The popular product - full name blemish balm cream - is common among Korean brands and claims to heal as it conceals. Lighter than foundation, it is great for summer.

Laneige BB Cream SPF41 PA++ (HK$260/50ml) 7/10

A reasonably priced product with fairly high UV protection, so it is suitable for daily use. It has a smooth texture, which means it sinks straight into the skin.

BRTC Gold Caviar BB Cream SPF50 PA+++ (HK$208/60ml) 7/10

This cream provides excellent coverage: lightweight, yet still managing to cover imperfections and uneven skin tone. One drawback is its consistency - it's very thick and hard to spread.

The colour is natural and leaves skin looking clear and bright. Hides enlarged pores and blemishes effectively.

Missha M Watery BB Cream (HK$180/50ml) 8/10

A fairly runny choice, but still fairly effective in concealing blemishes, spots and open pores. Not too thick, non-greasy and weightless once applied, it can be used alone or under makeup.
