Skinfood Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream VS Aloe Sun BB Cream

Just did a review on foundation, might as well do another one on skinfood bb creams. Hope some of you will find it helpful :)

  • Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream SPF20 PA+ #2
A Triple-Function Cream containing Aloe and Mushroom extracts that hydrate the skin. Its active ingredients, arbutin and adenosine, help improving your skin tone with their firming effects. And it blocks the sun's UV rays that darken and age your skin.

Take out a small amount on the back of the hand and use your fingers to pat and spread the cream on the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.

Review:  Can I just say I LOVE this bb cream? It is probably the thickest bb cream and foundation I have tried but I think it really helps keeping all the moisture in. My skin felt really tight (in a nice way lol) after applying just one layer. Its really balmy, it glides on easily but stays once its on. Its extremely high coverage so one layer is enough. The staying power is also excellent. Apply in the morning and last all day. On a side note, it does not smell like real mushrooms k. I dont even know how to describe it.. kinda smells like some nice herbs. This was recommended by the sales who worked at Skinfood she told me its the best one of all three they have. Do you have this habit too? Just grab whatever the sales person recommends-_-

  • Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF 20 PA+ #2 
This multi-functional BB cream combining skin-care and make-up protects your skin from darkening and UV rays, a main factor of aging. Rich with aloe, which excellently soothes skin and provides moisture, this cream leaves your skin feeling moisturized and naturally corrects your skin tone to ensure clear and bright skin tone feeling like your own skin.

Take it onto the back of your hand. Use your fingers to apply it to the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead in order. Pat and spread it over the whole face.

This feels like a watery version of the mushroom one. It still moisturizes really well.  Its courage is light-medium yet very buildable, unlike the mushroom one, more than one layer might already be too much. I use it overall once for the entire face, then go back and dab more onto my dark circles and the bridge of my nose as a highlight. It does nothing covering my freckles tho. It has a fresh clean sweet smell which i dig lol.

Comparison: At first I really wanted to do a comparison but now its kinda impossible after stating all the pros and cons for each one. They are completely different. I personally love the mushroom one a lot more for the amount needed and its firming effect. Its totally worth that extra $15. But for you pretty girls out there who only want to brighten up your skin and have a multi functional product (base + concealer + highlight) and dont have much to conceal, the aloe one isnt a bad choice. I used to be a huge tinted moisturizer fan but both of these are still better than any tinted moisturizers. I am not sure if they would be too thick when the weather picks up more but as for now it works really well with my skin.

**These are the first two bb cream I have purchased so I cant really compare them with other ones for you ><. Both of them can be purchased off Amazon.com. And sorry for the crap faces and super severe dark circles / eyebags in the pictures. I hope this review helps a little bit, as I know a lot of you out there are skinfood / bb cream fans :P
