Love this BB Cream. I got this in the Dore color. I was confused when they only offered a couple color options, but I didn't realize the color changes to match your skin tone. The Dore is for medium-tan skin, I'm currently NC35 Mac color, and usually a litter darker in the summer. The color blended really well and matched my skin tone. Has light-medium coverage, and doesn't make me oily or break out. I usually don't wear any foundation, just cover up on a few spots on my face because I haven't been able to find a foundation/BB cream that doesn't break me out. I have very sensitive skin and it reacts to EVERYTHING. It's quite oily as well. This BB cream lasts most of the day. I only have to blot my T-zone once, which is pretty good. I usually have to blot every hour with other products I tried. This makes your skin look natural and doesn't feel heavy on. Will definitely repurchase and recommend!

Best BB CREAM EVER! Alright, okay, the best that I`ve tried so far. This Erborian bb cream was always on my radar, seeing as I bought my mother one before I got it for myself. This was mostly because in recent months, bb cream obsession died out for a bit, I developed some mild rosacea and acne scars and I figured that bb creams just couldn`t give me enough coverage in a nutshell. That and most of them seemed to have a very dewy finish which is not the best option for me in a long run, especially during summer. Oh, I`m satisfied with this product. It has enough buildable coverage that even my most persistent acne scars disappeared when I put this on. And the finish just looks like skin. It blurs pores, smells nice, covers my problem areas, doesn`t get too shiny and I touched up only once during the day. Granted, I do use their mattifying primer in a purple packaging and these two are my dream team.
- buildable coverage
- blurs pores
- nice smell
- doesn`t fade throughout the day
- the only con for me really is the price as I think that it could be cheaper
- other potential worry is for an oily skin person, as I`m not sure how this would last, I`m a combo girl
- also I don`t know if I can really deduct points for shade range as this is a , I think, Korean brand, but the darkest shade suits light medium skintones so keep that in mind.

First time I've ever used a CC cream and absolutely love it. Gives my skin such a fresh smooth young look - not caked with make up. I'm hooked on this now, and also on the BB cream. You can buy it from the Erborian web site in the UK.

I am on my third tube of this, I love, love, love it. It covers what it needs to cover, doesn't dry out my skin and looks super natural. I actually use it on top of the CC Crème from Erborian. I am extra pale with dry skin and this is perfect.

If you are fair or pale, and especially if you are on the warm/yellow side, and especially again if you are looking for good coverage, I'd skip this. I'm fair-to-light, neutral-cool, and the lightest shade (Clair) is a touch too dark (though I'm picky) and a bit muddy brown-pink. (When I first applied it, it looked quite brown, but then after a few minutes it became less brownish.)

The coverage is pretty sheer, so if the color is off it doesn't matter as much as with foundation, but you'll need concealer even for minor blemishes. It seems like a Dr. Jart - lite to me. Less coverage than Dr. Jart and Missha and Clinique CC Cream, and maybe about the same coverage as Dior Nude BB Cream.

Nice texture and it blends well. But there are so many other BB/CC creams out there that seem to offer more; I can't think of anything particularly special about this one, at least in the light shade.

I so didn't want to like this product as it's not cheap - unfortunately I love it! I bought the sample size in Dore and Nude as I currently have a slight tan ( normally NW20). This product is amazing & I don't know how it works but it does. I apply it with my fingertips and achieve a light-medium coverage which simply makes my skin look like skin but better. I allow it to soak in then add translucent powder (RCMA) and bang I now have a good medium coverage which just makes my skin look amazing. The powder does lift the colour thus it suits my NW20 skin perfectly. I have super oily skin (thanks peri menopause) but after 8 hours my skin just looks glowing (yes it's oily but doesn't look it); I blot it with papers and that's me good for 12-13 hours! Added to this my skin likes it. I've had problems with breakouts recently but since using this my skin is behaving beautifully. I really can't fault this BB cream except the price. Having said that you only need a pea size amount for your whole face and wow is it quick to apply for perfection. I've tried the CC cream in the same way and whilst it's good and performs in much the same manner I prefer the extra coverage the BB cream gives you. Obviously this is my experience and I recommend the sample size first, but I think I've found my HG!

