Let's start with the positive: this product, in the light-medium color, actually blended well into my super pale skin, and it didn't emphasize any dry spots on my skin. Unfortunately, though, it settled into my pores, clogged them, and caused breakouts.Ingredients: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Phenyl Trimethicone, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Dipropylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Arbutin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Magnesium Sulfate, Aluminum Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Calcium Stearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Polysorbate 80, Propylene Glycol, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Talc, Tocopheryl Acetate, Adenosine, Alcohol, Lecithin, rh-Oligopeptide-1, Soybean Oil, PVP, Platinum Powder, Steareth-20, Chrysin, N-Hydroxysuccinimide, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide. continued >>

I bought this in a set. I saw that it was Light-medium and was excited that it was my color, but applying it I was a little iffy. It looked more light than medium, and it was way too light for my complexion. As it sat, it started to match my skin much better and I actually really like this. During the fall, my skin gets really dry and ashy. I was so excited to try the product that I forgot to put on moisturizer, and usually with foundations it makes my skin look way more dry than it was before. With this product I was happy that it didn't draw that kind of attention to my face. Overall, I am happy with this product

The best BB cream I've found so far for very fair skin. No tide marks here!Due to a medical condition a key concern is physical SPF. I used this throughout summer and didn't feel that tell-tale burning feeling for a good few hours (however, I don't feel this BB stays in place long enough to provide protection for too long).The main downside is that I was unbelievably shiny. It looked like it didn't set, or I was sweating. This was despite powder etc.Packaging is annoying - I'm not sure if I'm running low as the pump isn't always effective, and I'm too scared to cut it open in case there's a fair bit remaining and it oxidises or something.All in all a good buy due to colour and SPF, and I'd definitely purchase it again for the summer if there's a good offer available.

AMAZING product! I'm a medium skin tone, initially purchased the product in the winter and it was a great match. I was worried it would not match my skin in the summer months but somehow it did even though I tanned. I even took this to cuba and wore it everyday and it lasted and made my skin look flawless all day. In the summer I use it without a moisturizer but in the winter I do wear my moisturizer underneath as my skin does get fairly dry. I also tend to have flaky skin in the winter and this is one of the very few products that did not accentuate this problem. Also did not break out my sensitive skin. LOVE this bb cream, I hope it does not get discontinued...has been out of stock on the sephora website for quite some time now :(. Only complaint I have is that the packaging is awful. The pump stops taking out product with over 25% of the product still in there. So I use the the handle of a thin brush to get the product out which can be time consuming and not very sanitary. I hope they fix the packaging. All in all it's the best bb cream I have ever used and will continue to purchase.

Hands down my favorite BB cream to date. The color matches my skin tone easily, and it provides great coverage without being too heavy. I love the SPF 45, too! It lasts most of the day and helps make my other products (blush, bronzer, etc) go on smoothly and blends easily.

This is a great BB cream with high spf, broad-spectrum protection from non-chemical sunscreens. I usually have an impossible time with foundations, moisturizers and sunscreens, because I have a very fair/very yellow skin tone and very sensitive, acne-prone, oily skin. During the hot and humid summers of NYC & DC where I split my time, it is demoralizingly impossible to have makeup ever stay on for more than 20 minutes, but this BB cream stays on all day and looks nice! If I'm not in a hurry, I'll put a thin layer on all over my face with my fingers, blend in, then add a second layer only on the areas where I have hyperpigmentation (my cheeks). Then I set with powder and add bronzer/contour, then set that with powder. Sometimes I'll finish off with ELF setting spray. If I'm in a hurry, I just smear it on all over my face, set with powder and go. This doesn't oxidize on me, which is also shocking, and I only have to blot twice during the day, instead of every hour on the hour, as I do with most foundations and BB creams. I'm around an NC20-25, and the BB cream in Light seems to work very well for me. But I have heard people with deeper skin tones say the Light shade works for them as well. My neck is lighter than my face, but I just use my bronzer down the center of my neck (as Lisa Eldridge has suggested for folks in my situation) so everything blends in. This has not broken me out and I have been using for about a month now. Really impressed with this product. In the past, I gave a high rating for the Peter Thomas Roth CC cream and the Smshbox CC cream, but this Dr Jart+ Premium BB spf 45 PA+++ is definitely better than both in coverage and staying power. This is also just slightly better for me I think than even the Laneige BB Cushion Compact, which I also love. I think the Laneige cushion delivery system which gives such a nice flawless finish also wastes a lot of product, as I went through the first cushion (.5 oz) super quickly. I don't have that issue with the Dr Jart+ Premium BB and I still end up with a very nice look and finish.

Hate the packaging, if you don't store standing up on the cap it can be hard to get the product out when it runs low. Also, i had to buy both shades to get the right match for skin. I love how it makes my skin look and it is not drying at all. Perfect for Florida sun.

I got a sample of this, and didn't expect it to work at ALL for my almost tan skin, with its pale color. MAN, was I wrong. When it goes on initially, it is too light, but somehow it seems to adjust to my skin color and cover all but my darkest undereye bags. It evens out my skin, and provides hydration throughout the day for my dry, winter skin. It may be too thick and hydrating for my rather oily skin in the summer. But overall - a SHOCKINGLY awesome product that will probably be my go-to BB cream/foundation in the colder months!

I got this at Christmas and gave been using it for about a month. I am impressed with this BB cream. It covers well and makes my skin look flawless. It lasts on my skin all day without fading or oxidizing. I have not experienced any redness or breakouts with this. I like it a lot.

This product is fine but I was expecting it to be great after reading the reviews.I still need to use moisturizer on my cheeks and unless I'm very careful with the application it looks cakey and the color looks off. It evens out my skin tone a bit but that is all. It's good enough that I'll finish the tube but then I'll go back to my regular foundation.
