Those in search of mega-hydration should try the Water Fuse BB Cream.

Dr. Jart+

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s impossible to browse our favorite blogs without seeing yet another in-depth exposé on BB creams. While we’re happy these skin perfectors have spread like wildfire, we’ll always have a soft spot for the Korean brand that started it all: Dr. Jart+. Their premium formula is a five-in-one primer, serum, moisturizer, SPF, and sheer tint. It uses exotic caviar extract and other actives to tame problem complexions.

How it Works

Made without parabens or sulfates, this creamy tinted balm is the cornerstone of a no-nonsense makeup routine. Arbutin brightens and evens out skin tone, while green tea and aloe vera soothe irritation. Rare caviar extract promotes collagen production, while titanium dioxide and zinc oxide provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

Apply as you would a tinted moisturizer or foundation. Layer as needed.

Pretty Great!
Purchased

I bought this using my reward points-without sampling just based on reviews and I'm so glad I did.I find the amount of coverage to be excellent, but I am probably using a lot. 2 pumps.I want to apply enough that the sunscreen is effective, so just dabbing it on doesn't make sense if you are hoping to be protected. I am using this during summer and my skin is very oily, so I have needed an additional primer to keep this from melting off my face within the first couple of hours.But I feel like this gives me a very natural look without being cakey which is what I was going for.

Clear complexion
Purchased

I was hesitant to try another BB product because some are either too heavy or too light and they don't all live up to the claims, but Dr Jart Black Label BB is great. I use it as a base and instantly see my skin tone even out... redness and uneven skin are blended and protected. It's not too heavy and still allows me to wear a little foundation over it. Was definitely worth the money and I highly recommend it.

Fabulous for sensitive skin

My skin is very difficult to please, and this BB cream has done the job. I have eczema on my face and this helped calm it down, and didn't irritate my skin at all. The color worked well with my fair skin with yellow undertones. No clogged pores, no extra oil, just nice coverage. i do put pressed powder over it in the morning but don't need to reapply throughout the day. I will be buying more!

A bit of a let down

I was so excited to try another Dr. Jart product after receiving and loving the Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm in one of my birch boxes and reordering that in full size. This was such a disappointment and I'll be going back to the Water Fuse. This application is not as smooth and it does not blend well with my skin. It feels a bit cakey for a sort of BB cream. To be fair, I have very fair skin and this is a bit darker than I remember the Water Fuse being

Covers up like Makeup, but made my face breakout
Purchased

This creamy beauty balm is great in terms of it covering up like makeup, but unfortunately it made my sensitive skin break out a bit. If you have cystic acne-prone skin, I would try to look for lighter options as this is a heavier BB beauty balm.

Pretty Nice

I bought this a few weeks ago. I like to put as few things as possible on my skin during the summer because I still have acne and I don't want to over load it. Sometimes I feel like I need to put on moisturizer before applying this but some days I don't. It's got pretty good coverage, makes my weird skin pretty even. If you're on the fence about buying this, I'd say do it.

Dr. Jart+

The ingredients are not as pure and simple as the product page says. I e-mailed the ingredient conscious team, but it's still unreliable ingredient listing. I'm upset about it, and I'm going to have to research every product elsewhere before I buy from Birchbox.
