stayed away from this product because a lot of people was not impressed with this cream. a few weeks ago a friend of mine gave me one, since it is free i felt that there is no harm in trying. this cream was better that the foundation i was using, it lasted longer, did not cake on my face, does not feel heavy and did not aggravate my acne ( covers my acne quite well).it has a slight perfumy smell which i can tolerate.i already ordered a back up.
I'm shock at the negative reveal, more becuase I never got breakouts from it and I have combination acne skins.
I seriously think its their diets that's causing the problem.
Anyway back to the products:
This product so far in my list have the best perfect coverage, I can't find another that provides coverage better then this one, it is almost like a foundation itself. I've used the no.21 one and it feels like magic all day, I went swimming with it and it still stayed on all day, it does have that cakey look but if you don't contour your face you will have that sick patient look (no.21) Though its common for all BBCream. the majority makes you have a doll like skintone.
it fits perfectly for me and its cheap too, will definitely supports...the gold one also support antiwrinkle
ACNE prones BEWARE...I have read alot of reviews about this product breaking people out (just filter for the "low" ratings). I can tell you the culprit is Algae Extract which is highly comodogenic, seriously it's one of the worst offenders on the clogging scale. Unfortunately i didnt know this BB cream contained Algae Extract and I received a brand new tube today...I am SCARED to use it! Any suggestions for other uses? I dont want to put this stuff on my face now...
I've tried a few bb creams at this point, frustrated with foundation and looking to try something that can cover problem skin and not make things worse... all while looking like natural skin. It's a lot to ask, but this bb cream actually does everything I wanted a foundation to do. It matches my nc/nw15-20 (more neutral with pink overtones) skin very well, provides good coverage, doesn't look heavy or unnatural, and doesn't break me out. Most importantly, I'm not a greasy mess by the end of the night when I wear this. It has a moderate amount of oil control on its own and I manage to stay shine free for several hours. Worn with an oil controlling primer, l can finally stay shine free for 8+ hours. It even does a decent job of covering some of my pores! I use a concealer over this only on the worst of my old acne scars, and it covers everything else very well.
I see that some people are saying that this breaks them out, and I'd say to look up the ingredients and see if there's anything in this that you're sensitive to. I've had many problems with foundations breaking me out (especially drugstore foundations) and I have not had a breakout since I started using this a few months ago. Your mileage may vary, of course.
My preferred method of application is with a damp Sonia Kashuk makeup sponge (a Beauty Blender type sponge). 1 1/2 pumps will cover my entire face. I use this in shade 21, which is a neutral beigey color.
My parents brought me back a couple of these from Korea, and it was one of the first BB Creams I used. To my surprise, the "amazing" BB Cream that everyone was raving about seemed extremely thick and heavy for something that was supposed to benefit your skin. However, I was running low on foundation so I alternated and used BB Cream on certain days of the week. It performed very well in terms of coverage as it concealed all my imperfections. The color-tone (lightest, I believe 21) matched very well with my skin and pretty much made me look like I had flawless skin. I had received many compliments while using BB Cream, and the only thing I did not enjoy was that towards the evening (after applying in the morning) my skin would look REALLY shiny/oily, but perhaps that's because I didn't set it with powder, as I thought I didn't have to (BB Cream being a treatment, and not "foundation" after all).
Overall I enjoyed using it and I recommend it for those days when you can't go through the process of applying primer, concealer, foundation, etc.
It's a quick fix, and supposedly it's good for you, so if you can get your hands on it, I recommend trying it out.
