On the bright side, this (i'd rather say tinted moisturizer to be more precise) bb cream with light coverage gives a nice glow that doesn't seem greasy and it looks almost like second skin.
Doesn't break out my sensitive combination skin.

The cons: the palest shade 001 is very pink (yellow toned skins will certainly notice it doesn't match their neck), too pricy (practically as expensive as the Nude foundation). lots of ALCOHOL.
It reeks of alcohol, dries out like alcohol does, bringing out all the flaky dry areas you didn't know you had. I exfoliate and moisturize regularly. This cakes and brings out every flake.
I have had similar experiences with alcohol in western bb creams, the asian bb creams never dry me out, illuminate giving a soft focus finish... yet clog my pores.
This, while noncomedogenic, doesn't come close to an asian bb cream in terms of blurring out imperfections or moisturizing. Also, asian formulas provide better coverage, no additional concealer needed. Nude bb cream cannot cover up acne or undereye circles.
The SPF is almost insultingly low for a bb cream. I felt insulted. SPF 10 in this day and age, Dior!!
Certainly won't repurchase because the alcohol makes my skin feel tight and it's a bit too pink for my coloring.
I expected this to be closer in shade to the Nude liquid foundation and certainly not so drying. The Nude liquid contains alcohol as well but seems to be a bit more moisturizing.
So perhaps this would work on oilier skins with pink undertones and no significant imperfections that would require stealthier concealing.

A pity, my hopes were high.

This is the first and only BB cream I have tried. I consider it as close to the perfect foundation-type product as is humanly possible! I buy the lightest shade because I am relatively fair. It looks almost like white paint as you're applying it, but as soon as it dries--perfection. Light, matte, weightless coverage that is easily applied and blended with the fingers. I am a lazy person, and this has put foundation back into my daily beauty routine because it's so easy.

ETA: I have a love-hate relationship with any kind of liquid foundation. Over time, I have gravitated back to powders. The main problem was that if I blew my nose, the cream would come off and I couldn't reapply until I went home, whereas I can carry a powder foundation compact with me. Also, if I get sweaty, I feel like this product makes it look extra shiny/beady/bad. Whereas with a powder foundation, I can just go to the restroom, blot off the moisture, and reapply.

I still love this BB cream, but it is too light for me to wear when I have a tan...which I did for most of the year.

Best thing ever!!!! I now keep my foundation for special occasions, and use this for everyday purposes, I think it gives a very natural, dewy look and this is exactly what I want my skin to look like in daylight. i put it on and top it up with loose powder and a little bit of blush. the results are amazing. this bb creme gives just the right coverage for a polished, everyday look !

EDIT: MAJORRRRR EDIT. Unfortunately, it does oxidise alooooot and makes my skin break out terribly. I cannot keep on using it. I've noticed my skin becoming terrible and I'm hating that fact, especially that I've spent months religiously maintaining my skin in order to make dark spots and scarce acne spots completely disappear.

Bought this for 34 euros in shade 02 which is perfect for my fair skin. Goes on smoothly and leaves a flawless finish when topped with loose powder- Lasts all day (8am til 8pm). Great packaging so no spills. Feels comfortable on my face and only a small amount is needed to cover the whole face so it should last for quite a long time. Will probably wear under a stronger sunscreen in Summer as 10 spf is very low but better than nothing. I prefer to wear it over a good moisturizer as it tends to glide on better plus my 47 year old skin is not as oily as it used to be.

This is an excellent alternative to tinted moisturiser for those with oily or combination skin. I've been using Becca's Luminous Skin Colour TM for a few years, but was unhappy with the amount of coverage and the fact that it left me looking greasy and generally awful by the end of my 10 hour workday. This product compares VERY favorably in both coverage and length of wear. The Becca product never held up longer than 5 or 6 hours. Dior looks good twice as long! It covers the redness around my nose completely, it doesn't oxidise or settle, and I think most folks will only need a little concealer under the eyes to get a great look.

The consistency (lots of silicones) is almost like a liquid to powder foundation and is easy to apply but isn't greasy. I have terribly reactive skin and rosacea and haven't found it irritating yet. Concealer and cream blush blend easily and flawlessly over this. Once set with powder, the result is not a "no makeup" look but, polished, not heavy.

I'm not big on BB creams because (for the most part) I feel they are just glorified tinted moisturizers and foundations. However, I heard this one was physical only sunscreen (which is a HUGE plus for me) so I decided to give it a try.

This only comes in 4 shades. I swatched the two palest on my hand at Sephora. The lightest shade (001 Light) is VERY pale and very pink-- I'd say around NW10. The next shade (002 Fair) is around NC15-20 but not super yellow. I chose that one and it's a pretty good match for me.

This is light to medium coverage with a satin finish. It's about a step up (coverage wise) from a tinted moisturizer. This wears extremely well on my combo oily skin. There have been days I've applied it around 6 am and it still looked good around 8 pm. I was very impressed with the wear time of this.

Well, I am impressed.
I am ususally not a fan of BB creams - all those I have tried were either too sheer, too greasy, too staining, too useless for any of my needs. I have dark spots to hide and I need coverage, hence BB creams never made the deal for me.
However, I stumbled across the Dior BB cream - got a sample in shade 02 (I am NC15-20) - and tried it for three days in a row.
I like it!
Well, truth to be said, this is not your average BB cream. It is FAR more pigmented. Less than a foundation but more than a BB cream. Let's say it's halfway between a founbdation and a BB cream (or a foundation with a sheer to medium coverage)
I loved the coverage, that was not completely opaque for my needs but I adjusted it with some concealer on some small areas and the result was more than acceptable.
It was super natural and very luminous!! I set w/ some loose powder, two swipes of bronzer, usual routine....
My face was glowing.
It will not keep your face mat all day long as Dior Forever foundation, but in wnter, when T-zone is not a bother, this BB cream will do its job, leaving you natural and glowy.
I really loved the result. I am prone to buy an entire tube...
Give it a try, you might be surprised as I was.

I loved the previous Dior Nude foundation, and when I ran out I went back to repurchase, but somehow the new version is different and I was not convinced by the colours. So instead, I decided to purchase the brand new BB Creme. I have been wearing it for a week or so and so far I like it. No pore clogging or breakouts whatsoever, coverage falls between sheer and medium and lasts reasonably for about 8 hours. I don't get too oily from it either and it is light and comfortable to wear. It oxidises/darkens a bit after about 15-20 minutes on, but the colour is not unpleasant, especially since it is early February and my skin is deadly pale. I have it in 2 and I am around NC20-25, LM Nude, Dior 020 or 021. Another great product from this range. One lippy off though for including so much alcohol in the formulation.

Tried this on the back of my hand in store and loved it. Bought it. Went home and put on my face and my heart sank. Of all the BB creams I have this one was the heaviest and driest. I thought BB creams were meant to look natural and sheer? Not this one. Reminded me very much of the By Terry face glow. Highlighted all my pores and dry patches. Wish I could return it.

This one left me unimpressed. I've tried the Nude foundations and they're OK, but I expect BB creams to be extremely smooth (hence the name: Blemish Balm, not cream, not liquid). This is just a foundation in a very light formula that sits on my skin without actually blend into it the way other BBs do. I notice a very fine net of tiny particles sitting around my lines and wherever m skin is not perfect (dry patches, for example).
It's quite deceiving, because there are so many BBs at a very cheap price (my best bet so far has been the Garnier one, and I'm the drugstore snob! - second comes the Erborian BB cream, which should be the very first BB cream to hit the Western market), and I don't see why Dior should ruin it's Nude line with a BB that's not up to other "real" BBs.
