An oil-free, multitasking tinted moisturizer that hydrates, brightens, treats, and protects skin.
"My skin type: -Combination -Acne prone -Sensitive -NC37 in fall/winter NC40 in summer -Currently using Ester lauder double wear foundation in Rattan -Revlon colorstay whipped foundation in Golden beige -Previously used Marcelle and Smashbox bb creams! Preview: When I first got the #bzzagent #covergirl invite for this campaign I was very excited. I am a big fan of bb creams and powder foundations especially for summers! Putting on foundation in this hot weather makes me really oily and clogs my pores. I like the overall feel of bb creams which are light and airy. I have previously used Marcelle and Smashbox bb creams. They are both good and really suits me but they are bit on an expensive side. I was excited to try this #covergirl clean matte bbcream so I got this in shade Light/medium. #gotitfree #bzzagent #covergirl Product specifics: -Comes in a nice tube and neat packaging. -The #bbcream is foundation like and not watery. -The shade is neutral and doesn't have very yellow or pink undertones. -It doesn't have SPF. Pros: -Easy to apply. Texture is very smooth so its easily blendable. No need for makeup brushes or a beauty sponge. Fingers does the trick. -Less time consuming so easily used on the go. -Tube is small so easily can be travelled with. -Doesnt oxidizes on me even in the hot weather. -Keeps me shine free for 3-4 hrs -Hides redness,blemishes and evens out skin like a light weight foundation. -Good staying power! Doesn't make me look cakey. Gives a very natural finish when set with a powder -No odor -Doesnt clog pores -Very affordable -Readily available at drugstores -Smoth and light feel/coverage Cons: -Less shades to choose from. Some may not find their shade -No SPF -Makes skin oily after few hours. Overall experience: I have been using the #covergirl #cleanmatte bb cream for almost 3-4 weeks now. Have already used most of the product because its so easy to use and apply. Its very light weight and gives the perfect amount of natural skin coverage hiding imperfections. Great for summers as I hate the cakey feeling of foundations esp when I m sweating! The light/medium shade is a perfect match for my nc37-40 skin. It doesn't cause any acne or allergic relations for me. Doesn't oxidizes or gives me an orangey face. Keeps me shine free for few hours. And the longevity and performance can be up by applying some translucent powder to keep the oiliness in check. It doesn't have SPF or other skin care benefits like other bb creams claim to have but overall this is an amazing product for an easy to go and awesome coverage light weight cream. Great for oily skin as it keeps the face matte but is not over drying. The finish is a natural looking satin matte. Definitely going to repurchase and recommend other to try this amazing bbcream! #covergirl you nailed it! (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)" - walgreens user
"I was a little skeptical on this because the last reviews were posted so long ago but this product is amazing! In one use it lightened dark areas around my mouth, lightened previous acne scarring on cheeks and exfoliated annoying skin texture around my cheekbones, forehead and eyes. My skin did become bumpy after the first use, but after the second use it smoothed out my skin.My argan oil and daily moisturizer soak into the skin much better now and my skin has a smooth even texture and tone. I don’t need as much color corrector or concealer anymore.I do recommend that you spend a long time scrubbing on the first couple uses to get everything out. You will see some pilling from the skin that will reduce over time. This formula was a little harsh on my skin at first, so I used it 3 days straight then every other day to maintain the dewy look it has given me. Also, rinse off any excess and pat dry before toning since the lemon is a little sticky. Less" - Sephora user

"I had been an ardent fan of DreamTint, which I had been using as a one-in-all product each morning. Unfortunately, my dermatologist implored me to use something with a higher spf, so I had to go searching again. I hate layering moisturizer, spf, and makeup, as I prefer something that feels/looks natural on my skin and like to keep things simple and easy. After trying a number of other products, I ordered GlowTime. Initially, I had stayed away from it, because as someone with oily skin any product with the word "glow" makes me run, but so many other non-Jane Iredale products disappointed me that I decided to try it. The first time I tried it, I did not read the instructions online and applied it liberally as I would have DreamTint--and I found it to be cakey. I almost abandoned it, but then stumbled upon something online that explains only to use a pea size for the entire face. Applying it this way produces a finish to die for -- no one can tell I'm wearing anything, yet it covers blemishes and evens out my skin tone like nothing else with a beautiful semi-matte finish. I was also worried that it would not provide enough moisture balance for my skin, leading to flaky or still oiler skin, but this has not been the case at all -- my skin is well moisturized with it, and I don't get too oily either. Most importantly, it does not break out my extremely blemish-prone skin. BB7 is a perfect color match for me (I wear PurePressed powder in Golden Glow and DreamTint in Medium). It definitely provides more sun protection than DreamTint, but my only wish is that it came with a still higher SPF. I do hope Jane Iredale will make such a product one day soon. In the meantime, for rare days when I plan to have more than average sun exposure, I'll have to wear an extra sunscreen. Thank you, Jane Iredale, for yet another wonderful product! You are far and away my favorite make-up line. Less" - janeiredale.com user

