"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 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
Maybelline's Dream BB Pure is a clarifying 8-in-1 skin perfector with sheer coverage. This BB Cream delivers natural-looking skin with a matte finish. A blemish-fighting BB cream with 2 percent Salicylic Acid.
"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
Prime, protect, moisturize, and perfect your skin with this multitasking e.l.f. Cosmetics bb cream! Infused with key anti-aging ingredients like vitamin e, jojoba, aloe, and cucumber to hydrate and nourish the skin.
"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
"I only stumbled upon this product for the first time when it was already in the Last Chance section of the website. Within two days of receiving it, I bought three more! It was simply that perfect and I just can't fathom why Clinique would discontinue it!The color matches my skin perfectly, which we all know is a challenge. Now that I'm beginning to worry more about fine lines, I'm trying to stay away from powders, but miss the speed and ease of a powder foundation. So this little cushion compact is the perfect solution!The super soft application sponge-thingie makes the foundation glide and blend smoothly, with a light finish, though it's easy to build to a more full coverage if one desires. It doesn't settle into fine lines, feels weightless, and does a pretty good job of keeping up with my combination skin. It lasts all day without requiring touch-ups. And if that's not enough good stuff to say about this product, the fact that it's got an SPF of 50 is just WOW!Clinique, I really hope you listen to your fans on this one because it's discontinuation is a real loss! We love it; please bring it back! Less" - clinique.com user

"I ordered the Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream as I have developed rosacea and my cheeks have markedly red areas and as I already use L'Oreal Nude Magique eie de teint, which is excellent, I found that applying the anti-redness cream first, resulted in almost all traces of redness gone - my sister was astonished at the transformation.

"I've used this product a handful of times now over the past month. I bought this product because it's claims to be: 100% Natural & 70% Organic Skin Nourishing & Ultra-light Hypoallergenic & Fragrance Free Dermatologist Approved Color 'Light' doesn't exactly match my skin tone but it's VERY close. I want to say it's a little too pigmented (very slightly orangy were-as I'm more on the yellow side) but overall looks great when blended and topped of with Mineral Veil. I recommend skin tones up to Medium to stick with LIGHT. Coverage is less then my previous foundation but decent. I have trouble covering up the little acne I do have. Probably will start searching for a concealer for my under eyes and acne (didn't need concealer with my previous foundation) but I'm perfectly fine with doing that given the natural and nourishing bases of this product. Texture & Smell are quite different. When you start putting it on it has a little 'grit' to it but that quickly melts away as you work it into your skin (I apply cream with my fingers). It has the slightest smell of oats to me, which I find quite pleasing. Once I finish applying the cream and blending, it does feel a little tacky/sticky so I just top it off with Mineral veil and it's perfect. I consider myself between Fair & Medium (Probably a little darker then light) with a warm/neutral undertone and have combination acne prone skin. I previously used 'Neutrogena Skinclearing Oil-Free Makeup' in 'Classic Ivory 10' for years but that foundation was too light and triggered my allergies often. So far no allergic reactions nor increased acne with PF Organic CC Cream. Right now my basic make-up routine is this CC Cream with the Organic Wear Mascara & Organic Wear Blush/Bronzer Combo Compact (Not sold at ULTA Sadly) I love these products and no longer feel any guilt or discomfort putting on make-up. All are good for my skin and don't have harsh chemicals, don't trigger my allergies, and no one can ever tell I'm wearing any make-up at all. It's great. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.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

The price is also very reasonable and I would definitely recommend this product to other people. Nederlands: Fantastisch product! Het past heel goed bij mijn huidskleur.

"I just love this product! I'm not one for a matte finish on my face nor an overtly illuminated face either. This BB powder gives my skin a great inner glow/dewy, non sweaty look that keeps my face looking fresh. Eventhough I apply broad spectrum sunscreen moisturizer on my face and neck before I apply my makeup I really appreciate the fact that this has a broad spectrum SPF so I'm making sure that my face is 100% protected from the UVA & UVB rays. I use my Eco Tools Bamboo powder brush to apply it for an even and gorgeous application. I haven't tried or would recommend a dense brush like the one supplied with the product. I think it would be overkill on the illumination and cause disco ball face. LOL! I also like to "set" my makeup with a light mist of the Caramance Pure Facial And Body Water or the Mario Badescu Facial Spray. I use the Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray only if I'll be out in the sun for more than 1 hour. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="7787381702701497717-full" data-show="7787381702701497717-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

