I do like this bb cream. Its a bit bright and a bit to moist for me. You most likely will need a setting powder. It will crease around the eyes, but then again most foundations/bb's do that. However, it works great for my swedish winters = dry + pale. Plan to mix it with a darker foundation for summer and crossing my fingers it'll work :) Good coverage, doesn't break me out, long lasting.

I mean, it doesn't break the bank. I used Dior skin nude before this (which i adored but is expensive) so I'm very happy with this transition.

I've tried some BB creams in the past, since I was looking for some medium, not-too-heavy everyday coverage. I must say that this one is my favourite.

Being quite fair skinned with a slight yellow undertone, this matches my skintone really well (a lot of european/american bb creams have a slight orange tint, while the asian brands carry those with pink/yellow undertones). My skin is mixed - a bit oily on the forehead and chin, prone to dryness on the nose, and normal elsewhere, so I don't really have any serious issues with it (some blackheads in the nose area, a couple of zits here and there in that time of the month, which i cover with concealer, but that's about it). I usually set it with some powder, and on a normal day, this would last me somewhere around 6 hours.

+ it has SPF in it
+ offers great coverage, considering it's a BB cream
+ great for those with yellow undertone
+doesn't look cakey

All in all, it works really great for what it is - a BB cream. I don't expect it to cover up everything, it's not a heavy duty foundation or a concealer, but it does even out my skintone, covers redness and makes my skin look fresh. I bought mine on eBay and would recommend it!

I have oily, acne-prone, eczema-ridden skin with rosacea. My usual go-to is Estee Lauder Double Wear or Dior's Forever Flawless foundation, but I decided to try this product since I didn't have an allergic reaction to their snail cream and this seemed like a decent brand.

[ PROS ]
- Great coverage that hides my redness and acne scarring
- Easy to apply
- Tube packaging makes it easy to travel with

[ CONS ]
- Settles into fine lines (my mother hates it because it settles into all her wrinkles regardless of which primer or powder is used)
- Broke me out every single time
- Color selection is incredibly limited and was very light for my NC 20-25 skin
- Did not last very long on my oily skin even with a powder on top

All-in-all, I probably would've repurchased this BB cream had it not broken me out time and time again. If you have normal skin though, perhaps give it a go :).

I've seen mixed reviews on here for this BB cream, and I have to say that I love it. I've been using it for 10 months now and it's great. I have very pale, oily skin and it definitely reduces my redness and evens out it tone. I have to use a mattifying powder with it, but that's not a big issue for me. I've even noticed that my blemished have cleared up from this cream. There is definitely something to that snail slime! ;)

this is so far the only BB cream (or tainted moisturiser) that would overly whiten my face. The tone is just nice for me with a healthy glow. However, as some has mentioned, it can only last a few hours and is not water resistant. So if you would be outdoors the whole day with scorching sun light or heavy wind, try something else or at least have a sunblock with high SPF

I've tried 5 different Korean bb creams and 3 western brands bb creams all have its pros and cons. What I like about this bb cream is it has yellow undertone not pink because of this it works great to neutralize my red post acne spots also this bb cream doesn't give me gray cast. One thing I notice this bb cream never oxidized on me and I have oily/combo skin. The coverage is light to medium at the most. It last around 5-6 hours. It does have semi dewy finish but you can always set it with powder to give it a matte look. My only cons about this bb cream is because I have lots of dry flaky healing acne spots and no matter how much moisturizer I put on those spots this bb cream will cling and accentuate them even more and with this reason I will not repurchase. If you dont have this problem i say give this bb cream a try. I bought this online for $11.

Age: 19-24   Skin: Very Dry, Fair-Medium   Hair: Black, Wavy, Medium   Eyes: Black    

SKIN-DATA: Dry/dehydrated, sensitive, clog-prone, and scar-prone. Asian living on the West coast of Canada, so fairly dry climate and major wind chap all the time. 20-25 years old.

It's a run of a mill BB cream; that is, it's not so fantastic that I'll run out the doors and shout on the top of my lungs to share with the world nor horrible. Very meh, just another BB cream. Like all other BB creams that promise you the world of healing, this one didn't do much in terms of keeping its promises either.

- good medium coverage (based on its coverage of rosacea on my cheeks, acne required concealor)
- glided on easily and blendable
- Mineral oil free and SPF32, snail extract, Q10, arbutin, sodium hyaluronate
- colour matched my skin tone (yellow based neutral, NC-20 during summer)

This is a good daytime BB cream that can take you through lunch and still be on after a bit of shopping. But if you're planning to take this to the clubs? You might want a lot of setting powder and bring this tube to reapply. (It has no staying power if you are going to sweat on the dance floor).

It's overall a decent BB cream that isn't irritating however, the fact that CYCLOPENTASILOXANE is it's third ingredient makes this a miss for me. That derivative of silicone is one my worse clog-nemy!! If it wasn't for the silicone issue, I would repurchase.
