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 :(
I'm an NC20 with neutral tones and use the shade #21 which is a pretty good match for my skin. It doesn't leave a grey cast and doesn't come off pink on me. I have tried shade #23 but it was very pink and grey, leaving my skin looking dull. #21 brightens my skin and after about 20 minutes matches my skintone very well.
I have dry skin and this BB cream leaves a bit of a dewy finish on me. Despite that, it doesn't get oily or greasy on me throughout the day, even when I don't set with a powder. It remains looking glowy all day and still looks good after 8+ hours of wear. I never have to touch-up or reapply. The lasting power is really great for me.
Coverage is light-medium depending on how I apply. I don't need lots of coverage as my only real problem is uneven skintone, and I like to use 1 pump for my face. My skin and freckles still show through but I look very polished. It doesn't look cakey or heavy on me. A lot of people actually don't even know I'm wearing face makeup with this on.
Other things I like are the SPF of 45+++, the hygienic pump packaging, the affordability. I don't like how strong it smells. This is my favourite BB cream (and I have tried many, mainly Korean and some Japanese ones too) and I won't hesitate to repurchase.
Wanted to love this so badly. Loved the coverage, and I got a good match by mixing #21 and #27. #21 was a free gift with purchase. The deal breaker for me was that I got big, painful pimples when I used it. When I discontinued, the breakouts stopped.
Jumped on the bandwagon yet again! I purchased based on soooo many youtubers raving about this product. I am 46 with pale, dry skin. My hopes were for this to even out my skintone (slight areas of hyperpigmentation) as well as providing a natural finish. I have yet to find anything that can provide a natural, dewey finish on my skin. This was no exception :(. The color is strange (#21). A light, yellowy grayish tone. I don't take issue with the color however. Somehow it works on my skin tone. What I do have a problem with is how thick and powdery it is! My first grade teacher in 1970 was the queen of "foundation/powder mask". This is what my skin looks lioke wearing Perfect Cover!!! I look like I've used about 5 pumps of the most heavy duty 70's Max Factor cake makeup on my face!!!! I use one pump of Missha and apply with either a beauty blender or my fingers. One of the appeals of a BB Cream is the high SPF...yeah, if I am using 1/2 of a pea sized amount I am getting very, very minimal sun protection!!! I won't toss this, but this doesn't live up to the hype AT ALL for somewhat older, drier skin. The search continues!
I got this as a gift for christmas. it scared me at first because it had a gray hue, but it oxidized in a few minutes and matched my skin tone. Good for when I want to look natural and don't want a full foundation coverage. I like how it has a pump, and the lotion-esq design. Won't repurchase because I'd rather have a bare face than a light coverage, but it's still a good product.
- decent shade selection
- good hygienic packaging
- don't like the way it feels on my skin. was hoping for a cream, but it feel like a rather thick/heavy foundation. This was my first bb cream, so i can't say if it was better or worse than other creams
- caused breakouts :-(
I had love hate relationship with this bb cream. Till i realized that i was getting a fake one, twice from ebay and different sellers, I tried this 4years ago, sample size and i loved it. So i decided to buy the full size. But the full size i bought made my skin itchy, like i wanna wash my face right away. The smell is too strong, and gave me small red bumps the next day. I rested my skin and tried few times but same thing happened. So i thew away and moved on to other bb creams. My hg bb cream was legere multi white for 4 yrs till they repackaged and maybe reformulated. I didnt get the same result anymore so i had to find another bb cream. I remembered that i liked this missha crm and good thing, there is a Missha store now in my country. So i bought the small size #21 and i liked it. Not strong smell, glowy skin, but think its too dark for me. I bought from ebay seller again, i dont know why i was that stupid and i got the same red bumps, strong smell and remembered my experience years back. So i went back to Missha store and bought #13 instead and fell in love with it. I was comparing the ones i bought from Missha store and the one i got from ebay. Confirmed, the one i got from ebay is a fake. So please, do yourself a favor and buy it from Missha store only. I had the best experience with the jars i bought from them. The people here who gave low ratings review mustve bought the fake ones. Buy from Missha store and try it why its still the most loved bb cream up to now. HG bb cream. NOTE: Fake Missha perfect cover has a very very strong smell, they causes red bumps or zits, sometimes make skin itchy.
