I was excited about this BB cream! I bought it in the shade fair/light at Walmart for I think $12.99. I love Olay's products! But this BB cream was by far the worst one I have tried and I have tried quite a bit! First off, it has hardly any coverage at all, like you need about three layers of this to get decent coverage, it gets patchy after a while, and also oxidizes! The things I do like about this is the smell, the texture, and the packaging but that's about it!

I have tried many Korean BB creams and several US BB creams for my hyperpigmented skin
and I have to say I was sorely disappointed in this cream. It offered hardly any coverage. The ingredients look very promising, but it just spread out too thin on my face and I wondered if I was getting any sun protection, because I was getting very little coverage. It also made whatever I put on top of it fragment. In several hours, I was patchy. The feeling was very
loose and almost greasy on my skin and I didn't like that at all. My makeup didn't either because it tried to run off my face too! I just felt like I wanted to wash it off as soon as I put it on. I am sadly disappointed in the contents of this cream and I will not repurchase. I only like the very common squeeze tube it comes in.

I really wanted this product to blow me away but I am sorry to say I was very disappointed. I use the Olay classic face cream and it feels great so I figured I'd give this a shot. One thing I loved about it was the scent, so after my dislike of the product I gave it another try. It is pretty oily and doesn't exactly feel light on my face. The days following the couple of times I have used it I ended up breaking out. It is a little pricey so I'm sorry I wasted the money on it, I wont be buying it again.

I have never bought a BB Cream/Tinted moisturizer, so I got this product on a whim after hearing all the hype about "BB". I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now.
My skin is oily and acne-prone. I noticed at first that small bumps were appearing on my forehead, where I haven't had acne since I was I teenager. Then again, my skin isn't used to a daily moisturizer so I decided to take this experience with a grain of salt.
I do enjoy the moisturizing effects, the fresh smell, and minimal coverage. I've been trying to use less foundation and cover-up now that I'm in my mid-twenties... and really take care of it.
Since my skin is super oily, I do need to apply a powder afterwards (wouldn't leave the house otherwise!) I do like its moisturizing effects and its easy blending. However, for my acne-prone skin, I'm not sure I'd buy it again. I'd do more research. It's a mediocre product in my eyes.
I've always trusted Olay, and when I saw they were releasing a line targeted towards a "younger crowd", I was excited. I don't regret buying the product -- I'd just prefer that it was more of an apply-and-go rather than needing a powder afterwards... and a few hours later. If I don't wash it off at night, I wake up with a few minor whiteheads; which are manageable but still a bit of pain. I'll continue to use this BB Cream until it runs out, but in the future I'll be looking for one geared more towards oily/acne-prone skin like mine.

Just to clear the record I did some minor research on this before I bought it so I knew what to expect when I got it but I did buy it because I also heard it smells amazing! And if something smells good, no matter how crappy it is Im the type of person who'll buy it. Ive had this for about 5 days now and sometimes I wanna take it back and return it but I love the smell so Ive been toying around with making it work, its no good on its own, no coverage, I set it with physicians formula BB powder it was ok but I swear my skin looked like an orange peel finally I found something that worked I applied primer (khroma) than I applied a light layer of this and then i mixed it with some foundation (UD Naked) and set with Macs mineralize powder and it came out nice, mostly matte so yay for me I found a method that makes it work BUT I am worried about this particular product as I find it to be quite the chemical cocktail for the face for what it minimally is capable of its packed with a TON of ingredients. At the time I got this I was dealing with some major break outs and when I started using this they've been minimizing (drying out?) so thats one advantage but at the same time this tells me how drying this is so if you have this, use this by all means keep it away from your eye area!!!!! the hunt for a good drug store BB cream continues.....

Smells amazing!! I used it for two days! And I woke up with the worst breakout of my liiiiifee. Super depressing! I would think this product is better for people wit dry skin (?) it's really oily. I'm so disappointed that it's not for me. Pro is that it smells nice. Con - super oily - made me breakout and my pretty good skin look sooooo bad! :(

I just got this product the other day and have used it twice. My first reaction to this was that I loved it so much. But that was on a good skin day. It does blur SMALL imperfections, but not so much the bigger ones. I do have to set this, but I have oily skin. It does have a very strong scent, but I personally think it smells good. Compared to the Maybelline BB cream I would say this is great.
-Blurs small imperfections
-Evens skin tone
-feels nice and light on skin
-does a pretty good job on my undereye circles(they are horrible)
-Doesn't blur bigger imperfections
Again I think it smells nice, but some people hate scented things.

Meh... I bought this at Walmart to try my luck w/a US BB cream. It didn't break me out, and the scent doesn't bother me. I just feel like it didn't do anything for my skin. There is no coverage and even though I have dry patches it makes my skin olily. I should say that the only other BB I have used is the Skin 79 Gold for a BB cream. I LOVE how it makes my skin look and feel. Like many of the other reviewers I think there is a difference from the BB's in the US and the ones from overseas. I'm going to finish off this but would not repurchase. Will stay w/Skin 79.

I've been using this product for about two weeks now, though I only use it when I know I'm going to be in the sun. I started up an entirely new skin care regime and I now go without most of my makeup (the heavy foundation, the heavy powder, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara) and only wear a translucent powder and some mascara. Maybe. I thought this would be a good thing to use to get a little coverage and some protection from the sun at the same time.
I like this product -- for the first few hours wearing it. After that, I feel a bit dirty and oily. It still feels better than all the makeup I'm used to wearing, but I hate it when my face feels dirty.
In all, I will use this product, but I might not buy it again. I want to try other things as well until I find something my skin really loves.

So I'm running out of my NARS tinted moisturizer, which I really love, but I feel that I want something with a little less coverage for weekends. This gives no coverage at all and looks oily.

