Having tried all sorts of BB creams this one definitely comes out on top! Perfect at keeping oil down-if you get a greasy T-Zone! Plus the price is fantastic(around £10 ish). There's no overpowering smell with this cream either. As I'm a new mum I find it quick to apply as no need for moisturiser. I would apply a powder to combat the slightly glossy look if required. The colour is nice and natural, coverage wise if your skin is pretty good this is a nice finisher, if you have bad skin it's not going to fully cover up spots ..you'll need a concealer on top
I only wish the SPF was higher than 15, have to wear my Estee Lauder BB cream on sunnier days, however it's nowhere near as good, heavily perfumed and three times the price...only upside is that it does have SPF 35! NO.7 at boots are getting a lot of stuff right. I'm impressed. However to guard against ageing sun effects, a higher SPF is needed- using in the UK shouldn't be a problem ..9 times out of ten it's not sunny!
Before I review I want to remind you that this isn't a foundation so don't expect much coverage, BB creams are designed to give you a no makeup/natural look, so if you want coverage go for a foundation instead or use a concealer as well.
I bought this after my holiday, I have a oily t-zone and found that this product was oil free, having said this it doesn't control the oil and you will need to reapply powder throughout the day to keep that matte look otherwise it can be quite oily looking. However as a BB cream it is good, gives you a primer/moisturiser/tint for a no makeup dewy look. Nice with powder and bronzer on top. Doesn't give any coverage.
I purchased this Beautiful Skin BB Cream in normal /dry medium.
I love it, was very surprised with the coverage, great skin match for me, good texture and lasts all day. Good price too as my previous tinted moisturiser was Bobby Brown at double the price. I thought I'd do a trial of this one to see how it went, so now I'm a convert.Very happy.
I have never tried a BB cream as good as this one. I love the formula and it has no sent at all, witch is always a plus. It has less coverage than a foundation but more coverage than a tinted moisturizer. I works fantastic for layering, but don't expect it to cover acne 100%. You need a concealer with this.
I bought the one for normal/oily skin, witch is a true state. It is not perfect if you have super oily skin, because BB creams are supposed to be quite hydrating anyway.
The color has a bit of a grey tone before applied, but it blends beautifully into the skin, and I am very very fair. (NC15 in mac coloring).
My skin is quite sensitive to new products, but this has not broken me out, witch is amazing!
I bought this for normal/oily skin and first thought it was OK. My skin is quite oily and acne prone and I've struggled to find products that work for my skin.
When I started using this it seemed to be OK - the only thing I didn't like was that it left my skin oily from the beginning and wasn't matte at all! I kept using it as it was so easy to put on before the gym, going to the shops etc. After about 4 weeks use (used this about twice a week) I started getting spots and my skin started to get worse and worse. I felt like it was not breathing. So even using this twice a week gave me bad skin! Won't recommend this and definitely won't be buying again!
I bought both Normal/Dry and normal/oily.
I bought fair which was a little too dark for my NC15/NW15 neutral skin tone, however it badly oxidised making it far too dark.
-Badly oxidised, I looked like I'd been tangoed within an hour, I looked awful, bad colour, bad effect on my skin.
-Aged me - hard to describe (tried to in my other other review for the dry version) but it made me look about 5 years older.
-Coverage is light, not brightening or dewy as I expect from a BB.
-However it did offer some oil control.
-Neither one gave me spots of appeared to block pores (I tried each twice).
As per my other review if you're pale like me or want to try a BB then I recommend the Boots 17 version. Pale enough and more like what you'd expect from a BB cream.