"Since they changed the formula of my longtime favorite Boscia BB (they added sparkles, boo!) I've been on a hunt to find something to replace it for everyday wear. This stuff has been on my radar for a long time - but I've always passed over it, because it wasn't from a "makeup" brand. Like another reviewer said, after trying it, I have no idea how it isn't literally FLYING off of the shelves! I've got dry, blemish-prone skin, and the occasional spot of eczema on the face. I work long 14-hour days, and it has been a huge struggle finding a base that doesn't exaggerate my dry spots, stays on, and doesn't leave me looking like a total grease ball 3 hours in. This stuff is totally phenomenal - my new HG! It isn't necessarily moisturizing, (but duh, that's what moisturizer is for) but it definitely isn't drying. The finish is perfect - very natural, neither matte nor shiny. It stays in place like it's flippin' superglue, and works awesome with both powder and cream blushes/concealers, etc. on top of it. It looks SO ridiculously natural - I'm obsessed. For a night out, I layered this under the YSL touche eclat foundation, which i find gives an awesome finish but doesn't even out my skintone as much as i'd like - and it was the missing link in my look! With this stuff, making sure I'm wearing SPF is a joy and not a hassle. Love it to death. The coverage isn't so great that it will cover my *bright* pink/red hyperpigmentation spots from acne (nothing a little touch of concealer can't fix), but it completely evens out any other discoloration issues my skin throws at it. (dark spots, redness, broken capillaries, under eye circles, etc.) Some reviewers have found issues with the color selection, which yes, is very limited, but for me the light/medium option is a perfect match. For reference, I'm a pretty standard light/medium tone (1Y06) with neutral undertones. I have a lot of issues with BB/CC creams looking incredibly pinkish on me, but this has a neutral undertone that i'm sure will work for a pretty wide variety of skin tones. I'm SO glad i found this stuff If you're on the fence about it, for pete's sake pick up a sample, it's awesome!" - sephora user
A lightweight mineral BB cream that leaves skin looking flawless and even-toned, while providing broad-spectrum SPF 30 sun protection and long-term anti-aging benefits.
"I have like very sensative combination dry skin, so that every oil-free foundations I've tried would dry out my face leaving cracks around nose and mouth, but creamy products would easily break me out :( I've tried about 20 brands of BB cream, both western ones and asian ones, but this dr.jart black label bb cream is the only one I've tried that could keep me moisturized without breaking me out. And actually when I first started using it, I could really see that it heals my acne scars and blemishes. I've acidentally fell asleep with it on for about 2 hrs in the noon, and when I woke up, my skin looked brightened and smoothier...which was so rare for me because I once slept with just uv protection on and it broke me out just after 1 hr. But still, I do take it off with a nice and gentle remover at night, and my skin breaks out much less now than before I started using this bb cream on a regular basis.For the staying power, normally when I don't sweat a lot, it would wear off like half by the end of the day. My skin would still look evened but less covered. The best part for me is it doesn't leave patches like many other. When it's summer and I get oily nose, it would slide off within an hour so I have to set it with powder. (Though now that I discovered the Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, I set it anyways to lock in the moisture.)Color wise it does look a little ashy upon apply, but after several minutes it sets and just slightly brightens up my face. I imagine that it probably wouldn't work for dark skin or very light skin tone, but for most asian and light nuetral to cool skin tone it would look great.Coverage wise, because I have occasional break outs and light acne scars, I would say this is medium coverage. It evens my skin tone naturally but not "flawlessly". It's about the same coverage as the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation. But this bb cream is so creamy, I haven't found any foundation that looks more fine and natural when blended. Also, I use my fingers to apply and blend it.The only bb cream I've found better when applied was the etude house precious mineral bright fit, which I absolutely loved but had to stop using because it broke me out so badly ;( Less" - Sephora user
"I wanted to write this review because there's a lot of mixed perceptions online about this CC cream, and to be honest, I'm so over products that get rave reviews across the board and are just awful for myself personally. This happens to be the case for this CC cream. I'm very impressed with this product. I'm 30 & have been looking for a decent, natural-looking makeup cream/tinted moisturizer that doesn't look cakey, doesn't turn into an oil slick in two hours on my oily face, matches my skin tone almost effortlessly, perfects my uneven skin tone, and most importantly, checks out on CosDNA since I have battled fungal (whitehead-type) acne over the past ten years and even going back into my teen years. I have extremely finicky skin - I have some enlarged pores on my cheeks (by nose) and chin due to sun damage in my adolescent years, combined with uneven skin tone due to past acne flare-ups and again from the sun damage, and oily skin to boot (thank god for Curology & SLS-free toothpaste). So when it comes to makeup products, I keep it minimal & noncomedogenic. There are certain ingredients I know to really avoid even if they rate as a 2 (like all -palmitates). I found this after checking it out on CosDNA when Ulta didn't have the NARS Pure Radiance TM in store. This product is the BEST cream I have come across to date. I apply with a foundation brush & set it with NYX HD translucent powder or NARS setting powder. My skin is fair to med. tone & this is perfect for summer skin as my body is darker than my face. It goes on creamy & perfectly, & the best part is it looks like I'm wearing nothing. It has not caused any breakouts & I only need to blot throughout the day. The coverage isn't crazy but who needs to look 100% perfect 100% of the time? That to me looks very unnatural. This is really unbelievable after over 12 years of looking for something that works for me. I just had to share my great experience with this cream. Less" - ulta.com user
