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.

Ideal for

Oily/Combination skin

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!

Nice but not my thing

I bought this due to the fact it had salicylic acid in it as I suffer from acne. I thought it was going to be one of the best BB creams I had ever used because of all the media hype but it wasn't.

I love that it gives a nice coverage but it felt like it was way to heavy and thick for a BB cream. Other BB creams I have tried have always felt light but never thick like this one. Another thing I liked about it was it last all day which great because other BB creams I have used tend to fade through out the day. It sometimes looked cakey which I don't like because BB creams are meant to look as natural as possible.

I would recommend this to people that have problematic skin because of the salicylic acid but for me I will not be buying this again.

Bye bye blemishes

I love how I can apply this without needing any primer. It minimises the appearance of my pores and reduces shine while adding a nice tint of colour to my complexion without it looking heavy or orange like some others.

Tinted moisturisers and BB creams usually aren't meant to last through thick and thin, otherwise they can get drying and may reverse the benefits they are supposed to claim. So I'm not fussed too much about staying power. For me, it has lasted a good 5 hours, which is fine.

My skin even seems to look better after using this product over a few days. It seems to actually repair the skin, as well as cover it, so that's a plus for me.


Use a small amount, blend with fingertips and really press into the skin. Add a little more for more coverage.

Ideal for

Oily skin and large pores, combination skin

I wasn't convinced by BB creams until I tried this product and now I hunt for BB creams like it.

This comes in a 30ml squeezy tube and I use the colour medium which is a perfect match for my skin tone.

The product has a medium consistency and smells lightly of sunscreen, the finish is matte but natural at the same time.

This BB cream provides quite good coverage and is buildable, this is the first BB cream that I have actually enjoyed and I find I reach for it more often than my usual foundations.

It has good lasting power and I don't feel the need to touch up during the day or use an oil blotting sheet, I really enjoy this product and while I'm on the hunt for similar products I can see this being an item that I repurchase.

good not great

I am one of those people who cant leave the house without something on my face. BB creams are great when you need to run down to the shops or for weekends when you are looking for a natural coverage. After a while of wearing this BB cream I felt shiney and greasy and it made my pores really noticeable. The colour match to my skin was good and was easy to apply but just not long lasting.


It did last a little longer when I set it with a powder.

Ideal for

Great for a quick fix when running out the door and for short term wear :-)

Best BB I've tried!

I love this BB cream. The light one perfectly matches my skin tone and it gives pretty good coverage. But I find it does wear off after a long day at work!


I find that if you carry some translucent powder, pressed or loose, with you it will definitely make it last longer!

Ideal for

Quite light coverage so if you want something that will cover severe pigmentation and redness this might not be for you
