Rated 3.84 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review AMAZING (and I don't even like BB creams)
This is AMAZING. I was so shockingly surprised at how awesome this is! I NEVER use BB creams long-term b/c they just don't work.
This provides awesome coverage w/o being cakey or thick.
It has a gorgeous, dewy (but not oily) look to it; and the coloring is stunning.
I have REALLY oily skin and I still have to blot throughout the day, but this gives my skin such an awesome, clean, glowing and pretty look. AND - I'm getting my SPF on w/o breaking out.
Love this SO much!
Most Helpful Critical Review good for very pale skin tones
PROS: The "Light" shade is great for very fair/pale skin tones! I have very pale skin with cool undertones, freckles, and blue eyes so the lightest shade in most BB creams are still too dark/yellow for me. This formula has a physical sunscreen, rather than chemical sunscreen which is great for sensitive skin.
CONS: This stuff separated SO BAD after a couple of hours on me. It looked like there was a white film on my face where the pigment separated from the sunscreen. I also have combo skin with dry patches and it would cling to my dry spots. Also this BB did have a bit of a funky smell - however I think if you're used to using natural/hippy products that probably won't be much of an issue (a lot of the Burt's Bees products do have kind of a weird scent to them).
So as much as I love the shade of this, this one is getting returned unfortunately.
Reviewed by 276 customers Favorite BB cream but where are the darker shades?
Lala Murray from Connecticut
This is my favorite BB cream and I have been using it for a couple years now. I love the way it looks and feels. Thankfully, there is a shade that works for me, but I am only giving this three stars instead of the five it could deserve because I believe Burts Bees needs to create a wider range of darker shades. I cannot recommend this to all of my family and friends because there are no darker shades to match everyone. I know that it blends in fairly sheer but it is just not good enough right now. Let's do better, Burts Bees!
Please don't discontinue this!
MagicMama from US
This is the only product I have found in a long time that actually matches my skin tone and doesn't contain coconut oil or chemical sunscreen. I love the way it works on my extremely dry skin, and how my skin looks better after removing this product than it did before applying.
Great Clean BB Cream
Kelly from Pennsylvania
I initially tried this because this BB cream is non-toxic. If you are looking for a fuller coverage clean bb cream/foundation look at Pacifica Beauty, but this product is great. It provides light to medium coverage, blends well, looks natural, and I love that it is SPF 15. For that alone, this is a great product. Reading the reviews, I was worried about the smell. I don't mind it or find it bad - if anything it reminds me of sunscreen lotion or other bb creams. It is very mild, and the scent is only present at application. Definitely will repurchase!
Lori K from St Paul, MN
Tried the darkest shade available, and it's too light. I'm of European descent with light brown hair; a solid "medium" in all tinted moisturizers I've tried in other lines. Also, the texture is chalky. I tried mixing it with other Burt's Bees moisturizers, which made it even more chalky. I really like all the other skin products, having recently switched from Cetaphil. A tinted moisturizer with SPF is a priority for me, though, so much that I may explore other lines.
White cast + Stinky
Sierra from Texas
I had high hopes for this product. I'm usually a light in most creams, so that's what I got in this BB cream. However, it made me look horribly white, basically sick-looking or ghostly. Smells awful as well. Disappointed.
cashbrook from southern utah
it runs when wet. but living near vegas, it isn't a big worry.
love the inclusivity...
bbbbb from undisclosed
this BB cream is great but there's nothing in my shade. why does it stop at medium? the definition of medium is halfway between two contrasts
Burt's Bees BB Cream
JezzieLyn from Kalamazoo , Michigan USA
Bought a tube of Burt's Bees BB cream, and fell in love with it's silky texture, scent , and it's natural look on my skin. I applied it over the Burt's Bees day lotion, it works well, stays put, and keeps my skin feeling moist & dewy, it's a light coverage, which is all I wanted, and the Noni is proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, has sunscreen and the light coverage, buildable coverage! 5 Stars to all of Burt's Bees products, for sensitive skin, it's a God send, highly recommended brand ' Burt's Bees', most products nearly 100% natural too!
Great cream, but need a darker color option
stephiowa from Iowa
This is a great BB Cream, but the color only goes to Medium - I really need a Medium/Dark or Dark option also - that would be great!
