I really love this BB cream. I am a MAC NC30 - NC35 girl. I have lots of yellow in my skintone. The Jane Iredale Glow Time BB Cream in BB7 is the perfect/best match. The BB5 is really too light for me. This provides great full coverage. A little goes a long way! If you put too much on - it will look like you put too much on. I apply this with my fingers - warm the product up and blend in just like I would a moisturizer. I like to use this as my primer. I apply a light coverage of this BB cream and then a light coverage of my foundation. This gives me a flawless look that lasts throughout the entire day. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

I really like this BB cream. It's hideously expensive where I live (75$) and I've yet to find out if it's really that much better in terms of performance and how it treats my skin than a regular high-end foundation. Time will tell. For now though, after a few days of wearing it, I must say that I really like it. I got the color BB3, which is absolutely perfect for my NC15-20, slightly peach toned skin. It covers everything and gives me a slightly dewy finish. All the reviewers who have said that you need only a tiny amount are absolutely right – you need very little for a full face application! I've tried applying it with my fingers, but I prefer using a wedge sponge, as I feel it gives less opaque coverage and spreads more easily that way. I love the faint citrusy-floral smell and my skin feels soft after I wash it at night. I love the squeeze tube and it does contain 50ml, as opposed to regular foundations that usually come in 30ml bottles, so this will last a very long time. Great product, I just wish it wasn't so expensive! Be aware that this contains several silicones high up on the ingredient list, just like any regular foundation and many other BB creams which are not marketed as "natural".

This has just kicked Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream off the shelf and into the trash. JI's BB cream has almost full coverage on the level of ELDW, by using even less product. Nearly covers everything. The way you apply it is by dabbing a few small spots on areas of your face then blending with your fingers. It has a creamy consistency, not hard to apply at all. There is a sweet smell which is kind of peachy (although I am using BB3, which has a peachy hue...)I have oily skin and this goes on with a naturally dewy/satiny look. It is quite moisturising, a bit too much for me because it doesn't stay on as well as some foundations. It'll come off easier when blotting, although after 14 hours it's still looking quite well off. Not as long lasting as ELDW of course, but the ingredients in this are much better. The packaging is a squeezable tube, so nice and clean to use. Have had no breakouts or skin reactions.

Skin: Acne-prone, Medium, Warm
I'm a professional makeup artist who has struggled with acne for the past 10 yrs. I prefer to use natural mineral based products on my skin, but many of the natural foundations out there just don't offer enough coverage for my complexion. I recently found out about JI BB cream and had to check it out. Absolutely LOVE IT! This stuff provides the FULL coverage that I've been looking for from a mineral product. However, I do find that b/c the pigment is so concentrated, you would have to pre-moisturize before applying or it will be hard to spread, OR you can also mix it w/ moisturizer or primer--then apply. For a skincare&makeup product in ONE that gives you 1.7oz , $48 is a quite reasonable, especially since a little bit goes a long way.

EDIT: NEVERMIND. Have been using this off and on for a year and I JUST figured out that it's the cause of my sporadic breakouts. Because I wasn't using it consistently, I couldn't figure out what was causing me to break out so badly. But lately I've been using this more and more, and the more I use it, the worse my skin gets. I'm talking breakouts like I haven't had since my teens-- I had to start using Proactiv again! I finally threw this in the trash and within a week my skin was 90% better. I'm actually ANGRY at this product and at the people at Jane Iredale who won my trust with their pressed mineral foundation and then threw this silicone bomb at me. Garbage. Absolute garbage.I bought this as a happy accident- I was actually in my salon looking for a slightly darker shade of pressed powder for summer when they showed me this new product. I ended up getting both the Smooth Affair and this BB cream and I have to say, all three used together (primer, bb, pressed powder) creates an airbrushed, natural look that I've never been able to achieve before. Other reviewers have noted that there's not a huge color selection, but the great thing about this product is that it sort of adapts to your skin tone after a few minutes. I've been wearing this daily for several weeks and it looks just as good five hours after I put it on as it does twenty minutes after. I will say that I'm super oily and this definitely doesn't do anything to help that; I'm used to blotting throughout the day, though, so that's not really a big deal. Another thing- reviewers keep mentioning that a little goes a long way? Yeah. A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. Think half a pea. Just a teeny, teeny bit. I apply this with my fingers (it seems to melt better and spread more easily this way) and anything more than the smallest amount will look cakey. Oh! And this doesn't break me out AT ALL. That's how I found Jane Iredale in the first place- EVEYTHING breaks me out except Jane Iredale and Jan Marini, and this product is no exception. I really love it.

