Recently I have been on a BB Cream kick. I had been wanting to try out some of the more popular ones that are actually made in Asia and compare them to the US ones. The only other made in Asia ones I have tried are from Dr. Jart+ and they are actually my favorites.
One of the ones I kept hearing rave reviews about from my Twitter friends was the Skin79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm. So I’ve been testing it quite a bit lately and have nothing but good things to say about it!
As with all good BB Creams this does multiple things for your skin. It contains UV SPF 25 PA++, helps moisturize, contains oil-fighting ingredients, whitening ingredients, evens out skin tone and hides pores and small imperfections.
I was actually highly concerned that I would be buying a fake container because I bought it from a seller on Amazon and read a lot about fake Skin79 products on Amazon and eBay. Once I got it I compared the box and packaging to a bunch of websites that shows how to spot the fakes. Mine seems authentic, so that’s good!
It’s a fairly thick creamy consistency and has a greyish cast to it. I was thinking there was no way this would work on my skin but it’s actually a completely perfect shade for me.
There are a few things I just love about this stuff. First off the texture is really nice. It’s moisturizing, thick and really creamy. It blends into my skin really easily and is also buildable. The shade which might look too pale or grey just completely melts and blends in with my skin. It does an excellent job of covering pores and tiny imperfections like little veins, red dots, etc.
It doesn’t ever look too shiny or too matte. Never chalky or drying. I never have to powder down halfway through the day. It feels light and nice on my skin. It lasts a solid 10 hours no problem. It never settles into fine lines either.
These are two shots taken on different days where I am wearing it. I like that it makes my skin look SO much better and more even, but still lets light freckles on my nose come through. It looks like real skin still, but nicer skin than when I wear nothing.
Overall: Well I can tell you this closely rivals, if not beats, my favorite Dr. Jart+ Premium Beauty Balm. I think these are extremely close in terms of coverage, color and all the benefits.
Have you tried Skin79 BB Creams yet? What did you think?
Note: I have no idea if they are cruelty free.
