This was recommended to me by a friend but did NOT work for me. It provided no coverage and I broke out horribly. Even when I used my regular foundation over top, it left me shiny. Would not repurchase

The shade light-medium is a little too light for me but i can make it work. It seems to be lighter or just a different tone than the cc cream if anyone is wondering. The cc cream color matches me better and wears better on me. This bb cream separates/pools after awhile and I get little lines of concentrated bb color. i can reblend it when i notice but it looks pretty weird when it happens. I have both dry and oily areas on my face and this pools up in the oily areas. I do not have extremely oily skin however. If you have slightly oily skin i would try the cc cream instead.

I am not certain if this product is beneficial for my skin but it has some moisturizing effect that can help my skin condition. Not sure if the oily gals would enjoy this product because it can get greasy after a couple of hours but here is the solution for this problem: wear a primer and apply PF BB Powder. It stays on till you wash it off. The Medium shade works well for my neutral skin tone. I think the price is too high but I got this in sale. If you get a deal on two items in this brand, try this. It is worth it.

If I wanted a BB Cream, this is the one I would be reaching for. It is light weight, good coverage, doesn't feel cakey or break me out, the only con is the scent. It's not really noticeable about 5 minutes after application but it's got this strange scent to it that I don't really care for but it's nothing that is unbearable by any means. Another thing is there is not enough shades! I feel like more people would be able to use this if they came out with more shades and gave a variety of different undertones. Other than those two things they would've received a 5/5! Great product!

No competition, my favorite BB cream I've tried. It is fabulous! I got it in light. It still seemed dark to me... I was worried that I was going to end up looking too orange... but once I got it on and blended it out... gorgeous! It matches me really well, actually! It has a lovely finish... not too matte, not too dewy. And it has really good coverage, especially for a BB! I put a LITTLE bit of powder on my T zone and I'm good. It lasts all day on me and stays looking nice. No noticeable oxidation on me. I love it! It has no fragrance, which is fantastic because I'm really sensitive to that. It leaves my skin soft and smooth and happy. Would totally recommend it!

I'm not a big BB cream user, so I don't have much to compare this product to. I've used MAC studio fix power with primer for years and that's been enough, but I wanted something with a little more coverage for nights out. I did a lot of research and this product seemed like the right one for me.

The coverage on this BB cream is perfect for me, it covers all of the redness and makes an even base while letting a few freckles peek through. I bought the lightest shade which worked for the first little while. After a few months I noticed the product had almost seemed to oxidize in the tube and came out darker/more orange. I'm really sad about this because I LOVE the smooth even coverage it gives my skin (airbrushed/flawless look) but it's too dark for me now. I can't keep buying a new tube every few months after the product goes funky.

I'm an oily skinned gal and this with Smashbox primer lasted exceptionally well for an 8-5 workday with one blotting paper at lunch. It looks more "dewy" than "oil slick". The foundation itself was still on at the end of the day.

Along with the oxidation, I noticed that I started to get a few red bumps on my cheeks and forehead after wearing it for a week straight once. I typically never breakout from products so that was a bummer. Im looking for a different BB cream to replace this, but I will probably go back to it if I manage to get a tan.

I am a makeup junkie. You name it, I've tried. Most of the makeup I buy are from high end brands from Sephora. I always think high end is always better than drugstore, the two don't compare. Well this product is definitely the exception. No matter which bb cream I've used both from drugstores and from Sephora, this knocks them out of the park. It's got great coverage! On regular days, I only use this to even out my skintone, and on more special days I use this as a base, layer some light foundation (I like Urban Decay's Naked Skin because it is light at works well with this product to give you that full coverage yet airbrushed look) and MAYBE some concealer if I really need it. It's the perfect base! The only reason I knocked off a lippie was due to both the way it oxidizes and the limited color selection. I am a light medium skintone and bought the light/medium when I first started using it. After a couple of hours, it would oxidize to a bit of an orangy color. I have now found that I need to mix the regular light/medium bb cream and the light Organic bb cream to have the perfect balance of color with no oxidation. I love this stuff. I won't be buying any other bb creams because nothing so far has compared this. Definitely my HG :)

There aren't enough colors to choose from. I'm a medium tone and the light medium is WAY too dark. It's also very greasy and not good as a light wear foundation (as bb cream should be).

Don't like that the packaging doesn't tell you the ingredients or if there's spf in the Super BB Cream. Some BB creams out there have Titanium Dioxide which irritated my eyes. Super in this case meant full coverage. It applies just like a foundation. Rarely have to use foundation with it, simple concealer here and there. The light/medium still is a bit tan for my skin, a better summer choice for tanning. It may almost be too heavy for my oily/combo skin, constantly needing a blotting sheet for my T-zone. Has been doing ok with the drier weather, but the color is off.

Like Annabelle's BB cream over this one.
