Review | Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Function BB Cream

As summer is already here lazy asses like me are of course always on the hunt for sunscreen, waterproof, anti-aging, skin brightening, etc etc basically products that are million-in-one to finish everything in one step. I have owned this for more than 2 months now and figured the testing period is long enough for a review.

I have been eye-ing on this SPF 50+ PA+++ BB Cream for quite some time now. It calms to have all the good stuff aka Vitamin A-Z,

"Upgraded Sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection SPF50. Strengthen's skin NMF and maintain balanced skin condition. Osmopur-N and Vital-V Complex soothe and protect skin from various harmful environments to make a moisturized, healthy skin."

The only reason it set me off from purchasing was that I still have so many products I need to use up first (Hello, Giorgio Armani Designer Lift, Revlon Age Defying, Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua etc...) But as a BB Cream lover, this Triple Action BB Cream stands out to me with its good reviews despite its crazy sunscreen. How can I help myself :)?

1 | Color: First off, this Triple Action BB Cream doesn't have the grey tone that a lot of BB Cream has. Over time the brightness slightly disappears, making the skin looks even more natural.  It is also a medium to dewy finish which I personally love. It however only provides 1 shade and it is definitely too light for me. I am about MAC NC25 at the moment.

2 | Coverage / Pigmentation: Solid medium coverage. Since the SPF 50 sunscreen ingredients can leave obvious marks and some serious rubbing is needed for this BB Cream regardless if to use your fingers or foundation brush. I like to REALLY sheer it out by using my fingers to blend it in into the primer and/or moisturizer to still give a medium coverage. The first couple times I tried applying it just like other BB Cream and though I really like the overall finish, the BB Cream sinks in around the pore area so close up it looks really disgusting. 

3 | Texture: Rather thick. It is definitely the most condensed BB Cream I have tried. The application as mentioned above needs some serious buffing. When on, it gives the illusion of very good skin.

4 | Lasting + Oil Control: On average it lasts about 5 to 6 hours which I am impressed. In the oil control department however, this BB Cream is not the greatest. I have combination skin, and the oil on my T-zone mixed with this BB Cream really makes me look like a grease ball if I don blot after 4 hours. 

5 | Price: $12.99 from Amazon, I got it from Colormix for about the same price. For this amount of product and how little is needed per application, this is a great deal in my opinion.

With a light layer of Skin79 Super Beblesh Balm Triple Function BB Cream, eye brows and thin eyeliner on -

*Sorry for my very swollen face. It was after the Beer Festival last night and 4 hours of sleep. I did not put concealer on for you to see the coverage under the eyes. My dark circles still shine through wtf.

Overall it got a B+ in my book. The texture is not the best but it really isnt bad considering how much sunscreen it provides. Is is best for the days where I am just running around town for few hours to run some errands. I will be sure to get a lot of use out of this the rest of this summer.

Hope you find this helpful!
