I find it very important to keep my face moisturized and protected from the sun. Apart from that, it’s quite hard to put on make up without a good base. I end up having to apply three different things to help achieve these everytime, as tedious as that may sound. I’m very glad I got to try Missha Shiny BB Cream. I’ve been a big fan ever since, and it’s saved me plenty of time.
There are a lot of things to love about this product. First of all, it’s your moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation, and mineral powder all rolled into one. In a day, I just need to put on my favorite moisturizer and then my Missha BB cream before I put on light makeup. No more foundation, no more mineral powder.
I love how light the texture is to the touch, and how it doesn’t feel greasy on the face. It doesn’t clog your pores, and it’s very easy to spread. Just apply pea-size amounts on your forehead, cheeks, chin, and neck; lightly spread it evenly all over your face and neck. It’s really smooth and it’s absorbed very quickly, leaving you with a soft, powdery feel on your face.
Missha as a foundation is an excellent base for makeup. I’ve never had to worry about having a “cake face.” It make your skin look fairer, too. It also has pearl powder that makes your skin glow – literally!
Friends and strangers have come up to me to ask why my skin shimmers under the light. When I first used it, I was admittedly apprehensive about perhaps looking like a die-hard Edward Cullen fan. I was wrong. It does shimmer under the light enough for people to notice, but it does not look unnatural. It makes your skin look really healthy and vibrant on the contrary. Yes, that’s how wonderful and amazing Missha BB Cream is.
This product cost me Php 1,800 when I bought it. I’ve had it for almost a year, and there’s still plenty left in the tube. I highly recommend this product, and it works best with light to fair skin. Overall, I am very, very happy with this BB cream.
