(E) Skin79 Hot Pink Triple Functions BB Cream Review

After postponing and postponing and postponing (more like procrastinating), I have finally decided to do this review. I have had this BB cream for months on end now, so it’s about time! Ne?

This was my very first BB cream and I think I bought it back in September, at Everyday Beauty Supply (Chinatown, NY). It said $35 on the price tag but I’m sure there was a small discount when I purchased. You can get it on Skin79’s official website, skin79northamerica.com (they have a lot of info for the BB cream). It is also sold on prettyandcute.com in various sizes, so please check out this website. They have so many things to offer!

I prefer to get things in person if it’s easier than getting it online, I didn’t mind paying more. But seeing as how I would repurchase, online is the cheapest way to go.

Now onto the BB Cream itself—

This BB Cream offers light/medium coverage. I just love this BB Cream for lazy days where I don’t want to put much on. You can build up the coverage if you would like but use really light layers or it might look cakey. The texture is somewhat light but not really all that thick… (Not sure how to explain). A little goes a long way, and if you have some scarring or anything that needs a little more, you can always go back and apply a little more.

If you have a lot of scarring or prominent discoloration, I’m not sure how well the coverage would be for you. My freckles aren’t covered at all by the BB cream and same goes for dark spots. But since my skin has been doing well, I am satisfied.

The BB Cream has a strong grey cast when you apply it, but will oxidize after 15 minutes or so. For reference I am about NC25- NC30… but since I lost my summer tan at last, it could be different.

It match my skin okay with my summer tan, but now that I’m paler, it is perfect. It provides a natural finish—not too matte that you look flat and like you’re wearing makeup but not dewy where you look like you’re oily. The perfect balance. It’s great for my oily skin and it has sunscreen. I’m not one to set my make up with powder, I hate matte finishes for face products.

I really love this BB cream, and highly recommend it as an everyday one. It’s light, compact, provides natural light/medium coverage, and good for oily and combination skin.

The Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream is in obviously a hot pink tube that pumps out the product– Very hygienic. The reason why all the BB creams I have purchased have pumps ^^. There are no problems in how much product is pumped since it’s really controllable. And I like it for travel purposes too!

I have mentioned that you should be careful when ordering BB creams online, and below, I’ve uploaded pictures I took to show some things to be on the lookout for this specific BB cream.

  1. Look for the authenticity label at the bottom of the tube! If it’s messed up—no good. If it isn’t there—worse!
  2. Check to see if there is a perforated line on the back of the box!
  3. Check for manufacturer’s date on bottom.
  4. The top of the box should have “Super+ Beblesh Balm” in a red circle… (which was hard to get in a picture).
  5. Check the inside of the box, which has a language on each side– Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese.

I highly recommend this BB cream, it didn’t break me out, make me more oily or give me any problems. It was worth my $35 dollars, and I will repurchase for sure!

That’s all for this post. I’ll be reviewing more masks and BB creams in the following days so “stay tuned”.

Thanks for reading, see you next time. Bye~


Black Friday Pandemonium

Today’s the 20th of November, only 5 days until the day everyone who’s into the holidays (or the word SALE) is anticipating for.

Now, I have quite a list of people to get gifts for, but that’s only because they’re friends and family. I still have a few more people to get gifts for and I have no idea what to possibly get them.

But after the Fall semester coming to an end, and being too old to get gifts from my parents and family… I feel like my hard work and studies deserve a little gift. Even if it’s just one. I’m debating on finally getting rid of my frost blue Blackberry Curve 8520 and upgrading to the iPhone 4S. I’ve gotten pretty used to simple software on phones and have been using my iTouch since it first came out. Also, the idea of getting an Android phone scared the buh-jeebus out of me. I feel like if I get one, two days later a better one will be released. I wanted the Samsung Galaxy II in October, and when I log into myAT&T, there’s another one there.

I have been waiting for this upgrade since my phone started to go crazy, at the beginning of the semester. I’m paying for this with the money I received from REACH for passing more than half of my AP exams over the years. (I’m good at saving my money.)

But if that obviously doesn’t work out, I’ll go to Chinatown and Koreatown to shop for some make-up and skin care. I just looooove The Face Shop (not to mention Kim Hyun Joong is EVERYWHERE) and there’s a cute shop, Everyday Beauty Supply in Chinatown that has so many brands for its size. Bought every BB-cream, Kerasys and Lioeli product I own there. I forgot the name of one of the workers there, but she was so adorable and generous with samples.

Hmm, I got that out of my system. I like the idea of drabbling on my blog. If I do go shopping, I will do a haul and review each of the products. Maybe I’ll review the ones I have now once I find a good camera to take pictures of the products.
