It's a very good overall product. A few problem lies in the colour, as there is only two options and both are pretty light still, it has mineral oil, but I am not bothered by it and it doesn't last too long and I need to blot by lunch time
This is hands down the best BB cream I have used thus far. I have tried BRTC Jasmine water bb cream (quite good but it was far too pink for my skintone), Skinfood mushroom multicare bb cream (great color match and texture but broke me out slightly), Gowoonsesang brightening bb cream (another great product but color was too dark for me). I use it in #21 light beige which is perfect for my skintone (not too pink and not too yellow). They come in 2 shades, #21 and #23 with 21 being the lighter of the two. For reference I am about a NC15-20 and GA LSF 4 matches me perfectly. I do find that since using this bb cream, my occasional breakouts heals faster and the plus point is that so far I have not experienced any breakouts with this product. Also, this offers better coverage than a TM and lasts for quite a long time on the skin. It also contains an SPF42 with PA+++ so I don't have to wear a sunscreen underneath it. I just powder on top and I'm good to go! I usually wear it for about 8 hours and don't have to worry about touching up because it still looks good at the end of a long day. It is also really reasonably priced at RM 69.90 which works out to be about 12pounds for a 50ml pump tube. I will definitely repurchase this again when I run out.
Missha bb cream comes in a red pump package with 50ml, which will probably last you a while. I purchased No.23 from a korea-based ebay seller. Out of the BB creams that I have, I prefer this one over others, because of its high SPF of 45+ and medium coverage. I have combination NW30 skin and it's a near perfect match. There's also a lighter color (No.21), that I would say would match NW20 skin tones. I prefer it to Innisfree mineral skin bb cream although the ingredients are all natural because they are both very similar, but I find innisfree's product a bit harder to spread.
However, it's funny that I do not like using this BB cream on its own bc of its tendency to cake, and to highlight dry patches. I usually put three pumps of Missha bb cream in my hand and mix it with a dab of Missha bb boomer and BRTC perfect recovery bb cream for the best consistency (BRTC is a bit sheer). Haha weird I know.. I've been trying to find different ways of applying bb cream in order to make it more suitable for my skin.
Here's the methods that I came up with over time!
1) I tried applying the BB boomer, and then the BB cream, but it had more sheen than I would have liked and that's an extra step in the morning. On school days, I rushed out the door after the morning routine. :)
2) I tried applying BB cream with a sponge sprayed with Evian mineral spring mist, but find that it absorbs too much BB cream and uses the sponge up too quickly due to the prolonged moisture.
3) After moisturizer, I sprayed my face with evian mineral spring mist and dabbed on the bb cream mixture with my fingers. This is the most natural and dewy effect out of the other techniques. There's not as much coverage as before, but I usually go over with concealer.
4) I also tried mixing my bb cream mixture with a sunscreen milk, but I still prefer the effect technique #3 gives best haha.
Not a bad product! It provides superior coverage and super high SPF!!!! However, I have combo skin (horrible oily forehead and eyelids) so my face tends to get a bit shiny after 3-4 hours. Also, I found the dark NO. 23 shade is still a bit too dark for me. It's not very noticeable in natural lighting...but my face is very white in photographs (darn flash)!
I would recommend this product to people who wants a good coverage on their face with the least product... and have normal - dry skin.
I will not repurchase this product again....not because of the price (about $30 Can). It's because i don't need that much of a coverage and SPF.
p.s. works great as a concealer!
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!
