Bought this on ebay as got really interessted in BB creams after reading about them and I gave it a try with the nr. 21 without really expecting to find the perfect colourmatch... but this works so great for me ^_^ The colour is like only a tiny tiny tiny bit to dark, so it doesnīt bother me at all, as I can blend it very good so itīs not visible.
If offers a good coverage, didnīt cause irritations on me, looks natural and lasts very long. I also like the floral fragrance, though I prefer the non-fragranced creams, but as itīs not yucky, I can live with it very well :) I also like the hygienic package aka the pump. And most of all: Iīm so happy with the high SPF (SPF 42 PA +++) because I have very fair skin and get a sunburn very fast.
Its a pity that they donīt offer a wider colour range for the tanned girls but Iīm so happy they do offer stuff for pale girls =) And yes, as soon as I run out of this, Iīm definitely going to repurchase this and try out some other products from Missha and Korean brands in generally.
EDIT: I purchased the #13 shade as Iīve seen they have this too and itīs lighter than the #21. This nuance is perfection for me. So to all of you "pale like a ghost"-ladies: if the #21 turns out to be too dark - try #13. <3

After recommended by a korean friend, I decided to give it a try. It is a bit thicker than most tinted moisturizer, and also they have limited shades. Thinking that No.21 will suit me since I am a NC20, but when applied on whole face, I looked pale. So, I decided to purchase No.23 but it looked darker and greyish on my face.Can see the difference compared to my neckline. Also, I noticed that it makes my cheeks itchy, and caused my chin and forehead breakouts...maybe the texture is too rich for my skin. But I decided to give it another try. This time, I apply No.23 on my nose only. Yup! Yes, on my nose, as I have bigger pores, blackheads and leftover pimples scars from puberty time, and I noticed that this darker shade is able to cover all these problems. Also only this area doesn't have any allergy reaction. HAA! Not that it is magic, but at least it makes my nose more presentable -looking. With loose powder MAC NC15 on top, it looks nearly flawless and it doesn't look dark surprisingly. Maybe the fact that I use a lighter shade of loose powder over it, it doesn't look dark and appear out of place. Before when I first used the product, I didn't go with any loose powder. For the rest of the face, I still use my Clinique Superfit foundation. I had tried the No.21 on my nose too, as it is a lighter shade, some of the deep scars still show through. Now I use this NO.21 in winter only when my skin is even fairer. Otherwise, I should say, I will finish the product and look for a better one. For those who has sensitive or combination/oily skin, try it first before buying as it might cause rash or breakouts.

I bought this bb cream in winter. I really wanted to like it for its coverage and sunscreen abilities but somehow I ended feeling heavy and cakey. (For reference, I have acne-prone skin with visible pores and some breakouts from my period.) I tried so many different uses but last week I found the best way.
My skin is oily but it feels dehydrated no matter how well I put moisturizer on. Last week, I read the glowing reviews about the Lavender Oil, and since I suffer from breakouts I decided to give it a go and it worked overnight! I blend it with 2 drops of hazelnut oil and massage it into my skin. In the morning my pimples were greatly reduced both in size and quantity, my scars were faded, my skin were more even toned and hydrated! A couple of days later, having a way better skin, I decided to use lavender oil with my Missha Perfect Cover, thinkin why not. I took 2 drops of lavender oil in my palm and blend it with my bb cream. It went on smoothly and evenly. After it dried a lil bit, my face was glowing, my pores looked way smaller and tighter, my makeup lasted longer! (I dust some powder on it, it looks flawless.) Plus, lavender oil prevents any breakout that Missha might lead - lavender oil has powerful healing and anti-inflammatory properties for healing the skin. Sorry for the long review but this really worked both for missha and healing my breakouts and scars. If you suffer from the same things, you should give a try, totally worth it! :)

I bought this product last October on Yesstyle.com. Missha is a South Korean based brand. You can say that it's the cheaper version of Bobbi Brown for Asia. Their products are AH-mazing. This BB cream was voted the best BB cream of 2009. My opinion is that it's fantastic! It's like a primer + foundation + concealer. You don't see any open pores and it doesn't make my skin oily. Your skin can breathe through it and it feels really natural. I bought it for 22.00 USD. They sell it for cheaper in some Korean beauty stores. the cheapest I've seen is probably 19 USD. The Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream also leaves your skin really nice and silky. it doesn't dry your skin up and it's not sticky. For the summers, I'd recommend the compact version. It's a bit pricier though..10 bucks more.
Pros: Inexpensive, Very light on skin, Not too thick, Covers some dark spots, Covers redness, Not drying, Silky finish, The bottle lasts long, Hides enlarged pores, SPF 42!!!
Cons: Sheer, Can get messy because of the pump, Melts off after sweating much, Doesn't come in a variety of shades/ colors.
Tip: If you're going out and it's summer, I recommend using a translucent powder on top of it so that it doesn't melt.

