Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream

How I wish that I eat my food just like how I finish a tube of bb cream.  I don't know why others can finish a tube of bb cream or a foundation or a cc cream in just a couple months but not me.  Even a sample sachet of cc cream can last 15 applications to me and that this small tube sample of bb cream from Skin79 has been with me for months.

Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream
got it for around P135 at Hipstyle Online Shop

I don't know why I'm loving lomo-ish/oldish or whatever you call it in a photo but look how lovely the effect is, it looks classy to me!

Okay, so I am supposed to do something that will affect my future (it's actually my resume) but instead I am watching Youtube (so bad of me) and I think we beginners can learn something really important with the below video fromoiseau88 when it comes to applying base makeup so please do watch it.

Going back to the BB Cream, it says in the description that it is enriched with snail secretion filtrate with self protecting properties that maintains the skin natural and healthy.  Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream have 3 functions certifications from KFDA:  Whitening, UV Interception SPF45 PA +++ and Wrinkle improvement.

Other stuff that you might want to know that is in the packaging which by the way needs a lot of clap because it's just a sample tube yet it has all the english description that I needed good job Skin79 on this:

"Triple functions BB cream that contains 45% of the Korean Snail Secretion filtrate, it bestows sleek and lustrous texture to the skin by preventing skin damages, and keeps the skin moist and healthy by forming moist protection layer."

DIRECTIONS:  Use it proper quantity on the area of your face like patting at the last step of skin care.

Lastly which is the main reason why I'm using BB cream and why I got this variant out of the four from Skin79:

"Protecting the skin from both UV A and B, the tri-functional snail BB cream brightens the dark and dull skin tone, and maintains the skin clean and supple with its whitening and wrinkle-improving effects."

sorry about the blurry photo but this is the bb cream looks like
when applied, see how the little freckle/sun spot slightly faded?

I rely on bb cream's sun protection (or primers) and this one has SPF45 PA+++ (don't ask me what's PA+++ all I know is SPF30 and above is great on protecting the skin) which I very much like because I don't want to bother myself putting another layer of product for sun protection plus another trait that I find amusing with this bb cream is that it can brighten (and I bought this when I'm still obsessed in brightening) my dull face.

I'm not really into whitening, I sometimes hate make-up products with whitening promises because it will literally make my face white and thankfully this one; after a few seconds of patting, does not make my face white and it gives my skin a natural looking finish with medium coverage (I can still see my sun spots which I like because if I don't see them it makes me feel fake).

I like to combine this bb cream with either the Etude House Moistful Collagen Cream or the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel for a CC cream look.  But the best combination so far is adding 1 part of this bb cream with 1 part of The Body Shop's Vitamin C Skin Boost as it makes application so much easier and very even (no traces of uneven patches even if I'm in a hurry) plus it gives this matted yet moist, smooth and bright look and it doesn't feel heavy at all. Love it!

and this is the effect
it evens out the skin on my wrist with medium coverage, you can still see my veins but not so greenish and bluish anymore
it's also matted but has this lovely shine, though it cannot be seen in the photo

I'm not sure about the wrinkle improvement, I'm guessing I have to use the full size product to judge whether it can help in that part but anyway I rely on my skincare products in that department.

Okay for the smell because this is made of snail secretion filtrate so I'm worried about it and it actually has a faint smell of snail though my sister said she can't smell it (maybe the floral part smell overpowers the snail scent  part).  It's a good thing that after patting this bb cream for some seconds, the "faint snail scent" goes away.

Overall, I think Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream is a good one and I'm going to try the other 3 variant because I have some sample sachets plus this one didn't break me out and I'm assuming that the rest will have the same effect.  I'm a bit excited with the pink variant because of the good reviews and it made Skin79 in the bb cream limelight.

Thanks for reading.  Bye!


  1. This one seems like a really nice bb cream. I'm also using the Scret Key snail cream but the thick type. I like the snail cream a lot, but, in my case, it hasn't improved my wrinkles at all. For me it works great as a winter moisturizer, so I havent's tried any sanil bb creams, though I am curoius.

    1. yeah it's a nice bb cream but I could say that it's not the best. i have the gel snail from mizon and it also didn't help in wrinkle reduction guess all snail based product are more on the prevention side

  2. Just dropped by again to tell you that I already made the post about the Liebster award. Onde again thank you so much for giving me this oportunity.

    1. oh thanks and welcome. will definitely read it :)

  3. Hi,
    Nice review but just a tip: don't use vitamin c products in daylight (it may cause you spots), it's better at night. Also, if you want a vitamin c product that actually works, The Body Shop isn't a great option.


Share that amazing thought!
I do reply and you can also leave your blog's link so that I can visit it. Thanks :)
