Review: BB Skin 79

On a day-to-day basis I cannot be bothered with makeup, I’d rather spend that time in bed.

But for those days where I have to go into Uni I like to wear a BB cream to protect my skin from all the rubbish in the air.

I know this is slightly off topic but one day I did little test to see how much dirt built up on my skin when I go to Uni compared to a normal day…it was disgusting!

After that I’ve started to wear a BB cream to protect my skin and I noticed a massive improvement to my skin.

I bought this one after my sister bought herself one and started raving about it. I had just finished my Misha BB cream and although I liked it, after pinching a bit of Nicky’s I was sold and bought my self one.

A funny thing I noticed is that my skin just seems to absorb it. Every night when I clean my face it’s like my skin has eaten most of the BB cream.

I bought this one on e-bay (no shocker there) and it arrived within 2 weeks, which was surprising considering it came from South Korea.


  • Good for your skin
  • £11.10 (postage included)
  • Sleek packaging
  • Bought on e-bay
  • Comes with two sachets and a small tube

Despite being stupidly pale this BB works for my skin tone, it’s not a perfect match, but with a bit of blending it’s fine.

The only con I can think of is I can’t find any information regarding whether they are cruelty-free or not.

I haven’t found anything to imply that they are not cruelty free which is a good sign, but I have sent an email to the company to be able to know for sure if they are cruelty free.

I will update this post when I receive their reply :)

    I went cruelty-free just recently and I really appreciate it when gurus are responsible and choose to respect animal rights =) keep it up!

    This is my favourite BB cream too! With the Peach Sake BB Cream by Skin Food , a korean Cruelty free brand! But, of course, they don’t write it on the packaging :(

    You might want to check out the Gold version of that Skin79 BB Cream – I absolutely love this formulation! It is matte and lasts all day, whereas I find this pink version (and the Diamond version, another of my favorites) does sort of fade away by the end of the day unless I’ve powdered it.

    I wear BB Cream on most days now, and have almost stopped wearing foundation. It’s so easy to apply with fingers – not much cleanup, covers well, and works for extremely pale skin, despite how dark it looks when it pumps out! I think it’s the gray/neutral tones of the Skin79 products… those are the only BB creams I have had success with, to be honest.

    You can purchase Skin79 products via here in the US, and my supplier did tell me that as far as he knows the product is cruelty free, but they don’t really say so on products in Korea, so I will be interested to hear if you get a different response with your inquiry.

    That is probably exactly what they said about Hitler, or worse, Mao Tse Tung! Dont ever under estimate the power given in this age to Lucifer (i.e., the first messiah!) and his followers! After all, he is the God of this age until the one chosen to replace him comes to do so!!! Soon, but not yet!

    Hey Klaire, I was looking in to getting this BB cream because you recommended it, and I came across a video comparing the real one to the fake…I hate to say it, but I think you got a fake one ):

    You got some very good ideas there. I did a search on the problem and learnt most peoples will agree inside your blog. In case you are an experienced traveler, you may know the ins and outs of travel to all parts on the world, and it is possible to have extremely specific ideas about what you would like to see and in which you need to go.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear. She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
