Review: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream

Happy August!




Before / After

Pros
- SPF 30
- Evens skintone
- Light coverage
- Hydrating
- Doesn't feel heavy on the skin

Cons
- Limited color selection
- No long wave UVA protection

Value
$7 for 1 oz / 30 ml

Verdict
I didn't like this much when I first used it because I had applied a moisturizer beforehand, it basically wiped away on my skin and did nothing. One day, I tried it after using toner without moisturizer and it gave me a lot better coverage, and I've been using it daily ever since. The BB doesn't really give much coverage compared to the Asian BB creams, but I like to use it on days when I'm just lazy and doesn't feel like putting much on.
It goes on very dewy and makes me look kind of shiny, sometimes my hair even sticks to my face more as a result of this BB cream, so I don't exactly love it but I like the SPF 30 and how light it feels on the skin.

I really doubt that 1.15% of TiO2 would give you any perceivable protection, let alone SPF30 though. For some reason I am just thinking American (skincare) company just put some sunscreen ingredient and put whatever number they want.

I mean, Shiseido sunscreen has spf38 and it has close to 10% of ZnO2 in addition to 7% of other chemical sunscreens...

@Citrine Good point, maybe that's why I'm getting freckles on my upper cheek lol. The Shiseido sunscreen I found makes me break out b/c it's not oil free, I recently started using their Urban Environment UV Protector, a little dry but I like it so far
