Korean BB and CC Cream reviews of sample stash – LONG post

7 Apr

Remember when I got this?

So after careful scientific research…ha, here are my thoughts on the various lines of Korean BB and CC creams.

These are in order I used them.  I hope you enjoy!  Keep in mind – a lot of these products have whitening claims/properties – this is a cultural thing.  Also, since these are for an Asian, specifically Korean market, you won’t find a lot of shade variations.  The option is pale and more pale.

Skin 79 – Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm

This is whitening, moisturizing, priming, protecting.

As you can see from my picture, the color of this balm was a bit dark for me.   I used it over a moisturizer like the directions on their website suggested since I am dry in the Winter.  I thought this worked beautifully.  The only draw back is the shade.  I looked like I had a slight tan.  This may work for me in the Spring and Summer though.

Tonymoly  – Luminous Live Aura CC Cream

This shade is way better matched to my current skin tone.  I felt like this CC cream provided better camouflage of imperfections.  It blurred anything red and pore size.  Also, this had a slight tingle/burn like a peeling or retinol agent.

Ok, new fave.  This creams has a lot more coverage than the previous 2.  Covers a lot of redness, almost no under eye concealer is needed.  WAY AMAZE.

This looks a bit darker than it actually is.  It blends really well and this is the most moisturizing CC cream so far. I think this clogged my pores a bit.  I vote no for this one.

SkinFood Agave Cactus Sun BB Cream

This is a bit more runny than the previous creams.  The creamier consistency made this cream easier to apply and distribute.  It smelled really nice, sort of like aloe or a sun product.  However, I felt that it wore off the fastest of all I’ve tried.  Although it felt the best while on my skin.  This would work best for dryer conditions or after summer when skin is thirsty.

 This was very similar to the Agave Cactus version.  I honestly can’t tell the difference and  the scent is almost identical.

This is my last sample from the Skin 79 line of Super BB’s and I’m super sad.  All of these were great, and each other than the Hot Pink matched my skin perfectly.  Great products.

Tonymoly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream

I like this line of CC creams.  I am considering getting one of these for my collection as well.  I really like the consistency of this cream.

Skinfood Vita Water Drop CC Cream

I really disliked this CC cream.  I thought it was very watery and the wear time was not very good.  I don’t think it lasted through my work day.  Also, now that it is warming up my skin is not dry anymore and this was sort of oily on me.

I did pick a winner and ordered!  Want to know what I love?
