Not bad
Sampled

I have tried out this product a handful of times and it is not bad. I think for my personal skin complexion it may be a bit to yellow for me. Overall though, it does cover well, has a long wear life and doesn't make my skin feel greasy.

Not into BB cream
Sampled

I never seem to get the right color, and it makes it harder to ascertain whether the product is good. I think that it is okay, but I have my fav foundations already: Dior for high-end, and L-oreal for drugstore.

Summer Time Coverage
Sampled

I like CC & BB creams because they are often better for my skin than straight up foundation. The one I received in my box this month is better suited for summer since it's darker than usual.

Quite nice
Sampled

I was a bit disappointed to see this in my box a first, only because I am not really into "Glowy" products. However I was pleasantly surprised when I decided to give it a try and applied it. I will actually purchase this product, its very subtle and not heavy at all. Ten out of Ten for me.

Great BB Cream
Sampled

I have been loving this BB cream. A little goes a long way and it matches perfectly when blended. I was worried because it appeared too dark coming out of the tube. Has good coverage for a BB cream.

Love this bb cream!
Sampled

Love this cream. Definitely buying. Not quite as much coverage but good for days when I want to go lighter.

My new favorite BB Cream!
Sampled

I've tried several BB creams (and one CC cream) over the past few months. All of them, without exception were so thick and heavy -- almost chalky. They felt unpleasant to apply, and just okay on my face. Not this one!

This BB cream is light, blends with my skin tone beautifully (it looks a shade too dark when it comes out of the tube, but it adjusts perfectly) and it's so comfortable to wear -- even on a hot, humid, Mid-Atlantic late summer day. An added touch of shimmer was a nice surprise -- but it's not too shiny and definitely not glittery.

I'm 50+ and have some pretty deep wrinkles on my forehead, and this glides over them. Doesn't hide them, and that's okay -- I'm really pleased that after a few hours of wear, and even all day, it didn't settle into creases. At the end of the day, my skin looked as fresh as it did when I left the house in the morning.

One caveat -- this cream doesn't contain SPF, and that may be the reason why it's not as chalky and heavy as other BB creams. I'll still use it, and will definitely be buying the full size. If they could figure out a way to add at least a 30 SPF to this without ruining the texture of the formula, it would be 100% perfect.

smooth coverage
Sampled

I don't use BB cream as part of my makeup routine, but I have tried BB creams when I've received samples, and this one has very smooth coverage and a velvety feeling finish. If I used BB creams, I would definitely consider using this one.

Pretty Good
Sampled

This had a nice moisturizing feel and lasted most of the day. This particular color was a little yellow for my skin tone but hopefully the have one that is not.
