After reading all the hype from Asia (now also in the US and Europe) about BB Creams I had to try some for myself. I had a look around and decided on the Skin79 Super+ BB Cream Hot Pink, which is a Korean brand (BB cream slowly started branching out from Korea to Japan, China, Singapore, and other parts of Asia thus creating a very hot trend).
The premise of BB creams is that they can be primer, sunscreen, foundation, acne medication, wrinkle treatment, pore minimizer, and skin whitening product all in one (or in several different combinations).
Now, I know some of you may not like the whitening part of the BB Cream, but actually what they mean by whitening is that it helps to even out your skin tone. And there are also many big internationally brands that have followed the trend of BB creams and made some without whitening. Though a lot of them tend to act more like tinted moisturizers and not a BB cream. Click here to read more about the difference of BB creams and tinted moisturizers.
At first the product has a kind of pale beige (almost grey-ish) colour but it melts into your skin fast and the longer you leave it on your skin it seems to oxidise to a colour that is very natural. I think that it would only work well for pale to medium skin tones.
It goes on very natural and does a great job to even out the skin tone and smoothing over enlarged pores and fine lines. It even worked well at covering my dark circles and the best thing is that it looks like you have nothing on, it’s just like your own skin.
I’ve really started to love this product, it feels light on my skin and it really looks like I have nothing on at all, just natural even toned skin (See the picture above).
Would I buy it again? Yes!
Would I recommend it? Yes!
