Hi everyone,, Just a quick post with regard Skinfood Gingko Green BB Cream. I purchased this online for 525 pesos. I was really confused in choosing which bb cream variant from skinfood is the best. And well, I got the most unliked of all 4 which is Ginkgo BB cream. This is the least purchased of all Skinfood bb creams here in the Philippines and like others say also in Korea because this has no SPF. I heard Skinfood outlets here have not been stocking up on this product due to low sales. Actually, I bought this due to Khymm's enticing review. The consistency of this bb cream is way thicker than Missha's Perfect Cover bb cream. At first, I find a hard time using this . I find it really hard to blend. In the long run, I have mastered the technique of applying it (i initially apply a thin layer of moisturizer) and right now I am really loving it!!!I have been using this from the moment I got it. It really brightens my face after application. Compare to Missha which oxidizes on me (i really find it weird because lately everytime I used my Missha my face turns dark and dull.. I don't know why.. As far as I know I am not acidic..) The coverage is sheer to medium. Further, I love that it keeps my powder stay put (Disclaimer: Take note I have dry skin. Others say that its oil control is not good at all.. ). It is also scented with light almond fragrance.. Not alluring at all in my opinion but bearable because the scent is really not that overpowering. Nevertheless, I will not repurchased this product since I wanted to try other bb creams.
