As made obvious, this post is a review on Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector!
I have this in shade Light, which is the lightest shade.
I'm going to try a new format with this review and see how it goes. I've been reading Jayne's reviews for a while now and they're always so organized. I have days, as I think we all do, when I don't feel like reading a whole lot to find out the information I want to know. Her reviews are always so easy to go through because it's so easy to find what you want to know and read it. Therefore, I was inspired to organize my thoughts in my reviews a bit more in attempt to not have them so jumbled as I feel they have been in some previous reviews.
Price: $7.44 - 8.99
Size: 1 fl. oz.
Claim: "Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-in-1 Skin Perfector is the 1-step wonder for a good skin day, everyday. Get 8 skin benefits in 1 simple step: * Blurs imperfections* Brightens* Evens skin-tone* Smoothes* Hydrates* Enhances* Protects with SPF 30* 0% oils and heavy ingredients"
Packaging: This comes in a small tube which actually surprised me because it feels so small. The cap twists off and is a squeeze tube applicator.
Scent: The scent of this is kind of like a toned down sunscreen smell. Nothing overwhelming at all and I don't smell it when it's on my face.
Coverage: This BB Cream is what it claims, a sheer tint. I wouldn't even say it has any coverage other than the small amount of tint you get. I feel it did help even my skin out some, however this is not by any means going to cover up any major skin problems. It did help to "blur" out minor problems, however.
Shade: As I said, I have the shade light. This did worry be a little because as you can see below, it comes out looking kind of yellow. However, after it was oh so easily blended out, it matched perfectly.
(Sorry, no face shots. Getting through a 'hormonal breakout')
Thoughts: This BB Cream blends very well and matches great, despite how it appears when it first comes out. It is very very light coverage, though I will say I'm really pleased with the SPF 30 it contains. When I applied this, it gave my skin a nice dewy "fresh" look to it which I liked. However, hours later that turned into an oily mess throughout my T-zone and cheeks. (I have Combination/Normal skin) Taking into consideration, it is summer and I didn't wear any powder, I still enjoyed this product.
Do I recommend it? Yes, if you don't mind very light coverage and aren't very oily.
Would I repurchase? Probably not. Not because I don't like it but because I really prefer medium coverage and the price isn't exactly desirable for sunscreen.
Thanks for reading!~♥~
