As someone who previously gave up on BB Creams as a whole, I finally found my holy grail thanks to my sister..

I use the shade 03 Dark and this is a perfect (color) match for my NC 42-44 skin.. I have yellow/golden undertones and this is the only bb Cream I have tried that doesnt completely wash me out or has too much of a pinkish/brown undertone to it.. Also provides good coverage and the formula works great on my oily/combination skin.. Use primer underneath and touch up with some powder during the day.. Summerproof love it..

It gives you a good coverage, and I like the fragrance, but the lightest shade doesn't match my skin color, I have fair skin with rosacea and the lightest shade looks as if I put a fake tan on my face ):

1)long lasting
2)covers like a foundation
3)blends nicely
4)Mineral based sunscreen
but the color shades are not that great I bought both medium and light and I have to confess the medium is too dark and red based,the number 1 or light is a good match for my NC25.30 color tone

I bought this because of the high spf but I found the shades in this bb cream to be very dark. I am quite fair skinned and am shade 103 Ivory in the rest of the Clarins range, but the shade light in this bb cream made me look like i had applied a tad too much fake tan! I've tried the shade 00 fair in this which only seems to be available online and it isn't too bad a match on my skin. I also found the smell a bit too strong, really perfumy and not exactly pleasant, not the usual scent of Clarins products that I love. The consistency is medium thickness and blends fairly easily, and gives a decent coverage for a bb, and overall is not a bad product but I think there are a lot of better bb creams for the price of this. Not one of Clarins better products imo.

The coverage is nice and it made my skin look pretty but upon second day of using this I had a terrible reaction to it. I literally used it for one day and for 5 minutes the following day. My skin started itching a lot and I had a burning sensation right a couple of minutes after applying this the second day and those symptioms immediately subsided when I used my makeup remover to take it off.
Searching for an explanation, I read reviews of people that also had reactions to this problem and some of them said that Clarins used way too much perfume and preservatives in this formula.

Absolutely love this BB cream, it feels velvety and makes my makeup look natural. I particularly like the matt ish effect. My skin feels lovely when I apply it, although it doesn't have as much coverage when I blend in my studio fix foundation powder it looks really natural.

Sorry, Clarins, I love you but this time you failed. Miserably.

I bought this based on a sample too dark for me that I tried and for some reason thought that in a lighter shade this would be perfect for me.

True, it covers better than many other BB creams I've tested, but it hardly moisturizes at all, and even on days when my dry skin doesn't look that bad this cream makes it look flaky and dull. The result is very matte and boring.

I find Garnier much better value for money and although it's lighter it makes my skin look better.

This is one of the best BB creams I've tried. You get a natural color and it covers verý well.
I tend to use Medium when it comes to foundations and BB creams and ordered that, but it was unfortunately too dark, so I ordered a Light instead and it´s just perfect for my skin.
Beware of nuance. Light should be fine if you usually tend to use medium.
I saw that all shades except just light was on sale so it may be that the other ones are difficult to sell.

I used to use Nivea for 10 years but they must have changed an ingredient because i started to get dark/redish blotches on my face. Ive spent heaps of money trying different kinds of products and it just made my face worse. Then i came across this product and I Love it coz its great for my very sensitive skin, worth my money. Everyones skin is different, you just have to try it and see if your skin agrees with it

This is more like a slightly tinted moisturizer. It does not refine pores, cover redness, melasma, acne or imperfections at all. It is a little "shiny" and gives a little greasy look on my acne-prone skin. I've used the shade 00, and it suits my NC/NW 15-25 skin quite well, it's a little cool and pinkish, but not too much. I like that it contains sunscreen. But not refining enough being a BB-cream!
