Here is a review about a product I bought quite a while ago on KoCoMall. You'll find the haul here. Here we have Innisfree's Jejubija Anti-Trouble BB Cream SPF 35 PA++. I used this BB cream several times now but it never really turned out like I wished it would turn out. And I really wanted to give it a chance over and over gain, but it just doesn't work for me. That doesn't mean it won't work for you, so I hope you will read this review before you close down this tab ;D
This BB cream is designed for troubled skin and it is the first BB cream from Innisfree that I tried.
Here is the description:
Innisfree Jejubija Anti-Trouble BB Cream SPF35 PA++ : Contained with the outstandingrejuvenating power,torreya seed extracts, and madecassoside ingredients intensively penetrate into red and dull skin caused by breakouts as it brings back your natural brightcomplexion.
how to use: apply an appropriate amount onto palm and then spread evenly over from wide to narrow areasafter regular skincare routine.
The packaging is a light blue and looks very clean and medical. It has the description in English and Korean which is great. The tube is not huge, is rather small and has a good travel size though. It has a simple screwing cap.
The BB cream has a runny consistency and comes in one shade only, which is a bit too light for me at the moment. On the pictures it looks okay, but in real it makes me look a bit like a ghost. It has a good coverage and a herbal scent. It feels calming on red spots and pimples and doesn't sting or anything. also it gives you a matte finish which I like.
So far, it seems to be quite good. But, as I said at the beginning, this BB cream doesn't fit my skin type at all. Despite the point that it only comes in one shade, it is absolutely not preferable for dry skin. My skin looks matte, but also very flaky and even drier than usual. It does not absorb easily and you have to patt a while until it looks blended. Also it settles very easy into fine lines. :(
I tried a lot of different ways to improve this point (using moisturizers and serums beneath) but it seems this BB cream doesn't want to work on my skin in any of these ways. The oil-control is also not perfect, actually it is similar to Missha's BB creams. If you have oily skin, I guess you'll have to touch up. On the other hand it might be,that this BB cream works perfectly on oily skin concerning the flaking and the application.
The tube is small and contains 30 ml. You can get it at:
- KoCoMall for US$ 7.48 (doesn't include shipping)
