Skin79 Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm Review

Hai all! Long time no see!

Apologies for my disappearance and lack of review updates and posts as I was so busy with work throughout the Holiday season!

Anywhoo... Since Natalie did a post on her all-time favourite go-to BB cream in her last post HERE, I thought I would do the same too *copycat*.

My all-time favourite BB cream must be the Skin79 Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm.
I know so many people have reviewed this product already but this is just my 2-cents... so read on... if you want....

It comes in a 40g pump bottle. So cute, shiny and pink!
I love pump dispensers as they keep the product hygienic.

I've had this for a good few months now, as you can see the wording is starting to fade thanks to my greasy hands rubbing it off.

Mine is made in the late 2013, so there is no authenticity sticker on it.

Unlike Natalie, I have oilier skin and am prone to the occasional zit(s). This BB cream is not too oily on my skin and gives me just enough moisture. 

I can wear it alone for 5-6 hours before turning into a greasy doughnut, this is with just plain moisturiser underneath, no primer and no finishing powder over the top.
If I combine it with primer and powder, it will last me the whole entire day, about 10+ hours.
Mind you though, weather in New Zealand isn't overly hot or humid unlike asia.
So if I wore this in Asia, I would expect the same outcome if I were to spend the day indoors with air conditioning, like a shopping mall etc.

It has SPF25 in it. I often wear it with a day moisturiser that has SPF in it to 'add' to the SPF.
If I am to spend more time outdoors then I make sure the total I wear is over SPF30.

Easy to spread, not yet blended

Texture-wise it is like any other bb cream, easy to spread and blend into the skin.

blended in for about 10 seconds

Blended in for about 1 minute, colour begins to oxidise to match my skin tone

The colour is kind of similar to my face but not really to my neck.
So what I do is spread it halfway down my neck, and powder my whole neck.
This gives a gradient effect and there is no line between my original skin tone and the bb cream colour. This way, no one will point at me and ask why I am wearing a white mask haha....

One thing to note about the colour is it comes out of the pump greyish looking, and when you put it on your face you will feel like smearing grey paint all over.
BUT..... it will later oxidise into the right colour!
So don't worry and just let it sit there for a few minutes.
It the colour never changes for you.... then too bad.... the bb cream colour is just not your colour then... hurhur...

Plain black eyeliner on bare back of hand

BB cream blended on hand over the eyeliner mark for about 10 seconds

BB cream left to oxidise for about 1 minute or so

As you can see in the 3 pictures above the coverage is medium.
It half covers up the eyeliner mark (and my mole.... hurhur....).
So it works well on small marks, half faded acne or zit scars, evens skin tone. Well, for me anyway.

Oh and lastly, the smell. It resembles very light sunscreen yet has some flowerly notes it to.
I can hardly detect it at all.

Repurchase? Yes!
