Received a sample of this and found it very drying. Will sick with my Bobbie rown tinted moisturiser.
Worse BB cream I have tried so far. Dr. Brandt has been the best (again so far). This gives no coverage at all - pretty much like putting basic moisturizer on but unfortunately, the moisturizing benefits are not even there (at least not for me). After being asked if I felt okay twice after use on different days, I realized it did not make my skin look better. Period.
I have very mixed feelings about this BB Cream. I like the cucumber-melon scent, it's very refreshing, and provides buildable coverage with a dewy-to-satin finish. I think it's great for layering under concealer for extra coverage, or, if you're oily like me, your staple pressed powder, but other than that it's nothing special. On the skin, the product "pilled up" or "balled up" almost instantly, which was very unattractive and almost impossible to get rid of. The packaging is okay but it's pretty expensive, so I don't think I'm going to repurchase.
I've been using this BB cream (my first) for about 7 months now. I don't like or need foundation, and the only reason I tried this was because it has SPF35, which is diffucult to find otherwise.
I use it in combination with the Clarins Hydraquench serum and it is great! You do have to pay attention when applying, to avoid streaks, and certainly avoid putting too much. If you're looking for a foundation that hides everything, this is the wrong product. I find it evens out the skin tone without giving the feeling that your face is clogged up.
So far it has saved my European skin from the harsh African sun, I look more refreshed and people still think I'm not wearing any make up. No dryness thanks to the hydraquench serum, for me this is a winning combination.
it does moisturize my skin for many hours
too expensive for what it offers
only 30 ml
It was a little bit greasy after 2 or 3 hours
So, it was a good bb cream but nothing special. I believe that maybelline's has the same results in a lower price.
This BB cream is just okay. The color is fine if you're pale-medium. My issue is that it's somewhat streaky and not that moisturizing for a BB cream. I also really dislike the strong scent. I would not repurchase.
This is the first and only BB creme that I tried. Since I tend to break out easily with foundations, I asked to try a sample first. When that went well, I bought the tube (in 'Light'). It was a great summer foundation. Made my skin look beautiful, glowy, and flawless... and I did get a few compliments when I wore it! Very good coverage for being more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation, and I love the SPF 35 aspect. However, the tube didn't last me all that long (I am used to getting close to a year out of foundation bottles, and this only lasted me about 5 months). The creme is quite thick, and I didn't find it was very 'spreadable,' so I'd have to use a lot more product than when I used my normal foundation (Guerlain Lingerie de Peau). Another drawback is there are only a couple of shades, which might make things difficult for you if your skin tone doesn't fall under the umbrella of what they offer. I'd recommend trying a sample first before buying. Still, I think I would buy this again next summer!
This is the second BB cream I've tried and I absolutely love it. It goes on easily and blends evenly. I still feel fresh at the end of a day. Hours after use, I don't feel like I've got to wipe a layer of make-up off my face. The Kanebo BB cream was too thick and left an unnatural feeling to my face. I will definitely buy the EL BB cream again.
First off I absolutely love Estee Lauder! So when I heard they were coming out with a BB cream, I had to try it. It has SPF 35 which is pretty much a dream come true for me, since most products only have up to SPF 15 or so. I actually really like the cucumber scent, which makes it very fresh. The consistency is great, though it's not very moisturizing. I had to put moisturizer on prior to this product, which defeats the purpose of an all-in-one BB cream. It was also too thick and heavy-feeling for my taste, and the product would settle into my pores, making the blackheads on my nose more noticeable. In the end I had to return this product because it wasn't working out for me :(
I got a sample and this one was surprising bad...
I liked the fresh cucumber scent, the refreshing effect and I found it moisturizing but the light one was plain dark yellow on my skin and went really patchy/ streaky on. After a while it adapts a bit but even to that point it's still not good. I'll pass.
