    hey guys, one question ; urms, for the skinfood bbcream which ones would you say would have the best oil control? I'm still confused whether to get the aloe, gingko or the mushroom one.

    Seconded! Please if someone could kindly elaborate image
    The reviews for those three were kind of similar.. especially the gingko and mushroom ones.

    Fragrance: To me it smells like soap xD
    Oil-Control: I think the oil control is decent... i used powder on top so i'm not sure

    [BB Cream Brand & Name] Missha Perfect Cover #23
    Coverage: Medium
    Texture: Thick & Creamy liquid
    Shade: #23 is waaaaaay too dark for me. I know I'm not that fair, so I was actually surprised it made me look like I put on tanning lotion
    Fragrance: Smells like my grandma, and after some time it has this rubbery smell to it.
    Oil-Control: n/a
    Dewy or Matte (finish): matte
    Overall comments: The first thing I said when I put it on was "ZOMBIE!!!". image I remember some soompi members saying their faces looking a bit grayish at first, so I thought it was normal and just waited till the bb cream took its effects. But really, it was scary. I rode the bus to school, and the bus ride was my "waiting time" for the bb cream to show its true shade. When I was almost at school, which was 20 mins. later, my face looked really dark! It was so fake, I had to run to nearest bathroom and wipe it all off. When I first saw the grayish effect on my skin I thought the bb cream was too light, but NOOO, gosh no, it was brown as chocolate. Soooo, I just probably got the wrong shade. I think I should've gotten #21, but I'm not THAT fair, so I thought #23 was really the perfect shade for me.

    The coverage and the overall effect, however, was really nice. I don't have perfect skin, but it made my face look clean and smooth.
    I have nothing to say about oil control though, since I removed it right away. image
    Oh! It didn't make me break out as well. I'm sure of it, since I didn't wash the product off. I just wiped some of it, and I could still see some of the effects after I've wiped it off. My skin is really sensitive, and if a product is really bad for me, my face would break out in the afternoon (if I apply it in the morning).

    I have an extra sample of Missha's #23. Is there anyone willing to trade with #21?
    I wanna try it first to make sure I don't waste my money on a full size bottle/tube. image

    Drat. I have no way of buying bb cream in stores, and I'm not buying anything off the Internet, so I thought I'd try to swap for it, but the only Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream I could find to swap for was #21. Maybe there's someone who has a #23 who might want to swap? image


    Is your #21 the full size bottle? I only have a sample, so if yours is just a sample, I can swap with you. image

    Sorry, I don't.
    I've just checked your 411, but I can't really tell if I'm lighter than you 'cause of the flash effects in your pictures. image
    I guess I am lighter, based on some of the pictures...
    you can buy samples online too. I think it's better if you try it on yourself first, 'cause someone posted before that #21 was yellowish.

    anyway, I'll probably update again this weekend. I'll try it again, and keep it on my face the whole day.


    Oh, my photos in my 411 are over a year old.
    What about other foundation shades? Anything? lol.
    Im not chocolate dark as you described #23..so i don't know lol.
    Or maybe you could provide me a picture of your skintone?

    Just ordered Missha PC #21.
    I read that it oxidizes for some people, ugh. ;~;

  • _serene_serene Posts: 194Member
    If we apply BB cream like the Missha PC, are we suppose to set it with a finishing powder so it won't look shiny and oily? Any recomendations? And what kind of blush do you recommend for BB creams ^^;
    Serenely yours...
    i love you.

    Skin type: Dry.
    Skin tone: Light/Medium
    Skin undertone: Neutral with slightly more yellow beige.
    Skincare Regime: Dermalogica cleanser, Laneige refiner;emulsion;essence;waterbank cream. Clay mask once a week with moisturizing sleeping pack.


