After reading great reviews about this product, I was excited to try this product. I used it for about 2 weeks, over my sunscreen, alone and at night, over my moisturizer. This product claims it Prime, Perfect, Hydrate, and Correct. I didn't find this to be true because: 1. it isn't enough to be a moisturizer, I am someone with combination skin and I was left with dry patches. 2. does not smooth out your skin; it lacks texture to say it is a primer, 3. a concealer corrects, not this, 4. provides no coverage. I had high hopes for this bb cream but in the end, I was disappointed in it.

I was really looking forward to trying this product, however once I received the tube and read the ingredients it contained acrylates - an ingredient in many products that I am allergic to. Sorry to say I could not try it.

I was excited to try this product but after using it, I'm disappointed. It didn't do anything for me. I was hoping it would help even out my skin tone, but after applying it, the dark spots were more pronounced. I really couldn't tell the difference in my skin at all.

I usually wear the light shade in numerous other BB creams but this brand was way too dark. Even with a light application I looked very orange. I tried it 3 times and even had coworkers comment on my complexion. I was not happy with this product.

I have to admit that I'm not a huge L'oreal fan since they still live in the stone ages and test on animals. But I decided to try this BB cream for SheSpeaks since 1) I really enjoy this community and 2) as an aesethetician I hope to shed some light on the ingredients in this product. I am in my thirties but suffer with acne cosmetica. I will break out from artifical colors, silicones, etc. At first glance I noticed skin conditioning ingredients & hydrating ingredients, isononyl isononatnoate & glycerin. Then I just got stressed out reading the ingredients. Holy Geez, it's a huge list! Does a product really need that many ingredients? Of course I saw the silicone based polymers which I knew would cause a breakout. I then noticed some irritating ingredients such as phenoxyethanol and bismuth oxychloride. Really L'oreal? Your product needs all this? Anyways I do have a light skin tone but I"m not the fairest, I usually am the 2nd or 3rd from the lightest color available and the shade Light was way too dark on me. I had a huge mask of demarcation. I also found this product very hard to spread evenly. Once I was able to spread I noticed that it didn't cover anything. My redness and dark circles were still clearly visible only now with a too dark shade of foundation. One week later all those breakouts came to a surface from the silicones. I would not recommend this product or ever use this again.

This was not for me. It made my skin look ashy, it did not illuminate, even out my skin tone nor did it perfect anything. As a primer it still gives off an ashy effect however, it does prevent your foundation from oxidizing quickly.

I was disappointed! It didn't cover like i had thought it was going to. Plus it made my face look orange. It just didn't blend well and it made my face look dull.

I was not pleased with the way the BB cream made my skin feel. If it had SPF like other brands and offered real moisture I'd give it at least three stars.

I wasn't very impressed. The product didn't look very natural and you can't use other products with this because then it gets cakey. I wouldn't purchase this product.

I really wanted to love this BB Cream but the fact is that it just does not work for deep brown girls like myself. The pearl like color doesn't adjust to all skin tones so I was left looking rather ashy. Additionally, the cream did the opposite of hydrate for me. I'm sure his works wonderfully for those who have more fair skin but this is definitely not for darker girls.

Do not like

The product comes out of the tube as a thick, unpleasant white paste that drags the skin when you try to apply it. It's supposed to change color on your skin, but it does NOT; it leaves a cloudy white layer on the skin that makes you look sick. It has zero coverage, and thus does not improve, enhance, perfect, correct, cover or conceal anything. It doesn't even moisturize!! It provides no benefits whatsoever, and leaves a nasty, thick, stiff layer of gunk on your skin.

Yuck! Sorry, but this isn't for me. First, the color fair is too dark for my skin tone. I don't understand why these companies are coming out with only a couple colors, they need many more. I need a very fair pink cool tone, not a warm yellow fair tone. Second, when you apply with your hand, it's really hard to wash it off your hand. Third, it irritated my skin, so I couldn't use it anymore.

It was just okay to me. I tried it several days and I just don't like the way my skin looks when I put it on.

I didn't like this BB Cream. My color was deep, and it made my skin an awful gray color!
