Good stuff

I felt the need to review Kiehl's BB cream as I've tried about 10 different brands, including Clarins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Olay, and Loreal among others before finally settling on this one. I feel like I have at least some basis of comparison and wanted to share with you all. First off, I did not find the smell to be an issue. Most BB creams with sunscreen do smell a bit like sunscreen, but for me the smell went away as soon as the cream set. It's hard to argue with SPF 50 (yay Kiehl's!) so I'll take the slight chemical odor in order to have that kind of sun protection. I'm super careful with my skin and use Obagi products with this cream, so SPF is a must. There is a slight oiliness to this product once it dries, but it's much better a what I've experienced with other BB creams. I have dry skin, so this is actually a plus for me and does NOT cause me to break out. And I put this on after a light moisturizer. For dry skin, I don't think this provides enough moisture on its own, and I've needed a little something underneath every BB cream that I've tried. Yes, the product is thick, as are pretty much all high end BB creams. This is not simply a tinted moisturizer and provides very nice coverage,hence the thickness. I have no trouble blending it, and it doesn't feel heavy on the face. The light color works well for my skin tone, which is on the fair side (ash blond/light brown hair with green eyes) . My skin is nice and smooth when I take this off. Overall, I haven't found a better BB cream, and I'm sticking with this one indefinitely. « less

perfect every day foundation

I love what this product does for my skin, and how it simplifies my daily routine. - I have sensitive skin, have always had to use a separate sunscreen with my foundation. This gives me coverage + SPF with no chemical burn so one less product application. It's a good level of SPF too. - After using for about a month, my skin does look a clearer / better. - Coverage is enough for every day. I use this in place of foundation for casual use. - The look is natural, and it's long lasting. Two things to note: - I have combination skin, which becomes dry in winter. If you have oily skin this might feel a little heavy, especially in humid climates. - Although I'm light in coloring, I use a shade darker than I would in a regular foundation. It blends well and gives a slight overall glow. I think it would look less natural in a very light shade, so you might want to go one shade darker than you normally would. Most multipurpose products are compromises - but not this one.

Could possibly be a good sunscreen

I had high hopes for this BB Cream to be my "one-stop-go-to" summer coverage product in hot Texas because of the high SPF, tint, and other skin improving benefits. I purchased the darkest "medium/deep" shade, assuming that since there wasn't a wide spectrum of colors that the formula would be blendable to slightly different shades of skin. As a darker African American female however, I found that the color was lighter than my skin tone (which I expected) but also upon application it was a struggle to get the cream color blended to my skin color. Because of that I also could not use it for any sort of buildable coverage. Lastly, the finish of the product is slightly oily and gives off a whitish undertone sheen, which probably is due to the sunscreen. Using a mattifying powder over it only controls the shine for 2-3 hours. I may continue to use up the rest of my product for the sunscreen properties, and then add a better color-matched foundation and a finishing powder on top. All in all, I gave it two stars, because for the price I was really hoping to cut down my morning routine in half.

My favorite bb cream is the kiehls color correcting bb cream! It’s got sunscreen and vitamin c. It’s $38 at Sephora but lasts so long!
