymore than that to see if it causes acne or not.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! It's my HG foundation.PROS:- Creamy formula- Applies smoothly- Medium coverage while still looking "natural" - Oil controlling- Decent price (paid $20 w/ shipping, and used to pay $20 for revlon colorstay)- Spf 25- Doesn't break out my acne prone skin- Makes skin feel very soft- Contains 1.4 oz of product while many foundations contain 1 ozCONS:- Isn't accessible is stores in most countries (must resort to shipping)- Packaging is a bit bulky/large compared to most foundations- Can't see through packaging therefor it is hard to tell how much product there is left- Only comes in one shade, so it only suits lighter skin tones- The spf 25 in the product can be a pain if taking picturesCan't really think of many cons, this stuff is that good!I've been using everyday for about 2 weeks since ordering it off of amazon for about $20 (including shipping) and I don't see how I'll ever go back to a normal foundation. This is the first BB cream I have tried and I am very impressed. The formula is quick thick and creamy, like a moisturizer. I apply it with my fingers and it goes on so smooth and streak free, I've never been able to apply a foundation with my fingers like this before. It give great coverage for someone who is looking to even their skin tone and cover slight blemishes. I still use a little bit of concealer under my eyes and on acne, but not nearly as much as before. What I love most is that this stuff looks soooo natural. It really looks like my real skin, but more perfect! It is a bit grey looking when applied, but it oxidizes right away and works well for my light/medium skin tone, as well as my sisters skin tone (she is very very pale!). It has good oil control, but I still like to use my UD De-Slick spray before applying BB cream. THe packaging is nice too, it looks cute and I love the pump, I just wish there was a way to tell how much product I have left. I had high expectations for this BB cream from all it's reviews on makeup alley and with youtube gurus, and I was not disappointed at all, but surprised at how great this actually it! I would recommend it to anyone who has a lighter skin tone. I love this and will repurchase over and over again!