"I am not an expert at makeup, nor am I a constant user. I have been looking for light cover for my reddish/blotchy skin, as well as oil control, dryness from my combination skin, and my adult acne. This product has won me over. I bought and used the Light/Medium bottle. I made sure to apply moisturizer, then a primer -NYX Pore Filler- , and then applied the BB cream with my second and middle finger; it blended seamlessly into my skin. I dotted over my red areas, under eyes, and blemishes for additional coverage. I didn't need to add a powder, dust with anything or used any additional products. There are no splotches of makeup, redness, enlarged pores due to the product, and it dry patches over my combo areas. The smell is light and a little goes a long way. As an average, uneducated makeup user, learning how to apply and use from try and see, this BB cream is amazing. If you struggle with oily, combination skin, large pores, redness; and want something easy to use without complicated steps, please give this a try." - ulta user
"This thing honestly is amazing! I have no idea how it is so cheap yet SO GOOD! I (and I can't stress this enough) freakin LOVE it! It goes smoothly on skin, blends like a dream, decent amount of coverage, makes skin look dewy and nice without settling into fine lines and making pores look big. I mean.. this is the real deal! It also blends nicely with other products, for example, for more coverage I blend it together with a drier concealer (I don't like the look of heavy makeup), and it just looks like skin! I purchased Light-Medium and it has a bit of a golden undertone so makes me more tan than I am, but that's no problem. ALSO, it doesn't make my skin break out! 5* all around from me!" - beautybay 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'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
"My neighborhood Walgreens recently added Iman Cosmetics to their shelves and I reintroduced myself to the brand. I had experience with Second-to-None foundation when the line made its debut which was a while ago. For me it became an out of sight out of mind thing for buying the brand as it wasn't in any stores which I shop for cosmetics. To make a long story short I purchased the BB Cream and powder-to-cream CC concealer. My coloring in Iman's line is generally Clay # 2 and sometimes #1. Based on Iman's website color match guide I went with Clay Medium. It was the correct choice. I am over 60 years old but my complexion does not require a full coverage foundation for everyday. I am impressed with this BB cream as most I've tested are too heavy feeling and often the colors for dark skintones is mediocre. It's an ideal lightweight hint of color and skincare. It is not intended to give cover any and everything foundation like coverage, so if you require spot coverage you can alway apply a heavier foundations to those spots. However, if a natural, your skin but nicer look is the goal, this BB cream should be just enough for everyday wear. I am very happy to see my neighborhood Walgreens stock a quality brand targeted to women of color. The prices are a little higher than most other brands on drugstore shelves, but still lower than prestige department store brands which do offer a wide range of color options suitable for women of color." - walgreens user
"This BB Cream is closer to an actual tinted moisturizer than most other BB Creams are. My box actually says it is a tinted moisturizer on the front, although the box pictured on the site does not. It really is. You don't want to use moisturizer under this or it'll make your face oily. I tried wearing it with a moisturizer under it (one of Burt's Bees actually) and it was oily and weird looking from the beginning. I finally decided I didn't need a moisturizer with it and it looks much better.It feels and looks like a light foundation, and lacks the heavy feeling of a real foundation, while still smoothing out my face and covering up some pink. Comparing it to the BB Foundation, it's much more suited for oily skin tones, while the foundation is suited for normal and dry skin. It smells nice as well, which is a good thing for Burt's Bees because of their natural ingredients- usually stuff smells weird.My suggestion for using it is to use your hands to spread it on like you would a moisturizer (but DON'T use a moisturizer under it). Avoid beating your face with a damp sponges because they will literally just suck the product right off your face and trap it in the sponge. So use your hands, and rub it in well. Then I buff it out with a brush, and let it sit and absorb while I do my hair or put on my clothes, etc. Buff it out again, softly, then set it with powder (I use Burt's Bees- honestly I use, review, and push so much of their product line that they really oughta sponsor me!).

