Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream ($29.99 for 50mL) Blemish Balm, also called BB Cream, is known to have been formulated as an after-treatment cream to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery to soothe and regenerate the skin.
The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.
Finally a BB Cream that comes in a shade for tanned skin! Unlike other BB Creams, Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream has a range of shades. It comes in 4 different shades: #13 Milky Beige, #21 Light Beige, #23 Natural Beige, and #31 Golden Beige. I have #21 and #23. I’m thinking I should have gotten #31 also because I know I will get a tan during summer and #23 will be too light. For now, #23 is perfect for me. #21 is more of a winter shade. #13 is just way too pale for me no matter the season.
Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream has a thick texture that provides a light to medium coverage. It’s thicker than a tinted moisturizer but not quite like full coverage foundation. It’s sort of like a light foundation. I read people had difficulty blending because of the thick texture. I didn’t have any difficulty. I used my fingers to blend so the warmth from my fingers probably melted the cream a bit to make it thinner. It gives your skin a semi-matte finish. I want to say a bit dewy too. When you first apply the BB Cream, you will notice it leaves a grayish cast. Don’t worry. Give the BB Cream about half an hour to oxidize, and the grayish color will disappear. Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream doesn’t have super long lasting powers, but it does last for a good 5-6 hours. I haven’t been using it long enough to determine whether it help better improve my skin so I can’t comment on that. However, I can say I haven’t had a breakout since I started using it. It didn’t irritate my skin either even though there is a fragrance. The BB Cream has a fresh floral scent. It’s not very strong, but it’s there.
The size I have is 50mL and it comes with a pump. I have a love-hate relationship with the pump. Yes, the pump makes for cleaner dispensing, but it makes it difficult to control how much to pump out. You can’t stop mid-pump because it’s too difficult. But I can’t complain too much because one pump is the perfect amount to cover my whole face. A little truly goes a long way. I have a feeling a 50mL tube is going to last me a whole year.
