There are a few things you can count on me reviewing – eyeshadows, eyeliners, nail polishes, and foundation. Those are my favorite products and what I tend to buy the most. Since I’ve been on a BB cream kick this summer I needed to add to my arsenal and buy SKIN79 to see how it compared to my other buys (Missha M Perfect BB Cream and Boscia B.B. cream). One of the things that makes SKIN79 different is that they have a whole line of products including cleansers, scrubs, and a variety of BB creams. Their name for this product is a Beblesh Balm, which I’ve also seen written as Beblemish Balm.

The one I purchased from them is from the VIP Gold Collection and is called Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm, BB Cream VIP Gold Collection. I purchased mine from Amazon (shipped through Seoul Glamour) for only $12.90 plus $4.99 shipping and got it very quickly. I instantly used it and fell in love with this one too.
I’ve already told you what a BB cream does but in short it’s a foundation, primer, moisturizer, skincare treatment and sunscreen rolled into one. Skin79 comes in one shade which is perfect for my very fair skin. I don’t know how it would work on anyone darker than about a MAC 25 though. At first when I apply this I notice a slight gray tone to the color. I’ve read that from other people but never experienced it with the two other BB Creams I have. Within seconds though the color becomes one with my skin giving me an even skintone. I love the lightweight feel and how well it lasts throughout the day. If I have a hot flash I don’t later find foundation on my shirt since this doesn’t melt like foundation does on me.
SKIN79 Super Beblesh Balm has an SPF of 25PA++ (explanation of on my Boscia review). It contains whitening properties which are important in the Asian market more so than in other countries. It also states that it has “wrinkle improvement” so it’s got skincare properties to it.

I love the packaging on this. The gold jar has a pump and I get just enough to do my face. It’s sensitive enough to the touch to allow me to pump out the amount I need. I’m finding myself using this almost daily. I’m experimenting with my true foundations but I probably won’t go back to those full time until the weather turns cool. At this price and this quality Skin79 Super BB Balm comes highly recommended. — Marcia
