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 268 customers 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
Great for the price
Nicole from Iowa
Great daily bb cream that doesn't break the bank. Wears well and a nice light coverage. Isn't too greasy and feels moisturizing
Ok, moisturizing BB cream
KryssieBee from Chicago
I chose the medium light shade. I have a fair-olive complexion. The product itself does not blend easily. You really have to rub it in so you don't see any lines. Coverage is light to medium, depending on how much product you use. Pros: it smells good, it's moisturizing, spf 15 using non-chemical sunscreen ingredients.
NickiD83 from Oakville,WA
I love this BB Cream! It's light, it's airy, and it protects my skin! I love it! I hope they never discontinue it!
sav3964 from California
I use this on the daily for work. It provides very natural looking coverage. I like that it is light weight and hides any redness. It lasts throughout my 8 hr. work day! I have dry skin and it provides awesome hydration! Typically after i apply this i add concealer to problem areas, bronzer on the cheeks and it looks like full face coverage!
literally the most amazing purchase of my life lol
juliawalterz from grand rapids, mi

Super Sensitive Skin - Works Wonders!!
Yassi from Bozeman, MT
I have very dry, very sensitive skin. If any product has aloe or fragrance in it, I'll get really bad rashes on my skin - which has made my search for inexpensive and safe makeup very difficult and honestly sometimes embarrassing. However! This makeup alongside with their rosewater toner, chamomile cleanser, and moisturizer from a different company has been AMAZING. My makeup and skincare routine are both rather low maintenance, so this product is perfect if you want a natural look. I love this product so much it compelled me to write a review - which I never do! Very satisfied with Burt's Bees products and what they advertise.
Perfect For Natural Makeup Looks
Anna from McKinney, TX
I bought this to replace foundation as I hate the cakey foundation look and really enjoy natural looking makeup and having a focus on skincare over makeup. And I have continued to buy it when I run out! It's got a good amount of coverage for a BB cream and it gives you a healthy glow. It can be a little hard to apply with fingers because it really does stick to your skin (no complaints there really) but applying with a beauty blender helps.
Most importantly, my skin has never broken out under the weight of this BB cream, versus I used to develop skin problems with various foundations. I'm grateful for this product!
Best bb cream
Caitlyn1 from Buffalo, NY
I have been wearing this bb cream every day for 5 years now and I still love it. Perfect amount of coverage. Just needs some powder and blush on top. I have very fair skin and the light works for me, I just have to mix it with the more tinted one in the summer. I hope this is never discontinued!
