I've used this product for about a year and I really wished I hadn't. The first time I purchased this was during the winter and because the bb cream was super moisturizing, I loved how it made my face glow during the winter and my face really did look flawless! I fell in love with this product and couldn't get enough of it. Even when I was sick, this bb cream made me look like I wasn't even ill at all. After I finished using my first tube, I purchased another tube of Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in shade 23 and because I had to wait about 2 weeks for my package to arrive, I had to go back to my mineral makeup foundation. However, when I looked in the mirror, I didn't realize how horrible and scary my skin turned out to be!!! I was so scared and have NEVER seen my face this dead! I had horrible horrible skin discoloration and I started having really bad dark circles! I swear my skin used to be flawless and I had breakouts all over my T-zone and my cheeks and it was horrible. I wanted to cry and it was just really bad. I think the discoloration on my face was because of the skin whitening extract that was in this bb cream. Anyway, when I received my BB cream in 2 weeks, I immediately tossed it away. I din't want to resell it to people. I thought this product was horrible after a while use of it. Now I definately can't go out of the house without wearing make up and I absolutely hate it! I look like a zombie and it saddens me. Now, I have to use concealer on practically my whole face cos it's so bad!! I now have acne scars and brown patches on my face and dark circles...*sigh*...it's really bad. It's been almost a year since I've used this Missha PC BB cream and my skin has healed probably 10% only. I still have discolorations on my face, acne scars and my dark circles are now permanent! And I know it's not due to lack of sleep cos I get plenty of sleep and I drink a lot of water! I will absolutely NEVER purchase this product ever again! *sigh*...However, I missed the flawless coverage it gave me... *sad*...but hate this product!!!
I don't really like the smell, it sorta smells like baby powder of sorts.
I've used the skinfood aloe sun bb cream and Missha definitely provided more coverage than that one. I think with a few layers on it could pass as a foundation.
I think its an okay product, but I'm not crazy about it. I guess because it doesn't really look as natural as I would like it to be. Kinda looks matte/powdery, but it doesn't dry out your face. I haven't noticed any whitening or wrinkle repair or whatever. I guess like most foundation is you wipe your mouth with a napkin, you will see it on the napkin.
The bottom line is.. its an okay bb cream not the best, and not the worst.
Actually I change my mind I do like this BB cream it is awesome! I do find it takes a while to oxidize to your skin color and if you apply it on a little too thickly, it won't oxidize at all. My favorite thing about Missha Perfect cover is the coverage it provides--not yet full coverage but almost, it makes my skin even and awesome looking. I do think it does not look 100% natural, it still will look like you have SOME makeup on but it's not as much foundation. Also it does tend to fade throughout the day so after it oxidizes you can powder it with your choice of powder. It doesn't control any oils so you will be greasy throughout the day. As far as improving your skin, I realllllyyyyyy think that's a bunch of BS, use this for coverage not for its "skin care properties".
i really REALLY love this product! it gives me great coverage, and stays on all day! Its basically my all in one, wen im getting ready in the morning im always in a rush, and this bbcream works as a concealer for me as well as a foundation. The price also isnt too bad. I bought this about 2months ago and theres still lots left! It def doesnt dry out my skin, nor does it break me out. basically my holy grail <3
As a precursor to this review, Kiehl's tinted moisturiser is currently my HG so I am definitely comparing this to that. At first I really liked this because it offered more coverage than the Kiehl's and I found myself topping up a couple of areas that needed extra coverage with this...however I think the coverage is quite heavy and when I wear a little of this on top of my Kiehl's, it is noticable that I am wearing more makeup. Then the colour match is a bit dark/grey for me. Finally I had a sneaking suspicion that this was making me break out more and after reading some of the other reviews that this contains mineral oil - I think the culprit has been found. If you don't have sensitive break-out prone skin, you might like it but for me, this is going in the bin.
I first encountered Missha's BB cream, when I was in Seoul visiting family. Looking through my cousin's make up counter I found this BB cream. I absolutely love it! It's light weight and just enough coverage. I usually put it on if I'm running out the door. You can use it as a primer; the SPF's high enough that you don't need to wear an extra sun block. I sometimes mix it with liquid foundation, if I need extra coverage.
It's cheap too. It also lasts pretty long. My most recent tube lasted me about 8 months or so.
broke me out badly. but im also using other new moisturizer so not sure for 100% but pretty sure its the bb cream because moisturizer haven't really broken me out. i gave 2 stars because coverage was good.
I have NC15-20 skin. No 21 was a little bit too dark, but No 13 was a perfect match.
This didn't make me break out and covered almost everything. I have redness and acne scars, and usually need to pat a little more product with a sponge in those areas. Occasionally I'll need to break out the concealer, but most days it's not necessary.
This has a matte finish, perfect for normal to oily skin. It can accentuate flakey spots, but if you use a sponge, you can really minimize the flakiness. It gives a beautiful porcelain finish to the skin and makes it look very nice. My mom noticed instantly that my skin looked really good!
I recommend using a sponge to pat it in, especially if you tend to get flakey or cakey.
There is a slight old-lady/powdery scent, but it quickly disappears.
My HG foundation. No kidding. I love love love it! It's so light on my skin, yet covers really well. A little goes a long way. After toner and moisturizer, I slap this on and finish of with powder. Totally inlove with it. :)
I re-purchased the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in #21 Light Beige because it has good coverage, great oil control and it matches my skin tone perfectly as if I do not use any product on my face.
Missha has a new bb in #27 Honey Beige and I'd like to say that it is WONDERFUL!! Color is very golden and perfect for those with yellow-olive undertones around NC 25-30. I've been hunting for the perfect shade korean bb for a long time, bc I do NOT like american versions so far, and this is by far the best. If you dont like american bb creams and you're sick & tired of korean bb creams making you look like a ghost, Missha's #27 will be the answer to your problem!
Also, Etude House discontinued their V-line products.
I ordered both #31 Golden Beige and #23. I'm NC32 in MAC and #23 ended up being too light. It gave off a slight pinkish cast which made my neck and face different shades. I tried #31 and it's a LOT tanner than I thought it was gonna be, but definitely closer to my skintone than #23. #31 also has a pinkish cast. Overall, the quality is okay. Coverage is good (too much will make it look cakey imo). Smell is okay (like baby powder). I have dry skin that also is prone to break out (usually people with oily skin are prone to break outs), but this hasn't affected my skin since I used it the past couple weeks.
The #31 is the darkest bb cream on the market, so I will recommend it to those who are NC 35-40 (some darker skintones will hide the pinkish cast on lighter skintones), but not for anyone who is NC30 or lighter. For those that are like me (see my photos) and inbetween NC 30-35, try Etude House's Top 10 v Line BB Cream. It's a more tanned look with very golden/yellow undertones and works wonderfully with dry or acne-prone skin...AND it's cheaper! See my review on it.
I'll use up the Missha #31 while I have it, or give it away to a friend w/ darker skin. But when I go out, the Etude House tanning is definitely my bb cream choice.
