Today I want to write about a product that I have been using almost daily in the past months.
It's the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in the lightest color #13 light beige!
What is BB cream?
The BB stands for "Blemish Balm" or "Beblesh Balm" and BB Cream is like a foundation that includes moisturing, anti-wrinkle and skin whitening properties. Altough it originally comes from Germany, BB Cream is very popular in Asia.
I have very sensitive and light skin. I suffer(ed) from bad acne the last years. I've been to a skin doctor, tried everything to get rid of the acne, but nothing helped. I had painful red lumps on my cheeks and chin that were impossible to cover with make up.
Fortunately, the lumps disappeared, but they left red blemishes and scars, and I think they will stay forever.
These are the blemishes on my cheek now... I was very insecure if I should show this on my blog, but I think the scars have gotten better A LOT. They are now easier to cover with make up, too.
My skin caused so much pain in the past and of course, my self confidence suffered a lot from this, but I feel good now and I still try to make my skin happy. ☻
Anyway, it's hard to find a good and LIGHT make up in Germany. Then I heard so many good things about BB Cream: Great coverage, skin care properties... I heard that Missha is a popular brand, so I decided I would try this!
How much do BB Creams cost?
They aren't very expensive in my opinion. On ebay, the price varies from 12 to 20 Euro.
By the way, a very trustworthy seller for maaaany Asian beauty products is BELLO-GIRL!
So, here is the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream #13:
It came in a cute heart package!
With a bow ♥
I just took this picture and like I said, I used this very often, so it's kinda dirty already... >_<
The BB Cream smells super nice! Kinda like actual BABY creams. :D
It's very light and blends perfect with the natural skin color. It also stays light the whole day. I say this, because many liquid foundations I used were getting darker after a few hours.
After use the skin feels soft and is not too dry and don't oily either.
But what about the coverage?
This was before:
And this is after:
The lighting isn't very good, but the redness is covered and if I use powder after applying the BB Cream, the acne scars are almost invisible! I think the coverage is quite good for such a light "foundation"!
I like it so much better than regular make up and I will definately continue using BB cream in the future. In fact, my Missha BB cream is almost empty and I already ordered another one:
Shiny Pearl Water Drop BB Cream from Skin79! I tought this might be great for summer, because it's supposed to be not as "heavy" as the Missha BB cream when the weather is hot.
Do you use BB Cream? Which one and how do you like it?
Or have you ever had skin problems?
I'm looking forward to comments! ♥
