BB Cream !

Today I am super excited because I have been dying to let you all in on this amazing product. I recently just learned about BB cream while browsing the Internet and one of the You Tube videos I watched featured this item. Now I definitely was intrigued because it was like anything I have ever used before.

Love the Finish

Now let me fill you in on some History I found on it:

HISTORY: Invented in 2007 based on German laser skin treatment R&D technology, Skin 79 launched the 1st BB cream cosmetic product in the market. Korean celebrities including Song Hye Kyo is amongst the first to use it. It later gained exponential popularity due to its excellent results and more than a million of BB cream products were sold in Korea that year itself. Today, BB cream are being manufactured by many other popular Korean cosmetic brands as well including BRTC, Dr. Jart+, Hanskin, Skin79, Etude, Missha, Skinfood and Liole. It is currently the hottest cosmetic product in Asia and the most popular cosmetic product used by Korean celebrities.


BB CREAM = Base + Foundation + Concealer + (Natural Makeup) + Sunblock + Moisturiser + Oil Control + Healing Properties (Skin Regeneration, Pore Tightening, Skin Toning) + Optional Feature (Anti-Wrinkle/Brightening/Whitening)



EFFECT OF BB CREAM:
INSTANTLY AFTER YOU APPLY: 
It provides coverage  just like a foundation by covering up all acne, pores, marks, lines and uneven skin colour spots BUT without clogging the pores/damaging the skin. Instead, it helps tighten pores and improve the skin condition.

AFTER 1 MONTH OF CONTINUOUS USE:
After continuously using it for a month of you, it will leave you with better skin complexion (much smoother, softer and refined skin).

How this works is that every time you use it, it acts as a protective layer which controls excess oil and at the same time giving it enough moisture it to make very healthy. It also protects against all harmful UV rays and environmental damage so that your skin will stay healthy. Plus with its special healing properties derived from its natural ingredients (such as White Hazel, Aloe & Caviar extract) which promotes skin regeneration and pore tightening, the end result after using it for 1 month of more is a much smoother, softer and refined skin that will make your face complexion gorgeous!





General BB Cream Characteristics:




 
• Provides coverage just like a foundation but without clogging pores/damaging the skin
• Natural no makeup look
• Conceals all types of pigmentation, discoloration, acne and marks
• Perfect coverage without clogging pores

If you think it’s impossible for there to be such an awesome cosmetic product, just walk in to any cosmetic counter in Korea and ask them. Almost all girls in Korea not only knows it but loves it!
 
 
Ok Ladies so Sounds great so far right? I got this info from a site I had been reading up on for a bit.

So what I have gathered so far it is A Blemish Balm. Not quite sure what Beblesh is but I guess they were trying to say Blemish? Ha Ha. They all say this on it!
I also understand that there are a few Ebay sellers that carry this and other online stores. However a lot of what I learned is that there are many Knock Offs of this Item as well because it is so popular.
One of the ways I learned to Spot a Fake was on the Back of the Box some have the website Skin79 printed on the back . It is not Suppose to have the website on it :
No website on the back of the Box. Also I have read that on Fake ones the instructions are in Chinese and are suppose to be in English.
It should also have this Authenticity label on it.
Refer here so you can see for yourself directly from Skin79
There are soooo Many different types of BB cream to fit your needs and range in prices also.
There are plenty of sites with images of knockoffs and plenty of videos explaining how to spot a Fake. So do your research Ladies!
Pros:
Smell is very pleasant not Overwhelming
Has consistency of a Tinted Moisturizer
Blendable
Little goes a looong Way
Great for Fair Complexions
Cons:
Limited Shades for those of us that are anywhere from NC35 or Higher
Doesn’t do much for concealing for me as it claims.
Can’t use as a foundation right now because it is too light
Ok now for the Fun Stuff:
After Blending
 Slight Grayish Cast and still too light for me.
My Solution :
 Mix with my Benefit You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer
Much Better! After setting with a Powder Out the Door I go.
So here I am just straight BB cream and Tinted Moisturizer Nothing Else Daring I know LOL:
Closer
After Some Blush and Bronzer:



Loving this new Lipstick I got BTW ha ha  I know off topic but def in my April Faves!
I purchased this item on Amazon for around $14 with shipping and took about a week and a half from Korea which I thought was not bad at all!
 
So far I am loving this and makes my skin feel great. I did find that they Make one in a Shade Darker but it is sold out everywhere but I am trying to get it so I can review as well and do not have to mix any more.
 
Will be doing another review over the weekend on some other Asian Items I got and there websites also. 
So sit tight and will see you guys soon!

    Hey Pretty Girls!!!!
    if you find any gray/silver cast..its because of the SPF in it! Anyone who wants to stay clear of SPF, stay clear from the BB creams. I love them though.I hope you find one that you really like.After years of being a makeup artist. The rule stands true. There are no rules to makeup, only rules of thumb. Nothing called “too anything”.I disagree with telling anyone how to wear their foundation/blush/powder/eyeliner/eyeshadow. Makeup is subjective. Everyone has their own makeup style. Many light people tend to go light/lighter or mix it with a luminzer to make themselves brighter/radiant/porcelin like. A great example of this would be dita von teese, who even stays out the sun to maintain her light skintone and wears light foundation. SOme people prefer paler, others darker and sunkissed. Thats a fact and a general reminder. As I said earlier.
    Peace beauties!
