I have combination, acne-prone, quite acne scarred skin. I needed something for every day use. I needed something to pop on before heading out to run errands. I found it with this! I was sick of looking cakey with normal foundations, especially during day time. This is now my no makeup day makeup! It feels light and blends easily on my face. It reduces my redness and "blurs" my skin issues. Its the makeup for those that don't want to look like they are wearing makeup! My only small issue is the colour choices for my coloured skin. medium is to light, and dark, well is to dark. I use both combined to get the right colour for me, which Id prefer not to as its costly. But I will continue to use it! I love it!

My ultimate beauty product. I just bought my 3rd tube and I haven't looked back. I needed something natural looking for everyday use and when I found this I was so happy! Nothing wrong with it, however In wish it came in the shade fair like the Maybelline dream fresh bb, but oh well.

Ok for its price
I bought this BB cream from the drugstore because it was on sale and it claimed to be for 'acne prone skin'. It is easy to apply, blended well with my skin but is WAY too oily even it's suppose to be 'oil-free'. My face feels sticky after applying this BB cream if I put a tissue over it, I can see all the product coming off and the coverage is quite minimal too. I only use this on my good days when my skin is quite clear. I usually apply a thin layer and top it with powder so it's less sticky. I wish they have a darker tone because I use the Medium shade and it's still too light for me even though I have pale skin. Overall, it's worth the money but I probably won't repurchase because I need something that makes my face less oily.

really happy with this bb!
Okays here goes.. I have tried like 3-4 different BB creams! Searching for the right one for my skin! & I think I have FINALLY came across one I actually LIKE!& it even makes me feel comfortable enough to take my lazy days outside the house with out having to put all my makeup on! the coverage isn't that great at first.. but i just add more to where I see fit & boom! skin looks flawless.. blends great with some powder over the top & a little blush/bronzer & a great pink lippy! all in a quarter of the time it takes me to normally do my makeup! & know it has the 2% salicylic acid to help with any blemishes I may have as well as all the other good stuff to help moisturise ect.. all packed into this bottle of heaven! makes me more inclined to use it everyday!
Although I don't think it is a good Matte finish I find that I still look a little shiny.. but its perfect once I use my 'Matte Maker - Presses Powder" lightly over the top (:
when wearing this it feels nice smooth & light on my skin which I really love!! gives me a very nice comlplextion! & I do recommend this to anyone searching for the right bb cream for them!

Best I have tried so far
I bought this as I was going on a holiday & didn't want to wear foundation every day but still wanted a little bit of coverage. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
The packaging is super cute & a good size, the consistency is good and blends in easily. Coverage is just what I was looking for, not too heavy but masked my redness and evened out my skin tone well. Personally I liked this better than the garnier and natio options I had tried prior to this! Highly reccomend for light everyday coverage

Back and Forth!
I used to love this BB Cream as it's great for oily skin, although now it makes my skin look really pink and almost ghostly! I have to be really sparse with it. I originally tried this product as I received some samples and I loved it so I purchased in Medium. I'm not sure if something changed as the pink undertones are so noticeable now!

long lasting, bb, tried, tested, review
This was the first product I tried in the BB line foundations - it's quite something that a product now just needs to be activated into foundation by being rubbed into skin. I was quite amazed at how BB cream's work.
I really like that Dream Pure BB Cream rubs in so easily and gives you a creamy look finish. The 002 medium fitted well with my skin and I have a olive tan completion.
Maybelline advise for best results to apply a thin layer on skin which can be used with or without a moisturiser.
For me this wasn't the case, I believe you need to go over those areas of concern twice to really get a good cover up which for me is fine as I am very used to do that but with the use of a concealer underneath this would be a one layer application.
One thing to note is that you don't have to reapply this product throughout the day - it lasts!
I quite like the different packaging for this product, its very well thought together with the colors as they really appear to me and I would be someone who picks this up off the shelf because it's eye catchy.

Great for oily skin
I love this product. I tend to get oily and this still seems to stay through the day. I really like the added bonus of salicylic acid. I ran out of this and tried another one, then started to break out. I can only assume the salicylic acid in this product was doing it's job as when I returned to this, no more break outs. My only downside to this would be that it could have just a touch more coverage and be available in a slightly darker tone.

light and natural looking
the best bb cream i have ever come across. i have always hated foundations because they make me sweat and feel like i have a mask on bu this one is so different. it glides on just like any moisturiser and counteract my oily skin making it appear more matte which i love. covers pimples, masks pores and redness and blends with my natural skin tone so it stays looking natural. the price rocks too and you only need a tiny bit as it goes a long way so lasts ages. looooooove it.

Amazing for acne prone combination skin - great mixed with foundation!
I love this BB cream. I admit I haven't tried a whole bunch of them, but once I tried Maybelline's Dream Pure BB, I didn't look back! I wear this to the gym to provide medium coverage for my acne scars. I find it smoothes out my imperfections quite well, then I use a concealer to cover my red marks. It can emphasise dry patches though, so moisturise well before applying! I wear this daily mixed with my foundation, as it makes application smoother, and the SPF is a great bonus. It's also an affordable price! Will continue wearing this in winter as my skin will require more moisture :)
