water base dr jart bb cream or any water base bb cream are usually- light-watery-looks glossy on your face so it sorta a shines- the texture of the bb cream is light as wellthe not water base bb cream is- same light- matte looking on your skin- good for combination -oily skinyou dont need a lot of bb cream just a small pump or squeeze about a fingerful is enough, use your index, middle and ring fingers to dab and pat it all over you face so the bb cream is absorbed easily into your skin, then use your fingers to smooth it out use your three fingers and smooth it outwards so it wouldnt stain your man's shirt when your on his shoulder ;)optional**if you need more coverage use a mineral loose foundation powder or concealerhowever it still absorb the dirt and in your skin throughout the day so should remove it like how you do with makeupbtw my skin is actually whiter :) since ive been super tan my whole life it lighteend my skin « less

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

i have no complaints about this bb cream but i wouldn't recommend it if your skin is super yellow or super red it has a little bit of a grayish tone but it does adapt to your skin color and that's what i love about oddly enough the cream oxidizes perfectly without making my pale skin look pink or too yellow in natural lighting

- Sephora User

once the color oxidizes on your skin you are left with a very natural medium coverage

- Sephora User

color correction

color correcting

i mix this and a few drops of the algenist green color correction drops and my skin looks flawless the whole day

- Sephora User

it left me looking dewey and provided light coverage while also color correcting my skin

- Sephora User



it sticks to dry areas and the consistency feels heavy and slimy, yet drying

- Sephora User

i have dry skin and after about 3 hours was a complete grease ball

- Sephora User



it also starts off creamy and dries with a nice natural/ semi-matte finish

medium coverage

its very luminous, light-medium coverage (you can make it as sheer as you'd like), doesn't make you oily and the packaging is amazing

- Sephora User

this product melts into the skin and has a very velvety natural finish it is buildable for more coverage tho i would say that the medium coverage looks beautiful

Transforms from dull and dry to delightfully dewy

In my opinion, BBs are one of those products that come with the loftiest of claims, offering to deliver a full array of benefits, with most falling short on at least one count. My dry, pale skin demands that beauty balms that provide moisture and sun protection (preferably with physical sunblock), even out imperfections, and serve as a longwearing base for the rest of my makeup. It's a lot to ask of one product, and once upon a time before clueless Americans like me had heard of the BB concept, I would have thought it impossible. Dr. Jart, however, delivers as promised.This is my third Jart BB. I used the Black Label Detox for awhile. It's really good, but I was looking for a bit more, as I'm less concerned with acne and more with keeping my look fresh. I switched to the Renewalist (red tube) and found it a great match for my skintone. The Renewalist coverage was just unbelievable, too: superior to virtually every foundation I've ever used while magically maintaining the healthy feeling of a skin cream. I went into a panic when I discovered it was being discontinued, and immediately went to work finding a suitable replacement.So: Premier Beauty Balm. It's not perfect for me. I use the lighter of the two shades and it's still a tad dark on my skin. And of the three Jart BBs I've used, it offers the lightest coverage. When I use this, I follow with foundation if I want perfectly even skintone and full coverage.That said, Premier gives my skin the most gorgeous, dewy, healthy glow. My skin has never glowed before, it's not even something I thought possible. I would have gladly traded for the shine of excessive oil over my flaky dryness. Yet Premier BB provides a real moisturizing boost (something I've found lacking with most other BBs) with a dewy finish that doesn't look or feel sticky or excessive. It plays well with foundation on top, and I get to keep the radiance even after it's layered underneath additional coverage.Even though it's not a perfect match for my skin, I think Premier is a standout in a crowded field of BB products. The benefits of a natural SPF, a healthy moisturizer for dry skin, and light coverage that lasts all day, along with its dreamy finish makes it well worth the price. « less

Gorgeous Satin Finish!

