This used to be my favorite every day makeup but now I can't find my shade, light/sheer, anywhere and all the other colors are too dark. This bb cream was good for not worsening my acne and not making me look cakey. It evened my skintone and softened hyperpigmentation. It was light enough to wear every day, add a little bit of the matte powder to hide any discoloration and I was good to go. Only downside is that after a couple of hours my skin feels extremely greasy. Hopefully I will find the light/sheer shade again one day.
I loved this product! Felt so good in it didn't have to do anything with it,helped with my acne a little bit, and wore it probably every day. I used to wear color shade 100, but I guess that color is no longer available? It was the only thing that was close enough to my skin tone that I didn't have to mix with something or wear something heavy with it too. Now the lightest shade is 110 and I'm sad because now I have to go out and spend $30 on makeup that does the same acne fighting, but isn't the exact color of my skin, so I have to mix it with a cheap, super light color which defeats the purpose of getting acne fighting makeup. Wish you would bring it back.

Over 50 - Oily/Combo Skin with some large pores: I had high hopes for this product when I bought it, and even went into it understanding that color matching would be a challenge. I actually bought two colors, fair and medium, and custom blended them for a better match. I applied it first with my fingers, but turned to first a foundation brush for more even application, and then a damp makeup sponge to further even it out. At first I absolutely loved the look, which was light, natural and looked like healthy skin. The product felt weightless and offered enough coverage to tone down some of my imperfections while still allowing the natural pink flush of my cheeks to come through. But the fresh skin look didn't last. Within an hour my skin started to look greasy, orangey and cakey in my pores and fine lines. I blotted and dusted the T-zone with a finishing powder, but the airbrushed effect only lasted about 30 minutes before the shine returned and my pores and wrinkles were again obvious.
My second application I decided to apply a pore minimizing, matifying primer to my skin first. I still had to use makeup tools to get the best application, and the fresh skin look definitely lasted longer, but the product still broke down after just a couple hours. (I skipped using powder this time.)
I have also tried using setting spray to prolong the initial clean-skin look, but to no avail. My conclusion is, if you have younger, non-oily skin, I think this product would be a real winner. If you have lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and oily skin, I doubt you'll be happy with the results on your face. It does, however, make a nice tinted moisturizer for you neck and decollete to help match your face after applying foundation. And a little setting spray on top keeps the BB Cream from transferring to your clothing.

It a good product not full coverage, but never claimed to be very natural finish and always eats with a full coverage concealer

I've been repurchasing this for years! It's perfect for those days that you want a little coverage but don't want to wear a full face of foundation. I have tried looking for more expensive versions and always go back to this.

This is litetally my longest running go-to of ALL beauty products I own & have tried. I pray they never discontinue it. It protects, it heals, it moisturizes, it conceals, it preps, it prevents, it applies like a dream, it adjusts, not sticky, not greasy, not oily, not messy, I mean…. It is just wonderful. If you dont love it, you just dont have combo/oily skin & you don't understand the purpose of it. It does everything it claims and more.
Paula from Miami
This product is my Go-To for my day to day. It is very lighweight, so it's almost like you are not wearing makeup. The coverage is low-medium and pair with a concelar, it gives you that natural beauty look.
Dianna from Texas
Perfect shade. It does dry quick so move fast.I moisturize and then I use elf putty primer to underneath. Looks great. Stays great. Perfect for summer.

DJB from Spokane, WA
I have oily skin so by the end of the day (12 hours later or so) I do have to blot. but it goes on so nicely and blends to my skin tone. it's lightweight and so easy to apply

I normally wear the fit me foundation in shade 118, but I wanted to find a lighter no-fuss base that I could apply with my fingers so I tried this bb cream. I use shade 120, which would normally be too dark but is sheer enough to work with my skintone. It applies smoothly and looks great on the skin. I haven't noticed any skin-clearing qualities yet, but time will tell. My only wish is that they would make this in a matte version! I have combo/oily skin, and while the dewy look is nice initially, it does make me look shiny later on. Will definitely continue to use this when I'm traveling or want something to quickly give me an even base.

This was saur cute and light! I do think this is more for people with neutral skintones dont come for me tho I SAID I THINK. I have rosacea and this covers it beautifully!
Tali from Illinois
This is the best BB cream you could ever invest in. It gives me just enough coverage to even out my skin tone without looking cakey. It has a beautiful dewy finish. I think the heat of my skin perfects it because as the day goes on, it makes my skin look so smooth. I'm acne prone, and I've slept in it before (I know, my bad) without breakouts the next morning. For the price it's at, everyone should try it.
Kailey from United States of America
This BB cream has worked well for me so far. No breakouts, sufficient coverage, and lasts me most of the day.
Dimes from NJ
This bb cream is awesome, gives a nice natural glow, natural look. After I finish my face with my concealers and powders it turns out so beautiful and not cakey!
Ellie from Cincinnati, Ohio
This product is amazing. Has a natural finish and makes my skin look so pretty. This is so good! It does cover my acne and looks amazing with any other products. Beware!!! It does have yellow undertones for people with pinky tones.

Have been using this for years. makes my skin smooth and helps with acne
Riah from East Texas
I do use this product as a foundation sometimes and the the coverage is good. It was a little bit drying to my face without a primer though. It does minimize my acne problem which is a major plus!
Bri from San Diego
My skin has been horribly congested for years because of regular foundation. Since I switched to this my skin so so happy and smooth. It definitely has its down sides. Doesn't stay on as well as a regular foundation (to be expected) and it tends to "roll" or "bead" up if rubbed too much. I have a an olive neutral skin tone so I mix the light and medium shades to get my color. It not the most amazing product but it looks great and doesn't break out my skin most of all.

I liked how easy this is to apply but it was too sticky. I have dry skin and when I wore this, I couldn't touch my face all day. Also the lightest color was still too dark for my skin color.
Lablover from Ithaca, NY
Very think and not what I was expecting at all. I have the CC cream by them and will be switching back ASAP. Not what you think of for your typical BB cream of being on the lighter side
rachel_lynn from Canton, Ohio
I used this primer for 2 days and I have 3 new pimples. Even if it weren't for the pimples, I'm not impressed with how thick this primer seems. It's not easy to blend at all. Looks like I'm still on the hunt for a lightweight primer that won't break the bank.
Brewski from AR
I cannot express how much I love this product! I've been using for several years now and finally decided to say SEE YA to thicker, full coverage foundations and only use this! Gives a wonderful natural look and very lightweight! I have PCOS and the acne that comes with. This truly helps fight the acne! Other foundations or creams ALWAYS break me out horrifically, but this doesn't! It blends so well and covers and blurs blemishes and scarring! Comes off easily with micellar water too!
chmidee from USA
Popular back in the DAY so I wanted to give it a try! This is a 'your skin but better', very natural and skin-esque product. Not for a long-wear look, but a go-to for every day/casual look. Wears well on combo sensitive skin.
KathM from Overland, Mo
Creamy, smooths in easy.Good light color to use before tanning.
Cmill from Fairfax, VA
CG makes a better BB cream. I didn't see a difference in acne clearing. The salicylic acid wasn't worth it to me, just incorporate a good acne fighting product in your skin care regime and find a better foundation than this.
