Skin79 Orange BB

IMG_2950Can you believe this is the first Asian BB cream I’ve tried? I know, right? I love me my western BB creams but there’s always been a huge divide of those like me who are happy with Garnier and those who were fans of the traditional formulas and who were driven mad by the western brands calling every other base product BB. Let’s face it most that you try and glorified tinted moisturisers but as I’ve said many times it’s all about adjusting your expectations.. that’s really all they are so judge them as such. These original BBs are a whole different ball game however.

IMG_2892First and foremost the shade is DEAD on.. I really struggle to find a BB cream (jeez I feel like I need another name for that.. it’s getting SUPER repetitive, no?) that matches my skin tone but this was perfect, obviously the Asian cosmetic market is going to offer a wider selection of lighter colours but it’s also not too light.. just like baby bears porridge, juuuust right! I may have been reading too many childrens books, I apologise. The coverage is great, medium but buildable, the finish is satin, not so matte it exaggerates dryness but not so dewy it makes me look oilier than I already am. Skin79 do a huge variety of BB creams but this one has the added benefit of factor 50 sunscreen, anti aging properties and some kind of whitening effect. Now whitening can sound scary but most of the time all it means is that it will even out dark spots etc.. in my experience Asian products do this best and thus far I haven’t had any adverse reaction to what I’ve tried. The base lasts pretty well on me (again, I’m oily so not many do) and is one of the best BB/tinted moisturisers for oil control..  Lastly, packaging. It has a pump, very little waste, substantial bottle albeit plastic and the best thing is you can lock the pump so it wont spill in your makeup bag.

It is so rare that I try something about which I have nothing negative to say but I think this might just be one of those few. I received this from BestBBCreams which is a great site for Asian beauty products and one I will definitely purchase from in future. If you have any recommendations I’d love to hear them!

    This looks great! I’m hooked on Korean brand Skin Food – it has literally changed my pores 🙂

    Some of my friends go crazy for their BB creams but I’ve never been able to join in their joy because I’ve never found one that quite matches up nor given me a finish that can’t be beaten by foundation. I’ve never really differed from the standard drugstore ones however, so I might just give something like this a try!

    I have seen these in every single drugstore in Hong Kong in the past Summer. I do admit that they do a lot of amazing makeup and skincare products. I regret not picking up one myself but there was simply not enough room in my luggage!

    I’m a bit gutted cause the link seems to have either timed out or they don’t do it anymore on that website? You used it in a recent GRWM and I really liked the look of it, was just wondering if they still sell it from that website?
