This product is great! It's good for days where you don't want to wear much make up or your skin is sensitive and has blemishes. It covers blemishes while moisturizing and healing your skin! Leaves your skin looking matte but not flat, a bit dewy. Looks natural. This is my favourite BB cream out of them all!

Ideal for

Oily/combination skin

A surprising staple

I never thought much of the generic 'big brand' cosmetic companies and their base makeup stemming from my awkward skin teen years where everything clogged up my pores.

I was coerced into purchasing this as a friend said it was amazing and said she had tried nothing like it before. I bought it, dubious that it would work for me. It sat unopened in my bathroom for months before I decided to give it a go.

I regret not using it sooner! It's light, it evens out my skin tone with just that touch of colour, it's very low coverage but it stays on all day and does the job nicely. I don't know how much the 2% salicylic acid does but I don't really care - I have other skincare to cover those needs. I can just slap this on my skin in a rush and it looks great or I can use a primer, a couple of layers of this to build up the coverage and a bit of powder for a more 'made up' look. Both ways look and feel great. I apply with my fingers most days, or I buff out with a brush for a flawless look.

Very east to remove when cleansing and it does not clog pores whatsoever.

I'd suggest this to anyone. It's an inexpensive option to an even looking complexion.

Fantastic BB Cream

I love the consistency of this product, liquidy, not thick at all unlike other drugstore, western BB Creams I have tried in the past. This makes it easy to mix with other BB Creams to get your ideal shade. It is affordable and lasts a while, a little goes along way. I use the medium shade (I admit it is a bit light, but that is expected), which evens out my skin tone and provides good coverage as far as BB Creams go. This is comparable to my Korean Etude House BB Cream, except suits my skin tone much better. This product is light and does not feel like makeup at all.


Apply any acne treatments or additional sunscreens first

My go to BB Cream

I'm very conscious of my acne scars and hyper-pigmentation and I simply refuse to leave the house without some form of good coverage. I love this BB cream because it provides good coverage will also working to improve the health of my skin. I have oily skin with large pores but I find that for a BB cream it sits really nicely and doesn't just melt off my face. I have actually worn it to work in the place of foundation, which says a lot because I am very concerned about my appearance.
I love that it is so affordable and also easily accessible - I just pick up a new tube when I do my grocery shopping! :)


Try it as a 'primer' under your foundation for a full coverage look

All rounder

Great for light coverage, moisturising and colour correction. This product is an excellent BB cream, I usually find that I don't like BB creams and always resort back to foundation but this particular cream applies on the skin well and feels light and hydrates the skin very well. This cream assists with everyday colour corrections and although it isn't enough to cover large blemishes does what is required for everyday use.

Pretty good product overall

I have pretty persistent acne and months and months of post-inflammatory pigmentation on my face. I though it would be a good idea to try a BB cream so I can have an extra bit of salycic acid on my face.

Firstly I really like the packaging, its really easy to squeeze out the exact amount of product that you want. I put it straight onto my make-up brush and it glides on very easily. I use medium for my olive skin and its a very good shade for me. Looks way better on that the colour that comes out of the tube.

As for coverage I would say it does a good job not a great job. Not because its not a good product but I think just because my pigmentation is that bad. So I put a concealer on and then seal it with a makeup finisher.

I have bought my second tube so im pretty happy with it.

My HG everyday foundation

This is my third tube, so you know how much I love it :)
- Product in a tube, so you can control the amount you take.
- Blend very well. I used to use my finger to blend, but now I use dampened BeautyBlender and it works wonderfully.
- Light on the skin
- Not making me looking greasy, just slightly dewy, which I really love
- Last quite well, 6-7h still looking good. I also don't experience any oxidisation.
- 2% salicylic acid for acne treatment
- Price very affordable. I never pay full price because Priceline/Chemist Warehouse/Coles/Woolies has them on sale very often.

- Only 3 shades to choose from. I'm quite lucky that shade Medium fits me perfectly, but it may be hard for others to find a matching shade.

I have acne and scarring on my face and its has a nice average coverage and not too thick. Its easy to apply and I use it almost everyday. I use this instead of normal liquid foundations. Makes my skin feel like I'm not wearing any make up. I use this will Nude By Nature mineral cover or finishing veil.


Use a finishing veil on top.

One of my Holy Grail Products

i LOVE this product. i usually wear a strong coverage foundation so was pleasantly surprised when i found this gives more than a veil of coverage. the salicylic acid i have on to actually improve my skin. it is light enough to wear on its own, or is a brilliant base before foundation. i use the medium shade and one tube with daily use lasts me 4+ months


use over a base with moisturiser.

Perfect a natural look!

I really love this BB cream! It provides a really nice amount of coverage! I really prefer this one with 2% salicylic acid in it than Maybelline's other BB cream. I find this gives me a lovely matte yet dewy look.
This is perfect for natural flawless makeup! Would definitely recommend!
