Hello! Hope you had a fine weekend. x)
Today I have the Hanskin Mineral Magic BB Cream review. This is my second time trying out a Hanskin product, the first being the Hanskin Nutriative Sheet Mask, which I found to be soothing and high quality too. ^o^

Anyways, Let's move on to the review shall we? :3
Simple brown packaging. :3
I really like how even though this is a miniature sized tube, it's still packaged so nicely within a box.
The tube inside. The colour looks like chocolate *A*
"A formula with minerals and intensive moist, mild
and very easy to smooth out.
Low irritation especially good for sensitive skin.
A natural concealer infusing and retaining skin moist.
Deliver light and natural make effect."
- Description from Kocomall
The colour is on the light side for a BB Cream, a light beige. I would say it has a neutral to cool undertone. ~_~
It does blend very smoothly into my skin. ^^
Bare face and after with BB cream.
I found this to be very smooth and creamy, but light as well. It doesn't leave any stickiness behind, and just just glides on my face so well! It doesn't feel like I'm wearing a BB cream at all! I was really pleasantly surprised by this! I actually wore this without moisturizer underneath, and my face did not feel dry at all. I have combination skin, and I didn't have problems with parts of my face being too oily or dry. :D
The colour is a light beige, quite light for a BB cream. I would say the undertone is cool to neutral although I'm not too sure. It doesn't look grey or yellowish. At first I thought this would be too light for my skin tone, but it turns out it blended in quite nicely. However, as you can see from the before/after picture above, the coverage is very light. It covered just some of my redness and freckles, so it's definitely not full coverage.
I wore this for about 7 hours, and since it's very sheer, it's very difficult to tell when it started to wear off. But when I wiped my face with a cleansing cloth, there was definitely some residue left, and I can still notice a difference. So it stayed on for pretty long. I was also really impressed by it's oil-control, usually after 7 hours, in warm weathers, my nose would be shiny if I didn't use powder, but with this even after 7 hours without powder, my nose was relatively matte. Moisture wise, my skin did not feel dry the whole day. However, this may be due to the humid weather right now.
This doesn't have any scent at all! At most it's a creamy lotion scent. :P
I really like this BB cream for it's light texture, oil-control, and long wear! Although my skin is not too sensitive I do like that it has no scent. The only downfall is that the coverage is very sheer, but if you have great skin this would probably be perfect for you! If you want a higher coverage, this is probably not for that great, unless you wear some sort of extra coverage such as a base underneath it. I would also recommend this to people who have sensitive skin. :D
- Light texture
- Easy to blend
- Good oil-control
- Long wear
- No scent
- Very sheer (could be a pro)
- May be too light to darker skintones
