I purchased the Skin Perfection BB cream 5 in 1 after reading the positive reviews that the product has gained.

The cream is very light, it blends well and matches exactly my complexion which is quite fair while BBs usually have an orange undertone that looks complete off on my skin.
On the other hand, it offers neither any kind of vividness to my complexion nor any coverage at all. After few hours, It leaves a kind of glitter that shines and looks quite unnatural.
I have very dry skin and I cannot say that offered satisfied amount of hydration... and I surely needed my day cream as well.

All in all, I wouldn't buy it again as I cannot see what could offer me more than my day cream and a light make-up or a tinted sunblock.

Very decent product. It offers fairly good coverage and holds up ok throughout the day (even when I don't settle it with powder). Oil control is fine and it never gave me breakouts.

I just don't find the formula moisturizing at all and could never wear it without putting moisturizer on first. And I have oily skin - though sensitive and sometimes dry, to be honest. But maybe the Brazilian version of this has a different, drier formula.

Consistency is liquidy and foundation-like, but it spreads rather effortless and provides a natural finish. Not too dewy and not really matte either.

Anyway, as nice as it is, I fail to see the difference between this and a regular low-medium coverage foundation. Except maybe for the SPF (which some foundations do have). Nothing wrong with that, but that's not what the procuct claims. I would expect a BB Cream to be an all-in-one (or 5-in-1) product and not to *have* to wear a moisturizer underneath it.

It is fragranced, but lightly, and the smell doesn't really irritate my sensitive skin or nose, though I would prefer it to be fragrance-free.

I'm normally something between NC30/35 and then Medium is a good match. I'm now a solid NC30 and it's a tad bit dark. Anyway I like it and will repurchase until I find something better.

I really love this!
First off, i'm really fair (not the palest of them all, but up there. Always the lightest shade of every foundation range-and even that is often too dark for me!) Mac NC/NW 20 to give you an idea. Every bb/cc cream i've ever tried was half a shade darker than it should. But this one blends into my skin PERFECTLY without making me look ghost-pale. It's just the right shade. UNDETECTABLE on my skin! The undertone is pretty neutral i'd say.
I apply it with fingers.
The consistency is very creamy. Even though i have oily skin i avoid matte foundations because they make me look tired and my skin looks older. This is a dewy consistency, but NOT too dewy-if that makes any sense. It doesn't make me look oily! I don't apply a moisturiser before, cause this gets the job done. I do apply powder on the T-zone.
The coverage is better than i expected! It won't cover everything, but it does even out the skintone-unlike other bb/cc creams that have no coverage at all. I apply this all over and use concealer on spots and discolorations.
It has a decent SPF which is a plus.
Overall i really like this and I would really recommend it, especially if you are fair and you're looking for an every day bb cream to even out your skin tone, make you look fresh and at a good price!

I really like this BB cream! I was previously using the garnier one, which I found a bit orangey and quite heavy. I picked this one at random as unfortunately due to the packaging you cant see the colour.

I have had severe acne for a long time that has left a lot of Hyperpigmentation and some scarring. I dont like to wear lots of heavy makeup as I feel the scars look worse and I prefer a lighter look, however I do need coverage for my marks.

Heres what I found with this product. It is a lovely creamy texture with a fresh scent that goes into the skin very easily (I have been putting a bit of suncream on parts of my face due to photosensitivity caused by accutane and still goes on well).I find the tone is lighter than some other BB creams, and is good for light olive tones - I really think finding your right colour is key to BB or CC creams. It gives you a nice glow, a little sheeny which I quite like - I then use a small amount of mineral foundation on a couple of problem areas and thats it, I look close to flawless! This isnt going to give full coverage like foundation but if your skin just needs evening out its perfect. I have found it to last quite well, I have been using it during some warm weather and it hasnt sweated off or gone shiny.

Ive used this 1 week and my skin feels softer and I havent had any new breakouts!

Decided to buy a BB cream to have a lighter coverage option for day to day errand runnings, school etc. and this one was half price at the time. The colour is perfect for my skin tone and it feels lovely on my face, my skin feels in slightly better condition over time but nothing really noticeable. The smell of the product is fresh and slightly floral? The product seemed to last quite a while but I only tend to use this cream for "lazy" days! Only downside is that the coverage is extremely light compared to a foundation.

this is a really nice mid range bb cream. it has a nice velvety texture and is easy and quick to apply. i use the shade fair and it blends into my very pale skin beautifully. it takes a little while to dry in but feels light and airy on skin and does not feel mask like at all. it is great for every day use. the packaging is a nice big tube and you don't have to use a lot to get nice even coverage. i have combination skin prone to break outs and my skin has looked positively luminous since using this. i have been complemented on how flawless my face looks whilst using it which is a big plus!

I have a love-hate relationsship with this one. The colour match my skin perfectly and the coverage is just what I want (light-medium).
The "hate" part is the application. It took me a week to figure out how to apply it. You can't use either a beauty blender or any kind of brush, it will crumble if you do. Seriously. You have to apply it with your fingers in circular motions, do NOT pat your skin afterwards.
After this it's best to let it dry for about 5-10 minutes.

Look it up on youtube, that's my advice.
If you apply it correctly it really looks amazing the whole day =)