"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
".In the summer my skin tends to get more oily than it is in the winter leaning more towards normal/combination. This BB cream is one of Garnier’s newer products in the BB cream range – this time aimed at combination/oily skin – perfect for my summer skin type.In comparison to the other BB cream (Normal-dry skin), this BB cream is much more watery and more of a runny liquid. Sometime this can be a pain as the product can run off your hand during application.The colour of this ( light) is quite yellow toned, more suitable for more tanned skin, however does blend into my pink based skin and doesn’t look odd. In doing so this BB cream gives a medium coverage (much more than the previous BB cream) covering redness and under eye circles.The BB cream itself isn’t oily and feels smooth on the skin and doesn’t feel drying. It does claim to leave your face with no shine – it does this ( matte-i-fies the skin) yet still leaves a glow to your skin which looks natural on the skin. The bb cream blends easily into the skin and is easily buildable to provide more coverage,As for lasting power this bb cream does last longer (probably about 6/7 hours) on an ‘average day’ than Garniers bb cream for normal/dry skin ( on my normal/combination skin) however I do find this fades much faster than a foundation would. On a slightly hotter or more hectic day I do find that this will sweat off after 3-4 hours however my skin wasn’t shiny after this time(coverage had gone). The lasting power of this product however can be improved with a setting powder.When wearing this my skin doesn’t go shiny but stays with a healthy glow.Overall I much prefer this product to Garniers previous BB cream and think it is a great alternative to foundation in the summer. This is definitely a product I recommend and will be repurchasing. Less" - boots.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.

"I don't like to wear a lot of makeup but as I have gotten older, more pores have gotten bigger and I have red cheeks and nose. I have tried primers for the redness and ones for the pore size for $5-$40 and didn't think any really worked. I found this and it really helps with the pore size and has a slight tint. For someone with no redness, you can easily get away with just this most days. I dab on a little foundation on my nose and cheeks and it looks great. As a benefit, I think it helps fill in some of the fine lines as well which I never experienced with the primers I used.

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!!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user
"I went to ulta in search of a product that was light and natural yet provided enough coverage for minor blemishes all while being affordable. I swear by Urban Decay's Naked Skin foundation but needed something more economical to use for days when i'm just going to the gym or to class. I explained to one of the retail associates that i was in need of a cheap alternative that would not cause me to break out. She directed me towards physicians formula BB Cream and when I found out the entire kit was only twenty something dollars, i decided i may as well try it.I have been using this product for a week now and i am so happy with my purchase! I use this when i'm going shopping or out with my friends during the day when full coverage isnt neccessary. It covers my minor discoloration in my cheeks, and the powder goes on flawlessly. I apply a little bit of bronzer to my cheekbones and i have a great, every day face!The only cons is that it does not give full coverage so if that is what you're looking for, try a different foundation.The Concealer is a little watery and doesnt set very well, so i continue to use my urban decay concealer.Will definitely be repurchasing the cream and the powder in the future. « less" - ulta.com user

