Tonal creams are not for me. I only use them when going out and consider them to be heavy on skin. For daily use I like thinner toning textures, preferably containing treating properties. Asians are versed in skin beauty health like no other. I mostly trust korean BB creams, so, when Manyo Factory offered me this cream for testing, I agreed with pleasure and started to dig in. I'll note that I have combination skin, prone to dryness in winter. My cheeks do feel like in the Kalahari desert, no matter how well I moisturize them.
Hugest advantages for me were: natural ingredients promising to moisturize my skin with organic complex of herbal oils and extracts, and SPF 29+ sunscreen.

Herbal Fresh Moist BB Cream has a single, fairly light, neutral shade. This is exactly what central European girls want for winter. In summer, if you prefer to have sun tan, you need to switch to a different product. Of course, it adapts to natural skin tone, but to a reasonable level.
Immediately after application it is spread slightly non-uniform, you must use your fingers or a sponge to evenly spread it on face. But just in a couple of minutes it completely merges with skin and gives a very noble well-groomed appearance.
Moisturizing, rich texture may not be suitable for oily skin. But this BB cream perfectly nourishes dry skin covering it with a velvety layer.
If you compare it with the By Terry CC-cream, Manyo Factory Herbal Fresh Moist BB Cream has a tighter texture.
Below is a test photo I made: without makeup on the left and with the BB cream on the face on the right. You can see that the cream successfully fixed small blemishes, evened skin tone, smoothed out pores. It definitely fails to improve noticeable redness and pimples, of course. Usually I'd top it with transparent loose powder to fix the makeup. The result looks very natural, as if there was no tricks ;) That is the effect I like and value most in tonal treatments! It does not smell at all. At least there are definitely no obvious perfume fragrances present.
Herbal Fresh Moist BB cream stays tight on forehead and cheeks, but it may wear out on the nose by the end of day. Keep it in mind and don't forget to have powder on you. Although if you have completely dry skin, this problem may never occur.
Overall, I am satisfied with the product - I feel hydration and comfort, I have more protection against aggressive environmental factors. My skin looks noble and glowing. And knowing the amount of beneficial ingredients in the cream sets the mood for beauty and health!
