Review: Innisfree Mineral Skin BB Cream

I got this BB cream in a swap and I must say that I love it. At first I thought that it gives too much coverage, but I learned how to work with it.


It comes in a 40 ml tube, but I had it for a couple of months and there's still 1/3 left even if I used it daily.
It has SPF 40, which is a great thing.
I also read that it contains natural ingredients, but I can't check that anywhere because it's written in Korean.

It costs about $20 on Ebay, which is a bit pricier than the other BB creams I tried.
But I think it's worth it.

On my hand

This is the amount that could cover two faces (or give you some serious coverage).  I got distracted and didn't realize that I squeezed too much out of the tube.


Coverage:  Full
Texture: Thick but Creamy
Shade:  #1 (lightest)
Fragrance:  Herbal maybe?
Oil-Control:  So-So.
Dewy or Matte (finish): Dewy
 
 
 Some before and after pictures

I really like it, in terms of coverage. At the time I got it, I didn't need it, but now that my skin is well messed up, it comes handy!
It looks really natural, and it's the perfect shade for me. 


Pros:
+The scent
+Coverage
+A little bit goes a long way
+The color is perfect match for me
+Has SPF 40
+Comes in a tube which is very hygienic
+I like the minimalistic design

Cons:
-Oil Control (tho it's still better than the SkinFood Ginko/Aloe and Mushroom BB Cream)
-Ingredients written in Korean

I think that this is one of the best BB creams I've ever had. I'd love it even more, if I didn't have to blot my face every 5 hours or so. Tho with a good setting powder the problem is easily fixed.

Rating:  5/5  ♥ 
Price: 4/5  ♥  (about 20$) 
 
Overall: I do like it a lot. It has great coverage, some oil control (I have combination skin with an oily Tzone) and it's the perfect match for my skin tone. The scent it good, especially for me because I hate perfumed scents in BB creams. I think this is one of those rare BB creams that have absolutely good coverage. The texture is creamy, tho on the thicker side, so I apply mine with a a stippling brush for a more natural result.
I think I will buy it again, when I run out of it, because honestly it's good!

That looks great!
How do you put on your BB Cream? I just got mine in the mail and tried it yesterday. Do you pat it on with a finger like you do with a concealer? Or do you rub it on? I find that when I rubbed it on, it doesn't tend to show....

Julianne: Thanks! I apply it with a stippling brush. I used to apply it with my fingers (just blend it in , like rubbing it in), but then I got this life saviour stippling brush and now this is pretty much it!
