Out of these BB & CC creams that I had 2 or 3 years ago, an old favorite – Hanskin Super 3 Solution BB cream, deserves a review.

Four years ago, a former Korean boss introduced this product to me and my colleagues. Everyone ended up buying one, not by force though. Hanskin was the first company to produce BB (blemish balm or blemish base) creams back in the 1990s. They also offer skin care line and makeup line for both men and women.
This BB cream has light to medium coverage, enough to cover up blemishes and attain a natural look. The downside is, it only lasts for 4 to 5 hours without powder. It also feels light on my skin and has a very matte finish which is good for an oily skin type like me. It never gave me any breakout. But I cannot guarantee that we all get the same results because each of us has a different skin type.
I have used this for more than a year, but not anymore. Some of my friends still like using it, though. But their stocks are running low and nowhere to find it around town. I’ve heard from a friend, who traveled to Korea last October 2013, that this product is no longer available at any department store in Korea. But there’s hope in finding this item in a Korean online shop. 🙂
Overall Rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Tip: The packaging for Hanskin Light Touch BB Cream could be deceiving. Don’t be confused between these two completely different products. 😉
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this BB cream or any other Hanskin product. Please feel free to comment below.
