This stuff is worth the buy if you are pale. Like, really pale. It only comes in ONE SHADE, and is made overseas. People in Asia really adore fair skin, and their cosmetics are perfected to fit the shades of pale people. On the other hand, America perfects cosmetics for tan people, so this buy for me was great. It's unlike any other BB Cream, it's an actual BB Cream (not a knockoff tinted moisturizer!!) It leaves my skin hydrated and glowing. No redness with this product, my skin looks porcelain and pretty!! One of the best makeup purchases and I'll continue to buy in the future!

I first purchased this product about a year ago in the form of samples for next to nothing (Around $2.50 for three samples) off eBay. The samples were very small, but I used the cream under my eyes, on my nose and to cover up any blemishes and found they lasted for months!
The SPF 30+ has been perfectly suited for daily use, on top of my Neutrogena SPF 15+ moisturiser, and the tint matched my pale skin very well. I usually find it difficult to seek out foundations and tinted products that suit my skin tone, but I was very pleased with this.
This being said, I would definitely recommend using this product with a trusted moisturiser and/primer to aid the longevity of the BB Cream, because I found that when I applied it directly to my clean skin, it does dry it out a little during the day and seemed to not last as long.
I haven't broken out as a result of the product, which I usually find with foundations, and it isn't particularly oily, though it does do a good job at keeping my skin moisturised.
I have finished the samples and have purchased a 35g bottle of the product, and I am pretty sure I will keep using it in the future. :)

It does say this is for sensitive and dry skin, so...
Nobody has mentioned any of the other advertised effects, just talked about coverage, moisturization, and etc... like any other bb cream review, I suppose...
This is supposed to provide spf, brightening, and antiwrinkling effects...
I had this on for about 8 hours, and at about four hours in, I noticed the skin above my upper lip tightening every time I smiled, which I thought was really strange, but thought it would go away once I took the bb cream off.
I didn't realize what it did until I took the bb cream off after 8 hours with it on, and noticed that when I smiled, one side of my face had a deep smile wrinkle, and the other side only had a small one near my lips. I didn't know what was going on, since I had always had these smile lines, until I remembered that the bb cream supposedly had anti-wrinkle properties.
I found when brushing my teeth that the smile line on the diminished side hadn't disappeared, but superbly diminished, and looking at myself while brushing my teeth was soo strange, because one side had this deeep smile line (in comparison to the other), while the other had a barely perceptible one.
This unevenness is probably because I had a small breakout on one side of my nose, and had applied much more bb cream to cover it up... I think my skin tone was fine on the other side, so I didn't apply much to it.
I need to apply more to the other side of my face tomorrow to make my face symmetrical again.
THIS IS SO INTERESTING.

I've tried my fair share of BB creams before and none of them really wowed me. This one has to be my favorite out of all of the ones I've tried. I wear it in the winter when my skin turns extremely dehydrated and finicky. I love how it locks in moisture without turning me greasy or shiny throughout the day. The color is a decent match for my NC25-ish skin albeit a tad light. Does not feel cakey or mask-like which is a huge plus in my book. Coverage is on the more sheer side, but that's ok because I don't like full coverage anything. I like to have a bit of my natural skin peeking through.
Overall, very pleased with this product and will repurchase for the winter months.

The color is perfect for my fair skin and blends well. I don't think the scent is too strong- it's nice. Has decent coverage. The only thing is that it doesn't last a long time. It looks GREAT when you first apply it, but it doesn't stay that way for more than a few hours for me.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Neutral Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Black
I would prefer applying this BB cream with the sponge, it blended well into the face than doing it with the fingers.
The coverage of the BB cream is okay, but if you are having big red pimples and deep dark circles on that very day. You will need to conceal it.
It leaves a clear hydrated look on the face after applying it, but at the end of the day, it looks different. The face look oily and fade (fade – not sure of the correct word to use. It looks like you got yourself caught in the rain).
I do not really like the jasmine smell, as I find it abit too strong. I also find it hard to remove even using the makeup remover wipes and makeup remover cleanser. I can feel the BB cream is still there after using these and washing the face with facial wash. It does make me breakup the next day but not much, most of the time is on the forehead.
I will not be purchasing it again.

