Review : Skin Food Good Afternoon Apple Cinnamon Tea BB Cream SPF 36/PA ++

Hi there, today, I have for you a new BB cream from Skin Food from the line Good Afternoon Series. It has five variants that are specially formulated for different skin types, ranging from dry, dull to oily. I have been trying out the Apple Cinnamon one and here's my thought of it.

Skin Food Good Afternoon Apple Cinnamon Tea BB Cream SPF 36/PA ++

A long-lasting BB cream that helps maintain bright morning skin throughout the day without darkening or smudging.

A brightening BB cream that re-illuminates skin with apple extract and detoxifies impurities with cinnamon, promoting a more even and brighter skin tone.

How I Use It
I squeeze a fingertip length on the back of my hand and dotting it on my forehead, cheeks, chin and nose. Afterwards, I just pat it gently to blend with my fingers.

What I Like About It
  • The price is quite cheap compared to most BB creams like SKIN79, Etude House, Holika Holika, etc, starting at Rp 90,000
  •  The size of the tube is very travel friendly since it can fit into most makeup bags
  • It has a scent of apple and tea, but soon fades away a few minutes after blending
  • It instantly brightens my complexion and evens out my skin tone, i.e. reducing the redness on my cheeks, nose and mouth
  • Blends easily, giving smooth finish
  • It has sheer to medium coverage, able to cover mild to moderate acne scar (not pitted ones)
  • It lasts around 4 hours on my face, if I don't sweat
  • So far, it hasn't given my skin any bad reactions
  • This BB cream feels lightweight and not sticky or greasy
What I Hate About It
  • I can only still find it at online shops
  • It doesn't control excess oil wonderfully

Excuse the messy hair, I just woke up ^^;;
My right cheek that has red acne scars

My left cheek that has a single sun spot and a few mild acne scars

My nose and cheeks that has enormous pores
Overall, I love the texture and finish of this BB cream. However, since it IS a BB cream, it doesn't have super long lasting staying power. The color matches my skin tone better compared to SIN79's.

I would recommend this to :

  • Someone who has dull skin with the shade light to light medium
  • Someone with normal to dry skin type
  • Someone who won't mind the lack of coverage for deep and severe acne scars
