This product is suppose to be an anti-ageing bb cream, well most of the good asian BB creams are already anti-ageing products, without clogging the pores or irritating the skin. This product didn't do anything for my skin, not a good coverage at all, and caused me break outs. This product made me give up on trying the western BB creams.
I don't understand the negative comments about this product turning orange on them; for thats why I LOVE this drug store makeup! I have fair, but pink skin and found most foundations have too much yellow, or orange, or even brown in them... but this one stayed true to my fair color. Its not just a tinted moisturizer, either. Its a unique blend of a foundation; good SPF and less greasy than many. This one is slightly thick, but spreads easily. It dries nicely. And stays on extremely well though out the day. I have mature skin that needs some coverage, some brightening and this product does all that well. I've used this for about two months now and am very pleased.
Not a fan. I already had the L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier and I really like it. But since this is made for more mature skin, I thought I would try it.
First, it's really, really thick. I didn't like the way it felt on my face. It's got a pretty strong fragrance, too, which isn't bad except that is an irritant for some people. The Light is way, way too pink -- and not all that light either. Although it seemed to buff into my skin nicely, my face ended up a completely different color than my neck.
It is heavily pigmented for a BB cream, although I can't say that it really covered anything. Back to Ulta it goes.
Packaging: I think the packaging is nice and sleek.
Color: the color is very true to what it says and isn't a bit orange.
Lasting power: this lasts all day with a bit of powder
Price: I got this at target for $7 which I though was great for 2.5 fl. oz.
Pigmentation: it has great coverage for bb cream just enough with a little bit of concealer.
How I use it: I use it with the covergirl smoothers concealer on bigger blemishes and I set it with the covergirl smoothers powder.
This is my first review - I felt compelled to write it because this is the first product I have tossed in the trash after using the first time. It turned my skin orange immediately. I used the "fair" since I am fairly complected. It was not moisturizing at all and was absolutely gross. I thought I would try it since it was on sale for half price. Big mistake!
I got sucked in by the hype & purchased this a while back, and paid $15 or $16 for it at Walgreens (this is why I selected "4" for price - that's pretty high for a drugstore item IMHO). I liked this just fine, but frankly, it is nothing more than a tinted moisturizer. I gave this a 3 overall because as a tinted moisturizer it is just fine. As a BB cream (which is what it claims to be), it really doesn't perform. Coverage was light and sheer, and it was somewhat hydrating. Same as all my other tinted moisturizers. I did not see anything spectacular about this product, and since I already have several tinted moisturizers, I ended up giving it to a friend. Unless I'm in need a tinted moisturizer, I will not repurchase.
i love this so much more than the loreal magic skin beautifier bb cream (comes in the skinnier tube). i wrote a review on that and i hated it because it turned my face orange! this product is better by a landslide! nice coverage and good color for me (i have it in medium). its my favorite out of all the drugstore bb creams!
This is really cost more than other drug store bb cream. I don't think it provide that much coverage for people with acne. But I like how it last longer than other and is not greasy.
I don't know why this product is receiving such poor reviews; I really like it. I'm not giving it a 5 because I'm not yet ready to give it "Holy Grail" status, however, it's pretty darn good. I'm 55 so I have normal to dry skin. Nicely emollient and I think the color coverage is great. This is all I use during the day (well, plus concealer on my circles). No foundation...the color coverage is that good. If your skin is on the oily side, you might go with Garnier, but if you need the coverage and moisturizing properties, give it a try. Save your receipt and the worst possible thing that could happen is you have to return it. I'm at Ulta all the time, anyway, so it's not a big deal to me. Hope that helps!
At first I did like it. It covered my lightly blemished skin and moisturized it well. Over time I started realizing it did cause break out, a severe one at that, causing giant cysts to break out all over my cheeks. This was one of my worst break out yet. This was my first bb i ever used and I have no idea whether to steer clear of bb creams in general or this one itself was a dud. I'm going to try clinique next after a music festival (on account that I might break out again so I will avoid using it until afterwards). If this doesnt work out I'm done with BB creams. That would be disappointing because I did love how light it is and I hate using foundation because it is so heavy on my skin that dries out and flakes easily and makes my skin look caked with make up. If anyone knows of a BB cream that will NOT ever break you out preferably without the ingredient titanium dioxide, I would greatly appreciate it if you could suggest it to me.
