The Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF20 PA+

Finally after pondering for long time, I got my Skin Food Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF20 PA+. I put a huge hope that it will not breakout my skin. I used the Feverlet HD before. It gives me lovely radiant and healthy look, plus nice oil control. But unfortunately it is not friendly to my skin. I often get bumps after use it a day long. I wish the Skinfood’s plays better.

This is the description behind the package
Rich with aloe, which possesses excellent hydrating properties and soothing effect, this multi-functional skin care product (UV protector and blemish corrector) provides moisture and nutrition to your skin while providing protection from UV rays
Description from the site
A skin-care and make-up in one, this cream leaves your skin feeling moisturized while it corrects your skin tone. Your complexion looks naturally air-brushed, clear and fresh! Rich with aloe, it excellently soothes skin and provides moisture. Also contains SPF 20!

The packaging is sweet. Just as the other The Skin Food products which always come in great outfit.

It comes in 2 shades, #1 (radiant) & #2 (natural). I picked the #2 and the shade matches the color of my skin. It doesn’t give me brighter shade as Feverlet HD does, but it doesn’t make me turn darker as well.
The texture is medium to sheer and pretty easy to blend. For your information, I always put moisturizer before BB cream. If I don’t apply moisturizer, I believe it will be a little bit hard to blend.
The cream has mild scent. I am not really sure what it is, but smells as aloe for me. Once being applied, my face feels light. It doesn’t leave any uncomfortable feeling. I finish it by dusting with loose powder.
The result is dewy and air-brushed look, just as what the site claims. The final look seems to be a little unnatural for me, but still acceptable. I see the cream doesn’t sink properly. The coverage is medium. Red blotches, scars, and big pores are not covered very well.

The oil control is pretty nice. I use Cool Aqua Gel from Dodoclub as the moisturizer and I know this gel gives me a bit too much hydration. But the BB cream does a quiet good job in blocking the oil.

I’ll share the progress once I notice visible further effects.

hi ^^ thanks for reading .. generally I like this one though the coverage is not very good. The reviews say that the aloe has the best oil control between the other skinfood's bb creams (ginkgo and mushroom)

Hi mapple, may be you try without the moisturizer or reduce the amount of the moisturizer, and see how the BB cream goes?
