Great for my skin type. I use this when I am very oily, for example in the summer time. It actually heals my skin so I alternate it with the Gold VIP and Vital Orange Skin79 BB creams
Though I've heard a lot of good things about this particular BB cream, I got a sample tube of it some time last year because I wanted to make sure I liked it and it worked for me before I splurged on buying the full-sized bottle. Authentic Korean cosmetics, especially from popular brands, are sadly not the most affordable here.
I love the packaging of this, first of all. Hot pink is always an eye-catching choice! I also like how it's sturdy and it dispenses just the right amount of product which you can still control. Not very travel-friendly I don't think, since it can easily leak out, but it's not a major con for me. It's also buildable, which is something I always look for when it comes to foundations and BB creams, especially since I have large pores and blemishes to hide. Coverage is medium, I would say, but again you can always build it up. Not sure why some people say it made them look a little 'grey' or 'ashy' upon application because it certainly didn't for me! On its own, lasting power is average for me as someone with combination skin and who lives in a tropical climate, but nothing a good setting power and setting spray can't fix!
Definitely one of the better BB creams I've tried, without a doubt. But now I'm interested in trying out the "SUPER PLUS TRIPLE FUNCTION BB VITAL CREAM SPF50 PA+++" variation.
Popular for a reason
I love this stuff--it comes out thick but applies lightly and evenly (I use a damp Beautyblender). If I need a bit of spot coverage I'll dab a bit more on with my fingertip. It matches my skintone just about perfectly, and although there is a bit of greyness at first it oxidizes in just a few minutes leaving me with a uniform complexion. My one complaint: With the opaque bottle it's practically impossible to tell when you're running out until it's too late! Quite the inconvenience when you have to have it shipped from halfway around the world. Still, it's worth it. A bottle lasts me about 5 months and costs about half the price of Western foundations (while working twice as well!).
My absolute fave in my make-up kit!
I use the VIP Gold version of this product almost everyday.
If I'm not looking to wear make-up on a particular day, I just wear this. It has everything you could ask for. It's light and easy to apply. It's got sun protection and staying power.
I bought my first bottle over a year ago from a "Face Shop" a couple towns over, but when I needed a new one, I found shop on eBay that sends you two for the price of one and was so ecstatic to receive it and see it was the genuine article.
I have acne prone skin so I always worry about products potentially making it worse, but my skin has actually improved with this product being added into my routine.
It retails in the Face Shop for about $23 canadian and I can't stress how much I love it.
You want a perfect complexion and be able to add a tint of blush and highlighter?? This is the best bb cream I've tried as well as the VIP Gold edition as well. I have more of a fair complexion, but this cream evens out my skin tone and leaves my face feeling soft. I love it and I'm hooked. You can buy it cheap off of amazon!
I use this BB cream in VIP edition, which has such ingredient as caviar. This product helps to tone and smooth the skin very well. It doesn’t make the face too white. It has such ingredient as Aloe Vera, so presents non-oily smooth skin tone. For me it is big plus – my face doesn’t stay sticky during the day, the cream absorbed fast. The problem of sebum production this cream solves great. Unfortunately, pores stay half-visible. UV protection works very good. About wrinkle improvement I can’t say anything exactly, ’cause my skin is young, but small wrinkles which I had on my forehead, during the using this cream, are still at the same place. Radiance of my skin I didn’t notice. So, the advantages of BB cream are: non-oily smooth matt skin tone, good absorption, less visibility of pores, UV protecting. But I didn’t notice, that it made my skin more resilient and radiant.
I love it, but I'm pale!
The original Korean BB Cream is just so excellent, I can't even begin to sing its praises! This is great as a base for a foundation, or even to wear on days where you want a nice, light coverage for a day where you don't want to wear a lot of makeup. I've been using it for months and months. The only thing I wish was better is that this goes on on in a greyish hue, and I'm quite pale, so it's a tiny bit too dark. I'm trying different varieties soon! But so far I do love this kind a lot.
It's le original!
Come on, it's Korean BB cream, what do expect? Perfection? Well, almost!
I've used this for 5 months. Admittedly I don't wear it everyday, but when I do it is smooth, matches my skin color, doesn't dry or cake or crack or melt.
It doesn't give great coverage like another BB I've tried, but oh the difference when I remove Skin79, it's like whoa, my complexion is terrible! So yeah, it does give you good coverage, just don't expect foundation like coverage.
I'm using Clinique for my acne prone skin as well so I won't link any clear skin to the BB cream.
I would definitely recommend it though! I've never heard of different shades so sorry if you're not fair or light tan~
i been using this for about 3 months and seen results within 3 weeks. i have sensitive skin and acne pron skin but this made my skin clearer and even helped with the redness in my face
Started using this BB cream about 2 months ago and so far I am liking it! I don't go up to far underneath my eyes though, because I have found that my eyes start to water! So I apply my regular foundation underneath my eyes and blend in with where I stopped and it blends in so well! I highly recommend this to anyone who like a natural coverage!
