Review: Skinfood Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream SPF20 PA+

This is a review of the Skinfood Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream. I have the color #2 Natural Skin.  I purchased this when I went to Korea.

Blended

What it does: This triple-function BB cream provides UV protection and deep moisturization to skin with aloe and mushroom extracts, while arbutin and adenosine make skin clear and resilient.
(from Skinfood’s website)

Price: 12,900 Won (about $12 US) in Korea. Prices will vary online.

Pros:
- this was a great color match for my skin
- sheer to medium coverage
- dewy finish, good for drier skins
- contains SPF. However SPF20 PA+ is not enough for daily use. Be sure to wear a sunscreen underneath! 

Cons:
- I still needed concealer for my undereye circles
- This product took a long time to set. I would put on this BB cream, then do my entire eye makeup including mascara and eyebrows, before doing any powder or blush.
- I still needed powder to set this product. 


Would I repurchase? No.  This was not matte enough for my oily-combination skin.  I would recommend this for people with drier skin.

Skinfood has recently come out with several BB creams, but the Mushroom BB cream is one of the originals. This is a great product to pick up if you can get it at a reasonable price.  I’ve seen this online for $30, but I wouldn’t spend that much on it!


Hope you enjoyed this review!

16 Thoughts on “Review: Skinfood Mushroom Multi Care BB Cream SPF20 PA+

  1. Thanks for the review! I probably won’t like this one either since I have oily skin as well. And for $30…I think I will pass. ^^

  2. I thought that this BB cream was ok. Not great but ok. It was too sheer for me so I used it as a makeup base. Yes, it did take a long time for it to set!

  3. Thanks for the review! I’ve been curious about this bb cream but I wasn’t so sure how I felt about a makeup product that had mushrooms in it. I have dry skin so this may work pretty well for me.

    I don’t know what kind of mushrooms it has, and I’m not sure what the benefit of the mushrooms are!!  But I do suggest you try out this BB cream if you get the chance.

    Yeah, it was a little too sheer for me to use without concealer.  I liked the Skinfood Aloe BB creams more than this one, since I could use that one without powder or concealer.  Like I wrote in the post, Skinfood has been coming out with a lot of types of BB creams lately, so I hope I get the chance to try out some more!

    Actually, i think it’s just really sheer!  Skinfood Aloe BB cream works better for me (and is cheaper) so I’ll post a review of that soon!

  9. I have friends who swore by this and I’ve got friends who broke out because of this!  I didn’t know it is sheer though! I’ve always have this impression that it has a good coverage :)

  10. I agree with you, you do need a powder to set this thing. I use it mostly in the winter when I’m pale enough for it, and it gives me this awesome flawless look. Yes my skin is naturally like this….:P

  11. oh yeah! i do remember this one being kind of oily.

    I guess it’s good enough coverage for many people.  I have a lot of sun damage, though, so it’s not enough for me!

    Awwww I’m envious, hahaha.  I have so much sun damage!

    Monaaaaa I miss you!!!

  15. Hi, I have the same skin like you, oily/combination..What BB creams of foundation do you recommend for this skin type?

  16. It looks really nice but if it’s a great color match for you, prob too light for me (especially now that I have color from the summer sun).  I really found your review very useful though!  =)
