Does hide small in-corrections/blemishes
Blends in great
Smells a little
Makes my skin look oily after a couple of hours
This is my first BB cream that I have tried. I wasn't too sure how it was supposed to do. After reading some reviews I found that other people had the same comments. It makes my skin feel so oily after a couple of hours. It almost feel like its caked on a little because it feels heavy. I did notice though that it covers nicely how it says its supposed to. Maybe its due to my oily forehead and chin that this product wasn't for me. Lastly, I am almost certain this caused sudden burst of pimples. I normally get one maybe two a month but this stuff the more I began using it after maybe 2 1/2 months I realized it was clogging my pores. After not using it they went away. Again, maybe due to my already oily skin.
I've heard so many good things about BB Cream, but I'll have to try a different brand. This was really disappointing. It felt too heavy to wear all-over, and I should know better by now: when the only options are light/medium/dark, "light" is NEVER light enough. It looked orange-y on my skin, and overall didn't cover any better than a regular foundation.
I think this is definitely a must for dry skin. The coverage is really amazing (for a bb cream) and it is great for those who don't have many blemishes, maybe just some redness. I will say the lasting power is not as long as a foundation but much longer than a powder. It can get really dewy if you apply too much but once it dries or you set it with a powder, it's just amazing and is soooo natural looking.
I actually love this!I'm super pale and I find this shade suits me perfectly and doesn't turn orange at all. I don't think I would ever use it on its own but that's mainly because I suffer with acne and rosacea, but the way I use it results in a flawless-looking complexion:
First, I use La Roche Posay rosaliac ar intense to diffuse redness before I start applying make-up. Then using the heat of my fingers, I apply this BB cream all over my face to even out my skin tone. I then dot a little Vichy Dermablend foundation over any blemishes as a concealer, and set with a translucent powder to finish. It's the best product in my make-up routine, even though its the cheapest.
The only thing I don't like is that the cream can drip out of the tube if you're not careful and as its a bit oily, it can stain delicate fabrics. But overall, I LOVE it!!! :)
Another product I had to throw in the garbage :( At first, I thought this stuff was great. I applied it and it gave me glowing, even coverage. One hour into my day, however, this stuff had my skin looking like an oil slick, and the product was pretty much gone. I do have combination skin and can get oily midday, but I've never had it get like this especially so soon after applying. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone with oily to combination skin. I've had better success with super BB cream (from Korea) and neutrogenas healthy defense tinted moisturizer.
This BB cream is ok but I don't like it as well as L'Oreal or Clinique. It has moisturizing texture with some light coverage. It's not as silky or luxurious as the L'Oreal. And didn't give my skin the feeling of being repaired that I got with the Clinique. It's a reasonably priced, decent product but I think there are better options.
My mom bought this for me after seeing it mentioned in a Financial Times article, and I like it pretty well. It's a great moisturizer (my skin feels smooth and bouncy when I wash it off at the end of the day) and doesn't break me out. It doesn't stay matte or anything, but I didn't expect it to. I'm NC25 and I think that's about as light/cool as you can be with this 'light/medium' bb cream and not look like an oompa-loompa who had a run-in with a tanning bed once this stuff oxidizes. On my skin tone the oxidation that others mention isn't really a problem. It doesn't cover zits, but tones down general redness. I would like to try the oil-free version next.
This product is wonderful. Although a little drying for some skins. If you have lots of wrinkles or dry skin -- do not buy this product.
I was very excited to try this product based on all the reviews. I bought the light/medium and upon trying it on my hand it seemed to match pretty well. I tried to use it by itself and at first it seemed to be absorbing well but I ended up needing a powder. I did my make up as usual and decided to use this as a primer. It darkened a bit after half hour. It felt ok but it was nothing to rave about. I like my MAC studio fix on its own much better. I feel that this would be a better product for the summer to wear to the beach or the pool but it is not something I want to use every day or all day. It hasn't made me feel oily or dry but I don't like how it looks after wearing it for 6-7 hours. When I put my studio fix on, I leave it alone and it stays the same ALL day. No surprises every time I look in the mirror. Not sure I am on the BB bandwagon. Too Face is tacky and settles into creases. Lancome oxidizes and turns orange. Clinique's is a pricey tinted moisturizer- not enough coverage. I'm done trying! Until I try the Asian ones. But discouraged to buy online as there are a lot of knock-offs.
So, after applying, for the first 5-15 minutes, I love the effect this had on my late-30's skin: kinda dewy, skin tone evened like a light fundation.
But, under cool, dry conditions or warm, humid conditions this stuff always turned fake tan orange on me and within two weeks I couldn't apply it to the bridge of my nose of brow because my eyes were becoming sensitized to the smell.
My skin did not improve over these two weeks.
This made me look awful and I hate products like these because I'm a busy person and I shouldn't have to worry that a product will turn me orange or have some other embarrassing effect -- it's one thing to not give me the skin-improving results, but let me go out into the world looking worse? No thank you and Garnier has lost a customer.
