Most Helpful Positive Review My favorite!
I'm fair skin, very oily, and prefer natural looking makeup. This is one of my favorite products for everyday wear. Been using this over 4 years. I used to have horrible breakouts and when I started using this, YES.. it DID make me break out a little more... That's what it does like all other acne medications. I didn't give it up because it gave the perfect coverage that I wanted, I hate heavy makeup and this is lightweight. So after using it continuously, it cleared my acne. For years it would just slide off of my face by midday or in the afternoon because I have oily skin and the humidity sucks in New Orleans, but as you get older, you learn tricks. The way it lasts ALL day with me is that I moisturize with Neutrogena's oil free moisturizer, wait 5 min, then prime with E.L.F's Hydrating Face Primer, wait another 5 min, and then apply the BB cream. I've found this works best for me and lasts most of the day. I always recommend this product along with my skincare routine for those who want light makeup. The picture I selected is using only the BB cream and some light blush (of course eyeliner and mascara). It applies evenly and you don't have to use a lot of product since it's meant for lightweight use. If you want to cover up red pimples, use some concealer and blend it out.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not For Darker Skin Tones
I typically use their Dream Fresh BB cream and absolutely love it but I do have problems with acne so when I found out about this I had to get some.
Since I use shade medium/deep in Dream Fresh (and there were no testers available) I figured I'd grab that shade. Seemed like a no brained to me. Wrong! This medium/deep is closer to light/medium. I knew it was the wrong shade when it came out of the tube but tried it anyway just in case. I looked like a ghost!
I returned it and tried the deep. Still wrong! I am bi-racial so it appears as if I have a natural year round tan. This was still a bit too light even for my winter skin tone.
It is a pretty thick formula compared to the Dream Fresh. Very creamy instead of liquidity. So it would be great for oily skin or humid weather conditions. It also had a pleasantly clean scent. Application was a breeze, just dotted some around my face, blended with a stippling brush, then used a beauty sponge to push in around my nose and under my eyes. Didn't settle into fine lines.
I'm so bummed about this. I don't know who thought their shade of Deep was actually deep but unless you have fairer skin than J-Lo then you're going to have a bad time with this product. I'll still recommend it for my fair skin friends but no one else.

I have to admit, I was worried about trying a BB cream because I'm a full coverage girl. I was worried there would not be enough coverage, but coupled with my concealer it was enough and gave me a nice natural look. I like how it feels on my face, in that, I didn't feel anything. I gave it three stars because it wore off throughout the day. I often I had to touch it up more than once on the days I wore it. While I appreciated the natural look, it was a good thing I was in the house, where I could touch it up before my next meeting. I just wish it lasted longer.
Pimple Be gone
Beanbeauti from San Antonio Texas
I received this product to review. This definitely is good if you are having an acne breakout. When I applied this on a couple of pimples they went away within a few days. I spot applied it on those days. And the other days I applied to full face. I have combo oily Dry skin so I needed to make sure and moisturize well on the areas I am dry. Doing that the BB Cream held up well for the 6 hours I wore makeup. It's a very good product
Mommysparks from Vancouver, Wa
I'm so incredibly impressed by this BB cream. For years I've always used Tarte BB cream and I never thought I would find anything else I love. I was wrong. This cream felt amazing on my skin, I love the coverage which is not too heavy, not too light. I love that my skin looked so young after applying. My skin also seemed to love the ingredients because I glow every time I wear it.
Great summer BB cream!
LC from Walnut Creek
I was surprised at how much I loved this BB cream. First of all the color was spot on and blended into my skin beautifully. It has a light coverage but still manages to blowouts imperfections and leave a airbrushed type finish. I only wish it had SPF, but overall it's a must have‼️👍🏼
Got acne & wrinkles? This is for you!
Nicki after 50 from Dallas, Texas
As far as BB creams go, this one is a winner! This little dream cream is perfect for those no make-up make-up days - when you want a little coverage to cover up those imperfections and dark spots. I found it sunk into my skin beautifully with a nice matte finish. The best part - it didn't "cake up" around my fine lines or blemishes! Oh, and the fact that this BB cream is actually providing me with skincare benefits while I'm wearing it is incredible! Clears up blemishes and hydrates my skin! At the end of a 12 hour day wearing this, my skin does feel a little dry, but honestly a little facial mist gets it right back where it needs to be. I'm kinda in love!
Love this multitasker!
Jamie from Evans, Ga
This BB cream is true to its name - a dream! Application is a snap, but the coverage is enough to keep you looking polished and put together. The color match was spot on, too. I found I had to reapply by the afternoon, but that was no big deal - my skin welcomed the extra boost of hydration. Would definitely recommend this to a friend!
Love this multitasker!
Jamie from Evans, GA
This BB cream is a dream product! Goes on so light that I can literally apply anywhere without a mirror, yet somehow the coverage is enough to keep me looking polished and put together. The color match was spot on, too!
Great coverage while not looking like I had anything on
Tracie from Tempe.az
This product was very light, blended great and had long lasting coverage. Did not show all my fine lines which was great.
