SKIN79 – Sounds familiar?
Whenever i think about SKIN79, BB cream will be the first thing that will appear in my mind…. I’m sure you can see their comprehensive of BB cream ranges in Watsons that caters to different needs.. In Korea, Skin79 is the very first skincare brand to introduce BB creams into the skincare category.. Ever since the launch, Skin79 incited a worldwide BB cream craze and also constantly staying at the top of the skincare charts in Asia (Like Korea, Japan and Taiwan)

Thank you StarAsia for sending me the new product for review.. 🙂
I know that BB cream will be more gentle on the skin (as compared to regular base make-up) but without proper removal, it can lead to clogged pores and the formation of imperfections on the skin… Personally, i will only use BB cream that feels light on my skin as due to my sensitive skin which gets clogged up easily…. To be on the safe set, i will only used cleansing oil to remove it thoroughly.. However, many of us ladies (including me) actually dislike the use of cleansing oul so i’m really glad that Skin79 has come out with the first self-bubbling 6-in-1 BB cleanser to remove all types of BB cream, including the toughest ones..
The ingredients in the BB cleanser and here are the main ingredients:
1) Chia Seeds Extract – Moisture and Nourish skin
2) Acacia Collagen – Nourish and improve skin elasticity
3) OBFN (Pomegranate, fig) – Improve skin vitality
4) Wichihagel Extract – Soothing and hydrate skin
5) Oatmeal Extact – Hydrate and form protective layer on skin
6) Maakia Fauriei – Defence against toxic and brightens skin
I love all things pink so the packaging really captive my heart.. hehehe… The pump bottle makes dispensing easy and helps prevent wastage.. Each bottle contains 100ml of cleansing gel …
When you first pump out the cleanser, you will discover that it has a gel based texture which will foam up when it gets in contact with air…
Equipped with Skin79 BB Cream, i’ll do a small experiment to show you the cleansing power of the BB cleanser.. I’ll also go through the steps on how to use the BB cleanser
To emphasis on the cleansing power, i will be applying a thick layer of BB cream on my hand….
After pumping out the gel cleanser, Spread the cleanser and gently massage it so as to ‘activate’ the bubbles.. As you can see from the photos, the bubbles have turned beige (Which means that the BB cream is being cleansed off).. Continue to massage it in circular motion in order to remove the BB cream thoroughly. When the foam has turned really fluffy, it is ready to be washed off.
With the BB cleanser, it works as a make-up removal and also your regular cleanser. So there’s no need to do double cleansing after you strip your make-up off.. To prove that it really works well and i don’t have to double cleanse, i will use a toner to see if it picks up any residue..
However, no make up residue is spotted on the cotton pad!
As i’m currently facing bad skin crisis (sensitivity and breakouts), i have steered clear of make-up for the time being.. So i’m using the Skin79 O2 BB cleanser as my regular cleanser in the morning… Personally, i prefer to use the cleanser on my dry skin.. After spreading it across my face, i’ll wet my hands and massage my face.. As the bubbles are being activated, there’s a slight tingling sensation… Then i’ll leave it on for it to work its magic while carrying on with my other shower routine.. After one min or so, i’ll wet my hands again and massage the foam till it turns fluffy.. To end the cleansing process, i’ll rinse off the foam with warm water..
Despite of my skin’s sensitivity, the BB cleanser doesn’t leave my skin dry and tight.. It also doesn’t leave behind any greasy / sticky film after cleansing.. Instead, it leaves my skin soft and supple.. Also, skin felt fresh and i did not observe red patches on my skin (Which i will normally get it if the cleansing product i used is too harsh for me)…
To sum it up, i’ll highly recommend this cleanser as it is mild on skin and has good cleansing power. if it works on my sensitive skin, it’ll work for you too…
This affordable Skin79 02 BB Cleanser is retailing at $24.90 and you can buy them in Watsons, Sasa, John Little and BHG.
