Today I thought I'd make a comparison between the SKIN 79 VIP Gold and Pink BB creams. I've often found myself wondering which would be right for me, so I thought I might be able to help you with what I know! Yay! ^_^
The Korean company SKIN 79 has many types of BB creams, however I find that the most common ones are the Pink and the Gold VIP. There's also an orange one, but I haven't had much experience with it nor have I found it very common. In addition to that there are several others, such as the Snail Nutrition BB cream (which I just discovered today that it exists and I now want to try it because of it's pretty white and gold packaging :3) and the Oriental Gold BB creams (some of which come with a little blush/all over color thing, isn't that cute?)
And now, some possibly useful information about the two:
SKIN79 Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm:
|Yayy isn't it pretty? :D|
SPF?: Yes; SPF 25, PA++
Colors: To my knowledge this only comes in one shade, however it does oxidize and adjust to your skin color pretty accurately. It starts out greyish, but turns more fleshy within minutes.
Coverage: Medium; here are some photos to give you a vague idea~
|And with the BB cream.|
There isn't a gigantic difference, however I did notice my skin tone to be more even and for redness to be un-reddened. A layer has pretty decent coverage, and a little bit goes a long way.
Recommended for: Oily/Combination Skin
Special Ingredients: Tangerine Oil (For lively skin), Arbutin (Aids in whitening of skin), and Phyto-Complex (Provides nutrition)
VIP Gold Super Plus Beblesh Balm:
|It's got caviar :3|
SPF?: Yes; SPF25, PA++
Colors: Also only one color, but this is just a teensy bit lighter than the Pink. A little bit.
Coverage: Medium-low; the coverage for this is just a teensy bit worse than that of the pink, but this may just have to do with how much I applied.
|Just a little bit worse. Not much.|
Special Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil (For nutrition and resilience), Purslane Extracts (relaxes the skin), and Madecassoside (Improves texture).
Here's a photo showing a comparison between the colors of the two, along with the SKIN79 Chiffon BB Mousse which I did a review of here.
|The Chiffon Mousse looks so out of place... o.O Poor awkward thing.|
I hope this was helpful, and I'll see ya in the next post :3
