This summer, my face erupted with violent cystic acne and I believe that the culprit was Skin79 Super BB Triple Functions SPF50+ PA +++ cream.
Here’s a quick rundown of the suspected criminal:
Sanitary pump dispenser
SPF 50 (excellent sun protection)
Grayest oxidation that I have EVER seen in a product
Face appears ghostly white in photos
“Dewy” finish becomes “oily” fairly quickly
Must be applied to neck
Difficult to remove completely from every skin pore
Does not come with lip/cheek stain like the Oriental Gold Skin 79 BB cream
Does not come with mirror like the Oriental Gold Skin 79 BB cream
May cause violent cystic acne (from my personal experience)
May cause acne scars in severe cases
I was extremely disappointed. Skin79’s BB creams generally receive rave reviews. The orange version supposedly “makes skin bright and smooth, strengthens skin’s overall protection capacity and blocks melanin formation while giving elasticity to sagging skin.” I cannot confirm or deny the anti-aging claims. However, “bright and smooth” translated to “pasty ash gray” despite my naturally pale skin. I gave this BB cream a shot on multiple occasions! Sadly, I consistently broke out the day after each trial.
This month I purchased Make Up Forever’s HD liquid foundation. It was quite pricey so I have only worn it a twice. Have you tried any Skin79 or Make Up Forever products? What was your experience?