This is my first experience with a "BB cream". Honestly, this stuff is nothing special. It's basically a run-of-the-mill face lotion with only a smidge of SPF- it says in the directions to re-apply every two hours! Ain't nobody got time fo' dat. Lol... seriously, though, I'm bummed. The smell is fantastic, but that's about it. I was excited about trying a BB cream because of all the awesome benefits I've been hearing about. But as I said before, this is just an over-hyped face lotion.

I've been using this for a week and I really like it. I have really sensitive skin and have been using Olay's sensitive foaming cleanser and spf moisturizer for like a decade. This doesn't cover much but gives a healthy glow. I've been wearing it alone all week but last night I topped it with Laura Mercier mineral powder and it looked great- very natural. Overall this is a good tinted moisturizer. I'm not sure if it lives up to being a BB cream, but I've never tried another BB cream so this is all I know...

This is perfect for my oily skin. It has some coverage, and makes my skin so smooth. It smells amazing! I love the packaging. Its just kinda pricey.
Loreal BB: No SPF, not moisturizing
Garnier BB: Way too oily
Maybelline: Not moisturizing. No coverage
CoverGirl BB: Oily, no coverage

I saw this at Wal-Mart and I was so excited to try out this product! Very nice packaging and smells amazing! (if you want your face to smell that is). I got home and tried it and I loved it! But the next day when I reached for it, my face instantly got itchy...I thought I was just adjusting to the product but as the night went on I saw blotches of red on my face.
Let me tell you, I have NEVER broke out from a product like this before...it was horrible. Four days later, my skin is still red, blotchy and hurts! :(
don't buy this product :(

I originally have this a pretty good review... But I take it back This broke my face out soo bad. It took weeks to clear up completely, and my skin typically doesn't get many breakouts. My cheeks got very red and dry. They kind of burned and got a bumpy kind of rash. I will definitely not repurchase.

I bought the "Light to Medium" BB cream today to use with the Fresh Effects shine control face wash. My skin tone is like Jennifer Lopez' however, I am prone to light break-outs (my skin is combination and rarely 100% clear) so I am always looking for a good product that is oil free and isn't going to break me out or make my face shinier in my T-Zone while also keeping the areas around my jaw and lips moisturized.
I spotted the Olay BB cream at CVS for 12.99
I liked the packaging- It seems to be geared at a slightly younger age group (13-20?) I guess since most Olay products are geared towards Anti-aging, and the more sophisticated ladies, they decided to put this out. However, it could really be for any age.
I used the wash as directed, and then patted my face dry and used the BB cream right away while my pores were still open. When I squeezed some of the product out on the back of my hand it appeared lighter than I expected -however- once I begin to put it on my face it blended seamlessly. I saw a few other reviews stating that they felt that the texture of it was greasy, but in my opinion it was very smooth, light weight, and not greasy at all. I have tried Loreal's BB creme and it felt gritty- Olay's is much better.
It has a light scent which smells nice. It's not overpowering, but it is noticeable.
Now that it's dry and has set. It give my skin a light dewy look (without making it appear oily) My blemishes have not totally disappeared, but that isn't what I was expecting anyway as it is not full coverage. I feel that it's a good in between product to use daily. Maybe if you don't want to wear heavy make up every day or for work, this is perfect. OR it could serve as a primer before you add a more full coverage foundation, or powder. It's not cakey in the least. Very smooth and natural look. Even in horrible fluorescent lighting, you could easily get away with not even looking like you have make up on.
I'm definitely using this from now on!

I really liked this one as well. I have to say it's shocking, though, that there's only two shades and I was in this range. Like the first reviewer, I'm on the darker side of NC25 and this worked well. It's hydrating but not overly so. Again, like someone else said, dry skin like mine will will need a moisturizer. SPF 15 is adequate but on the low side. I'll update as I use more.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brown, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Blue
I like this. I use it in the fair to light though. The light medium is a little too dark. I knocked off one lippie because I was using Maybelline's BB cream and it seemed to cover better. But this has more product and better sun protection so I'm using it with some extra concealer and finish with Mineral Veil (I got a sample for Xmas). I'm pleased.
I haven't been using this for long and have decided I am going to go back to Maybelline's Dream Fresh. It has caused my to break out and it doesn't have much pigment. Doesn't blur imperfections like I would like it to.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Other Hair: Blond, Wavy Eyes: Blue
I really like this so far. It has SPF 15 with avobenzone for UVA protection, dimethicone to fill in pores and wrinkles, and has a nice matte (but not TOO) matte finish on my combination skin. It's hydrating like their Regenerist serum, but really dry skin will need a moisturizer with this.
It also has niacinamide, which has been a lifesaver for my irritated, flaky skin (from using a retinoid). It's the third ingredient, so I feel like this bb cream actually has skin care benefits for me. As a side note, when my skin was raw and irritated niacinamide stung at first, but after one week i noticed a major soothing effect. I had no stinging or irritation from this. It has fragrance, but its very subtle and pleasant.
I am on the darker side of NC20, and the light/medium shade is way too dark and yellow for me. I would say it would be perfect for an NC 30 or darker. It has no pink or peach undertones and no sparkles.
This has very sheer coverage, so I've switched to revlon's nearly naked foundation. The finish of this is a lot like a silicone primer.
You're getting 2.5 oz, so this is a great price since tm's are usually only 1 oz.
It seemed to cake up a little when I applied it next to an area I'd already applied it (where the side of my chin meets the edge of my cheek). I probably just need to apply faster.
Update: Exchanged for the fair/light and it's perfect. It'd definitely work for an NC15 to 20 IMO. Not pink or peach in tone. I still like this, but am still struggling with applying this quickly enough so that I don't have the patchiness problem.
