[Open the Happy theme plays] It’s the BB cream challenge! I’m challenging myself. That’s a pretty lame challenge. A lot of people have been asking me about BB creams
and what’s it like? What’s the best brand? What should I buy? I don’t know what to do!
So I decided to buy six different BB creams ranging from, like a cheap brand
up to an expensive brand, and I want to do a comparison today.
These are actually Asian BB creams, not to be mistaken with the new American BB creams,
which, I’ve tried some, and they’re kind of not good, guys. So the BB cream
I purchased today to make sure that this is a fair fight
was for moisturising your skin and for partial coverage so if you have dry skin,
what I’m using today will be quite good for you. Coming in at the $13 mark
is ‘Golden Aura’ by Tony Moly. This is the cheapest on the list. Next up is ‘Water Me Pls’ by Clio,
and this one’s coming in at $14. We’ve got Etude House’s
‘Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit’ and that comes in at $15. Next up is Missha’s ‘Signature Real Complete BB Cream’,
coming in at $23.80 Skin 79’s ‘BB Super Blemish Balm Triple Function’
is coming in at $27. And the most expensive is Dr Jart Plus’
‘Rejuvenating BB Cream’. This is Silver Label and it comes in at $29. So, what I wanna do is a comparison
of the cheapest to the most expensive. I’m gonna actually just do a full split in half
and I’m gonna come out here in the sunlight To see what it looks like in real-time lighting,
and then we’re gonna see which one is my favorite in the end. Let’s go! OK, I’m starting with Tony Moly on the right,
and Dr Jart on the left. The cheap versus the most expensive. OK, so twist off cap is simple. [she hums to herself] It actually absorbed pretty fast,
so I might need a little bit more to actually put on. That’s how dry my skin is, guys! I’m not loving the container so far.
It’s like squeezing out upside-down toothpaste OK, one side. OK, Dr Jart time. Same kind of squeeze container, actually,
as the other one. Whoa, this one is really thick. OK, whoa! A lot whiter. OK, Let’s check them out in the sunlight. I will say that Dr Jart went on a lot thicker
when I started to put it on, I kind of felt worried at first
because it looked so white compared to my skin, but BB cream oxidises as you put it on,
so that’s why you can’t look at a cream and say ‘Oh, it’s not gonna match my skin’,
you have to actually put it on to see how it’s gonna look.
This definitely has major coverage. I feel like this part of my face
looks totally flawless. But it does feel a lot heavier.
Not like a foundation, heavy. Like a face cream or something.
If you’re looking for just a light, basic coverage, then maybe this is good for you, but I don’t think
it really covered up a lot of my dark circles Or, like, little pimples that were showing.
So this is might require. like, another powder on top That can cover something up. So… Bigger coverage, Dr Jart is gonna win this one.
But I don’t dislike Tony Moly, so…there you go. And now to remove all of my make up and to start again.
Oh boy. I feel like that scene in Zoolander,
where Zoolander goes to work in the mines and he paints himself totally black
to jump out and scare his father, and then he ends up removing all the black ink
from his skin using cotton balls. it takes him forever.
So I feel like I’m doing that right now. [echoing]
Merman! Merman! [water glugs] And, I’m bare-faced again. OK, I’m starting with
the next most expensive one, which is the Skin 79,
which comes in a very fancy container. And then the second cheapest,
which is the Clio Professional. I’m excited about this one
because it says it has Shea butter in it, which I use on my body.
I’m wondering if it’s going to be greasy or not. [guitar riff] First up: Clio. It’s a lot, uh, smoother to put on
than the Dr Jart one, which felt like it was oilier. OK, definitely could have used less because
it feels like it spreads really well, while the other one’s kind of absorbed quickly,
this one is just really good at spreading nicely. It has kind of like a silky feeling, actually.
OK, second one. I’m scared I’m going to, like, push really hard
and it’ll go ‘blergh’ [gunshot]
Eeeh! This one is a lot thicker again. OK, this is a perfume smell, that I do not like.
