I hope eveyone enjoyed your weekend.
Today, I am going to talk about BB Cream which stands for blemish balm cream. I am very new to this. I only tried it last year when I attended the Tsuya-tsuya workshop in 2009. Most BB creams that I came across are produced in Korea.
Recently, my Korean friend gave me a brand new Missha M Perfect Cover BB cream. She is such a sweet girl. At the same time, my mom also bought the Lilan Vital Magical Makeover BB Cream from Cosway. Both are SPF 42. I got color no 21 for Missha BB cream.
I have conducted a mini experiment. I put the creams on blotting paper and check them after several hours and on the next day. The result is shown below.
Lilan Vital BB Cream Ingredients:
At 11.35am, (just after 5 mins of application) , you can see that the oil stains start showing
At 6.45pm, the oil stains spread further
On the next day, the oil stains spread even further.
Conclusion of my mini experiment:
Both Missha and Lilan Vital BB Cream are equally as oily as shown in the experiment above.
What is the outcome when I apply on my oily face?
As some of you may know, I have very oily skin. I have applied both BB cream on my face on different occasions and regret to inform you that my face turned super oily after 2 hours even after I set it with loose powder. (I think you can fry eggs on my face....that oily, I am serious)
I have searched the net and read about Lioele Triple Solution BB Cream with SPF 30 (USD 28). According to the reviewer, it is very suitable for oily and acne prone skin. She claimed that her skin conditioned improved a lot after using this product. Has anyone with oily skin tried this? Pls share.
After conducting this mini experiment and testing both BB creams on my face, I really do not feel like trying on BB cream anymore. If you have oily skin and know of any BB creams that will not make oily skin more oily, please share with me and other readers too.
