A3F[on] BB Cream

I recently switched my BB Cream from Missha to A3F[on]. I was using Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 in No. 23 for about a year and a half and I started to hate it after a year but I wanted to finish the tube before I purchased another one. At first I thought it was great coverage and color until slowly I noticed that its a little thick, makes me look cakey and the color didn't match--still looked on the greyish side. I finished the tube about a month ago and went to the Korean market to purchase a new one. The lady who works there picked out couple samples according to my skin type and color and I tested them out on my hands comparing it to the Missha one I've been using. I finally picked out the A3F[on] Multi Effect BB Cream SPF 50! Yes, SPF 50. It also whitens and it's anti-wrinkle. It comes as a set with a Peeling Gel (I haven't had the chance to use this yet) and I think the price is almost close to Missha Perfect Cover.

So far I love this BB cream. It's creamy, light coverage so it feels real light on skin, color blends in with my skin tone and it has SPF 50. Since it isn't full coverage I still have to put on concealer and powder on top but I've been doing this step for years so I don't mind. I don't like anything heavy on my face so this is perfect on days I don't want to wear a lot of makeup--just some bb cream and walk out the house. I think there's only one color for this brand so if you're dark skin tone it probably won't match. 

Which BB cream do you use?
