Review: Skin Food Aloe BB Cream

I've read sooo many raves about BB creams here in Blogspot. Being the "Ms. Curious" as always. I've researched and asked people where I could purchase it. But the most popular ones are only available on Ebay and resellers that they're just too pricey for me. So I tried the one that's locally available first "The Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream".

I chose this because the lady on the store told me that this one is for the combination skin type. What it says: Rich in extracts of Aloe, which has powerful ability to soothe skin, it protects your skin from irritation caused by UV rays and has a soothing effect to your skin. It makes your skin luminous and provides moisture and covers blemishes.

My thoughts about it:

- I had "big issues" with my skin these past few months. I don't know if it's something that I ate or the environment that caused my breakouts but I really felt bad. It was just recently that my skin started to clear off. I've been using this BB cream for almost 2 months now and it really works for me. I really have sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate my skin. (I still want to try the other bb creams though teehee.) Now my only problem is acne scars which I notice are slowly fading. Thank God!

- Some says that you can use it as a foundation. True...but only if you have a good skin. It doesn't cover my scars so I still have to use a mineral foundation and concealer. But it serves as a very very good makeup base. I like it!

Skin Food Aloe BB Cream and Oceanmist Foundation is the perfect pair for me. Too bad I've already finished my Oceanmist. I don't know if I will repurchase...shipping fee is just too much! Hope I could find a reseller here.

- "It makes your skin luminous". This is so true (for me) =D. A friend even asked me what I'm using on my face because according to him, I have nice skin. hahahaha! I just can't help but laugh.

- It comes in two shades - #1 and #2 - the former being the lighter one, while the latter being the darker one. Limited choices..but I'm so lucky to have a match =D

I used this BB cream in my pic below =D

Thanks all...Ciao! =D

Hi Ms. Kim!

Just stumbled on your blog now...wish I had done it earlier! Anyway, I would like to know how much Skin Food's BB Cream is because the nearest Skin Food outlet is in Mall of Asia and I don't go there often. Thank you and your review was very helpful! :)

Hi Anna! This is a super old post haha. Hmmm I'm not sure of the exact price but if I remember correctly it's less than a thousand. Sorry for the late answer and thanks for visiting my blog :)
