Korean goodies: Missha B.B. Boomer review

When I first read the description of the product I thought it was not suitable for my oily skin due to its content of pearl pigments. The cream promises to make my skin more radiant and moisturised which in some cases means greasy.

Not in this case. 
To my surprise, although the cream most certainly does have pearl ingredients, they don't produce the heavy glow I feared so much. The cream makes my skin look nice and fresh. It absorbs quickly and leaves quite matte and non-sticky finish.

I suppose this finish really does boost the adherence of BB creams and foundations but such dry finish makes it simultaneously more difficult to apply. I can't really say if it prolongs the wera time of BB creams. This depends on so many different factors, ranging from individual skin types, through BB cream types to external conditions like temperature or air-conditioning.

I really like this cream and it's earned its place on my extensive wish list.

EDIT: I forgot to mention one thing I don't like about the cream: the smell. It smells like savon de marseille in its most basic and non-perfumed form. Not my favourite smell at all. 

This sample was sent to me by Bellogirl who is my trusted e-bay seller and now she runs her own website

  1. too bad this doesn't fare well on my face :/

  2. Have you tagged all of your Korean posts (and I'm just missing it??)? I joined blogspot to discover organic products but have been lured into the Asian cosmetic world instead hahaha, but it's always thrilling to find an English review blog :D it would just be much easier to navigate all your posts if I could just search the "Korean goodies" tag urgh lol. Thanks for all of the reviews though *__* super helpful!

    1. Yeah, I suppose I did tag my Korean posts (most of them at least). Unfortunately my blog won't be much help for anyone interested in organic products. The popularity of such products in Poland is low and hence their limited availability. I'm not even trying to delve in this area cause it may end up in frustration with the impossibility of getting the products I want. I tend to stick to my Korean goodies instead ;)
