Hanskin Snail B.B Cream Review

For quite some time I have been looking for that BB Cream, CC Cream and cushion that could be my perfect shade match but I have never been that fortunate. I have long ago given up on buying these particular products online because I end up not using them once I realize that they are way too white or ashy for my complexion. Everytime I go to a store I would swatch endless of Asian base products and just be saddened by the thought that I couldn't find anything worth buying and trying.

Here I am today reviewing the Hanskin Super Snail B.B Cream. My initial thought on this product was... "Oh boy, here we go again with the ghostly makeup." But I needed to be positive and throw out all my preconceived notions on BB Creams so I can give a fairly honest review and here's my full and honest opinion about this product.

Let's start with the packaging. It is a lovely white and gold that is really my style. It has a frosted cap and gold pump which is efficient and keeps it sanitary. So far no complaints there. 

The Super Snail B.B Cream has snail slime as its major ingredient that promotes moisture and hydration as well as provides nutrients to the skin and is recommended to people who have dry skin. It has whitening and anti-wrinkle properties as well as SPF 30 PA++ to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays. 

Above is a photo of one entire pump of the BB cream. It doesn't seem much, but believe me, it goes a really long way. On the photo below is a swatch of it. It is not thoroughly blended out but it obviously looks 3 shades lighter than my skin. And here comes the ghostly look again, I thought to myself.

Above is a photo of me using the BB cream. I don't have a primer on nor any other base product. I also used my cellphone camera so the photo is not high quality as the rest above.

The best way to apply this Super Snail B.B Cream is to place an entire pump on the back of your hand, dot it all over your face and use a damp makeup sponge or beauty blender. Makeup sponges helps apply the product evenly, blot the excess and makes the makeup look more natural and flawless. With the use of a beauty blender I was able to apply a light coverage of the BB cream on my face without looking to ghastly white. I look paler than how I normally look but it is not such a drastic shade for me. For someone with a fair to medium skin tone like me, you can definitely get away with using this BB cream as long as you apply a light coverage with a makeup sponge. Of course, using your fingers and a makeup brush will give you a higher coverage but remember you should have a similar skin tone to the BB Cream in order for this to work on you.

My skin is in a weird combination state lately sometimes it's oily and sometimes it's dry because of the changing season. This BB cream is a huge help for days when I want to have a light coverage but still retain moisture.

I had a pretty good experience with the Hanskin Super Snail B.B Cream. I'm thinking I shouldn't give up yet on finding the perfect shade match for my Asian base makeup. This is not perfect but close and I really enjoyed using it. I'll put it to more good use over the next few months.

This product retails for 25,600 Korean won which is about $26.
