I purchased this BB cream online through Amazon, through a company called university books and cosmetics. I thought the name was strange, but the product was really good and suited my skin.
I received this product as a gift from my cousin and couldn't use it for a few months because the pump was broken. I finally popped it open and started using it this past month. The color I have is in no.23 overall I like this bb cream, it is definitely a legitimate bb cream unlike a lot of the western drug store ones. It is thick in consistency, grayish in tone but once applied the color obvious changes to suit your skin tone. For me, it gives me enough coverage so that I can skip a concealer, if I do need more I just concentrate more of the product on the problem area. Overall it does feel nice on the skin but it doesn't last too long for me. Within 3 hours I need to blot of reapply powder over it. I don't like that my pump doesn't work but I'm sure it's very convenient for those that do work.
I am very pleased with this BB cream.. I have worn it every day (except some weekends) under my foundation. I moisturize, let that sit, then apply the Missha by putting it on my fingers and dabbing it on the skin (not rubbing) just patting it all over kind of like you would do with a beauty blender but with my fingers... I let that sit while fixing me a cup of coffee and letting it set (dries to a beautiful finish) then I stipple whatever foundation I'm wearing that day on top of it... It is awesome for primer use and for giving your skin a flawless finish with a foundation on top or not.. I think alot of people do not realize this product needs to be patted in to the skin, not rubbed like a foundation... It is fabulous.. My skin is hydrated, clear, soft.. I just love it! I've ordered the Rachel K only because I want to try it but this Missha will always be a staple product for me and I will always wear it under foundation. The SPF is very high. 42 I believe, so you get many skin benefits on top of the SPF... I have normal to dry skin and this works perfect for me... As cheap as you can get it on Amazon, it's worth a try! :-)
I really wanted to love this product! bought it in japan, sadly- i am not asian- i bought number 23 and the colour does not match european skin colours,,, also- the cover is not that good, it feels sticky and i really had some better BB creams...(this did not make my skin soft or prevent spots...) the only good thing about it is the high SPF....

Its like a coverage of foundation and im a nc35 and i wear the shade number 27 and it covers so much!!!! i just need abit of concealer and im good to go. and best part is, it doesn't break me out, it looks like literally im not wearing any foundation, it DOES NOT MAKE ME OILY AT ALL!!!!!!!!!

Blemish Balm, also called BB Cream, is known to have been formulated as an after-treatment cream to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery to soothe and regenerate the skin.
The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.
Whitening + Anti-Wrinkle + UV Protection (SPF 42 PA+++)
-matte almost claylike finish (looks smooth)
-feels light on skin
-no breakouts or irritation
-does not clog my pores
-not good for full coverage (light-medium)
-does not control oily skin all day (lasts for about 5-6 hours)
-does not cover red acne marks
-does not cover acne scars
-it is build-able...but not easily build-able
-the whitening and anti-wrinkle are not really testable so it could just be words (i haven't noticed anything and I"ve been using it for about a month)
Do not buy this if you want full coverage. This is more meant for skin that is clear and brightens up their complexion giving it a nice healthy glow that is even. It's a nice "no makeup" look.
I bought my BB cream from the Missha store when I visited Seoul last year and about a month after continuous use I saw big improvements. I've been using this BB cream for over a year now and I love it. I have oily acne prone skin and with most foundations, after 3 hours the foundation melts off my face and I get cakiness around my nose area. This BB cream lasts longer than the foundations but I still do get the oiliness after about 5 hours. With an oil control primer I stretch that out to 6-7 hours. I don't break out as often as I used to and I've noticed a slight lightening of my skin (maybe it's the sunscreen). The coverage is a medium coverage. If I need a little more, I just dab a little more on the places that need more coverage. In the winter, I don't use powder on top of it, but I need powder in the summer to keep the shininess at bay. I agree with the other reviewers in that if you have dry, flaky skin, this BB cream tends to enhance that so applying a primer or moisturizer beforehand will help if you have dry skin. It does have a slight scent which I find pleasing and it goes on so smoothly you only have to use a small amount (1 pump is enough). You really get a lot of value here. I paid about $18 US for my BB Cream (it was on sale) and I've used up maybe 1/3 of the tube after almost 1 year of use.
I use the shade #27 and I am tan (NC40) and have acne-prone skin with large pores. I think the color matches me. I didn't get the darker shade #31 because it looks orange.
I love this stuff. I don't like the feeling of foundation on my face so I really love the weightless feeling of this BB cream. I also love that it minimizes my pores and evens out my face. It really gives a natural flawless finish. My face looks even better if I use the BB boomer prior to applying the BB cream. I've been using this for a few months now and it is my go to favorite "foundation" and it hasn't broken me out. It does have a floral scent but it fades out quickly. I don't even notice the smell anymore. I got this for 40% off at the Missha US website so check them out from time to time because they always go on sale throughout the year.
Misssha BB cream has wreaked havoc on my skin! Painful cystic acne all over my chin and bumps on my forehead. I didn't even have this bad of acne as a teenager when I was prone to acne. I'm discontinuing use today and hopefully my skin will get back to normal within a week. Though I may be stuck with red marks left behind for a while. I'm sorry I ever tried this. The one positive thing about this was the color, #27, which was perfect match for my olive complexion. I wish Dr. Jart would make darker colors because that one didn't break me out. I twas just too light for me which is why I decided to give Missa a try.
I do like this!! The coverage is great! Really smoothes out my skin. No.21 is good for my NC 20 skin. Though I have to be careful about using this product when I have a cold/during allergy season when my nose is flaky and not properly moisturized because the pigments in this thing will cling on and emphasize the dryness :(
