My Thoughts: I've never been much of a BB cream user. I've only ever used medium to full coverage foundations, so the thought of leaving my skin so "bare" was really hard for me to get over. However, this BB cream totally changed the way I view them, and now I've been snapping up different brands to see how they all compare.
I received this small size in one of my beauty box subscriptions many moons ago and only recently decided it was high time I see what all the buzz about BB creams was. I found this to have the most coverage of any brand that I've tried so far, and I wish it was a bigger sample! I used it all up very quickly, although I did get four full face applications from this tiny tube.
It has a great amount of coverage, and it felt amazing on my skin. It soaked in quickly with no residue and didn't smell heavy like sunscreen as some other brands I've since tried. It left my skin looking perfectly even and naturally dewy. I only needed a bit of concealer under my eyes and a light dusting of powder to set. I also found that it lasted all day with really no touch ups needed.
My skin is pretty dry, and this kept my face hydrated but stayed in place. I'm not sure how it would do for more oily skins.
Final Verdict: I wish the price wasn't on the higher end compared to drugstore brands, but this does definitely do a far better job. I'd be more than willing to pay the price for this product and use it in the summer when I'm not looking for a full face coverage every day.
