both of the bb creams i've owned (estee lauder + clinique) go on pale on me and a few minutes later start to match my natural face colour more. is this an example of oxidizing or is this just the spf factor?

I use Korean BB cream I order off Amazon. I find it incomparable to the Westernized BB creams-- which I'm sure most have heard, seem to be more similar to tinted moisturizers!

I use below and I definitely recommend it-- it goes on kind of gray but ends up matching my skin perfectly (NW30).

I've tried a few BB creams now. The first was Skin79 Gold-I liked the coverage but it was way too dark for me (I'm normally the lightest shade in foundation-in fact, there are many times when I'm TOO light for the palest shades except in brands like MUFE that have a wider array).

Then I tried Missha Signature since it comes in shades-the colour matched perfectly but it used to FLAKE off my skin after a few hours. Very disappointing.

I'm currently using Nanoce BB Cream which is a Japanese brand that comes in 2 shades. I'm not sure if the lighter shade is a perfect match for me, but it's fairly close and gives good coverage and lasts for most of the day.

Yes, I read that many of the Korean "Blemish Balms" have a type of snail and pearl extract in them. Maybe that is making the difference?

Okay that's good to hear. May check it out if it comes on sale.

And lucy I know some are meant to adapt to your skin tone. By oxidize I mean the cream turns orange .

... and I think it's important how you apply it ... I use Sigma f8o brush. every foundation or tinted moisturizer looks better when it's applied with F80. ok, it has nothing to do with oxidation but still ...

^ :p I agree creams / foundations do tend to look better when applied with a good stippling brush.

I've seen a lot of ads lately for the L'Oreal BB cream. I think its part of their youth code line. Has anyone here tried it?

I've also been using the Maybelline's BB cream and it's worked great for me. I have combination skin, so I set it with a little bit of powder. Since I was tanned when I bought it, I got both shades and mix them to get the right one. It doesn't look orange or weird, it gives a really natural look.

I'm debating getting one of the ones on Amazon, but the one I got a sample of with the face mask I ordered is too expensive. Which is disappointing since it's anti-acne and this sample even seems to match my skin. I noticed another one mentioned a lot is way cheaper though.

I've been trialling the new Lancome BB Cream (although it won't be officially released in Australia for a little while due to SPF restrictions) and it is amazing. Hands down the best I've ever used and it doesn't oxidise on the skin at all.

I must say i've tried the expensive ones and never been happy with then. And then i bought maybeline bb cream and it it perfect! My face glows! You need only a hint of concealer or just go without.

I'm not much a BB cream user but i've been loving Skin79 Vital Orange BB cream recently! It has a yellow based undertone which seems to match with my skin color, it can be quite ghastly white looking if you applied too much! So a little goes a long way And it has a high coverage, perhaps due to the SPF 50. Really recommend this

In the long term the BB Cream trend left me rather unimpressed. I much prefer normal foundations.
