Works so well I didn't even realize it!
Sampled

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.

Not too sparkley
Sampled

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.

Perfect BB cream
Sampled

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.

Awesome BB cream!

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.

My FAVORITE purchase I’ve ever made from Birchbox!
SampledPurchased

I LOVE this BB cream so much!!! It goes on so smoothly and evens my skin tone but it looks so natural and you can not tell that I am wearing makeup! I love how natural it is! I have a medium skin tone and can see how this color would not work for every skin tone but it matches mine perfect! Will definitely continue purchasing this awesome product!!! The BEST!

AMAZING

I am always on the lookout for a medium to full coverage foundation. This BB cream is light weight and it provides great coverage even when using a small amount. I am really impressed with this product!

Nice glow
Sampled

I like this a lot since I dont use foundation. It gave my skin a nice glow, and was super light, never came off in my hands when I touched my face. I would buy it again but it's super expensive
