I bought this product because I have very uneven skin and hoped it would even out my skin. Unfortunately I have very oily skin and this product made it even oilier. My face definitely had a glow to it but it was very orange. I returned the product and got my money back.
I have been really enjoying my product. It is not my favorite bb cream, but it is definitely a good one and I would buy it again. I bought it for the purpose of wearing it on days when I don't want full foundation. Also for days spent outside or by the pool. I thought it would be perfect since it has spf 30 and it also provides light/buildable coverage. I usually apply 2 layers and it masks the redness in my face and mostly covers any other imperfections I may have. I have pretty normal/acne prone skin and this does not make me oily at all..but I do set it with a powder (I set everything with a powder anyways) to help with longevity. It lasts the majority of the day on my skin.
If you're looking for something that's light/ buildable coverage, has decent spf, feels great on the skin and is very easy to wear, and also very easy to remove..I'd say get this. Do not buy it if you're looking for fuller coverage.
After reading so many reviews about this product I thought I HAVE to try it. Such a disappointment. First off, the color fair to light is orange. Then I thought there'd be a natural grow, not oily looking. I can't even explain how gross it felt on my skin. I went from Garnier Combination to Oily, and will definitely be going back.
I have such mixed feeling's about this product. This is my first BB cream. I choose it because it was oil free and pump packaging. Smells like sunscreen be careful around your eyes. Fairly nice smell. Very easy to blend and apply. It does have a sheen to it - was not glittery on me. I'm just not sure if it does anything great for me. It's not horrible but not great either! I don't have any serious problems with my skin/combination with no scars or bad marks. Coverage was very transparent and light didn't notice any difference btw bare skin and adding this. Maybe I need to go out buy at least 3 BB creams and 3 new liquid foundations available on the market and keep receipts and return what does not work. I'm curious to try Smashbox. Not sure what Ulta's return policy is? If I found something better I would return it.
This is my favorite drugstore bb cream so far! First of all my impressions of it was horrible, it's so ridiculously expensive. I actually felt bad for purchasing it at first. It only comes in "Fair/Light" which for me, personally, it happens to be the perfect color. I know a lot of people that would have a huge problem with that though. I hope they get them in more colors really soon. I prayed for this color though, because my last purchase of a bb cream was the Garnier one, but I got it in the wrong color. (I got that one in "Light/Medium", which was way too dark and orange for my skin). When I got home and opened up the box, I was shocked. I felt worse for purchasing it because, it's tiny. 2.5fl oz, and $14.97 at Walmart. I know, there are more expensive products in the world, but as a drugstore product...come onnnn. It hurts. Anyway, I decided to put some on that night. My skin is very prone to break-outs. Very oily also. I liked the consistency of the product as I smoothed it on my clean face. It actually felt good to put it on. I have a few hyper-pigmentation acne scars here and there, and it made them less visible. I'm pretty sure you will still need cover up. But for me, that doesn't matter too much because I'm used to adding cover-up to my daily routine. The next day, I decided to pair this bb cream up with my "Maybelline dark spot corrector cover-up." First I dabbed the poof of the cover-up on my spots and then applied the bb cream. It worked like a dream so far. I was really impressed! So I recommend trying that, with any concealer that you have. So far in that week, it didn't make me break-out one bit. I decided though, to give it the most nightmarish test you could think of. I applied my Aveeno bb cream at night and continued the lazy tactics for a whole week. I slept with it on. When I woke up every morning there was no change in my face whatsoever. No pimples, no blackheads, no whiteheads...nothing. I was very happy about that! Still, there's no ugly break-outs. (Garnier one made me break-out a little bit.) I believe there *might* be some shine to this Aveeno one, but for me, I really didn't notice it all that much. I think it made my skin look more "healthy and bright" than just shiny. Also, as "BelleSade" 's review (the review that got me to buy this bb cream) points out, "It smells good (my husband likes smelling my face now, as strange as that is....)" It's very true. My SO hates the smell of lotions and sunscreen, and it was very important for me to get a tolerable smelling cream with spf. He really likes the smell of it on my face! It's very relieving, so that is a major plus. I really can't say anything bad about this cream, except for the hideous price and that it doesn't come in more colors. It's just really something you should probably try if you have an extra $15 lying around.
The only drugstore "BB cream" I've loved. I have pale skin, vitiligo, and acne marks. This makes them nearly vanish, and doesn't give me any more breakouts or makes my eyes itchy like other BB creams have given me. This has fairly good coverage, enough for when you just don't want to go the whole nine yards with extensive concealers and foundation and so on. It smells good (my husband likes smelling my face now, as strange as that is....), and it doesn't look shiny on my face, although I apply a fairly thin layer. Basically, I love this product and will buy more as soon as I run out.
I was excited to try this for many reasons. It is for problem skin, the fact that it is Aveeno means that it might actually have good skin clearing properties, and it is in fact a large amount for the steeper price (I got it for $15 but it is 2.5 ounces - ounce for ounce cheaper than the Revlon version I've been using and enjoying). Got it home, tested it on my hand. Love the pump with this. Applied over basic moisturizer to my face. I tried one layer and was pleased. It was definitely a more powdery feel versus the Revlon. Went ahead and applied a bit more to my cheeks where my redness is, and it started the dreaded peeling up and not blending. It seemed to dry very quickly, as though you would need to do each section of your face one at a time so that its blendability was still there. I finally got it decently blended, and in my bathroom, I thought it looked pretty good! Shade was a match to my fair/light neutralish tone. Not even close to the shine of the Revlon. Covered dark circles and some old acne scares pretty well. Now here's the deal breaker, and why I will be returning this: GLITTER. Took a mirror outside and looked and I was as shimmery as a VS model. Horrible. I work outside and need SPF but cannot wear anything glittery as it just makes me look ridiculous.
This product may work if you want a little "glow" while working inside or something, or for low lighting in the evenings. But if you're like me and shun all things with mica/shimmer/glitter, this is not for you. This is what I get for not reading ingredients. Bought at CVS so back it will go.
I really loved this. ALOT. but the lightest shade was too orange for me so I had to return it. If they had one that was actually for fair people then I would buy it forever. It made my skin look amazing and didn't break me out. I'm trying a more expensive BB cream now and it matches my skin tone but I hate the texture of it compared to this one...oh well...maybe they will make my shade in the future? If they do I'll totally buy it again! Until then...no.
I like Aveeno products but not this one. Very drying, looked uneven and patchy. Tried mixing it with moisturizer but it did not improve the results. I really wanted it to work but unfortunately not a product for me.
I purchased this product hoping I could find something that could moisturize my skin while providing a bit of coverage and a glow. At first application, I did not use a primer or moisturizer and was extremely disappointed. I have dry skin, and this product accentuated this completely. I tried the product with a primer and moisturizer and was very unimpressed. There is pretty obvious glitter which doesn't provide a glow, it looks like I applied shimmery eye shadow all over my face. The moisturizer also oxidized on my skin in a horrible way, so I had orange tinted dry patches all over my face. If you have dry skin and sensitive, acne-prone skin, steer clear of this product. After a week of use I have come to realize this product has broken me out horribly as well. Tiny red patches everywhere!
