Skin 79 Absolute Total BB cream

Coverage: Sheer
finish : Dewy
oil-control : Poor
texture : creamy and thick, hard to blend.
color: I'm probably a NC20, and it's blending in fine.
smell: soft floral fragrance that disappear after application.

This is the first BB cream that I've tried. For my oily skin, I don't feel any oil control. (I've read a review that state it has good oil control, but it's not working on my skin). The finish is dewy and looks like my skin, but better. I like it!

Final verdict: Although I like the finish, I need better coverage and oil control. And so, the search go on...

Coogi Flowertox BB cream

Coverage: Medium
finish : Matte
oil-control : good (minimum oil after 7 hours)
texture : creamy liquid, so it's somewhat easier to apply and blend.
color: I'm probably a NC20, and I feel that this is a bit too pale for me. But still workable.

Overall I think this BB cream has good oil control, I put it on before work at 6:30-ish, and when I blot around 2pm, I have minimal oil on the bloting sheet. Usually I need 2 sheet around that time.

I'm not too fond of the result though, I prefer a more dewy finish. But I'm impressed by the oil control =)
The other BB cream I've tried (skin 79 absolute total) has very poor oily control for me. It does have a dewy finish though. I'll review that one later =)
