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!
