I’ve been loving trying out Korean products for quite sometime now. I love how effective their products are especially their skincare line. A lot of positive reviews are in the internet raving for korean brands.
Althea Korea is an online retail store for Korean products and there where I bought my recent favorite BB cream, the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream.
I love using BB cream instead of foundation in my face because it’s lightweight and very easy to apply. Today, I am going to give my first impression review to this BB cream, the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream.
“Originally developed as a salve for patients after laser treatment, BB Cream’s soothing and regenerative properties were adapted for cosmetics to improve skin while providing coverage. The M Perfect Cover BB Cream is Missha’s most popular product with over 30 million sold worldwide. Combining cosmetics with skin care, this product promotes natural-looking coverage while providing sun protection, treating dark spots, and preventing wrinkles. The M Perfect Cover BB Cream is suitable for all skin types and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.”
This BB cream claims that it gives excellent coverage while healing visible wrinkles and blemishes. It also claims to prevent skin aging through effective whitening and anti-wrinkle properties.
So this is my first time to order at Althea Korea Philippines. Eversince, I am so excited to try korean products that is why when I heard of this, I can’t wait to have my first order.
What I love about Althea Korea are their skincare products. As we all know, Korean products nowadays are very popular and a must have! Plus, they offer free shipping for orders P999 and above! Amazing right? And that is sent directly from Korea!
I ordered only four products to try. These are the No Sebum Mineral Powder, The Style 4D Mascara, Rice Wash Off Mask, and the Perfect Cover BB Cream (Shade #23).
Finding the right foundation for your skin type involves a lot of effort and trial and error. As we all know, a beautiful base is essential for a beautiful makeup look. First thing to consider if the foundation you choose has the right balance between not enough and too much coverage.
There are a lot of foundation products in the market ranging from dewy to matte, and a lot to choose from and these tips below will help you find the right foundation formula
for different skin types – dry, oily, combination, hyperpigmented and sensitive skin types.
1. BB Cream (Liquid Cream) – This type of foundation is for oily and combination skin and also for low-maintenance beauty (not suitable for dry skin). BB Cream can be worn alone or serves as a primer if you want a full-coverage foundation.
Can be used as: moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, sheer foundation
2. CC Cream – Has a light coverage and perfect for most skin types and uneven skin tone. CC creams cover sunspots and uneven skin tone and may be worn as a primer.
Concealer is an amazing way to cover up blemishes, dark circles, and other uneven spots on your face, but it comes with its own troubles. Without proper coverage, concealer tends to crease and we don’t want that. Usually, concealers creases under the eyes, chin or on the sides of the nose. Here are some tips for you!
(1) Apply a liquid or cream concealer using a blending or concealer brush like the blending it to cover your entire under eye area for a smooth finish. Start with a little amount of concealer, then add more as needed. Just don’t overdo it.
(2) Try to use a small makeup sponge in applying loose powder under the yes to set the concealer. With the help of a sponge, it would reach the corner of the eye looking like an airbrushed finish avoiding crease.
Hope these tips would be a great help for you.
