Best BB I've tried so far. (I've found them to be too cakey). This would make me look like I was trying to be a fairy if I wore it alone, but under light dust of powder, looks fantastic. I have that healthy, glowing from within look. I get my skincare from my skincare, so my expectations weren't enormous. Surprisingly, my very irritated, red cheeks look much better after two week's use. I use Retin-A and find it quite moisturising enough after I cleanse with micellar water, but the SPF could be higher. I don't know how it's going to go under my SPF 50 now the weather's warming up.
EDIT: Have bought the medium shade as well - it seems slightly more matte than the light one. (But never fear - the light one serves as a spectacular highlighter!!!) They blend together well, without being too pink!
- Redness in my skin was improved a little after about a week.
- I had fewer breakouts.
- It's not too pigmented; so the color choices are very forgiving.
- It doesn't turn orange! Yay!
- IT'S NOT CAKEY! YES!!!
- Coverage is only OK. If stippled with a brush you can get a little bit
- It has a bit of a dirty gritty feeling while on your skin. Bluh.
- If applied too heavily, it can look shiny.
This is the first drugstore BB Cream I've liked. The only one that actually does what it claims. Better than a tinted moisturizer but not the best BB Cream, I'm sure. A good basic option though.
I bought this on a whim because I had a coupon for $2 off or something and it still came to almost $20. I did not read the packaging fully to see illuminator, so I was shocked when my skin looked oily and greasy. This bb cream covers NOTHING, leaves me streaky no matter how well I blend and makes me look like I have not washed my face for days.. May work well on drier skin types, however. I may use this as a highlighter if I run out of my benefit one.
Really wanted to like this but I felt like it was to orange for me eventhough everyone told me I did not look orange. When I first put this on the scent was nice but I eventually ending up scrubbing this off my face at work because the smell got to me and was giving me a headache. I guess for someone who isn't sensitive to smells would like this. I am going back to the Maybelline BB cream since it has no scent.
Loving this BB Cream. I got it on sale for 11.99$ at rite aid and got an UP+ reward, otherwise I think it is $16.99 at Ulta- which I think is a lot of money for this or any drugstore BB cream. I would buy again on sale. I find it's similar to the Garnier BB cream (scent is even similar), however the finish is not quite as dewy on me, and is more velvety instead.
I usually buy the light/medium shade, but went with the light since reviews were saying it oxidized to have organe-ish hues, plus it's still winter here and I haven't seen much sun yet. I'm glad I went with the light. It hasn't oxidized at all for me.
This didn't make me break out and worked as sunscreen, which gives it an edge over many foundations I've tries. However, I won't be buying it again. The cream feels very heavy for relatively light coverage. The Light color gave my face overall a faint orange tint. And worst of all for me, the cream makes my face shiny as I first apply it, and my face just gets shinier and more oily as the day goes on. I'll mix what I have left with some more neutral tinted moisturizer, just to use up what's left, and then I'm done.
This is the first BB cream I've tried and the velvety feel made me a fan of BB creams. I like the feel of this cream and the way it makes my skin feel. It's very moisturizing and has a light coverage. I use a fuller coverage foundation around my eyes and nose to give added coverage. Check out the color prior to buying because the Medium was slightly too dark for me without a tan.
I don't understand the negative reviews for this bb cream. I love it! It did not turn my face orange and actually matched my skin pretty perfectly (unlike the garnier bb cream which does turn my face orange). I also have sensitive skin and this did not break me out at all. I really like how light this bb cream feels on. I could see why someone who likes really thick coverage wouldn't like this though. It is similar to tinted moisturizers. The first day I wore this bb cream I got two compliments on my skin! So I would definitely say give it a try!
I don't understand why people are being so negative about this product either. Although, I do get why people say it's turning them orange. I tested the medium on the back of my hand to see if it would be my shade and it turned out WAY too dark and contrasted. I was a bit surprise since medium tones usually fit me well. so I went with the light and it was perfect! I've only tried 4 bb creams. 2 from the holika holika brand (lovely, inexpensive bb creams, although a tad light), the garnier bb cream (oily oily oily) and the l'oreal youth code. it may not be the most perfect bb cream out there, but i prefer it so much more than the garnier one. 4.5 out of 5. ☆〜（ゝ。∂）
I usually never buy anything without reading a review about it first, but i had a coupon for this and it was on sale, so i decided why not. I got home and before using it, i decided to look up reviews, after reading the bad reviews i was worried and upset with my product choice, so i decided to just try it out now. So far i like it alot better than the garnier bb cream, the garnier feels heavy on my face, and oily, like im wearing a thick make up. This bb cream feels light on my face and not sticky, and NO IT DID NOT TURN ORANGE ON ME! it has a light a coverage and im liking it alot so far, i will write another review overtime to see it help my skins overall apparance like it claims, hopefully it does cuase thats the main reason i am using bb creams, and THE SPF 15, I LOVE THAT IT HAS SUNSCREEN, AND I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT IT ONLY BEING SPF 15, DO YOUR RESEARCH ON SUNSCREEN, AND SPF 15 IS REALLY NO DIFFERENT THAN SPF 30. AND I MUST SAY I WORE ONLY SPF 15 SUNCREEN ON MY FACE WHILE I WAS FLORIDA AND MY FACE NEVER BURNED. I WILL RECOMMEND IF YOUR LOOKING FOR MORE COVERAGE, USE A POWDER FOUNDATION OVER YOUR BB CREAM. sweep it on lightly to give amazing natural looking coverage, not cakey. YES i am young, but i decided to get youth code cause to me its never to early to start fighting against aging.. lol :) hope this review was helpfull. and remember it really just depends on your own skin type, and color to see if a product will work for you, everybodys skin is unique in its own way.
