    I use Missha BB cream (it's korean), it's great, tbh, it's even better than the clinique foundation i used before that. Wear it every day except sundays - when i go outside, basically. My skin's better than it used to be as well, and it covers everything pretty well Plus, as a bonus, it was only a pound or two on aliexpress, free delivery, and that's legit

    Every day, mostly because I'm just super conscious about my looks so I like to have something to cover with

    Thirded!

    Also, what shade do you all go for in it? Since I've never heard of it before and can't really go and test out colours, what would you recommend in terms of your own skin tone?

    (I'm very pale myself, but not sure how that would compare to the Korean market - my usual shade is Calico from No. 7)

    I go for #13 milky beige. Which is the lightest shade. Only bb cream/ foundation I have found not only light enough for me but the correct undertone. And I have literally tried every drug store foundation, all came up orange on me. Or too dark with pink undertones (I have a yellow undertone).

    Also signature real complete #13 is the lightest of all the missha range. There are other missha bb creams that are also called #13 milky beige but are darker.

    Also if you have trouble finding a foundation or bb cream light enough, possibly think about investing in a white foundation base which you can use to mix with ones that are slightly too dark. I personally (before I found missha perfect signature #13) used to use the keromask white foundation which is about £7 also think it's with free p and p on the website.

    Edi for reference this is what it looks like:

    You can also get it in a smaller tube, different shape packaging but same floral design.

    Thank you!

    I tend to find something of the opposite in that foundations tend to come up too yellowy on me. The No.7 one I use right now is the closest thing I've managed to find, and it's good when I'm trying to tone down my skin when it's having a very red day, but it's not perfect.

    I shall check out both of them

    Ahh I see, sounds like we're different undertones then.

    I ran out of mine so I havent worn it for a few days and my skin looks MUCH better...!

    I used a really expensive brand too, does it always make your skin worse?

    Girls how many days a week do you wear it?
    Never. I don't need it and I think it's gross

    Only when I'm going on a night out. I normally use BB cream instead which I wear most days.

    I never apply foundation heavily because I hate how heavy it feels. But when I'm wearing it, it's probably like every two weeks or when I feel like it, which isn't often.

    Which one do you use that feels heavy? I like the "heavy" feel