I do not want my face to smell like my grandmother’s jacket. OK. I am almost immediately not liking this one,
which is making me look really white and glossy. Let’s go check it out in the sunlight. OK, so the left side is the Skin 79, and
I actually do not like it personally. I thought that it smelt weird when I put it on,
like rubbing perfume on my face, it, like, took forever to rub in
and it looked really white and glossy and it’s just not my style. Especially considering
it is the second most expensive on the list. Mm-mm. And the other one is the Clio Professional,
which I was really impressed by. I told you I was excited about the Shea butter,
or the Sheya butter, or the Sheay butter, or however you say that. But it goes on almost,
like silky. It feels almost like a powder, so when you put it on,
it just really spreads nicely. So, even though there is less in here than in here,
I could have used less when I was applying this because it just spreads so evenly, while this one,
I actually felt like I wanted to add more So, I’m going to say Clio was the winner in this one.
Second cheapest. Like the second cheapest wine. My poor ass-kicked skin.
OK, we’re down to the final two. Interestingly, they both look the same. Look at that!
It’s really, like, the middles almost match each other totally. I wonder if that’s a total fluke,
or if they’re like: ‘in case you can’t buy this one, you can buy this one.’
Let’s start with the Missha. [pump clicks] Erm… …Guys…? This isn’t good! [pump continues clicking] Does this like…have to be unlocked,
or something or…? Not looking good, Missha! Oh! Oh, finally! Alright, well I’m gonna dock some points for that
right there. The forty minute,
Martina trying to pump out something out edition. I have way too much on my hand because
I had to triple squirt it out. Oh no! So perfume-y! Whoa! This one’s even stronger than the other one
I was telling you about. OK, Missha’s perfume smell is actually killing me. That one’s Etude House. Pretty drip-y actually. This one’s really thin. Like really, really light. It doesn’t feel like a heavy one
in comparison to Dr Jart, which felt like I was applying serious coverage.
This one feels almost like a light lotion and I could have used, like half.
Do you see how much I have on my hands still? Money-saving wise, this one seems
like you barely need to use any. OK, to the sunlight-mobile! Alright, Missha versus Etude House!
I was extremely disappointed with Missha because the bottle wouldn’t pump.
That’s pretty awkward. Oh, Missha! That’s a bad start for you.
Also, it’s really perfume-y, so if you want your face to smell like you walked
through a department store and got attacked by a bunch of women sampling perfume,
then go for the Missha. But, for me, I’m just immediately turned off by the smell.
Even if it covers really well, I just wouldn’t buy this again because of that.
The BB cream from Etude House, it went on really easily so the amount that I use – like I used one pump –
was actually too much. I could have used half a pump but the coverage is not as heavy as, say,
the Dr Jart one, which I thought covered perfectly. Like, fashionable supermodel one. I think if I was looking for an everyday one,
I’d probably use the Etude House and the Clio one because I felt like the Clio
had such an amazing finish, it felt so, like silky and smooth. And the BB cream
from Etude House, I just really liked how lightly it went on, but it still covered.
I already use Etude House to begin with, I actually do not use this particular one,
but my persuasion over, and Clio, I’m definitely gonna be looking into
because I really really like the Clio one. I think, if I’m gonna be spending money
on something, I would go for the Dr Jart. I really like the way that the coverage looked, but
it did feel like there was a lot of stuff on my skin. So I think if I’m having a really bad skin day,
like maybe I’m especially pimply, or red that day, I probably go straight to Dr Jart,
but I don’t think I’d want it as an everyday cream. So, my top three choices: $14, the $15 and the $29 one. It seems like the more expensive ones
and the cheapest one, they are not for me. These two were way too perfume-y.
So, my question for you guys is: If you use BB cream, what BB cream do you use,
and why do you use it. Do you have oily skin? Do you want heavy coverage?
Do you have light coverage? What is it? Let us know in the comments section below
so that we can share our favorites. If you want to try BB cream, but
you don’t live in Asia and you can’t buy it anywhere, you can actually buy it from Gmarket
by clicking on the link here. You will have to search for the BB cream that you want,
because they’re all individual stores. So, if you want to use the ones I am using,
I’m using Etude House, I’m using Clio and I’m using Dr Jart.

Now to wash my face for the fourth time today. [Open The Happy theme plays]
