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.
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.
I am always skeptical of BB creams. I like them, but they just either provide too much coverage or not enough. However, I loved this product. It is thicker than other BB creams I have tried and blends out nicely. It really gives you the "your skin, but better" appearance. The smell is a little odd, but you can't smell it after it's dried.5
I love this BB cream. i felt like J.LO when I had it on. It was so beautiful it did have a dewey effect which I do not like usually but I loved this!5
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 stuff is great! It gives my face a natural glow and yet stays moisturized. It looks it bit dark at first, but once you apply it, your face turns to silk!5
Makes my face look so smooth and doesn't cake on! Love this because it doesn't clog my pores as much as other Bb creams do.5
Nice, consistent BB cream. It's not my stellar favorite, but is a dependable product. Good lightweight coverage, good texture. Solid product, but nothing spectacular for me.4
I have struggled with bad skin since grade school. My dermatologist recommended I only use Marcelle products. The BB cream provides an even light coverage that never causes breakouts. It has a nice glow but isn't shiny so I don't even need to use a powder. Love it.4
I absolutely love this product! my skin glows and is hydrated5
