Thu, Jul. 16th, 2009, 03:51 pm Missha M Perfect Cover & Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream
Remember last week I mentioned I received 2 BB Creams in the mail?
These are the 2 BB Creams from Gingerdip! I have the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in 50ml which is a pump dispenser but I have since completed the tube and that was #21 the lighter shade. I'm a little tanner after my recent trip to Bali so I decided to get shade #23 which is darker to mix the fairer BB Creams especially the Etude House Precious Mineral Sheer Silky Skin which is way too fair for me. I also gotten my hands on the Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream which has been really popular lately.
In my first review of this Missha M Perfect Cover, I did not manage to get the ingredient list as it was entirely in Korean. I'm glad that they have since revamp their packaging to include the ingredient list in English.
Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream (#23 Natural Beige) Coverage : Full coverage Texture : The previous tubes I own was pretty thick in texture but surprizingly, this tube wasn't. Its pretty managable and easier to blend as compared to my previous tube. Is the smaller tube more liquified or did they reformulate their formulation? I can't confirm this. Shade : #23 Natural Beige is pretty dark. I'm losing my tan and its a little too dark for me but suitable to mix it with my Etude House Precious Mineral Sheer Silky Skin BB Cream. On its own, I reckon it might suit those with a skin tone of NC35? Fragrance : It has a very faint-quite insignificant flora scent. You probably will not notice it if you do not bring it close enough to your nose. Oil-Control: Oil control isn't the best unless you have a good oil control primer / powder. Its suitable for those who have normal - combi skin. Dewy-ness: It does have a very slight dewy finish to it. Not overly dewy but just a subtle glow. Overall Comments: This is my #4 favourite BB Cream due to its high SPF of 42 and has an extremely full coverage. It comes with anti-aging / anti-wrinkle properties too. What more to ask for? Maybe that oil control could be a little better? But I'm not really complaining as I am able to manage the oil with my all time favourite Maybelline Dream Matte Powder!
Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream. This has been quite a popular BB Cream lately so I had to try it.
There isn't an Ingredient List on the packaging but it did have 2 words on the side, 'Tea Tree'. I read some reviews that it does contain Tea Tree but I wanted to try it since I didn't think the Tree Tree Oil is probably a small % in the formulation and it will probably not cause any adverse effect on my Tea Tree Allergic Skin.
It comes with a pump applicator which I totally adore!
Sadly, it broke me out. Yes it did. I hereby confirm that my skin is sensitive to any amount of Tea Tree Oil. I used it for only 2 days and my forehead, cheeks and the side of chin started breaking out like crazy. I have since stopped using it and its being well loved by my sister. I wanted to pass it on to Bestie but my younger sister has just jumped onto the whole BB Cream bandwagon and is loving this Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream. *Those who are sensitive to Tea Tree, stay clear of the entire Innisfree Trouble Care series. They all contain Tea Tree.
Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream Coverage : Sheer - Medium (buildable) Texture : Relatively easy to blend. Shade : Suits those between NC20-25 which is the normal for BB Creams. Fragrance : A very faint Tea Tree scent. Upon application, it dissappears. Oil-Control: Oil control is pretty decent, you'll notice a little shine only after 5 hours? Thats pretty average for BB Creams. Dewy-ness: It does have a very slight dewy finish to it. More matte than dewy I would say. Overall Comments: I totally understand why this BB Cream is so popular. Its a very fuss-free BB Cream that even comes with an SPF of 27 (perfect for those who are lazy with sunscreens like myself). Coverage is decent, so is the oil control and the best part is the skin healing property of Tea Tree to treat and heal blemishes. If only it contained Witch Hazel or Salicylic acid instead of Tea Tree, and it'll be one of my favourite BB Creams too. Those who are not sensitive to Tea Tree and would like to treat your acne prone skin, do give this Innisfree Trouble Care BB Cream a try. It might change your whole perspective about BB Cream being just a liquid foundation with skin care properties.
*Innisfree has another 2 BB Creams other than the Innisfree Trouble Care. InnisfreeMineral Skin BB Cream that has SPF of 40, formulated with organic lavender extract and the Innisfree Fresh BB Sun Block Balm(read that this contains Witch-Hazel and Rosemary and has an SPF of 50!). Maybe I should try these 2 huh?
Oh no..Missha #23 suits NC35?? I'm NC20-25 (Missha Watery perfect match) but I tried shade #21 but it was a tad bit lighter than my face. I was hoping #23 would be a perfect match for me. Do you think it best that I just stick with #21 and have a lighter face? Haha
BTW so sorry Innisfree broke you out. Hope all is well now! ^_^

Hi, thanks for all the great information on BB cream. I would like to ask which of the (2) BB cream would you recommend on a very oily skin, blackheads everywhere person, the regular Missha BB cream or the Missha Watery BB cream?
And do you have any products that you can recommend to us for getting rid of blackheads and the massive oiliness?
I see that you really love Maybelline dream matte powder, so I am going to give it a try. This is my first time using makeup, so I like to research any makeup products that can be gentle on the skin.
Hi! Great review, i'm wondering, does the missha BB cream oxidize? because i'm an NC 30-35 and i'm afraid it will oxidize into a darker shade by the end of the day and look like a mask. ): thanks alot!

Thank you for posting an ingredients list of the perfect cover bb cream :D but anywho, you might not know the answer but if you do: I have eczema which is really dry skin and my skin is kinda sensitive too. Would the M missha perfect cover bb cream in #23 irritate my skin?
Or do you know a place to order a sample before a buy the whole thing??

i'm looking for a bb cream, what would you suggest? - moisturizes and has the finish of a moisturizer, since i've tried makeup for oilier skin and it looks noticeable close up. - medium coverage and looks like my skin but better, more even, and moisturized. - less thick than missha perfect cover, something suitable to just slap on all over my face like moisturizer or serum. - good match for my shade of what i think is nc20-25 with yellow undertones. but missha's 21 is kind of light so it makes my redness look like pink undertones. thank you
Have you tried the Missha Signature Real BB cream? I was trying to look for a review on it but could not find any. And also I've tried some of the Skin 79 BB cream and found that Missha tend to have darker shades. Like their new color for the Perfect cover (#27, #31).
I think I have the same problem like you. I found out my skin was getting all these tiny bumps out of nowhere ever since I started using products with tea tree oil. So yeah, it was stressing me out. By the way, what's your favourite BB Cream of all time so far that doesn't give you any break out and also has a very light shade? :)
