Skin 79 - REAL vs. FAKE BB Cream

{ Thursday, May 13, 2010 }


There are fake Skin79 bb cream that is being distributed now in Taiwan at a very very low price. It is being manufactured in China.

If we purchase a fake BB cream, how sure are we that it has the same quality similar to the genuine ones??? Are you willing to put your SKIN at risk for the small difference in price????

We would like to advise our customers not to be tricked by fake products in the market. Our products are genuine and it only cost abit more. So why take the risk? Support and insist only on authentic bb creams from Korea!

Hi I have recently bought Skin 79 BB cream from Hong Kong. I have checked the one which I bought and compared it against ur post on 'real vs fake'. If the expiry date and the various tell-tale signs that it is a real product but there is a sticker in chinese, does it mean that it is most probably a fake after all?

Can you do a comparison for the Diamond II series?

Is there a difference in what the cream can do? I just realized I accidently purchased the fake one and it's still doing wonders to my skin :s I'm a bit confused.

dear all,
there are a lot of fake bb cream in the market currently. Most of them are imported from China, taiwan or Hong Kong.
1. If the BB cream that u purchased have Chinese word, then is fake BB.
2. I will try to post more real and fake BB cream comparison once i have time. :)
3. If you accidentally brought a fake bb, hmmm... i also what can do... u cant ask the seller to refund right? ^^ so must beware~~

Hi, Is this BB Cream FDA Approved?

Cindy said...

Skin79 is not FDA approved in the USA yet. It's only KFDA (korea).

Be on the watch out for the new Triple Function BB Cream though (Hot Pink). it will be even shorter then the current version.

hi, thanks a lot for the BB cream comparison. I recently bought the super plus Gold bb cream. I think that it's fake. But, not sure if it really is. Did the fake packaging improve? the bb cream comes out as a very nice consistency. But the flap inside the box got SKIN79.com on it. Is the letters suppose to be easily scratched off in the real one? the one i have is very easy to ruboff, when i scratch it with my fingernails.. Thanks . I asked a lot but just wanna be SURE^^

Anonymous said...

can you describe how the gold label one smells like too?! the one i got smell pretty decent. but i think it's fake tho. what does the real one smells like.

THANKSSS SOOO SOO MUCH.:)

i just got my super plus gold bb cream and mine also has the website on the flap and the back of the cream but everything else matches

Little Makeup Box said...

dear all,
- their is not website printed on the box for mid of 2009 - 2010 production. However, this is only applicable for hotpink, gold label and diamond prestige.
- skin79 korea is changing to new packaging for hotpink and gold label now to solve fake bb problems.
- i will upload the new packaging details soon!!!
- thanks for supporting!!! ^^

Jane said...

does a genuine skin79 bbcream seller has the licence to sell their products?

because I intend to purchase bb cream from a supplier but not sure whether their bbcream are genuine, I thought of asking them to show me their licence issued by skin79, is that possible?

Little Makeup Box said...

OMG. There's so many wholesaler that are selling thru the web from China.
Is it fake? Or they just sell wholesale?
Most of the products they sell are Skin79 and Missha. I don't know if they sell Skinfood make up also. I saw that they sell Skinfood scrubs only. @_@

Livalicious said...

i love your comparison! im glad to know that mines a real one T^T~ *phew*

Dear blogger,

I came across your blog while searching online for some information regarding fake/real for SKIN79 Pink BB cream.
Your blog has been very helpful!
It's just that...can you help me with a little more insight...? Please?
The cream that bought was on ebay HongKong. Here is the link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110565436035&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

It cost me USD $ 6.68 only with free shipping! I am not sure anymore about it's genuineness. I contacted the seller and the seller vouched that it is indeed genuine BB cream!

Well, the problem is in order (according to your explanations):
1. It has the shining effect "B.B" and "Skin79" printed on it and I can feel it if I run my fingers on it.
2. IT has the genuine looking security label on the top press of the bottle.
3. The product + manufacturing label is not below "ISO 9001...." but on the bottom of the cream
4. It has the website stated on the crimp of the BB cream but not on the actual BB cream bottle.
5. It has website on the opening cover of the crimp!!!
6. It is the original 8.6CM/ 86mm from bottom to the squeeze hole.
7. The Skin79 label on the bottle doesn't fade easily
8. The size of the BB cream looks OK but as I have just one and only BB cream I cannot compare the colour of the BB cream.
9. It has the original 5mm diameter.
10. It doesn't have any Chinese instruction but in English.
11. It has no expiration date below the crimp/ cover of the BB cream!!!
12. I can't tell the colour of the cream because again I don't have another of the same to compare the colour and texture of the cream (I haven't used/ opened it yet).
13. It has 3 dotted holes below the cream...
14. It has clear printings on the crimp and the bottle of the BB cream.
15. It has a cover like the fake ones on the squeeze hole of the cream!!!!
16. The bar code looks fine to me...

Dear blogger,

The Skin79 cream that I have has both the original and fake qualities so kindly do let me know if it is real or fake.
Thank you so much!!!

ARE all the cheaper ones fake? I'm confused by some sites since they have comparison of prices, such as the original and their price. But i was reluctant to purchase it, since i went on the official site and saw that the prestige bb cream is $40 >.< so i'm not sure anymore

Grace said...