"This is has to be my favorite beauty product right now. I have pale (ivory, not pink/porcelain) skin and it is nearly impossible to find a light non-pink tinted foundation match for me, even with Sephora's color IQ system. This one wasn't on my list but a Sephora employee recommend it to me and I tried it it. It blended so well and is a perfect match for me. I also tend to have a mix of dry skin around my cheeks, and oiliness in my T-Zone, this BB cream works beautifully to hydrate the dry spote yet controll the oil and give my skin a soft matte look. I always finish with powder, and usually have to touch up only once or twice a day (but that's so much better than usually having to touch up every hour with other, actual foundations) Another thing is the coverage. This is way better than a lot of medium to full coverage foundations I've used. I apply with a brush and pat the excess off with a damp beauty blender and it gives my skin such an amazing natural glow. Doesn't look like I'm wearing anything. I also can't feel it on, it's so lightweight and it doesn't smear or come off easily on hands. (Especially when set by powder like Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Setting Powder) I also usually struggle with break outs. Ever since I've started using this my skin seems to be less red, my scars are less noticeable and I don't get acne like I used to. (Except maybe the occasional little bump from monthly hormones) I am so happy with this product, I cannot praise it enough. I will continue to refill every time I run out. It's a staple in my make up bag, and a part of my daily beauty routine. Thank you, Dr. Jart ❤ <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"My main skin care is Andalou, and I have used almost every product, except the Roses sensitive skin collection. My daily face regiman is mostly brightening, with the age defying filler. HOWEVER, after using the CC tan spf30 daily moisturizing lotion I am hooked! In less than a week I noticed a smoother skin texture; dewy and hydrated, but matified appearance, and decreased the redness I usually have on my cheeks. It is very lightweight, absorbs quickly (1min), and has a light rosewater smell. It has only been 2 weeks, and usually results happen within 1-2 months, but I have seen results quickly! I love the end result of a moisterizer that has anti-aging, inflammatory and hydrating benefits, and creates a hydrated, dewy, non-oily skin tone appearance that lasts all day. This is definitely my NEW daily face lotion! Thank you Andalou for another break through product! I will try the rest of the line now! Less" - luckyvitamin.com user

"This is by far the BEST BB Cream that I have used!Others I have tried were either the wrong shade, ie; too dark or orangey, or they broke me out. I have really sensitive skin, and I am pretty fair. I burn then tan, but even when tan I am still fair. I also have redness and acne scarring with hyperpigmentation. Whew, that's a lot.This BB Cream is AWESOME! Not only is it the perfect shade, but it evens out my skin tone, covering most of the redness and hyperpigmentation. It also looks really natural and is so lightweight that my skin can breathe. I have really dry skin and I do occasionally get oily in my t-zone. I love that this BB Cream doesn't adhere to my dry patches and as my tzone gets a little oily through the day, the BB Cream stays put. It has a really nice silky texture once applied. It does need to be worked in a little and blended well at the hairline, but I have no problem applying this. The coverage is light to medium and is buildable. I love that I can slap it on in the morning over my moisturizer and I have a built in sunscreen and coverage that is a bit more than tinted moisturizer. if i want more coverage, I'll apply either my tinted moisturizer or foundation over the top of this. Some people complain about the "glitter" but seriously, it's not a lot and once applied it is a very light natural looking glow.I've been using this almost every day for about a month now and I do see some improvement in my skin. I feel as though my skin is more cooperative and my pores don't look as large as they had before. My hyperpignentation doen't appear as dark as before i started using this either.Overall, I highly recommend this product! Less" - ulta.com user

"25 year old ethnically-ambiguous white woman with dry, acne-prone skin and some redness. My skin tone shifts between light-medium and medium. I tan easily and almost never burn.I've been using BB creams for three years now from different brands including Missha, Dr. Jart, and Smashbox. I've also been using tinted moisturizers since high school, most recently Josie Maran. My skin gets tan and then fades throughout the year so I end up having to mix different products to make the right shade or mix BB cream with moisturizer to get lighter coverage. Most recently, I was mixing Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream with Josie Maran Protect + Perfect Argan Daily [Tinted] Moisturizer to get this moisturizing, covering concoction. I also mixed the Smashbox BB cream with moisturizer to keep in my gym bag and that had good coverage, but after trying the Marcelle BB cream I'm ready to dump everything else.This is hands-down the best quality, coverage, blend, and feel of any BB creams I've used. Most non-Korean BB creams are too much like foundation: heavy and thick with a lot of coverage so you have to match it perfectly to your skin tone. The Marcelle BB cream actually lives up to the BB cream name. It blends with my skin so it doesn't look like I'm wearing foundation (I usually just smear it on with clean fingers) and it somehow covers the redness and dark spots from my acne. It moisturizes like the Josie Maran moisturizer but it feels lighter, like how my Missha BB cream used to feel.I'll be switching to the Marcelle exclusively and testing it out on several trips this next month to see how it holds up on a long day of walking. I haven't been paying great attention to how I look at the end of the day but I'll definitely be checking now.It's a bummer that this brand is exclusive to Birchbox but I guess I have to use those points somehow, right? « less" - Birchbox user
