Review: Hanskin Silky Treatment BB Cream

Hello Princesses!
Today I'm going to be talking about Hanskin's Silky Treatment BB Cream! I bought this BB Cream while on Holiday in Taipei in 2012, and out of the (literally) hundreds that I swatched, this was one of the only BB Cream's that was pale enough for me! Luckily for me, it was also one of the more affordable BB Creams, and was only $20(NZD) for two bottles! ^^ 
"An essence-type BB cream drenches skin with generous moisture to soften skin and leave it wonderfully smooth and supple, with a noticeable radiant glow. Easy to spread essence formula delivers rich moisturizers to nourish and hydrate skin. Use as the last step of your skin care routine. Apply powder or foundation to reinforce your beautifully fair and flawless look."

This BB Cream has very high protection at SF 50, although there are arguments that products with SPF higher than 30-40 are pointless. The Silky Treatment BB Cream focuses on adding moisture to the skin, making it a great choice for those with particularly dry skin. Since I have combination skin with an oily T-zone but dry cheeks, this BB cream is somewhat of a risk for me!
The colour looks drastically different compared to my face colour, but it's very similar to my my neck and body colour.

This BB Crean has fantastic full coverage, it covers my pores and the majority of my acne scars! I like to mix this BB Cream with a moisturizer for lighter coverage during the days where I want a more natural look.

This BB Cream is a lovely pale warm (yellow) toned BB Cream. It appears slightly greyish at first (usual with Asian BB Creams) but soon warms up to my skintone. It's slightly darker than the Missha BB Creams, (Signature Complete and Perfect Cover) but more warm toned in comparison, so it suits my skintone better!

Very thick! But still very nice and easy to work with! ^^

Oil Control
This BB Cream tends to get a little oily after the 6 hour mark around my T-Zone just like most BB Creams and Foundations for me. It's definitely manageable with the use of blotting paper and a setting powder so for me, not a problem at all.

It has a very medical/chemical scent, which is not entirely unpleasant and fades within a minute!

Lasting Power
This BB Cream has great lasting power! It does get oily in my T-Zone, but it doesn't slip off my face in the heat or deteriorate after time, and is easily fixed by blotting paper and setting powder.

Things I love
- Pale yellow colour
- Full coverage
- Doesn't break me out
- Lasts well
- Leaves my skin feeling nice after removal

Things I don't love
- Not readily available in NZ (although it's unlikely I'll run out!)
- Not made for oil control

Final Thoughts
I actually really love this BB Cream and I'm glad that I bought two! It's one of my go to BB Creams when I want comfortable full coverage without feeling like I have heavy make up on. If you can find it, I would totally recommend giving it a try! ^^


  1. It looks very good! Though I am not sure if the yellow undertone will look good me.

  2. This looks really amazing! I kinda like how simple the bottle is :)
    I also like that it's SPF50, the one I'm using right now is SPF35 and I wish it was higher.

    Lipstick and Mocha

  3. Aw, The cover is so amazing. I just wonder how can I get this BB Cream :(

  4. I can't find this bb anywhere :( They don't have it even on Hanskin page :(
