Not for me.

Maybe it's just me but I cannot find a BB cream that I love and is in my color. This one was ok but make my skin feel weirdly slimy in some places and dry in others. Not a fan.

Not a Favorite For Me
Sampled

Fortunately, I've been getting quite a few BB/CC creams from Birchbox lately. They aren't my favorite, but I feel like I've gotten to try a few of them out lately. I didn't like this one too much. I felt like it was just too thick and it didn't blend well into my skin. It just sort of sat on top of my skin instead of melting into it.

This BB Cream has good texture and coverage. It severely burned my eyes when I got it even NEAR my eye. I've used other creams before and have never had such a problem. Won't be using again.

not for me
Purchased

the reviews were excellent, so I purchased it. the product claims to be suitable for all skin types but it just made me look like I had on a very wrong shade of foundation. really bummed!

I have combination skin, oily in the T zone, and this seemed to make those areas more shiny. I also didn't feel like it evened out my skin as well as other BB products I have tried

Not great
Sampled

The "gold" color was too orange and shiny for me and I didn't feel like this BB cream blended very well. When it dried I felt like it was very visible on my face. It also made my eyes burn when I used it and the coverage just wasn't enough, I could still see redness and uneven skin tone. I might consider using it paired with another product, but it seems simpler to just stick with my Clinique CC cream which is enough on its own.

Not for oily skin
Sampled

I have mildly oily skin and tried this product today for the first time - seemed okay... color matched pretty well but after an hour, I looked in a mirror and my face looked so oily from the make up... like wet! it never looks THAT oily. So if you have dry-normal skin and like that dewy look (not sure why a dewy look is appealing? but to each their own) then it might be for you. But I much prefer Garnier's BB cream for my skin, which has a matte finish and really controls any shine that I might get throughout the day.

too shimmery
Sampled

I received this as a sample in my box and was really excited. But after trying it for a day, I find that the color blends and covers really well but the shimmer is too much for me for the day. Personally, I don't want to look like tinkerbell during the daytime, but I may try to use it sparingly at night.

Not natural looking

I didn't like this product at all. The consistency was too slippery, and it wouldn't stay in place on my face. It also was REALLY gold, and it didn't look natural on my pale skin.

Didn't really care for it.....

I had never tried a bob cream so I was super excited when I received this in my birch box!! However after I put it on along with my regular make up it seemed to point out my lines around my eyes more than just my regular make up. Also I could tell I had it on all day. It was very heavy and made my lines more noticeable. Very disappointed with this product.
