I'm reviewing the Australian version.
I really did not like this product at all! Firstly it STINKS!!! It is sooo foul! What makes it worse is that the smell still lingers around and I can still smell it on my face throughout the day! Yuck! Very light coverage and will only cover some redness, very very sheer, definitely not for people wanting light/medium - medium coverage. And I think the Australian one doesn't have spf. Would not buy again!
When I first used it I loved it! Although I have noticed a few flaws, such as:
-squeeze tube was slightly harder to control, as texture was slightly watery
-has a very sheer coverage, not too good for oily skin and SHOULD be set with a pressed powder
- make sure you get the correct color as I got mine in a shade too light and made my entire face have a halo/meets reddish glow on it
Overall a nice product, but I would recommend it for those who only need a very,very light coverage and NOT for those with oily skin! Also, you may want to use a foundation brush or sponge to apply, fingers may provide more oil :)
Although I didnt mind this product, there has been better for me and I will not repurchase
At first I liked this product as it was very lightweight and moisturizing, however I have combination to oily skin and later found out this was the main culprit in my recent breakouts. Also if you are looking for coverage this is VERY light coverage and only proved to cover a slight amount of redness, plus I ended up buying it in both light and light medium and didn't notice a big difference between the shades. I would stay away if you have oily skin, unless you are ready to apply a lot of powder to get rid of the shine this leaves on your face.
On the positive side, if you have regular or dry skin that isn't prone to breakouts and are looking for a little coverage with SPF and at a fairly inexpensive price this could be a good option for you.
Overall I love this product. I have normal skin with few blemishes and this works fantastic. It's very light, doesn't leave your skin looking cakey, and has spf so it's great for summer. It evens out my skin tone perfectly and has overall left my skin with a nice dewy glow. I use this on a daily basis with a little bit of cover up under my eyes and set it with a powder as it does wear off slightly in hot and humid temperatures or after long use. I would definitely buy this again and highly recommend it!
I like the cheap price of under 7 dollars is which was great. There's a lot of colors but I have dark olive skin especially in the summer and there wasn't really a shade that matched me. On a good note it doesn't smell like sunscreen. It doesn't make you look oily or greasy just dewy. It has minimal coverage and its very liquidy unlike the thicker BB creams I've tried before. Overall I really like it
Was okay, but i got the lightest shade and it was way too orange for my skin. I could still where it if I use very little but then you don't get much coverage.
I LOVE this! DRY SKIN HOLLLYYY!! NOO MORE FLAKES! I always wanted to get a foundation but dry skin HATEs foundation! sooo FLAKEY...eww so since my skin is pretty good hallelujah! I love using this and concealer. So very very light coverage and it does oxidize a tiny bit. but a bit of your normal powder covers it up and brings it back to normal. PLUS is has SPF so... LOve
You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one.
I don't love the packaging only because the top gets a little messy as you use it, but it's not unbearable and hardly a faulty design.
I've definitely gotten compliments while stepping out with only this product on and a swipe of mascara.
I like to let it really sink into my skin before applying any other product so add a couple extra minutes to your morning routine. Or just apply it before you drink your coffee then come back to put the rest of your face on.
I like this BB cream. Being only Â£7.99 in the UK it obviously isn't going to be amazing but it does a good job. I have normal skin with a few dry patches around my nose and it doesn't cling to them at all. I apply over a primer with my fingers (the real techniques buffing brush is good with it too though) and I find it lasts all day. It is light coverage but build able (if applied with a brush) but looks better once you have the rest of your makeup on. Sometimes mix with my bourjois healthy mix radiance reveal and it looks lovely; gives more coverage.
I tried this product because my roommate uses it and wanted a cheaper alternative to using a full face of pricey foundation everyday, especially on days I don't do much, and something that would be good for my skin. I really wanted to like this product. I could not. There is NO coverage at all. I have freckles and the one or two blemishes, so I know that not all of that could be covered, but literally nothing was covered and I might as well have not put anything on. I do have combination skin, but it's not too oily throughout the day. This product made me oily in a few hours, and putting on powder only made it look worse. Lastly, this product broke me out really bad. I used this product for about 3 weeks, and I could not figure out what was making me break out THAT bad. I did not think it was this product, but I've been off of it a week and my skin cleared right up. I did not notice any of the 8 benefits it talked about.
If you are ANY BIT oily, do not use. If you want any coverage at all, do not use. If you are prone to acne, do not use. Basically, do not use. Tinted moisturizers are better.
Just switched to Clinique's BB Cream -- pricey but worth it! More coverage, and my skin already looks better! and SPF 30!
