Since my discovery of BB Cream, I’ve tried a number of them: Hanskin, Skin79 (Intense Classic), Skin79 Hot Pink Super Plus, Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream (in both #23 and #27).
Today, I received a delivery from Missha.ca (I was super excited). I was able to participate in a promotion (that’s valid until May 8th, 2013, incidentally). The promotion was to buy 1 bb cream, and get the identical one for free…you can check it out on missha.ca.
Anyways, back to the BB Cream. After using the BB cream, I have a tube of Perfect Cover #23, I will say that it has surpassed the Skin79 Intense Classic on my list of favourites. The Perfect Cover Formulation seems to stay matte for longer than the Skin79. I like the #23, but it did seem a bit light on me, which I corrected with the use of bronzer.
The Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream has a lovely consistency. It comes out of the tube through a pump (please see pic), and blends easily. You don’t have to use much product and it blends easily using your fingers. This BB cream is one of the only asian ones on the market that comes in a variety of colours (and by “variety” I mean 5 – #13, #21, #23, #27, #31). The coverage is pretty good, I would describe it as “medium”. I would describe Armani Foundation as being full coverage (to give you a benchmark, noting that the Armani Foundation is silicone based). This BB cream, is neither watery or gel-like in texture, and claims to lighten skin tone, smoothing visible wrinkles and blemishes, reduce the appearance of aging through brightening and anti-wrinkle effect. (I’m not totally clear on the claims). However, I will say, that since I started using BB Cream, I’ve received compliments about the condition of my skin.
As for the Missha.ca Website, for about $63 + tax or $71-ish, I received 4 x full size Missha Perfect Cover BB Creams and 1 gel eyeliner, with a free brush. (It’s totally a steal, normally the BB cream is about $24 for 1 tube). What will I do with so many? I’m going to gift some to my sister(s) and mom. In addition to what I ordered, they threw in a Red Ginseng Sheet mask, a bar or soap and some samples of moisturizer and boomer (which I understand to be a primer-like product).
