Review: Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange
I’ve used Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange for so many years. It must’ve been over 6 years by now. Perhaps longer. It’s been my all-time favorite bb cream for so many years. I honestly can’t believe I’ve been using it for this many years. It’s insane. I have a bunch of other bb creams but for some reason I always come back to this one. It simply works. But lately, I’ve been searching for new bb cream since it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do anymore. It’s not living up to my expectations. I’m quite sadden and disappointed about this, since this has been my to-go-to bb cream for so many years, and it didn’t cause my skin any problems. This was out of the blue and so weird. It just stopped working. So what happened??!! Keeping reading. 🙂 It’s time for me to share my thoughts on Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange!
Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange is a light-medium beige with strong yellow undertones. On my skin, it makes my skin appear more yellow. It seems to work just fine once it melts and blends into the skin. I’m not too bothered by the coloring of this product. The texture of the bb cream feels soft and creamy. It glides onto the skin smoothly. It has a soft and elegant feel to it. It leaves the skin feeling moisturized upon application. The bb cream blends into the skin well and helps to smooth over imperfections like acne marks, but it doesn’t provide full coverage. The coverage of this bb cream is medium. The coverage is buildable, but it leaves the skin looking dry, cakey, and unnatural when too much is applied. Since it doesn’t cover acne marks completely, I use a concealer for extra coverage, which works out just fine. A little or enough of this bb cream makes the skin look pretty and dewy. Gives the skin that lovely, soft, glass skin effect that I really like, especially when I have oily skin. My skin doesn’t appear more oily. It’s the perfect balance.
This bb cream contains SPF 50+ PA+++ for sun protection. It contains arbutin and ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate to brighten the skin while licorice root extract to (brighten) and soothe the skin. It also contains antioxidants and extracts to improve and protect the skin. That’s why I love bb creams so much and would never go back to traditional foundations. It’s just so much better for the skin! Even with the positives of this bb cream, sadly, I had to stop using this bb cream for good reasons. It stopped working for me. All of a sudden, after years of use, it’s not jiving with my skin any longer. At times, I noticed that it would leave parts of my face looking and feeling dry. It settled into fine lines and wrinkles. Made them appear more prominent. And the most unfortunate of them all, it clogged my pores. Since I’m not using a lot of products in my routine, I can pinpoint what’s causing breakouts and what’s not. I tried using the bb cream for 2 days (after not wearing any foundation), and I ended up with whiteheads and hard sebum within my pores. Just using this bb cream two times gave me acne! My pores looked larger. My skin went downhill from there. Once I stopped using it, my skin went back to normal after a few days. Since it breaks me out and isn’t living up to my expectations anymore, I’m pretty much done with it.
Here’s a swatch of the bb cream.
Pros & Cons
- Contains SPF 50+ PA+++ (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Zinc Oxide, Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate)
- Makes the skin look soft and dewy
- Feels lightweight but provides good coverage
- Provides medium coverage that is buildable
- Breakouts (cysts, closed comedones)
- Dries out the skin
It looks like my time is up with Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Orange. It’s been such a long time using this bb cream. It’s disappointing, but it is what it is. There’s something in this bb cream that my skin doesn’t like. It’s not the same anymore. Every time I use it, my skin goes nuts and breakouts out right after using it. I was in denial for a bit because it was something I’ve used for so many years. One day I just stopped using it, and the breakouts stopped. My skin looked clearer. Since then, I finally dropped this bb cream from my HG products and moved on to something new, better for my skin. My skin hasn’t had an explosion of cystic acne and closed comedones since (from a bb cream, like this bb cream did to me). So would I recommend this bb cream? It didn’t work for me, but it could work for you. I’m not going to purchase it again. Now I can just reminisce the good memories and move on with my life. haha. It was good while it lasted.
Trying out Skin79 Beblesh Balm (Green) Again
I decided to bring back a Skin79 BB Cream (the green one). From what I remember, the color of this BB Cream was suitable for my pale complexion. Contains SPF + skin care benefits. Coverage was not good, from what I remember. Anywho…I wanted to see if it’ll work now…since my skin is looking better compared to when I first tried it. I’ve used it a couple of times already to do a quick review.
The shade of this BB Cream is very nice if you have pale skin. The cream has a fragrance to it. It fades away after a few hours. The texture is soft and creamy. It blends into the skin very well. I love the SPF that it contains. Good for those hot summer months. 🙂 Since my skin is nearly flawless and smooth, I thought I would give it another chance. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. Love the color. Love the skincare benefits. Love the SPF. But, this BB Cream melts off the face. Provides absolutely no coverage. It also gave me blackheads and hard comedones. Ugh. I stopped using it ASAP. The only BB Cream that works for me is Dr Jart+ Silver Label BB Cream. I’m not going to bother with anything else anymore. I’m done. haha.
