Progress Update: BB Cream Testing

By Voxy  

In response to my own curiosity and that of my Loyal Readerz and Vixenz, I have been testing some Korean BB creams to see how they compare with what we are starting to see stateside.

I ordered creams from two different brands (Missha and Skin79) via eBay and Amazon. I started testing with the Missha, but after three days of an atypical and ever-increasing number of whiteheads I think I am going to have to stop testing that one, at least until my skin heals. This does not please me, as I like the product otherwise. Ordinarily I’m not prone to breakouts from products, but all evidence points to this cream as being the culprit.

In the meanwhile, I’m going to try to continue using the Dr. Jart BB cream I reviewed previously, since I don’t think I have trouble with that one. Once my skin is back to normal, I might try the Missha again or the Skin79.

    What are BB creams?

      They are multitasking products that supposedly combine moisturizing and skin-repairing benefits with primer and foundation. They are hugely popular in Asia, especially in Korea. They’ve just recently hit the US markets, and I reviewed one here:

      Some people commented on that post and were curious about other BB creams — and I was too, so I ordered some Korean brands and one of them has broken me out. Boo.
