    Comments about Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Skin Clearing Perfector:

    I hate foundation and most face makeup. I have only used concealer and eye makeup for years. Last year I went through some hormonal changes and my skin was dreadful. I started using this and a beauty blender then dusting with setting powder to make my skin appear less awful. It doesn't break me out and it covers decently to hide minor imperfections. I have super sensitive skin, so this is a win.

      Please stock the other shades!

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Skin Clearing Perfector:

      I love this BB cream, it's probably my favorite of the Western drugstore options. I went through three tubes of this, wearing almost everyday for two years. I love how natural it looks while providing a good level of coverage, and I love that it has salicylic acid because I am all about preventing breakouts. I switched to playing around with some Korean BB creams and then wanted to pick up another Dream Pure BB because I remembered how much I liked it and wanted to comlare. The reason this has gone from being a holy grail product to below a five star product for me is because Ulta has stopped stocking the other three shades! Maybelline offers five shades and Ulta only offers three. Really light girls like myself are missing out by not having "Light" offered and those with deeper skin are missing out because "Deep" is not on offered either. Please consider restocking those shades.

      Comments about Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Skin Clearing Perfector:

      I used to buy this brand and have strayed away, however I tried it again and I love it. They must have changed the formula in recent years but this is a very smooth coverage, and very pigmented for a bb cream, I currently have redness and blemishes and this products covers everything completely. It's my new go to.
      There is a slight burning upon application due to that salicylic acid, but it goes away quickly. I only say this because it's simply surprising is you don't know about it.

      Super Dry Skin and Awful Break Outs

        Comments about Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Skin Clearing Perfector:

        At first I really liked this because it looked fairly natural, and I was excited that it would help me with acne. I never had bad acne, but I had a few things here and there, and I wanted those to be gone.
        Whenever I used this product, it made my face so greasy after about 3 hours. I have dry skin (sometimes a little shiny). After using this product five days a week, my skin starting peeling (flaking) like crazy. It looked so gross and it would make the foundation so flaky. I did not realize it was the foundation causing this problem, and I tried putting moisturizer before, and my skin was still so dry (especially around my eyes, nose, and between my eyebrows). After maybe 3-4 weeks of using this, I had the worse acne of my life. I keep using this product thinking it would help, but it made everything so much worse. It gave me multiple white heads between my eyebrows and in other random areas. I never had white heads before except for maybe once or twice. I became so embarrassed of my skin, but kept using the product because I had no idea that it was causing all these problems. In the summer, I stopped using it and my skin went back to normal and was not flaky, and all my whiteheads disappeared within a month. I had scars for maybe 5 months but those eventually went away too. I've only had this problem of extremely flaky dry skin and bad breakouts when I was using this product. I talked to a friend of mine too and she had the same problem. No other foundation I have used since has made me breakout. If you are thinking about buying this, save your money and buy another product that won't destroy your skin!:)

          Firstly it's a bb cream, so expect light/sheer coverage. For a bb cream it gives good coverage. It masks redness while still being sheer & lightweight enough to look like skin. I have sensitive slightly oily skin and this doesn't break me out or make me greasy.

            This product is great for people with normal or dry skin but not for us with oily skin. I've set this bb cream many times with lots of powder but by the end of the day I am shiny and the coverage is almost gone. I also have very fair skin and the lightest color by it's self is too dark.

            Tried this for the first time and I'm not a huge fan of it. I like that it's lightweight and easy to apply but it kind of cakes ups and comes off. Not for an every day use. Maybe just lounging around the house, running quick errands type of product.

                Hello Maria! We do not have any prepared information at this time. Consumers can look on our products' labels to see what ingredients are included. Additionally, as part of our innovation strategy we are developing packaging systems and new product formulations that are less vulnerable to microbiological contamination, which will limit the use of preservatives in general. Hope this helps!

                Hello there Cherry Pie! It is challenging to find an exact shade match based on this type of communication. Based on what we see, we suggest to take a look at 110 Light-Medium or 120 Medium in our Dream Pure BB Cream. We hope this helps!

                A:

                Hi there Ali! Our Dream Pure BB Cream is a product that will give light to medium coverage. BB Creams can be seen as lightweight foundations or tinted moisturizers. If you are looking for a full coverage type of foundation to help cover freckles, we recommend to take a look at our Fit Me Matte + Poreless or Dewy + Smooth foundation. These two liquid foundations are buildable and will provide the coverage you need. Hope this helps!

                A:

                Hi there Natalie! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to clarify. We're here to help! The Dream Pure BB Cream is our 1st blemish fighting BB cream with 2% salicylic acid. It will adjust to skin tone, minimize look of pores, and reduce the appearance of redness. This product is oil-free and finished with a lightweight feel. It is for combination and/or blemish-prone skin and is non-comedogenic. Our Dream Fresh BB Cream is an 8-in-1 perfector that brightens, smoothes, hydrates, and protects with broad-spectrum SPF 30. It will give skin a dewy finish. This replenishing water-gel formula leaves skin feeling fresh. We recommend using the Dream Fresh for your skin type. We hope this clarifies!
