Skin79 White Beblesh Balm BB Cream Review

BB cream has been popular for years, but I was never on the band wagon. It’s not like I haven’t tried any BB creams yet, I just don’t find them work that great for me. I’ve had Missha and Hanskin before, they were either too oily or looked weird on me. Recently I got a tube of Skin79 sample from one of my beauty magazines. The brand happened to be the sponsor of a Korean drama I’m currently watching, Baby Faced Beauty. So I decide to give it a try. Now I’ve been using it for almost a week, let’s see how it goes.

Normally BB Cream stands for Blemish Balm Cream, but this is the first time I see Skin79 uses the term Beblesh Balm. Is this a real word? The packaging says “Functional skin beautifier that maintains the skin white, clean and transparent.” Does it do all the tricks?

Upon squeezing a bit on the back of my hand, it seemed very similar to a regular foundation to me. It doesn’t look gray or dull like the other BB creams I tried. So far so good.

This is right after blending out. The coverage was pretty good. Though it looked a bit dead white, my skin is well evened out. There’s a bit of herbal floral scent that’s quite subtle and it fainted over time.

10 minutes later, the color melted into my skin and it looked even more natural. It did brighten up my skin tone and give it a dewy sheen.

Just by using it for several days, I find myself start to like it. It doesn’t break me out or give me a lot of shine like Missha did. The color looks natural, doesn’t seem too heavy though the coverage is superb. Staying power is also great, as it stay put for 5+ hours before blotting. The whitening effect works well, like the description says, giving me a clean and transparent look. Overall I think it’s a great product. Have you tried any BB creams? Which one is your favorite?

    Right now, I’m really liking the new Garnier BB Cream. I’m NC30 because of all my Oman sun exposure, and I have a little bit of trouble with standard Asian BB creams, which are too light for me now.

    what an awesome find!
    I’m scared to try other BB creams ever since I had a bad experience with the first and only BB cream I tried. It broke me out like crazy!

      Oh that sucks. Maybe this one will work out for you. It didn’t even give me any breakouts like Missha!

        I remember for sure the Missha M Perfect Cover one gave a grayish tint. It did go away after half an hour, but still.

    I love Lancome BB Base (Japanese release). Tried Boscia and both Dr Jart+ from Sephora.
    I liked Boscia, but Dr Jart+ was horrible on me. Shiny, gray, pore exposing….

      Never heard of Dr Jart+ but Lancome has a BB base? I am going to go find the Lancome one.

        Lancome has BB cream but for Asian market, friend sent it to me from Tokyo.
        They all have BB creams in Asia – Dior, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown… you name it!

    Yes, all of them! Do you have any Japanese beauty magazine? They always advertise them!
    I don’t remember exact name but it’s from Dior Snow White line.

      I have all 3 beauty magazines for each month but never paid attention. I do remember seeing Dior Snow White line somewhere. Time to read magazines again.
