Ok, so no, this is not your typical BB cream, acting more like a tinted moisturizer instead...
But, within the tinted moisturizer kind of context, it is absolutely AWESOME.
I use this on a daily basis when I'm not really in the mood for makeup but still need a moisturizer/sunscreen and still want to look good but in a more subtle kind of way that fools people in to thinking I'm not wearing any makeup at all. The moisturizer properties are fantastic and it really has improved the health and overall appearance of my skin over time. The tint isn't the best, but the finish is very nice and "fresh faced" without being too dewey/shiny. It's melted away most of my "worry line" between my brows, smoothed my skin, and minimized my pores. It feels more like a water based gel than a moisturizer going on, very lightweight, smooth, kind of cool, quenching with no greasiness, and it soaks right in to my skin and STAYS there. I can sweat my butt off all day and it will not smear nor will I feel it oozing out of my pores... it's like it just becomes one with my skin and that's that... I never notice it's on at all. It has not caused even ONE pimple the entire time I've used it (about 4 months of almost completely daily use). I've honestly never came across any moisturizer or bb cream period that makes my skin as happy as this "bb cream" does. I love the way it feels going on, I love the way it feels as I wear it (like I haven't put anything on at all), and I love what it does for my skin's appearance and overall well being. I really hope this product stays around for a long, long time...
This product is like a very lightly tinted moisturizer. It can conceal minor redness and even out skin, but it won't do anything else. I like to use this in the winter months when my skin is dry. I wouldn't recommend it for oily skin or for people who are looking for coverage.
I have oily dehydrated flaky skin. I am NW 20 for reference. I purchased light medium.
this is my first BB and I have to say that I really love it for my skin. considering we are in the dead of a frigid winter and my skin is flaky and basically psychotic the fact that this leaves me with smooth skin is nothing short of a miracle.
I apply moisturizer first. Then I apply a thin coat of this product. Then I finish with my cover girl sensitive skin powder.
this product helps conceal my pores and makes my skin look nice but naked. I do use concealer over any visits or spots.
I am very breakout prone so I will see how this is doing after a week or so. But as of right now I am a fan.
this BB has no added fragrance which is a must for me because I am highly sensitive to fragrance. There is a slight sent but it is not offensive to me.
This bb cream is a lot more of a slightly tinted moisturizer. Very little coverage, and I found it made my skin very oily by the end of the day. It's not a terrible product for the price, but I probably wouldn't purchase again.
I'd give this a 3.5 to a 4. I got this in fair to light. It doesn't give a lot of(it's sheer) coverage but it also doesn't cake and flake on my(horribly) dry skin. Some foundations even make me itchy they dry out my skin so much. I feel like with a bit of concealer on my red areas it's fine for everyday. Lets be honest, this isn't a legit "BB cream" this is just a tinted moisturizer(in fact it's just like their old tm). Most American bb's seem to be tm's with a new name to cash in on the fad. But I like tinted moisturizers because, on an everyday basis, I don't need lots of coverage(it's okay if you do, this just isn't for you). This may not be good for oily skin because even I get a bit of shine on my nose throughout the day and need a touch of powder. Overall, I like it and would repurchase.
Current Skin Type: Very oily, but due to acne treatments I have very dry/flaky acne spots.
Purpose For Purchasing: I needed an inexpensive light moisturizer to keep those treated acne spots hydrated while not causing the rest of my face to be slick with oil.
With all of this in mind I would first like to say that this is a "Light Weight Face Lotion". In no way is this a light coverage foundation. The whole "Tinted Sheer Color" hype is just for business and selling purposes to make this product more appealing to the customer. I feel as though tinted moisturizers are perfect for oily skin because while you may feel like you should skip this step due to the natural hydration of your skin hydration is the key for keeping skin fresh and smooth for years to come despite the skin type; it's light enough to not clog your pores but hydrating enough to keep skin looking and feeling healthy. I've used body lotions in the past that claim to be good for the face and they just end up being way too heavy and greasy. Once I tried searching for light weight face lotions they all ended up being way too hard to find and if I so happened to come upon one it would be spending almost an arm and a leg. This product keeps my acne spots hydrated and flake free while not adding any additional oil to the rest of my face. I will be repurchasing.
I was looking for a bb cream, a.k.a a really light coverage foundation, this has absolutely no coverage. When you squirt the product out, it looks thick and smooth but when you start to apply it, it turns absolutely transparent! If I even can get the tiniest bit of coverage, it won't even cover the redness or uneven parts of my skin. Definitely will not be repurchasing, sorry.
I was looking for a tinted moisturizer, which evidently hardly anyone seems to make anymore. It's all called "BB cream" now.
I don't need a lot of coverage at all and don't like the heavy feel of regular foundation, so this is exactly what I was looking for. It's light, has SPF, and allows what little bare minerals I sweep across my face to set and stay.
If you are looking for a lot of coverage, this isn't for you. I'm not sure about it improving my skin, but it definitely hasn't made it worse or caused breakouts.
As far as this type of cream goes, it's the cheapest for the amount of product you get. All the other BB creams come in tiny little tubes for double the price or more. I'm not raving about it, and I haven't tried other BB creams, but for the price and purpose i am using it for, it's not a bad buy.
I purchased this because I wanted to try out something new for my skin! I hate to wear liquid foundations because I feel like they're just so heavy on my ski and I hate the feel of anything more than a moisturizer on my face. So I came across BB cream reviews on YouTube and found this one to be a good one to try out ..... BOY WAS I WRONG!!! This broke my skin out the very same day that I put it on my skin! I do not even have sensitive skin. I do have combination skin, and in the winter time it's more dry than normal, but this was horrible for my skin!! It felt greasy and sticky, and just ew! It gave low but decent coverage, but I like a natural skin finish anyways so that was t a big problem for me. But I just can't wear this anymore!
i got this on sale at walgreens for only $2.89. so not too much waste. it is very oily and sheer. it looked like i had nothin on my face. it is kinda sticky and not any coverage at all. it also broke me out. wont be repurchasing
