Sat, Nov. 17th, 2007, 02:43 pm Review of the Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream
been using the Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF20++ for a week and here's the review:
1) Oil Control is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than the Skin Food Gingko Green BB Cream! Its almost comparable, if not, slightly better than Missha M. 2) Though its slightly thicker than the Gingko Green BB Cream but I reckon this is the reason why the coverage is slightly better than Gingko Green too. 3) Blendibility is still rather alright considering the fact that the texture is slightly thicker than Gingko Green. 4) Love its smell! 5) The only drawback is that it does not give a dewy look as compared to the Skin Food Gingko Green BB.
On the whole, (to me) its really comparable to BRTC Perfect Blemish Balm. This is the perfect knock-off if you can't get your hands on the BRTC Perfect Blemish Balm. Oil control is good, coverage is good, texture/blendibility is managable. Put aside the not-getting-the-dewy-look, I super love this and I think I shall get a backup of this. -grins-
Here's the list of ingredients for those who might be interested:
Oh, just in case if you dont know, this Aloe Sun BB Cream costs slightly more than the Gingko Green BB Cream. Gingko Green is retailing for S$31.20 while this Aloe Sun BB Cream retails for S$38.
I can't wait for the launch of the Skin Food Mushroom BB Cream and Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream!
Hi, I was searching everything about BB cream and found out your blog here. I bet you have the best and most completed review for BB cream. Could you give me some advice to get one? It seems that you highly recommend Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF20++. I have normal/combination skin with acnes sometimes and acnes scars always. I use MAC NC25-30. Which shade do you recommend since there are two choices? Thanks a lot.
if you can get your hands on coogi flowertox 3action super bb, try that. its very similar to skin food aloe sun without the silicones that tends to break out on alot of people (i have no problem with that though). :)
Hihi. I came across your blog when doing some research on bb cream.. and WOW you have so many.. @___@. I'm wondering if this skinfood aloe sun SPF20 will clog pores?? I'm scared that it will break me out. what about the green GIngko one?? will that one clog pores too?
I currently have missha M vita. seems a bit oily on me so i want to try something else.
Thank you very much.
i will check for your reply here. or please send reply to email@example.com
hehe won't buy them until i get your advice.. ^___^

Hi! I've been using the Aloe BB Cream too in #2. I just wanna share that it really is the BEST foundation in terms of making you look very fresh and NATURAL!!!!!!!!! BUT, it was the technique of applying it that made me get the most of my aloe bb cream.
I used to just put it one like a moisturizer, like rub it in, but that left my face looking a bit whitish, uneven and gray.
Then I tried this:
Put a GENEROUS (like a big pea size) amount on your finger tips. Then rub with your other hand's fingers briskly for 5 seconds. The rubbing heats the cream and makes a flat even layer on the fingers. Once you smooth it over you face, finish of by PATTING the remaining cream on your fingers to the sides of your nose, under eyes then blend outwards to cheeks and forehead. I find that putting less on the fore head looks natural. Then put a TINY amount of you fingers again, rubbing then using your ring finger, pat lightly under your eyes like concealer. No need to apply a second layer all over face.
My bb cream NEVER works unless i do this procedure of RUBBING briskly and PATTING. It may look abit white after you apply it, but once your cram sets in (like after 3 minutes) it would blend it with your skin. A tip also is get the #2 shade if you are fair, yet tan easily. But if you are really white and fair, get the #1 shade. The #1 shade doesn't work for me. It's like for girls that have super white skin IMO. I hope this works for u guys too :)
Mon, Jan. 19th, 2009 01:19 am (UTC) (Anonymous): Side Effect of BB Cream
For those enthusiat of BB Cream out there, I have use BB Cream for 2 weeks and my skin started to peel off and dry. Don't let the advertisement gimmick fool you. The BB Cream manufacturer did not specify the side effect of this product errespective of whatever barand it is. I have stop using this creame since 18/1/2009. I was using Skin 79 (Gold) BB Cream for the last 2 weeks.
Hi! I'm totally new to BB cream and your reviews give a very thorough knowledge :) I want to try BRTC as they claimed that it's the best brand of BB cream, like their complexion totally improved. But it's so hard to reach BRTC!! :(
I'm just wondering is it only BRTC BB cream that is spectacular or it works the same for all other brands? Like BB cream said to have healing properties. If it is, I might as well get to SkinFood store that's available everywhere here rather than having a hard time stocking up BRTC after each tube dries off :P
Your opinion??? After trying so much of them :P Thanks!
Thank you for all your reviews of different BB creams. It is very informative. I don't have any idea what girls are raving about bb creams and reading your posts, made me want to try too. I will give Skin Food Aloe BB cream a try as I have combination skin and I need one that has really good oil control. - France
Thanks for your lovely reviews. I'm NC20-25 (neutralish undertones) - if I only want to order one of the Skinfood Aloe BB creams, should it be Shade 1 or 2? I don't want to go too light, and there's no shops to test it in the US. Thanks!
Hi, i love u'r review of bb creams.. Can u pick the best bb cream for me? I have a super oily skin yet very sensitive. *aaarggh!* Skinfood Aloe irritate my skin so bad! I don't really know which one the culprit, the silicone or the fragrance. I need BB Cream with superb oil control but gave me dewy-glow finish (not shimmering / visible glittering). I want to try Bornskin Total System Premium, but I'm afraid since from what I've heard the main ingredients is silicone. Thank youuuuu....!
I have this product, and it works really well with my skin tone and blends nicely. I love the consistency compared to the Skin Food Gingko Green BB Cream and the Missha Perfect Cover B.B Cream, which I also have, and the shade of the Aloe BB cream is much better for me than the Missha one (I use the lightest of both). But one thing I'm wondering, is if other people have noticed an improvement of their acne/blemishes while or after using their creams? I have frequent breakouts, so I try not to suffocate my skin with too much make up on top, but I notice during the day of wearing the BB cream, my skin gradually gets oilier and the make up fades, and my breakouts get sensitive.. I usually have very dry skin, but I moisturise a lot and always use a make up remover and cleanser after each day, but I see no improvement in my acne/blemishes. When one spot goes, another appears. Has anyone else experienced the same? I'm just wondering, as the Blemish Balm is for such skin, but isn't really helping me ): Also, does anyone know if the BB Cream is non-comedogenic? As I've heard this can help reduce the occurance of blemishes. I just feel stuck in and endless loop of trying to treat the blemishes, or cover them with make up. I've tried improving my diet, eating healthier and drinking more water, getting more sleep, trying to relax more, moisturise my skin a lot, but I don't know what to do to cure my skin >.< Maybe it's time to try and get a doctor's help with antibiotics, I'm not sure. Sorry this post is so long. Thankyou for this review, also :)
