The first time I wore this BB cream I wasn't sold on it, but I've grown to love it. The color seems to be a really good match for me (for reference some foundations that match me well are MUFE HD 117 and Smashbox Studio Skin 1.2) I like the finish of it too. It definitely does not seem matte on me and I would say I have normal skin. Looking at it now, several hours after I applied it, it looks amazingly natural even though I applied it pretty heavily today.
I especially love the high SPF of this BB cream. I freckle easily in the sun, so any sun protection I can get is a plus for me. I probably wouldn't wear this at night because of the SPF and the fact that it would probably cause flashback in photos – I have other foundations I like a lot to use for that purpose. I think my contour powder and blush applied really well over it too.
I can't really say much for the skin benefits of it at this point, but it hasn't caused me any problems and I am quite acne prone.
I LOVE airless pump bottles because they really let you get the most product out without having to scrape the last bits out from the inside of the bottle. I like the bottle because it is fairly simple in design. It's not the most luxurious looking packaging, but as far as BB cream packaging goes, it's really nice.
You can get it for a very reasonable price, which makes it a good choice for everyday use. I would repurchase it.
The only other BB cream I own is the Pond's Luminous Finish BB cream, and I prefer this one. I think the color is slightly better for my skin tone and the Pond's has an unnecessarily strong scent, as well as a lower SPF.

I have combo skin; oily t-zone,normal on the rest but I have dry patches because of healing acne spots. The consistency is liquidy and it sets rather quickly so it's best to dot and blend one area of your face rather than dotting this bb cream all over the face. From the tube the shade has a strong yellow undertone but once I apply it to my face it turned grey. I'm pretty sure it's because of the physical sunscreen in the cream. But most of Asian bb cream are like that,you can fix it by dusting powder of your shade or a matte bronzer. Like I said I have dry patches and this bb cream clings to it and accentuates it even more no matter how much moisturizer I put on before hand. The coverage is low medium and I don't think it's build able because even after 2nd layer the coverage is the same. If you have an all over oily skin,you might like this but if you have dry skin stay away from this one and try the pink label one.

I love Skin 79 bb creams, but this is not the best. I love the higher spf, so I will save this for summer time, but it doesn't feel decadent and wonderful on my skin like the other ones. This sets rather quickly, so it is harder to blend. It is also more yellow than the pink and gold label formulas. I have yellow undertones, but a little too much of this and I look downright sallow. It's nothing that a good blending and a little blush can't fix, but I probably won't repurchase this. I'm going to try it with a primer next time, we'll see if that helps.

This is my favorite BB cream of all time. As much as I love Missha's Real Signature BB cream in #13, this is so much better. While the Missha cream is pale enough for me, it appears a little chalky and dry on my skin sometimes, especially in winter. This BB cream just dries nice and glowy and smooth on my skin. And it gets better throughout the day.
Normally I am always trying new fdtns and BB creams, but I have been totally monogamous with this BB cream. And um, when it comes to either boys or foundations, I am known for declaring my true love and then soon finding a new love. But this, I've been using religiously since I got it, for an unprecedented amount of time. I love the texture, the longevity, the finish, and the skin beneficial ingredients, but especially the shade match. When I read reviews from people that mentioned how pale and how yellow it was- and mostly these were complaints, which I can understand from anyone who has a different skin tone than I, since this really only works with very fair, yellow-toned skin. That's another thing, I treat this as a very moisturizing foundation with skin-care properties, rather than a BB cream in every sense of the word. I moisturize before applying this, and often use primer beforehand, instead of using this in place of all of those things. I have tried but honestly, in that instance it can be hard to blend. So I would say that I have a great love for this BB cream, but with certain caveats? It only works with the proper prep and with certain skin tones that match perfectly, otherwise it's too opaque.
I hope that helped! I love this but I don't think it's a universal product, if that makes any sense

I have the Skin79 VIP Gold, the Pink Label, and the Oriental; I received a sample of the Hot Pink when I purchased my Pink Label. Granted, this is not grey toned at all (very light - NC 10-15, with strong yellow tones). Compared to the other three mentioned above, this is very very thin in texture; think a watered down US BB cream. However, it is quite pigmented, as the coverage is not lighter than the other three. However, dry skin people be aware, this is very drying and will highlight all dry spots. I have combo skin, and this lasted about 3 hours before turning completely oil (formed dry patches, and slid off my nose). It also had a slight white cast.

Holy smokes this is a light-colored BB cream. It spreads very easily, better than the pink, and it has a yellow/white undertone to it. It looks like a yellow-based foundation mixed with white paint to me.
I am fair-skinned and although I've never been matched at MAC, I would assume that I'm not darker than a NC15-20 and this is too light for me. It's also very cold here now and I'm drier than normal, and I feel like it shows my dry skin and doesn't hydrate enough.
Love the SPF and the ingredients, covered decently but unfortunately not for me. I appreciate the smaller options to try them out. The packaging is great.

I wanted to be able to use this BB cream so badly.
I previously had used the Bright Pink version of this cream, finding it's coverage quite nice for a BB cream (I'd say around medium coverage), and it's formula actually brightening my PIH, but the colour was just too grey. So I heard that this would be better for those who found the bright pink made them look ashy.
Unfortunately, the colour with this one just swings too far in the other direction for true neutrals like me: It's WAY too yellow. It's even more noticeable than the grey of the other one. I wish I could wear either of these because they do make my skin look better...when I'm not wearing them.
On the plus side: If you have golden-warm tones and pale skin and are looking for medium coverage, you should definitely give this a try, it would probably work great for you.

Really liking this BB for the weekends when I use a higher SPF and am out in the sun. The color is absolutely perfect for my NW10-15 skin and it doesn't dry me out. Really nice for lazy days when I don't feel like waiting for my regular separate ss to sink in, too.
The coverage is a bit high for me, but then again, I can skip concealer, so as far as saving time goes this stuff is the best. It's replaced the pink version for me in summer - as winter approaches, though, I'm thinking I may switch back to gold for my Skin79 days, just to get that extra moisture. Or maybe I'll just slap on a heavier cream the night before so I can keep skipping concealer and sleep in that extra minute in the morning :D

This is the very first bb cream i've tried and I loved it ! I've been using this bb cream since winter of last year and it's perfect. It has enough spf to keep my skin from burning or darkening. It doesn't make my face look oily either. The cons about this bb cream is that I noticed when i'm having a bad skin day, it showed the imperfections on my face a lot more. I don't think the whitening properties are that great either. This bb cream is definitely my winter color. It takes about an hour to feel like you're wearing nothing but you'd still have great coverage! Also, like most bb creams, a little goes a long way! I still haven't run out of mine~
