Review : Skinfood Red Bean BB Cream SPF 20 PA+ #1 Light Beige

Hello beauties ! How's your weekend, i hope it's great :)) .. Today i want to review my everyday BB cream, this BB cream is from Skinfood and this is my first time using korean BB cream, I ever tried another BB creams before such as all variants of Caring Colours BB cream and also Maybelline BB cream that you can check the review HERE. And compare to other BB creams that i tried before i guess Skinfood Red Bean BB cream is my favorite one. If you are interested to know why this BB cream is my favorite BB cream so far you should check my review below.

Let's start !

Product's description :

Skinfood Red Bean BB Cream SPF 20 PA+
A hydrating BB cream with red beans that nourishes and moisturizes rough skin while providing natural yet flawless coverage even when applied in a thin layer

To use : After your daily skin care regiment, apply an even layer on to the face in upward and outward motion.

Netto : 45 ml

Made in Korea 

I got it for $12 or IDR 122.000 exclude shipping cost, for 45 ml BB cream i think it's very affordable. By the way i bought this at HouseOf Younique, recommend this seller because she responded me very fast, her products are cheaper to other online shop and last but not least i got some free samples :D. But the bad thing is she sent me wrong shade :(( (although the wrong shade is still wearable for my skin tone)

This is my free samples, unfortunately i don't know what are these stuff ..#ngeeek

Firstly i really love the color ! it's deep maroon red, the cap is made from shiny plastic thingy kinda look like a metal which is make this BB cream looks luxury, not to big so it's very travel friendly. But cons is the sticker label on the bottle is get dirty easily and easy to ripped off  

Woah the scent is so heavenly sweet reminds me of "es kacang merah" #yaiyalaah .. although it's kinda strong.. but it evaporates after putting the BB cream on to my face. So if you have a sensitive you don't have to worry.

It came with 2 shades light biege and natural beige
My prediction light beige is suit for <N27/N30 and natural beige is for >N30

Mine is light beige and it it has neutral undertone, it slightly lighter that my skin tone first time i put on my face but after a couple seconds it blends to my skin tone very well. It doesn't have any grey undertone so that it doesn't make your face looks greyish or anything.

It has very light texture, really easy to blend and absorb to my skin quickly. Another good thing is this BB cream doesn't cakey although i just using my finger tip when i applied it.

PS : i only put on my cheek and it only in green bean size
I can say this BB cream has sheer to medium coverage but still buildable , if you have a blemishes skin to hide on i don't think this BB cream works on you. This BB cream only even out the skin tone and also cover the redness.

Compare to other BB creams that i tried before so far Skinfood Red Bean BB Cream is the best for oil control. It has matte finish and after a couple hours it gives me a dewy finish. I also don't recommend this BB cream for dry skin type because your flaky skins will show up more. 

OK staying power. It still stay all day even i take wudhu for a couple times


*after 4-5 hours*
Say hello to my big lips ! :D
