This is not a BB Cream. I wish all the big names would stop touting their so called BB creams as BB creams, cause they are not. If you have used a real Korean or Japanese BB cream you know what I am talking about. I bought this because I needed a Sunscreen plus moisturizer that would not break me out. I am actually using this under Mineral makeup and it works fine for that purpose. I would call the finish on this semi-natural and dewy. A little too oily even on my dehydrated face. I think as a Mineral makeup primer, it works fine. I need less minerals, So it's basically a tinted moisturizer/Sunscreen and not a BB cream. I won't be buying it again. I'll stick with Skin79 or Missha for a real BB cream.
I'm giving it a 3 because it's a decent primer and it does seem to blur some flaws on my face. This is not for oily skin at all. Drier types may like it.

Hated this thing. After all the raves about BB creams, i decided to get this one. Boy was i sooooo disappointed. Strong fragrance. the worse part, it made me break out terribly by the end of the day.

This definitely has a place in my arsenal. I prefer TMs or light coverage makeup. The color I purchased was light and it's a dead on match for my NW 20-23 skin. What I like about the shade is that it isn't pure gold, as I find is the norm in light shades. Stila and Maybelline I'm talking to you. The coverage is beautiful, slightly luminous, but I did notice more luminescence than I care for in the bright sunlight. I think some HD silica powder or any other sheer powder would handle this. But, today I used a tiny drop of this mixed with my Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer #30 light to neutral and at the end of the day I had a non oily, not "glowy" finish. I like it. So, I am not sure if I would use it alone, but as a boost to some other more matte TMs, yes. As for the BB cream claims, I have no idea. I've never used a Japanese BB cream ad it seems that the US BB creams, for the most part, are just light foundations. Just have reasonable expectations of what products can and can't do. Price? $11.99, several coupons, final price about $8 at CVS.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
Price: This was on sale at CVS for $11.99 + I had a coupon for a buck or two off. This is usually all I need to give something a shot.
Color: Not sure why, but CVS only had this in Light and Medium. There were no testers, but I took a shot and picked up Medium since that’s what I wear for Smashbox’s BB Crčme. I am an NC43 and found the Medium to be a shade too light, but the formula was sheer enough that its still wearable. My neck is a shade lighter than my face, so everything blended pretty well. The color stayed true all day. I was actually hoping it would oxidize a little to darken the color a touch, but color integrity remained intact.
Texture: This was creamy, but relatively light-weight, as expected of a balm. I blended into my skin easily, without an streaking.
Packaging: Comes in a silver flip top, squeeze tube. I did not like that product has to squeeze through a small volcano to dispense. I makes the process messy and they product immediately gets caught in the cap after your first use. (Think… ketchup squeeze bottle)
Overall Thoughts: This wore well, but got a little oily by the end of the day. Its nothing blotting can’t fix. I’m sure I could also give this a light dust of my powder foundation to correct my issue with the color and prevent the greasiness from forming. While I like this product, there’s nothing exceptional about it. I would not repurchase unless I could not find anything better and this was on sale for $10 or less.
About Me: I’m a skin care junkie and like to mix and match my skin care products everyday to use whatever my skin needs at that time. I have very very sensitive skin and suffer from a sun allergy, eczema, and contact dermatitis. When I do break out or have irritation, the dreaded hyperpigmentation follows. So I run the gamut on skin care products on the search for the next big thing that doesn’t irritate my skin.

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!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
- 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 $20. I did not read the packaging fully to see illuminator, so I was shocked when my skin looked oily and greasy. This bb cream covers NOTHING, leaves me streaky no matter how well I blend and makes me look like I have not washed my face for days.. May work well on drier skin types, however. I may use this as a highlighter if I run out of my benefit one.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
Really wanted to like this but I felt like it was to orange for me eventhough everyone told me I did not look orange. When I first put this on the scent was nice but I eventually ending up scrubbing this off my face at work because the smell got to me and was giving me a headache. I guess for someone who isn't sensitive to smells would like this. I am going back to the Maybelline BB cream since it has no scent.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Loving this BB Cream. I got it on sale for 11.99$ 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.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Hazel
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.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
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.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
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!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
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.

This has SPF 15 and comes in light or medium. I find that I need both....in winter light alone works well, medium works in summer or when applying this during the day over my usual sunscreen which contains ZO and is somewhat whitening. The finish this gives is nice. Dewey, light diffusing, blurs imperfections as a BB cream should. The issue.....it slides all over the place. Just does not stay put, at all. I might add that I am 41 and this review is written during winter. While my skin does tend towards oiliness, I think this is only suited to those with much, much drier skin.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Too oily for my skin. The medium is also too dark.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Silver, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Blue
I wanted to try a BB and this is my first one, first time wearing it. I haven’t worn it enough yet to know whether it breaks me out or not. L’Oreal as a drugstore brand and my skin have gotten along very well together over the (many) years. The claims on the box attracted me…“evens, illuminates, perfects, moisturizes and corrects…all in one step”. I paid $16.99 at Walgreens. I like the illuminating quality, and I didn’t find the texture too thick at all. It was just right, not thick like cream and not runny like a liquid. It goes on sheerly but seems to give good coverage. The strong odor goes away in a few minutes. I have dry skin, especially in winter, and I did not find this too oily at all. So far, so good. The problem is the color: it is too peachy for my skin, and I bought it in Light. Even though the peachy tint on my face does not look bad - it's not orange at least - I prefer a true neutral match with no added pink or peach. I feel like I look too *made up* in this color. I may have to look for a colorless BB. Oh, and the spf is only 15, which means in summer I would have to use additional sun screen underneath. I gave it 3 stars as an overall rating, but I am going to return this. I know I won't wear this peachy color, I feel too self conscious in it.

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.
Age: 56 & Over Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
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.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Cool Hair: Brunette, Straight, Coarse Eyes: Hazel
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.
