This review is based on a couple of samples from Skinfood’s Good Afternoon Honey Black Tea BB
cream I gathered in the last months. I’m actually really trying to get rid of my samples, haha. We’ll see if I’ll keep on doing so. This is the first BB cream I’m trying from Skinfood. I have reviewed the Vita Waterdrop CC cream before (>>here
<<) and I love it a lot, especially since the packaging was so cute. Considering the cuteness of the packaging, this BB cream is doing great as well. Keep reading if you want to know more:
Although, I only have had samples, even their packaging is typical for Skinfood and really cute. It shows an illustration of a bee and a beehive on the schemes of a tea bag. There are several BB cremes in the Skinfood Good Afternoon Tea BB line. In total there are five different ones: Apple Cinnamon Tea, Berry Berry Tea, Peach Green Tea, Rose Lemon Tea and Honey Black Tea. They vary slightly from one another, each having it’s own specifies. And they all come in two different shades, light beige (#1) and natural beige (#2). At the moment I tend to get natural beige, if I can choose, but in this case the samples were all light beige. Nevertheless, I can put it on and it is only a tiny little bit too bright for me, but it blends in well with the skin color on the other hand.
The description on the samples is in Korean, unfortunately, but you can read all the descriptions for the Good Afternoon BB creams on Skinfood’s official web page
The description from this BB cream says:

Apply an even layer to skin in gentle patting motions.
I’m always a bit skeptical when it comes to honey-scented products. There is a honey scent which can be nice and one which I absolutely can’t stand, because it is too artificial. This product smells great! I really do love the scent, although it wears off after applying it on your face, but the moment you put is, it is really a nice scent. The consistency of the BB cream is light and moist. It leaves a nice feeling on the skin and feels lightweight, too. The coverage is medium, but build-able. Actually, you can see in the images below, that it covers up nicely the heart I draw with a lip liner on the back of my hand.
You can see that the cream also leaves a soft glow, but in contrast to the last BB cream from Mamonde I reviewed
, this glow is not too much and I think even people with oily skin can put it on. Actually, it feels partly mattifying, too. So if you have dry skin, like me, I would recommend you, to use a moisturizer before, otherwise it starts flaking around the dry areas, for example around the nose. Unfortunately, I can’t get good lightening for taking pictures in the moment, so I have to leave you with the swatch on my hand.:(
All in all, I love the scent, I love how light it feels and I love the finish. It provides SFP20 PA+ and enough coverage. This is surprisingly a nice BB cream and I might want to try the second shade of this. I can recommend you to try this out, at least grab some samples (even the full size is not really expansive). Perhaps, it works for some of you as well.
