Skin79 has been one of my favourite BB cream brands and although I’ve always pondered at their skincare, I was hesitant to jump in because quite frankly there was so little information about them to begin with. When little incident with the Tony Moly moisturizing emulsion happened (mineral oil disaster) I ordered this one fill to fill in the missing gap in my routine.
Brand: Skin79 by WizCoz
Product: White Reviving Skin Radiance Cream
Complete Range: Emulsion, serum, eye treatment, cream, mask, sunblock
Price: $20-25CAD (via eBay)
Would I repurchase: Yes
I opened up the jar with absolutely no idea of what to expect at all. It claims to contain flower extracts to nourish the skin and provide a moisture barrier for hydration. I was surprised to find that the product was more of a lotion like consistency than a thick cream. (Update: It condenses a bit more in the winter into a light cream but still retains the easy to spread consistency of a lotion when on the skin.) It has a faint fragrance, reminiscent of something from Dove or Olay which provides an aromatic experience without numbing your nose. Although it did take a bit longer to absorb into my skin, it never left me feeling greasy or suffocated even during the warmer summer months.
Give this a go if you have normal to oily skin that is easily dehydrated and you want the moisture without the heavy feel of thicker creams. I think the light yet hydrating texture is something to be applauded for and puts this cream on par with something high end like Estee Lauder or Lancome. For dry skin types this may not be quite enough for you alone so try layering this over a heavier serum or essence. Personally I look forward to repurchasing this in the future along with more products from the range.
Have you tried anything from Skin79’s skincare range?

My skin type: Combination skin that is easily dehydrated, acne prone with large pores on my cheeks and with uneven skin tone (especially during the summer months). Horribly reactive to avobenzone and mineral oil.
