I dunno why this post took me so long! But here it is! ENJOY!!
Products up for comparison:
Missha M Perfect Cover BB cream VS. Skin Food Aloe BB cream!!!
First of all, here's my skin type/tone description:
- combination but oilier in the summer
- neutral undertone so MAC's NC or NW doesn't work on me!! NC is wayyy to yellow and NW is too pink but for reference only i'm like a NC 20ish??
- I have some redness around my nose & mouth, undereye circles(who doesn't at this day & age!?!), some left over acne pigmentation, overall UNEVEN SKINTONE is my biggest issue
Missha's product description:
This M Perfect Cover BB Cream makes your skin tone clean and natural by concealing blemishes with excellent skin coverage.
It is a multi functional makeup cream with blocking UV rays, whitening and wrinkle care effects and simplifies makeup formalities.
It's moisturized application with W/S texture makes sleek skin tone while supplying moisture and nutrition at the same time.
Directions: After basic skin care, apply an appropriate amount all over the face following the skin texture. Then, complete the makeup with powder.Do not need to apply Sun cream in addition.
Skin food Aloe BB cream description from Ebay :p
A skin-care and make-up in one, this cream leaves your skin feeling moisturized while it corrects your skin tone. Your complexion looks naturally air-brushed, clear and fresh! Rich with aloe, it excellently soothes skin and provides moisture. Also contains SPF 20! Apply as a foundation or as a base before your foundation.
HAha i made a comparison chart!! i'm such a nerd ><>n the chart so you can actually read it!
*NOTE: they both has some what of a strong scent.. personally i dont mind them at all however if you're sensitive to strong scents i would recommend against these.
My face w/o BB cream:
I have uneven skin tone.. darkness under my eyes... redness... blemish scars & pigmentation.. I also have chapped lips in these pictures... but that's not something BB creams can fix LOL And please excuse my ugly hair & unmade bed !!!
Up first, SF's Aloe BB cream: (I don't know why i made a sad face LOL)
I think SF did a good job evening out my skin tone however you can still see some redness around my nose.
Up next Missha M's Perfect Cover BB cream:
From looking at the pictures I can see that Missha gives me that almost 'blurry' effect. It seems to diffuse light well to cover up my pores and uneven skin tone. You can see that the redness around my nose is gone!
Verdict: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Missha's Perfect cover BB cream!! I will definitely buy this one over and over again until I find a better one :p
Overall, i think I would choose to use my BB creams over regular foundation any day of the week! I find that my skin texture have improved so much ever since I've stopped using my MAC and Lancome foundations. I also think that BB creams feels much lighter ( like a moisturizer) so i dont feel as self-concious if the BF(or anybody else lol) decides to touch my face (LOL). I also think the finish is very natural and doesn't look like you have much on your face (which i LOVE).
True story: I was at my rotation one day and one of my patients said to me 'please write down for me EVERYTHING that you use for you face, moisturizer, foundation, whatever, cuz your skin is AMAZING and you look so glowy' lol And on that day I was wearing my Missha M BB cream :) I've also gotten many compliments from friends ever since I started using my BB creams that my face is glowing and healthy looking!
So for those of you who haven't tried BB creams yet I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend them!!!! Consider them as a nice vacation for your face away from all the heavy foundations.
