Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream:

I use it as an everyday BB Cream after washing my face. Sometimes with a very natural eye and some brow gel. It has fairly good coverage and adjusts to your skin tone slightly. The pigment beads in it that make it "magic" felt kind of rough and almost like an exfoliating scrub on the face. It does not give a nice dewy finish to the skin sadly, but a more matte finish..:( overall would probably not buy again.

Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream:

I have a question I wanted to know if this bb cream has spf because when I'm at school I get really bark on my forehead I really like this bb cream I might wear but my mom is really strict and if I tell her it has spf she might let me wear it because she has been telling me to get sunscreen but if it doesn't have spf I might go with maybaline or NARS [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have older skin and it goes on smooth. Looks natural. After several hours it disappears but at least it doesn't get stuck in pores and look patchy

      Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream:

      I have been using this BB cream for years now, and will probably continue to do so. It's perfect for a quick, natural looking coverage when I'm in a rush or don't feel like wearing a lot of makeup, but it's also great under my favorite foundation as a primer when I want more coverage. I use the fair shade in winter, and the light shade during the summer. Both are really blendable and natural looking. It's a versatile product that makes your skin look naturally beautiful with a little more color. My husband LOVES when I decide to just wear this BB cream and nothing else on my face.

          Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream:

          I really wish i could get my money back! I have fair skin that needs a bb cream that will even out my skin tone. When my favorite shade was discontinued, i decided to try this bb cream. All it did was made me look paler than i already am and didnt do much to even out my skin tone. Waste of money!

              Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream:

              I've been using this foundation ( the color medium) for 6+ years. It's always ALWAYS reliable and inexpensive compared to the other drug store foundations I've tried. I try to experiment with other foundations, but always come racing back to this one! I struggle with acne, sometimes dry, AND oily skin. Every foundation I've used in the past makes me look like a cake face, makes me break out, and/or makes my face extremely oily after an hour of use. There are also times when spots on my face get super dry and the other foundations that I experiment with, make the dry spots worse!

              What I LOVE about this foundation is that it looks super natural. It gives great coverage for how lightweight it is, and doesn't look like you have caked on foundation. Doesn't make me greasy, and it smooths out and moisturizes those random dry spots. It feels amazing as well. I hate the feeling of heavy make up and this foundation makes me feel like I have nothing on! My skin can breathe and yet acne spots are covered!
              In addition, it lasts ( as in I don't run out until after maybe 5-7 weeks of consistent use).

              If I were to make any critiques it would be that there are only three colors available (light, medium, and dark).I would love to see more shades! And lastly, sometimes I'm in the mood for more coverage so sometimes I top it off with a tinted mineral powder. But seriously, this is the only foundation I buy, knowing it works.

              Comments about L'Oréal Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream:

              this bb cream surprised me. i was looking for foundation one day at walmart when i happened to come across this one. i purchased this on a whim, saying that ill try it so i can see what the hype was all about regarding bb cream at the time. OMG! this really hydrated my skin, glided on smoothly and was effortless to put on. the only reason why i returned it at the time was because i wasnt very knowledgeable about bb cream- now that im older, i just may get this again since i have yet to find foundations that help hydrate my skin while also making my skin look nice #bbcreammedium #mediumbbcream

                  A:

                  Hi Mel, thanks for asking us what shade would best suit your skin tone. Fair shades are almost always on the pink side. It sounds like in the Studio Secrets Magic Skin Beautifier B.B. Cream, the shade light is your best match. If your skin tone changes with the summer season, don't be surprised if you find you need to use the medium by July.

                  A:

                  Hi Xinia! Most ingredients derived from grain sources are highly refined and retain no traces of gluten proteins. For less refined ingredients from natural sources, L'Oreal has established strict limits on the level of potentially allergenic proteins. Since individuals exhibit a wide range of sensitivities to these proteins, if you have any questions or concerns you should discuss with your medical care provider.
                  All the ingredients we use in a product are listed on the package or the label of the product itself. For products too small to accommodate the list, a separate ingredient list is available on the display unit in the store for your convenience. Since some ingredients are known by more than one name, we use the standard industry FDA-recognized names. A review of the ingredients that are listed on all of our products or packages will alert you to the presence of this type of ingredient.

If you are between fair and medium, we suggest to choose light. If you have more warmer tones to your skin (golden, yellow) we suggest the medium and if you have a more deeper complexion to choose the deep. We hope this helps!

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  Hi Bell! Our Magic Skin Beautifier B.B Cream does not claim to be paraben free. Parabens are a group of commonly used ingredients that act as a preservative in cosmetics and personal care products. They are highly effective in preventing the growth of fungi, bacteria and yeast that could contaminate and degrade products.
                  As part of our commitment to deliver high-quality, effective products, certain parabens are used in some of our formulations to ensure the safety of our consumers. Extensive research spanning decades has confirmed the parabens in our portfolio are safe at the concentrations we use. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates the personal care industry, upholds these findings.
                  While we take great care in evaluating each ingredient we use and are confident in our products' safety, we know there is public conversation encouraging consumers to avoid certain ingredients, as is the case with some parabens. Based on growing demand for products that do not include parabens, we substituted them for other preservatives in some of our products. 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.
                  As we have for the past 100 years, we will continue to take a rigorous approach to product quality and safety, while monitoring consumer insights and preferences. If you would like to learn more about parabens and how they protect your safety, we encourage you to visit www.cosmeticsinfo.org
