Skin79 Super Plus BB Cream (Pink Label)

A BB cream is a blemish balm, blemish base, or beblesh balm, which supposedly helps to improve skin conditions while wearing it as a makeup. Skin79 is one of the popular brands of BB cream in Korea and here's my review on it.

The Skin79 BB Cream looks so adorable in it's pink container, no messes too with its vacuum pump.

One pump is enough to cover my entire face. Texture wise, the cream is lightweight and spreads easily. It starts out looking greyish and oxidises to match my skin tone to give me dewy looking skin. Coverage is about medium, it hides pores and evens out skin tone but pimples can still be seen. :( Do not layer the BB cream but use a concealer for imperfections, otherwise, you may end up with a super greasy and sticky face.

The cream is touted to have sebum control properties but that doesn't seem to have much effect on me. By lunch time, I will need to touchup on the makeup.

Though there are reviewers who said that the BB cream causes them to breakout, my skin is still pretty accepting of this product. Just remember to treat it as a makeup rather than skincare and use a makeup remover to get rid of it.

Skin79 Super Plus BB Cream (Pink Label) retails at Watsons stores for S$36.90 but I got mine at a steal of $15 from Gmarket. Yes, it's the real deal; not an imitation. The nice seller even threw in samples of other products.
