BB Creams are Blemish Balm Creams. Originally developed in Germany for post-plastic surgery patients, these creams are a makeup/skincare hybrid that have healing properties for the skin. Eventually, they made it over to Korea and are now incredibly popular. Typically, BB creams now have some sort of SPF, and companies market it as your all-one-product for a fresh and flawless look (foundation, skincare, and SPF). BB creams are supposed "adapt" to your skin coloring, but unfortunately rarely come in diverse shade ranges. Medium to dark skin tones are out of luck, as these are formulated for pale-light skin tones.
Beautylish tested Missha M Vita BB Cream SPF 20, retailing for $19.99. This particular BB cream is formulated for normal-dry skin (my type). If you have oily skin, you may want to try the M BB Cream instead (silver packaging, made for oily skin). The sleek, twist open tube that stands up on it's own looks great on any vanity or bathroom counter, and the rose gold/tan coloring is aesthetically pleasing.
The texture feels like a tinted moisturizer and glides on the skin. It dries to a soft and moist, not tacky, finish. The cream smells like some sort of baby skincare product...light and not overpowering. The color is a light beige with pink undertones. Luckily, it's sheer enough that it blends in with my skintone (pale with peachy undertones), however, I see a slight discoloration with my neck if I don't blend well enough.The cream has pretty good coverage, but I still need a concealer for blemishes and undereye darkness.