I got this product in my influencer box. Good choice
Alani from USA
I would not recommend to anyone who loves to apply lots of makeup or a full face,this product does not blend well with certain products, and leaves patchy spots on blemishes. I would recommend to someone who has very few troubled areas and wants a natural look.
I would buy it again, maybe
Jenn from Philadelphia, PA
I received this as part of a campaign and Ulta is not allowing me to name through whom I received it. I have to say that I did like this product. It worked well and was not sticky. I didn't need to use a powder over it for shine as I sometimes find is needed with these types of products. However, I like my regular BB cream and probably won't be switching anytime soon. I will use this for traveling and will consider switching if my normal BB cream gets discontinued. I would say it's definitely worth trying for yourself.
Great for working and for summer
Dr Jen from Georgia
Love this bb it is awesome! Really good coverage and easy to apply. Last all day and leaves your skin feeling great!
Jenn from Salt Lake City
I received this complimentary and am totally new to the BB game. I love the way it sets the base for my foundation. Very sheer, but smooths out laugh lines and imperfections. It is supposed to help with acne but that is not really an issue for me. I would definitely buy this.
Nice sheer coverage!
crystalbright from laveen, az
This is the first time I used a BB cream. This is really nice for those days when a full coverage is just too much, like lunch with the family. It's nice that there are added benefits to better our skin.
Perfect for dry skin!
Jenn from Salt Lake City
I received this complimentary for my honest opinion of the product. First, I am totally new to the BB game. I was actually surprised at how much I liked this product. It set the stage for my foundation. It is supposed to help with acne but acne is not really an issue for me. Beautiful tint, nice scent, and minimizes laugh lines. I ly con would be that after 8 hours it seemed to shift a bit on my skin and settle around my laugh lines. Overall, a really good product though.
Doesn't work well on top of certain sunscreens
LG from Los Angeles,CA
I kept hearing raving reviews about this, so I was SUPER excited to try. I am always in the sun so I wear sunscreen everyday. My first time using this I applied my sunscreen first and then this. It would not blend properly and immediate ly started to pull. This made me sad because I wanted to love this product. The second time I tried it without my sunscreen. This application was much smoother and seamless. I love how mattifying it was ( my face is normally super oily ) and how it made my pores smaller. It lastest all day for me and gave me a natural glowy no makeup look. So if you do purchase just be sure to try it out with sunscreen under. Maybe it was just the certain sunscreen I use ( mineral lotion Australia Gold SPF 50), but it was not a pretty sure used together!
Great for a BB cream
Jen from NC
This product blends well. It is very sheer. However, it is buildable. If you want just a touch of color or want a very natural look this is an excellent product. I am a full coverage kind of person so the fact that I liked this product says a lot.
The wearability I was also impressed with. Even in 90 degree plus temps, it held up and did not melt or slide.
I love this stuff!
Aunt B from Glennville GA
I received this product for free in exchange for a honest review. This stuff is great. It is light weight, goes on smooth. I received compliments from coworkers who noticed how great this looked on. It wears well and is perfect for these hot summer days. During the summer I prefer BB cream to foundation and this stuff did not disappoint. Try it you won't be disappointed.
Light coverage for easy days
Ashley from Texas
I typically reach for full coverage products, but sometimes you just don't need that. I've started using the Dream Pure BB Cream for light coverage on days that I just don't need a full face of heavy makeup. It works well with my skin most of the day. I do have a little bit oilier skin, so it can get a little bit too shiny for my taste by the end of the day. That said, I'm not typically looking for all-day coverage with this formula. I like it, and it definitely has its place in my repertoire.
It has a light coverage, it has a matte finish for combinati

I use it after apply my moisturizer and apply with my fingers
Megan from Wichita, Ks
Purchased this because I wanted to try something different than my cover girl bb cream. After first wearing it, I was impressed with how it looked compared to other bb creams. However, half way through the day I see my face is an oily mess. I have had dry skin for the past year and I was astonished to see how oily my forehead and nose were. It looked awful. I'm going to try again, but I may go back to my cover girl bb cream.
Floridagirl from Florida
Good product, I don't like the "dewy" after look though!
Ash💕 from Las vegas
This product is okay but don't expect it to clear up your acne i guess it's good if you have a breakout and it has acne treatment in the product !
I love it!
Ceece from America
I have a lot of acne and oil but this stuff covers everything and gives my skin a matte look! I forget that it's there a lot of the time. The cream blends perfectly and I'm totally using this for the rest of my life.
Zch from Orlando, Florida
I love this bb cream! I have very red and dry skin because I used to be on a acne medicine and this bb cream helps to smooth out my textured skin, covers my redness, and does not cling to my dry patches. The cover is pretty sheer (you can still see my freckles) but it did cover my acne scarring and it covered my redness. It does not last all day and will wear off if you are outside for a long period of time.
I'm not sure what I'd do
Sarah Bo Barah from Eau Claire, WI
Now I may just not know how to use BB Cream but it did not cover up my spots as much as I would've liked. It did cover the redness and it matched my skin tone to a T.
