Marcelle

Birchbox Breakdown

We’'ll be the first to admit: Smooth, dewy skin is right at the top of our beauty wish list (right next to endless, clump-free lashes). This multitasking BB cream gets us much closer to our goal——and with minimal effort. It hydrates and calms skin, evens tone, controls shine, lightly masks imperfections, and, thanks to tiny flecks of light-reflecting pigments, infuses skin with a fresh-from the-yoga-studio radiance. This hypoallergenic, gluten-free, perfume-free, and oil-free formula is perfect for those with sensitive skin.

How to Use

Using your fingers, smooth a few dabs over clean skin. Blend thoroughly.

Love it!

I use this everyday, first received it as a sample and liked it so much I bought it. It works well alone or under makeup.

Not too sparkley
Sampled

So I'm trying out alternatives to regular foundation. I have combination skin, I can get oily in my T-zones and my cheeks like to be dry.

First, I tried this by itself, and noticed it's a little shimmertastic for me.

I put a CC cream on top that came in a flat color... it was PERFECT! I thought it could get too thick, but no, my face feels dewy and there are no dry patches. The combo is still less thick than a primer and foundation.

I'll keep testing, but I'm pretty happy with this product.

Works so well I didn't even realize it!
Sampled

I received this awhile ago in my Birchbox and since NONE of the other BB creams ever work for me, I waited months to even try it.

I have light olive skin with yellow undertones, and usually have to custom mix my own foundation - usually everything is too pink for me, even when I do it this way. Also, I have acne scars, rosacea, severe dry and flaky patches, oiliness...just a little of everything!! I would usually NEVER get closeup with my boyfriend without my custom foundation blend, concealer and powder, topped off with highlighter, bronzer and eyeliner......(for my minimalist look).

So summer happened and I needed to change up and simplify my routine. I finally tried this and I applied it thickly the same way I would my foundation. Didn't look so good. Later I tried a different approach, pressing small dots of product into damp skin only where I really need it and at first didn't think that it was doing anything, but after a few days I realized that I wasn't "noticing" anything because the product worked so well and subtly that the problem areas had disappeared before my eyes. I was so used to seeing this like pinky beige paint cancelling out my regular face, that when I still saw my freckles and a natural, dewy look at first I thought the product didn't do anything.

I love the results so much that I have cut the number of other makeup products I use in half and am ready to chuck the 2 bottles of foundation I had just purchased.

Amazing!

I've received several BB creams and haven't been impressed, until now! I love this one. Texture and color are excellent- carries a high price tag but I think it's worth it. I'm wondering if it will be too dark for my skin tone during the winter months though.

Perfect Tinted Moisturizer

This tinted moisturizer goes on smooth and creates a flawless finish. It is a very nice alternative to other tinted moisturizers.

BB Cream Golden Glow
Purchased

I love this product. My only suggestion is to make the texture a little creamer. It's a bit "chalky". But it gives a nice overall even tone with just a hint of color. It does not look like foundation, so you remain with a "bare face" look which is excellent!

Multi-tasker
SampledPurchased

Sometimes I use this as a primer, sometimes as a foundation. Works well either way - leaves me with a more healthy looking skin tone. I was surprised that a friend of mine also uses it; she's much, much darker skinned than I am. It's really an amazing product!

Amazing glow!
Purchased

I mix a little with my foundation for the most amazing, natural glow EVER! I love it!! Received a sample and had to come back to buy a full size bottle. It has lasted me for 4-5 months now and it's only halfway gone.

Golden hue

I bought it on a whim during Birchbox's spontaneous sale and I must say I'm impressed with results! No need to reach for my concealer anymore! Blends easy too. 5 stars!

I adore this product! It is goes on with such ease and looks as good as it feels on the skin. Natural, but still effective, I am holding onto dear life to this product until I can order a full size...so I appreciate the fact that that a little bit goes a loooonnnggg way. This has become my new "GO TO" !
