Where to Buy:  Target stores and online, Walgreens stores and Walgreens.com, Ulta stores and Ulta.com, basically wherever you buy drugstore makeup but these are my top three

My Thoughts:  I'm not sure if it's really the result of using this BB cream on a regular basis during January and February or if it's the switch to a new skincare line, but my skin is looking pretty darn good lately.  A lot of my redness has faded- which I honestly attribute to the skincare rather than this- and overall I'm looking more glowing.  This has pretty good coverage for a BB cream, a little more than a regular tinted moisturizer.  It doesn't have a strong SPF smell to it either.  I still need to make sure I'm using a moisturizer under it, but it leaves my skin with a very naturally evened complexion and a no makeup look.  I top it off with just a dusting of the Revlon Nearly Naked Pressed Powder, and I'm good to go.  Being a mom, most days I do still need some concealer under my eyes, too, but really who doesn't?  I took a regular foundation with me to Florida in January and only used it twice- New Years Eve and then for the formal night on our cruise.  The rest of the time, this got me through, which I loved. 

Since they're in the photo, I'll remark on the cleansing wipes, too.  I bough these at the same time and used the travel size of wipes to see if I liked them.  They were great, with a thick ribbed texture that gets my skin completely clean.  My only complaint is that they are very wet, and when I used them on my eye makeup some of the liquid got in my eyes if I wasn't careful.  I actually used a cotton round wrapped with the wipe and squeezed it to pull the extra fluid out, then used the cotton for my mascara and liner.

Final Verdict:  By far, this is my favorite BB cream I've tried, and being a drugstore brand I love the price!  I give it a wholehearted two thumbs up!  Great job Ponds!