Although I was very unimpressed with the BB creams I have seen from other lines, this is really something special. Glow Time provides an airbrushed look of flawless skin. nothing I have tried has come close to this makeup. Best of all, if you don't have time to go through your whole makeup routine, Glow Time provides a quick and safe (SPF 25) natural beauty look that we all love to have 24/7. When I have time to pull out all the stops and do full makeup it provides all of the glamour of a professional makeup application. This is achieved by using Smooth Affair primer, Glow Time and finish with the color corresponding pressed powder. If you are not sure what shade of Glow Time to use just call the J. I. 800 number and one of their consultants will match you up. Finally, in an effort to streamline your makeup routine and save money, this little tube of gold actually doubles as a full coverage natural looking concealer.

I previously just loved BB creams. However, I then "went cruelty free" and stopped using them as most were not able to be traced for their animal testing status. I did try.So, for the cruelty free girls the only that come to mind are the Boscia bb and now the Jane Iredale. The Boscia I was less than impressed with.Back to the point. I'm so happy to be able to re-enter the bb cream world with this one from Jane Iredale. Despite its cruelty free status, this is my favorite bb cream I have used. I do use this with her Primer as well, which I also totally love. Pros:-The coverage with this is quite nice. It is quite solid for a bb cream and i would give it an overall "light to medium" coverage for a foundation product ("Light" to me is Chanel Aqua lumiere and "Heavy" is Bobbi Brown hydrating foundation). I don't require too much coverage but for under my eyes, so I can't speak to this for someone who wants a lot lot of coverage. Used in conjunction with my color corrector and concealer, I am very happy with my under eye appearance.-The product lasts a full day for me when used with the primer. -Some bb creams collect in the pores and on the tiny peach fuzz between my eyes. This one really smooths out my pores and doesn't collect as much as others have in fine hairs.-Like most BB creams, I found matching my color somewhat difficult. However, I do find that less is more with this product. I am far happier with the color match when I use the least amount of product possible.Cons-Expensive, but this is going to last your for-ever because you need so little of it.-If you have oily skin, you may not be stoked with this product. I'm combo leaning dry and I get shiny in the T zone.-The color selection is somewhat limited, I think. However, as I said above, using less is much better and gets the color match better.-You have to blend, blend blend the heck out of this or you will see the product. Not really a con, just a note.You are limited in selection to BB creams if you only buy cruelty free. However, you now have access to the best one out there, in my opinion, with this new Iredale BB.

Great product, has full coverage but feels light on your skin. You only need a pea sized amount, and yes its expensive because of the high quality ingredients BUT it comes with 1.7oz which is more than most foundations. I trust Jane Iredale products to never bother my sensitive skin; I believe switching to their products improved my skin greatly!

I was very excited to try the BB foundation. I am NC15-NC20 in MAC. In JI I am a Bisque in Winter and Warm Silk in Summer. I ordered BB1 direct from JI and it was far to light for my skin so I exchanged it for BB3. BB3 is still a tad bit light for me in the summer and on MY skin it has a slightly cool tone. I called JI customer service for color assistance and they said the BB product colors tends to be lighter then their other product lines and to go up a shade. I purchased BB5 and it is too dark for me, but a warmer tone on my skin. After experimenting, here is how I see the color tones for BB1-BB5.BB1 is neutral (for extremely fair skin)BB3 is slightly cool (fair to light skin)BB5 is slightly warmThe product is expensive but you really only need very little. It takes getting use to, but if applied properly (I use a brush), it does not look chalky or caked. It does do a nice job of evening out my skin and covering the red areas. Now that I’m $100 into the product, I will try blending BB3 & BB5 to get me through summer.

I was excited to try the Jane Iredale BB cream because I use her Amazing Base loose powder with a tinted moisturizer. I found the BB cream colors did not work for me at all. I was given the BB5 as the closest match and it is chalky looking..not the right color...too yellow and too heavy...very dry consistency. I also tried another color out in the Amazing Base....normally I have been using the color natural and tried it in amber...too yellow for me as well. I asked my husband when I got home what he thought and he said...you look like you have too much make up on and your face is greasy. He never feels that way with the tinted moisterizer and the amazing base in natural. So for me it wasn't a good option for either the BB cream or the color change in the powder. I think it would work for someone with strong yellow tones in their skin and with an oily complexion.
