I was pretty happy with this product until I got a sample of Benefit Big Easy and have since switched. L'Occitane Sublime Beauty Cream smells really nice and goes on smooth, but the coverage is somewhat lacking and it doesn't seem to dry nice. My face was definitely "dewy" after I used it and I personally prefer the powder finish offered by the Big Easy.
Love this product!
This is one of the best BB creams I have ever used. It goes on smoothly and smells amazing. I love that it has SPF protection but doesn't feel oily or heavy at all!
Too chalky for dry skin
Maybe it is just me but I have not found a BB or a CC cream that I like. I usually don't like tinted lotions because I have to avoid spreading past the jawline and have to use another product on my neck. I love L'Occitane products in general and always use a moisturizer with SPF 30 so I had high hopes for this one. I found it to be drying and chalky although the color was good. The liquid part separates so it has to be shaken which is a nuisance. I am going to set aside until summer when the weather is humid and it may work better for me.
So worth it
I received a small foil packet of this product in the same Birchbox that contained the Sublime Essence. Smart idea Birchbox peeps! The two products are PERFECT together. They have the most subtle but gorgeous scent (clean, natural, herbal). This Sublime Beauty Cream applies like a dream over the Sublime Essence. Typically, I use a heavier/fuller coverage foundation due to uneven skin tone (melisma). This beauty cream is similar to a BB cream. It's light, smooth, breathable, natural looking, and really evens out my skin tone while also moisturizing.
The products are pricey together or separately (which is the only reason I gave the Sublime Beauty Cream 4 stars). I bit the bullet and bought both, because they work so well together. But honestly, each product is so great, you could use one without the other.
I highly recommend the Sublime Beauty Cream.
I wanted to love those
I was so excited to try this and had my eyes on it for over a month until I finally splurged and bought it. When I finally tried it I was amazingly disappointed. I dont think this should be in the BB cream section the box the product comes in basically describes it as a sunblock for the face not a bb cream. I'm very light skinned I dont tan in the summer or fake tan ever and I got the lightest tint offered and it was very noticeably orange on my face I was embarrassed when I saw my reflection outside it looked like I put self tanner on my face. Also when squeezing the product out it seems separated from the base. What I mean by that is you see the cream that has the tint in it when you squeeze it out but you also see some watery like substance at the same time separated from the cream. (makes me wonder.... did I get a bad batch???) My face did not feel refreshed or moisturized after this product it felt almost dirty and oily in a way and made the blemishes I have stick out more then ever, after applying this my pimples suddenly were bright red and stayed like that for the entire day. I don't really use foundations or anything like that I'm used to using BB creams with barely any coverage, moisturizing tints, or nothing at all but this product is the worst I have tried so far and is very very expensive compared to the others the only reason I wanted to try this was because of the natural products and the philosophy behind the brand.
This is my first BB cream and I love it! It's SO simple to use in the morning before work and lasts all day. I've had several coworkers notice how much nicer my skin looks.
LOOKS LIKE I HAVE NEW SKIN.
THIS BEAUTY CREAM IS THE BEST! I PUT IT ON OVER THE OC8 MATTIFYING GEL AND THE L'OCCITANE SUBLIME BEAUTY CREAM GOES ON PERFECTLY SMOOTH AND MY SKIN LOOKS YOUNGER. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A LITTLE DARKER COLOR, BUT LOVE THE PRODUCT. MY SKIN DOESN'T FEEL GREASY OR SHINY, OR FEEL LIKE I HAVE A LAYER OF PAINT ON. IT ALSOCOVERS SMALL LINES AND FFILLS IN IMPERFECTIONS ON MY SKIN!
This is a really nice BB cream. The consistency is creamy but not greasy. Some BB's are too dry for me but this one is not. The medium tint is fine for me and perfect to wear without anything else.
I'll buy this again.
This was my first time using a BB cream and I was pleasantly surprised! It's very light weight and stays on all day. I really like the faint flowery scent it is. I will definitely buy this again when it runs out eventually!
Too much fragrance
Although this BB Cream smells amazing - like a French garden - I can't help but think all that fragrance is what has made me break out like a monster in the week and a half that I have been wearing it. Sad face.