My face broke out everywhere after using this. When you first apply it on your face, it looks and feels great. By the end of the day, my face was covered with small white, flaky patches and looked completely unnatural. By the next day, my face had small red splotches everywhere. I have used several other BB creams from Korea and never had this reaction!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Green
- Nice Jasmine fragrance which isn't too overpowering.
- Colour is a decent match for my skin. I'm a neutral NC20 and expected this to be much paler, considering how white some reviewers said it is...but it blends into my skintone well, leaving it looking brighter but not ghastly pale. I think it's pretty neutral leaning slightly pink.
- Expensive, especially considering the bottle seems only about 1/4 full when you buy it!
- Lasting power is not great. I notice it seems to have faded after a couple of hours. Strange seeing as all my other BB creams and foundations stay on all day even without powder.
- Coverage isn't good. I have decent skin (not really any breakouts but uneven skintone and some redness)...it hardly evens out my skintone and redness still shows through even with two layers.
- I have dry skin. This BB cream highlights flakes and makes my skin look rather dry even when I've moisturized well. Not a hydrating formula for me at all and certainly doesn't leave a dewy finish...very matte on me.
- Claims to have SPF 30 but doesn't have a PA rating like all other Asian BB creams do, which makes me suspect that it isn't good broadspectrum protection.

After a few months (from mid winter and all of spring) of using this, and trying other brands of BB cream, I think I know enough to write this review. It looks ok when first applied, however, I don't know how they do it, but after a few hours of wearing this the oily parts of my skin look oilier, and the dry parts look drier. Coverage is light to medium, the jasmine scent is lovely. But because of the facts that it makes combo skin look "more combo" while other BB creams I've tried didn't, and the price is not cheap either, I'll definitely not repurchase.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Curly, Coarse Eyes: Brown
This product is advertised as providing both moisture replenishment and oil control.. I need moisture, not oil control, but I didn't find this very moisturising at all. It highlighted dry patches pretty bad and made my skin look flaky and dry. This does have a nice whitening/brightening effect if you are into that, but it almost looked a little pasty on me. The smell is really nice, I love jasmine tea! The finish is slightly sticky, but a lot of BB creams and foundations are like that. It is easier to blend then some other BB creams, such as the BRTC gold caviar. Lasting power was decent, not amazing. I can't speak for oil control at all as I have really dry skin. I didn't really like the product but I didn't hate it either, it isn't bad. It might work better on someone else who has less dry skin. I ended up giving it to my sister however she found it quite drying too. If you have dry skin I recommend the gold caviar one instead.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I really tried to like this product. However, it just didn't look good at the end of the day.
-On application the product is good, brightens up your skin tone alot
-Very good coverage
-Very unatural powdery matte look, at the end of the day it looks like you have random specs of power all over your face, like you are wearing grainy cake
-White/grey undertone which oxidises at the end of the day
-Can be a bit drying.
I really tried to like the product but from application it was just all downhill from there.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
I hate this stuff because it kept breaking me out.
It also won't stay put for more than an hour. However, this could be due to my oily and acne-prone skin. Still, I was so disappointed because this product received raves nearly everywhere.

I obtained several sample packets of this BB cream via eBay intending to purchase the full size if these sample packets worked out for me. I love that this BB cream is comfortably moisturizing when applied. It also has good broad-spectrum sun protection so I can skip on the extra step of applying a separate sun block. The staying power of this BB cream is also impressive; without powder, this will stick for 6 hours, and with powder this will last me 8–9 hours, a blot or two in between on both occasions.
While the staying power, SPF, and moisturizing factors are note-worthy of this BB cream, for me personally it did not work out for two reasons. This BB cream unfortunately only comes in one shade intended for fair skin tones with pink/cool to neutral undertones. If you have tried Missha's M Perfect Cover BB Cream, this is probably similar to shade No.21. I have light-medium skin in the neutral/yellow undertone, so the BRTC BB made me look sick and ghostly if I wore it by itself without blush or bronzer. Additionally, the finish is rather on the dewy side, which I could tone down easily with a matte powder but ideally I would like to minimize my makeup routine. The dewy finish on my already combo-oily skin was not needed.
I really wanted to love this BB cream but the single shade and dewy finish made me look sick and a little sweaty, so I will not be purchasing the full product anymore. However, I do recommend this for those who have fair, cool-undertone, and dry skin who could use a healthy, dewy glow. This BB comes in a 35g tube for roughly US$20, and a 60g tube for roughly US$30 so it's a little steep for a BB cream but the skin care benefits are good as far as I'm concerned; I just wish that the skin tone and types could have been broader.

