Skinfood Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF20 | Product Review

As mentioned in the previous post, I ordered a few Skinfood BB cream samples to try. One of them is the considerably popular Aloe Sun BB cream.

I bought #1 shade for my NC15 skin. For the reviews, I use my arm as the canvas, and my arm – particularly this arm – is darker than my face. This arm is probably NC20-25.

Product – Skinfood Aloe Sun BB Cream SPF20

A multi-function BB cream that protects skin from UV rays and moisturizes skin with aloe extract, while achieving a clear, radiant skin tone.

#1 Radiant Skin
#2. Natural Skin

[The Missy’s Say]

Runny, like watery foundation

Strong Aloe Vera scent, lingers for a long time

Coverage: (See image for comparison)
I have Petechiae (pin sized red dots – said to be bleeding under the skin) on my arms, as well as a tiny mole. It makes perfect ‘canvas’ to paint the BB cream over.

I would consider the coverage to be low, and it look a little chalky if you apply too much. Not quite the natural look I was looking for.

After touch:
A slight tackiness immediately after application; dries after a while

My skin color profile is NC15 – but possibly NC20 on my arm. Skinfood Aloe sun has a pink hue, and even the #1 shade appears too dark for my arm; on face, it’s a shout out that I am wearing makeup. Not exactly fitting for yellow undertones.

Quite moisturizing, but not oily.

Staying Power:
Just average, like most BB creams.
