BB Cream Makeup Product Reviews, Swatches and Product News

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.

Here are the reviews as promised:

The Aloe Sun BB cream (shown on the left) contains aloe to hydrate and soothe your skin and is recommended for acne-prone and sensitive skins. Compared to the Gingko BB cream, the texture is slightly runnier which makes it easier to blend. It also has SPF20 to protect your skin from harmful UV rays but other than that, I do not see much of a difference between this and the Gingko Green.

As for the Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream (shown on the right), it is definitely my favorite out of the three! It contains aloe and mushroom extract, adenosine, arbutin and SPF 20 to help whiten and slow down the aging process for a brighter, more radiant complexion. It is recommended for mature skin and dull complexions. Like the Aloe Sun, the texture of this one is more runny and it feels very hydrating. It feels very light, almost like one of those watery moisturizers but gets absorbed into my skin instantly. My skin just glows after I put this on but I do not ever get oily on my t-zone when I use this. The smell of this one is also stronger than the other two but that does not bother me.

I am *so* glad I jumped onto the BB cream bandwagon! This is definitely one of the products of the year for me!

The Skinfood Gingko Green BB cream, one out of the three BB creams Korean beauty brand Skinfood makes, contains Green Tea, Gingko Leaf, Vitamin B and Lecithin to provide both skin protection and skin correction. Basically, what that means is it has the properties of both a makeup and a skincare product. It can even out skin tone, camouflage undereye circles, acne scars and add radiance to the skin without the heavy mask-like effects of a foundation. Prolonged use of the product will also help improve the overall texture of the skin and fade scars caused by acne.
