Most Helpful Positive Review Absolutely Love this product
I love the glow, coverage, and protection that this mineral sunscreen/ foundation gives! I buy the number 2 and the number 4, so that I can mix the two according to my winter look through to my summer look, as my skin changes from a lighter, no tan, to a darker, more tan shade (1:3 in the fall and 3:1 in the late spring; while shade 1 in the winter and shade 4: in the summer). Although I am a younger looking 40 year old, I have fine lines that aren't as apparent when I use this particular product. I've made the mistake of wearing more matte cc creams, however, I recommend mixing a more matte high coverage foundation with this product if you want all the benefits it has to offer with a perfect touch of more coverage and less shine which I often do during the winter months. You have to be a bit of a mixologist when it comes to attaining the right color and the right sheen, but this is The Right Stuff!!! I do reapply after several hours to keep the radiance, and continue to protect!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review PLEASE bring back BIENFAIT TEINT? BB CREAM
I agree with the other reviews. This is oily and thick compared to BIENFAIT TEINT? BB CREAM. I don't like the matte look but prefer not to look like I'm sweaty constantly. The BIENFAIT TEINT? BB CREAM was the perfect look for those of us who prefer a natural look. I've purchased 3 other Lancome products but none of them work for me, and at this point I feel like I'm just wasting my money. PLEASE bring BIENFAIT TEINT? BB CREAM back!!!
Reviewed by 255 customers Great Coverage W/O Cakey Look
Natural Mom Look from South Carolina
This is a wonderful item if you are looking for great coverage without looking cakey. I have red, blotchy cheeks and have been using Clinique Redness Solutions liquid foundation for several years now. I wanted to switch it up and find something more for everyday, and I have found just that! It only takes a few drops of this for great coverage!
Lancome UV Expert...not loving it :(
Tracey from California
I am a long time fan of all things Lancome, but not this CC cream. The good: excellent coverage and color correction, long wearing. The bad: too thick and heavy, settles into every line and pore, overpriced for the amount of product.
If you love a thick paste than you will like this
Lisaonthelake from MI
I did not like this product at all. It was thick like a paste and the coverage was terrible. It dried my face out too. I returned this pronto.
Great For Larger Pores
ReggieM from Auburn Hills, Michigan
So far so good! This blended well with my skin and didn't accentuate my pores like other make up has. After a few hours, my face does tend to look more greasy, but I will deal with that given that I haven't been successful with anything els.

Highly recommend if you are toying with trying something new, love the creams that have moisturizer in them
Love! Conceals redness and is great for dry skin
Doodle42 from Scottsdale, Arizona
I have tried NARS, Dr. Jart, It Cosmetics and Clinique BB and CC creams. This one looks the best on my skin. I am 39 years old, have dry, sensitive skin with redness. I live in Arizona where it is extremely dry this winter. This keeps my skin hydrated with a great glow. The coverage hides sun spots and redness.
Great for dry, dull skin!
Lexi from San Diego ca
I love this product and I was really shocked the reviews weren't higher. It is definitely a product for people with dry skin. If your skin runs oily or you live in a humid climate, I would not bother! However I live in Southern California and the weather is very dry, leaving my skin dry and irritated. This has calmed my skin! I have a lot of redness due to rosacea and melasma (dark spots) from the sun. The SPF has completely removed my dark spots and I believe it even lessened my redness. It has way more coverage than I was expecting and covers very well. I still use a concealer under my eye since I have dark circles but for the rest of my face this covers and neutralizes everything. It gives my skin a hydrated dewy glow (without any shimmer or sparkles!) and just gives youthful and healthy skin finish. You will def need a setting powder with this product and if you like a matte full coverage this is not for you.
I Love this product!
Raineday from Phoenix az
I have combination skin more on the dry side though.. I've tried a lot if foundations and this is by far my favorite.. I apply it with a damp beauty blender and always apply a setting powder. It evens out my skin tone and texture, leaves my skin soft and dewy and it covers my blemishes well. Full coverage cc cream. I have light skin so I use the number 1.. I've been using this cc cream for the past 2 years and I will continue to do so. It's the only foundation I
Lancôme Does It Again!!
Sara Bee from MA
Once again Lancôme just does it best! I was searching for something that I could quickly apply with my fingers but still get some decent coverage. This provided coverage and then some! I was blown away with how long it lasted and how well it stood up underneath a mask! It does get shiny, but with a little bit of Dual Finish powder dabbed over top the shine stays under control! Absolutely amazing product!!!
Did not like
Momof3bees from WV
I normally like the look and feel of tinted cream foundation- did not like the look of this one. I love the skin feels good lancôme as well as teint idole - just not a fan of this particular Mineral cc cream.
