Product Review: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

Hello everybody! Here's my review on The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector.



Product Description:

The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector also has Titanium Dioxide Sunscreen (Broad Spectrum SPF 30). It's ideally suited for normal skin. The BB cream helps to blur imperfections; it hydrates and brightens skin; it evens out the skin tone; it smooths and enhances skin. It protects with SPF 30; and it has 0% oils and heavy ingredients. 

Directions:

For best results, apply smoothly and evenly to your face and blend with your fingertips.

Rating:


After trying this product for 3 days consecutively I have to say it does a decent job. I give it a 3.5/5. I apply it over moisturizer because I don't believe it doubles for that purpose. I apply a drop of it about the size of a dollar coin (or dime sized if you're American). It evens out the skin tone as best as it can but still remains sheer and natural looking AFTER it sets. When you first apply it, it does look a little dark but once it sets it looks different. It dries matte which is a plus but if you have oily skin or some areas of the face perspire/oil up, you may want to set the bb cream with a powder. 

This is by NO means close to the coverage of foundation or concealer. If you're into natural looking makeup you can use the bb cream as a foundation, then apply concealer, face powder and do your eyes, lips and cheeks for a day time fresh faced make up look. At first I was unsure of the price because I thought the packaging was too small but I've come to see that a little goes a long way. The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector costs $1012.50(JMD) plus tax for 30ml/1.0 FL. OZ of product. There are 5 shades available and if you want to get an idea of what it will look like on your skin, I use the Medium/Deep Sheer Tint which is the 4th shade in the line. It blends well but I may also give the Deep Sheer Tint a try in the future.

Try this product out!

Peace, Love & Blaze,
