Review: Missha All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk

After reading a couple of reviews on Missha’s “sun milk” sunscreens, I was curious to try the “soft finish” one since one of my biggest pet peeves is using a sunscreen that leaves a shiny and/or white cast.  Also, I was on the search for a nice sunscreen that could also double as a primer or makeup base.

I had a few problems with it not working well under my BB cream, but after I learned how to blend it together properly, I really learned to love Missha All-Around Safe Block Soft Finish Sun Milk.  I know I’ll be trying out other brands when I’m done with this bottle, but I’ll probably go back to this since I really love the way it works with my BB cream to give me a natural, even skin tone and finish!

Review: Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream

I’m not exaggerating when I say I’m probably the pickiest person alive when it comes to foundations, including BB creams.  I have incredibly high standards (some would probably say impossibly high) and in the past I’ve mostly dealt with disappointment.  Usually because I have a hard time matching my skin color.  And when I do find the right color, it causes acne, or doesn’t cover my pores enough, or doesn’t provide enough coverage, or is too thick and looks like a mask.  Really, there are so many different reasons why I’ve never been able to find one that I really like, and I’ve returned dozens of bottles and tubes to Sephora over the years.

Despite my previous failures, I haven’t stopped trying to find the perfect foundation.  In the last two months alone I’ve bought and tried 3 different foundations, plus dozens of samples.  They didn’t make the cut.  I don’t even consider it worth my time to review them.  But I’m happy to say that I finally found one that I think is worth my time to review and to keep using: Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream.  It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty damn close!  And this product is yet another reason why I *heart* Korean skincare!
