Recently there is this bb cream craze all over asia, and I got sucked into it as well. so far I tried 4 of them and can't wait to try others. I saw kimoko's blog and she got like more than 30+ of bb creams. hehe the bb cream Queen.
From left to right: #1 Missha M Vita bb cream, #2 Skin79 Derma RX bb cream, #3 Skinfood Aloe Sun SPF20 bb cream(shade 2), #4 Skinfood Green Gingko (shade 1). I think i will review these four products and hope my review can help you choose which one you want to buy or would suit your skin.
Sensitive, combination/oily, easily blocked pores and some pimples and scars.
Missha M Vita bb cream Spf 20 (8/10)
Its consistency is like tinted moisturizer, not as thick as liquid foundation. pretty easy to blend. and if you use more than one layer of it on your face, you won't look cakey or flakey unless you have REALLY dry skin and got too much dead skin. but you can see from the photo that the colour is greyish pinkish. so if you are really white and pale and with a hint of yellow i think you should avoid this one. When i use it, after about 15-20 min it settles down and blends really well with my skin so looks all natural. It's coverage is light to medium, can cover some light scars. It's oil control ability is nothing to talk about, gets oily after 3-4 hours and need to blot every now and then unless you use blotting powder or silk powder from EDM then you will be fine. Does give a dewy healthy look but no glowing effect. It's surpose to be good for dry skin, so if you have combination/normal skin I recommend you try this one as well. I religeously used it for a week and a bit, it does improve my skin condition, and the pimple scars and redness are fading quickly. and didn't cause any break outs so i'm happy. It did what it promised.
Skin79 Derma RX bb cream Spf 15 (7.5/10)
Its consistency is thick, definately thicker than Missha M vita. similar to a liquid foundation so it takes a bit more time to blend and apply to face. And this one you can see in the picture it's darker and got more of a grey tone to it. when I applied it, it did look greyish but it's coverage is medium better than Missha M Vita. but if you apply more than one layer or more than you actually need, it tends to look cakey and unatural. It's oil control ability is better than Missha though does get oily at the end of the day. I use it for a week also, to be honest it didn't really do any thing for me. It surpose to whiten and help with the blemishes. It did whiten a little bit may be, but i will had a few pimples, may be it was too thick and clogged up my pores. not too sure. but i want to try other bb creams form skin79.
Skinfood Aloe Sun Spf 20 bb cream (6.5/10)
I heard alot of good review for this bb cream so i decided to try it. Its consistency is similar to Missha may be a little bit thicker but definately not as thick as skin79 derma RX. It's really easy to blend and apply but. I got this one in shade 2, it's a tad too pink for me, some girl said if you mix shade 1 and 2 you can get a natural tone. It has a light-medium coverage, but it does look pinky on me. it's oil control ability is better than both skin79 and missha so there goes a tick. But some how i think it's breaking me out a bit. getting blocked pores and little little bumps.. um... >_<>
Skinfood Green Gingko bb cream (7.5/10)
This bb cream is a bit different to the aloe one, this one gives a more dewy healthy look. but some oily skin people might find it a bit too oily. It doesn't have spf therefore a sunscreen is needed when you go out from the house. Its consistency is about the same as the aloe one, but i got this one in shade 1, from the photo it's a bit more lighter and yellower which sort of blends into my skin better than the aloe one. Though, it's coverage is pretty light, doesn't cover up most of my scars or pimples. this bb cream hydrates the skin like the Missha M vita, but do need to blot quite often. I use silk dust from EDM over the application so i'm fine with that. can't really tell the long term effects yet. but so far no breaks outs and little bumps. so all good
I'm waiting to try Missha M Perfect Cover spf 42+++ bb cream. heard a lot good review about it.
