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.

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

I absolutely love this BB Cream! Before I found this product, i used several other BB Creams from Korean, considering they are known for their foundations. And while they worked great, I never found one that matched my skin all that well and many of them have grey-ish hues. Not only does this product match my skin tone well, I have oily-combination skin, and it really strays on well, given if used with the right powder.
It's not incredibly thick, and it feels very lightweight as well. If you're tired of using thick and heavy makeup, this is a great alternative. Especially for younger girls.
My one criticism is it's not great at covering large pimples/breakouts. I find, when i find a massive spot on my face, I need to use a concealer. But then again, I guess that's to be expected from something so lightweight.
Overall, a great product!
For best results, use a flat brush to apply on skin. The bottle and packaging makes it easy to use if you have no tools. It can also be used with your fingers.

Wanted to love this product
I had hoped this would be a great product for days that I didnt want to wear full makeup, but unfortunately it didnt work very well on my combination skin. There wasnt a colour that was an exact match for my skin, and although I initially loved the texture of the product I found after 2-3 hours my skin felt like it had a greasy layer over the top.
People who need minimal coverage.

helps clear up blemishes
I bought this when my chemist warehouse had a 50% off sale. I find that whenever I get breakouts - I use this instead of my usual foundation & my skin clears up in a few days - it also provides good coverage (better than my tinted moisturiser)

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!
prep face with rose hip oil first and allow to soak in (fine even for oily skin). Perfect base for BB cream to smooth over flawlessly.
