I LOVE this stuff. Seriously, instantly flawless skin, but weightless coverage. Cannot recommend this enough.

This and Oilatum are my moisturising bath products of choice. Aveeno out performs the Oilatum, moisture-wise, and feels that much nicer on the skin. I don't get too much greasiness, but for the most part the skin on my body is dry and can get itchy and sensitive because of it. This helps a lot.

This is one of the best BB creams out there. It is a creamy liquid which dries to a satin/ matte finish. Very flattering. Offers good coverage for a BB.Not at all greasy but I do use powder over this as I always do, with any BB or foundation.Also fragrance free , a must in my book.Love the fact that it is a mineral sunscreen. If you experience stinging eyes with sunscreens (as I do ) stick to minerals like titanium dioxide or zinc oxide,far less irritating than the chemical sunscreens.The only downside is there are only two colours available so for some it will be impossible to get a colour match. I wear the lightest colour and it's fine on my NW 15-20 complexion.Highly recommended.

I like the packaging and the fact that it applies smoothly, and matches my skin tone perfectly. Very easy to blend, I don't however think it covers good. I will continue to use this until it runs out and then I'll be back on my hunt to try a different BB cream.

I use this everyday, it's that good! Unfortunately I can only use it in the Spring and Summer bc the Light/Medium is too dark for me during the colder months. It has a physical SPF of 30, provides very nice coverage, is moisturizing, and my skin looks better the more I wear it.

So I have only been using this for a short time but I must say I love it. I used the Garnier BB cream which was awful so after I read the reviews on this I decided to try it. Incredible! I have true acne, not just a breakout now and then, a break out all the time and with this my skin looks amazing. Never using anything else.

I just loved it, the way it glides on skin, coverage and color. I spent several hundreds of dollars on BB creams already, this might be the one, I like also that it has mineral SPF

I was really hoping that this would be a dupe for the Healthy Wear tinted moisturizer (HG for me) - which seems to be in the process of being discontinued where I live - but it's not.
Color match is pretty good - PF is notorious for not having light/fair colors available and it's sheer enough to blend out into my jawline and not be a noticeable color mismatch.
It's nice and thick, which I like. I'd say it moisturizes medium-well, as my face doesn't get oily but doesn't look dewy either.
Sheer coverage, and I wear it as an additional layer under foundation for some added sunscreen (I use regular sunscreen, too) in the morning and reapply after work for my commute home.
It's not clogged me or broken me out, and I have very, very sensitive skin and was acne-prone until I started using coconut oil as a cleanser.

I bought this at Kmart. I never looked at reviews or researched further prior to buying it. I took a risk and got it for $12.99..I've been using this for 3 weeks now and I like it. Nice coverage. It seems you don't need to moisturize b4 putting it on, but I have not tried applying it w/o moisturizer. It has SPF 30 so I use a setting powder. The only bad thing about this BB is that there's not much of a shade selection. there's only 3 to be exact. other than that I would buy this again.

First Review EVER!!!! But I had to share with others about this miracle find. I have found my HG bb cream and It is great for sensitive (everything makes me red), Acne prone (everything breaks me out) and dry/oily combination (some spots dry & some spots oily) problematic skin. I apply with my angled/flat top brush (bare minerals precision brush) and blends well. I live in Miami and it doesnt melt off plus has suncreens. It last All day and rinse off very easily. Note: My skin feels softer after using this and feels smooth after I rinse this off, this never happened with Jane Iredale dream tint. I used to use Jane Iredale's makeup line and now I can save my money. I bought the powder and concealer and it woks better than my Jane Iredale makeup. I love this stuff.

Not for fair skinned people. Again. This is like the 6 or 7th bb I've tried. It *will* work for oilier skinned people and has pretty good coverage. Love the feel of the stuff, actually. But, it oxidized kind of orange right away AND was too dark to begin with. I find myself buying the second to lightest foundation colors of whatever kind I buy, and that usually matches very well. BB creams, on the other hand, I need the lightest shade offered. The lightest shade isn't quite light enough. So far, rimmel has been the only inexpensive BB that has worked even a little for me. Other than that, I have to spend 40 bucks or more a tube, which is just too much to spend on BB cream in my opinion. Smashbox is my HG bb, but just too expensive.

I was pleased to find that this lived up to its reviews! I was previously using Neutrogena's tinted moisturizer with very good results, but was looking for something with more coverage. One of my jobs keeps me outside and I need something with SPF that will stay in place, through sweat and the occasional rain shower, for 12 hours or more. I've used this product for a few days and took it on a real test run- last night to an outdoor concert in very humid pre-thunderstorm air, and today at work.
This BB cream has excellent coverage. The light/medium color works very well on my tanned but fair skin and I anticipate it will continue to work throughout the summer. I was able to forego under-eye concealer today- a very big deal since my dark circles look like someone socked me in the eye! It goes on well, but feels faintly tacky to the touch up to about half an hour after. I found it to have a fairly matte finish, but I did have a little shine on my T-zone last night that I touched up with powder- no problem.
It has excellent "stickability" and stayed on my face through humidity last night and sweat and rain today, but removed easily with cleanser. Thus far, I've had no problems with clogged pores (and I am prone to them!) but have instead found that the cream leaves my skin feeling soft and well moisturized by the time I take it off.
The one negative I have to report is that I don't find it particularly blendable; I have problems with this anyway, since I don't tan evenly, but while the color was a good match to the skin on my face, there was apparently a pretty obvious orange line under my jaw (as per my sister, as diplomatically as possible... not!) despite blending as I would have usually. I'm willing to find a way around that since I like the rest of the product so much. It does exactly what I want it to do- SPF, moisturizer, and great longer-term coverage.

