I suppose I'm one of the few who enjoy this product. I like the scent and I think it does its job. I wear this under my foundation. It has never broke me out. It feels good on my skin and matches me perfectly. I will repurchase

I'm honestly not quite sure why all reviews on here are so negative. Other than the fact that because this product is not paraben free, so it could cause some people to break out. I have had this product for quite some time but forgot I had it since it's not something I would wear everyday. Usually I would go for a look with full coverage, meaning I use EVERYTHING; moisturizer, primer, concealer, foundation, setting powder. But the guy I'm with now appreciates a much more natural look. I however,am not so comfortable with not wearing makeup when leaving my house. It has actually given me a lot of anxiety. This bb cream is a great compromise. BB cream's have never really been for me, until this one. It was actually given to me. I always thought Olay stuck to doing bath and body type products. And I'm always skeptical to try a product from a brand that doesn't usually make products of such. Although I never really researched whether or not Olay has many products like it, I never remember noticing any at the store. Anyways, this BB cream has an amazing smell, spf 15, and buildable coverage. After applying it all sorts of ways I recommend a sponge, like a beauty blender (mine is just generic but still does the job). This product is great for when you're fed up with doing your full beauty routine everyday but still uncomfortable leaving the house without something on, the beach, the pool, anywhere! (: If nothing else I would definitely recommend as a back up. The coverage is not so great but definitely buildable.

I always wear a sunscreen and noticed my skin was looking tired out it being winter here (New Zealand). I only wear this at home and use my normal foundation when out. What I like, it does even out my skin and it looks more presentable. It applies easily. The colour is fairly good but mind the jaw line. I still have to use my regular eye concealer though. What I do not like, it does not feel particularly moisturising. It can feel a bit itchy. I will keep using, but as I said it is not perfect but as it is just for being around the house, I am happy with it. My skin is dry now, so I do not find it oily.

This retailed for just about $18 at my local Shoppers, however i got it on sale for $7 and i am SO glad that that was all of the money i spent on it, because it was a total waste.
My skin is oily/ combo right now, i have exceptionally clear skin and slightly darker under eyes, and when this is applied to my face i look TERRIBLE!
I tired many different times to like this BB cream, alone, under foundation,applying with hands,brush,beauty blender etc and nothing has worked, and at first gave me numerous breakouts in uncommon areas of my face. The only positive thing i have to say is that it matched my skin color well. Also, it felt very tacky and damp after applied.
Lucky i purchased this on sale!

I found this to be a waste of time, heavily scented, moisturizer on top of my regular moisturizer equals oily face all day long. This product is also NOT paraben free which can contribute to break outs. While I don't look for significant coverage in a BB cream, this one has little to none. Packaging makes it easy to use, and it's pretty inexpensive but I guess you get what you pay for and in this case I'm glad I didn't pay a lot because I tossed it pretty quickly. If you have flawless skin and looking for a really sheer tinted moisturizer this isn't a bad choice.

No coverage... it is heavily scented and it breaks my face out every single time I wear it. I was so disappointed

Awful. Dries out my face but looks oily. I like the packaging and you get a ton of product but it literally doesn't do anything. Don't buy!

BOO! This cream is clumpy, and the colors mean you either have to be ghost white or tan as HECK! So impossible to pick the right shade, does not blend well. Terrible drugstore price. Unsettling on skin, as in drying yet you can still feel wet makeup upon your face. Gross! Don't buy this, please!

This has no effect on my skin. It doesn't harm it but it doesn't enhance it. I don't feel moisturized but I don't feel dry. It doesn't look like I've got anything on at all. It's highly fragranced (to me it smells like synthetic watermelon) and once that dries down I just smell sunscreen. Don't waste your money.
