h, oh! Joan is back!! I’ve been terribly busy these days and damn internet connection (as always).
I had been searching for BB cream in the past few weeks. I read so many reviews from makeup gurus to bloggers. This is my first BB cream ever, I just don’t want to get disappointed after buy the wrong or standard BB cream. My nominees were from Etude House, Missha (Perfect Cover), Skin79 (Hot Pink-I didn’t know before, thanks Jen from frmheadtotoe! I was really moved by her recommendation) and The Face Shop (Power Perfection).
At first, because I thought there weren’t any Skin79 counter here (apparently I was so wrong xp), so I had to eliminated it and shortly, Missha Perfect Cover BB cream become my strong nominee. It’s like everybody and every beauty blogger recommend this BB cream. I was going to order it at online shop when I ended up finding Skin79 counter and I got the tester. I tried the Hot Pink one. I was so impressed, except the smell because it’s lot like sunblock. But it’s still fine. Suddenly I forgot about Missha, but in the end I went to Missha counter and tested the #23 (#21 is for fair skin tone).
First, my skin felt wet feeling (I don’t know the term, maybe dewy finish?). I didn’t like it, but after few minutes the feeling slowly disappeared. I think the result was almost the same with the Skin79 Hot Pink, but I had already falling in love with Skin79. Hoho..
So, as soon as I got home, I ordered the Skin79. But instead of bought the Hot Pink one, I chose the Oriental Gold Plus, because this BB cream has new formula. Well, I hope it worth to try I think..
I'll review the Hot Pink first, a tester to be exact.
SKIN79 Hot Pink Super BB Cream (Tester)
First applied, as always, BB cream will look so white in our skin, but then it blended so well. No wet or greasy feeling, and the smell wasn't that bad actually. I think I used the cream pretty thick because my dad immediately noticed that I used a cream! or maybe because of the powder? didn't know..-,-
I have oily skin type, but this can control the oil in my face for few hours. My face looks really smooth after used it, redness all gone..dark circle under my eyes also reduced.