"I was really excited to try this product, as I already use Garnier’s All-In-One BB Cream and I absolutely *adore* it, and I found this product to be just as wonderful as I was expecting!I was initially surprised upon opening the box, as this tiny tube slid out and I was expecting it to be at least the length of the box, if not the width as well. However, I’ve been advised by other people who use it that this tiny tube does last a long time, so don’t be put off by the tiny size of the packaging.I first tried to roll it on straight on my skin from the tube and a little too much product came out, so I found it’s actually better to put a little bit on the tip of your finger and gently tap it in, rather than actually use the roll-on, as that way you can control better how much product you use, and you really don’t need all that much of it.The product absorbed into the skin easily and although it originally went on slightly darker than my natural skin shade, it blended in well and covered the purple (“bruise like”) shadows under my eyes (a few too many sleepless nights in a row!) really nicely. I used the All-In-One BB Cream on the rest of my face and they blended into each other seamlessly. I was really impressed that afterwards you can’t tell where one product started and other ended, as I was expecting the difference in shades to be extremely visible. The end result was a fresh-looking face like I had a proper night’s sleep! (I don’t get any bags under my eyes, though, so I can’t comment on how good this product is at hiding them). It really does illuminate your skin like it promises to, though.I was also impressed that didn’t dehydrate my skin or block my pores. I have very sensitive skin (especially under my eyes) that tends to react to almost any product (I’m even allergic to my own tears!), but this one did not cause a reaction. It also does not have a strong smell, or rub off, and is fairly easy to remove at night.My skin loves it and so do I! I would definitely recommend it! « less" - boots.com user
"Living in the desert I'm always on the search for a face cream to keep my skin hydrated, but not oily to the touch, or greasy looking! It's so important to lather in the proper amount of sunscreen and your face should be the top priority in this Vegas SUN! If we are making a skin care wish list, then I also prefer a product that does not irritate my skin, stays on throughout my day or night activities and washes away easily after use!Garnier's BB Cream was recommended to me by one of my many friends who visit me here in Fabulous Las Vegas. She has heard me complain about this desert heat reaping havoc on my face and the importance of sun block more times than we can count. So when she tells me to, "try this, it has SPF 15 in it", she smiled bright knowing I'm pleased with her new "find" with the proper sun protection. She knows I can't say no to trying new things also! So, I used this BB cream the rest of her vacation stay, quite possibly more than she herself used it and.... I was sold, maybe even a FAN for life!I have more of my personal experiences with the newly discovered skin cream to share because sharing is caring.......so keep reading to hear more perks!This is my go to morning day cream because it gives me hours of moisturized skin and the perfect glow. If you are a fan of the fresh face look, like me then you will appreciate a better-looking appearance and honestly, who remembers to take care of their skin during summer adventures....you are relaxing outdoors, lounging at the beach, and playing chicken on some hot guy's shoulders at the pool. You are NOT remembering the sunscreen, and you should because you want good skin when you are older!So the #1 reason I love this product is that you can use it as sunscreen (at least 15 minutes before being exposed to the sun and then re-apply every 2 hours as needed). And, there is not a day I don't need sunblock and a great moisturizer for my face, and now I get both plus Anti Aging protection....all in one bottle. They call it Garnier's 5-in-1 Miracle Skin Perfector, but I like to call it just BB Cream or the best skin lotion every.It's worth it, all 5 shiny stars worth it! « less" - Garnier 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 started using this about 1 week ago, and my skin did have to adjust to it. At first, it seemed as though I had a few more pimples and red marks than usual, but I can happily say it was just temporary and my skin has never looked better. I also started using the Pore Refining exfoliating cleanser around the same time, and that combination has done wonders for my skin. Having made no other changes in my skin care routine, my skin looks better now than it has in 10 years. It's much clearer, I have no pimples, my pores are reduced, my skin is much smoother, and many previous acne scars and sun spots have significantly faded. I normally have to apply concealer to several spots on my face, but I now only have to apply it to one or two, dust on some Neutrogena mineral powder, and I'm ready to go. In the hot FL weather, I do have to blot my face a few times during the day, but it's not a real concern - I have to do that usually with any other foundation/powder. Try this - you won't be sorry! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Target user
"This BB cream is awesome because it's more like a medium-coverage foundation with a built-in highlighter. It's the BB cream you'll want to use if you wear a full face of foundation every single day. The formula is thick, though, so tap it on with a Beautyblender sponge for even coverage. It leaves skin hydrated, even, and best of all, superglow-y. (For real.) If you're not a fan of dewy skin, then this BB cream is not for you. The sheen it leaves on skin is noticeable, but even our editors with oily skin loved the look. The bonus of SPF 20 is great, but that's not strong enough for every day. Be sure you layer another sunscreen with SPF 30 or 50 underneath." - ebay.com user