This is not my first BB cream. I used Hanskin Premium BB after hearing so much about bb cream from the korean woman at the store I shop at. She sold me some and the stuff changed my life! My acne stopped, my skin tone evened out and my skin was so soft. So I saw the Missha Brand online and I had ran out of my other BB creams, and missha was the easiest to buy online, and it was sort of cheap ($20.) So I bouhgt the #23 shade and it matched really good. Im a little bit darker but I dont mind a lighter skin tone on my face as long as its not too wierd. I loved the packaging, so cute! The smell was bad, like old lady perfume I guess. But It covered my pimply yucky skin perfectly! It was very very good coverage! But after a few hours in the summer my skin felt so so so oily. And you cant touch anything by your face or it will smudge right off. Every time I hugged my boyfreind large smears of bb cream would end up on his black t-shirts. So, this stuff wasnt perfect, but I really wanted to like it. The indgredients looked so expensive and nice, I figured if I was getting acne, it had to be me. But after a few months of using this stuff, my skin is so bad. I want to cry every time I take my makeup off becuase it is so painfull and ugly to look at. And now I know its not me its this stupid Missha crap that ruined my skin and my self-esteem.
I was a loyal bb cream user for an entire year, I wouldnt even go to the makeup counter for my weekly splurge anymore becuase I love bb cream so much.
But I would rather dump drugstore foundations on my skin than EVER use this pore-clogging junk agian! (and i did becuase all I had was 2 bottles of missha and a bottle of almay left, and id rather put that on my face than missha....)
im using no 23, the natural shade for this BB cream. its a gud match for my NC25-NC30 skin. i was worried to get this product, because of other reviews that said it looks grayish pink. luckily this NO 23 is a good match for my skin.
this missha BB cream last all day on my oily skin, i just set it with MAC mineralise skin finish natural. My skin look flawless, i dont even need concealer, it cover my blemishes and scars.
But i think, i might need blotting paper if i use this BB cream on summer, because this product give dewy effect, that might be too much in summer cause my skin is going to be oilier.
update: after I tried the skin79 BB cream, I took one lippie off from this product. As, I find the skin 79 is better then this.
Okay, so I really really want to love this product but I don't think I can. It's convenient but it doesn't match my skintone, so I have to try hard to cover it up or use other products so that I don't look like a geisha (because it's lighter than my skintone).
I'm around Bourjois 10Hour Sleep Effect #73, Pupa Natural Silk #01, Bourjois Eclat Mineral Pressed Powder #04 Beige Medium, and around MAC NC30-35...
I have one in #23 Natural Beige and it's still slightly too light for me and my friends always tell me how they can tell that my face looks lighter than my neck, EW! And I thought I've already blended it or covered it with my other foundation or powders.
Or, I have to use a bit of the bb cream and mix it with my other foundation. So annoying though.
It's actually thicker than I expected, kind of hard to blend in somehow, and I think I have larger, more visible pores now, it's weird! I can cover these pores with the bb cream, but then again, wouldn't that just clogging the pores even more!? Oh!
It comes in a really nice, no fuss tube with a pump! and it has its own transparent cap that goes over the pump to protect it, prevent it from being pumped accidentally. and plus, because the cap has a flat top, you can store it upright on its cap. Easy!
But again, as much as I want to love this product, as it has the SPF42, moisturiser, and all these good skincare+makeup all in one concept, I can't use it everyday like I wanted to, or a lot of people seem to be able to. =( sadddd..
However, a lot of people love this product, and saying it doesn't really work for me doesn't mean it doesn't work for you.
When i first bought this product, it made my skin feel very smooth and natural looking. However, after using it continuously for a few days, my skin started to get dry spots and i started to develop little pimples on my forehead. After i stopped using the Missha BB cream and switched over to my other foundation, my skin began to look better. when i came back and used the Missha BB cream again, it created the same smooth and natural effect as when i first used it. If you're planning to use Missha BB cream, I suggest that you don't use it continuously and switch off with other products every few days or so.
Satin, almost dewey finish. Light to medium coverage.
You only need, literally, a drop of this stuff to spread all over your face. If you use too much, you might end up looking too greasy.
Since I have oily skin, I really need to set this foundation with powder all over my t-zone, and even my cheeks to keep it matte. Even then, my face will still end up looking shiny after a few hours. However, I love how you only need very little and it minimizes the appearance of my pores, so that's a plus.
Another thing about this is that it is only sold in two shades, so it doesn't match my skin tone perfectly.
I've been using this for about.... half a year and I'm not even half way through my tube. No huge improvement to my skin though.
