I got a sample of this in the mail so I decided to give it a go this morning. In a nutshell: Worst BB cream I've ever tried. It's absolutely awful, especially if your skin isn't perfect. This emphasized my large pores and scars from acne and chicken pox and made them look far far worse. I looked like I had huge craters in my face. Suffice it to say, I threw the rest of the sample out. Yuck.

Ok, I had a terrible accident that burned my face with 1st and 2nd degree burns...even after it looked somewhat heeled, it was very sensitive, and left me unable to wear makeup or my regular BB cream that I love....I had received a sample of this from Sephora, and decided to give it a try....it did not irritate or burn like other stuff.....so off to Sephora I went to purchase it, and I have to say I absolutely love it....time will tell if I like it better than the Missha......all I can say, is it is nice not to have to look at my reddened areas on my face, and to look natural at the same time. It is a bit pricey, but for now, it is way worth it.

I'm an Asian girl who has very oily skin (to the point where my forehead and my cheekbones look slick) and I am acne prone so I decided to purchase Bosica BB cream because it is oil-free. Overall it matches my skin tone when blended in but the formula itself is not matte enough to cover the shine. So I use mineral powder to touch up on the shiny areas and I become perfectly matte (however I do need to touch up within 3 hrs).
Overall the feel of it is nice it's not too sticky and it feels very natural on my skin. Coverage of acne marks and dark sports are fairly decent. I would purchase this again just for the sake of covering up my dark spots and acne and for the fact that it didn't cause me to break out. Except I noticed that people purchased ones with SPF... mine doesn't...wonder why...perhaps in Canada Sephora just doesn't receive ones with SPF?

I use this as primer. I got a deluxe sample from Sephora and it is lasting forever. It is supposed to be self-adjusting to your skin tone, but it adjusts a little darker than my skin. It's noticeable where my neck looks lighter than my face. However, I think my face is in fact darker than my neck, because whenever someone at Sephora or a makeup counter tries to foundation match me, they ALWAYS pick a shade that is too dark, and I have to spend 10 minutes explaining/insisting I want my foundation to match my neck before they will give in and find the right shade for me.
I use this as as primer/SPF protection under my Hourglass Immaculate foundation in the summer and under Nars Sheer Glow or Givenchy Photo Perfexion in the winter.
-- I have very breakout prone skin and this does NOT break me out
-- matte finish
-- 27 PA++ spf. PA++ is not as great as +++, but still, it's decent enough broad spectrum protection for staying indoors all day.
-- It is a little darker than my neck/face and I think it gets a little darker as the day goes on.
Update: I replaced this with the Kiehl's BB as primer under the Immaculate fndn, because the Kiehl's preps the skin better for the craziness of the Hourglass (if you don't moisturize VERY well underneath the Immaculate, it will emphasize pores, lines, dry patches and just look hideous). Kiehl's also has a higher SPF. I still think the Boscia BB is fine for lazy weekends when you want to quickly put something with SPF on your face before running unexciting errands. I will find ways to use this up since it contains SPF and does not break me out, but it's highly unlikely I will repurchase since there are other products I like a lot more.

I purchased this in the light version and found that it was still too dark for my porcelain skin. Furthermore, application was difficult because I found that I needed to really layer it in order to hide my acne/acne scars. After application, I found that it made my skin look ruddy and after a few hours coverage disappeared. Although I consider myself to have combination/normal skin, I found this to be very drying and therefore exacerbating any fine lines on the face. Other reviewers have commented on the glitter effect that this foundation has, and I would have to wholeheartedly agree. When the sales associate at Sephora applied a sample of this on my face, I didn't really notice how sparkly it was. Wearing it out in natural light/non fluorescent lighting tells a different story (disco). One of the major drawbacks that I found with this BB cream was that it made me not only break out, but it also irritated already present acne. I think this is due in part to how drying it was to my skin.

I got 2 samples of this and I actually really like it. I usually only use Asian one's because they have a lot more skin care benefits but this works very well for me. You do have to blend really well and the hands do work best for this Cream. I dislike using my hands but baby wipes help. At first I was worried it would be too dark but when blended well it worked for my NW15-20 skin tone. It lasts very well on my skin with or without primer. It stays a demi matte on my combo skin and controls oil very well. It doesn't oxidize on me like crazy and stays put till you wash it off. This is one of the few Western besides Lumene that I would purchase. I liked this a lot enough to buy it but not for now. I have so many Asian one's that I love to finish but as far as Western BB Creams go I like it and recommend it!

I've been experimenting with bb creams for about 2 years now. Purchased a sample sized tube from Amazon out of curiosity. I love it! At first it took me a while to blend it properly. Tried a flat foundation brush and a blender sponge. Best results I got were from rubbing it together with my fingers to warm it then apply in small circular motions with my fingers, worked like a charm. I'm an nc 30 and it blended perfectly to my skin tone. I love how it helps conceal redness around my nose and actually help soothe my breakouts while covering them. I did use Mac concealer over a dark age spot on my cheek. My skin had a nice luminous finish without being too shiny or too matte. I set it with mineral veil. Will most definitely purchase a full sized tube. Hope this review was helpful. :)

I actually got a sample of this product from a birchbox and decided to purchase the full size. People who complain about oranginess may have not have blended the product in enough, and yes there are subtle and sparse flecks of shimmer but they are not noticeable and if anything contribute to a glowy looking complexion. I liked the texture (feels almost like rubbing water on your face-- which I quite like) and the light coverage. Perfect for summer when you want spf.. AND it didn't break me out. When I blend it in to my skin (I apply with my fingers) I have no problems with orange or grayness and if anything it melts into my light yellowish beige complexion with a dappling of freckles across my nose and cheeks without looking fake, cakey, dry or covering up my freckles. The only thing it did nothing for was my oily T zone.

I got a sample of this when I purchased an eyeliner from Sephora. I was never a huge fan of BB Creams since they tend to make me oily pretty fast. I've tried brands from Smashbox to Revlon and they all give me the same result. But since it was a sample, why not right? I have the universal shade and it's the perfect match for my NC 25 skin. It's not orange or too pink. At first when I applied it with my fingers, it was slippery and it took a little more effort to blend, but once blended, it was beautiful! I have uneven skin tone, a little bit of redness around the nose area, and some acne scars and this evened out my skin as well as cover up the redness and acne scars. This isn't full coverage; more like light to medium. I could still see my skin peeking through and it looked extremely natural. Of course I could still see some of my acne scars peeking through but a little concealer should do the trick. It wasn't dewy but it wasn't completely matte. I didn't see any sparkles like the others have. I did powder my T-Zone since it gets extremely oily. I was pleasantly surprised, it lasted for about 6 hours before I saw a little bit of a breakdown. Other than that, it was fine. I would recommend this for anyone who doesn't need a lot to cover up.

I LOVE BB creams but this one just doesn't do it for me. It's quite orangey when I'm very fair so I only wear it during the summer. I love the SPF in it but the coverage isn't enough. It does even out my skin tone quite well though. Not the worst but not the best.
