Missha M Perfect Cover B.B Cream
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.
Description taken from the product packaging.

It looks more than half empty, missing its cap, and slightly abused because I've had this for awhile now. I got this baby via Girltalk's Beauty Bazaar pre-loved... I even have a post the day I got it in my old blog. I forgot how much I bought it for but I'm pretty sure it wasn't more than 500PHP (or $10). The US Missha site sells it for $29 and according to my trusted ebay seller in the Philippines, it costs 920PHP for this size.

What I Like:
  • Has a pump! Super Hygienic.
  • 50 ML!!! A regular foundation only has 30 ML.
  • The consistency is light and almost watery but will not drip down if you place it on the back of your hand.
  • Moisturizing even without applying moisturizer prior to this.
  • Does not feel heavy the skin at all! Feels like you're not wearing makeup.
  • Medium to almost full coverage with just one pump! No pits, barely any bumps, no lines, and covers my post-acne scars better than foundation (makes it look more natural).
  • My skin tone is improved significantly! I look better instantly!
  • My skin looks brighter and glowing.
  • No cakey-ness at all! Blends in like a dream. 
  • SPF 42 PA++. 
  • I think my skin became whiter and better when I used this back then.
  • Long-lasting even in the Philippine setting.
  • Your skin but waaaaaaay better look!
What I don't like:
  • The price! I was lucky to buy this, you know. I was online most of the time checking the forums often to see an interesting buy come up. Things like these sell like hot cakes once its out on the market! I got it at a low price and it was almost full! The price provided by my trusted ebay seller is actually not bad in comparison to the price the US Missha site offers! But if you are a student, this may be quite expensive (been there! done that! LOL).
  • The shade! No. 21 is the lightest shade... I'm an NC43! Sadly, my MAC Minirelize Skinfinish isn't dark enough to make this fit the rest of my body at the moment. But I did use this a lot last year when I was really fair (I decided to tan this year).
  • It oxidizes over time. This could be a good thing if you're a little darker than NO. 21... It starts out really white then it will match your skin as minutes pass by (unless you're too tan like me!).
  • The smell. I heard there were many complaints to this strong scent but I actually don't mind.
  • It may cause breakouts. It blends into the skin so well that it looks like second skin but if it is not washed off properly then a break out may occur. Although I never broke out!
  • The white cast in flash photography. Due to its high content of SPF, it reflects white when a flash goes off in pictures.
  • If you have dry patches, it may be emphasized. I never had a problem with this in the Philippines, though.
  • Oil control is average. You'll blot in a few hours but not to the point it gets unbearably greasy and disgusting.

Swatches: Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in No. 21
 When I say oxidize, I meant to say it changes color due to the reaction to your skin. 
The light beige creamy substance turns grayish after 30 mins.


Read more for actual pictures of me using the BB Cream!

Most pictures were taken with natural light. 
My skin is really bad (I know). 
My face is actually lighter than the rest of my tan body.
I was trying to perfect my eyebrows as I took pictures, by the way.
Excuse my goofy hair & face.
And welcome to my messy room!

Bare face.
Fresh application of the BB Cream.
BOO! Ghostly white effect in flash picture!
After a couple of minutes.
I hope I didn't scare any of you off with my pictures (LOL).
And I hope you can see how the Bb cream settled  in nicely on my face after a couple of minutes...
I basically love this product. Its sad I'm too dark now.

TIPS:
  • When using this product, wait for it to oxidize before going out. 
  • You can set it with a powder that matches your skin color, but its in too light of a shade for me even with a powder. 
  • Do not use this (especially at night!) when pictures will be taken, unless you want have memories looking like a ghost.
  • It has been recommended to use the cleansing oil that comes in the same line of this Bb cream to take it off completely and avoid breakouts... But I never bought it, I simply washed my face well enough to avoid breakouts back then. 
  • Please do not use as skin care and sleep with it (or any other Bb cream!) on your face over night! This is still makeup despite its many wonderful skin enhancing properties. 
  • And great news for tan ladies, the US Missha site is now selling this Bb cream in No. 31!

Reviewing this Bb cream reminds me why I should stop using foundation... it so beats the heck out of foundations when it comes to a great complexion, natural look, and everyday use. I was in a BB cream craze last year and so I hoarded the heck I could back then. And I don't regret it at all! Now, I'm pretty much good to go even if I have no longer any access to directly purchasing authentic and affordable Bb creams. My mom, sisters, and I have enough to go around! Watch out for more Bb cream reviews! :)

    1. Hi Pauline! No, I don't use it as much because I have other bb creams to use. When I buy my bb creams in the Philippines, I check out online shops. Now, I trying out bb creams here in the US drugstores or Sephora :)
