This BB cream sounds like a perfect magic cream that will make ALL your skin problems go away!! For me, this BB cream causes more damage to my skin than anything else I have used!! The ingredients are GREAT for people with normal, dry, or aging skin, but NOT for oily and/or acne prone skin. The first 2 days my skin looked fine but after using it for one week, it DESTROYED my skin. My pores were clogged with white bumps all over my T-zones and VERY large inflammatory cystic acne around my chin. I stopped using it and was determined to find out WHY this BB cream exacerbated my acne so badly!! This BB cream contains Codium Tomentosium Extract (seaweed extract), Ecklonia Cava Extract (a type of brown algae), and Gelidum Cartilagineum Extract (red algae). I read online blogs and scientific articles about comedogenic ingredients. Algae extracts are ranked as one of the most comedogenic ingredient. This explains why I always get severe acne outbreaks whenever I use BB cream (I used Skin 79 pink label, Missa, Dr. Jart, etc)!! Most of the BB creams are very Thick and contain algae extract or many comedogenic ingredients (like Isopropyl Palmitate, Isopropyl Myristate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Myristal Myristate, Laureth-4). I know there are many excellent reviews about this BB cream. This review is more helpful for people with very sensitive and easily clogged acne prone skin. My conclusion for this BB cream is --> STAY AWAY from this BB cream (and ALL other BB creams that contain algae extract) if you have ACNE ISSUES!!
