Made me breakout.

I wanted to get on the BB cream bandwagon. It seemed like there were a lot of pros, but I tried this Beauty Balm and got a case of the zits. I really wanted to like this product, but I guess it wasn't in the cards for me.

Horrible

Made me breakout, and still recovering from the horrible cystic acne this gave me. Will not repurchase and returning this week. The color is awful almost grey, and changes to pink undertones so not for my olive complexion but the acne from this isn't worth it.

odd fragrance

I did not like the smell of this product at all. I had to wash it off because the smell was making me ill.

Disappointed

I really liked this product when I first go the sample in my birch box. It gave a decent amount of coverage and balanced out my skin tone. However, after using it for a month my skin began to break out and become very sensitive. I was very disappointed.

Smelled Terrible

I did not like the smell of this or the final feeling after putting it on. It was sticky and smelly, a combo I do not like in face products.

muddy looking

A little heavier than other BB creams which would be ok if it wasn't for the dirty looking color. People mentioned my sickly looking complexion.

Too much titanium

I loved the thought of an "all in one", but unfortunately this isn't it! The titanium dioxide in this BB cream was so strong that my entire face looked grey, ashy and gaunt. Not even blush and bronzed could fix the ashy hue that it gave me. :(

Too heavy

This product should come with a warning. It said to use like a moisturizer, so I didn't pay attention to how much I applied. When I tried to rub it in it was too thick. And then when I tried to wash it off it was impossible! It might be a good product, but the company needs to tell people who are using it for the first time to use only a tiny amount.

Not the best BB cream out there

This is definitely the thickest bb cream I have tried. It was hard to blend and appeared very cakey. Mixing it with a bit of moisturizer helped, but not very much. I had to wash it off and start fresh with my normal routine.

Bad Color

I love BB cream, however, the color of this particular one they sent me was so light I couldn't wear it. I wish they sent a color that was more toward the middle of the color spectrum so that it could work for more skin tones. When I put it on it looked like I smeared white paint on my face. It's a shame because I do love BB cream and wanted to try this particular brand. I currently use the Garnier brand, and I like it, but wanted to try a different one.