I have tried SO many BB creams, and returned every one, except for Urban Decay's Illuminating Beauty Balm. But I like this better...in fact, I am in LOVE with it! It is so gorgeous. It comes out of the tube with a slight grey tint, but adjusts to your skin tone beautifully. It is silky and luxurious feeling, and makes my skin glow! It provides very nice coverage, and it is buildable, but if you are used to a full-coverage foundation, it might not do the trick for you. I like light-medium, very natural looking coverage, and this fits the bill, more so than UD's. No glitter or sparkle (yay!), just a soft, dewey, illuminating, beautiful satin finish. If I look in the mirror, I might not notice how effective the coverage is and how lovely and smooth the finish and color are (because it looks SO natural!), but then I wash my face at night and really realize the difference! After washing and toning and exfoliating, I use my serums (Andalou Naturals Fruit Stem Cell Revitalize Serum, then Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Clinical Concentrate Hydration Booster), then moisturizer except in the summer, then apply Cover FX Anti-Aging Primer, then this Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm, and then my concealer (Lancome EFFACERNES Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer) under my eyes and on any other spots I might want to address. This combination seems to work very well together. I get tons of compliments on my skin! Also, it is very important to me that my bb cream is beneficial to my skin beyond a cosmetic effect, and this very much is! It has many very beneficial ingredients for your skin, including an spf of 45! I don't want to have to add sunscreen in addition to everything else. The suncreen ingredients are mineral actives (not chemical), so they are good for sensitive skin...chemical suncreens always irritate my facial skin and especially sting my eyes. So that was a big seller for me with this bb cream. I would definitely recommend trying this! And with Sephora's outstanding return policy (Thank you Sephora!) you don't have to worry about wasting your money.

Average product

I have never been a big fan of beauty balms. And I didn't really enjoy this one either. Because my skin is sensitive, my skin got red and bumpy. It is also drying on my combination/dry skin, and can therefore look blotchy on my skin. I prefer to apply it with a thick moisturizer on a non-make-up-look kind of day.

celebrate your beautiful skin!

If you don’t make it to the end of my wordy review, know that I love this. It’s got a silky, comfortable feel on the skin—I invite people to touch my cheek to feel how soft it is. The coverage is light, it spreads easily with fingers, and can be built up to a medium coverage with a brush. Most importantly, the finish is GORGEOUS. Your skin is just radiant. Not shiny. I want to label it a ‘pearl finish’. Actually now that I’m thinking of it, the words ‘luminous silk’ describe this BB to a T ;). I hung out with friends wearing only this and a touch of RiRi’s Diamond Bomb and I got a few separate, wow, you just look amazing. This was without mascara, chapstick, anything else. I thought I looked pretty rough, before the compliments came in. Another note - this does have a beautiful luminous finish, but I don’t find it at all greasy or oily. I have ‘normal’ skin and a lot of radiant-finish foundations I’ve tried have turned me into a grease ball.So my little story is I had become unhappy with my ( luxury, light coverage, ‘luminous finish’ ) foundation. I stepped my skincare routine up to an 11, and every time I put on my old foundation I just saw my glowing, healthy skin get covered up, become flat.I wanted, I needed, glowing skin. I tried mixing oil and foundation together .. ‘Ambient lighting powders’ were tried out. I now own two Farsali potions. Whatever I tried, nothing was better than what my skin looked like before I put any makeup on it. I only wanted a bit of skin tone evening to make for a better canvas, and a half-pump of light coverage foundation mixed with oil was still doing more masking my skin than showcasing.This BB had been on my radar as a possible radiant foundation. I was in a Sephora store, dipping my toe into the brown lipstick pool, when I saw this on the shelf and decided to give it a test run. I loved it instantly, admitted I wasn’t a brown lipstick person, and treated myself to Diamond Bomb to achieve pure radiance. « less

Better Than Laura Mercier's Tinted Moisturizer

I have now converted from Laura Mercier's product to this one; however, I would like to offer up a caveat. I wouldn't put too much weight behind my feedback unless your skin is like mine: combination (some dry areas, some oily areas) and sensitive. If not, then I recommend finding other people who have your same kind of skin and reading their review instead of mine.My face usually breaks out whenever I use something with sunscreen in it. Up until I tried this product, Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer was the only tinted moisturizer i could use without my face exploding. Even though some of the ingredients may be "questionable," the results seem good so far (2 weeks). My skin actually looks way better - smoother, brighter, and younger in general.Coverage -This is pretty heavy/matte coverage for a tinted moisturizer. It is even heavier than some foundations I have used in the past. I have a few darker acne spots from a month or two ago and this covers it right up. The more oily parts of my face (nose, forehead) stayed matte for a good 3-4 hours longer than any other tined moisturizer.Color -Unfortunately, this only comes in one color as of today. Unless you are this color, I recommend using another product or layering another product on top of it. I am lucky enough to have this color match me. I am usually too yellow for most pinky-beigey colors and too pink for yellow colors. Leave it to a Korean brand to get the Asian skin tone correct! We'll see how this holds up when I get a bit more tan in the summer.Price -It's a few bucks less than what I'm used to paying so I'm happy!I haven't tried the other BB Cream, but I plan to after the summer ends. « less
