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 1507 customers Evens out skin tone with bonus skin protection
Ratrunner from Ventura, CA
I really like how easily and smoothly the Maybelline Dream BB Fresh cream applied to my face. It feels pleasant on my skin...it doesn't feel like I have a weighty product on my face. I am delighted with how well it evens out my skin tone. I have visible areas of light and darker skin (sunglasses and sun exposure) so I was concerned if this cream (110 light/medium sheer tint) would work for me. It does and well! The fact that this cream is formulated with broad spectrum SPF 30 is a big plus for me.
I would purchase this but in my correct shade
Jenn from Dayton, Ohio
I like the light weight feel of this product. I also like that it has spf 30, and zero percent oil
Great for mask-wearers and sun-lovers!
Aub from NY
I have such rosy-red cheeks! I wear a mask all day so I was tired of wearing heavy foundation everyday. I now use this product, applied with a damp beauty blender all over my face. The SPF is great too. I don't feel like I'm wearing a greasy sunblock or tinted moisturizer. The color is great. I chose 110 (light/medium) for my light neutral undertones. It does not oxidize to any orange tones which I've had with other tinted moisturizers and BB creams. For the rest of my makeup I will use a small amount of concealer and set my face with Elf brand powder and setting spray. Great combo!!!
DanniH from Indiana
The shade light is colored like peanut butter. It is not a light shade at all. The formula feels great but it's way too yellow. It's more of a medium than a light shade.
I probably would repurchase but in my correct shade
Jen from Dayton, Ohio
I like that it's light weight, not heavy looking on your skin. It gives a natural look, and it has spf 30 which is great. I did not like how once rubbed into my skin it made my skin look ashy. Like a grey cast had been applied instead of makeup. The shade that was given to me complimentary was not my correct shade. I wouldn't mind trying my correct shade to see how it does with my skin tone.
HNichole88 from Georgia
Super lightweight and great coverage!
Would buy again!
Dee from San Jose, CA
I use a small amount over my entire face. Great for days where I need coverage to even out, but don't want the heaviness of foundation. This will be used in the summer months. I thought it was great and I didn't need to stress about a perfect color match, I thought it worked just as well maybe better than some of the more expensive foundations, I also didn't notice any transfer.
KateL from Centerport
This product is just ok. It matched pretty well but I didn't notice any of the other things it claims to do. I probably wouldn't be on the top of my list for recommendations.
Looks oily after 6 hours
ostercoaster from Washington
I got this to use as my summer foundation as I don't like how heavy my usual full coverage foundation feels in the summer. This goes on nicely and blends into skin well but after about 6 hours it starts to wear off and look oily, it even soaks through my strongest setting powder. I really wanted to like this but it just doesn't work for me unfortunately.
Robs98 from Boston
To be fair, the color was a little light for me right now but I found the finish a little streaky. I like the lightweight feel and finish. I also like a built in SPF.
Quick and Easy!
Kate from Boston
This BB cream makes your skin look great without having to put on a full face. I've been wearing a lot less makeup during quarantine and I like that this is quick to put on and gives me that 'no makeup' look in no time. Very light-feeling and good coverage. I will say this works best with a setting powder especially if you have oily skin like me. I wore this out in the heat a few times and did have to touch up. You can't beat the Dream Fresh BB Cream for the price and shade range!
Great for on the go
nurse35802 from Huntsville, Al
I like how easy it is to apply. I prefer it applied to face with fingers, like you would apply moisturizer. I usually prefer at least a medium to full coverage foundation. But, I knew this was a BB cream, and it's only going to give a light coverage. It's best when you're on the go and just want to even out your skin tone. Overall, as long as you don't expect long wearing and a fuller coverage, this is a good product.
Marya3 from Atl
This is my first bb cream ever and it did not disappoint. I loved the consistency of this cream, not too thick and not too light. When i applied it on my face, it was light weight and it quickly blended with my skin tone. Loved that it had no scent and it did not clog my skin. I used it after applying my moisturizer and i love that it has some sunscreen protection sp30. I look forward to buying more after using this cream. I wish it was bigger tube size.
Decent BB cream
Kristin from Nashville TN
This went on easily but leans yellow hard. I have a somewhat green undertone so this was not the best color match. However, it did cover okay. I have rosacea and eczema, so my face revs to be super red. This didn't even out my problem areas completely, but it definitely made them less noticable, so it does what it should in that regard. Doesn't feel thick or heavy, easy quick application, and if it matches your skin I don't think you'd dislike it. I wish it was a more neutral undertone so it worked for a wider variety of folks.
Nickie from Chicago,IL
I have fair skin and I'd say the color "matched" but it really didn't do anything to cover anything it just seemed like a moisturizer with no tint once it was rubbed on. I wouldn't recommend. @Influenster #Complimentary
This is a to go quick options.
cper137 from Monmouth, New Jersey
This is wonderful for a quick throw on and get out the door. It's lightweight coverage and blendable. You can add more if you want to build the coverage as well. It also does do what it claims, it smooths the skin and covers minor imperfections. the only thing i did notice was the day after i had a blemish but that could have come from anything and not this product necessarily. I did receive a sample for free from infester to test and give my honest opinion, but I would buy this product again.
Bendable and buildable with SPF
Becca from Oklahoma
The BB cream matched my skin tone perfectly, which isn't an easy thing to find. I have cool undertones with an almost yellowish and bluish undertone color.. while there was still product on my face at the end of the day and the natural coverage was there, my skin was super oily at the end of the day. Overall, it was great for a BB cream.
Nice foundation alternative
Jerigrl005 from New Jersey
I used to use the original ALL the time, before I was into makeup or foundation. The one I like a lot is without the SPF but this is a nice option to use. I like that it fights breakouts and doesn't clog my pores. I've been into tinted moisturizers lately and this is going to be great for the summer
Sharon from San Antonio Texas
Didn't really care for this bb cream. I'm oily so it wasn't so great on me. Still a nice to use until My skin gets all oily.
Good for a light coverage
Medical assistant from Columbia sc
If you are looking for coverage this is not for you. If you want to just even out you skin tone a bit and look more put together this will work.
Susan from Atlanta, GA
This is a great sheer coverage product, perfect for the "no makeup makeup days." It evened put my skin tone and diminished the look of fine lines.
perfect for summer!
savannahlucia from Boston, MA
This skin tint or makes me feel comfortable in my skin without a ton of makeup. It's awesome for summer when you whats one thing lightweight.
Easy light beach day makeup
Sairberry from Ventura,Ca
This is perfect for beach day makeup. I've that it's is an extra boost of SPF on top of my daily. It's light wear but has decent coverage to get out the door. I like the small packaging- could easily take with me traveling or in my bag as needed.
Like this BB Cream!!!
amyb from Reedsville, pa
I really am liking this BB Cream from Maybelline. Very Lightweight, don't even know that there is anything on my face. Love that its has SPF in it. It Blurs out imperfections. If you wanted a more full coverage, just put a powder foundation on top of it. It enhances & brightens your skin. Adjusts to your skintone. Plus hydrates & smoothes. 0 % oils and other heavy ingredients.
Even, smooth, coverage-love this!
MicheleBRN from Baltimore, MD
I love Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream. This formula is light, easy to apply and spread on even surfaces and around eyes and nose. It doesn't cake on nor feel sticky while wearing it. You can wear and a base under make-up, or by itself for a finished look.
