Hanskin BB creams have quite a reputation and whenever there is a chance to try a new BB cream I’m super happy to do so. The Hanskin Super Snail BB Cream is the first BB cream containing snail mucus I’m trying, although I’ve heard from quite some other brands with BB cream similar to this one. I’m using BB creams almost daily, so there are many I’ve tried in the past and quite a couple I’m using at the moment. I’ve been very fond of Missha’s BB creams in the past, but I’ll be happy if there will be other BB creams that are according to my liking, too. Here is my impression on the Hanskin Super Snail BB Cream:
The Korean brand Hanskin claims to be the first brand having released a consumer used BB cream and thus to be the original BB cream creator from Korea. They have a lot of different types of BB creams. The price of their products is in the midrange, so they don’t retail for super affordable prices. The packaging design of their products is simple and mature, kind of elegant, too. I’ve tried the Hanskin Bio Origin Wrinkle Talk BB cream and the Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB cream previously and I liked them (read my review >>here<<). The Hanskin Super Snail BB Cream doesn’t come in a purple tube like these BB creams but in a white bottle with a pump applicator.
The white color of the packaging in comination with the golden pump and the milky cap looks very elegant and pretty. The cardboard box of the BB cream contains the Korean description only. This BB cream contains 15000 mg of snail mucus and extracts of marigold, and okra for moisturizing on the same time as giving you an even complexion. It is paraben free, benzophenol free, mineral oil free, BSE free and free of tar color. Because of its moisturizing properties it is addressed to people with dry skin. I’m always happy about moisturizing products, because I have dry skin on the one hand, and winter is approaching and the cold wether makes my skin feel even drier. Also, this BB cream has SPF 30 PA++ and provides the skin with sun protection, too.
The downside of the Hanskin Super Snail BB Cream is that it only comes in one shade though. People with darker skin tone might find this BB cream to bright. The pump applicator on the other hand is really convenient to use. I love BB creams with pump applicators.
Luckily, the color can be adjusted to my skintone, although it is a bit brighter than my skin at the moment. Nevertheless, during the next months I’m sure the color will fit even better. It has a regular thick BB cream consitency with a medium coverage. It evens out rednesses and skin imperfections and leaves the skin with a subtle glow. For combination/oily skintypes it can be finished off with a loose powder especially on the T-zone.
Here is how the BB cream looks like on my skin. It has a bit of a grey undertone– a typical problem for most BB creams. It dissapears after some minutes though (I waiting some minutes before taking the picture). It blends in nicely after all and looks natural in total. In real life you will see that it is a bit too light for me but in the picture somehow it looks fine. When adding appropiate shading it even looks better. The consitency of the cream is soft and it feels nice and not heavy on the skin, maybe a tack sticky depending on your previous moisturizing steps.
The Hanskin Super Snail BB Cream retails for 25600 won from Hanskin. It is a solid BB cream nice for especially dry skintypes. If you have a lighter skintone and dry skin you might want to try this BB cream. I do like it and I will definitively use it up. But still Missha’s PErfect Cover BB is my favourite BB ream so far (although it has a grey cast aswell).
