review: Missha Perfect Cover B.B. Cream

Perfect Cover B.B. Cream
SPF40 PA+++

"MISSHA M Perfect Cover B.B. Cream offers a novel skincare concept with B.B. cream which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin-cover ability and prevents skin-aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties" (as it states on the product package)

--- WOW! Really? What more could you ask for?

Why I bought it:
During the summer my skin started acting up ESPECIALLY on my face. It was the worst time EVER, to the point where I cried myself to sleep every night. I'm all healed now and I'll save my skin-disaster story for another post. 
My skin was red, itchy and very flaky. I know I probably shouldn't have been using makeup on my face that time anyway but I was desperate to cover up the redness. I've read reviews on how this miracle BB cream covers redness and also moisturizes and stays moisturized throughout the day. Some people even claimed it healed their skin. Desperately seeking some kind of makeup cure, I bought it.

The product:

This product comes in 4 shades. No. 13 (milky beige),  21 (light beige), 23 (natural beige), and 31 (golden beige).  I got mine in No. 23. At the store though,  I only saw No. 21 & 23.

It comes in a pump tube which I like.

⓵ When product comes out, it's just little bit. But that bit actually goes a long way.
⓶ When you first spread the product out,
it turns into a grayish tone but soon afterwards blends into the skin tone.
⓷ It does blend well though!

The verdict:
When i tried it at the store I was sold but when I tried it on the next morning I realized it was a bit too heavy for me and the florally fragrance that I thought was nice and light smelling was a bit too strong for me.
This is just me however. I did like how it blended well with my skin tone but as for coverage, it was like other BB creams I have tried in the past.  Did it cover up my redness? Yeah, it did a little but all in all I honestly would rather stick to Maybelline's BB Mineral Mousse (my review on it here).

I bought this product during the summer time and I've only used it a couple of times. I am planning on trying this product out longer after my Maybelline BB Mineral Mousse runs out. ~

                   (Price isn't TOO bad, but I think the price could be brought down a bit. I'm guessing it's the brand.)
                    (Nothing special, but it still covers well)
                    (Goes on smoothly it's just pretty thick)
                    (I think it would be better if it was non-fragrant. It's not a bad smell but it's a bit too strong for my taste.)

If anyone has tried this product I'd love to hear your thoughts on this! 
Did this BB cream work well for you? 
Did you have the same problems as me?

If there are any other questions or you'd like to hear my thoughts on anything else about this product, feel free to ask!

UPDATE (02/08/2012)
So I gave this BB cream another chance! And I have to say I've grown to like it. The floral scent doesn't bother as much and actually, a little bit of this product goes a long way. I do start off with a primer before putting this product on. I also found that this goes on smoother (for me) when applied using my fingers rather than a brush or a sponge. 


  1. I've been curious on how Missha bb cream would work on my skin. They're having a sale so...maybe I'll try one out. Thanks for the review!

  2. what type of skin do you have? dry? oily? combo? if you have oily or skin then this might be too heavy and might even cause problems i think. dry skin (not overly dry to the point of flaking) should be okay. combo i think would be almost perfect. give it a try and please let me know how it works for you!

  3. I always wanted to try this but I have so many BB creams in stock it's ridiculous D: it'll never end!

  4. LOL yeah this is so-so. if you don't mind the strong floral scent either ><

  5. I actually use this everyday as my foundation! ^^ Funny, because I thought the coverage was very LIGHT (there were acne stars that I wanted to hide but couldn't haha!) rather than heavy. I continue to use it because I don't have a problem with it, but I don't see anything special about it either... Sometimes I wonder if it's all hype because BB creams haven't given me any miracles yet... ^^;