"I'm not sure whether to call this product a light foundation or a moisturizer, because it does both very well. It isn't going to cover blemishes, but it does even my skin tone and give me a fresh finished look. It goes on smooth, feels great on my skin, doesn't clog my pores, and doesn't feel caked. For a little more coverage I can add a light layer of powder and it helps to set the tinted moisturizer as well. It doesn't have a shiny artificial look and the tone matches my skin very well. It blends into the jawline fabulously and even works as a primer for eyeshadow. The moisturizing effect is just a bonus. My skin can get pretty dry in the winter and some foundations will look flaky, this one doesn't and it helps combat the dryness as well as protect my skin from the wind. In the summer I get the added benefit of the SPF 15 and when it starts to 'melt' off with the rest of my make up I don't have to worry about it looking streaky or splotchy like other foundations do. I don't think I'll be going back to traditional foundations after finding this product.EffectivenessGreat for light coverage and evening out my redness across my cheeks. Gives me a finished look without looking fake.Ease of ApplicationA little goes a long way. I just use my fingers to massage it across my face. Can be put on a little thicker in trouble areas if need be without looking splotchy.ScentIt does not put off any scent that I can tell. « less" - viewpoints.com user

"This is amazing - it provides medium coverage, feels like a moisturizer, and makes your skin glow. I usually opt for the pigmented foundation to get full coverage, but I have to say that I like this product way more (even with less coverage) because of how amazing it makes my skin look and feel. It does not cake, it stays on all day, and it doesn't make me break out (especially when I forget to wash it off at night - whoops). Very versatile - can be used alone for a fresh faced look, or it can be used in combination with other products - if I'm going out I'll add powder foundation over it for the full coverage. I seriously am in love with this, I'm so happy I decided to give it a try. I do wish there were more color options - but the lightest shade matches my skin tone (even if the shade isn't 100% matching - when it goes on it looks great). Also - when applying - I use a primer before and I dot this product over my face and rub/blend in with my hands (I find this to be the easiest method). <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="6801719909701814028-full" data-show="6801719909701814028-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - 100percentpure.com user

"For the longest time, I had been looking for something on the internet that was lighter than foundation. I had tried like all the other girls I knew to put on makeup and foundation but it never came out right no matter how many Youtube videos I watched. It always came out cakey and I always wanted to take it off before I put it on cause I could feel the heaviness on my face. It wasn't until I discovered BB cream that things changed (mixture of Chocolate and Cafe). I had always heard about it, but I did some research and found that this brand was the best for African American skin tones. I started a new job and wanted to start wearing makeup on a daily basis so this seemed like a cautious step in that direction since foundation didnt work for me. I put it on with a foundation brush and I couldn't feel a thing after I finished! It didnt cover up all of my discoloration, but it smoothed/evened everything out enough for it to look natural. Like my face looked dewey for the first time, and not cakey. I added a bit of Clinique concealer and powder to set it and I was ready for the work done in under ten min! I looked more refined and I greatly recommend this product. « less" - Target user
"Let me start by saying I have never before written a review about a makeup product, but this cream is so good that I couldn't help myself.I began my quest for the ultimate inexpensive BB cream a few weeks ago and after trying L'Oreal's Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream, Revlon's Photo Ready BB Cream Skin Perfector, Almay's Smart Shade CC Cream Complexion Corrector, and Garnier's Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream, I can honestly say that PF makes the best BB cream available in drugstores.THE PROS: I have combination skin and tend to get very oily in my T-zone as the day wears on, but with this product, my skin feels significantly less oily and appears completely mattified. After applying this cream I finish with a light dusting of Physician's Formula BB powder and my skin looks absolutely flawless--without looking like I'm even wearing makeup. Since using these products, people have asked me if I'm wearing makeup, because they say it doesn't look like I am, but they don't know how someone could have such perfect skin otherwise. I would say the cream itself provides a medium coverage, but when coupled with PF BB pressed powder, it gives a full coverage without leaving skin cakey or even looking like you have makeup on. It's perfect for everyday use, and I might even venture to say the coverage could potentially be good enough for a night out.THE CONS: My only beef with this product is that even the light shade is a bit dark for my skin (I'm EXTREMELY fair), but it still blends well and leaves my skin looking better than it ever has before.Overall, I can not give this product enough praise. It has knocked at least 20 minutes off my morning routine and given me the best complexion I've ever had. GO OUT AND BUY THIS CREAM!!! « less" - ulta.com user
A multitasking BB water with SPF 30 that combines both the hydrating and preventive benefits of skincare with the naturally radiant coverage of a tinted moisturizer.
