Most Helpful Positive Review DON'T SLEEP ON THIS ONE
I have only been doing makeup about 9 months so I'm pretty new to the game. Until I used this product I swore by full coverage foundations and never thought I would reach for something "sheer". However around a month ago I started working on 'everyday'/'natural' looks and found I needed something less heavy-duty than foundation. That's when I purchased this BB cream in shade 120 Medium. I could not believe the results. Even though this cream is "sheer coverage" it evens out my skin tone so well it honestly looks like I have medium coverage on. The best part its it holds up very very well even in the Miami summer climate. I found that my foundations would break up a lot from the humidity but this BB cream stays in tact!!! The only niggle is for me is that the finish is dewy, and I prefer matte. Therefore this may not be ideal for oily skin types (mine is dry).
I now mix shades 110 and 120 bc 120 was a little dark for me. I am attaching two pictures with me wearing the 110/120 mix, one natural look and one more glam.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's Okay, I'd Expected More
The light color is just a hair too dark for my very fair skin, but it is very lightweight, so is easy to blend and make look natural. It goes on very smooth, and blends in a lot better than the other "foundation" type products I've tried. I like how the product makes my skin feel - smooth.
This is not a product that provides heavy coverage, so if that's what you need, this isn't the right thing.
My skin is very sensitive, and I found this product stings a bit sometimes. I also think it's causing some breakouts. In the end, I won't buy it again, for those reasons, and the fact that it's not quite light enough for my skintone, even though I bought the lightest version. I wish these products came in "wicked pale". :lol:
Reviewed by 1532 customers works pretty well for the price, BUT

not the most inclusive or broad shade range.
Sherry from Williamsburg VA
Feels really good on the skin and last all day long and gives you that summer glow
Made me break out
Makeup Dweeb from Phoenix
I was on the hunt for a new, budget-friendly tinted moisturizer and decided to try this one. It really blended well with my skin and I loved the finish, but it made me break out. So tragic because I was nearly a convert.
I use as a spot concealer
Autummh from Hot Springs, AR
I got this in my vox box and wanted to use it as a allover tinted moisturizing cream but it does need a lot of prep for that . You need to expholiate and moisturize before and use a primer for it to hold and not flake up . I like to use to for my eyelids and chin and to cover up a blemish with a brush instead and for that purpose it works great as jusr a spot treatment. It is light and creamy but lihjt coverage and when you set it with primer spray it will hold up for several hours indoors. I will probably have this tube a long time not sure about repurchasing just yet I have to play with it and bit more.
Small product, big results
Silygrits from Perry, ga
This product is great! It provides a slight tint that smooths and moisturizes skin while evening out skin tone and color imperfections, all while providing SPF 30 protection. It is extremely lightweight-I forgot I was even wearing it. This would make a great primer, but I honestly just wore it by itself with some mascara and eyeliner and still felt put together.
Mssassy from boston
Great bb cream, very lightweight, blends in with my skin perfectly, it does not make it look to dark or too coggly. It doesn't clog my pores and I love it specially during the winter. this cream gives my skin a normal look, absolutely love it for everyday use
Lightweight with nice coverage
Brianna S. from MN
This was a nice lightweight BB cream with good coverage. Great alternative to wearing foundation especially when it's summer time. This blended well with clean hands and a damp sponge.
Good product but shade is not the most inclusive
Kristin from Nashville TN
Lightweight formula, easy to use, easy to blend, etc., But with a strong warm undertone that I haven't figured out how to make look natural. It does a good job of balancing out skin tone. Didn't completely cover my rosacea but definitely made it much less noticable, which is what I'd hope a light coverage product would do.
Stacy from Friendsville Tn
I love this. It is so lightweight and stays all day without using a setting spray.
I would buy this again
Aleksandra from Chicago
I received this product free of charge to test out and I think that it's amazing especially for summer. I'm not a huge fan of full glam and lean more towards the more natural makeup looks and I feel like this is perfect for how I like my base makeup to look.
not bad at all
nina from los angeles
not bad for price. just. bit too sticky for my skin
Hal from Charleston, SC
I typically only use higher end "beauty counter" products for my face so I was not expecting to like this bb cream but it's actually great! It blurs pores well and adjusted well to my skin tone (looks too dark when I squeeze it out but then somehow is the right shade when on). Lightweight feeling, matte, has not made me breakout. I wear a higher spf moisturizer under it because I'm very specific about sunscreen coverage but it's nice that this has spf in it. I now use this regularly for quick workday coverage (but still use nicer products for going out/times I need to look nice).
Coverage with a suncreen
Marcie52 from Philadelphia, PA
The Maybelline dream BB Fresh beauty balm is just perfect for me. It gave me a natural look. It felt light and gave me a sheer coverage with sunscreen protection. I would recommend this product to family and friends.
Megan from Georgia
Love this BB cream! Would definitely recommend!
Doesn't feel super heavy on my skin.
Kristin from Nashville TN
This is a nice product to apply and wear. Loves up to its claims, does help even the complexion without looking heavy. However, it's got an extremely yellow undertone. Noticable enough that I can't get away with it alone. However, if you have a more warm undertone you might love this.
Mel from MIAMI, FL
Unfortunately, this product just didn't do it for me. The second day after using this product I noticed I started breaking out. I stopped using it for a few days to give my face a chance to get better. When I used this product again, my face broke out again. At this point, I am assuming my skin does not like something in the product.
Not my fave
Chels from Texas
Has a really pretty finish and doesn't dry out my skin, but not a ton of coverage and didn't last all day on me.
Truracefan from CA
My daughter bought this for light coverage and she loves it.
Pretty decent BB Cream
kathy1214 from Texas
I have sensitive skin and this didn't irritate my skin at all. Its not full coverage, its a very light coverage almost like a tinted moisturizer but looks stunning on the skin. Its not matte or heavy. This BB cream has more of a dewy finish but not oily by any means. My skin instantly looked better. I didn't notice if the product had any fragrance. It might smell a little like sunscreen since it does contain an spf of 30, which isn't too bad. Overall all I will continue to buy since I really liked this product.
mgroover from Georgia
I like that it was a moisturizer, has SPF and is oil free. It diminished the redness on my face.
I received this product in exchange for writing a review.
Perfect for a relaxing day
Kml624 from St. Louis, Missouri
This product is perfect for day when you don't want a full face or makeup. I used this often throughout the summer when I wanted just a little bit of color and coverage. I loved this for pool days because it gave some coverage while providing some SPF. To me, it is a very light coverage. The texture was nice and it was easy to apply.
Not the best, not the worst.
Brooke from East Lansing, MI
Full disclosure...I am incredibly hard to please when it comes to BB and CC creams. This is lightly moisturizing with very light coverage. It does feel fresh and light on skin and didn't cause any breakouts. It does not hold up very well 8n hot humid weather. I think this product would be much better suited for my skin in the winter.
SHADE 100 - new lightest shade = CARROT SKIN
PaleAndMad from Madville
Don't be fooled like I was by your excitement for the new 100 palest shade in this range. It is 100% orangey and dark and not at all what it should be!! Eve after shaking it and trying to make it work, it's awful.
