Of Creams and More Creams

Who loves BB Creams? I do. Here's my current stash of BB Creams. They are all different colours but either they blend in well or I don't seem to care anymore about matching my face tone to my neck. (Well, actually that's not true, I don't use Legere anymore because it looks too dark on me.) Looking at this, it feels to me I didn't buy enough Hanskin!! I seem to recall I bought more than just these 4 from Hanskin. 001copy I read that BB Creams made some people break out or it clogged their pores. I haven't experienced that at all. In fact, BB Cream is the best base ever! LOL. When I use BB Cream, my skin behaves nice and balanced, compared to when I don't use BB Cream. So I'm a full believer in BB Cream's benefits. Though to be honest, I haven't tried many brands. I've only used Legere (in the past), Hanskin and Banila Co. (now). I've not tried the Skin Food Mushroom BB cream yet, but I liked it alot when I tried it at the shop. I've tried a sample of The Face Shop's BB cream but I didn't like it. I think that's about all I've tried. I should continue to show you some other random stuff I discovered on my trip. Today I show you some hand creams. I'm nuts about them. Can never get enough and always game to try more. And anything that says "rich" or "butter" will attract my attention. My hands always feel dry, not just the backs but also the palms, so I go through handcreams very quickly. 002copy L-R: Hanskin: This comes highly-recommended by Yumeko. Etude House: This has "Steam Milk" written on it. I wonder if it's something like "Steam Cream". Hanskin: Wait, this isn't a handcream! LOL but it's a blemish cover. I found it rather good for my undereye dark circles actually. Innisfree: Love the smell of this one! 003copy Found this one while browsing at the Narita airport. Mayugomori hand cream with sericin, an ingredient extracted from silkworm cocoons! It sounded quite scary to me, but when I used the cream it felt so good, so I just bought it anyway. I bought the face soap too. :D 004copy Another random item. This DHC stuff RAWKS. I flew into Tokyo bare-faced. Though I moisturised thoroughly, I still came out of the plane with red blotches and dry skin flaking all over my face! *EEK* I washed my face at the airport and took out the 2 samples that Yumeko gave me: splashed on the lotion then applied the cream. OMG, my face went back to soothed and normal! I'm saving these 2 for when my skin acts hyper sensitive! (Yumeko gave me lotsa stuff!! But I never got round to posting the stuff she gave me! I don't think I can anymore cos I used up alot of the stuff but thank you so much Yumeko!!) © Copyright. All rights reserved.

I'm becoming a believer of BB creams too, I used to break out from it but I only did cos I wasn't using a proper cleanser. Now that I am, BB creams are just so wonderful to me, makes me face less irritated and sensitive, I think! I do like L'egere, but just like you, it looks dark on me even after its blended. But it feels so good on! Today I didn't even use powder and the cream still stayed in place :D Maybe cos I have dry skin and it just drank it all up but hehe I love BB Cream! I want to try the ones you have too, and I want to try the Hanskin Hand Cream, since it was also raved by Yumeko! :D Hand creams + bb creams, my favorite topics lol

I LOVE BB creams! Hahaha :) I find my skin behaves too when I have it on.

How's it going with the Hanskin and Banilla Co ones? Yet to use the ones you helped me haul ;)

BB cream is very popular in Japan, being influenced by Korean cosmetics. I tried a sample from Dr. Ci Labo but didn't work for me.
My skin looked very unnatural as if it were painted, and it was not cleansed well with the face soup I've been using. :(

Many people say it's good, so my way of usage was not appropriate, maybe...I might have missed something...(?_?)
