I have used many BB creams available in India, but sadly none of them have lived up to the hype created by Korean BB Creams. When BB creams became all the rage a few years ago, the expectation was that they offer skincare benefits along with good coverage on the skin. Somehow, none of the BB creams I have tried so far ticked all the boxes for me, until I found out that we can now get the Missha BB Cream in India!
Missha is a Korean skincare brand and the Missha M Perfect BB Cream has rave reviews online. So, I was excited to try this product, and am happy to report that this one satisfies all my criteria. So, here is everything you need to know about Missha BB Cream!
What Does The Missha BB Cream Offer?
The Missha M Perfect BB Cream offers high coverage to conceal dark circles and blemishes. It also contains various skin-nourishing ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide 3, Rosemary Extracts, Chamomile, and botanical emollients. Plus, a great thing about Missha BB Cream is that it also contains SPF 42 and PA+++, with hybrid filters like Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide.
Hence, it offers nourishment, coverage, and an added layer of sun protection on top of your sunscreen.

Is Missha BB Cream Suitable For Indian Skin Tones?
Currently, 5 shades of the Missha BB Cream are available on Nykaa. For my medium NC35 skin tone, the shade 27 – Honey Beige is an almost perfect match with yellow undertones. Nykaa also has two lighter shades (23 and 25) and two darker shades (29 and 31). So I would assume that these shades should suit NC25 to NC45 skin tones. Hence, the variants of the Missha BB Cream in India currently match slightly fair to slightly deep skin tones.
How Is The Finish And Coverage Of Missha BB Cream?
The Missha M Perfect BB Cream offers medium to almost full coverage in 1-2 layers. A little goes a long way with this BB Cream and I only need one small pump for my face and neck (Check the video below for a demo). It feels hydrating on the skin and offers a dewy finish without being greasy. For my oily skin, I find the finish a tad bit too dewy, so I like to apply a little bit of powder on top.

Is Missha BB Cream Suitable For Oily Skin
I find the Missha BB Cream suitable for my oily and acne prone skin except for the small issue that it settles a bit around my acne. To prevent this I use a powder or setting spray on top. The cream is hydrating yet light weight and should suit all skin types from dry to oily. Those with dry skin will probably love the dewy finish while those with oily skin may want to mattify it a bit with powder.
Is Missha BB Cream In India Worth The Price?
Missha M Perfect BB Cream is priced at around INR 1500 for a 50ml tube in India. This is equivalent to the price of a mid-range foundation and most Indian BB creams are much cheaper in cost. However, given the high coverage, you only need very little product per use, which justifies the cost of the cream. Additionally, it has various skin-loving ingredients and sunscreen filters too. So, in my opinion, the Missha M Perfect BB Cream is worth the price.
Where To Buy Missha BB Cream In India?
Missha M Perfect BB Cream is available on all leading online beauty stores like Nykaa, Tata Cliq, and Myntra. It is also available on Korean beauty websites like BeautyBarn and Cossouq.
Is Missha BB Cream Long-Lasting And Transferproof?
The Missha BB Cream lasts all day long on my face. It does not transfer easily and tranfers a tiny bit to my mask when I sweat outdoors.
Does Missha BB Cream Improve The Skin?
The Missha BB Cream hydrates the skin and offers sun protection. I also feel that my skin looks quite bright after I remove my makeup at night so that is an added bonus.
Do I Need To Wear A Sunscreen Under Missha BB Cream?
Yes, you must wear a sunscreen under the Missha BB Cream even though it has SPF 42. This is because you may not be using enough BB cream to offer even and ample sun protection to your face. So, first apply your regular sunscreen and wait for a few minutes. Once the sunscreen sets on your face, apply the Missha BB Cream on top. Some people also recommend using a sunscreen with similar filters as the BB cream to make sure that the filters do not react with each other and reduce the sun protection.
