Previously, I've used Garnier's BB Cream that wasn't oil-free and I had no idea that it had oil in it. So, I bought this BB Cream and never regretted it.
Pros:
-Blends in nicely
-Matte finish
-Scent isn't so overpowering that your face swells like a blow fish
-Only a small amount is sufficient
-Face doesn't end up looking like a grease ball
Cons
-Tends to emphasize some dry patches on face, not a whole lot, but about the size of a fingertip
-Can make skin look a bit pasty (esp. for me, b/c I am naturally tan)
-Formula is runny, so pouring out the amount is pretty tricky
Other than those listed Pros & Cons, this BB Cream is a good improvement from their previous one, since it doesn't make your face look like a complete grease ball. However, the part about making skin appear pasty is true. Especially if the cold air is blowing against your face, you will look like a ghost. Despite all that, this BB Cream will be my Holy Grail for its matte finish.

Update:

I switched over to the Medium shade because the Light really did make me look paler than usual. I am having no problems, either, with this particular BB Cream, except that it does tend to get everywhere, which explains why I am afraid to put this in my bag/luggage/purse, due to the fear of an explosion/leak.

The smell remains to be the same, nothing too overwhelming, or nauseating. I would recommend this product to my other friends, since it has a nice coverage for those who are battling with acne scars. Plus, I don't have this itchy feeling on any parts of my face, unlike their regular BB Cream (the one that isn't oil-free).
