My sister gave me a tube of this and so far it's been nice. It has a light liquid texture that blends smoothly. It's yellow based which is perfect for those that have yellow undertones. Seems to have decent lasting coverage I look the same at the end of work as when I went in. I love the fact that my pores look invisible and can layer heavier if needed. It's portable which I like for touch-ups. It also has whitening, anti-wrinkle, and SPF 42. So those are pretty nice bonuses. However, the scent reminds me of baby powder which I'm not a big fan of so that's off putting to me.
i dont find anything wrong with this product. it covers up all the blemishes and imperfections nicely and blends in well
maybe the problem with everyone breaking out is that it isn't washed off properly? i use cleansing oil to get the residue off
and i personally really like the smell :D
Will not be repurchasing. Made me SLICK. I can only wear this on my cheeks and avoid putting this on my tzone. This product felt like i was applying oil to my face. It also oxidizes throughout the day and gets far too dark. I recommend this for those with dry skin. I am only continuing to use it because I don't want to waste money.
Since I'm Asian, I just had to follow the BB cream hype ~
Bought this at a Korean shop for $35AUD in No.23.
It came in a pump dispenser tube with a cap so that was nice and hygienic. The coverage was good because it covered all the redness and my little scars nicely. Texture is creamy and blendable. Lasting power does deter but a little touch ups here and there wasn't really a problem. I also like the fact that it has a high SPF since it's always sunny in Australia.
What I didn't like about this BB cream was that it had horrible oil control (my T-zone was like an oil slick after 15minutes and my skin is normal/combination) and the grey tint it has when applied, so you have to put extra foundation and what not over it.
Since it gave me enough coverage and the claims about all the benefits it had were pretty good, I continued using this but then I realized I started getting little bumps (whiteheads and zits) around the areas I use my bb cream - yes I don't use it all over my face, just in areas where I need coverage. I discontinued using this and the bumps started disappearing. I'd rather not have more scars & bumps than use this.
Wouldn't buy this again, but I might move on to other bb creams in hopes of better results.
This BB Cream served great as a tinted moisturizer - it evened out my skin tone fairly well. I have a lot of post acne discoloration, and to not have to use foundation over this BB Cream is a miracle for me! =) So that's a plus..
HOWEVER! This product broke my out horrendously! I usually get no more than a few pimples a week, and ever since using this product, I broke out all along my jawline, chin, and forehead area. I NEVER got pimples on my jawline, so I was completely horrified! And there were many small, irritating whiteheads forming all over my chin area (and I don't usually get much there!). I also started getting pimples on the apples of my cheeks.. and again, I NEVER get pimples there! My usual break out areas are around the nose. This product seemed to have reverse the effect - while I no longer broke out in the nose area, my chin, forehead, cheeks, and jawlines were exploding with all different kinds of acne - cystic pimples, whiteheads, and just regular pimples.. you name it.
So all in all, I would definitely NOT repurchase this product again. Although it gave good coverage, it broke me out - and honestly, I would much prefer LESS pimples than just better coverage! I only gave it an average rating instead of a 1 or 2 because as a tinted moisturizer, it did its job to cover and conceal.. but still. Major downside!
I have this in No.23 with SPF 42. I love it. You have to use a moisturizer with it (I use Clean and Clear Morning Glow with SPF 15) because sometimes it flakes on me. Reasons is I apply after I've washed my face and its been cold lately so dry skin but that is my problem not the product.
Its light weight, stays on, blends tremendously well! :) Don't need a lot at all and I've been using the same bottle (30ml) since September of last year.
I do have acne and sometimes in newly scarred areas the cream does make it dry but thats why moisturizer is always a must.
Oh, did I mention? It has a very nice smell to it!
I bought this BB cream in Korea with many other bb creams, I wanted to see what the hype is about! I really liked this bb cream! The color match is the best for me (no 21) and coverage is really good with this one! Oil control is also good, especially when I set it with powder, it stays on nicely the whole day.
now I stopped using it, since my skin is now very dry and this bb cream is too powdery for dry skin in cold winter and leaves powdery residue around the winges of my nose :/ but for normal/mized skin, and in summer (high sun filter) it should be great!
(Now I use the silver missha bb cream, and I love it!)
this bb cream not suitable for acne skin..
and i already used this bb cream, and really make me broken out. i not recommend this bb cream for acne skin for sure! dont waste ur money.
After using a sample, I absolutely had to try out the real product! I was a bit too overzealous and jumped straight to the 50 ml bottle. So far I love how the bb cream provides great coverage, blending in very naturally. Liquid foundations usually make my skin look dry, but the Missha Perfect Cover stays on all day flawlessly.
I'm looking out for break outs though because of some of the reviews I've read about the product.
I loved this product at first because of the coverage, but I started noticing random cystic pimples after using it for about two weeks.
UPDATE 4/6/2010: I'm going to have to change my rating from 5 to 3 lippies.
For my daughter, this BB cream is definitely a 5 lippies product, because it really makes her skin clear up whenever it becomes irritated. From one day to the next she can go from having a few pimples to soft, smooth and even skin, I'm not kidding! It also seems to heal any marks very fast. She refuses to use anything else, and this BB cream has actually improved her skin so much that she doesn't have to wear it very often!
For me however, this BB cream is sadly a MINUS 5 lippies. I used it for three weeks and it resulted in the worst breakout of cystic acne I've ever experienced. My skin became red, dry, flaky and with seventeen (17) huge cysts on my cheeks, my jawline, around my nose... It was horrible, horrible, horrible. There must be something in this cream that my skin is sensitive to, because I took great care in washing it off at night.
The same thing happened to me last summer when I tried it for the first time. After a week or so I started breaking out, but at that point I blamed the Dr. Hauschka skincare regimen that I had started just the week before. I quit Dr. Hauschka AND the BB cream, went back to my regular skincare products (Weleda) and my mineral foundations (BE, Alima and EDM) and my skin cleared up. Well, this time I know for certain that it was the BB cream that caused my breakout, because I didn't use Dr. Hauschka's skincare this time. In fact, ironically, it's been Dr. H's Rose Cream that has helped my skin heal from this massive breakout! Now a month later my skin is smooth again, no cysts, and the marks are practically gone, something I wouldn't have thought possible a month ago when I looked in the mirror. The Rose Cream has been a miracle for healing my skin.
I suppose this BB cream suits young, acne-prone skin better than mine, which is dry, sensitive and fragile with broken capillaries. Still, I give it 3 lippies because it works incredibly well for my daughter.
