Review: Missha BB Boomer

I was planning on waiting until after my trip to do this review but changed my mind.

I've been using the Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream and like it a lot. I also used a sample of the BB Boomer and liked the results so I decided to finally order a tube of the BB Boomer.




Sorry, I do not know why my pictures get rotated in blogger now. It's quite irritating!

I like the results that I get by using the BB Boomer as my primer. It helps to add a bit of a glow, is moisturizing and smooths out my skin. It also is very long wearing and helps to keep my foundation fresh-looking for well over 8 hours--whether using the Missha BB Cream or any other foundation. Although I don't often react to products, I can say that this hasn't broken me out or caused any adverse reactions. I think that I've finally found a replacement for my Dior primer that I've been using.

While I originally wanted to purchase from the Missha US website, I have some major issues with their shipping policy to Hawaii so I've boycotted them. I found a really great seller on ebay: ideaseller_kr. His prices are reasonable and he ships out super fast. I've purchased twice from him and am extremely satisfied.

I just started using the Missha BB cream a month ago and really like it, I think I will have to visit my local Missha shop and try this out now.

There are many good sellers on Ebay of Korean products and they give many freebie too. xD I think there are some good Korean cosmetics that are equally as good as high end brands.

@Brianna--Aaaahhhhhhhh, you're so lucky that you have a local Missha shop! Even when you move back to the states, you'd probably be able to purchase from the Missha US website with no exhorbitant shipping prices, unlike what they charge to Hawaii, which I still don't understand and agree with.

True, I just found the shop when I was walking around after work a couple of weeks ago. After looking at the prices on the US website, I am considering stocking up before we move or asking my friend who is going to Korea to buy some for me. The BB cream I want there is only 583 yen, here its 2500!

Kat, which Dior primer is your fave? could it be diorsnow? hehe cause i like that one, HG material for me! Anyway, this sounds so interesting, the name is really catchy! BB boomer BB boomer ZOOOM! hahaha ok im going to stop acting like a child now. :P

i thought BB creams are "all-in-one" products, didnt really realize it still needed a PRIMER to enhance the wear of BB creams! hehe ;)

Happy Monday! have a great week ahead! :)

@Brianna--My friends who always travel to Korea and Japan will ask me what I want them to bring back for me. I'm slowly figuring out what I want from Korea. Fortunately, there are also good and inexpensive ebay shops to buy from too.

@coffretgorge--My favorite Dior primer is Dior Capture Totale Multi Perfection Radiance Enhancer. I really like it but it's just too pricey. I honestly don't know if the Diorsnow is an Asian release cause I've never seen it here.

I hope that all is going well with you.

@Steph--If you get a chance to, do try it out. It seems to be quite good and very pleasantly scented.

Awesome review! I really hope to try this primer soon, because I love the fact that it's not with tons of silicones. I don't use primer often but I do have one that I use and it always makes a big difference at the end of the day :p
