I liked this product at first but then after using it I think im starting to realize that this is why im getting little frequent breakouts! Probably won't be buying again.. Onto the next one!
After using this bb cream for almost two months, I feel like I've used it enough to give a good review.
1. Makes my skin look dewy and soft.
2. Easy to apply and blend.
3. Brightens my complexion.
4. Doesn't make my skin break out or get angry.
1. Sheer--very sheer--coverage, which I expected based on other reviews but was surprised to find out *how* sheer. I have to put a little concealer on over my cheeks to even out some of the redness I have there.
2. Doesn't last long at all, maybe 4-6 hours at the most.
3. Doesn't look good if you try to reapply throughout the day. I found that it became way too dark on my face, and also lost some of its luster, which is the appeal of the bb cream for me.
Overall...I do like this product for those days when I want to feel more natural with my makeup and don't intend to go anywhere for a long time, or go out after work. I've used Bare Minerals for seven years (and I still love it, but was interested in the idea of a bb cream), so I was also surprised that this bb cream didn't make me break out like I do whenever I use anything but Bare Minerals. That was a nice plus. And I will say that my skin looks absolutely lovely when I first apply it. However, for me, this is a makeup I can only use if I want to look bright and smooth for a few hours. This is definitely not an all-day kind of wear, and not a makeup you can reapply throughout the day...unless you take off the first layer with makeup remover and start fresh. I would (and will) buy this again, but it can never be my HG face makeup.
I have combination skin with a tendency to get pretty oily on my T-zone. I usually wear Bare Minerals and wanted to try a BB cream. This sets very quickly and can be difficult to blend. It feels a little heavy to me but I'm so used to the feeling of no make-up with Bare Minerals that maybe I'm a little sensitive. I like that it adds a little extra coverage and evens out my color; I think it brightens my complexion some and it hasn't made my skin oily during the day (surprise!). I will probably try another BB cream next time but I'm not disappointed with this one.
I originally quite liked this, but the longer i used the the less enamoured i was.
It's orange. Plain and simple, it is orange. I'm a very, very pale girl, so i'm open to believing it's just on me it looks completely the wrong colour, but i've noticed that much of the criticism is about the colour. Perhaps mixed with a moisturiser it's a bit better, but I just can't get this to work with my skin.
If you're looking for a sheer coverage that looks good with a powder on top, this is for you, but only if you can get the colour to match you.
Generally, this product works well on people with combination skin and dry skin. It has a very light scent and an spf, which I like. I think the claims are pretty ridiculous, but if all you want is sheer-medium coverage then I'd recommend this product.
BB cream? Sadly, no. If you have ever tried a proper Korean BB cream, then you will be dreadfully disappointed in this. However, it is absolutely the best tinted moisturizer I have ever used. It's just divine- it has a small amount of coverage, just enough to make your skin look even, smooth and glowy, and it adjusts (within reason) to your skin tone without oxidizing. The texture is a little on the thin side, which can be annoying when you're squeezing it out, but that makes it easier to blend. It's available in five shades, and with the slight sheerness I think that everyone will be able to find a color that suits them. The undertones are neither too pink or too yellow, so it's almost universal.
Shades: Light, Light/Medium, Medium, Medium/Deep, Deep
Price: $7.44 at Target
Packaging: Small but sleek white tube, with a gradient of the product color and bubbly pink and white text.
Verdict: This beats every foundation/tinted moisturizer I've ever tried, since I'm not concerned with coverage. Definitely my HG and I will repurchase.
I would definitely consider this to be a tinted moisturizer rather than BB cream. I bought this from Walmart when I was first learning about BB creams. I don't think this product is terrible but I have very oily skin and this does not make it look better. I think it looks decent on my skin considering I have some acne scars and I have dark circles under my eyes. I use this before I put foundation on and touch it up with some powder. I like the application of the BB cream. It matches my skin well and smooths on nicely. The BB cream doesn't last long either which is kind of disappointing. It may be better for if you need to make a quick trip to the store and just need a light cover up on your face. I don't mind using it but I will definitely be looking for a better product.
8 in 1 BB Cream? LOL Yeah Right.... A tinted moisturizer that made my face look hydrated and fresh? Exactly. This stuff works great with my dry skin, I like the spf and I like the sheer coverage. It works well for layering under other foundations and keeps them from looking cakey or splotchy. I thought this will be nice in the summer time because of how light it is and the high spf it has, however this isn't long wearing at all. The first time I tried it out, I applied it on a clean face and that was it. It lasted about 2 hours, which I didn't do much, didn't sweat or anything. I doubt this would last 45 minutes in the summer, and I'm not one to reapply my makeup constantly throughout the day. The shade selection doesn't look like it would work for everyone but the lightest shade in this was PEFECT for me. It was light enough and not too orange.
I don't believe for even a second that long term use of this is going to help my skin tone or any of the other long term claims they mades BUT I think it's a great layering product for me.
This is amazing especially if you have normal to dry skin. It lasts all day and gives a very nice dewy finish. My skin feels soft at the end of the day. Even though it has titanium dioxide, it does not look ashy on my skin. I have this in medium-deep.
