Hi again! ^_^/
Today I am going to review Skin79s BB cream made for dry skin. The cream only comes in the one shade, but it created to blend to match your unique skin tone.
All my life I have had extremely dry skin and very few pimples, however since the start of 2012 my skin has taken a complete change. I got this BB cream around Halloween of last year as I had heard so many good things about Skin79s BB creams. Since it was so long ago I don’t really remember how much I paid, however from what I’ve seen the price range is very reasonable, just watch you don’t pick up a fake!
The BB Cream claims to be whitening, anti-wrinkle, and SPF 25, sounds great!
The packaging is great and hygenic as you simple need to push the pump at the head of the bottle to release a small amount of BB cream.
When I first got the BB cream, I squeezed out a little and noticed how grey the formula looked. Since this is an asain brand I thought maybe it was grey because it was only suited to asain skin or something like that, and before even trying it I put it away in my stash of make-up. About a month later I ran out of foundation and I needed something so I turned to this BB cream, and I was just amazed straight away with the results! It felt so nice and hydrating on my dry skin, it covered my imperfections without looking cakey! Why havne’t I been using this all my life?!
Where I live, even in summer it can be very cold and grey, this means dry skin was an all year around thing for me. When I had dry skin, I very rarely got any pimples even as a young teenager, so I never had anything to cover up. Sadly, as I mentioned earlier, right now my skin has completely changed. My face is more oily than it has ever been, I’m covered in acne scars and marks, and if I forget to take my anti-biotic then my skin will break out awfully. If I get one pimple, it will stay as a ugly red mark for months, because of this I don’t feel like I can wear this BB cream anymore.
With how my skin is now, this BB cream makes my face look shiny, and it doesn’t come close to covering up my hideous skin. 😦
Here is a small photo of the formula itself, as you can see it does have those grey undertones like some other BB cream. Once you have applied the BB cream however it will soon blend to match your skin tone for a really natural finish.
To conclude, if you have dry skin and little need for coverage, then this BB cream is made for you!
If you have oily acne prone skin like me right now, then sadly this BB cream will be a little too oily and give too little coverage. I was thinking of trying Skin79s Pink or Orange BB cream though, since those are directed more to oily skin.
Overall Score 9/10
- Perfect for Dry Skin
- UV Protection
- Natural finish
- Reasonable Pricing
- Not suited to oily skin
This post ended up being a little negative, can you tell I’m feeling down about my skin today? Dammit I forgot my to take my acne anti-biotic the past few days! Never again! xD!
If anyone has tips for fading red acne marks I’d love to hear them!
