Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

20 April 2014

In a post I done a while ago, I showed you guys the new BB cream I brought and said I'd do a review and today is that day!

I don't really know if I apply it right, or put enough on because when I see some people put BB cream on, they use loads! But I only use a bit.

I tend to wear BB cream when my skin is quite good but just needs a little coverage. It has a light coverage but I'm sure you can build it up, but then you may as well use foundation I personally feel.

I usually wear it for school as well, but I've noticed that the earlier I wake up the blotchier my face is, I don't know if everyone gets this though and is just a normal thing. This means that when I put it on though it doesn't completely give my face an even skin tone, but as I get on through the day my skin become even and looks really natural. Also since I have really dry skin, I like the fact that it claims to hydrate all day, I'm not so sure if it does do this, but it definitely doesn't dry out my skin!
It claims to:

  • Blur imperfections
  • Brighten
  • Even skin tone
  • Sooth
  • Hydrate
  • Enhance
  • Protect with SPF 30
  • 0% oils and heavy ingredients
And to be honest, I think it does all these things! Except blur imperfections, but you can use concealer for that!

It doesn't make my skin break out either which is obviously great, but I've read some reviews where people said it gave them really nasty breakouts, so I guess you have to be careful!

After (also wearing blusher and bronzer on my face here along with eyeshadow and eyeliner..but you see the difference!)
Just for the record, I really struggled with lighting for these picture, so apologies that these aren't the best, but I tried! Today really wasn't the best day for me to wear BB cream since my skin is a mess, but for the purpose of this post I have :) I don't think you can really see in the pictures though my terrible skin, but in real life...

In summer I feel this will be perfect, it feels really light on your face and has SPF 30. It also brightens your face and just gives a really nice natural look.

The only problem I have with it is I really don't like the smell. I cant explain it, but personally I don't like it. It doesn't last through out the day though but when I'm applying it, I really don't like it.

I really like this BB cream, but I have never tried anything different so I have nothing to compare it with. I would definitely buy it again, but I think for now I want to try a different BB cream so I can compare and decide which I prefer. Any recommendations?
Sorry for the lateness of the post, I was stumped what to do!
