To be honest, the reviews here have surprised me. I am very happy with this product. I don't like to plaster too much make-up on my face, just a bit of coverage and some mascara & eye-liner, so maybe this is why I enjoy this product a little more than other people. I don't smell any scent that would turn me off of this product as much as has been suggested. I found the cream to have great coverage and hasn't made my skin oily. Budget friendly, great product. I would recommend!
So I bought this BB Cream a few years ago. I bought it when it was the only BB Cream at the drugstore. Anyways, I never got around to doing a review on it.. so here it goes! It only comes in 3 shades. I am an NW20 at MAC, and the lightest shade was a little too dark. It never fully set on my face, so it would be kind of slick on the skin. The coverage was okay. It was a little more than a tinted moisturizer, but less than a foundation. However, I knew the coverage was like that when I bought it. Anyways, I have combination skin, and so the parts that get oily, like my chin, got oily super quick. It didn't stay on well either. I wouldn't recommend this.
I did not enjoy this BB cream one bit. There is barely any coverage and it oxidizes on the skin. It was also super greasy and no amount of powder over top would cover the shine. I haven't even gotten to the worst part yet - the smell! Oh that smell! It is so over powering and lingers on your face. After wearing this cream throughout the day, I noticed that my eyes were so irritated due to the strong smell. Big thumbs down - there are so many better BB creams out there, I would never repurchase this one.
Made my face so oily! I have to top it off with translucent powder to keep it looking matte. Okay product, too pricy for doing so little.
I don't really have anything good to say about this product. It didn't provide any coverage at all--I didn't expect coverage for acne or dark spots, but I do expect a BB cream to even out my skin tone at least a little bit. This didn't do that. Even worse, it was greasy and made my skin feel like an oil slick. But the biggest turnoff for me was the smell. I've never encountered a product that had such a strong, nasty smell. There are far better BB creams out there for less than this one costs.
Not a fan. Even the lightest shade turned me orange. Also made me very oily.
I had been wanting to try out this product for a very long time but i never actually bought until a few weeks ago . i was a bit nervous because i had never used a bb cream . packaging was great tells you what it's supposed to do , shade , skin type etc. the smell not so bad but it does have a little smell of alcohol but it soon goes away . it glides on my skin soo nice . it has great coverage , and you also build coverage but only downfall as soon as it sets on your skin it looks powdery and after a while it does get oily . i have both dry and oily skin and it makes my face oily but it doesn't appear oily which is a plus. even though i use a setting powder it still manage to get oily .
overall : it has good coverage , average price , glides on skin perfect , not drying (dewy finish) ,at the end of the day it does tend to wear off (not a problem b/c i can just add more without looking cake-y) i would repurchase
I had seen a lot of reviews for this. Both good and bad. I decided to give it a try because they had it on sale where I work. I picked it up in fair/light even tone. I was really surprised by this. For something that is not a foundation it covered better than than my medicated Almay foundation. I even used less of this to cover my blemishes than I have to with foundation. The price for this is amazing compaired with other department store brands. Even better than most foundation prices. I got the only bottle of fair/light my place of work had. I hope we get more, or I can find it somewhere else, because I am going to repurchase. This B.B. cream worked great for me.
my sister bought this product when it first came out in around 2012. it was too dark for her (the light/medium shade) so she gave it to me and i love it!!! mostly wear this in summer (it is a little dark for my winter skin, but fits perfect when tan) for just a light product on my skin. gives a nice dewy finish and has that great apple smell. not very much coverage but that's not a big problem for me. looking to repurchase one soon because i am still using the one fro 2012!
A friend of mine came in wearing this BB cream for oily skin and her skin looked flawless so I decided to get myself some, but having dry skin I went for the 'normal skin' version. The product is essentially a moisturizer, it gives me dewy (or even somewhat greasy) skin but offers practically no coverage. My skin's pretty clear, no scars/spots etc, so I was just hoping it would even out my skin tone but it did absolutely nothing for me. Also, it made me look orange, the fact it covered nothing yet gave me an umpa lumpa glow is baffling. The good thing about this product is it didn't accentuate my dry patches which foundation always does- but then again a moisturizer serves the same purpose. Can't see myself re-purchasing this, may try the one for oily skin as it seems to fare a lot better.
