Missha - M Perfect Cover B.B Cream (No.21)
According to the front of this product, it reads:
"MISSHA M Perfect Cover B.B Cream offers a novel skincare concept with B.B 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 product has a SPF 42 PA+++
I got mine off of ebay, here is the seller I got it from (they are located in Korea; I highly recommend them. They offer fast shipping, and the prices are decently cheap!)
I've been using this B.B cream for a few days now. I'm hoping that it won't break me out (and if it does, expect another post on here!!). The consistency of it is quiet thick upon application. I don't like to use my fingers for this, so I rely on using my MAC 187 Brush. You don't need a lot of product to cover your entire face. I use about a dime's worth, and the MAC 187 makes it a fast process to apply it with. Now, keep in mind, you MUST set this thing with a loose powder, or it will look really dewy. If your skin is slightly oily after a while, this is important too. The B.B cream is also water resistant, I have found. So you will need a heavy duty cleanser to get this thing off (I use the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil, and it does just that). The smell, well, you either hate it or love it. I don't mind it. But keep in mind the smell does not go away for quiet some time. Even after an hour after application, I could still smell it, but it doesn't bother me.
You can purchase this particular B.B Cream in a 30mL (as I did- just to see how it was) or a 50mL tube, which comes with a pump. Mine doesn't have one, but it's OK!
The coverage is medium. I did have to go back with some concealer on top of this for more obvious red spots. But, that's fine by me. The end look of this product is very natural! I love how youthful and clear it makes my skin look. It also makes it glow too, and it doesn't look like you're wearing a ton of foundation, or that you spend the entire day caking your face with powder. I love this B.B Cream for this effect the most.
I would recommend this for anyone experiencing skin issues. I think that if you like a natural look, and a quick application, then this is a good thing to try out. Just bear in mind that this only comes in 2 shades; #21 (fair) and #23 (natural). The #21 is more lighter than the #23, and I think the #23 would suit people with the range of NC20-25. If you would like to know more about this product, Bubzbeauty (youtuber) made a terrific video on it. Do check it out!!
:) hope this helps!!
