Whitz BB Cream Review

So, right now, I am using self-tanner (I am usually an NW20)- but I could pass for an NW30.
These BB Creams look very light on me right now- but during winter (when I am lighter- some are just right).
I tried my first BB Cream (Skinfood's Aloe BB Cream) over a year ago- and I fell in love.
I love the multiple benefits of BB cream: cover, treat, protect.
If anyone knows of a DARKER BB Cream- PLEASE let me know!!








Dr.Jart BB Cream
Rejuvenating Blemish Base (Silver Label)


I LOVE the almost-full coverage of Dr.Jart's Rejuvenating BB Cream, however, it has a really bad GRAY-cast to it (*not as bad as Skin79 Gold Label).
So I must mix this with a darker foundation- yet it still always ends up looking really WHITE on my face. It does not dry down to a matte finish, so I recommend this for normal to dry skin-types.






Missha BB Cream




The Missha BB Cream is about medium coverage (it's buildable). However, what's nice is it dries down to a more matte finish (so you don't look greasy). It's great for normal to oily/combo skin. As you can see, this looks the least "cakey" or should I say more natural?! I love this one- especially in hotter weather.





Skinfood Gingko BB Cream



This is by far the best smelling one! However, it dries down horribly. It looks greasy on my face, and I think it may have made me itch. Has this happened to anybody else? It's a good coverage. I recommend this for very dry skin-types.






Skinfood Mushroom BB Cream




Skinfood's Mushroom BB Cream is my HG. I always go back to this one! It's about a medium-to-full coverage. I gave one to my mum as well, and she loves mixing it with her MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation. This doesn't dry down to a matte finish, but it also doesn't look greasy- leaves you with a nice dewy glow. This is definitely a BB cream everyone should check out.

I'm using the Ginko Green one right now and I'm pretty much in love with it (: it works fine for me (never made me itch) but is a bit hard to blend at first. Want to try the mushroom one! Thanks for the good review!

Great review! The swatches really helped. I've heard that there's a L'Egere BB cream that's darker than all the others. Not sure of the name though. I REALLY wish there was a BB cream for the medium to tan ladies out there!

Crystal said...

Thanks for the comparisons!! So helpful.

Janelle said...

BB creams! :)

I'm currently using Missha M Perfect Cover in No. 23. It's the darkest shade of two. You should try that! I'm NC42 so I HAVE to mix it with my foundation, but I still love it.

Thanks for the swatches & comparisons. I really want to try the Skinfood Mushroom one now.

Marge said...

ey thanks for the swatches. i'll try out the missha (my skin's oily-combo) and i would prefer the matte finish.

you could try out the face shop (available at walgreens) they have two kinds the quick and clean which can be used on darker skin tones and their lighter one with spf called skin extra.

thanks again >__<
