Missha Cho Bo Yang BB Cream Review! ♡ [01 - Natural Beige]
And I’m back again with another review! hehe! All this reviewing makes me really excited cause it’s always something new and always takes me one step closer to finding my perfect product.
Today’s product is Missha’s Cho Bo Yang BB Cream that’s been used by Kumicky in almost all her makeup tutorials. She used this with her TOFULOVE sponge and yes, I’ve been hunting for this item for AGES now and finally found it at the basement of Orchard Central.
Oh, by the way, my review for TOFULOVE can be found HERE!
It retails at about 54.00SGD I think… I bought this item maybe two weeks ago and tossed the receipt… T_T So sorry, sweethearts!
Now, according to an online source, and I quote:
Missha Misa Cho Bo Yang BB Cream SPF 30 PA++ is specially design for mature skin type. It contains preciously selected traditional oriental medicine and has been prepared using the current Nanoliposome technique.
Main oriential medicines include:
- 10% Wild Ginseng – for skin firming and anti-againg
- Cordycep Sinensis- is well-known as an important nourishing, for brightening and soothing
- Velvet Ext
- Pure Gold
There’s 50g of product in every tube. Haha, I think it’s quite worth the price seeing that it’s supposed to contain Ginseng and the works. I swear, I was really shocked when I saw what it contains! Pure gold, imagine that!
It’s supposed to be for matured skin but -laughing- you’d probably have noticed by now that I’m already using a range of anti-aging products so this one is just another one to add to my arsenal.
The box that it comes in is nice cause it’s got raised patterns that give it that classic oriental look… I think it’s a really nice touch to the product because most of their other packages are very simple and underwhelming.
Here’s the actual tube! Notice that the words 美思 [Which is Missha] are in gold? It gives the tube a really elegant feeling somehow… The lady at the store told me that the Cho Bo Yang BB Cream is the newest BB cream at the store but mmm… Looking at my back issues of POP, -pausing- I don’t quite think so? :X
It’s a twist open squeeze tube that’s got a pretty small nozzle so you won’t have to worry about squeezing too much out.
I’ve got really clumsy hands and find myself having trouble with squeeze tubes ALL the time. I always either squeeze too much or too little and then have to squeeze more and instead squeeze too much. Did that make sense? XD Didn’t have trouble with this one though!
Look look, it’s got SPF 30 which is perfect for me because -confessing- I don’t actually use sunscreen. -laughing- I see that look on your face already but honestly! I don’t use sunscreen because my sunscreens usually give me breakouts… So when I saw that this one contains protecting, I jumped at it.
And in case you’re interested in where your products are made, it was made in Korea~
This BB cream comes in two shades, 01 and 02 with 01 being the lighter shade and 02, well duh, the darker.. I bought 01 naturally! Haha! I actually found 01 a little too light for me at first but found that after maybe… 2-5 minutes, the colour sets in and blends into my own skintone.
Then I use my Chacott loose powder over it so set it and my skin actually stays pretty much shine free for the rest of the day but honestly, I think it’s got more to do with my Chacott loose powder than anything else. [OH OH OH! I'll be having new reviews of my Chacott haul in different shades soon so come back soon! ]
-laughing- Yes, I know I’m hairy. Waxing job, here I come but I’m so lazy… T_T
Take note here, the distinct difference between the area with and the area without the BB cream?
The area with the BB cream is lighter and almost has a pearly appearance. Now, when I applied it on my face, that’s very clearly heck loads fairer than my arms, it sets right in and gives my face a really nice glowy effect because of the pearly bits!
I’ve been using it for the past week now and so far so good! I really really like the scent that the BB cream has but I don’t quite know how to explain it…. It’s neither floral nor herbal nor zesty…. It’s more of that classic foundation smell but just a little bit more floral and a little lighter. My nose was definitely happy with it.
Another thing I really like about it is how light it feels on my skin. It’s incredible because I HATE feeling like there’s gunk on my skin. It doesn’t tug during the application process either because of how light it is!
In terms of coverage, well, as you can see from the picture of my arm, it’s got some amounts of coverage. But of course, it’s not exactly the best when compared to real liquid foundation like my RMK Liquid Foundation. Light coverage is what I say it gives.
♡♡♡ Missha Cho Bo Yang BB Cream Review! [01 - Natural Beige] ♡♡♡
✔ Coverage: 6.5/10 [Not very much compared to my normal foundation. XD Then again, it's BB cream.]
✔ Oil Control: -/10 [Because I patted loose powder on top, I can't quite say how well the BB cream does in this department]
✔ Ease of application: 8/10 [It was easy enough since the squeeze tube's really awesome]
✔ Smell: 10/10 [I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THE SMELL]
✔ Price: It’s kind of pricey…
Rebuy worthy! Definitely for days that I want light coverage and a treat for my nose. XD
