Looking for the best BB cream there is in the market? Look no further. The best is named, the best is here! And it's no other than...Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream! I know you might not believe me, but try reading other blogger's reviews and they will tell you what's with Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream that it is claimed to be the best BB Cream in the world!
Believe me, I did not believe in all these claims either until I was contacted by Althea, inviting me to be one of their beta testers. By the way, Althea is finally now here in the country! Head over to ph.althea.kr and get authentic korean branded products for a much cheaper price! So yeah, I agreed, of course, and included Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in my haul. I know there's tons of good reviews already available in the internet but well, I just want to share my experience with it too!
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, 50 ml
Bought for: Free (P1600 on local department stores | P560 on Althea)
That's just what I am talking about! You can get authentic korean products at Althea! Prices are dirt cheaper by at least 70%! What are you waiting for?! Go grab your favorite products straight from Korea!
First off, the packaging is very nice. Very high-end looking indeed. It comes with a metallic box with enough information on it already. The product, however, is caged in this squeezable tube with a pump dispenser and a tight cover so you can easily control the amount of product in which you want to use. Very hygienic and travel-friendly, it is.
It has lots of ingredients on it, including parabens which some might find a turn-off. Its but okay with me as though it's something I would not consider using like, for the rest of my life. And I expected it already as it did not claim to be made, of course, of all-natural and all-organic ingredients.
Being a korean brand product, I did have lots of expectations about it plus the comments of other people who said that Missha is really a good BB cream, in fact, the best BB Cream for them. I guess, Missha did not, in anyway, disappoint me.
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream claims to offer a novel skin care concept with BB Cream, which lighten skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability and prevents skin-aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties.
It also 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. Its moisturized application with W/S texture makes sleek skin tone while supplying moisture and nutrition at the same time.
It has SPF 42 PA+++ which has a broad spectrum sun protection so you need not to worry getting tanned after sun exposure. Yet, you are still advised not to stay TOO LONG under the sun even while using sunscreen. With all its tested claims, maybe it really deserves to be a little heavy on the pocket.
Unlike other typical BB Creams, this one smells nice without a hint of foul-smelling chemicals. By the way, the shade that I got is the No. 21 in Light Beige. There's two shade available online: No. 21 and No. 23. I did not choose the latter as it seems to be a little darker for my skin tone. I do hope there's a shade in between as No.21 is a teeny tiny light for my skin tone still. But it's just fine, as this easily adjust to a skin tone with its neutral undertone.
One pump is more than sufficient. The formula isn't too runny nor liquidy, you can easily blend it on the surface of your skin. However, it dries fast so you make sure to easily distribute it along the corners and creases of your face to avoid uneven skin tone. It also dries in a semi-matte finish and is very lightweight on the skin, you need not to worry whether you have super oily skin like me as it does not feel anything greasy on the skin. And because of that, I bet it's perfect for any skin type!
Application is really easy with Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream! However, you can use brush, sponge or even fingertips but I really don't recommend sponge or brush with this BB Cream as its best applied with fingertips (at least for me). Just dab product on your forehead, cheeks, chin and nose area then blend it well. You can use the other product to build coverage on problem areas. During cold days, with my oily skin, I am actually not in need of a setting powder but prefer to use one on hot ones for a matte finish.
Now I know why it's a great BB Cream! One coat is actually enough to hide lightest pimple marks on the face yet concealer is still needed. I'd say it just offers light to medium coverage, enough to conceal redness and minor blemishes but not reddened scars. It's almost similar to foundations in terms of coverage. It does not trigger severe oil production too! Now, my face is fresher looking even after hours of commuting to school. In fact, I think retouch is not anymore needed when you use this BB Cream if you want to achieve that dewy Korean skin.
Overall, this is a very good product! And the best BB Cream I have ever used. So, have you tried it? Share it here with me! Happy blogging!
