For younger looking skin with less effort

I was skeptical about BB creams but I thought I'd try it out when Shiseido came out with one. I only use Shiseido for my face. They didn't have the light color at first so I tried the medium, which was too dark. When the light came out, I got it and it is perfect. My face has gotten drier as I've gotten older (late 40s) and I now need something to put on my face to make it look more even, to moisturize it, protect from the sun (been getting age spots) and give it a hint of brightness (been experiencing dullness). So this is perfect as it has everything and it works for me as I'm not a morning person and I usually have to dash out the door to work really quickly. My face looks younger with a healthy glow. And even at the end of the day, my face still looks fresh and dewy with no dry spots or oily spots. If I do want to put a bit of blush or eye shadow on, it's easy to put on top of it. I love this product. Please don't stop making it. For comparison, I tried Shideido's Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector and that one by the end of the day my nose is shiny and oily even though I have dry skin. So the BB cream works best for me. « less

Covers imperfections, skin looks better

I cannot believe how beautiful my skin looks when I use this BB cream. It covers little brown spots and large pores but it is not heavy. It feels light as air. My skin looks much better when I use this BB cream, without looking unnatural. I like to wear this outdoors too because it has a good sunscreen. I don't like to wear too much makeup and with this BB cream, I can just put it on and run out the door. There are only 2 shades so far, and I wear "dark" even though I am not that dark. I hope Shiseido releases more shades so more women can wear it. I also recommend this for normal to oily skin because unlike other BB creams I have tried, it dries down to a more matte finish than others. I would not recommend this for very dry skin.

Gorgeous glowing skin

I tried other BB creams before buying this one from Shiseido. I chose Shiseido's BB cream because it feels light as a feather, covers minor imperfections including large pores, and makes my skin tone look even. It is not sticky like other BB creams. The finish is impeccable. I like the narrow tube packaging because I travel a lot. This is the best makeup product I have bought in years. Now I can just put this BB cream and run out of the house. It's that good. I recommend this for people with normal to oily skin, slightly dry ok too. But I do not recommend it for very dry skin. If you have very dry skin, the Clarins BB cream will be better for you. I tried it too and the result is almost identical but it was a bit more emollient.

The smell!

I am really surprised by all the 5 star reviews for this product. It has an incredibly strong, perfume-y smell - my husband could smell it on me an hour after I applied it! I was conscious of this all day, and didn't even want to kiss my baby while wearing it as it is so chemically. I have combination skin and found the finish to be very drying, and the medium shade is too dark for fair skin. Not even worth one star!

This stuff is awesome!!

When I first bought this, it was the first bb cream I had ever tried. I loved it but when it was gone, I decided to try a couple others to see what I thought. Big mistake. I won't get into which ones I tried but the first totally broke my skin out and the next had that cakey foundation look, both were more expensive than this one. After going back to Shiseido, I saw such a huge difference. This bb cream looks so natural but still gives my skin a hydrated, healthy glow. I use the medium and even though I'm a little on the lighter side, it blends perfectly. It doesn't clog my pores, it covers my freckles, the product goes a long way, and when paired with a bronzer I feel like I have youthful, beautiful skin at 35! Will not be changing this again!!!
