Birchbox Breakdown

Confession: We’ve always been a bit fascinated by chameleons and their color-changing abilities. So we’re geeking out over Dr. Brandt’s anti-aging BB cream with FLEXITONE®, an ingredient that self-adjusts to your skin tone. Unlike most creams, which need to be painstakingly matched to your skin, this balm works on a range of light to medium-dark tones, and nearly every texture and type. We’re so thrilled we might just burst out into a rendition of Karma Chameleon.

How to Use

Shake well. Use fingertips to apply a small amount to face and blend. Layer to build intensity—but be careful to avoid the eye area!

Not at all what it claims to be
Purchased

I am not at all happy with this product. It does NOT match every skin tone. I have light skin and this goes on dark and stays dark and yellowish....even after shake the tube vigorously before each use.

Eh!
Purchased

Not sure I love this product. It's kind of thick and sticky and It doesn't blend into my skin very well like it says it's suppose to. I'm not giving up yet though. I will keep it and try it during the summer when my skin is a little darker. Hopefully it will work better then.

Best BB cream ever
Purchased

Dr Brants Bob cream protects your skin from harmful rays of the sun. It looks so natural yet coverage is amazingly smooth and flawless. The self adjusting factor works on my skin in all seasons! Long lasting!

I really like this
Purchased

Maybe it is because I have a light olive cast to my skin...but this blends great for me. From the reviews it does not appear to work on very fair skin.
I apply over the Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Primer using a Bare Minerals dense brush.

I alternate between dr. brandt BB cream and bareMinerals Complexion Rescue in Spice. I Like them both.

I will reorder dr. brandt BB cream.

Terrific
Purchased

This product is wonderful!!! It really matches your skin tone and fill in the contours of your face. I have tried many similar products and never been this happy. It does go on a little thick - so be sure to use a primer.

Good not Great Product
Purchased

This is a good product. It didn't have quite the coverage that I was looking for but I was able to mix it with my tinted moisturizer for the color and coverage I had in mind. Also it got very watery toward the end of the bottle and a little too messy.

Good coverage but bad consistency

I really love the coverage of this stuff, and it does a fantastic job of matching your skin tone. However my big problem is how watery the product gets! Whenever I squeeze the tube, I always get this watery mess and I have to kind of work the product together with my fingers first. Doesn't stay together as a consistent formula at all. :(

too dark for pale skin
Purchased

I bought this produce because I'm sick of searching for a pale enough BB cream so when I saw this "matches" to any skin color I was so excited. Alas, this produce is far too dark for super pale skin like mine. Looks like the search continues...

Not for me
Purchased

Did not like this product. The flexitone is bad advertising because it doesn't work. Went on 3 times darker than I needed for my light skin tone.

didn't work
Purchased

Fair skin... not even close to matching. Also had sort of a sticky texture. Definitely will not order again and will be trying to return this item.
