This is a requested post, lots of people mailed me and asking me about: "what's the difference between aloe and gingko? which one is better? what should I buy?" Actually, I am NOT a BB expert, make up expert or whatsoever, erh...really. I made a review based on my very own opinion.
So yes, I've reviewed this Skinfood aloe BB cream and also Skinfood gingko green BB cream back then in 2010, check it out:
Aloe sun versus Gingko green bb cream?
I think it's not about which one is better, but it's about choosing the best that suits your skin. I first begin by examining my skin. What is my skintype, do I need any sunscreen? such things. And here's what I came up with:
You might like Aloe sun BBC if:♔ You are working outdoors (cuz it protects you from harmful sunray, SPF 20 PA++)
♔ You are working indoors but exposed to sunlight.
♔ Your skintype is oily, and sensitive.
♔ You don't usually set up your bb cream with powder.
♔ You are looking for a BB cream with great oil control properties.
You might like Gingko Green BBC if:♔ You are working indoors and totally free from sunlight exposure.
♔ You need a BB cream with lots of hydrating properties.
♔ Your skintype is combi, which means you have a blend of oily and dry skin.
♔ You're looking for a BB cream with great beauty enhancing properties (Lecithin & Vitamin B)
I should say that Skinfood Aloe sun BBC is a BESTSELLER product from skinfood since 2010 up 'till now. I like it except for the stingy fragrance, and Aloe BBC has a better oil control properties, yeah. much better than gingko green. They have a medium sheer coverage, don't expect anything like what a foundation would do~! v(￣Д￣)v
