Missha BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++ Review

What is BB Cream?
BB cream stands for Blemish Balm Cream that gives the face a natural coverage and evens out the skin tone hiding your blemishes. When you are having a dilemma with your foundation and eye concealer that cakes out for longer hours, BB creams could be a replacement for those and giving you less worries and less retouch. It also has SPF protecting our skin from the rays of the sun.

What I didn't know!
I used BB cream from a different brand when I was in college and what all I know about BB cream is a replacement of foundation but upon browsing through online, I've learned that Missha BB Cream "is formulated as an after-treatment cream to help patients who have gone through laser skin surgery to soothe and regenerate skin" and I didn't know that it has a formulation for anti-wrinkle. Makeup base, SPF 42, anti-wrinkle, skin whitening, and a moisturizer, I decided to buy the small version that costs P799.00 (20 ml) for trial.
Missha BB Cream no.23

Free Sample
The SA gave me a BB boomer and a facial foam to try it. BB boomer is a primer so it means that it is applied first before the BB cream to enhance the effectiveness of the BB cream.

Upon trying it, I have noticed this pinkish effect as seen below on my index finger.

Claiming for Giving Whiter Skin?
The fairness of my skin is very noticeable and even my colleagues told me so! It has high SPF which is very recommended for a working boss like me that strays everywhere plus I like its smell. I'm really going to stick with these brand and will explore their other products too.

Never forget to dab loose powder or loose mineral foundation for final touch to avoid the sticky feeling. Remember, BB cream is a moisturizer too!

They have different kind of shades depending on your skin color. Feel free to ask the SA as they are accommodating and knowledgeable to the product. They really know what they are selling. What I have is the no.23.

That's all for now!


  1. BB cream is formulated with so many skin benefits and anti-aging is one of them. But they are also formulated bak then with too light shade for me so I don't use it much. But lately they make them with my skintone so I'm learning to embrace it. But still foundation is the best for me :)

    1. AWW.. YOu're still gorgeous anyway. ;)

  2. I looooveeee this BB Cream!! :D I've been using this for 2 years now!!! :D

  3. I haven't tried any BB Cream, but I'm planning to. I will consider this if I plan to buy na. Thanks! :)

  4. Hi! FYI, BB means Blemish Balm. :) You don't have to post this comment. I just wanted you to know, before anyone pokes fun of you.

    1. hello sis. thanks for correcting my typo error. carried away with the SH endings. hahaha!

  5. Missha is one of my favorite Korean brands. I have quite a handful of Missha products in my stash, since they almost always go on sale in Korea, hehe. My favorite BB creams naman from this brand are the Wrinkle Filler BB and the Signature Real Complete BB. :)

    1. whoah havent tried any of those! i already have their aqua toner and the blackheads removal. will have the review soon! weeeeee.

  6. I haven't tried any BB cream in the market yet. This brand btw, is something very new to my ears. The brand of BB cream I'd like to try first is the Loreal. I'm wondering by now if what would be the effect to my face then.