Smells weird and has too much oil, not for combo/oily ski
Amanda from Houston, Texas
The smell bothers me and product always comes out separated with oils and product, even if you knead the tube prior to dispensing. Ok coverage, but not for combo skins. Smell is like a lemony sour stinky feet smell. been trying to tolerate it but just can't get pass the smell.
astrogrl from Denver, CO
Absolutely love this product! I have been using it for over 5 years and my skin is in love. I will use this BB cream and nothing else forever! Thank you so much for making this product as I do not like using foundations as they feel heavy on my skin. I use this everyday with the powder compact and it looks great!
Dewy, natural, coverage
Hope from Columbus, Ohio
I love this bb cream. So easy to blend and put on. Doesn't look cakey and leaves skin dewy. It smells kinda earthy, but it doesn't bother me. The coverage is impressive and still looks natural.
Hope from Columbus, Ohio
I love this bb cream! It provides good coverage without looking heavy! It's dewy, feels light on the skin, and blends nicely. It also has a great scent!
Best BB cream I've found
LinYan from West Texas
I have used this product for about 4 years. Please don't ever stop making this! It's my go to. It's improved the quality of my skin and I get so many compliments on my skin. I am very light skinned, and the light-medium is perfect for me. The light is almost white.
Tlwindiana from Indiana
I've been using this for 5 years. I love the consistency. It goes on very smooth. Please don't stop making this!! It's so hard to find one that's this perfect.
I LIKE IT!
ChamileINFJ from NC
I've been trying a few different BB Creams lately and I really like this one!
I purchased the light/medium shade. It is a beautiful shade with a very nice consistency (cream-gel). It has a very slight coconut-vanilla scent that I really like! This provides very nice coverage, a flawless finish and very nice hydration! The best part is Burt's Bee's commitment to utilizing good, high-performance, natural ingredients. This is always reassuring when deciding between products!
It's perfect for anyone who enjoys a more hydrating product, lives in a dry or cold climate, or anyone who has normal-to-dry skin like me! Those with oily skin *may* find this too hydrating but the product dries down nicely so a primer or dusting of powder would work nicely with this. I would recommend giving it a try!
Nice product but funny (moldy?) smell
Jennyrofcary from Cary, NC
I like the texture and results of this product, but it has a scent that almost smells moldy. Is this a normal scent? I purchased two new, sealed and unexpired, and both have the smell to them. Otherwise I like the product very much.
LisaPfeffer from New York
I bought the light shade. The weirdest thing is that it looks grey when you apply it and it kind of stays looking that way. I've tried adding a little powder on top, but, would be great if it didn't have the weird grey tinge. It's too obvious. Either than that, I liked the coverage without it looking too greasy after it dries for about 20 minutes. I'm just not sure I'd be able to repurchase with the weird grey tinge.
Not for oily skin
Susyq from Suffolk, Va
The light shade was still a little darker then my skin color and after an hour my face look more oily than usual. It was disappointing since I was looking for a light weight coverage.
Definitely would not buy again.
Tmar from Cincinnati, OH
So this goes one with a grayish tint, but I needed it so I didn't care too much. Well this product is okay as long as you don't sweat! As soon as you sweat it starts separating and looks absolutely terrible!
eisela from pennsylvania
my skin isn't that patchy or acne prone, so i hate using full coverage products that make my face cakey. this is the perfect amount where it looks so natural and blends great with the skin. and it smells good. :)
Oily, flaky, and gross
Angela from US
I really wanted to love this bc it sounds amazing! But everything would flake off after putting on powder (you can't go without powder since it's also pretty oily). After about 3 weeks the oil separated from the rest... even when I'd shake it. I would not recommend it.
Love this BB Cream
Happy1 from PA
If you are looking for light coverage that gives your skin a healthy glow this is for you I love it I have slight redness and this covers it perfectly and looks so natural like I'm wearing nothing at all
Strange Odor, but Good Product
SLRice from NC
I use this product on the go when I do not have much time to spend on foundation. The coverage is great, spreads easily, does not take much product to cover. But the formula has an off smell to it, a little too earthy smell. Do not leave this in a hot car, you will need to shake it a lot to recombine the formula.
nice bb cream
honeycombe from Michigan
nice scent good coverage
