So I was in the look-out for a BB cream that has a light-weight feel to it, but still, is able to conceal minor blemishes and even out skin discoloration. I say "minor blemishes" because I have long accepted the fact that I'm always going to need a concealer. Whatever it is that I choose to slap on my face, I will always need a concealer. Its currently my best friend! Haha!
So anyway, I was really confused whether to get the #1 or #2, because they only have two shades to choose from, but I'm glad I opted for this one instead. This shade looks more right on my skin, and the good thing about it is that it does not oxidize. It did not turn gray on me after a few hours, unlike others I have tried. Among all my other BB creams, this one right here is closest to my skin tone, so yes, its more on the yellow side. I honestly thought this would be a tad bit dark on me as I usually go for the lightest shade whenever I buy foundations, but this adjusted quite well on my skin. I think that's how most BB creams work. They just adjust to your skin tone.
As for the coverage. Well, why don't you just see for yourself?
Its good that it evened out my skin tone, and concealed some of my minor blemishes. But this isn't a full coverage BB cream to begin with, so a flawless finish is just impossible.
And after putting on concealer, and some powder as my finishing veil.
And some more pictures.
Overall, I love this BB cream. Despite having read mixed reviews about this product, I'm glad I still went on with buying this thing because its become one of my favorite BB creams! Its a light-weight cream, but still does a wonderful job in concealing and evening out your skin tone. The only two cons I see as of now is that 1, its SPF is lower compared to other BB creams out there. This one contains an SPF of 20 so you might want to wear a separate sunblock underneath and 2, its smell is something I find too much, it has a peach-y scent that can be a little to overpowering if you ask me. But other than those I have mentioned, this one is puuurfect!

What I love about this product:
Doesn't feel heavy on the skin
Has an spf
Covers minor blemishes
Evens out skin-tone
Small packaging therefore ideal for toting around
Doesn't oxidize (no gray casts whatsoever)
This stays put for a good of 6-8 hours (with touch-ups)
I don't blot as much with this on
What I hate about this product:
It dries fast so you have to be pretty quick in applying
Only has an spf of 20
Scent is overpowering
Will you buy this again?
Not really. But I might try other BB creams from Skin food as I've had a really nice time with this one.
Who would you recommend this to?
Those who have oily/combination skin. Like I've mentioned before, I have a combination skin but I don't blot as much whenever I have this on.
Where can I buy this?
I bought this online from a trusted seller for 500php, including shipping fee. Just a word of advice, don't ever ever buy Korean products in the mall as they are ridiculously overpriced there! When you do buy over the net though, just make sure you know who you're buying from because they could be fake for all you know. If I remember correctly this is around 950php in the mall. See the difference?
So there. Thank you for reading my blog. See you on the next one!
