Monday, April 13, 2009


Missha M Perfect Cover B.B Cream offers a novel skincare concept with BB Cream, which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin cover ability, and prevents skin aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties”

The Before and After:

See the difference?  I do!!! Brightening… check! Concealing… check!  Even skin tone… check!  Can it replace my foundation? ABSOLUTELY!

I use Shade No. 23 (The darker version). 

This BB Cream comes in 2 shades – No.21 & No.23.

What I like about Missha M Perfect Cover:

It feels light.  However,  it doesn’t feel as light as other BB Cream’s I’ve tried.  I still feel that there is something on my face.  What I like the most about it is the packaging.  It comes in a tube with a pump!  So you don’t risk the chance of getting too much product out of the tube as compared to the traditional squeeze tubes.  One pump is enough to cover my entire face.  It also has a very light scent to it – floral scent?  Not entirely sure, but it doesn’t bother me.  It’s actually pleasant =], but the scent doesn’t linger around too long.  Another plus – sun protection.  This BB Cream has THE BEST sun protection I’ve come across… SPF 42 PA+++!  Awesomeness!  You get the sun protection without dishing out more money for sunscreen =] 

What’s PA?

SPF protects against UVB, while PA protects against UVA.  So if you’re going to be in the sun for a bit, it’s a good idea to get a product with both SPF and PA.

The Cons:

Oil control.  Compared to other BB Creams, namely Skin79 DermaRx… its oil control is so-so.  I tend to get a bit more oily at the end of the day with this on – total bummer! =[  And I’m too lazy to do touchups haha, but with this I’d have to use MAC’s Blot Powder on top, and then touch up with some blot powder throughout the day.

The Verdict:

I really wish this BB Cream had better oil control.  But despite that, it’s not like it’s something that can’t be fixed with some powder.  Would I buy this BB Cream again – YES!  The price is decent – about $20 (ebay) for 30mL.  That is a GREAT price for a product with such good sun protection!  That’s probably the main reason why I’d buy it again. 

It would be awesome to find a BB Cream with the oil control of Skin79 Derma Rx and the sunscreen of Missha M Perfect Cover.  My perfect BB Cream would be a combo of both, more on the Missha side because it makes my skin look nicer. =]  Tried this BB Cream?  Liked it?

@ Nic Nic ... I kind of agree about it clogging the pores a bit, but either way it still feels lighter than a foundation, and it works as a foundation for me. So I'd still pick it over a liquid foundation in the summer =]
