Skin 79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Function BB Cream

June 11, 2012 | , , , , , , , , , ,
A while ago, in my March/April Collective Haul, I mentioned that I bought a 15g bottle of Skin 79's Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Function BB Cream. 
"A triple function blemish balm cream that shields skin from premature aging with potent SPF 25, while whitening skin and reducing existing lines and wrinkles. The creamy formula effectively covers up skin imperfections, creating a perfect base for make up and foundation. Skin feels and looks fresh, with a gorgeous matte finish all day long. Recommended for combination and oily skin types."

After hearing a lot about this product from a number of gurus on YouTube (including arose186 and missglamorazzi), I finally decided to buy this product. I was looking at a number of different BB creams, most from Skin 79, but I eventually decided on this one. Why? Because it's recommended for people with combination/oily skin and the packaging is hot pink. What's NOT to love?

BB creams (also known as Blemish Balms, Blemish Bases etc) are a product that, in a basic sense, are somewhere between a tinted moisturiser and foundation when it comes to coverage. They're meant to have a soothing effect on the skin and act as a multi-tasking product. A BB cream is said to moisturiser the skin, prime it for make up, provide coverage and sunscreen. Some also contain agents that are meant to address problem skin.

Although I bought this quite a while ago now, I've used this product almost every day in the past week and I'm quite impressed. 

The coverage of this product isn't amazing, but it does the job. The product comes out a beige/grey colour which can be quite off putting, especially if you're new to the world of BB creams. Don't stress though, it blends seamlessly into the skin. I'm not entirely sure how, to be honest, but it does. 

For me, this product has coverage that's somewhere in between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation. It's definitely buildable but, even then, it's not full coverage. The middle of my face (forehead, nose and chin) are quite red and, although it is dulled down, I still feel the need to add concealer to such areas when wearing the Skin 79 Super Plus Beblesh Balm Triple Function BB Cream. 

When applying this product, I normally work two layers into my skin with my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki (F80)

The wear of this product is good, but not incredible. I know it's meant to be a primer, as well as everything else, but I still apply a primer underneath. I will normally get about 5-6 hours wear out of this BB cream before I feel the need to heavily touch up.

Although the information says that the product leaves combination/oily skin feeling and looking matte all day, I wouldn't agree. I have combination oily skin and I feel the need to set this product with a powder. If I don't, my skin looks overly dewy and almost shiny. Every couple of hours I also reapply powder, but I think that's more of a habit than a necessity for me.

I'm really enjoying using this as an everyday product, especially when I don't plan on doing too much, but I want a bit of coverage.

Would I recommend this product? Definitely. If you're a fan of tinted moisturisers and other BB creams, I think you'll like this, especially if you have combination/oily skin. If you don't, there's a number of other BB creams from Skin 79 that may be more suited to you and your skin.

Although I've never seen it sold in Australia, the entire Skin 79 range (along with a number of other Asian BB cream brands) can be purchased online. Google the product you're looking for and the country you would like it shipped to, and a number of stores will appear.

  1. I haven't tried the Skin 79 but I have a few Missha ones and the Garnier one (which I hate). The Missha ones are good though. I'd be keen to try some of the higher end equivilents: Dior, Estee Lauder, Clinique and see how they compare.

    1. Hi, Klara - It's great! As for the Garnier BB cream, is it the original formula that you have? I really dislike that. I love the new formula for combination/oily skin though!

  2. I use the Garnier one...it's perfect in terms of coverage for me but the colour match is terrible, too pink on my skin. I want to try other brands too.

    1. I'd definitely agree, Holly. Even though they're sheer, BB creams can still be too dark/pink etc. I'd definitely recommend try the combination/oily skin Garnier BB cream. It's amazing.

  3. Very nice review of Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream, it's so detailed. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing us your review. I will wait for your another make up reviews! :)

  4. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues
    with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
