It's mini review time! I have accumulated a lot of samples recently, and I really want to try them all out and share my thoughts on them, so expect more mini reviews in the future. ^^;
I have a sample of a BB cream today!
When I first looked at this sample packet, it had absolutely no English indication of the brand or what it contained! The only English was made in Korea on the back, So my only clue was the two Chinese characters on the front, my Chinese reading skills is minimal, -.- but I vaguely understood it to be pronounced as "mei si". Then I opened the packet and it looked like BB cream, so I Googled "mei si BB cream", and it turns out to be from Missha! :D
But then thanks to Leah, it's actually called Cho Bo Yang!
Anyways, enough rambling, please read on too see my first impression of this BB cream and before and after pictures! ^o^
I love the background pattern!
Before and after BB cream.
I have used this BB cream twice and I feel this BB cream from Missha is on the thicker side, and feels quite heavy. It is also cakey, especially compared to the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB, which I use the most nowadays. But it doesn't show unless you see it up close. But the coverage is really nice! As you can see from the before and after pictures, my freckles and redness are all covered! :D
But one really huge downside is that this has no oil control at all. I my skin is usually not oily, only around the T-zone it can get's a bit shiny during the warm seasons. But with this BB cream after about 2 hours my face was very shiny for both times that I was wearing this, and I had powder on too! D:
The scent is a light floral scent, but it also reminds me of red bean paste haha.
Will I Purchase the Full Product?
No, because it makes my face oily, and it's very thick. :(
The only good thing about this is that it has high coverage, and it stayed on my face for quite a long time. So if you have dry skin or like more coverage, this might be for you. :P
Do you like heavy coverage or light coverage BB cream? ^^
It really depends for me, most of the time I like light coverage, but if I get redness or pimples, heavy is better. :)
Thank you for reading!
See you next post! :D
