I picked up some Maybelline BB Cream. If you read my blog regularly or watch me on Youtube you know that I’m interested in BB creams. I’m also a Maybelline fan so of course I was excited to try this.
They had a tester in the store so I was able to pick my shade easily. I really appreciate a tester, don’t you? I got the shade light/medium. I’m an NC 20, if that helps. The next time I may get the light shade though. Its such a sheer color that it really doesn’t matter all that much.
Here is what Maybelline says about it:
“Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Sheer Tint 8-In-1 Skin Perfector is the one-step wonder for good skin everyday. Get eight skin benefits in one simple step: blurs imperfections, brightens, evens skin tone, smoothes, hydrates, enhances and protects with SPF 30.”
This is a good basic moisturizer. Its oil free and gives sheer coverage. It’s also got an SPF 30, which I appreciate. It blurs imperfections as much as any other tinted moisturizer. It evens the skin tone some, but if you have anything that you need to cover, you will need concealer. If your skin is really uneven you will still need foundation. It brightens your face as much as any other tinted moisturizer does. This is not a miracle product, by any stretch of the imagination, but I will still repurchase it as a basic moisturizer because I like it for that purpose.
I don’t believe this cream rises to the level of a traditional Asian BB cream. Its not going to permanently lighten your skin or treat it beyond what a basic moisturizer would. It is oil free and does not make my skin as oily as the Garnier BB cream does. I think this is a better choice for people with oily skin.
It retails for around $8. You can get it at drugstores. The price will vary slightly depending on where you buy it.
I hope you found this review helpful!