It doesn't get cakey, it doesn't oxidise and makes my skin look great.... However, I felt it being very heavy an dense on the skin. Eventually, I ended up with a break out. My skin usually doesn't go well with sunscreen, so that was probably why. But, overall, the product did't wowed me. It just seemed like yet another BB cream without any distinct feature to justify the hefty price tag.

Really wanted to like this but then I found out that they are an especially brutal brand to animals. I will not support them anymore.

This is actually 5 in 1 rather than posted 3in 1 but package in picture shows the 5 I n1 so I think it is just an error. I purchased this from Sephora during the Rogue discount. I really desire a B.B. Cream or CC cream for easy daily wear when I don’t want a lot of makeup. I’ve tried so many of these products over the years, high end to drugstore. Rarely can I find a color match. I am light and cool toned. IT Cosmetics CC cream in fair is too light and too yellow and the color light matches perfectly until it oxidizes into an orange disaster on my skin. Clinique CC Cream exact same. Most Department store brands don’t even make a light and cool enough shade so I had given up.
I stumbled on a review of this and decided to order it with the thought I’d likely be returning.
This has been a wonderful surprise! When I first begin applying, it looks slightly grey but as soon as product is blended it is a perfect match. My color is lightest one, Claire I believe. This offers light to medium coverage. I wear my regular moisturizer and sunscreen underneath. This does not cling to dry patches, evens out skin tone and provides a nice skin type finish. I can layer a second coat in areas I want a bit more coverage and do not need to set with powder. I work in the surgical environment and place and remove a mask on my face multiple times daily and this product held up! Towards the end of an 8 hour shift this had mostly worn off, however it wears off in the best way of any product I’ve ever used. It just gradually fades, no seperating, no areas where product has migrated or is patchy.
I tested all week before writing this review and must say I am pleasantly surprised by this product! This will likely be my summer go to product and I can see wearing this whenever I am not in the mood for foundation.
I totally recommend this product for anyone with normal to dry skin (I’m dry) who has struggled to find a B.B. Cream that is cool toned enough, doesn’t oxidize at all and wears wonderfully. It also has SPF 20 which is an added bonus though not adequate enough on its own.
Very happy!

To me, this is an HG product. This covers all the bases of what a great BB cream should be. I'm about an NC 30-35 and the color Dore is perfect. I don't have great skin by any means- hyperpigmentation, acne scars on cheeks, dehydrated skin, very clog prone and overall, just blah. This BB cream is medium coverage. It's a creamy texture and I usually use a sponge to pat into skin and it works magic, folks. Seriously. I feel pretty confident when I wear this. Albeit, my scars are probably still visible but it doesn't bother me as much. I have combo oily skin. I do get a little shiny but it's nothing huge. Let's just say, it gives me a dewy look after a few hours. It covers pores pretty well and it gives that my skin but better look. I love the SPF factor and the skin loving ingredients. I have skin that rejects a lot of products because it rather breaks me out, makes me itchy or just dry. This does neither of those things. I like the fact that it's lightweight feeling and I hardly feel anything. There is barely any oxidation that I can detect. It stays true to its color til the end of the day. I tend to venture out and try other BB creams and tinted moisturizers, but I tell you, I keep coming back to this, which is why I feel like it's my HG. And we all know how hard it is to find an HG product in our routine. I've been using this for over a little 3 months and I do feel like my skin texture has improved.I don't know what magic voodoo is in this, but i will keep at it. It truly works wonders.

Update 3/19: I tried the IT Cosmetics CC cream and guess what? I'm going back to my Erborian bb cream. The IT CC cream really emphasized my pores and texture whereas the Erborian did none of that and it stayed matte longer. Smh... Dunno why i stray...
