I've bought this twice and am satisfied. It's nice for days that I want a natural finish and not a lot of fuss. The applicator is really nice - you can get just the right amount of product when you squeeze it, and the bottle stands up nicely in the cabinet for storage. It applies pretty sheer but can be built up with a little more product. I use a sponge to apply it. Sometimes I add a little dust of translucent powder, as it is slightly sticky and takes some time to dry down. I have dry skin and I do find that this is hydrating enough to be helpful to my skin. I recommend this product.

It's way too sheer to be considered a BB cream. :/ It doesn't stay for even an hour and barely covers my redness/blemishes, even if I apply primer beforehand. I'm not sure if I'm applying it wrong but I just do 2 layers of it if I have time to do so. The only positive things about it are the packaging & the price for it. So unless someone has some advice/tips on using it, I probably won't get it again.

This product is no longer referred to on the packaging as the "Fergie" BB Cream but Wet n Wild continues to use the same package design with the designation that it is an "8-in1" product containing SPF 15. I bought this on a whim after I misplaced my usual cream-to-powder Extra Lasting foundation (an Avon product). This provides similar coverage to what I was using. It imparts a dewy finish and is far less drying in appearance than the "miracle skin perfector" BB cream by Garnier that I tried (but in fairness, that product contains salicylic acid to keep breakouts at bay). This Wet n Wild BB cream doesn't seem to have much of a scent. It dispenses from almost a needle-nose tip, so you don't get a lot of excess product (or air) into the package. You only get 1 ounce for the money but it's inexpensive and ideally-sized for a cosmetic pouch, travel and the like. In general, I haven't been impressed with BB creams because they seem to provide limited coverage. As I age, however, fine lines on my skin seem to be accentuated by a number of foundations that offer a matte finish. Unfortunately, I'm still very much prone to breakouts, too, and so foundations aimed at providing more moisture tend to feel mask-like (too much silicone is typically the problem I find with foundations).A107 Light/Medium is a good match for my skin (fair). It applies smoothly, builds adequately and doesn't look cakey. The only real downside is that it does seem to melt a bit on the face in hot weather so it's probably best suited for cool, dry weather. Out of sheer laziness, I was stuck the past year on a cream-to-powder foundation sold by Avon that at first I liked because it is very easy and fast to just wipe/blend the product on using the foam applicator. But over time I realized that it never materialized into a "powder" finish, and was instead settling into the lines of my face. When the occasion calls for it — I need better coverage — I inevitably fall back to my standby, which is Clean Oil-Control by CoverGirl. I still prefer the CoverGirl product for having decent staying power, good coverage and being pretty much impervious to whatever the temperature happens to be (all without feeling heavy or mask-like). However, without a good deal of moisturizer, typically in the form of an SPF, CG Clean foundation was beginning to accentuate fine lines on my skin. When I need extra coverage, I apply my CG foundation followed by a thin layer of this as a means to blur (minimize) the "11s" between my eyes. While it's true that a moisturizer will do the same thing, some types can, in my experience, shorten how long a foundation wears and/or combine on the face to form the appearance of an oil-slick later. This Wet n Wild BB cream is a good solution because it leaves the skin looking more moist (and therefore natural) but, unlike a moisturizer, doesn't dissolve the foundation or cover-stick I apply to problem areas that require more coverage. For days that I don't care about perfect coverage, I would say that this product performs adequately on its own (a good value for the money). Wet n Wild BB Cream's main drawback is that it doesn't have as much staying power, particularly in the heat of summer, and it isn't adequate to cover angry red blemishes, either. Like most BB creams, I tend to think the ideal candidate for a product like this is someone with normal/dry skin — as opposed to oily/combination — however anyone of a certain age may appreciate the wrinkle-minimizing properties of a BB cream. Given that I'm still dealing with combination skin — my age is showing on my forehead but my chin/jaw still thinks I'm a teenager — the best solution I've found is to use a combination approach: a conventional foundation over the problem areas and a BB cream on areas that are dry or more wrinkle-prone.

