After a few month I finally ordered two (2) new BB Creams!! One is from [ETUDE HOUSE] and the other one is from a brand I recently got to know: it makes your skin sing or better known under the short form [i.myss]. I guess this brand is rather new?! 
Anyway, the korean boyband 2AM (투에이엠) is the new face for i.myss.
Btw, why are so many guys the face of a cosmetic brand (2AM, SHINee, JYJ, CNBLUE,...)???

So, when I saw this new brand I got very curious and wanted to try out one of their BB Creams. I got the A.CARE TROUBLE COVER BB CREAM for acne-prone/ troubled skin.

Description: A special trouble care line freshly repairing the stressed skin by madecassoside and easing the trouble by natural ingredient extracted from tangerine fruit.
The BB Cream is inside a white paper box which has on the front a member of 2AM (sorry, I don't know their names...). On the back is the description in korean and on the side in english.
The product itself comes in a flat, whitish tube with a twist-off lid. It contains 50ml!
The ingredient list is quite long: Water, Talc, Magnesium Sulfate, Orange Oil, Lemon Fruit Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Bergamot Fruit Oil, Citronella Oil, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Citrus Unshiu Fruit Oil, Tangerine Peel Oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil. Salicylic Acid, Iron Oxides and more.
The consistency is creamy, not too thick, though. It has a good coverage and mattyfies my skin for a few hours. Unfortunately, the A.CARE TROUBLE COVER BB CREAM is available in one shade only which I would describe as Natural Beige
For my white/ pale skin this shade is a bit too dark what makes me sad.
I can only apply a thin layer or need to mix it with a (lighter) BB Cream or a Primer. It might suit asians or ppl with darker skin, though!
The scent is slightly fruity, ethereally (from the oils).
I wished I could leave a more positive feedback but the shade is just not the right one for pale skin types. Hopefully they will offer more color options in the future.
But I like the coverage and the matte finish!
How to use: At the last step of foundation touch, take a proper amount to apply along with skin texture smoothly and tap softly to help absorbtion.

Price: around 11,50,- €/ US$12  
Bought at: eBay (    
What I love: 
The coverage is good and it leaves a matte finish. Nice scent as well!   

What I don’t like: 
Only one shade which is too dark for my pale skin. Oil control is ok but my skin still gets shiny after a few hours.
Will I buy this again? Nope, because of the color!! Would like to try out other ones from [i.myss], though.


  1. That must be really drying because of talk in the inci :0 well, ofc if it's for oily skin but still~

    1. Oh, what am I thinking? Meant talc not talk.. :D

    2. It's for oily skin, maybe the talc is what keeps the skin oil free for a longer time?!
      But yeah, if you have dry areas, too, you might see it under the BB Cream. My skin gets sometimes more flaky then... =.=

  2.'s too light for me..T^T

  3. Ah die BB Creme klingt gut, aber nur eine Farbe fuer alle Hauttypen? Ich find ja schon 2-4 immer viel zu wenig, eine find ich persoenlich unter aller sau. Vom Inhalt her klingts aber gut, besonders da meine Haut superviel Stress macht u_u" Denke mit mehr Farben wuerde es sich wahrscheinlich besser vermarkten lassen :/

    1. Mir reicht es meistens schon wenn zumindest noch ein Light Beige angeboten wird aber hier wurde nichtmal auf dem Produkt selbst beschrieben um was für ein Beigeton es sich handelt. =/

  4. I've been noticing a lot of boy groups on cosmetics now too...I think it's because they want to say if you wear our product, these hot guys will like you! LOL! XD
    I've never heard of this brand before! The swatch looks nice enough. :D How much wear time did you get out of it?

    1. I wish those hot guys would like me when I wear 'their' make-up. *lol*
      I wore it for around 8 hours and it was really greasy at the end. After 3 hours it started to look oily on my skin but yeah, that's because my skin is quite oily and when I apply too many other products under the BB Cream (like face creams, primers, etc.) it makes it more worst. ><

  5. i love BB cream.. thats great! let's follow each other..
