Are they good? They say it's a moisturizer, foundation and "skin soother" in one. It's very popular in Asia specially in Korea. I'm on a search for the perfect tinted moisturizer for myself and I stumbled on these Blemish Balm Creams. What do you think?

Really? How come? I got some Smashbox with Matrixyl and it seems to make everything go on better and stay on there. I use it over my SS. What ones don't you like rat?

BTW we are waiting for that report on the Mud Masks......!

I have tried every primer known to man kind, I think. I have tried Smashbox primers in clear, green and orange. My most resent tries were Makeup forever HD primer, Aubrey Nicole, Clear Prep Matte and Skinactives Celestite Spritz.

HD was ok
Aubrey Nicole, too greasy
Clear Prep, too greasy
Skinactives, nice but is a spray and just don't know how much of a primer it really is-


Mud Masks......tried the Honey mask last night and it is just like honey, even left my hairline sticky. I can't say if it did anything to my skin or not, I was in such a hurry and probably should have waited to apply it when I had more time. I will try it again tomorrow night, and get back to you on it-


Next week, I will try the DMAE.

I don't know whether to get a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer.

Here is a link from someone who knows about them (she's a blogger/youtuber and has a large following, she also tests tons of beauty products):

I can't post links yet sooo:

She recommends not using BB cream as a moisturizer or sunscreen (but more as a foundation), so that should tell you something mytaintedrainbow.

Hello I'm new here. I'm using Missha bb cream. I heard some good results from it so I bought 3 of them and still using the first tube.
Does anyone know if it's a good sun screen when using Retin A?

I bought that one when you first posted it, Gabro. I don't have major breakouts anymore but it's great for spot treatments, love it! Thanks!

I bought the Skin79 Super BB Cream: Gold Collection around Christmas... It's the only BB Cream i've tried and it's a nice substitute for makeup if you don't need heavy coverage.

I don't use it often but when i do, it's all i put on my face (instead of makeup)
They don't make BB Cream it in a lot of shades and people kept saying how pale the colour was for the Gold Collection.. i purchased it anyway and it blends great with my skin tone.

It has UV Protection SPF25, Caviar and Gold (not sure if that's good for the skin but it says it makes the skin glow), and Arbutin whitening properties (which is the one thing i hate about this product). I'm not sure if it actual does whiten the skin since i dont use it often and im unsure of the amount of arbutin in the product....but i dont want any whitening agents on my skin..

So other than that, it's a nice product to use sortof like a tinted moisturizer. When you don't want to wear heavy makeup but still want a bit of coverage.
