So what are BB creams?
BB stands for Blemish Balm, Blemish Base or Beblesh Balm. It was initially used by dermatologists to help laser surgery patients protect, soothe and refine highly sensitive skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.
Then BB creams started to become very popular in Asia as they were discovered to be a "secret weapon" amongst Korean actresses for their flawless and youthful skin.
So of course I had to try it!!
SKIN79 has Adenosine and Arbutin which are effective in pigmentation lightening and in lessening wrinkles, giving you radiant and supple skin. This brand also provides UV Protection. It also incorporates a mixture of sunflower, rice bran and ivy extracts called Osmopur which protects skin from various harmful conditions. An ingredient called Phyto Complex keeps skin moist and healthy.
Functions of Skin 79's BB Cream
Skin Tone Balancing
Make Up Base
Works As Prescribed Regimen
A lot of people complain on how the Skin 79 Super+ BB Cream has a greyish tone to it's color but that tones down as soon as the BB cream oxidizes. It's very light-weight and goes on the skin very smoothly. Has a very light pleasant smell to it too. I wouldn't say that it could cover up difficult imperfections on the skin though.
BB creams are a great alternative to foundation as it's light-weight formula does not clog up pores and gives our skin a much needed break from heavy make up. Whenever I wear this cream my skin feels so fresh and light and I have noticed that I don't break out too. Also I found this cream to be a savior during summer. Light and enriched with an SPF25 it was exactly what my skin needed not to feel weighed-down by foundation.
If you choose to wear something on your face why not choose something that can actually do GOOD for your skin?
Think about it.
The only "con" I can point out about this product is that it only comes out in 1 shade. But let's be realistic, these are Korean products and it's only logical that they would come out in a universal light shade. But what I would do during summer is after I would set the BB cream with face powder I would brush my face lightly with a bronzer until I would get the desired tone that I wanted. Piece of cake.
So I would definitely recommend Skin 79's Super+ BB Cream and I personally can't wait to try out more BB creams from different companies.