This bb cream pleasantly surprised me. I really love the wnw coverall foundation, but lately have been looking for something a little more moisturizing and more natural coverage as I am getting older (I'm 27). The coverage is very sheer, but buildable - I wear 2 coats. It feels nice and smooth when I apply with my fingers over my clinique moisturizer & coverall primer (which I highly recommend) I thought I would still need a little foundation on top, but I just set it with maybelline matte powder and it lasts for several hrs!! My skin looks and feels soft and moisturized, and not oily... Best of all, it doesn't break me out!!This does smell a bit weird. But it doesn't bother me or linger once dried.I'm glad I didn't listen to the bad reviews on here - sometimes you have to take some risks! Lol Love this! UPDATE: It's been about 2 weeks and I am still loving this stuff. I have tried a couple of other BBs (clinique CC, Loreal magic, Lumene CC, maybelline BB) and I don't like them half as much. This is the ONLY BB I've tried that does a good job at evening my skin tone and blurring my pores while still looking very natural. My only gripe with this is lasting power. When I'm home, it's fine, but when I wear this to work I start to get oily about halfway through the day and need to re-powder. Still, it never looks cakey or unnatural.

I went to work (gasp) without my usual Missha BB cream on, so when last minute plans came up that day, I had to pick up a cheapie BB cream nearby at Duane Reade. Lucky, this was just $3. Well, you get what you pay for because:1-It is extremely sheer for a BB cream, and difficult to build. It took 3 applications to finally equal the coverage of the M Perfect Cover BB cream from Missha. 2-It had a light synthetic smell to it3-The selection of shades is VERY limited. I am a warm NC25 in the winter, yet this is the equivalent to "Medium/Deep" for this line. All in all, I will use it when I'm in a bind, but would not repurchase.

This is something I picked up on a whim as I really love Wet n' Wild eye shadows, bronzers, and lipsticks and with the low cost of around $3, I was willing to give the BB cream a try too. I like that this has some sun protection in it and is rated SPF 15. I can use all the layers of SPF I can get. This states on the packaging 8-in-1 beauty balm. I couldn't tell you what all 8 purposes are and nowhere on the packaging are they designated. I have the shade A102 Light/Medium. This is a thin lotion/creme and it blends well and leaves some radiance to the skin but it has minimal coverage. It does add a sheer wash of color and evens out skintone somewhat, but it isn't going to give you a perfect canvas for a full face. This works well over a primer and underneath a foundation and it has been compatible with all my skincare products so far. If you are going for a natural no make up look, this works fine with just a mineral powder to set it. Without it, it has some trouble with staying power though in the summer heat and with a little sweat this tends to become patchy and needs adjustment. I've only experienced one breakout after using this multiple times so it may have been mostly my fault for falling asleep before removing my makeup for the day. I plan on using this up as it's not a bad product, but I simply need more coverage and something to hold up to heat and humidity. I'll use this up while it's summer for an everyday stay at home look, but not for an evening or more made up look. It isn't a terrible product by any means, and I can still use it beneath my foundations and with a mineral powder it works well enough. I will get my money's worth, but I won't repurchase.

I do like this; have the Light and the Deep. The reason for the latter is I found that one very cheap, and I can use it to add color to such things as sunscreen--yay! I have dryish sensitive skin, and this doesn't irritate or dry it out. I find it combines well with other products so I can adjust coverage and color. I guess I am not looking for it to be a full coverage product so am not disappointed by that. I can use the Light all over, then add a bit more of something with more coverage (such as Coverall or a concealer) where needed, such as around eyes and nose. My skin won't tolerate any powder, so anything that requires powder isn't usable for me, this doesn't. I have several of the Fergie line, the best being the eyeshadow primer.

I'll keep buying this as long as they keep making it because it suits my needs perfectly and the price is unbeatable. BB Cream is not meant to be heavy. It's simple meant to be an opaque moisturizer with SPF. I see a lot of reviews complaining about the sheerness of the product. It's not a foundation. I applied it today for a morning interview and it's very buildable. I applied two light layers and set with a translucent powder. I was pleased because I could still see my natural tone coming through but most of my imperfections were covered within reason.I found this at Walgreens. I'm Black American with a golden or caramel skin tone, so I had to choose the "deep" shade. It is the darkest color offered in the line. For any woman of color reading this, if your darker than me; you'll have to find a different brand to match your shade.Sidenote: It smells like cookies or cake, I don't know but it was weird when I first got a whiff of it out of the bottle. I've never owned a facial makeup product that was scented. It's too much and not really needed. After 5 hrs of wear, I noticed some oiliness on my skin, so I patted with a Kleenex. It wasn't enough to make me stop using the product. I'll try it again when I run out as long as my skin reacts well to it.

This stuff is far too sheer too be considered a bb cream -- tinted moisturiser, sure. I like that it has spf but it has such very little (15? pshaw), and like many other reviewers, the smell! It smells like maple syrup to me, yuck. It was just so underwhelming.

Not too heavy, unscented, applies and blends very nicely. I bought the medium-dark shade and it is not too dark for my medium toned skin. I really like this BB Cream.