A four-piece travel-friendly collection of Dr. Jart+’s bestselling BB creams.
"I have been using this for over a year now. I have been searching for an oil control moisturizer with an SPF, that is all natural that doesn't break me out and for a decent price; and let me tell you it very tough. What I had been doing it using the Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean moisturizer (which is also a very good product for oily/combination/acne-prone skin) and adding in a sunscreen. Which worked well, but it really wasn't' what I wanted. This is leaps and bounds better. This is just an absolutely wonderful texture. Helped balance my skin so well! It hydrated but it never went oily or sticky. Keeps me matte throughout the day, but not dead looking or to dry. It also sits very well under makeup. A high SPF (which I love) without the white residue.(On a side note: it does initially come out white due to the zinc oxide which is the SPF content. The trick with zinc oxide is to not just slap it on. You have to blend it in with your fingers and the heat of your hands will literally melt it into the skin. The white will disappear. Don't be scared of it. ) I have also taken photos with this on and it doesn't have a flash back. This also helped with the clarity, tone and texture of my skin SO much. Which also means it hasn't broken me out. I was reading up on Zinc Oxide and through my research I started using this both morning and night. I actually don't have to buy a separate night cream anymore. Which makes this a steal. =) Zinc is great for acne, plus the other ingredients make it even better. (Another side note: If you have issues with SPF breaking you, try a zinc oxide instead of a titanium dioxide SPF.) It has a glorious citrus scent... It basically does everything it says on the packaging. I can't say enough fantastic things and I could keep going with the swooning over this product but Ill spare you. I really highly recommend it. I just wish it came in a bigger size. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-4656703231228745065-full" data-show="-4656703231228745065-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Vitacost user
"Satin Perfection couldn't be a better description for this product. I love everything about it. For starters I was SO happy that this BB didn't have silicone. Other BB creams I've tried with silicone in them got cakey looking in my dry patches and slid around in my oily zones. But THIS one applies smoothly, whether I'm applying it with my fingers, beauty blender or a foundation brush. I can wear it alone or over a serum+moisturizer without it compromising the wearability. This BB is actually full coverage and when I have to use concealer on a zit, I feel like my concealer actually blends in better than when I pair it with traditional foundation. I love that this BB is silicone free, has SPF and has a handful of other benefits. But truly, I'm just jazzed that it covers well enough to use it on full face days along with relaxed days. It IS a bummer that it only comes in one shade. I'd love to see them expand the shade range to include all ethnicities. After cleansing in the morning, I apply my First Aid Beauty Anti-Redness Serum, then a moisturizer or facial oil. I let those products absorb for a minute and then I use my Urban Decay Good Karma foundation brush or my fingers to apply this product all over my face and down my neck a bit. I have a light skin tone, neutral undertones and normal-combo skin with very mild rosacea and get a few hormone-caused whiteheads from time to time. Hope this info helps any people looking to purchase this BB cream. I really love it and would recommend it. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"I discovered the Lily Lolo brand about a year ago, after searching far and wide for makeup that was natural and healthy, and also had good coverage. After striking out with several other natural brands, I finally came across Lily Lolo and I'm so glad I did.The previous chemical ridden foundations I was using broke out my face terribly. I never knew that is what was causing it all these years until I stopped using it and started using healthy makeup. Now my skin has completely recovered and looks the best it has in years, with no breakouts or dryness. I suffered from terrible skin needlessly and unknowingly for so many years and now I don't ever have to again!This BB cream is great. I wear it under Lily Lolo mineral foundation and it helps give it great coverage and staying power. You do have to be mindful of how you put it on and how much you put on. A little goes a long way. I only use one pump. I start out by dabbing it on and working into my skin one section at a time because it dries fast. If you slather it on your face all at once it will start to dry and crumble as you work it into your skin. Remember: Apply it one section at a time. The smell is also great and it is very light weight. I've tried the Lily Lolo foundation without the BBC cream underneath and it does not give it the same flawless coverage or staying power. I highly recommend this as a primer before applying your mineral foundation. It's amazing! « less" - credobeauty.com user
