I’ve been meaning to post these reviews for a while now, but the hot summer weather got the best of me and make me procrastinate too much! (｡・ε・｡)
The two BB creams that I will be reviewing are:
– Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream
– Skin79 Super BB Cream + Triple Functions
For those of you who don’t know what BB cream is:
“It is said that the formula comes from Germany where dermatologists prescribe it to heal laser skin surgery because it has soothing and skin-regenerating properties. Famous South Korean actresses then began using it for beauty purposes and since Asian dramas are huge all over, a craze was born. The trend that started in Korea first spread to Japan then to South East Asia and is now quickly making its way to Europe and the USA.” – Squidoo
Basically, it’s a type of base makeup that is lighter than foundation, but also has magic in it that makes your skin ‘better’.
After I started using it, I decided that I love BB cream! (-^□^-) The makeup at the drug store never really suited my skin colour – it was either too pale or two orange! BB cream shades suit my skin very well.
The first is Skin79’s Oriental Gold BB Cream. I bought it from this ebay seller, who sells genuine products. Watch out when you buy BB cream online because there are lots of fakes! So it’s best to buy from a trusted seller like Bellogirl.
I’ve heard mixed reviews about this BB cream, but I love it! It’s a bit of a heavier BB cream – great coverage and layerable if you have red spots. (°∀°)b No need to use too much though because it can get cakey pretty fast. It gives you a dewy look, which isn’t always what people want. Coverage lasts for a pretty good time – it looks great for about 3-4 hours, after that you might have to touch up with some powder.
Also comes with a lip/cheek tint, which I don’t use. The colour is a bit bright on my lips/cheeks, but it’s great for people who like the bright look I guess! Not really my thing haha. (ﾉω･､)
Second BB Cream is Skin79’s Super BB Cream + Triple Function. It’s supposed to offer the effects of whitening, wrinkle improvement, and ultraviolet rays interception. I bought this in an Asian beauty store in Quebec, but you can easily find this online. Again, make sure the seller is legit. (・・ ；)
This is a comparison of the different pumps! Oriental Gold has a pump that makes the cream come up from the centre. It’s good for if you put too much pressure on a too much cream comes out, you can easily just smear bits onto your face a bit at a time. However it’s less sanitary – you need to make sure you constantly clean the top.
Super BB cream has an opening that opens off to the side. More sanitary, but if you push too hard and get too much cream, you’re awkwardly stuck there with too much cream on your finger LOL.
I actually like Oriental Gold’s pump more, probably because I’m more used to it haha.
Here’s the comparison on my wrist! These BB cream shades suit my skin so much more than regular foundation!
They both also blend perfectly! ヽ(*’0’*)ﾂ
Overall, I love BB Cream. It’s light and covers well, and it doesn’t feel too cakey or heavy on my face!
If you have any questions, leave them in the comment box and I’ll try to answer them to the best of my ability 😀