    [Hanskin Premium Magic BB with SPF 15]
    Coverage: Sheer to Medium.
    Texture: Thick, a bit difficult to blend.
    Shade: Has some slight pink undertones.
    Fragrance: Has a slight smell, but I can't really place it, it doesn't smell bad.
    Oil-Control: No oil control.
    Dewy or Matte (finish): Dewy.
    Overall comments: I'm not sure if it's because I use tons of lotions/sunscreen before applying make up but it looked like I rubbed my face with crisco. I had to dust my face with MSF so I don't look like a discoball. It did however even out my skin tone and covered up my undereye circles. I still had to use concealer to cover up post acne marks. I would repurchase because I like how it looks with MSF dusted over it.

    [Hankins Control Skin ]
    Coverage: Sheer but Buildable
    Texture: Very creamy.
    Shade: It looked orangey/yellow at first but it blended in.
    Fragrance: Slight alcoholy fragrance, not bothersome.
    Oil-Control: Oil control was OKAY. Nothing spectacular.
    Dewy or Matte (finish): Semi-Matte.
    Overall comments: I didn't like this BB cream much, alone it didn't really look that great. I tried wearing studio fix/MUFE HD/Dual cyrstal foundation and have found that it makes my make stay on just a bit longer than normal. I passed it off to my sister who has acne issues, she seems to like it.

    [Hanskin Glossy Magic ]
    Coverage: Very sheer
    Texture: Liquidy, very easy to apply
    Shade: Pinkish gray
    Fragrance: Typical cosmetic smell
    Oil-Control: The oil control wasn't bad, it's the pearlized gleam not oil that people seem to mistake as bad oil control.
    Dewy or Matte (finish): Dewy/glowy
    Overall comments: This works great as a highlight. It's definitely more believable as a highlight compared to things msfs,shimmerbricks etc. I would def repurchase this product again, as I like the dewy/glowy look. It reminds me of a lighter version of missha's watery bb cream. I'd prob mix it w/ a bb cream w/ more coverage as it's very sheer.

    BRTC Perfect Recovery
    Coverage: Medium
    Texture: Creamy
    Shade: BRTC cream's have only one shade
    Fragrance: None
    Oil Control: It's pretty good
    Dewy or Matte (finish): Matte but then it turned dewy on my skin
    Overall comments: I think this is a good cream. I haven't broken out from it at all. The only concerns I have about it is that 1. It's expensive 2. The cream itself is more pink/pale. My skin color is more yellow/tanish so when I put on the cream, it really drowns out my skin. I only use it as a concealer now and then put powder on the rest of my face. Other than that, I haven't broken out from the cream at all and it's pretty good.

    Aloe Sun SPF20 PA+ 50mL
    Coverage: Medium
    Texture: Creamy
    Shade: Shade 2
    Fragrance: I can't describe it but I really like the smell of it. It's a mixture of aloe and make-up
    Oil-Control: It's pretty good!
    Dewy or Matte (finish): Matte and then it turns dewy
    Overall comments: I LOVE wearing SkinFood! It feels really light on my skin and I can feel my skin breathing for once! I had to use the shade 2 because my skin is darker with yellowish tones. After I wash my face and put on lotion, I usually apply the cream and pat it all over my face. Then I use the BRTC bb cream as a concealer and then powder the rest of my face. It's the second day I'm using it and my skin feels so much better! I haven't broken out yet from wearing the cream either. The only concern I have is getting the cream. My mom went to Hong Kong for vacation and spent forever trying to find the cream. If you live in Korea, I'm sure you'll have an easier time.

    Skin type:
    Skin tone:
    Skin undertone:
    Skincare Regime:

    Skin type: Acne-prone, combo
    Skin tone: I wear Clinique make-up so my foundation is shade 24 and powder is 06 deep.
    Skin undertone: yellow-ish beige
    Skincare Regime: Day: just water and lotion Night: a ph balanced cleanser and lotion

    Just thought I'd share this information.

    Not to discourage anyone from using bb cream (I've been using bb cream for the past year now), but recently my mom told me there was a newspaper article about how there is asbestos in Korean bb creams which are toxic and known to cause lung cancer.
