While I am waiting for the last episode of Goblin (a Korean drama) to be downloaded, I decided to post another review which is due a long time ago already but given attention only just now. It's not really intentional but it's only today that I decided to take a look at my drafts because I am too lazy to upload new photos pf beauty products to write something about. Yes, I do have a long queue of to-review posts in times like this lol. Anyway, let's get started!
For those who haven't heard of Mischka Derma Secret, it's not a drugstore brand but an organic one that was established on 2012 and is currently growing popularly over the internet, particularly, on Instagram--a social platform which also has been a home for entrepreneurs like Ms. Mich, the owner of the aforementioned shop. To date, they cater to women of all ages through their eco-friendly beauty and makeup products.

I won't comment much on the packaging itself because it's just how organic products are stored nowadays-in pump plastic bottles. This one though is almost the size of a hand sanitizer in a small spray bottle so I can bring it anywhere I want without worrying how much space it would consume in my makeup pouch. If I am not mistaken, this derma cover is available in shades light, fair and tan. I got the one in fair and I thank Ms. Misch for giving me just the right shade.
The product formulation is very similar to foundations and is neither thin nor thick in consistency, so I'm thinking that this actually is formulated to be one. I'm kind of confused whether it's a BB or a tinted cream, a foundation or what because it's not clearly labeled. It's just said to be a derma cover and nothing else follows. If I am to categorize it, I would say it's a BB Cream to Foundation formula because it gives at least a coverage.
The product is mildly scented, something like baby powder, which I like. I prefer using my fingers when applying this and it's not giving me a hard time as it's easy to blend with a seamless powdery finish. However, I find that if I layer it over sunscreens or creamy moisturizers, it tends to cling on the folds of my skin and creates a patchy look so I advice that if you are to use it, use it alone or under gel-type moisturizers and serums only. You don't have to worry though because it has a whopping SPF30 which gives skin enough protection under the sun. The best thing about it is its lightweight formulation and sheer coverage which looks nice for a natural makeup look.
I don't know if I described it properly but surprisingly, I find myself a lot of times reaching for this product during hot days because it does not feel tacky and irritating when worn even after hours. However, it sucks on the longevity department. It already wears off my skin for more or less two hours. Liquid products are not something I would reapply (unless I wash my face), so to prolong the product itself, set it with a good setting powder.
Overall, I like Mischka Derma Secret Derma Cover SPF30. I highly recommend it to whatever skin type you have. Right now, I don't care if a product is effective or not as long as it won't break me out and I am happy to tell you that this product did nothing to trigger any adverse reaction, much less breakouts. A little of this would go a long way too (I use half a pea-size for the whole face and neck), still, it looks a little expensive for its size but it's worth the price.
Tell me if you want to purchase yourself or if you already have it. Let's talk in the comment section down below! Happy blogging!