Hi Blogger,

I purchased the authentic skin 79 BB cream from the official website while I was in korea for a year from the summer of '08 - summer of '09. I actually bought a whole bunch of their products including the oriental, diamond, some sunblocks, etc. (which were NOT cheap) but these all have the skin79 website printed next to the "made in Korea" sign. Also, for the BB Diamond (last BB cream on your post), I have the exact same one and the inside of the pump hole is not black/brown but silver. Just thought it was a little weird because I purchased mine from the official website (since everything in korea has the possibility of being fake if it isn't purchased from the actual brand store/website) and i doubt they would sell fake ones on their website.. :T

But it has been a while so they might've changed the labeling? + all of my packagings have the "made in korea" on the flap of the box so they might've gotten rid of it? Not sure...

Just thought it was a little weird how the real one had the attributes of the fake ones posted here

Anyways~ I just wanted to throw this out to anybody who purchased one a while back ago. Might be real or fake (depending on where you purchased) since the older products seems to have similar labeling as the fake ones coming out these days...

I made a post on fake bb creams too and borrowed your photos and linked to your site. I hope it's okay with you. Here it is:

Thank you so much for this post. Looks like I have a real one. I bought it off ebay too, from a Korean topseller.

Ashley said...

@Troya

Emily said...

HELP! If anyone knows how to treat the allergic reaction caused by the fake (Skin79 Dream Girl BB cream), please contact me. I accidentally bought the fake bb cream (the unfortunate side is I paid the same price as the original for it)...At first I looked at the package and found that all the words on the description seemed to match perfectly ( I didn't even notice the website wasn't there ..sigh) I noticed the package wasn't shimmery, but I thought "oh they must have had to cut back on fancy packaging"....when I opened it..it was runnier than I remember, and I think it smelled fragrant..I don't remember my bb cream being fragrant....however....I thought it was "soupy/greasy" because my mom didn't check the mail for a day and a half! so I thought it got heated up ;___;....but...that wasn't it and after wearing it to a job interview and washing it off last night the damage is done..there are tiny bumps in (id' say) just about ever pore/area of my skin!! I'm freaking out...and here's the scary part...my eyelids are swollen (not from crying, i didn't cry..though trust me I want to)..but my eyelids are already swollen grossely!! huge..red..itchy and sore....also when I touch the eyelid skin I feel these teenttiny red bumps........like sandpaper... TT___TT If anyone has had this problem and knows the remedy I would appreciate it... I really hope my skin won't be like this from now on (and it wasn't even that good before! huhhh) .... my email is { orchidbear@hotmail.com } thank you..

Hi how can you tell if the SKIN79 Advanced Triple Functions Beblesh Balm i bought from http://www.buybbcream.com/products/SKIN79-Advanced-Triple-Functions-Beblesh-Balm.html
is fake or real?

Agnes said...

I bought online a BB cream triple fuction Gold few days ago, and now that I found out it could be fake, I'm really afraid. I'd hate the idea I've wasted my money. Saw the product tracking and it's been imported from Hong Kong. I live in Brazil.
The image is http://tinyurl.com/apo8xjn
I'm waiting it to be placed yet. Could you please analyze the image?

Hi ! Please do you know where I can be sure to buy a real BBcream ??? Prettyandcute sales real BBcream hot pink or not ??

I bought a bb cream from china but it doesn't have website on it or Chinese instruction. I did compare it to the original one but there one thing that is different. On the box had a sticker on it and it says made from china but the box instructions are all in Korean. The inside box had instructions in English, japanese and Chinese. The height is the same too. So does that means its real?

Hi all,

Finally, my Skin79 Orange BB 3x functions SPF 50 arrived 11/05/2013 both it on amazon from Honest Skin through Amazon seller is in Korea. My first time ordering BB and do concern about the fake BB. So, I immediately open the box and inspect the bottle, everything looks good except No Silver Sticker on the back my bottle. I, then contacted honest skin regarding the No Silver Sticker on the bottle. I got a replied next day, they told me the packaging has been change and here is the website they sent me.
http://www.skin79.com/eng/Product_Notice

My new packaging....
outside of BB box, "Wrinkle improvement" no Chinese and website indication any where on the outside of the box. Inside of the box on all 4 sides of the box has Chinese, Japanese, English, and Korean information and on the bottle inside of the box printed Skin79 all over.

My BB bottle.....
the bottle reflecting to the lighting, the white printing words are thick you can feel it but the word BB is flat. On the back of the bottle all the white printing are also thick and no website and Chinese printing. But on the bottle does not have "Silver Sticker" on it but on the upper right corner does have a square 1"x1" and word Skin79 in the middle. I believe these are the new 2013 packaging. I hope, I have covered it all and it helps.

Hello, i'm about to buy the skin79 hot pink from ebay. It says 'wrinkle free' not 'wrinkle improvement' which i heard means it's real. It's also shipping from hong kong and the seller has 99.8% positive feedback, do you think its real? Or stands a chance of being real? Also is there any amazon sellers that sell them 100% authentic? I live in the uk and i can't find anywhere that sells the bb creams! I'm also after the orange one too, thank you!x