"I have been searching for a skin care and foundation routine that works for my extremely oily, yet dehydrated, finely lined aging skin. My skin has very yellow undertones and is blemished with a few scars, a couple of new age spots and some other discolorations. It is also covered in fine wrinkles and lines - not deep craggy ones, just fine, feathery lines everywhere. I also have a few areas with large pores and my eye area and mouth are becoming very puffy and the skin is super fragile-looking and thin. I will be 47 this year. I have never found a foundation, concealer, primer or powder – no matter how highly rated -- that actually make me look better after applying them – even eyeshadows all look too dry on me. They may correct my color or hide blemishes and change the effect of the shape of my face, but all of those products always enhance how wrinkly and fragile my skin is in the end, and they have the weird effect of making my extremely oily skin appear to be bone dry. Instead of looking polished, I end up looking overly made-up and scary. Clearly, my skin is challenging to work with -- which is why I am writing a review. I have never once been impressed by a foundation and I have tried a lot of other beauty balms but this product is completely unique. All that said, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! It is the only product that I have found, no matter how many other things I try from high to low end. I will say the color is not for everyone, which is a huge bummer. It works for me bc the tone is very cool and it counters the yellow in my skin. It leaves me with a slightly sheer balanced dewy but not oily appearance that sets well as long as I apply it in very thin layers and let it set for a few minutes. Once my skin's heat and oils start to penetrate the product, it actually looks good. It actually adds youthfulness back to my appearance, which I have never said about any beauty product before, so I am giving it a full five stars. This product doesn’t provide perfect coverage, but it does enhance my appearance overall, which is my main goal when applying beauty products. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the techniques and lose track of the final product. I saw other reviews that say it is streaky. That is true, so I would apply it in very tiny amounts, and use a dabbing rather that wiping or stroking technique. Also, after it sits for a few minutes it blends into itself. It is very emollient feeling and for my skin, it feels calming. To warm it up without using a technique as harsh as contouring, I use a light pink cream blush. You could also use a peachy cream or darker toned bb cream around the temples and cheek bones - basically anywhere you would contour. I would not combine this product with anything iridescent as the very taupey color will make you glow like the moon. It wears off slowly, which is surprising considering it moisturizing effect. I wear it when I go to dance and yoga classes because it doesn’t feel like it clogs my pores and it stays on nicely if you don’t wipe your face a lot. It has a glow-y effect so it works well when you are in situations where you perspire, like a day at the beach or a trip to the gym. This is also the only product I have found that can be easily reapplied and still gives the right effect, but again, use a little bit at a time and place it strategically, rather than smearing or wiping it all over the face." - sephora user
"I'm extremely picky when it comes to skin care and makeup. I had been bouncing from one brand to the next, not finding the right one to satisfy my needs. They either left me too dry, too oily, felt too heavy on my face, or transferred off on my clothes or fingers too easily. This past year I had finally become satisfied with the Clinic line. Using everything from their 3-step cleansing kit to their foundation and their BB cream. So pricey, but so worth it compared to all the other drugstore brands I've tried. But then I received a sample of the 02 medium shade BB cream from The Body Shop! Good thing the clerk had given me the quick run down on how it worked, how the color changes as you apply it and "blends" into your skin. I was a bit thrown off when I opened the little container to find a white cream! The first thing I noticed as I started to apply it was the subtly amazing scent!! LOVE IT! And how smooth it spread on my face. I didn't need much at all, and instantly saw how it "blended" and covered quite nicely. Mind you, it doesn't cover quite as well as a regular foundation, so if you have a lot of blemishes you may still need some concealer. But I didn't need any foundation over it, I just brushed on some matte finishing powder (neutrogena) and I was good to go! By the end of the first day my face wasn't so oily, the coverage was still there, and it still felt light on my face. The little sample lasted me about a week and a half. Since I was out, I had to go back to using my Clinic stuff.... I see a total difference! My face feels oily again by the end of the day, and the Clinic products actually feel heavier on my face! I want more of the Body Shop BB cream!! Why use 10 different things for such a high cost when this BB cream seems to do the trick all by itself! I can't wait until my order comes so I can go back to using this product! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="4625143965403827178-full" data-show="4625143965403827178-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - thebodyshop.com user
An innovative eye cream that features all the benefits of a traditional BB cream.
