Fantastic Go-To Product!
I have been trialling both the Light & Medium shades and have loved them both. The light shade is more suited to my skins natural colour so this would have to be my favourite. I found mixing the medium with a bit of thick sunscreen can help lighten the shade with does make it more greasy and you really need to use a good powder over the top to stop the shine. But in the warmer months this shade would work well on its own for me as it's not that much darker.
This product gives great coverage and smooths out the surface of your skin giving you a flawless finish without looking fake. The scent is really beautiful actually, it is like a light fragrant perfume which is quite slight but very pretty and non irritating.
I adore the lovely golden brown tube and find it super easy to use and apply. It is very affordable and I would purchase this in the future as it is my go to BB Cream for almost everyday.
It minimises my pores and doesn't make me break out even though it contains SPF and moisturiser which can feel a little slick at the end of the day. But a little powder touch up only once throughout the day is all you need and it does a great job at lasting the whole day.
A fantastic product that is great value & agrees with my skin. It is almost like the Light shade was specially formulated to exactly match my skin's colour. Amazing!

This product is a disappointment. It didn’t cover up my skin effectively; my face looked patchy and uneven, even after putting on powder. The colors are too dark, also, because I purchased the light shade to match my skin but is was way too dark for me. In effect, I had a hard time blending.

Not for me
This was my first try of a BB cream, and I won't be rushing to try another. I used the product once, and then threw it in the bin - very unusual for a thrifty person like me. Lucky I got it on special. The light shade was too light for me, but because I had tested it on my hand in store, I now know that my hands are paler than my face! The product went on smoothly enough, but it made the pores on my chin look as though they had been filled with gunk. Not the look I am going for.

This creamy base has a good consistency preventing stickiness, though the coverage is a bit light, it does not cover the skin as great as expected, not too suitable with people with flaws. It leaves my skin with a slight shiny layer but after a setting powder, it tends to look more natural

Not a miricle in sight
I bought this product when it first came out as it was the only BB cream on the market in Australia at the time. I found it really average. It didn't smooth evenly on my skin and after wearing for just 10 minutes my skin was look patchy and like I rubbed dirt on my face. I chucked it out and went back to foundation. I decided to try it again recently and it was not any better. There is not enough selection of colours and all the colours I tried seemed wrong. The only way I can use this product is mixed in with a foundation for a dewy look, it looks terrible worn alone. Would not recommend at all, not worth the money and makes your skin look worse, definitely not perfect like the product describes. I would recommend Ponds or Maybelline Dream Fresh over this product.

Suited for Winter
This stuff is great - for use in Winter. My skin can be quite oily in the warmer months and this BB cream encourages more oil, but in Winter it's the perfect amount.

This is the first BB cream I have tried and I really like it. It has have nice light coverage and the smoothness of my skin. However I have found that now I am at the end of my tube that my face is getting a oily shine during the day, which I do not normally get and am having to use power over the top. I would also prefer a higher SPF, but would still happily buy this product again.

I am disappointed with this product because the color name doesn’t reflect on the actual color. I bought lighter color to match on my skin tone but when I applied it, the liquid was orangey and I really find it hard to blend it well to my skin. I just wasted my money to this product.

Compared to my tinted moisturiser this cream is quite thick, making it hard to blend and match my skin. I purchased this BB cream in the medium shade as I have olive skin, however I find that this shade has a prominent orange tinge to it. The plus side is that this cream offers GREAT coverage to the extent that it kind of acts like a concealer. The smell is pleasant and is not overpowering.

Great for very dry skin.
While I was taking roaccutane, and therefore my skin was as dry as the desert, this bb cream looked amazing on me. It gave me a glowing, dewy, medium coverage that I found to be buildable on the areas that needed more coverage (acne scarred areas mostly). I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with less dry skin though. If you are very dry, this is a great option for you.

Best In Beauty 2013
I received sample sachets of this BB cream and didn't find it to be of very good quality. It's very affordable but that's probably because of what's in it...
I found the light shade (which is me) was still too orangey and fake looking, I had to do extreme blending to get away with wearing it. I also found it was not hydrating at all and left dry patchy areas in my face and the smell....it was strongly scented and not pleasant.
