I used one before. I forgot the name, but i threw it out because it made me break out. The first time I put it on it felt great, it had spf protection, was lightweight and had sheer coverage, but my skin became way too oily.


but did you use clean your face just like you have make-up afterwards.....and I think you need to choose the bb cream that's suitable to your skin

Yes, bb cream is more or less the same as your foundation. That's kind of a makeup, so you must clean it with proper cleanser.

TO avod break out, it's better to choose soem bb cream with lighter texture.

Since Innisfree is a company that emphasis using natural ingredients at Jeju Island, like green tea, camelia, olive, etc, I think that it's okay for sensitive skin too!

You may want to do some research first.

http://koreandiorama.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/mini-guide-to-korean-cosmetics/

Quote:
But the cheaply priced products should come with a warning: You get what you pay for.

These budget beauty stores offer skin care products that make various claims: whitening, anti-aging, smoothening, wrinkle-reducing, brightening, removing impurities, or all of the above although not all products have the data to back up their claims.

Sales associates in the stores tout the benefits of products with collagen, Korean herbs, stem cells, snails and even gold, but few of these brands can actually support these claims with thorough background research.

Customers are encouraged to buy the entire skincare set which usually includes cleanser, toner, emulsion, serum, face cream and eye cream. Depending on the brand, the total price of these sets can range from 30,000 won to 99,000 won.

For foreign shoppers, one of the most frustrating things is the lack of clear labels, instructions for use and list of ingredients in English.

At the store, the product names are written in English, Chinese and Japanese, but other information is only in Korean. This leads to confusion, misuse of the products, and sometimes allergic reactions to certain ingredients that have not been properly listed.

Innisfree is one of the few Korean brands to use organic ingredients certified by France’s Ecocert organization. The Magic Floral line uses Ecocert-certified ingredients from camellia, while Eco Recipe also uses Ecocert-organic herbs and extracts. Prices for the organic products range from 14,000 won to 28,000 won.

so Innisfree use organic ingredients

Nothing even "certified organic" which is a high rating in the USA are totally free of preservatives or there would be no shelf life. Also many natural/organic skin care lines contain essential oils which should be listed as they not only can cause allergic reactions but some should not be used by pregnant or nursing mothers or people with certain medical conditions!

Can you list the ingredients in English for these products you recommend? I personally won't buy any product without full listing of ingredients and I only see them listing the key ingredients.

Thanks for the replies. I totally agreed with DarkMoon that most of the Korean products list their ingredients in Korean only....I can't read Korean so really afraid that the ingredient may be bad to my sensitive skin. But it seems that Korean's technology in bb cream is quite advanced, so I wanna give a try

Thanks takiko for the information.

It seems that Innisfree's Eco Natural Green Tea Bb cream is really "Natural" which should suits sensitive skin as well.

May be I will try later when I finish my Missha bb cream pact!

I've been using L'Egere UV Whitening BB Cream with SPF 34 for about three months and really like it. I had been wanting to try a BB cream for awhile and bought this through Amazon. I wasn't sure when I squeezed some out of the tube whether it was going to work with my skin color because it's kind of dark and I'm very fair. But it blends in beautifully on my skin. I also thought it looked like it would be hard to blend on my skin because its kind of thick coming out of the tube. But I apply it with my fingers and have no trouble smoothing it all over my skin. I was also concerned about whether it would control the oil in my T-zone but I haven't had any more problems than I do with other foundations. And it stays on my nose throughout the day, which is a problem I had with the oil-free tinted moisturizer that I tried and didn't like. I did a search on the internet prior to buying to find the ingredients which are:

Water, Cyclomethicone, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Tianium Dioxide, Beeswax, Cyclopentasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Polyglycerin, Arbutin, Silica, Magnesium Sulfate,Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Quaternium-18 Hectorite, Methylparaben, Sodium Hyaluronate, CI 77492, CI 77491, CI 77499, Tocopheryl Acetate, Propylparaben, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Astaxantin, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Leaf/Stern Extract, Ceramide 3, Menthoxypropanediol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Fragrance

I'm not crazy about the slight fragrance it has but it dissipates very quickly so doesn't bother me long.

takiko - do you know if the Innisfree does a decent job of controlling oil? I wouldn't mind trying some other brands when I've finished the L'Egere.

Innisfree is really good at controlling oil! it also gives you enough moisture so that your skin will not secrete extra oil!

Thanks for the information, takiko.

I didn't realize there were so many BB creams out there, calorblind. I read your other thread, and did you know History of Whoo has one too: http://www.whoo.co.kr/global/english/product/seol_pdt10.html

the luxury bb is richer therefore good for winter use, while the whitening is more suitable during summer!

but they're better bb creams out there such as AHC, Sunny side VIP, but they cost a bomb!

Hi! Have you ever tried other Innisfree Eco Natural line BB cream like the Cover and Glow versions as well? Or has anyone ever? I would love to know. I also have tried looking everywhere for the complete ingredient list to no avail, let alone the english version.

I am currently using Ecobeau Natural BB Cream Plus, but I actually haven't opened the tube because I am trying the sample size Natural version they gave me with the Plus purchase.

I would love to know other's experience with Innisfree Eco Natural line as it'll be slightly cheaper alternative and easier to get to Ecobeau.

From what I could figure with the Innisfree though it is eco certified it contains essential oils that might not be appropriate for sensitive skin. The Green Tea BB cream lists orange oil as one of the ingredients in the featured ingredients. That can be drying and irritating.

The best thing is to use something really plain so there is no chance of reaction. Unfortunately that can be a bit boring but at least safe.

I am thinking of trying Fancl or Dr Ci Labo.

To the best of my knowledge Boscia is one natural brand who has managed to produce at least several of their skincare products without preservatives because of their intensely hypoallergenic packaging system. Many of their products are formulated and packaged in such a way that humans and minimal amounts of uncleanliness/air comes into contact with it, including workers wearing hazmat suits and being required to pass through double air chambers just to get close to the machinery operating the packaging system. It's almost a pharmaceutical approach(apparently the founder or Boscia believes his technique is going to be the new wave of natural products and we may be seeing more of this in the future).

Anyway, Boscia is launching a new BB cream available in the US this spring, so I'm curious to see what that will be like. I know since it's formulated for a more western market there won't be any lightening agents and the shades will be slightly darker, but that's about it.

I checked cosdna.com and typed in Innisfree and though there was no listing for BB cream, they are definitely not natural even if they use organic certified because of the other chemical ingredients. It's not possible if something is in liquid form as it needs to stay suspended if there are ingredients to thicken or moisturize.