"People are really misunderstanding this product! The only way I can describe the smell is basically sunscreen, which comes from the SPF. Not only does it have an amazing matte finish that lasts all day, but one thin layer literally covers all my imperfections. It truly gives me a flawless finish in less than 20 seconds! It's so lightweight I don't even realize I have it on by the time I wash it off before bed. BB creams tend to stand on the oily side since they hydrate your skin, but this formula has a mattifying effect: perfect solution for us girls who have to do regular touch ups on our t-zones. It's half the cost of Tarte's BB tinted 12-hr treatment, and the perfect dupe. I can truly say there aren't any cons with this product!" - ulta.com user
"Really like this CC cream. I'm olive skinned, but during the winter my skin tends to look a little blah as my color goes slightly sallow :( This however, brightens my skin right up, the medium/deep matches my skin tone really well (hard to do w/ olive skin), and it blends & builds exceptionally well. I mix it w/ my Stay Matte but not Flat foundation and it sheers it out to just the right coverage for fall/winter. Come spring & summer I only have to use the CC cream. The only downfall I've run into, is it doesn't stay on when I swim like my Benefit Some Kind of Gorgeous Foundation Faker does, but Ulta doesn't seem to be carrying that anymore." - ulta.com user
"I almost never write reviews, but if I could give this product 10 stars, I would! I have extremely fair skin (I have reddish-auburn hair), which also makes it very sensitive to sun, and various facial products. I was also hesitant to buy it at first because usually even products labeled as "light" look very dark and fake on my super white skin. But, I was really looking for something that would be kind-of like foundation but with an SPF to make me appear sun-kissed without actually tanning or applying 4 different products each morning. THIS PRODUCT IS A WINNER! You only need a tiny amount, and it blends in with your natural skin tone amazingly well. It totaly doesn't look fake, and I am constantly getting compliments about how great and radiant my face looks (I don't tell them it's makeup!). It takes no time to apply, and has the awesome benefit of having 20 SPF! It really evens out skin tone and I wear it without any other foundation, except the occasional blush. You can't possibly go wrong with this product! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user
"This is the best BB cream I own, and I'm a makeup junkie. My skin is normal to very slightly dry and this product doesn't alter the balance. I love how lightweight the formula is. Other BB creams I've tried, including the All-in-1 BB cream, are much oilier. This item offers great coverage and goes on more matte than your traditional BB. Tea tree products can have an overwhelming scent, but after a few minutes I couldn't smell it at all. Infused with tamanu oil, it can also improve the overall smoothness of your skin. At $18, this product is a steal! Highly recommend to all who like medium coverage makeup that feels weightless and non-greasy. " - thebodyshop-usa.com user
"This cc cream is absolutely everything. I’ve used it for a couple years and I would use it for the rest of my natural Black life, if only I could still find it. If it is in stores near you, run don’t walk to buy all you can because BABY! This thing is serious. Soooo smooth and delivers just the right amount of coverage for a natural every day glow. Two layers, you’re ready for a night out. It’s gentle enough for my very sensitive skin and it stays on better than the MAC and bare minerals CCs I’ve tried. Get some. " - covergirl.com user
"I have never used a BB or CC cream before. Since having more mature skin, most cream foundations go and hang out in my pours. Not a pretty sight. I went to a local store, just to see what the hype was all about. I placed a small amount on my hand, to see if it looked older after application. It didn't! It covered spots and looked slightly dewy, as younger skin does.Bye-bye mineral or liquid foundations and hello Pur CC cream.I bought one in medium, which matches my summer skin and light that is my normal color. I would imagine that between the two, is where I will stay.Pros: Good for mature skin (does not make you look older and conceals sun spots); can apply very light or heavy, depending on your current needs; stays on all day and I forget that it is on; balances and creates a more even tone.Cons: Why is this being discontinued? Please don't take this item away!!I never thought that I would have another kind word to say to my skin, until this product!! « less" - drugstore.com user
"I'm 56 yrs old with an oily t-zone. I've used the regular CC Cream and loved it. My only concern was the shine that would inevitably show up 3-4 hours after application. I would shine through any foundation product from any line and that includes using finishing powder to help absorb the excess oil. Throughout the day I would blot my face with blotting papers or facial tissue. This matte CC Cream is different. I put two pumps on a brush and worked it across my face. My skin looked like beautiful natural skin...not skin with makeup on it. I was also concerned that it would make me look dry and flat like matte products usually do, however this product looked very natural. So, about 4 hours later I looked in the mirror and my skin didn't really look very different from when I applied the product. Here's the real test - at the end of the day I went to my 7X magnifying mirror to really look at my face. There was a very slight and I mean slight sheen to my forehead and nose area. This was after wearing the foundation for over 12 hours! I'm very pleased with this product for coverage, easy application and of course shine control! « less" - QVC user
