SKIN79’S ICONIC PINK BB CREAM HAS HAD A MAKEOVER
Skin79’s iconic Pink BB Cream has had a makeover and quite frankly we’re obsessed. From the revamped packaging to the upgraded formula, guest blogger Stella from popular beauty blog Oh My Stellar! is reviewing all the new pink glory.
WHAT IS SKIN79 HOT PINK BB CREAM?
“(BB Cream) was originally formulated for surgical after care and is a combination of skincare and cosmetic. It aims to treat and care for your skin while also providing adequate cosmetic coverage. It functions as both a skin treatment and a cosmetic product (as you can see in the Skin79 BB Cream range which has similar ingredients to what you would find in specialised skincare).
Skin79 is really one of the original Korean BB creams – they were the first BB cream brand to launch in South Korea.
They’re a great example of a traditional BB cream formula…Their packaging has been improved, though still comes housed in their famously colour-coded pump bottles…
The hot pink bottle of the Skin79 BB cream is in the ‘natural beige’ shade 21, which is the most standard shade in Korean base products.”
WHAT DOES IT DO?
“(Pink BB) is specially formulated for people with combination to oily skin.
It has a medium coverage and works to even out skin tone while also brightening skin and having oil/sebum control properties, preventing skin from becoming greasy later in the day.
It has a natural finish that is not overly dewy, but is still comfortable and hydrating.”
WHAT’S IN IT?
“It has three main ingredients:
- Adenosine: A yeast-derived ingredient that soothes and restores skin
- Niacinamide: A form of Vitamin B3 that is excellent of brightening skin and suppressing the formation of melanin (i.e. dark spots)
- Almond Oil: It is jam-packed full of Vitamin E, which helps to protect skin and keep it soft and smooth”
WHO SHOULD USE IT?
“This product is recommended for people with an oily skin type, who have large, visible pores and – obviously – wear a Korean shade 21. This is my personal perfect match.”
SS’s take: Hot Pink BB Cream shot to superstardom in the early 2010s thanks to a formula that matched Asian and Caucasian complexions beautifully and that’s still the case with this version. If you’ve got light coloured skin that doesn’t have pink undertones, this BB will be the perfect shade for you. If you’re slightly more tanned (or get darker with a bit of sun), we’d suggest moving up one shade to the Skin79 Original BB Cream.
