Packaging: I think that Missha's Cho Bo Yang has really good quality packaging and suits the price. It looks a lot more mature and medicinal/herbal-y than a lot of other BB creams. I believe that this line is more for mature skin, and the packaging reflects that. The packaging is so reflective too, haha! You can see my taking pics with my phone in the above pictures :D
The BB Cream is in a thin plastic squeezy tube thing (can't think of a more appropriate way of phrasing it), so it's fairly hygienic. I've never had an issue with accidently squeezing too much, which is nice. If you look below, you can see that there's that little 'locking' mechanism on the sides of the thing (?? whats it called again), so you don't have to worry about the cap becoming unscrewed and covering your makeup bag with expensive BB cream! I have absolutely no complaints about the packaging (:
Super shiny but nice!
You can see a picture of my boyfriend in the background! SUCH A CUTIE PIE
Swatch: Right out of the tube, the BB cream doesn't suit my skin. It's slightly too dark and yellow, even after being blended in. However, once it's on my face for 20+ minutes, it oxidizes to match my skin absolutely perfectly. It's fantastic and amazing and makes me feel super pretty and cute. The cream itself is very thick and creamy, but on your skin it feels light and non-masky (Lioele's Triple the Solution kind of had a tendancy to feel mask-y after a few hours for me). It blends very easily and smoothly :)
Results/Coverage: Cho Bo Yang is a medium/full coverage BB cream that you can't really make full. You can't add layers of it without it looking cakey- but honestly the medium/full coverage it does offer is pretty great. It covers up any hyperpigmentation marks, redness, and spots I have really well, as well as just making my skin look brighter and glow-y. It also does a really great job of hiding pores! :D It makes my skin feel very soft and smooth while I have it on, and doesn't highlight dry spots.
It has a matte/semi-matte finish with pretty good oil control. By the end of the day my face is more 'glowy' than oily, but I'm not sure how it would work on ladies with oily skin. I'm sure with some powder it would be fine :D I'm not sure what else there is to say, beyond that I absolutely love it and will continue using it unless the two BB creams I have in the mail are any better.
Before & Afters
You can see my Animal Crossing poster in the back, as well as my Juju Aquamoist Vitamin C emulsion haha
It doesn't quite match my skin (yet!), but soon it will. As you can see, redness near the nose and some spots I have are covered up really well. You can't see in this picture, but it also does a very good job of covering my pores. :)
I don't know what I'm looking at.
Sorry for the dramatic picture, I was trying to show how it didn't quite match my neck (at this point!). Like 20 minutes after I took this pic I checked again and it was perfect C: But yes, you can see that it does a very good job of covering any redness!
- matches my skintone (NW15-20) beautifully after oxidizing
- medium-full coverage
- easy to blend
- good SPF
- doesn't highlight dry patches
- matte/semi-matte finish
- leaves my skin feeling really soft and smooth
- basically amazing
- kind of expensive, depending on where you buy it
- can take awhile to fully oxidize
