Pic below is the full version, but I don't buy it, I only try the sample sachet. I took this pic from skinfood web.

This is the front view of the sample, I took this pic randomly from web.
Note : my skin is oily-combination, acne prone, sensitive, medium-tan tone (not sure), blemished

I'm sorry for the poor snap snap from my web cam^^'

Few days ago, I bought Etude Bright Fit bb cream and Tony Moly Pore Tightening Pack from Riebutik Multiply which I’ll review soon. I got sample sachet of Skinfood Aloe BB Cream and Etude Dress Room Body Wash. Now I’m gonna review the Skinfood Aloe BB Cream. I got number 1 shade Radiant Skin (Light Beige). 1 sachet can be used for twice applications.
            The shade no.1 is absolutely way too light for me, my skin is not that fair. But surprisingly can blend well since the bb shade adjust to my skin tone. It has sheer – medium coverage depends on how u apply it. The coverage is buildable, u can add more after first application until u get coverage like u want, I myself apply more on blemished area of my face. But be careful coz applying it too much will be chalky. A little amount (about pea size) enough for entire face. It gives semi matte smooth finish not powdery. It is medium fragranced, I guess but I’m not bothered by it. The texture of the cream quite easy to blend and dried quickly too. I applied it using my fingertips since I was too lazy to use brush, gotta spread it quickly before it dried.
It’s cakey when my face getting oily and the coverage is melted when I sweat. It transferred to my clothes and my cell phone (when I was using it), this is not sweat proof. I have to blot after 2 hours after using it and touch up in the lunch time. The staying power is not good, it oxidized on my face. At 4.00 pm I saw the complexion on my face darkened. It also clogged my pores from the first time I used it, in the end of the day, I got 3 little zits on my cheek. And on the second day, I got 3 little pimples on my jaw. The other bad things is I got bit redness on my face in the end of the day after using it. It is enough to proof that this bb cream is not for me. Too bad coz it’s affordable to buy the full size. Sorry, I'm a bit rude here but this is the fact in me.

Texture : cream, medium consistency, some people may found it's texture bit heavy.
This list I took from :
Ingredients :
Water, Cyclomethicone
Stearic Acid
Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate
Polymethyl Methacrylate
Boron nitride
Sodium chloride
Phenyl Trimethicone
Ferric Oxide
Fragrance   Ultramarine
Ferric Oxide
Cetyl Peg
Micro Particle Titanium Oxide
Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer
Ferrous Ferric Oxide

Pros :
- can adjust to my skin tone
- easy to blend and the coverage is buildable
- affordable price (if I buy the full size version via online)
- has spf in it
- After application, It helped me to freshen up my complexion
- A little size enough for entire face (bout pea size)

Cons :
- Oxidize on my skin
- Fragranced
- The cream color transfered to my clothes and cell phone
- Oil control is so so
- Clogged my pores
- Sensitizer for my sensitive skin

Who may like it :
- Fair to medium skin tone
- Dry to normal skin, not a sensitive skin
- Looking for bb cream with affordable price
- don’t expect good oil control
- want a medium coverage
- want a semi matte finish

Who may not like it :
- Oily, acne prone, sensitive skin
- hate fragranced skin care
- want a product with good oil control
- want a natural dewy finish

Will I repurchase? Too bad but it’s a No. Too bad on Skinfood since I like their other skincare products.

This is my experience, what yours? Have u ever tried this before?
