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.
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.
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.5
This definitely gives my skin a golden glow but I wouldn't call it a bb cream. It doesn't offer any kind of coverage, it's almost like a liquid bronzer. I think it might work well mixed with foundation but it feels silly to put this under concealor4
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.
This BB Cream does exactly what it says - gives your skin a golden glow. I love it.5
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.5
At first I thought golden glow was going to be too dark - perfect! No make-uppy look. Light but covers very well. I bought it so you know I loved it5
Got a lot of compliments when I wore this. People noticed my face looked brighter and told me my skin looked great. Only complaint is that it had a weird smell!4
I like the color and glow of this BB cream a lot. It has good coverage and no smell, which is nice!5
I have never used a product like this before and it was fun trying it, but I really didn't see any results.3