I really like the way this looks on my skin. It looks very natural and never cakey. It gives me that dewy look very nicely. It doesn't feel heavy on my skin either. BUT...i find after a couple of wearing this i get very intense itching. Idk its probably the fragrance in it. but its basically unusable for me. Its sad because i did like it.

I want to like this product, however the color is just horrible! I bought the darker shade #23 and it just didn't not match with my NC 25 skin tone.There is a gray cast, a very noticeable difference between my neck and face. Even after waiting 30 mins to let the color "sink " into my skin the color difference is still prevalent.Texture though is amazing, I like how smooth and light the product is.Great oil control and staying power. My skin doesn't feel heavy and the look is flawless.Over all, I would buy again if the color match better.I have even tried setting the product with a flesh tone powered. No matter how much I like this product I refuse to walk around with face skin different from my whole body.

What a wonderful product! This BB cream is extremely light and though it seems like it doesn't fit my skin when first applied, it adapts well to my skin tone. This BB cream makes my skin look SO much better and healthier. I've had no breakouts since I've started using this product. I bought this BB cream in natural beige. Unfortunately, as for price, it was very expensive because since Missha is a Korean brand, it was probably imported from Korea. I bought this product on Missha's US website (20 ml for $10), but it can be found cheaper on websites like Amazon (50 ml for $16).

Love this product!!! Mac NC 30 and I use no. 23 and it is like a magic touch that brightens my complexion

I was firstly introduced to this phenomena of 'BB creams' in 2008 by my Korean friends. The youtube videos of the before and after was drastic, and my blotchy uneven skin tone needed some help. So I went and got some for myself, and I've been using it for almost 2 years now!
I literally cannot leave the house without some BB cream on! (My skin tone is much even now, but EVERYBODY will benefit from a hint of BB cream.)
It has SPF 42 +++, so I apply it like a sunscreen, as well as a tint. The coverage is really natural so long as you don't over do it.
This is definitely a product that I will use forever literally.
Honestly everyone's skin will benefit with some BB cream. If you don't believe, try taking a before and after shot of the application. The results will be dramatic!

The worst thing ever!! I had clear, translucent skin with no pimples at all. I used this BB Cream twice and suddenly my face became a mine field!! HORRIBLE!! Still a month later, I can not get my skin back. I would never ever recommend this thing to anyone!! I am so upset that I followed the hype and purchased it.

I LOVE THIS STUFF!! HG! My boyfriend bought it for me while he was in Korea and I looovee this! I've been using it for two weeks and no weird skin reactions. I've always been one to be sensitive to high SPF products (and get small white bumps) and suprisingly, this product didn't do that. I don't normally wear much skin stuff except occasionally mineral makeup. I hated liquid foundations because it's hard to apply, feels heavy, and it's just a hassel. This product is soo good! I use less than a full pump (pea size) in #23 and covers my whole face. It's not extreme coverage but it's enough to make my skin look more even and not red. It also does not feel like I have makeup on at all!! While people complained about the grey cast (which I noticed the first time I used it), it somehow stopped showing that way on my face. Since it's summer now also, I've gotten a bit darker and #23 is too light for me. All I do now is add a bit of a mineral foundation that was too dark for me and mix it in with it before applying. Works like a charm! I can't believe how easy it is to apply and I will definitely get again and again!
Also, for those that are darker, they now also have color #31, which you can buy for $20 on Ebay :)

I bought this after reading rave reviews online and based on the recommendations by my East-Asian friends. I was initially impressed by the good coverage, high SPF, and built-in primer, which significantly cut down the time of my morning make up routine. After a week of using this daily, my skin is now quite possibly the worst it has ever been (for reference, I have acne prone/combination skin, I am of mixed Asian & Caucasian ethnicity and in my early 20s). I have several large, painful, and unsightly cystic zits all over my face, in areas I don't usually break out in. I'm now back to my Estee Lauder Double Wear to try and hide the damage.
For prospective buyers I suggest asking for some samples (at the department store the lady gave me only one little disposable packet worth to test and it worked fine so I unfortunately purchased 2 of the larger size) to see if it is compatible with your skin type.

