To make up for this, we tend to use BB creams, concealers and foundation as our second resort. This isn't something to be ashamed of though. We are all beautiful because of our imperfections.
Anyway, one product I had been eyeing for a long time and was able to try out now is the Sooper Beaute Tinte Pore Reducer Cream Foundation in Beige.

Since I bought it on their sale, I got it for only PHP114 nd save PHP266! This also comes in three shades: Ivory, Beige and Tan. I was suppose to get the ivory since I find Beige a little dark for me but it was out of stock.
I like that it comes in a pump dispenser so you can control the amount that you can use. Also, being in this type of packaging makes it more hygienic. It also comes in an amber-colored plastic so it would not be easy for light to destroy its skin benefits and such.
It claims to reduce the appearance of pores and blemishes as it's a foundation and has snail extract (newest trend in skin care), shea butter (moisturizing), chamomile, aloe vera (both known for its soothing properties) and sunblock (although the factor isn't indicated).
Sad to say it has the four parabens on it (Methyl, Ethyl, Propyl, Butyl) and Disodium EDTA which may be harmful for the health. I was a bit disappointed as I'm thinking that all of Sooper Beaute's products are free from these ingredients.
That was the actual amount that I use to cover my whole face. Actually, a little of the formula goes a long way already so I'm quite sure that a bottle would last me up to 3 months, depending, of course, to the amount that I wanted to put on my skin.
Also, it seems to be darker on my skin tone so I use their Tinte BB Cream (which I find lighter for me) before this and I would finally achieve my shade.
The formula isn't that thick nor runny and dries with a moisture finish. It smells mild as well so you're not gonna complain if you're one who is very particular with a product's scent.
Coverage wise, it does not fully cover my skin's imperfections even on the second coat. It offers just light coverage. I guess this should be use when you want to look like you didn't put foundation on your face and would just want to look fresh all day.
I was amazed when I first use the product actually. It seemed to be dark at first but would eventually turned a shade lighter when blended on the skin. I don't know if all foundations are like this, but yeah, that's one thing I have observed about it. It feels light on the skin as well, but when you touch your face, it feels sticky so I just dab some powder to it.
It has a strong yellow undertone on it, making it perfect for Asian skin. I also didn't have problems with the application even I was just using my fingers to apply it on my face. After using it for a week, I experienced no breakout with this so there might be some hiyang factor for me.
All in all, this is a good foundation. however you might need the help of concealers if you really want to cover your blemishes and pimple marks.
