Skin79 Green BB Cream
Review on Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Green

Here’s my review on Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Green! 🙂

I must admit. I love BB Creams. 🙂 It’s the skincare + makeup combination that makes it so much better compared to a regular foundation that’s just for ‘makeup’. Also, the texture of BB Creams tend to work in my favor. I like it. It’s smooth and thick. Fills in fine lines and wrinkles. It gives the skin a dewy, flawless, youthful appearance. Yeah, yeah, I was complaining about it weeks ago. It’s one of those things that ‘you don’t know what you have until it’s gone’. haha. Coverage with a BB Cream is much better than a regular foundation. Instead of rambling on about how BB Creams are way better. This is what I think about Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Green! My third BB Cream from the Skin79 collection. The other ones I have tried are Pink and Orange.

Shade: I’ve read reviews where people say that the shade is very light in color. Well, it worked for me. Here’s a swatch of the BB Cream. I think the color was a little bit darker. I still liked it because it adjusted to my complexion.

Texture: It’s a soft cream.

Finish: Works great on oily skin! It’s a matte finish.

Coverage: Very little coverage. You would have to have perfect skin for this to work. It makes me thrive for ‘clear, perfect’ skin. haha.

Fragrance: It has fragrance, but it’s not overwhelming.

SPF?: SPF 30 PA++! Yass!! Much lower than the Orange one…

Breakouts?: None as of yet.

Final Thoughts:

The shade of this BB Cream is way better compared to the Orange and Pink (for me). Orange was too yellow. I’m starting to question if my undertone is even yellow. Every time I wear yellow-based makeup, my skin looks more yellow. I think I may be neutral with some yellow. So, the shade/color of this BB Cream is good.

I love that it has anti-wrinkle and skin whitening benefits. That ‘could’ help with acne marks and uneven skin tone. I think I rather have that instead of nothing at all. Better to try than not try at all. I love the SPF in this BB Cream. It’s not the highest. It’s something. I’m having trouble finding a sunblock that works for acne-prone skin. I know it’s not good to rely on makeup for SPF, but it works for now as I go about finding a sunblock that is suitable for my skin type. Most sunblocks break me out. That includes the ones that claim to be made for oily, acne-prone skin.

The only downside to this BB Cream would be the coverage. It doesn’t provide much coverage. Be aware of that. If the condition of your skin is not near perfect, I suggest trying a different BB Cream to try. Layering on this BB Cream to achieve good coverage isn’t something you want to do. It’ll take hours. Overall, I don’t think this BB Cream is too bad. It hasn’t caused my skin to breakout in acne or clog my pores (yet). I hope it doesn’t. I’ll make an update if anything happens.

What’s your favorite BB Cream?

My Makeup Routine

Leave a comment

It’s time! Here’s my makeup routine! 😊

Let me begin by saying that I do not have a daily makeup routine. It’s because I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis anymore. I used to. One day, I decided to let go of makeup. It happened gradually. I’ve only worn makeup about 5 times in the past months. I’ve been makeup-free for most days. It’s not because I’m lazy. It’s because makeup is not good for my skin type. It makes my skin oily and causes random breakouts. If makeup contributes to my acne, I prefer not to wear it. You might say that I’m wearing the wrong type of makeup. No, I am not. Imagine having naturally oily skin that is prone to acne and piling on makeup on top of that — that is pretty disaterous on a day-to-day basis. Makeup once in a while is OK. It’s not something I want to do every day. Makeup, in my honest opinion, is not good for the skin in general. So why wear makeup? I’ll answer that question in another post! Here are the makeup products that I use and have when I wear makeup.

Skin79 Orange BB Cream

Foundation/BB Cream:

I use Dr Jart Silver Label BB Cream or Skin79 Orange BB Cream. I prefer Dr Jart much more. The texture feels smoother and makes my skin look flawless. But, I’m not a big fan of either of these anymore. They haven’t helped with wrinkles, brightening, anti-aging, and so on. The only thing I liked about these BB Creams was the SPF. It stayed on my skin much longer compared to an SPF lotion that goes on clear. As of right now, I use it because I have it. I will be on the look out for a new BB Cream that is vegan and cruelty-free. OR, I’ll go back to using the good ‘ol basics: Powder Foundation & Concealer — I’m breaking the liquid foundation first rule, haha. Oh well! 😜

Milani Makeup

Speaking of powder foundations, I use Milani Even Touch Powder Foundation. I have one in my skin color and one that’s much darker as a bronzer. These work quite well for the price. From what I remember, they are under 10 bucks! You shouldn’t have to pay $20+ for foundation. This is just my opinion. At the moment, I use my BB Creams more often than my Milani powder foundations. As I said above, I’m thinking about switching it around, since powder foundations are 10x more lightweight on the skin. I prefer the natural look over the made-up look.

Eyeshadow:

For my eyes, I use Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes. The same ones I introduced years ago. HAHAH! No, seriously. 😅 I haven’t purchased any new eyeshadows for years. My eyeshadow palettes have lasted for many, many years. I always make sure to disinfect my eyeshadows before using them. I don’t feel the need to buy a $50-$100 palette or have a collection of eyeshadows sitting around in the dust, to be honest. It’s a waste of money and space. I’m not the type of person to buy makeup palettes to stare at either. It’s not my thing.

Eyeliner & Mascara:

My eyeliner: Milani Stay Put Matte Liner

Other eye makeup products I use are mascara and eyeliner. For eyeliner, Milani. For mascara, I’m currently using NYX Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara.

Blush:

Two shades of blush that lasts forever!!

I do use blush. I use Milani blushes. I don’t think they’re the best, but I’m not going to drop $$$ just because I want new blushes. These work for the time being, and I still have them.

Last but not least…

Concealer:

That’s the mascra I was talking about earlier. The NYX concealer is actually pretty horrible. Since I still have lots of product left, I’m just making the most out of it. Don’t buy it. Once I’m done, I’ll move onto something new.

So that’s what I use. I know it’s not much, but it’s something. I think I prefer to keep my makeup routine low-maintinence and very minimal. How about you? Do you wear makeup every day? Do you not wear makeup? What are your favorite makeup products? Share your thoughts. Let’s talk!

Love, Jen
