This product is such a dissapointment...
First of all, I do not think it should be called "BB cream". I have not tried any other, true, but I read the reviews and this provided nothing like what I have come to expect from reading about other BB creams. In fact I did not see it perform what it claims.
It did almost nothing to improve my skin tone, it sat as a lump of oil on my face but managed to leave it dry after I took it off, there was no hydrating action whatsoever (tried it over my moisturizer, over serum, alone, you name it), I did get a random acne mark here and there everytime I used it...
To cut it short, I say this: it is not only an extra, uneccessary step in my routine, but it is also doing my skin worse that it is. Plus, it has a lingering smell. Not offensive but it stays and stays and stays...
The ONLY thing I liked is its matching to my skin tone, the packaging (so-and-so), its consistency and the easy way it applied.
Threw it on the bin yesterday and will not buy again.
I don't know about BB cream, but this is definitely a great beauty product! I have been hesitant to order the traditional asian BB creams because I have trouble finding a reputable distributor, but this was available at the CVS i work at so I picked it up after work. It was on sale for $10.
At first I was unsure if I should apply this after a regular moisturizer, or in place of my regular moisturizer (Olay complete for sensitive skin, even though my skin is not sensitive at all. I just like that it is Fragrance free that way) Well I used it in place of my regular moisturizer and it was fantastic. It moisturized my dry cheeks and kept my forehead moisturized, but not too shiney. It applied well, needed a little bit of blending and rubbing to get the color even, but once that was done i looked great! Like seriously great. Like how i wished I looked with no makeup. I still needed concealer on my under eyes (curse you genetics!) but i even have been skipping that because I just feel so much more confident about my skin.
Now I know typical "tinted moisturizers" dont usually take the place of a regular moisturizer, but trust me this stuff will. I wash my face with my clairsonic and kiehls oil free face wash, then apply my olay simply ageless eye cream, wait for that to set and then apply this BB cream. Don't squirt out too much because that will make it harder to blend in. But after that you are done! I just put on some concealer on my under eyes and power and i am ready to go.
So far no break outs after a week of use, but my skin is very tough and I usually never have bad reactions to products. Definitely worth a try! This product is awesome and has cut my makeup routine in half almost! And my face looks better than with any foundation I have ever tried. I have been suggesting it to everyone!
If you have acne don't consider buying this, it was a waste of money and how are these shades supposed to cover every single person's skin? It made my skin look oilier and made my pimples look even bigger. It smells good though.
I had high hopes for this "BB cream". The coverage is better than I expected and it truly blurs fine lines as it claims. The only and biggest issue I had with this product was the shine. I'm a huge fan of the dewy look but this made my face appear super oily. The sheen was just too much for me. I've also tried using this cream under my normal foundation and it was just too cakey looking. I won't be purchasing again.
I bought this product simply because it was only $25 for two bottles at costco so I decided to try it out. I was actually surprised by how much I liked it. The coverage is supposedly light but it's totally buildable and I managed to get a medium coverage out of it. It still looked natural despite how much I layered it and it felt really soft on my skin. I had it on all day and it stayed in place and still looked great up until I washed it off. I was surprised to see that it didn't look pink or orange in the sunlight, like most foundations and powders do. That made me so happy! I would definitely recommend it.
After reading all the reviews I thought this product would be bad. I purchased it on a whim after seeing the words bb cream. I've used it for a couple days and I really like it. I am asian and have light skin but it has a warm undertone so I purchased the medium/dark. It blends in perfectly with my skin and gives me a natural and dewy finish. It doesn't get greasy for me through out the day because I have normal/dry skin. Also it is very dry where I live. The product gives me the perfect amount of coverage and leaves my skin looking flawless. I don't have problems with acne or anything so it's not that hard to cover up anything. I like the way it feels on my face because it's not as heavy as foundation. I enjoy wearing it to class or when I need to put something quick on my face. It does wash off very easily but I don't really sweat during the day so it works fine. Definitely would purchase again but I also really wanna try the bb creams from Missha. Glad that a bb cream is readily available at the local walmart though.
This product was horrible, dried out my skin while also giving me no coverage and none of the benefits it states. The light was too light for my skin tone while the dark being way to dark for my skintone. This product was way too expensive for the quality of the prduct, i will not buy this product again and do not suggest it for anyone with sensitive skin. getting your money back for buying for this product is also a hassle they make it difficult to even file a complaint showing that they do not take into account criticism about their products.
I was actually surprised that I like this product. I wore it over my sunscreen and it made my face look dewy and bright. It blended in my red spots but i still dabbed concealer over them and finished with some mineral powder and my skin looked picture perfect. Until a few hours later when I became super shiny! I'm just a bit worried because my friend has been using it for a while and has begun to break out. I'm pretty prone to breakouts so I'm trying the Missha BB cream as well. On the lookout for something non-acnegenic, like Dr Brandt's Flaws No More Skin perfector, which was great but a bit too pricey.
Perfect! I used to use Lumene's Tinted Moisturizer, which was the only product of this kind amongst all drugstore brands. Have been looking for a substitute ever since they've discontinued it, and I've found something even better.
I'm always struggling in summer, wanting a bit of coverage and sun protection, but without the heavy feel of foundation, chalkiness of sunscreen and all that fuss with piling different products on in hot weather.
This is perfect. Evens out my skin tone beautifully (i'm using Light, which is far from being light, really), hides my large pores really well, protects from sun, is easily applied with just my fingers, and is very affordable.
The only downside to it is that it's too shiny on top of my oily skin, so i need to powder it lightly with translucent powder.
This product just wasn't what I was looking for in a BB cream. While its texture is nice enough, it doesn't mitigate the reddened areas on my face and the light to medium shade (lightest offered right now) is too dark an orangey for my NC 15 skintone.
That said, maybe you just get what you pay for here.
