I have a combination skin type and like a small amount of coverage when I use a BB cream. After trying this out for a month, I find this BB cream far too translucent in comparison to other creams like Nude by Nature and it never lasts a full day. Also if you have oily skin this is not the cream for you, after half a day your face will be completely shiny and don't even think about wearing it on a hot day, it will just melt off. On the other hand if you have dry skin, and prefer a very light coverage then it may be just right. The other massive negative of this product is that the cream is so runny that every time I open the bottle the cap is full of cream.
Nice finish, gives a natural and healthy glow to skin. Light coverage, which I'm OK with. Stays on all day. The texture is quite creamy and easy to work with. But IMO this is not to be used during the summer. It's been quite warm over here lately and this BB cream makes my skin very shiny, plus it's made it break out. So if you have oily skin you should probably avoid this stuff. But other than that it's a decent product.
I don't like how it feels on the skin, it's a bit too greasy for me. The first day I had it on was really hot outside and it felt like it was melting from my skin! Not exactly what I expected from it. It was also hard to blend smoothly (with no strokes), it took me longer than applying foundation. The bottle it comes in is very messy, pump bottles are better for this kind of product. The only pro for this BB cream is the colour, it matched my skin really well.
If you don't have oily skin, this really is the product to use! I love it! I apply it everyday and it covers everything perfectly! I feel that it is best used with a powder on top and then as usual use a setting spray to set it all in! If you do have oily skin, I would recommend that you wash your face with products that remove oil and use oil free moisturizers and that would help not make your face oily when used with this product! The product really isn't all that expensive so if you don't love it you can always give it to a girlfriend who might like it or use it and test other products after, trying new things is half the fun of putting on make up anyways! :)
I have mixed feelings about this BB cream - to put it simply, it looks really nice at first but leaves me greasy. I can keep powdering throughout the day and it's alright (it stays on pretty well - but I'm shiny), but I just think there is probably a better BB cream out there for people like me with skin that is already a little oily to begin with.
So the product lives up to its 8 promises, haha. This really gives a light, natural and fresh look. Totally age appropriate, I think anyone can wear this, and I'm 16. This is NOTHING like a foundation. Even with my matte powder on top, I still get a healthy dewy look, not oily! My only complaints are a) not enough product for 10 bucks and b) not enough coverage of scars and blemishes.
I have read a lot of the reviews about this product and there appears to be a common theme: The Finish. The words that come up frequently are sheer,oily,transparent; I have used the product and am quite happy with it but I have never used any other BB cream so it wouldn't be proper for me to make any comparisons. But as far as what a lot of people say about the finish, we have to remember that this product is only a BB. It was just meant to offer the light, sheer coverage of a tinted moisturizer. I wish that the coverage was a little more matte though, but I have used it as an all over foundation and dabbed a foundation with heavier coverage over some spots. I like it as an all-around foundation. It's like putting your hair in a ponytail or wearing jeans and a t-shirt: It's good on it's own but there are times when you might want to "dress it up"
I love using this for summer. On it's own the coverage is very sheer so I mix it with Maybelline's Fit Me to get a desired coverage.
The first time I tried it, it was very sheer. My sister said it didn't even look like I was wearing foundation. I also didn't like how it didn't look like I was wearing any, but I could feel it. So unless you want a sheer BB cream, I say this one may work. I don't think I'll be using it too much.
Sorry to give such a low rate, but I hate this. If you have oily skin, this is the worst bb cream you can get. No matter what primer I used while using thia product, my face would be drentched w/ oil. It melts off in the winter or summer. The only thing that was good about it for me was the color. It blends to you skin color (a lil darker) but its alright. It also gives a really nice glow. So its understandable why people love it buts its not for me.
