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
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.

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.
Just average, like most BB creams.
