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 really like this bb cream. I have oily skin and when I use this it stays put all day!
Asuna11 from Valley
I got the medium/deep. Was looking for a lightweight face coverage that's fast and easy to apply without much blending. Little goes a long way.
This product matched my skin perfectly and blends well with fingers. Once it's dry it looks even better.
If your looking for a quick and easy coverage, go with this if it matches your skin type. I did take a risk to see if it would match lucky it did. Will get again.
Leelee from Utah
I had nothing negative to say about it. I like this bb cream. Only have tried a couple different before and this one was exactly my shade color so I approved.
Wonderful Product. I buy it over and over.
Ro from Boardman
I've used this product for a few years now. It's light, but offers a dewy coverage. The salicylic acid keeps my skin glowing. Never clogs my pores. And I love that it has a built in SPF. Good choice of colors, easily mixable for custom blending as my skin tans.
Exactly what I was looking for.
Jess from St. Clairsville OH
This is great. I have been looking for a BB cream that doesn't break the bank. It gives light coverage and doesn't dry out my face. It also does a great job at helping clear my acne.
Bad Coverage and Crumbly
Bella from New York
When I bought this at the beginning of the year, there was only one color which ended up being too orange for me but now I see there are more options. But I still won't use it again because the coverage wasn't great at all, it was crumbly, and it didn't help my sensitive skin to not breakout.
Felt like sun cream
Jenna from Chesterfield
While the overall application wasn't bad I'm not a fan of the smell and the way it feels on my skin, it feels very thick and I can feel the layer sitting on my skin. It also is so not my match, I got the lightest option possible so if you are pale with pink undertone this is so not for you.
EJ from Kentucky
Honey of you want something light with a little color and still feel a little chic this it. I like how light it feels on the face and how I didn't get to oil due to the climate because of the summer heat. Put your setting powder on than this bb cream and than set your face with a setting spray, you are good to go. You will be ready to handle the heat
My New Must Have
Shana G. from Bakersfield, CA
This has become my new daily must have! I've been using a product from L'Oréal, but it's gritty and hard to spread. The Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream goes on smooth and provides the perfect light coverage I need for work. In addition, it doesn't gather in my wrinkles or breakup and become blotchy throughout the day. Best of all, this product has really helped clear up my adult acne without drying out my skin. I will repurchase this over and over again. It just works for me!
Its so light, great for a summer dewy look
Kells from Laredo, texas
Overall, it was an amazing product that did what it said it would do
I would buy this product over and over again

Light weight but full coverage
Versatile tone for fair complexions
Gtg4ever from San Diego
I really like this product, even though I do not have acne prone skin. The finish is a natural skin finish and is definitely not drying even though it has salicylic acid in it. It left a very nice texture on my skin. I have yellow undertones and the tent worked fine, my daughter has very cool undertones and it worked fine on her as well, so the tent is versatile if you have medium or a lighter skin.

Amber from Georgia
I received this product complimentary for review purposes. It's a little more sheer than what I prefer. For me, if redness and blemishes are going to show through, I'd rather just skip makeup altogether to not have that makeup feeling on my face. I have tried tinted moisturizers that provided a little more coverage and loved them, but this one just didn't do it for me. I also noticed that for me it picked up on texture a lot so that's another reason why I tend not to reach for it. Overall it's a decent and cost effective option in those who may be looking for something with more sheer coverage.
Gloria from Hackensack NJ
Love this will continue to buy. Great for everyday use make any skin look even and flawless. Lasts all day
Like the color (I'm pretty pale)
Sb from Glendale AZ
I tried another BB cream that was the palest and it was too orange for me. So I tried this one and color light and it matches really good with my skin!! It goes on really nice (even on dry skin) and looked pretty natural. I rarely wear foundation or powder and this was a nice little way to cover some of my redness and blemishes to create a natural look and surprisingly matches my skin color quite well. Really happy with it!
Perfect for virtual meetings.
Ebo from Pittsburgh
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.