I bought this from ebay a year ago since it's not available here in Ireland and I've just bought my second tube so it lasts a long time despite daily use. I paid roughly around Ģ10 for it each time which I think is reasonable.
I like how it has a high spf since I never think to use sunscreen unless I'm on holiday - there's never much sun where I live, but protection is still important.
The packaging annoyed me at first - why put a pump on a squeezy tube?! But I actually like it now, one pump is perfect for a whole face and the tube can be cut open to get the last remaining dregs out so none is wasted.
I heard a lot about how it smells before I bought this, apparently it smells like baby products. I personally can't smell this, but the scent isn't offensive and not too noticable anyway.
I have shade 21 which is greyish but on my pale skin blends out nicely and doesn't leave me a funny colour. I often use this under foundation on days when I need a lot of coverage, or just with concealer and my Mac msf natural in light. It gives very good coverage, by far superior to any tinted moisturiser. It also suposedly has 'skin lightening and blemish fighting properties' but I haven't seen any real effects of this after a year of constant usage. However, it doesn't break me out or irritate my skin in any way and it's a failsafe product for me, much nicer than foundation especially in summer and it moisturises well. I will continue to use this product for a foreseeable time.

I've been looking for the perfect foundation for awhile now, but I find that the selection in most drugstores favor those with pink undertones, rather than yellow undertones like us Asians. I've been hearing lots of good things about this BB cream, like the fact that it was made for patients who had undergone surgery, so from this point, I inferred that it had to be gentle even for the most sensitive skin and on the plus side, it had skin-whitening properties as well. The first time I layed hands on it, I just knew that it was right for me and it still is. It is probably one of the BEST foundations I have ever used. The consistency of it is just like a tinted moisturizer, but the coverage of it speaks otherwise! It is so easy to blend and it covers flaws like a dream. I barely need to touch up during the day and everyone keeps complimenting me on my skin! It makes your skin look absolutely flawless and I think that that is the most well kept secret in Asian society, but Missha BB cream just made it universally achievable for everyone!

I use Missha BB Cream in #31 in the summer when I am a bit tanner. (Around NC40) I love this stuff! The coverage is great, its super moisturizing and really helps improve your overall skin tone and quality. I will never go back to regular foundation. I'll probably try #23 once the fall/winter comes around and I'm NC35. I just hope that it isn't too light for me. The very limited shade variety is the only negative about this product, but its definitely a major problem when it comes to finding the perfect match.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
It's a good bb cream =) It really gives off a NATURAL look and has great OIL CONTROL. I wasn't oily at all after an entire day out with this thing!
I bought #23 and the colour was perfect on me. It has a yellow undertone to it, which is quite flattering in my opinion (I'm asian). However, this bb cream is THICK and you do feel like you're caked with it.
The COVERAGE is of course, really good because of its thickness. Don't expect it to hide freckles though. I find that it hides redness and "blueness" (around the eyes) quite well, but when it comes to dark spots like sunburns, freckles and old (acne) scars, neh.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
this is a great BB cream, i have No.21, which is great for my asian skin with yellow undertone.
i love it especially during summer when i don't like to wear foundation, plus this BB cream has spf 42. it softly covers the imperfections on my face without looking like a mask.
it's not oil-control, so i will use loose powder to set it, and i always have a compact powder and a kabuki brush with me, during the humid summer, when my face gets oily, after using the oil-absorbent paper (tissue paper will work too), i will brush some powder on my face. in this way, not only my face looks cleaner, but this also effectively prevents me from getting pimples which always pop up during himid season.
and it lasts a long time. i got it in a package, buy one (50ml) get one (15ml) free, and i have been using the 15ml tube for one month, still there, only a tiny little bit will work for the whole face. i think 15ml can lasts for a least 3 months.

I got cystic acne from this product BUT the coverage and texture is amazing :) very dreamy~ Doesn't do much for oil control though and I have combination skin. The colour range is not great and I doubt anyone darker than NC25 will be able to use this. There is however a new darker shade, No.31. I have not tried it and don't see the point of trying when it gave me breakouts. I can't get over the texture, coverage and the skin benefits though. I really wish it worked for me, but oh well... on with trying other new things :)

I really wanted to love this product. I bought this on Ebay from a very good seller after reading and watching Pink's review on youtube and blogspot.
I bought the shade No 31 Golden Beige. They also have No 21 and No 23, I think. The coverage is amazing! It truly hides all your blemishes. The color is weird though, it oxidizes to your skin. Basically, it applies like an NC37 and oxidizes to an NC40-NC42. It's a lightweight, creamy formula that smells like baby products. The smell might irritate you but I think it smells quite nice. :)
Unfortunately, this product gave me cystic acne! This is the only product that I introduced to my skin and there in no doubt that my cystic acne was the cause of this product.
Would I repurchase? No.
