My 1st Review.. BB cream..

So, as I promised, I'm gonna review my 2 BB cream that I just bought when I went to Bandung for holiday. My USB cable was missing the other day, so I can't upload the photos, but now I found it (Yay!), I can finally post this review.
First, The Face Shop Quick & Clean BB Cream. It's IDR 199k (cheaper than Missha!)
The product description from the web is:
Concept: It is a tinted-moisturizer-like balm that provides light coverage and skin-caring functions at the same time. It can replace foundation or can be worn under foundation for extra coverage.
Description: 1.It provides a light and very natural coverage with Healthy Glow. 2. Contains blemish-fighting ingredients. (Soothing + Antibacterial)3. Oil-free type. 4. Creates veil to make skin appear smoother.
Well, I just love the packaging (just so you know, green is one of my fave colour, I have a Daihatsu Xenia in Green Metalic colour! ^^).. It's smaller than the Missha M BB Cream, this TFS is only 35ml, while Missha is 50ml. TFS BB is scented with grapefruit scent (I think so, correct me if I'm wrong..) which I also love.

From the texture, it's not as thick as the Missha, it's like a lightweitght lotion, really soft..
Blending.. It's more like a moisturizer to me, don't you think?
It's really like it created a veil to my skin, make it more shiny and glow. And it' s very adaptable with my skin tone. Love it! ^^
Second, the Missha M BB Cream. I bought it for about IDR 275k (quite expensive here in Indonesia, because of the tax and all that stuff..) Cute packaging, with all the silver colour, really glamour..
In the website, the product description was: "MISSHA M BB Cream is a natural care cream for sensitive skin, naturally covering the irregularities on the skin as well as improving skin texture. Botanical ingredients, such as mugwort and pumpkin, and the nutritional ingredients keep skin moist and silky. This 4 in 1 multifunctional cream soothes, moisturizes, protects and covers the skin and can be used instead of makeup base and foundation."
It's scented, it's similar with the smell of any cosmetic, like the smell of a loose powder. But it's okay, I have no problem with scented products. And when it's tested to my hand, here it goes.. I realize that it does have a thick texture when you first put it out, but when I blended it, it's all become light and soft texture. The colour also a lil bit greyish (yes, I noticed that), but it'll change after it touches your skin. It adapted my skin very well, after all, I have a yellowish AND pink undertone (yeah, because I'm Indonesian-Philipines-Chinese), so it's kinda hard to find base that suits me well.

It's thick, but it's soft and easy to blend

Voila! It matches my skin.. ^^

For the comparison: Well, I must say that Missha BB Cream is more suitable for outdoor using or if I have any special occasion. Because it can hold the face powder much better rather than TFS BB (I've tried it on for several times), and also gives more coverage to your face.TFS is so sheer, it's like a very light tinted moisturizer. While Missha i's like a very light foundation, but it's like wearing nothing at all, really. But the downside is, Missha M BB Cream tend to make your skin very oily. I have to wipe out excess oil from my face every 1-2 hours! That was quick.. Other than that, it's a great product. It doesn't give me any breakout, no matter how long I use it. The TFS BB is more suitable for at home-using. Because it's like a moisturizer, and can bear with oily skin for 3-4 hours until I have to wipe out the oil from my face. Me likey.. ^^ Which one will I buy again?? Probably TFS BB.. Why? Because what I want is a BB cream, not a foundation. And it controls my oily skin better.

So, here they are, the minusses and the plusses. See you at the next review!!! Ta..ta.. ^^v
