Birchbox Breakdown

The search for the perfect BB cream may well be over. This matte, oil-free balm delivers long-lasting, natural coverage, while eliminating shine and evening out skin texture and tone. It not only hides existing imperfections but also minimizes the production of sebum, lessening the chances that new ones pop up. And it has built-in SPF 30. In other words, this cream is so effective, you’ll be taking #nofilter selfies from here on out.

How it Works

SHINERASETM complex combines marine extract, which reduces the production of sebum, with a shine-eliminating mattifer. Micro-encapsulated water spheres, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and adenosine smooth and moisturize, while vitamin C brightens and evens skin tone. SPF 30 and natural mineral filters help prevent sun damage and hyperpigmentation. The BB cream comes in two shades: light to medium and medium to dark.

How to Use

Shake well. After moisturizing, apply a small amount with fingertips, blending outward for even coverage. Build coverage by dabbing on additional product once existing layer has dried.

Great foundation
Purchased

Just give it a little shake before you apply and it goes on really evenly. I know other reviews complain it comes out a little separated but all you have to do is shake it a little before you squeeze it out of the tube. It's nice and lightweight and provides the SPF which is a huge plus. Overall a really nice BB cream. I have fair skin and the light shade blends really well.

So far, so good.
Purchased

First use of the product is promising. Light to medium shade is a good fit for my skin tone and it seems to cover well. Fingers crossed for a full day of wear!

My go-to product
Purchased

I've tried a TON of BB/CC/foundations for my fair skin and very oily t-zone and this is my favorite. I layer it over Smashbox's Photo Finish primer, with a dusting of powder over the top, and it lasts for hours. You do need to shake the bottle because it does separate, and there is initially a pretty strong smell, but it dissipates quickly. I love how you can layer it and it doesn't just float on top of my skin like other creams. The lighter shade is just light enough for my skin, although if you're very fair it will be too dark. It also doesn't exacerbate the flaky skin around my scalp like other products for oily skin.

LOVE

I've only tried the sample (enough to last a couple weeks), but I love it. I have always disliked the way foundation looks, but this lotion provides the perfect amount of coverage AND it looks good all day.

Weird and goopy coming out of tube
Purchased

The money I spent on this tube, you would expect the consistency to not be so watery. Even after I shook it up like I was supposed to, I am very disappointed in the quality of this. I don't feel like it gives quite the coverage I need or want. The upside is it does not create the shine many BBs do, so that is why I give it a 3 instead of a 2.

LOVE

I ALWAYS use sunscreen each day, but I love that this product is a 3 in 1. It hides small skin discolorations, and dark circles after not enough sleep, and also mattifies any oil buildup. I have fairly oily skin, and this just is a really pretty base to put on first thing in the morning. All I need to use on my skin after this product is a little powder and concealer on my trouble spots. I love this stuff and will be buying the full-size ASAP!

High hopes, disappointed
Purchased

I really hoped this would work. The first problem was that the BB cream was separated. You know when a foundation separates when it get old? That's how it was from the beginning. I was excited about the SHINERASE but it simply didn't work. It was as if there was no difference between this and standard BB. Usually I will use a product that I buy until it is gone, regardless of if I love it or not. But honestly, I used it for two weeks and then replaced it. It will sit in my makeup drawer until I find someone who I can give it to. Use the money and purchase Dr. Jart Dis-a-pore instead. You will be happy you did.

Great for summertime coverage
Purchased

I bought this product on a whim, hoping it'd be great for summer, with so much sun and fair skin. I was right! I used this BB matte on days I was going to the beach or pool and it protected my skin just fine. It smells a little sunscreen-y and it goes on somewhat thick, but still worked the magic I bought it for. Would purchase again next summer for sure!

I can't believe I spent money on this...
Purchased

I've been using Skin79 BB creams forever, but decided since I had tried a Dr. Brandt sample to take a gamble and try the matte bb cream....When I got it, I was super psyched to try it, and even though it was evening I promptly wanted to try it out...

I opened up the tube, and squeezed a bit out, and there was a lot of oily liquid and then a blob of flesh colored cream that came out. I don't even want to try to use it now..While BB cream is a part of my daily routine, this one won't ever be in it.

It felt heavy
Purchased

This bb cream felt very heavy more like I was putting on foundation. Which is what i don't want in the summer. I also think it made my skin feeling oily. I have tried only 2 other bb cream s that we're samples but they felt much lighter.
