I’m a huge fan of BB creams as well as light protection base makeup in general. What are BB creams? Since BB creams have ended up being much a lot more prevalent outside of Asia in recent years, I’ll let the authority supply an explanation: Wikipedia. For ages, I used the Skin79 Super plus Beblish Balm Triple function SPF30 PA++ (also affectionately just called the hot Pink BB) however I always discovered it to be a bit as well ashy / grey on me. I routinely mixed it with the now discontinued Kiehls Ultra Facial tinted moisturizer SPF 15 in Medium, which was as well dark on its own for me. The blend worked well, however it wasn’t ideal.
After utilizing up my last Skin79 BB cream, on a whim, I made a decision to try the Charmzone Natural Skinade BB cream.

I gotten this product at a regional Korean grocery store, called PAT Central, in their small upstairs cosmetics / vitamin shop. It expense $45 CAD (taxes included) for 50ml. I have not seen this brand or product discussed online, nor have I seen it in person elsewhere aside from that specific Korean shop.

I promptly liked the formula of this BB cream – it checks all the boxes for me:
decent sun security aspect at SPF 20 PA ++ – I particularly like that it utilizes titanium dioxide as well as zinc oxide as sun security rather than chemical sunscreen
doesn’t cause break outs
great colour match
good wear time
no added fragrance
It’s a relatively hydrating formula, consisting of hyaluronic acid, so it’s particularly great for the wintertime months. One unfavorable I would state about this BB cream is that it’s a bit on the pricier side at $45, however considering that I had been mixing 2 base makeup together before, the overall expense is less now. Another con about this (and Oriental BB creams in general) is that there is only 1 shade available. Since Oriental BB creams generally deal with a rather homogeneous group with a narrow variety of skin tones, I comprehend why this is the case. I would state this shade would be appropriate for those in the variety of MAC NC20 to NC30.
Interestingly, the product is provided on a medical product directory page, I assumption for the sunscreen ingredients. The site has the full ingredients listing so my work is done for me (click on the orange plus indications on that site to broaden the sections). A google browse likewise shows that it is available on Amazon.com
This tops all the other BB creams I’ve tried in the past which includes: Skin79, BRTC, Dr. Jart, Missha, Skin Food, as well as The deal with Shop. I’m currently utilizing up my very first tube of the Charmzone as well as have one more one stashed away. It’s a guaranteed suggestion as well as repurchase for me.
