Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream Review

It's review time!! Today we will be looking at the Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream. This review has be on my to-review list for daaays! I'm sorry it took so long. I don't usually were face make up anymore due to lazily. I only really wear it when I'm going to a special occasion or when I want to camwhore LOL. Today I happened to want the camwhore (you'll see why at the end of the post). I decided to use this BB cream so I can finally write a review on it.

I purchased this BB cream because at the time I wanted to try a new one since the previous ones I had tried failed to impress me.

Bare faced. Hello pores and redness!!

After make up. Goodbye pores but the redness of my spot remains

I'd say this BB cream has a light to medium coverage. It doesn't cover everything but the coverage is decent enough for my standards. It's good to have a little naturalness shine through; nobody's perfect. Because of it's lighter coverage I feel like I have no make up on when wearing this BB cream which is a plus. The shade is a little light for me but then I am a little tanned at the moment. I think it would match my skin pretty well when I get paler. This BB cream doesn't dry out my face which is good but it a little on the greasy side since it's made my nose oil a bit more than usual. I didn't test it with powder on top but I'd recommend it. So to summarize (with a few more extra points) for lazy readers...

Good Points

~ Covers my pores
~ Feels like I have no make up on. Natural look FTW!
~ Doesn't dry out my skin
~ Has a pump so hygienic
~ Comes with a tint for cheeks and lips
~ The undertone isn't as grey like most BB creams on the market
~ SPF 25 PA++ to protect you from the sun

Bad Points

~ Redness not covered completely (medium coverage may not be high enough for some)
~ It may be too oily for some people
~ Doesn't match my skin tone at the moment

All in all this BB cream is pretty good! Better than the ones I've used in the past. I don't hate it but then at the same time I don't love it. Would I by it again? Probably not because I'd probably try to find a better BB cream if I needed a new one. I'm also trying to improve my skin's condition and focusing on skincare more nowadays so hopefully I'll have skin so near perfect I don't need to use any face make up anymore *dreams on*

Hope this review helps!


So I mentioned I camwhore today! Why? Because . . .

I have a fringe now!! (aka bangs for you international readers out there~)

I cut it myself yesterday *proud* What do you guys think?

I like having a fringe in the colder seasons because I can't have it in the warmer weather. My forehead sometimes getting too sweaty from the heat and it makes my fringe look gross in I have one ( @___@ )

My seductive face LOL

Ending on a normal looking photo.

Vain girls (and guys), raise your hands if you enjoy camwhoring!
How often do you do it hahaa~?


  1. I bought this too! : D : D I haven't had a chance to enjoy this, but I definitely will!

    1. Oooo really?? I hope you like it when you come to trying it :D

  2. Cute fringe!! ^^
    And nice review! I love bb creams :)

    1. Thank you~!
      Not sure if I love BB creams yet. Haven't tried enough to know ^^"

  3. I enjoyed the review and your pictures! You're so cute and pretty. :3

    I have a fringe too. :3

    1. Glad you enjoyed it and awww thanks ^///^
      Yay join the fringe cute xP

  4. sad thing that its not covers all redness =/

    heheh your ''seductive face'' looks cute xDD

    1. Yeah it is a bit isn't it ><"
      Hahaa I fail at being seductive XD

  5. Nice seductive face! hahaha ♥

    I bought this before and it got lost in the mail .. but yeah!

    I think it matches your skin tone but just a little lighter, but it's not that light. I bought the skin79 orange and it is waywaywaywayway too light. I got a little container and mixed some of the orange with missha's 32 (since I had a little sample of it) and then it looked right for my skin but aaa

    1. It's not very seductive to be honest :L
      Ahh that must have sucked!! I recently (well not really) mailed a parcel to someone and it turns out they never got it after like three month D: The post can be stupid ¬__¬
      Mixing is the way to go when a face product doesn't match your skin tone!

  6. Seems like a decent product, it covered your redness really well!
    I'd mix this with a foundation my color ;3

    1. Yeah it is pretty good. Way better than the other BB creams I've tried!
      Ooo I sometimes do that too :D


    AHHH I have this bb cream too! For me though, I found it to be super thick and kind of hard to use o.o I'm gonna test it out again during Winter though, since I stupidly bought it during the summer when my ski, was a lot darker too, so I looked like a geisha LOL.

    1. Hahaa thank you :'D

      Ahh it's a shame you didn't like it! Hope it works out for you when you try it again and not look like a geisha XP
