I bought this just because i wanted to try a BB cream that was also pretty cheap. I don't remember exactly what I paid, but it was somewhere around ten dollars. I also bought this in light/medium because they didn't have any in the fair/light color.
The color turned out to be awful on me-I looked like a fake Snooki orange. This stuff is also pretty creamy; you really don't need a lot at all to get coverage. I really did like the creamy texture until I saw the effect it had on my face. It looked really sticky, like a donut glaze, and the small red spots on my face still showed through. But if you apply more it just looks worse.
The one thing that's good, I guess, if you do end up liking this is that you get a lot of product for your money. It's a 2.5 ounce bottle, and you really only need a small drop to cover your face. That being said, I hadn't worn this a lot because of the sticky orange-ness of it, but I wanted to get my money's worth. So I mixed it with my Mary Kay matte timewise liquid foundation that I already had in ivory 3, and now it's just great! I get the coverage i like, the texture I like, the matte properties I like, and a color that is the natural color of my skin.
Decent overall. Oh, and there is a scent that can be strongish. To me it smells fresh and citrusy, and I like it, but I know some people can't stand scented makeup.
I really like this stuff. It smells fantastic and blends very easily into my skin. I went out in the sun for a few hours one day and got burned all over my chest, but my face was completely protected everywhere that I was wearing this product. It doesn't clog my pores or make me break out, and it's sheer enough that I can just slather it on with my hands in the morning then immediately start layering bronzer, etc. over it. I like to blend it with an illuminator (I use Prescriptives Magic, which I think is discontinued now) to give my skin a glow. My only complaint is that you have to wash your hands before touching literally anything else after using it or it transfers.
there are a lot of bb creams in asia and i have tried more than ten and this is a very average bb cream but easily accessible in UK, there are many asian brands not accessible in uk or europe unless you buy it online and willing to pay for shipping fees
It has a natural look, I liked it. I only need a light coverage so it works out well for me. It was not greasy.
I actually thoroughly enjoy this BB cream. Although it's nothing like the amazing Asian ones, this one is pretty good for being western. It makes your skin dewey, and Light/Medium matches my NC20 - NC25 skin ton very well. It feels very light (I have combo skin). It is a little greasy(?) after a while, but if you set it with a good powder you'll be set for 6-7 hours. It is very creamy.
Overall, I really like this BB cream. It could be better, however, because it does tend to get oily after a while.
I like this product overall, coverage was good for my skin. I did find it a little sticky after apply so I did have to buy a finishing powder. Very moisturizing. I am not sure if I would repurchase though.
I wanted to try a tinted moisturizer and this was on sale. I'd heard that it did have some coverage and when I tested the light (as opposed to the light-medium) colour, it was a good match.
It does have a perfumed scent though I didn't notice the scent once it was on my face. Unfortunately, I have a feeling the scent ingredients were what caused my skin to react to the product.
My 52 year old face is covered in spots/pimples/rash...whatever term you want to use. The silly thing is, a few days before someone complimented my skin. If they saw me today, they'd ask for that compliment back!
I really wanted to like this product but unfortunately, it is a bit thumbs down for me...and yes, it did highlight my pores ...did it ever.
Oh my gosh I had to return this right after one use!!! The formula is just terrible and is so thick and oily. I have normal skin and made my skin all shiny and oily so I I know for a fact this isn't a product for people with oily skin! Another con is that smell it has. This scent is pretty much in every product garnier has and I just can't stand it. It is so strong you can smell it on your face. Ugh. The worst. I'm still on a mission to find a good bb cream and this is defenitely not a bb cream I reccomend but each to their own I guess.
I used this cream one time and I would never use it again. Right after I bought it I tried it on about thirty minutes later. I had no other products on. The smell was strong but it didn't stop me from putting it on. After I had it on for about fifteen minutes I started to get a headache. I don't get them that often, when I do it is due to allergies to a product I use. It was not that bad of a headache until about an hour and a half after I put the bb cream on. I got in the shower and washed my face really well to make sure I got it off. The headache got more intense anyway and I felt quite sick with nausea. In the morning I felt better. If you have allergies or can be sensitive to products stay away from this! I was able to get a refund.
Love this product so far! The first time I bought it in medium because light coloured foundations usually make me look like a vampire but with medium I looked like I had a horrible orange fake tan but I loved the feeling of the cream so I decided to try the light version and it was perfect! I suggest if you're medium usually then go for the light and same with the darker version :)
