Elisha Coy Always Nuddy BB 24 Blemish Balm Review & Swatches

May 14, 2009
Elisha Coy Always Nuddy BB 24 Soothing & Moisturizing Anti-Irritant Blemish Balm ($10.20 for the mini 15 ml size)

Elishacoy’s BB cream (Blemish Balm) is meant for sensitive skin as it contains (purportedly) non-irritating fine particle ingredients including sanghwang mushroom extracts, chamomile, portulas oleracea extracts, sodium hyaluronic acid, and peach extracts.

I know I promised to review this months but I actually forgot all about it for several reasons, the larges one being that I plain disliked it. I have this bad habit of shoving products I dislike to one side and forgetting to review them for you all. I promise to be better about that!

Well I guess first I should discuss what’s right with this BB cream so as not to sound too negative! It’s got better coverage than most BB creams which is a huge plus, it’s a nice non-super-beige or yellowy shade, and it mattifies the complexion quite well.

Now what’s not so right: well my biggest issue with this BB cream is that every time I wear it, I find these big, painful cystic breakouts forming all over my face. Definitely not pretty! Since that totally defeats the purpose of using a BB cream, of course this is a no-go for me. The Elisha Coy BB Cream also makes me skin feel slightly tight and itchy throughout the day, and all in all it just doesn’t work for me.

I’m glad I decided to try the mini version of this before going for the full-sized as it obviously didn’t work for me. I ordered this at the time time that I ordered my Innisfree BB Mousse, and that one’s been working wonderfully well for me–I love it! If you’re looking for a nice, super-light BB cream with great SPF protection, check that one out, I’ve got a review of it lying around somehwere.
