A Little About BB Creams
BB stands for Blemish Balm. And we all know what that means:An agent that fights blemishes! These type of creams also come with SPF to protect your skin from the sun while still soothing and covering any flaws.
BB creams were originally created to heal skin after Cosmetic Skin Surgeries.

MISSHA PERFECT COVER
Today I will be reviewing a BB cream which I personally purchased from Ebay.
This was a BB cream I purchased after a lot of research and reading and watching reviews on Youtube, MakeupAlley and other websites.
Now, there are like hundreds of BB cream Brands. North Americans recently started creating them too to compete with the Asians and I hear they are not so good!
I will now go ahead and lay out the Cons and Pros of this products all based on my own experience and opinion. Bare in mind, I have used this product for nearly 2 months so I am not going to judge it based on first impressions!
First of all I have medium skin tone with yellow undertone.
I am Dry to Combination Skin Type
(A bit dehydrated with visible pores and acne prone during the time of the month or if any products don't suit my skin that has oil or harsh chemicals)
With all that in mind I had to find something that was already reviewed by others same as me.
I purchased the Number 21 of Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream.
On the website it is $29.00 USD but luckily I had found an Ebay Seller who sells the items directly from Korea, that's where it really comes from. They are authentic and I paid only $13!!
Goes on Smoothly
Very Moisturizing - Great for my Dry Skin (But I do wear serum underneath for maximum moisture protection, if you do not have dry skin like me then you can go without the serum)
Instantly adds coverage to blemishes, hides pores
Acts like a Foundation
Medium to Maximum Coverage, with powder on top
SPF 42 (love that i don't have to wear separate sunscreen)
Does not sting eyes as it contains SPF
Does not have a ghost like effect like some other BB creams do
Has a slight whiteness once applied, very little (Can be easily touched up with pressed powder and thats what i do!)
Broke me out around chin area. (I did not break out first one week but after 1 week I did, so not sure if it is Hormonal or from product but I do notice breakouts more often whenever I have any products like foundations on me!)
I really have no other complains about this product besides the two above.
But I have not tried any other BB creams besides Garnier, which I will review soon. And I definitely heard worse reviews on other B.B creams. So, I would give this B.B cream a 8 out of 10.
Because it does what it promises. How I react is upon my skin issues. Not every skin type might react to breaking out.
Also, I think if you buy from Ebay it is worth trying out for only $10!
