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.

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:The Positives-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 girlsNegatives:-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.

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.

Coverage is good. Thick and do not need to apply too much. 1 Tube can use very long. Bit oily, but still acceptable.

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!

Second BB cream I've tried, aside from Missha's Perfect Cover in #13. I ordered them both as they seemed to be the two lightest shades I could find. I have very pale skin (lighter than NC 15) and was really hoping that this would be my go-to, but it seems that on my very neutral pale complexion (i.e. no pink undertones! Just pale as paper) it comes out looking strangely darker than my neck/body with almost a pink/grey putty-colored hue. It's a shame because I love the scent and the coverage, which is fuller than Missha's and allows me to wear less concealer. Unfortunately, Jasmine Water is very moisturizing and can make someone whose skin already "glows" look like their skin is oily even after they've just washed it. What's worse is that my skin DOES eventually get very oily, so it requires touching up with a little powder often. However, my mom who has dry skin tried this and loved it, and it didn't make her look oily at all. Odd. I'm keeping this as a backup, because despite my harsh description, it doesn't look bad-- just a tiny bit off.

i was doing my research for a good bb cream before and this based on my research is the best.. so i ordered online since its not available in my country but it took 7 weeks and still i havent got my item.. i was able to try other bb creams while i wait for my order before they figure out to send me samples.. im so excited to try their product..ive tried it and unfortunately im disappointed.. the first day ive used it i had a skin breakout.. good coverage but feels heavy on skin... and it makes my skin look oily... another problem is that its too light for my skin.. even though ive waited for 5-10 mins for the cream oxidize to match my skin tone still its too light.. i believe this will work for fair skin toned people but not good on asian skin...
