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 :)

Great for dry skin!
I use this BB cream every day. While the salicylic acid didn't reduce any acne, I found it also didn't cause any (unlike other BB creams and foundations I've tried). I don't even need moisturizer or a finishing powder over this, something I love.

Made me break out :(
I initially loved this BB Cream, as it matched my skin tone perfectly, a little went a long way and the coverage was perfect - not too light but not too cakey either.
After a few days of use, I broke out in lots little pimples. I was so disappointed, as up until then I'd been loving everything about it. Have since gone back to my usual Garnier Oil Free BB cream.

Best BB cream to date
This BB cream goes on well and provides great coverage for all skin types especially those with freckles. it stays in throughout the day and doesn't wear off like other BB creams I've tried. To make it stay even longer I usually finish it off with maybellines fit me powder.

Great product, awesome coverage
This is the second BB cream I've tried and so far I'm loving it. The colour medium is a perfect match for my skin and the product provides good coverage. I usually apply lightly during the day and more heavily for evening and it doesn't appear caked on which is good. This is a really good product, cheap and readily available from chemists and supermarkets.
