Comments about Dr. Brandt BB Matte With Signature Shinerase:

I was excited there was a type of cream out there that would make me look as natural as possible without using any foundation. I have oily skin and foundation tend to cause oil to accumulate over a period of time and caused acne. But this bb cream was something I was looking for and I thought the outcome would outweigh the cost.

I used toner, a deep moisturizer before application of the bb cream and I blended this to my face with a foundation brush. The coverage was very good! It was almost like wearing foundation ( of course more layers = more coverage) but I only needed one layer and it was perfect. Over 3 hours, I started to see patches of blotchiness of the product. It didn't look like it blended and my skin was dry. I didn't have oil in places I would've but the blotchiness made it look unnatural and dry.

The tone was good for me; I have light skin and I use a little bit of blush to make it look less pale. Although the product was a good coverage, I didn't appreciate that it didn't look natural. I could've used foundation instead and saved a lot more money. it then again this is the first bb cream I've tried so far.

    Comments about Dr. Brandt BB Matte With Signature Shinerase:

    My facial skin is fair, VERY oily, has large pores, adult acne (I am 25 as of 2014), and I live in both southeast Georgia and north Georgia, so I am battling humidity too (my face sweats really easily). In addition to my skin problems, I take a medication or two that can cause acne, as a side effect. My recent skin regimen that appears to prevent the oil slick: Dermalogica's clearing skin wash then apply Dermalogica's clearing mattifier and oil control lotion along with clindamycin (from the dermatologist). I then use Hourglass Veil primer, then Dr Brandt BB shine control, and then Tarte Smooth Operator powder. I wait 5-10 minutes between applying the Dermalogica and clindamycin (I use the clindamycin before applying the Dermalogica mattifier and oil control). Then apply the primer and wait 5-10 minutes before applying the Dr Brandt BB shine control cream. I've had success with both types of Tarte concealer, which I apply after the BB cream. Then, after applying Tarte blush and Tarte matte bronzer along with Urban Decay eye makeup and Smashbox eye primer (I feel Smashbox eye primer doesn't try my eyes out like Urban Decays but both will hold eyeshadow) and Smashbox brow tech (which is incredible and waterproof). I finish my makeup routine with Urban Decay's De Slick setting spray. I've also had success with Benefit's porefessional primer. This is my first bottle of Hourglass Veil, but according to the label, it has more beneficial ingredients for your skin than the porefessional. I used to use Murad anti-aging products and acne products especially the oil control lotion, but it was doing good to hold the oil back for 8 hours. However, I was using Tarte BB primer cream instead of the Dr Brandt. I haven't used Tarte BB with the Dermalogica or Murad with the Dr Brandt BB. After the success I've had with the Dermalogica and Dr Brandt duo, I'm hesitant to retry the Tarte BB and Murad. Note, I use Tretinoin gel at night and take oral doxycycline hyclate both from my dermatologist.

        Comments about Dr. Brandt BB Matte With Signature Shinerase:

        I had high hopes for this BB cream I got on an Ulta promotion. After all, Its Dr. Brandt right? I was very dissapointed. The light-medium shade was too dark for my fair skin.I have combination/ oily skin. It didn't apply smoothly with my fingers. It seemed to apply in patches onto my skin instead of going on smoothly? After fighting with the product to apply it, the end result was an orange mess that was somewhat sticky and blotchy.After my struggle I didn't pay much attention to its mattifiying/ oil controlling capabilities so I will not comment on this. I have used this expensive tube only once and I will not use again.

              I got a free full size when ulta had a promotion and I thought how could I pass up a free Dr. Brandt product? I love it so much I know I will be purchasing. It feels good, it looks so flawless on, it has great spf protection. I am a hardcore make-up wearer and am NEVER seen without foundation. I actually can't believe it but I can slap this on with some lip product and feel polished if I am in a rush to get out. Great find.

                  I did not like this BB cream, it did not blend well, and was difficult to spread. It sat on my skin like a film and I broke out the next day. I was highly disappointed.

                        Feels great on my skin. Doesn't feel tacky like some products with sunscreen can feel. I have an oily T zone and am usually very shiny after a couple hours but this really controls the shine. It has good coverage for a BB cream. A little goes a long way.
