Birchbox Breakdown

It’s hard to recall our lives pre-BB Creams. We had to employ an army of products to achieve the effect of this single, elegant formula. Stila’s entry into the BB Cream market is as impressive as you’d expect, given the brand’s award-winning track record. Their deceptively light formula has 10—count ‘em, 10—functions, from antiaging treatment and inflammation-reducer to sheer tint and SPF 30. It also has been shown to boost collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 67 percent. As if that weren’t enough, it blends beautifully and gives skin a radiant finish.

How it Works

This oil- and paraben-free formula uses cutting-edge microspheres to give you smooth, flaw-free coverage. Hydrating emollients like sunflower oil increase antioxidant activity, while rosemary leaf extract firms skin, absorbs excess oil, and keeps acne in check with its natural antibiotic properties. Apple extract combats aging and brightens skin tone.

How to Use

Smooth a thin layer onto clean skin, and blend well with your fingertips. For extra coverage, apply a concealer, tinted moisturizer, or foundation on top.

Love it!!

I got this as a sample and fell in love! I have very oily skin with large pores and my skin tone is a bit uneven with some acne scarring. I used this product and my skin felt dewy, but not greasy, and I loved the extra boost in color. It's the first tinted BB cream I've used and I will definitely be purchasing a full size.

Not impressed

The texture of this illuminator was like putting on a thick glue on my face, with hardly any benefits. It looked fine for a little while, but it faded off quickly. There wasn't anything particularly wrong with it, but there definitely wasn't anything great about it.

This never fails to make me look fresh faced and awake. I mix it with my foundation and it looks flawless!

Love it

The first time I tried it, I used it alone and felt it was a little heavy feeling. Second time, I found the trick. I mixed it w/ my usual drug store BB cream and perfect! It's a little lighter feeilng that way but still get the nice illumination. My skin looks bright and alert and seriously it does make those fine lines disappear. Perfect amount of shimmer for my almost 40 year old skin.

Amazingly light BB
Purchased

This product worked great on my skin. I thought when it came out it would be too dark but it blended perfect. I used a primer first and realized I looked a little too dewy... I set it with a powder and have been obsessed ever since.

Had high hopes....
Purchased

I was looking for a BB cream that would provide good enough coverage to use in place of foundation on some days. However, I found this product doesn't cover as well as my drugstore brand. I usually use both BB creams or use foundation on top of. I may try this over foundation to get the illuminating effect it promises. I am 48 with light/medium skin and have the uneven skin tone, slight redness but not many wrinkles (yet!).
I will stick with the drugstore brand when this runs out.

Love!

Shimmery but not too much. Goes on light and isn't too heavy. I have light skin and it didn't make me orange at all. Love this product!

This was okay

it not too glittery on the skin, feels really soft and watery when applying to the kin, and it does keep make up last long. I use it on top of my foundation to give me that glow effect.

A little too heavy for me...

I like this BB cream, but it is a bit too heavy for me. I love that it gives great coverage and provides a bit of a shimmer. I LOVE that. But...it makes my skin feel a bit heavy and oily. I just wish it was a little bit lighter and then it would be 5 stars.

Orange attack

Not fond of this BB at all. I have light skin and this BB turns me into an oompa loomp! It does have some illuminating qualities but I hardly think a glowing oompa loompa is appealing any other day than Halloween.
