Review : SkinFood Gingko Blemish Balm (BB) Cream

*picture taken from Skinfood website*


What is BB cream?
* this started as a treatment for patients who have undergone laser treatments. This cream helps protect the delicate skin & helps it regenerate faster.

Skinfood Gingko BB Cream Product Info :
"This product is formulated with Gingko & Green tea extracts (anti-oxidant), which is full of beauty enhancing ingredients such as Lecithin & Vitamin B to moisturise and nourish the skin. This is a multi-function skincare product for both skin correction & skin protection. "

Product Size :
50 grams or 1.76 oz.

Price:
Php 1,150 or about $26 dollars

Shades:
#1 for very fair skintones with pink undertones
# 2 for fair-medium skintones with yellow undertones

Coverage :
Light to medium coverage. Depends on how much you apply.

I'm NC20 so I use #1 shade. It evened out my skintone, slightly covered my dark circles and pimple marks. This also gives my face a dewy finish if not used with loose powder. I how my concealer glides easily and makes it easier to blend.

Long-term Benefits of BB Cream when used regularly :
* evens out skintone
* fades pimple marks
* reduces pore size

Edit : After 7 months of using this, my very dark pimple marks really disappeared, its hardly visible now. I'm definitely impressed with this miracle cream! I even stopped using liquid foundation since I started using this coz it already evened out my skintone. I even bought the Mushroom Variant because it has SPF 20! As for my pore size, I really can't compare coz my pores are not that visible.

Rating: Out of 10, i give this an 8.

Wow, that is really expensive. I got the Gingko for $14 free shipping. Lol.
I think the site was...
www.skintouchx.cc.cc?
I ordered couple days ago. It seems okay. Hoping it'll come soon.
Anyway, great review ^^