"I cannot quit you, Garnier BB Cream! I currently have a pricier CC cream (It) and two pricier foundations (both Clinique) and I keep coming back to this bb cream. I just love it that much. The CC cream is okay, but it is fuller coverage cream. The two Clinique foundations are fine if I also want more coverage, but without any skin nutrients in them. This BB Cream does brighten my skin and even out my tone, and I have rosacea and I'm almost 50. I dislike that this cream isn't more inclusive in their shade offerings, as everyone of various skin tones should be able to use this cream and enjoy the benefits of using something that helps their skin. I probably should give them 4 stars for a lack of diversity in shades, but I just love this stuff so much. The ingredients listing is a little long for my taste, but the ingredients are not too bad...especially the top 5 (which make up 80% of the product anyway). Please note that I do like to take care of my skin. I double cleanse at night, use my retinol serum (Neutrogena) every single night, and like to mask frequently. So, I'm a believer in good skin and letting it shine through. And I do have acne scars and uneven pigmentation with my rosacea. However, even with all of that, I love this cream. It is a sheer coverage and works well to cover what I need most. I highly recommend this product." - ulta user
"Let me first point out that my history with tinted moisturisers and BB creams have been BAD. Let me also point out I don't have a wrinkle anywhere on my face and I can't give feedback on that claim.Overall though, this product is really fantastic. I've used it every single day since I got it and I've had compliments every single one of those days.My skin is very dry so I tend to use an extra moisturiser under it but as the weather has warmed up I have used it on its own and its worked fantastically.The cream itself gives barely any coverage but does a fantastic job of evening out my skin tone and generally making my skin look very very nice. It gives you a natural but better look that I am always going for.Could not recommend this highly enough, even if you are like me and normally avoid Nivea products like the plague (the basic products always break me out really really badly) « less" - Boots.com user
"I love this argan oil- when the humidity decreases during the winter in Texas, my hands and lips tend to become so chapped that they crack and sometimes bleed; my face also becomes dry and it feels horrible. This oil has helped my skin stay moisturized and I've experienced little to no chapped, dry skin, which is awesome. I use this product every other day, and it hasn't made my skin oily- it just seems to restore the way my skin usually feels when the atmosphere isn't so dry, and my skin sucks this product up very quickly. I also love the blush- a very sweet pink color- but I haven't used the bb cream- maybe I'll do that this weekend." - ulta user
"I am very satisfied with this CC Cream. Is is a bit more "dense" than what I am used to with other CC Creams, but it's not an issue. It offers a good amount of coverage and blends easily ( I use my fingers). The only thing I can notice is that it may on ocasions make pores more visible, if not blended well. I noticed it ony when I am not using a primer and if I apply too much/blend poorly. All in all, I can honestly recommend it to anyone who doesn'r want/need a foundation, but still would like to cover up redness or minor imperfections. " - no.lookfantastic.com user
"Right after I purchased my first tube of BB cream then they came out with CC creams! Needless to say my BB cream got used a few times before I switched to Almay smart shade CC cream and am very pleased with it! I don't typically like using heavy makeup products on a daily basis so this CC cream is great because it feels really lightweight on my skin but still covers the minor discoloration and blemishes that I do have. It absorbs very well and stays in place all day without me needing to reapply. It makes my skin slightly oily by the end of the day but I use a lightweight powder along with this CC cream to absorb the oil and I use an all over face primer so it doesn't settle into my face creases by the end of the day. I love how this CC cream also moisturized my skin while it covers which saves me a lot of time and effort. I would highly recommend this CC cream, Almay smart shade is one of the best I have tried! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - viewpoints.com user
"I don't wear base make up during the day, it breaks me out. I apply concealer to any blemishes and redness and thats it but I'm starting to need a little more coverage. Foundation just isn't an option for me, I can feel it on my skin and by the end of the day my skin feels dirty and is without fail, at least one spot up on that morning. I've been using Garnier BB Blur Cream Light 40ml for almost a week and really really like it. I wear it over sunscreen so I don't find it dries out my skin, but it probably wouldn't be moisturising enough for me on its own. The cream sinks straight in and corrects skin tone without any need for extra concealer. It's very natural looking and does improve the appearance of larger pores and disguises redness - my skin even looks better without it. My skin is reasonably fair but not porcelain and the colour is a perfect match even though I only apply it to my T-zone, cheeks and chin. It's very light and doesn't feel as though you're wearing anything at all, it lasts all day and night even in the heat. Perfect for light coverage during the day, I'll be buying it again for sure. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Boots.com user
"I've tried a bunch of western-style BB creams (Clinique, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Smashbox, etc.), and found that they are all waaaaaay too moisturizing/greasy for my mostly oily skin. The Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector is the best one I've found so far. It doesn't settle into my pores or fine lines, it doesn't cake up on those rare little dry patches that I get this time of year (winter), it provides perfect light coverage (it actually does cover), and most of all: it doesn't make my face look like the Exxon Valdez dropped anchor. This is perfect- just shy of matte. Thank you SO MUCH Revlon, for realizing that some people have oily or combination skin. We'll see how it works in the summer, but for now- it's ideal. Thank you Revlon." - drugstore.com user
"I started using Garnier B.B cream about a year ago, and never looked back at any other foundations. i love that the cream is light, non greasy and has a great all over coverage. You only need a small amount of the cream to apply, and it spreads and covers great. For the price of this product i would recommend it to basically everyone. They have different shades for all skin types light/medium medium/dark ect. With only needing a small amount to cover, the tube of makeup lasts a lot longer then most foundations. Once you apply and let it dry, its there to stay without the worry of it rubbing off into your shirt or anything else. i like that the product looks natural and doesnt leave your face looking or feeling shiny.
