I recently bought the ICS BB Cream at a Korean cosmetics counter. I wanted to try the Dr. Jart or the BRTC but they only carried the ICS one. I was really hesitant to buy it cuz the color has a grayish cast to it and it was $58. But the SA assured me that the cream blends into the skin really well and conforms to your skin color.
She was right. I love this cream. I have been searching for the "perfect" foundation/tinted moisturizer/concealer for YEARS. Up until now I've been using the Shiseido stick foundation and their Powdery Foundation compact both in O60. I would never stray from the Powdery Foundation cuz I haven't found anything better but I wasn't completely satisfied w/the foundation.
Anyway, the cream really does blend well, it's not heavy yet it does a good job of covering imperfections w/out the help of a concealer (I have slight acne scars, the occasional zit, and a little redness around the nose area) and I can wear it alone or w/a light brush of my Shiseido powder for a very matte, airbrushed look. When I wear it alone, it gives me a nice glowy look but not greasy. And it keeps my face matte so I don't have to touch up through out the day. It also doesn't oxidize so the color stays the same.
This is def. a make-up product, not a face cream. I recommend you use it in place of your foundation/tinted moisturizer. The SA told me I don't need to moisturize since this should take care of it but I have very dry skin so I still used my day cream.
Sorry for the long post but I just wanted to share this w/everyone. I highly recommend trying a bb cream.
