░ Skin79 The Oriental Gold BB Cream Plus Review ░

I see you're back again! Look at me typing up a storm for you. 3 reviews in one night? I think I deserve some ice cream after this.

Once again:
▲ All opinions/thoughts stated are my own and 100% completely honest.
▲ Unless otherwise specified, all products were purchased with my own money.
▲ If a product works/doesn't work for me, it doesn't mean it will/won't work for you. Again this is simply a review based on my own personal experience.
▲ I don't own one of those fancy high definition cameras, so please don't hate on the quality of my pictures. If it bothers you that much, you can volunteer to buy me a new camera. I'd love you forever 


The last BB cream I have to review is the Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream Plus. On the back it says:

SPF 30 PA++
KFDA 3 Function Certification;
Whitening/Wrinkle Improvement/UV Interception SPF30 PA++

The triple function BB Cream keeps skin shining and lifting through whitening and wrinkle care effect, making uneven skin tone and skin texture clean with rich feel of hydration softly cohering to skin and protecting skin from UV rays.

The English on the back of these BB creams is driving me insane LOL. Swatch time! (hairy arm strikes again) :

I also got this from Doll Eyes, but they sent me the wrong BB cream. I actually wanted the original version of the oriental gold, this plus version has a different color cheek/lip tint (⇀‸↼‶)

Color/Pigmentation: ♥♥♥
The color of this BB cream is more on the peachy side, which is nice when I'm suffering from breakouts and rosiness. 

This BB cream offers heavy coverage. Out of all 3 BB creams, this one is most similar to foundation in my opinion. I typically reach for this when I'm having a bad skin day and I need the extra coverage ( ̄д ̄〃);;

Texture: ♥♥♥♥
Just like the other 2 BB creams, this one also has a nice smooth and creamy consistency. It's almost a mix between the moisturizer-like feel of the Dream Girls BB cream and the dewiness of the Hot Pink BB cream.

While I do like the coverage this BB cream offers, there's a huge point that puts me off completely. It reeks of a rose scent. That might not bother some people but for me a distinct scent is extremely unattractive in a product. It reminds me a lot of L'Oreal products in that sense (which I also am not too fond of because of the rose scent). On the plus side, I do like the lip and cheek tint but I don't use it too much because I'm not a fan of blushes that aren't made of powder. Also the shade is not as orange as it looks like in the picture, it's more of a rosy tomato-y pink.

Dun dun dun! If you've made it this far, then it means one thing, it's time for compare and contrast~ Here's all 3 swatches side by side so you can see the color difference.

Out of all 3 of the BB creams I'd rank them like this (in order of preference):
  1. Dream Girls BB Cream
  2. Hot Pink BB Cream
  3. The Oriental Gold Plus BB Cream
Best coverage:
  1. The Oriental Gold Plus BB Cream
  2. Hot Pink BB Cream
  3. Dream Girls BB Cream
Best texture:
  1. Dream Girls BB Cream
  2. Hot Pink BB Cream
  3. The Oriental Gold Plus BB Cream
Best color:
  1. The Oriental Gold Plus BB Cream
  2. Dream Girls BB Cream
  3. Hot Pink BB Cream
As for availability and price, they're all available on the Skin79 website or sites like Pretty and Cute. The prices I've seen range around $15 ~ $20 or so? You can also check your local mall and of course local facebook groups that carry BB creams in stock!

That concludes my 3 part BB cream review~ Thanks so much for reading! I hope you found these reviews helpful. If there's anything you'd like to see from me, don't be shy! Let me know in the comments or ask me on my twitter/tumblr. Bye for now!