Love this product
Nana from TX
I love everything about this product, I do not understand the negative reviews. It seems thick, but it glides on with ease and smooths out leaving a beautiful finish. It is what I was looking for, not runny like so many other CC creams that you have to build to get a decent finish. Lancome never fails and always delivers a quality product. Almost all my products are Lancome.
It's just ok
Dsis1 from midwest
This isn't bad for a tinted sunscreen, but it isn't perfect either. It is more "cake-ie" than a foundation - that is to say it shows your pores more and rather than blending in blemishes or dry spots, it tends to stick to them and emphasize them. The color blends pretty well though, which I was concerned about since there are few to choose from. Bottom line: I'll wear it sometimes for outdoor events, but it isn't something I would wear if I want to look polished.

Great for smoothing out skin & sunspots
Lancome UV Expert Mineral Sunscreen CC Cream SPF 50
ShopsalotinFLA from FL
I wanted to try this product for many reasons. I am very familiar with the Lancome name. I also live in Florida and I wanted to try this Mineral Cream on my face because of the 50 SPF factor. The only thing I don't like about it, is that my face looks shiny after applying it. I read the box (after purchase & opening the product) and it states it leaves a velvety finish, but I would have preferred a matte finish. I'll take more time to read the fine print more carefully the next time. This cream blends evenly. NOTE:This is actually a sunscreen product. I like the fact that it is unscented.
What can Lancome recommend to replace BT?
alane from Northern California
This CC cream looks like you could fry an egg on my face. It has a thick, "wet" appearance. I'm incredibly disappointed. What can Lancome recommend to replace Bienfait Teinte BB, #3 Naturel? This CC product was a waste of time and money.
Becca from NC
Makes me look very greasy. It is super thick. Good coverage but I have to use a matte setting powder with it. It makes my skin break out. Won't buy again.
Teabiscuit from Colorado
I wanted something that wouldn't settle or accentuate lines and not too heavy and am willing to pay for a product that works. I've tried Armani, Chanel, Tilbury, Algenist, etc. Thought I'd give Lancôme a shot. I was really impressed. Did not settle and covered well. I have some sun issues and it really evened out my tone. It was a little too shiny the first time but I over applied and mistakenly put moisturizer under a moisturizer *forehead smack*. It keeps me moisturized and stayed put. I really like it. I didn't think it was too heavy. Compared to Algenist tinted moisturizer it has more pigment and better coverage. If you are looking for something really light that doesn't feel like make up on your face this isn't it. Compared to Armani, Armani is really light but not best coverage for my sun issues.
My go to
Marie from TN
Don't let bad review stop you from trying it. I love how fresh and natural my face look. A little bit of products goes a long way I usually put it on with a sponge. During summer I used it instead of foundation.
Thick as a brick
SleepDoc from Denver
If you want extreme coverage this is for you
If you're looking for natural coverage head in the other direction
Don't Let Bad Reviews Deter You
DAM from KS
I really like this product! The shade range could be better; I'm very fair, and based on reviews, I purchased the shade 2. I can use it when I do or don't have a spray tan. I usually use a medium coverage foundation because of some mild rosacea, but the coverage is fantastic, and I think I like this better than the medium coverage foundations! A little goes a long way, and it seems to apply better with fingers vs a brush (which I don't like bc I feel like it pulls at the skin). However, it's too thick to apply well with a brush, I would think. This wouldn't deter me, though, I would purchase again. Gave 4 stars because of the thickness.
Yoli13 from Texas
I love this cc mineral cream. It's texture is real thin not like a regular thick heavy foundation
become my tried and true!!
Des from Massachusetts
I use this as a summer foundation and its perfect. i got it when it was on sale during the beginning of quarantine and used it a few times but this past week i truly fell in love with it.
Don't let the bad reviews comparing to an old product deter!
VAReviewer from Virgini
I let the bad reviews on this stuff steer me away from buying it for a few months, but I'm so thankful a friend tried it (without first seeing reviews). It came highly recommended, and did NOT disappoint! Its a medium to full coverage, but also has CC benefits. The SPF is perfect for the Summer, and it gives a glowy, fresh finish. I am in LOVE. It also wears a lot better than the IT CC cream (especially with a dusting of the "long time no shine" finishing powder in areas prone to shine). If you're looking for this to be the same as an old product, it apparently may not work out. If you're wanting a natural finish foundation, with coverage but no "cake face"... try it!
Heavier than I anticipated
Salley from AL
I have not decided if I will buy again
Mabe from Florida
Love it! No grassy and is a full coverage! Best sun protector ever!!
