Review: Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream in #23 Natural Beige

This is the first full review on a product from last week’s haul and it’s on Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream (this one’s especially for you Harriet)! Right off the bat, I can say that this is the best BB cream I have tried thus far and I have a feeling that it’ll be a very tough one to beat!

Missha’s Perfect Cover BB Cream contains a handful of ingredients that are supposed to help care for your skin while also acting as a foundation, providing excellent coverage to hide blemishes and even out hyper-pigmentation. It also contains SPF 42 PA +++, which is incredible and means that it’s not necessary to apply separate sun protection before makeup application! The active ingredients in the BB cream as listed in the official website and their effects include:

  • Camomile extract | Anti-inflammation and soothing properties
  • Rosemary extract | Prevents aging of skin
  • Ceramide | Long-lasting moisture
  • Hyaluronic acid | Protection from bacteria and irritation
  • Gatulic RC | Promotes metabolism and energy for firming and moisture

This really is quite an extensive list of ingredients that shows that while this BB cream acts as a base, it is also actively looking after your skin throughout the day! I think this is really phenomenal. =) Makeup can be good for your skin too!


Another thing that I absolutely love about this BB cream is the packaging. It has a pump, which makes it really convenient to get the exact amount of product you need for your entire face. I find that if I want medium coverage, 3/4 of a pump is enough for my entire face but if my skin is a little more blemish prone on a particular day then the last 1/4 of a pump is enough to provide a flawless base. It does a phenomenal job in evening out my skin by cancelling out the redness and covering up all my blemishes as well as my darker acne scars. I really haven’t tried a BB cream that acts so much like a foundation in terms of its coverage, they normally provide sheer to slightly buildable coverage.


Left: Pump, which is small enough to not dispense too much product at once; Right: hand swatch – you can see that it’s definitely more of a skin tone shade rather than being too ashy/grey!

This BB cream has a spectacular selection of shades. Unlike other BB creams, Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream offers 5 shades in total and covers individuals with tanned skin. For me, shade #23 is exactly a perfect match. It takes around 5 minutes for the shade to reduce its slight grey tone and adjust to my natural warmer skin.

I can easily and quickly use my fingers to blend the BB cream into my skin and it looks flawless, no brushes needed! My skin looks very smooth and oil-free right after application, giving my skin a naturally dewy finish. It also does not feel heavy on the skin at all and I barely notice that I am even wearing makeup. The amazing thing is that the BB cream manages to maintain this for practically the whole day! I get very minimal oil by the end of the day – it is A LOT less than what I typically get using other ordinary foundations and BB creams. Considering how lightweight the BB cream, how it manages to do this completely blows me away.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this BB cream. Especially if you have oily and acne-prone skin. It does not cake up when you layer it and it makes your skin look as perfect and smooth as it can be! Furthermore, it contains so many great ingredients that it’s actually good for your skin! It’s a big winner in my book. =)


♡ Great colour range for BB cream standards

♡ Medium to buildable coverage

♡ Controls oil and sebum production

♡ Combines skincare ingredients

♡ Long lasting

♡ Fairly inexpensive

      Thank you so much Minh! ❤ I know, I had no idea there were so many great ingredients in it! You should totally buy it! 🙂 You're so lucky you have a store nearby! I ordered mine off eBay, but it was still cheap! 🙂

    I’ve always heard good reviews on Missha BB creams but I dunno why I never got one when I visited Korea. I guess the price point is quite steep compared to other Korean BB Creams but your review just made me want to grab one already :))


    • Dorkchops says:

      Thank you! 😀 ❤ It's really good at controlling oil, it's amazing! 🙂 I usually get oily literally everywhere on my face but now I barely get any. I have no idea how it does it! It sounds perfect for you!

    I brought a small size of this bb cream 2 years ago but I got the wrong shade (the darkest shade). I thought it broke me out but idk for sure 😛 maybe I’ll give this one a try again now that I’ve read your review!

      Oh did you get #31?! That one is really dark! Nooo I really hope it didn’t break you out! 😦 I’ve had no issues with my skin so I really hope it wasn’t the BB cream that caused it!

    This bb cream is popular in Korea 🙂 It’s called ‘Bbalgan(red) BB’. I haven’t tried it yet, but I really want to! Especially that it’s good for oily and acne-prone skin 😀 ❤ – Jee

        Yes! See if you can find it! 🙂 🙂 I know, it’s so convenient. I’m ashamed to say I wasn’t applying sun protection underneath my foundations but this makes it so much more convenient! 🙂 How is the MAC BB cream? x

        I have been long criticized about my sun damage so I put on SPF everywhere everyday and even make my son and husband do it. I am happy you are starting to because it is never too late! I love MAC’s BB Cream, but it is essentially like any other BB Cream just a tad pricer so I may look into alternatives. The only drugstore ones I find have SPF 15 or 20 and I need at least SPF 30 on my face so I will for sure be looking for this one 🙂

        It’s definitely important to protect our skin! 😀 I never even realised how damaging it was until I saw some videos on it! :O Oh I see, thanks for letting me know! 😀 I’ve never ventured out into Western BB creams so I was curious! Definitely look into Asian ones! A lot of them have great SPF! ^^ ❤

      I know! They’re all so similar! >< I really like this one because it's not white and there's a very decent range of shades so there's a colour for everyone! 🙂 You're welcome, I'm happy you found it helpful hehehe! ❤

        Yes! Finding a natural looking BB cream is really tough! This one is great though, it’s so skin-like in colour! 😀 Thank you so much! I’m so obsessed with it now, I’m going to order more hehehe! ❤ I think you should definitely give this one a try!

    This looks really great! Definitely a brand to check out. I’ve never gone for the BB cream crazy because of the awful range of colours from the western brand offerings! Great review. x

    Hmmm, your review makes me want to try this BB cream out again. Honestly, I had the most terrible time with it about 4 years ago. Everyone raves about it, but I found that #21 was really gray on me, that it would not blend into my skin and it had a very VERY obnoxious floral scent that didn’t go away.Oh well, time’s change. I’ll probably buy a trial size and try my luck again. Thanks for the great review ^^

      I love it so much! I was scared about that too but #23 doesn’t have a gray cast to it in the slightest! Mine actually has a yellowish undertone to it as soon as I apply it to my face! And I don’t notice the scent either after I apply it! That would bother me though if it didn’t go away. D: I’m sorry you had a bad experience with it! 😦 😦
