BB creams

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Long time lurker, finally posting =)

and of course, I also had a question I am very curious to see people's replies, as I do not think it has been really discussed much.

For the last I would say 6 or 7 years, I have used Skin79 hot pink bb cream on and off.

I personally have noticed it DID improve my skin (less redness/smoothed out/just more of a healed look)

I had a lot of sun damage/acne marks before and with regular use i found it did fade them out.

after all these years of using skin79, i am going to be trying out the Missha BB cream, as it also has a lot of great reviews. it is supposed to arrive this week =)

 

SO my questions:

1) what bb cream do you prefer/use? what kind of skin you have? how long you been using it?

2) have you seen improvement in your skin by using BB creams?

 

*more about my skin*

acne prone/rosacea/very sensitive, easily break out if using wrong products

i am in my 30s now, and know what works for me, but when I was a lot younger and still experimenting with products, my skin was terrible.

now i only get 1 or 2 pimple a month =) I wear bb cream almost daily, for the light coverage, healing properties, and sunscreen =)

i RARELY wear actual makeup/full cake face haha (only for events like going out or weddings etc)

 

Thank you <3

I've stopped wearing BB cream. The only BB cream that I used was Missha BB cream. Now I only wear Mac Foundation.

oh cool, I am excited to receive my Missha, it arrives tomorrow =) may I ask what made you go to only wearing foundation?

did you see any improvement in skin while using Missha? I used skin79 on and off for many years and I did find it helped, wondering if Missha will as well!

I do also wear foundation, but ONLY for events etc. day to day it is bb cream :) i love the light feeling and skin benefits i seem to get from it (i know everyone is different tho of course!)

 

and to all the other replies, have you experienced any skin benefits/improvements (even if minor) from using BB cream? very curious as based from what I have read, most people have not ( I guess I was lucky/my skin liked it?)

I have been using BB and CC Creams for years but I never pay attention whether it does improve my skin bcoz I use them for “decorative” purposes only not as a treatment. For skin treatment I depend more on my Retinoid Acid and Cetaphil Moisturizer which’s do wonder to my skin....

agreed, it is not a skin treatment for sure haha, I just think it has possibly helped me in addition to my skincare routine =)

because i remember a few times when I didn't have any on, then let's say I wore it for a week straight, and then I didn't wear it, my coworkers were like are you wearing bb cream today and I told them no and they were surprised because of how much less redness and blemishes i had used!

I don’t have much of a problematic skin , perhaps an oilier T zone but I don’t think it improved my skin . I like using bb creams cause it provides good coverage with SPF. And i can skip the use of foundation. 

 

I hv tried a number of korean skin care brands but Laniege I use the most . What I think helped my skin was its water bank moisturiser

I prefer the foundation over BB cream because BB cream is lightweight coverage. Mac foundation gives me more coverage. Also, I can get Mac Foundation easily in the stores compared to Missha BB cream. I don't remember if missha help me with my skin.

I live in a very hot place. always summer all the year lols so I don't use BB cream :relieved: for decorative stuffs I just use loose powder from the body shop. I don't use foundation too. but I used etude BB cream once. and it is good. and I also keep cushion cream from Laneige. but I do rarely use it.

I found a Korean brand bb cushion foundation from Laniege. I like it so far but it’s too pale. It’s good though.

Hi Sejabin, the man I’ve got my eye on has complimented me on my eye make up. Honestly some men lie about not caring about looks or make up on. I’ve seen this with my own eyes. It really depends on what kind of man you want.

Ah!!! That is true too. I know a guy who likes pretty woman. He keeps talking like “you look pretty.. or you look very pretty.. or you look beautiful.. or you look cute..” so I got conclusion that he is a type of a guy who likes to see a pretty face. Used to be I met a man who objected my make up and prefer natural bare face but I told him I put make up because I love to do this stuff. So strange. If he objects my make up why he wants to be with me right? He can find someone else who loves natural bare face to go out with him.. tsk :unsure: I prefer a man who will appreciates and supports what I do with my body. Put make up or not.

@Sejabin some men are really scared of what might be underneath the make up lol. Remember those Chinese make up YouTube videos? They think we’re trying to trick them but I don’t want a man like that. A real man likes a woman who is well put together, the type of man who is willing to be in a committed relationship.

hahaha.. agree.. a real man will accept us with make up or not. of course we must to look pretty. 

about that's chinese make up on youtube hahhahaha.. thats why it's better to not put too much make up except for special events or formal parties. xixixixi. I always put my casual makep up everyday because my job makes me meet many people everyday. I want them to be happy if see me so I need to look pretty. but when get home I will clean my make up. sometimes if I go out up to 6 PM to supermarket or restaurant I only wear lipstick. I will put more make up for special events or formal party.

I use Missha BB cream (red one) this one has really good coverage.

My skin actually breaks out less ever since I started using this BB cream too! Very surprising.