I seriously can't believe I liked this stuff. I am still in shock. I bought it because it was $6 off at CVS and I thought I'd put in one last ditch effort to find an inexpensive BB cream since I'm sick of the sunscreen and foundation routine. My skin is super picky. It is oily and very breakout prone. This did everything that I have wanted a BB cream to do, but none ever did: It covered well, didn't make me shiny, hasn't broken me out, and actually stayed put all day on my oily skin! In addition, it has titanium and zinc blockers instead of the yucky chemicals that make me break out. Wow. What a find!

This is a conversation I had with my boyfriend while wearing physicians formula super BB cream light/medium:
Me: Can you get me a make up removing wipe?
Him: Do you even have on make up?
Me: Yes, its bb cream. Basically suppose to blurr my pimples
Him: That is exactly what it does. I can't see them unless I get really close to your face.

Out of all the BB creams i've tried, so far this is my favorite.
It applies easily and it just looks so clean on my skin. It doesn't even feel thick or greasy. The coverage is good and it lasts all day. It was great on my oily skin coz' it didn't made me look shiny. A little powder retouch is all you need within the day.
I really like this stuff!

I purchased this BB cream due to its ingredients. I have sensitive skin (rosacea) and turn red instantly if my skin does not agree with what I put on it. I bought the light-medium. It blended nicely into the skin, and had a light to medium coverage with a satin-like finish. My only concern was that it was darker than I anticipated. I lightly dusted my face with BE mineral veil and it lightened my face. I worked an 11 hour day and when I got home from work, my make up was still in place! I could not believe it. I live in sub-tropical climate. When I washed my face, it was not red at all. Amazing. Great purchase for me...recommended.

LOVE! i have lt/med asian skin tone super finicky and sensitive reacts to almost everything evn most natural formulas. glowing but not in a bad chunky unnatural way like the garner versions. also not greasy like the garner original or dry stingy and irritating like the oi free one. the only draw bak is the best shade for me is to mix equal parts of the l/t med with the med/dark but i got them at kmart 40% off so two 4 one practically. when i want a little less color i mix 2 to one ratio and when i want a more matte effect i mix half a pump of cover girl outlast in med beige with it ( which waswayyyy too drying ,flat and not pretty on its own,) use the dark on its own as a liquid bronzer top of forehead nose chin etc and now my face looks pretty much awesome everyday I'm so happy. foundations and bb creams are supposed to make ur skin look better not worse so up until now thats how i felt about everything i used! this with the flower beauty cream blush in rose a dren drone has made my routine uber quick ez and my skin looks glowy and near flawless ( I'm 42 so this is a blessing!)try it and don't give up because of the shade selection custom mixing is the way to go ...i got some tiny jars so i can always mix up fresh batches and stir it with a qtip with the end cut off super ez :}

Love this stuff. Great coverage for a BB Cream, as a comparison, I was using Revlon ColorStay daily, after finding this stuff & loving it, It has become my HG for daytime, now will only use colorstay at night.
Didn't break me out like Maybelline or Garnier.
Medium coverage, makes my skin look even & poreless !!! Love it.

with summer being right around the corner, i have been on a quest to find a perfect bb cream which is affordable, readily available and gives a decent amount of coverage.
having said that, i recently picked up the physician's formula super bb cream based on youtube & mua reviews. recently, it seems like a lot of drugstore brands have been releasing "bb creams" - which imo, are more like tinted moisturizers. the korean bb creams tend to act more as a skincare agent in helping your skin in different aspects (i.e. whitening). however, with that said, i don't feel as though the drugstore brand bb creams do much other than provide you with light coverage and sometimes provide spf.
but even with all of that in mind, my goal was to find a drugstore brand bb cream that would indeed provide a decent amount of coverage. plus, i needed something more affordable considering korean bb creams tend to be fairly expensive and often ends up costing more than a high-end foundation. plus, they are not readily available where i live so i have to order them online (plus pay for shipping).
anyways, on to the review! the super bb cream, to me, is just like a tinted moisturizer. though i will give it some credit for giving a good amount of coverage (light-medium, buildable). however, it did not completely cover up any blemishes or redness so i did have to use concealer. also, after application, it does feel slightly sticky (moreso a tacky feeling) on the skin which gives a dewy finish. most people with oily skin may or may not like this aspect of the bb cream. but for me, having very dry skin, i don't mind it. for those with oily skin, you may want to apply a light hand of setting powder over it.
i believe there are only 2 shades available and i purchased the light-medium. i am in between NC30-35 currently and the shade worked fine on me. if you are a definite NC35, it might be a little light. but i did notice that it blended into my skin well once it set for a few hours. lastly, lasting power is normal and i don't feel like it's a long-wearing bb cream. if anything, you may need to retouch later in the day. but for me, it held up a full work day of 8 hours. beyond that, you probably will want to reapply it.
overall, the super bb cream is probably one of the most bb creams out in the drugstore brand market now. it's a great, affordable bb cream that provides a good amount of coverage without feeling greasy. the price is on the higher side for a drugstore brand, but i think it's worth the money if you are in search of a decent drugstore brand bb cream. i think bb creams work best on people who have fairly normal skin with few problem areas because they aren't good in providing a lot of coverage. but they do work well for people with normal skin who just need a tad bit of coverage.

I really, really like this BB cream. It took me a couple of times to use just the right amount around my jawline (I could see the line the first couple of times I wore it) but I just lightened up a bit on the amount and now I am really happy. I have oily skin but this is def better than others I have used as far as not getting a greasy look after a few hours. I rate it the best of the ones I have used.
