Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for November 2008




Korea BB cream (BB stands for Blemish Balm) is one of the hottest talks of beauty amid women in recent years. The BB cream not only can cover blemish but function as post-laser skin treatment too. The trend burst forth in Asia when BB cream was hot amid Korea celebrities.


I have not tried any until I bought Hanskin Super Magic BB cream mini size 10ml from Boots pharmacy lately, costs me 680 baht. Provided whitening and wrinkle-fighting properties with SPF 30 PA++, I proceed the purchase despite the expensive price tag and no tester to test, of course I did read reviews from various sources that this BB cream suit for pale skin.


The consistency is considered thick yet creamy, but not runny on face. Not fragranced, color looks dark grayish that worried me not a good match of my skin tone at first. Fortunately, it blended easily into my skin like moisturizer, the color matched my fair skin tone by itself, the result was pretty natural like no make up on. Face was moisture, radiant and dewy.


It has sheer coverage to even skin tone but did not cover my skin problem like broken capillaries, freckles, pores effectively even skin is glowing and natural. I quite happy with the dewy look. however, the BB cream has given me darker skin tone ( slightly orangey-grayish ) when the BB cream oxides on me, perhaps due to my skin dullness, that’s why I don’t tend to re-purchase because I don’t know when my face will looks horrible without look at mirror constantly.


I love it is moisturizing for my dry spots, lasting powder was not impressed, might need powder to control excess shine, if you have oily skin, I afraid it’ll imparts the excess oily look. I was wondering if all brands of BB cream has the same result.  


Rating:  … ))) satisfied  Satisfied. Unlikely to buy again.