"I love multi-purpose products and I like to keep my look healthy and natural. I love the versatility of this product. It's incredibly light-weight and moisturizing. The illuminating feature is perfect - not too strong, not too weak. I love that it does not rub off and transfer onto my clothes. I use this mainly on my face, neck, shoulders, and legs which all get severely dry and dull during colder seasons. This helps give my legs a healthy glow and keep it flake-free and smooth. For the face, it moisturizes so well and gives a wonderful glow and faint color tint that I no longer use face moisturizer or foundation, just concealer and a highlighter. I also like to spread this over my neck, chest and shoulders as an easy color match to my face." - Beauty.com user
"I never write reviews but felt the need to do so for this product. I have never worn a BB creme before (always just some tinted moisturizer and powder)and after hearing all of the hype around them have been itching to try one. I have never tried any of Too Faced actuall face products (just eye makeup) and decided to give this one a whirl. I LOVE IT! It is true that the brush that comes with the product is pretty hard to work with. However, the final result for me is a flawless looking finish that is lightweight and lasts all day. It blends really easily and the color really adapts to my skin. I usually have a hard time finding makeup that matches my skin tone as I am pretty pale in the winter and tan heavily in the summer. This works for both! It also really takes the red tone out of my skin. I have pale, normal skin and used the vanilla glow. I am glad that I did not read the reviews before purchasing this product or I probably would never have bought it. Give it a try! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="4758790765553434599-full" data-show="4758790765553434599-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

"Alright. I'm a 27 year old, Half Caucasian, half Cherokee woman. My skin is naturally an olive, light/medium, complexion with warm undertones. Since I have a lot of Cherokee (natives have naturally oily, large pores) in me, I've suffered from very oily skin, blackheads, acne, pimples, most of my life. When I was a teenager, my main issue was blackheads on the sides of my face. Nothing I did or used made them go away. Now that I'm 27, my blackheads have went to "closed comedones" now. Closed comedones are those pesky, flesh colored bumps all over your face that don't pop like a normal pimple. The cause is from your pore being completely blocked from dirt,oil,sebum, ect. Nothing makes them go away, so I just have to deal with it. I'm a YouTuber (The Cherokee Gypsy) so makeup and beauty is my hobby. I have an out of this world collection of makeup, but don't wear it often at all, due to my very sensitive, oily, acne prone skin. ALL makeup breaks me out, so for the most part, I don't wear makeup. I go natural every day. With that being said, sometimes I try to "pop" my flesh colored bumps due to frustration, only making the problem worse, my skin bruises, and scars, becomes red. I purchased this IT cosmetics illuminating CC cream in the shade "medium" and it's the perfect shade for my skin tone. Since I don't wear makeup, and have such a troubled face, this is my holy Grail, go to cc cream I apply when my skin is in terrible condition. I've been using this product (not every day) going on 8 months, and it's seriously one of the best cc creams I've ever used. Since foundations break me out, this is a great alternative. I don't like cakey makeup, but like medium coverage, just enough to cover my acne scars, and this baby does the trick. I'm picky, and I absolutely LOVE this product! I apply with the it brushes by Ulta complexion brush, and it gives my oily skin a luminous, even, flawless, appearance, and stays that way until I take it off at night. This truly is a 5 star product if you ask me. For troubled, oily, large pores, acne prone skin, this works like a charm covering your scars, while not appearing cakey. If you don't like luminous, then get the original, but I enjoy the luminous the best. Like I said, I rarely wear makeup, but when I need coverage, this is the ONLY product I use. Will repurchase another when I run out of this one. This also has anti-aging benefits too, so your getting best of both worlds. I highly recommend this product if you have skin like mine, and even if you don't. This is the only cc cream that doesn't make my acne and closed comedones worse. Stays put all day long, even without a setting spray. Less" - ulta.com user
"I have used tons of primers because I have horrible acne and If it's not acne its dry skin patches. I was skeptical bc like I said I have gone through thousands of products not even being dramatic. This was suprising. It was thicker than I imagined and for some reason I thought it would be clear. It is white and goes on clear and smooth. Fast absorbing no strong overwhelming smells. It didn't burn or sit on top of my skin...my makeup looks amazing! It's like my pores minimized...my skin feels great and it has the tiniest highlight of shine to it. It's a glow you cannot imitate. Great with or without makeup. Very reasonable on price. I recieved this product complimentary for testing purposes and I will be repurchasing. I will leave pictures below! " - ulta.com user
"I have been using some great BB creams the last couple years - I really like Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream. When it was time to replenish, I thought I would try a CC cream this time, and Ulta had a great promotion on this Pur CC Cream!I loved this from day one of using it. I love the coverage, and even in our south Florida summer humidity and heat, this doesn't melt off or get shiny. It's as if I have powdered my nose throughout the day. It looks like I have no makeup on at all.I have very sensitive skin, and even more sensitive eyes. This doesn't have a smell, doesn't make me eager to wash it off after a few hours like some products do. My skin has stayed clear. I even use this around my eyes because I wanted to take advantage of the SPF 40, and have had no issues. My eye makeup goes right over it nicely.It is also refreshing to see the generous size tube for the price. « less" - ulta.com user
