I'd always been hesitant to wear any sort of face makeup. When I was younger, I would watch my mum apply foundation, and not only did I not understand how to match my skin tone, but it always looked so thick. It looked like putting paint on your face. Before trying BB Cream, I had started using foundation, and perhaps I was using the wrong one, but it did feel thick and uncomfortable. Not only that, but it dried out my skin, even if I used moisturiser first. So I began the search for something better and came across BB Cream. I did a lot of research to find the right product for me, and now that I've found it, I'm never going back to anything else! I've even gotten my mum into using it. She loves it and uses it every day.
Blemish Balm, also called BB Cream, is known to have been formulated as an after-treatment cream to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery to soothe and regenerate the skin.
The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.
Whitening + Anti-Wrinkle + UV Protection (SPF 42 PA+++)
Just wearing the BB Cream. I really like how it adds moisture, but doesn't make my skin look oily. It just looks natural.
Thin and smooth. Not watery and not sticky. It goes on smoothly and doesn't just sit on the skin in a thick layer.
Very light coverage, but consistent. It doesn't cover every imperfection completely, but it does even and lighten blemishes making them not as noticeable.
Scent forgot to add this!
There is a very light scent, but it's not overpowering. Fragrance is listed closer to the bottom of the ingredients list, so there isn't very much fragrance in the formula. The scent goes away after application.
It has SPF 42 PA+++ and it moisturises your skin. It also has anti-wrinkle properties, just like other BB Creams.
For this cream I give it an 8/10. I would like it even more if it had a little bit more coverage, but I think in that case I would sacrifice texture, and it's perfect the way it is.
I can't compare this BB Cream to other creams. I've never actually used any others. There was one I started to try, I believe it is called Skinny Fit. It was so sticky and thick, I only got it on one cheek before I had to wipe it off. It felt like I was starting to put a mask on my face.
I have some samples for other BB Creams, so I'll give them a try. I've got an Etude House sample that I'm dying to try!
Do you use BB Cream? What kind do you use? My skin is sensitive and temperamental sometimes, so I think I will always come back to Missha, but I would love to try some others! Especially those recommended by readers and fellow bloggers! After all, it's better than just randomly picking something. Recommend me some?
