Shills Natural Science BB Cream (Limited Edition)

Woot woot, Shills again =D Slowly finding my way through some of the things I got from them =D

I should have totally skipped this Natural Science BB Cream as I had allergic reactions to the other 2 versions I tried before but I was lured by that cute butterfly and flower design of the Limited Edition of this BB Cream (there is a regular more plain one available).

Even though Shills is a Taiwanese brand the box is printed in Korean. The box is definitely very pretty but the tube itself is more bland since it´s just made of aluminium with a paper sticker around it (which doesn´t stick too well on the tube!).
I got my Shills Natural Science BB Cream from Sasa for around 8 bucks which is a steal (this is a regular 50ml size, too!)

To my dismay I am allergic to this cream, too! Even though Shills stuff seems to be rather compatible with my skin the BB Cream doesn´t work at all.
At first my skin looked and felt great (as this is a rather lightweight BB Cream with sheer-medium coverage) but I noticed small itching patches appearing around my jaw-line and cheeks after about 30 minutes. I wore the cream for several days and it always started to itch shortly after application so I had to stop trying this out. My jaw still has parts that itch constantly after wearing this BB Cream yesterday =(

It´s really a pity as the Natural Science BB Cream is a great color match for me and gives a soft slightly glowy finish.
This has a soft fresh scent which doesn´t annoy me at all!

Overall nice stuff if you have fair skin and are not sensitive. Otherwise skip it!

I recently got a product by Helena RUbinstein called Color to Mix. It's a small tube of highly pigmented cream that you can add to any face cream product (foundation, moisturizer etc...) to darken it. It works great with BB creams too, and it is sold in light or dark. Maybe you should give that a try so you can use BB creams that you liked and that didn't have the right color for you?

Ih no, it looked so promising! I have sensitive skin too, and have been looking for BB creams which won't irritate my skin. The finish of the shills BB cream looked great though, and the box looks so pretty!

I bought both the LE and the normal version as I was lured by the pretty packaging too. As it has sheer coverage, I found it quite suitable to my olive-toned skin. One thing I dislike about this BB cream is its strong smell.

The packaging looks so pretty! Reminds me of L'occitane
