You all know how much I *loved* my Skin Food Mushroom BB cream but lately, I can’t seem to get my hands off my new Shills Super Magic BB Cream (Cherry Blossom edition).
Unlike most BB creams, the Shills Super Magic BB Cream (Cherry Blossom edition) is a 6-in-1 BB cream that is made in Taiwan. It offers protection against free radicals, evens out skin tone, brightens the skin, controls oil, moisturizes and conceals. It is also one of the best selling BB creams in Asia and is always featured in super popular TV show 女人我最大.
The Shill BB cream comes in a 50ml tube and the main ingredients are Gingko, Green Tea and Vitamin C. Like the Skin Food BB creams, you can use it alone for an au naturale look or underneath foundation if you require more coverage.
Texture-wise, the Shills BB cream is thinner and more hydrating. It feels less sticky and I find it to blend even better. The coverage is light to medium and it evens out my skin nicely while keeping it looking natural. Whenever I wear this, I only get compliments on my skin and not what I am wearing.
The only cons I have found so far are the lack of SPF and the limited color selection. Unlike the regular Shills Super Magic BB cream, the Cherry Blossom edition does not contain any SPF. The BB cream also comes in only one shade that is more yellow and lighter than the Skin Food BB cream shade #2 that I use. The good news, however, is it contains very fine shimmer that creates an instant brightening effect to perk up dull skin. It also wears really well throughout the day and I never have to set it or touch up with power.
Overall, this is the perfect BB cream for the winter and I am very pleased with it. I will definitely continue using this.
