Too oily and the colour is totally wrong especially when applying more than one layer.
I'm combination-dry skin. got this as my first BB cream and I actually like it. I wouldn't say I love it, but I would buy it again.
-gives a light coverage
-it's buildable - you can add more layers for more coverage
-it's very hydrating
-doesn't clog pores
-has a shimmer that brightens skin when used under a foundation
-the shade is perfect, very blendable, fits me well
I use it under my foundation for more moisture and bright and SPF or when I don't want to wear any make up
-didn't see any improvements on my skin although I've been using this everyday for over 6 months
-It's not a "skin perfector". It's just a tinted moisturiser with SPF
-I noticed that if you don't use any foundation or powder on top, it washes away very easily, specially on a warm weather. If you sweat, you can actually see the cream coming out
I will not use this again. It goes on very greasy and the coverage is very sheer. I felt it slide off my face during the day.
I started hearing all this buzz about BB creams and decided to try this one to see what all the hype is about. I have really good skin for a 39yr old, but still prefer more of a medium coverage for my face to make it look flawless. When I applied this, it reminds me of a colored lotion with strong scent. Everytime I moved I kept getting whiffs of this coming from my face, the scent reminded me of something my mother used when I was a kid, can't remember what it was. I don't like a scent on my face for sure! It really didn't cover much so why bother? I ended up returning it, and at this point think BB creams are not really for me. I may try the Maybelline one just out of curiosity though.
Everyone really hates this product, but I think it's ok. It hasn't made me greasy, however I mix it with a lot of moisturizer before applying it to my face.
I did not find this product very good at all. It left me very patchy and after a few hours of wear it started to turn a very odd orangey colour! It wasnt very easy to apply, however I didn't feel as though I wasnt wearing any make up whilst wearing it, it was very light weight. In the end I gave it to my mum and she absolutely loves it!
I like this a hundred times better than the Missha BB cream I bought on Amazon last winter. It doesn't have greyish undertones and the texture is creamy, not pasty. It blends seamlessly and gives my skin a dewy look without looking greasy. The SPF seems to work well too -- I don't have to wear additional sunscreen underneath to prevent a burn. Will definitely repurchase.
Bought a large tube for under $10 on Amazon.com. continued >>
Not impressed. It made my skin feel/look greasy, and despite being the light shade it was still too dark for my fair skin which is odd because I actually have a foundation and a tinted moisturizer that are about the same color, if not a little darker. Didn't like the way it made my face feel and look, and I had to use a touch more powder than I usually do to make it a little more matte.
I should have known better than to try something like this from a drugstore instead of at a proper makeup counter, but I kept seeing rave reviews in magazines so I thought I'd give it a go. This stuff is a perfect example of not trusting what the mags rave about. Wish I'd looked it up on here before buying it.
I wish I had read the reviews of this product on MUA before buying it. I'd been reading about miracle BB creams for some time now, and really wanted to sample some. SPF of 15, which is pretty low. I usually layer on some SPF 50 underneath, and then apply this on after a few minutes.
Price: $13? This was actually the deciding factor for me. Not too bad for a light foundation with some SPF
Feel: greasy, unfortunately. It applies pretty decently, but feels a bit heavy on my face.
Scent: surprisingly refreshing, sweet, and light.
I went to my local CVS with the intent to buy the L'Oreal BB cream that had a sample in Cosmo last month (this month was Maybelline's!). I wound up buying the Garnier only because the price was better at this particular store. When i first put it on it felt kind of greasy and I was dissapointed. After a few minutes, however, it set in to a nice lightweight coverage that typically lasts at least throughout my work day. I am overall pleased with this product and feel it is comprable to the tinted moisturizers or lightweight foundations I like to wear. It makes my skin look nearly flawless, but lacks the luminosity of the original L'Oreal product I had been after. Some experimentation fixed that with an illuminating primer underneath, but that sort of detracts from the simplicity of using a BB cream in the first place!
