Korean goodies: Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB cream review

Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB cream
I must admit I let myself get carried away on the BB cream craze. I bought a number of them and I was very impressed with the effects. Although I definitely don't need any more of them for the time being I sometimes can't resist the desire to try out something new.
And I'm glad I can't cause otherwise I would never discover Skin 79 Snail Nutrition BB cream.

Skin 79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream has all the benefits which have made BB creams so popular. It applies like a facial cream, although its sold in only one shade it manages to self-adjust to my skin tone, sheer as it is it evens out my skin tone magically. Like all BB Cream I've used it has moisturising, nourishing, anti-wrinkle and sun protective features. 
So what makes Snail Nutrition BB cream so special?
The answer is obvious: snail secretion filtrate which is one of the main ingredients of this BB cream. My face is absolutely incredibly smooth after using this BB cream, you can really feel it as you glide your hand along your face. I have never experienced anything like this with any cream or foundation.

The shade is quite neutral beige which, when sheered out, reveals some pink undertones to it. Definitely the shade is better suited for fairer complexions, though I must say its self adjusting properties are amazing, so who knows, it might suit darker  skins as well.

As for oil control unfortunately this BB cream is not particularly targeted at oily skin types and this is the only disadvantage of the product. On warmer days I need to use a primer to prevent my face from looking too shiny.

The Snail Nutrition BB cream is rather strongly scented, to me it's a kind of unisex to masculine smell. I like fragranced products but this scent is not the strongest side of this product for me.

I bought this BB cream in a mini size container (15g) which looks exactly like all these tubular Skin79 containers but slimmer, very elegant and handy. I wish I'd bought it full size cause I wouldn't need to repurchase so soon!

  3. nice review :) Can't wait to try this, shame it doesn't do well in controlling oily skin though, my forehead and nose get quite oily!


    1. the formula is excellent, but I finally ended up giving this one to my mum who is much less oily than me. She loves this BB cream madly.
