BB Cream Week: Hanskin's Super Magic BB Cream

Our third featured BB cream is a sample of Hanskin's Super Magic BB Cream. Cyndi vaguely recalls reading somewhere that Hanskin was one of the first cosmetic shops to get into the BB Cream game. I'm not sure how long Hanskin has been producing BB creams, but they certainly have a daunting array of BB creams to choose from. Fortunately, Hanskin is very generous with their samples (just be sure to request lots of samples), so it's easy to try out their creams without committing to a whole tube. Hanskin's products are higher priced than that of FaceShop or Missha, so we had high expectations for the Hanskin BB creams.

Hanskin has a couple of "Magic BB Creams," but Cyndi tried the one in the black tube.

I've decided that unflattering before and after photos are not necessary, so I hope that this video demonstration will suffice for all you people who prefer visuals over my lengthy rambling.

OUR THOUGHTS:
I have to admit that Super Magic was a bit of a disappointment. It's a lot more wet than the other BB Creams that we've tried. Cyndi thinks the soppy texture is due to its moisturizing factor. The cream made Cyndi take on a noticeably grayish hue that did not really compliment her skin tone. The cream does create a dewy look, but it does not last very long. Cyndi also noted that the cream made her break out a little, so I don't think she'll be using Super Magic in the future. The cream was not awful, but we recommend trying a sample before purchasing the cream. The Hanskin creams generally start at around 20,000 won, so it's best to try them out before purchasing. I regret buying my sister a tube simply based on the saleswoman's recommendation. I hope that my sister has more magical results with Super Magic Cream...
