As I already said, my addiction started when I discovered BB creams. I won’t bother you with any definition for that, because by now nearly everybody knows what a BB cream is, since the boom reached also the European and American market. If you don’t know what a BB cream is, you can have a look for it on Wikipedia, for example.My first BB cream was the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++.
The description on the Official Missha Website (USA) says:
The M Perfect Cover BB Cream gives an even and natural-looking coverage with the soothing, moisturising properties of a cream. It is suitable for all skin types including acne-prone skin, and can be used as a makeup base or foundation.
Whitening + Anti-Wrinkle + UV Protection (SPF 42 PA+++)

As you can see the list of the ingredients is rather long. I know, there are a lot of people that don’t like too many additional ingredients within the products they use on their skin. That’s definitely not the product I would recommend to those people. Nevertheless, this BB cream does its job! I use this cream for over 2 years know and it has worked great for my skin. It never made me break out or caused any other allergic reactions on my skin, although there might be many people freaking out if they see that this product contains mineral oils. I never had any problems with this BB cream.
This BB cram comes in 5 different shades:
#13 milky beige
#21 light beige
#23 natural beige
#27 honey beige
#31 golden beige
I’m using #23 at the moment.
This BB cream has a thick consistency, also you have to let it rest some minutes after appliance on your face. This helps the BB cream to adapt to your skincolor. Don’t be scared if it looks too bright at the beginning and has a greyish undertone. The color changes after some minutes.
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream has a good coverage. You can also build up layers to increase the coverage. The cream has a flowery scent, which I personally like, but those of who sensitive to scented cosmetic should not buy this BB cream.
I have rather dry skin, so I’m using a good moisturizer before and apply the BB cream on top of it, after the moisturizer absorbed into my skin. If I don’t use any moisturizer the BB cream will settle a bit in any fine line I have >_< I don’t think you need to use anything before applying the BB cream if you have oily skin.
The full-size tube comes with a pump, but I prefer the travel size tube because it fits perfectly in every handbag :) You can buy the full-size tube (50 ml) for US$29,99 on Missha’s offical page. Or you buy it for US$ 21.13 at W2Beauty
