how bebleshy you look

In keeping with the whole Japanese skincare revolution thing, I am now all about the BB Cream. It was actually Freecia who told me about it and sent me reeling into a new obsession. BB Cream (Blemish Balm Cream) is some magical elixir that is basically a tinted moisturizer. It also has sunscreen and whitening and anti-wrinkle properties (supposedly). The Koreans seem to be the hardcore BB Cream freaks, and boy are there a lot of choices! I did some basic research, and you can find plenty of reviews online (this Asian beauty blog is one of my favorites–very detailed posts!).
I finally ended up getting the Skin79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm mostly because, okay, I liked the packaging! I couldn’t resist the hot pink pump action container. I got it on ebay from seller “skinfood2you” whose ebay shop you can find here. Shipping was only $3.50 or something, and I got my BB Cream in about a week! Woohoo! I paid about $18 for the lotion plus shipping, which is cheaper than many moisturizers, especially ones that are supposed to change your whole face. Anyway, I really like this BB Cream. It’s lightly scented, and the odor goes away very quickly. It blends into the skin smoothly and leaves my face dry (as opposed to greasy and heavy). If you’re super fair skinned, I’d be cautious, but if you have some pigment, I say go for it! Oh, if you are all about the natural, organic ingredients, you might want to steer clear. There are all kinds of crazy ingredients in the BB Cream. I was too scared to look any of them up on the Skin Deep cosmetic database.
Oh, before I forget, I have to share some of the “instructions” on the box:
“This product has excellent cover function by composition of make-up base and foundation. It can correct your irregularly different skin tones naturally. A thte same time by use of fine and soft texture porosity powder is excellent for your skin adhesion and sebum control.
This is W/S shape which is good for skin affinity and it make your skin light, soft and dry all day without that skin gooey.
DIRECTIONS: Use it proper quantity on the area of your face like patting at the last step of skin care.”

    I love Asian makeups! I’m kicking myself for not getting more of that weird Fiberwig in HK before coming back to the US where it’s really expensive in Sephora. There’s also a Korean brand I LOVE called Etude that was so cheap there, and so great! The eyeshadows are really full of pigment!

    I love the instructions! But I’m afraid to try it; I don’t know if I want to be paler, just even.

    OMG. I clicked on the link for the Asian beauty blog. It was scary! I am *not* going down that particular rabbit hole. I’d rather look at poor Deedle’s teeth, or even the rainbow cake–and looking at the rainbow cake made me want to take a toothbrush to my entire alimentary canal.

    Engrish, how I love thee!
    I wouldn’t say I’m super pale, but how tinted is it? Not that I need to use more products on my happily product-less face.
