i'm giving this product a mixec review. only because i feel it's a very harsh product on my skin, when i used it. i have combination type skin and thought this is perfect as a wash... about a week after using it, i noticed my face has some sort of reaction. bumps started to appear. a few days after that, i got really red and the bumps were all over my face. it was horribly itchy and my skin really dried up like crazy. my fault for not noticing earlier, but anyway - this product is not ideal for everyday use if you don't have severe acne. i would only use it 2 to 3x a week. on the upside, my brother - who has sever acne, uses it everyday and has helped in speedily clearing up his acne. i fixed up my bumps by using dr jart v7, my face cleared up and back to normal after 2 days. i cant wait to add my review on that one.
review update. i last posted about this bb cream march 30 2011. it's now been 3 months since. i have medium/tan skin tone. im LOVING it. i have combination skin. oily on the t-zone and dry on the cheeks. my pores tend to get visible when the sebum gets out. yuck. i am very prone to acne (t-zone area mostly) and very wary of products on my skin. i tried brtc jasmine ONCE and never again after the breakouts happened almost immediately. missha made my face SO oily you could practically see the whiteheads on my nose. super gross! anyway, finally got skin79 3 months ago and it's been wonderful. just placed another order for this on ebay (check rubyrubyshop). big note: make sure you cleanse and moisturize before putting the bb cream as well as wash the bb cream off before going to bed! i used to pack on the foundation/powder and concealers. nowadays, it's just bb cream, touch of concealer and a dab of powder to even out the skintone. SO VERY LIGHT and i can really feel my skin breathing like im not even wearing any make-up on! it's been hassle free and wonderful! a big rec to those who have the same skin type as myself.
i have the missha perfect cover #23 and this is my first ever bb cream. i've been using this for almost 3 weeks now. so far, i'm loving this bb cream. the shade is just right for my skin tone (im in between olive-medium and tan during summer). i usually apply powder on top to set it and to match perfectly without having a white-ish cast on my face. i also find that moisturizing before the bb cream gets applied really helps with the coverage (plus, more good stuff for the skin yes?) im from toronto and if you're looking for a place it get it, i bought mine at galleria supermarket at yonge and steeles. they have a beauty shop where the food court is called Debbie. they also offer a membership card to get 5% off your purchase. highly recommended.(they also have dr. jart products available in the store) it cost me $25 (tax in) for a 50 ML size. looking through ebay, it costs $10-ish for the 30 ML. it's a pretty good price to pay for the size and convenience. to conclude, the missha perfect cover bb cream has done wonders to my skin. i usually have breakouts on my chin, temples and near my cheekbones. with normal foundation + powder application - i get really oily on my t zone by lunchtime and usually have to blot or re-apply. since i work long hours (10-11 hrs per day) i haven't had that "oily" feeling at all with missha bb cream on. no breakouts in the past 3 weeks. i went to have a heart attack burger a week ago and the usual breakout has not shown up. the only 1% downside to the 99% awesomeness is the smell. but that's just me. the scent reminds me of johnson and johnson's baby lotion. it's not overly strong - i just prefer unscented because i get easily annoyed with scents. it's not a big thing, just preference. it wont stop me from using this particular bb cream though. i've placed an order for skin79 hot pink - reviews say it's good for combination/dry skin. we'll see how it compares to missha.. =)
