AHHHHMAZING BB CREAM!

I asked for a sample of sunblock after I received a medical grade peal at my dermatologist office. The nurse gave me a small sample of this BB cream w/ SPF 30 and I just tore it open and slathered it on without thinking much of it. As I walked out of the office I saw my reflection in a mirror, I couldn't believe it... my face looked flawless! My skin was perfectly matte, not shiny at all and my skin tone was very even. But my skin looked so natural like I had nothing on at all! I turned right back around and bought a bottle of it. Now I use it daily under mineral powder makeup and get tons of compliments on my flawless skin! I HIGHLY recommend this BB Cream, it's amazing!

Too drying

The coverage it provides is good but I feel that the product itself is too drying and made my skin flaky. I also prefer products that don't contain aluminum zinc in them.

Love it
Purchased

OMG where should I begin. I am always on the lookout for a great tinted moisturizer and thank you Birchbox for sending me the sample. Obviously the sample was super small but it was enough for one time use and boy I fell in love with it.
I always used Lancôme's tinted moisturizer but it always felt a bit oily to me but not this baby.

The only thing I hate is that; its pricey for a small tube.

I am on my 2nd one already and I guess you have to pay extra for something amazing.

perfect amount of coverage
Purchased

This product is great. It adds the perfect amount of coverage to even tone and texture but it is not too thick. I like that is has SPF 30 as well. Color blends evenly

ok

Not sure I'm a fan of the matte finish for BB cream - think it has to grow on me.

It was a bit more difficult to apply -- but overall has a nice look.

Think it;s worth testing out.

Thought it would be better
Purchased

Pretty sticky and thick. Didn't do much for my shine. Sort of felt like wearing a plastic sheet over my skin. Dries very quickly making it somewhat difficult to blend.

I want to like this bb cream. It had so many great reviews I had to try it. It seems to cover well enough but it dries too fast. Even when mixed with my moisturizer it dries so fast I'm sometimes left with streaks. Trying to rub in those streaks leads to dry skin. There is no way I'd be able to layer it on for better coverage.

Evens out tone
Purchased

I used this BB cream after moisturizing and before using a powder foundation and it definitely seemed to help even out my skin tone. It goes on pretty smoothly. My only complaint is that sometimes a small bit of oil comes out of the tube before the actual product does, and this has happened even after shaking the bottle really well before opening it.

smooth finish

I had heard a lot about BB creams and was excited to get this sample, as its the first time I tried a BB cream. It applied on well and gave my skin an even tone. It is def a splurge item for me with the high price point.

Long lasting

Tried my sample for a wedding, it looked great and lasted throughout all the dancing! I am a low maintenance makeup kind of girl so this bb cream was perfect. I did use a moisturizer before hand and I think it helped reduce dry spots and cakeyness
