Review: Skin79 Hot Pink Super BB Cream

Product Features:
Has Adenosine and Arbutin for Whitening
UV Protection (Has SPF25, PA++)
Wrinkle Solution
Phyto Complex Ingredient
Uses various ingredients to moisturize and revitalize the skin like Tangerine Oil, Ceraminde 3 and Osmopur

Reasons for Buying:
Extremely popular! This is probably one if not the most popular Korean BB cream out in the market. I've read nothing but great reviews about this product. Plus, it is Hot Pink. I just cannot resist pink. Haha.

Type: Combination to Oily
Foundation Shade: MAC NC15-20

Great packaging. It comes in a really adorable pink container with a pump to avoid spillage.
Gives light coverage. This BB cream is for girls who shy away from wearing too thick a face product and just prefer wearing a thin layer on their faces. It does not do much in covering scars and blemishes even after layering. It can give up to medium coverage but nothing more than that.
Does not dry to a matte finish. It gives a sheer, luminous finish when used alone. But when topped with a setting powder, it mattifies a bit. However, after a few hours, it gives a dewy look.
Easy to apply. The consistency is really light, thin, and easy to blend. This BB cream is perfect for those who prefer to use their fingers instead of a brush when applying face products as the risk of tugging the skin lessens.
Has Only One Available Shade. My biggest issue about this BB cream is the gray cast it gives the face. Hints of gray or pink are common in BB creams, but with proper blending, it usually wears off and matches  the natural skintone closely. However, this one doesn't. It left my face looking dead and zombie-ish after a few hours. But because I did not want to waste it, I tried mixing it with a lighter shade of foundation. Somehow, it was manageable.
L: Product when dispensed from the container
R: Product slightly blended on the skin 
I'd love to love this product, but for me, it just did not deliver the goods I was expecting. It just failed to cater to the needs of my skin.