This is one of my top three bb creams after having tried a dozen or so. I love the light jasmine scent and the beautiful finish. My only gripe with this is having to use powder to set it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Cool Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
I love this BB cream. I love its texture that gives my skin smooth yet moisturized look. I also love its pale pinkish color, suitable for my skin tone. It is very similar to Etude House Sheer Silky Skin but it feels more nutritive for the skin, so I will definitely buy it in full size. At first it feels like it is not blendable enough because of its creamy texture, but once you get used to it other types of BB creams feel slightly cheap on your face (too thin and not nutritive, just like ordinary foundations). Coverage is great and it lasts all day long. Even if you are travelling etc. it doesn't leave a greasy layer on your skin. Although intended for dry skin, it is suitable for combination/oily skin as well although T-zone may need blotting in that case.

Love this product and at first I didn't think it would be good for my combo skin but luckily I was wrong. I bought samples at first and wasn't interested in trying it till my sister was like please get me this stuff I love it. She is not into beauty products so for her to be excited made me say let me try this. Well here are my opinions on it:
-Skin stays soft and matte all day I was shocked about that.
-I have not broken out nor has my sister i actually notice them drying as does she. She has perfect skin too where as I do not.
-a little goes a long way and it smells really good.
-blue complex it's amazing read their site about it. It's pretty amazing skin science with nature.
-All I needed was to set with powder and my skin looks pretty:)
~Pale girls will love this because it doesn't turn you orange and it looks natural
-great blemish and hyperpigmentation cover. I am impressed;}
-I didn't even use moisturizer because this went on and feels so good. That i think helps us combo/oily girls
-One of the more pricy BB creams but worth it to me.
-Only comes in the super pale shade though the caviar will work for NC-20 and up.
-might be too moisturizing for oily skin though I have not had this problem.
-some can break out due to the natural process of the blue complex but once your done breaking out they dry them. This is just my opinion because I have acne but it's under control and have no breakouts.
So in the end I do recommend at least to get a sample it's a really good BB Cream to me and it feels good on your skin because you feel like it's just your skin. I <3 that. To conclude it's a good product that's definitely worth a go!

I bought this product in samples because I did not want to spend too much money and not be satisfied. I was glad that I did. While this BB cream looked great, and left me with minimal oiliness, it clogged my pores. After every day of wearing it by the end of the day I would have 5-10 small, barely noticeable whiteheads and blemishes. I'm sure if I used this every day consecutively I would have pretty bad acne. This is the first time that my skin has ever reacted badly with a product, so I was very disappointed. I had really wanted to love this BB cream.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
This is easily one of my favorite BB creams. It's also one of the few that matches my skin tone well without the white cast some other creams have. Most of the others I've tried made me look very pale, but this one is a perfect match for me - for reference, I'm NC15. It also lasts for hours even in humid weather, and controls shine better than most of the other creams I've tried.
The only thing I'd change is the amount of product in the tube. When I opened it for the first time it felt like it was only half full. It's also more expensive, but I feel it's worth paying a little extra for a great color match and a formula that works for my skin type.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Coverage is good. Thick and do not need to apply too much. 1 Tube can use very long. Bit oily, but still acceptable.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I almost can't believe it. A face makeup that doesn't turn me orange, flake all over my skin, or look like a mask.
Ok, I'm sold.
As with any bb cream, it's always a mystery what will come out of the tube, since these products are labeled in other languages and are manufactured in Asian countries.
I got out my foundation brush and got to work. No orange tint, good coverage, and moisturizing! Best of all, I still had my natural looking blue white vampire skin looking back at me.
The drag queens call the process of setting foundation as "cooking". This stuff needs to cook. The setting process for this BB cream really does take longer, and it's impressive to see how it oxidizes over 10 minutes. The coverage is light, but it still manages to cover imperfections, while letting your natural skin tone come through. I have applied it with both my fingers and a brush, and either way works.
There's only been a few times when I've had to use concealer with this bb balm. Otherwise, my erase paste is sitting in a drawer.
At the factory they must have forgotten to add the jasmine scent to my tube, because it has no scent that I can detect. Maybe my next tube will be different. In any case, I recommend this to any acne prone pale girls - but take that with a grain of salt, of course. Foundation is always a crap shoot.
Decent SPF in this one - it's deflected the Texas sun - that's impressive!
