Dr. Jart+

Birchbox Breakdown

We desperately try to adhere to the less-is-more philosophy, and Dr. Jart’s Water Fuse Beauty Balm helps us minimize our routine. A moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum all-in-one, this tinted BB cream even helps hide imperfections—so there’s no need for foundation or cover-up. Think of it as the Swiss Army Knife of your beauty cabinet.

How it Works

Made with 50 percent water, the brand's Advanced Water Bead Technology helps hydrate and maintain healthy moisture for a dewy, fresh look, with help from hyaluronic acid and aloe vera. Sebum-regulating ingredients keep your complexion from becoming greasy, while portulaca oleracea extract protects skin from environmental damage. The cherry on top of this multitasking product is broad-spectrum SPF 25+, which blocks harmful UVA and UVB rays from reaching your skin. This product is free of sulfates and phthalates.

Too light for my skin color.
Purchased

This product was too thick and light colored for my skin color. I was unable to wear it, as I prefer the natural look.
Lots of chemicals in the ingredients as well. I guess I need only CC creams,not the BB cream for younger skin types.

gave it another chance
SampledPurchased

When I received my first sample of this I adored it.I ordered the full size & began to question my choice .I discovered this works best with a little clear primer & smaller amounts of this balm.I use it as a foundation .It has light even coverage & a little bit of illumination.It does not seem to settle in the creases & I am happy with the SPF aspect.I think it probably works best with fair skin.

Unpredictable
SampledPurchased

I loved this BB cream when I first bought it, but I quickly found it would separate. It depends on what you have on underneath, but I think the formula must be unstable. It will interact with your moisturizer and become an oil slick or hard to absorb. Other times if I didn't wear anything underneath it seemed fine. I'm not sure if something was wrong with mine, but I definitely did not keep it. The color and coverage was pretty good. Just be careful what you wear underneath it.

Perfect for my skin
SampledPurchased

I love that this is an all-in-one solution without the heaviness of foundation. It provides sun protection and moisturizes while also smoothing out imperfections. Can't praise enough.

Well worth it!
SampledPurchased

I fell in love with this BB Cream after getting it in my monthly box. I tried to find a drug store/grocery store equivalent. It didn't happen. This product is far superior and well worth the price. A little bit goes a long way and it works well with fair skin. I will continue to spend a little bit more than I would normally for the great result!

Too little coverage

I understand that BB creams are supposed to be light, sheer, and basically for when you don't feel like putting much makeup on, but I want to still feel like there's a purpose/benefit to the makeup I'm putting on. You have to use concealer if you have any blemishes. Only comes in one tone, and it has a grey-ish look after applying. I didn't find this any more hydrating than other products I've used, even between all the other BB's by this brand (also, if you compare the active ingredients between all Dr Jart's BB's, they've virtually the same and most have to do with sunscreen).

Just ok
Purchased

I'm the kind of girl that wants more coverage. The consistency of this product was not for me. It felt kind of greasy.

The Water Fuse is great on dry skin this winter
SampledPurchased

It's difficult finding a good BB cream in the winter because 1) you're skin doesn't have that summer glow and 2) it gets dry very easily. I've used other BB creams in the past, but I think I bought more of this because it doesn't dry my skin out. It also doesn't feel oily by the end of the day, which is a big accomplishment for this product. It really does fuse with your skin - just wait a few moments. And this is a light product, which means I'll definitely use it on days when I don't feel like wearing a lot of makeup.
