MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream Review
What is BB cream? BB cream is essentially a product that sits in between both skincare and makeup product. They are versatile in the sense that they come in different shades, provide coverage and protection while delivering benefits like anti-wrinkle, brightening and illuminating skin. BB creams are not tinted moisturizers either because they provide additional benefits on top of moisturising your skin.
If you have not tried Korean BB Cream or beauty balms, you’re missing out! This MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream is one of the best BB creams for barely-there coverage that you can use for all skin types, and our BONIIK team is here to review it today! These versatile Korean makeup products are used instead of foundation to help provide light coverage to conceal blemishes, acne, redness or irritated skin without being too heavy on the skin. In addition, they often come with sun protection to help protect your skin. Without further delay, let’s jump into Missha BB cream review!
MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream is formulated with anti-wrinkle and skin barrier enhancing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides. The combination of these ingredients help smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture to prevent the product from clumping. Apart from that, it contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which provides sun protection to shield the skin from harmful UV rays - a common cause of premature aging signs.
Our BONIIK team found that this functional bb cream doubles as both sunscreen and a makeup product, so if you are someone who prefers ‘skip care’ as compared to the 10 step Korean skincare routine, this bb cream is definitely for you!
MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream has a silky-smooth, luxurious texture that spreads easily onto your skin without caking or clumping. Our BONIIK team loved how smoothly it applies and its lightweight texture that wraps around the skin well. It also comes in 2 different shades to match our skin tone for the perfect level of light coverage especially on the days where we don’t feel like wearing a foundation.
Apart from its smooth, blendable texture MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream does not turn grey, ashy or oxidise easily which is beneficial especially when you need longer lasting coverage. To ensure that your BB cream stays perfect for longer durations, our team found that applying a small amount of your tinted face powder can help your makeup stay fresh and luminous. Simply dust some of your favourite facial powder using a soft brush just after applying the bb cream.
How to Incorporate into Your Routine
Just like any other Korean makeup product, you can apply your MISSHA BB cream as a first step after your Korean skincare routine is complete. Simply dispense an adequate amount of product and spread it gently all over your face. We recommend applying in thin layers for a more even, smooth and flawless coverage.
A common question we get asked is, how to apply bb cream correctly? Our BONIIK team members found that using a foundation brush or stippling brush, beauty blender, sponge or even your fingertips will work just fine. So it all comes down to your personal preference! Those with drier skin found that using a beauty blender or sponge was a great option as it can cover larger surface areas quickly and blends well without leaving any streaky finish. On the other hand, for more precise application and fuller coverage, you can go for the brush.
We love the flawless and smooth finish of this BB cream that applies like a dream! This MISSHA BB cream is used for covering up dark spots, imperfections lightly, as well as provide the skin with adequate sun protection before heading out. While this BB cream works well for all skin types, those with dry skin found that they still need moisturiser with bb cream as it helps create an evenly textured base and prevent the product from settling into fine lines.
So if you ask, are bb creams really worth the hype? We would say YES for sure! Add BB creams into your Korean beauty routine for effortlessly flawless complexion. You can buy MISSHA BB Cream in Australia from K-beauty retailers like BONIIK - the best Korean beauty, skincare and makeup store!
