Great Coverage for a BB Cream, August 28, 2013

I enjoyed this product and will definitely buy it in the future. It goes on very smoothly, has a great scent and has great coverage for a BB Cream.BB Stands for Beauty Balm. BB creams are an all-in-one type of product that can replace several products such as moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock – though each BB Cream can advertise what they help with, so read the package.This product claims to be formulated to have tone correction and give you luminous coverage plus with a nice SPF 15. In addition the product claims to help correct dark spots in 2 weeks. I am 32 years old and do not have any dark spots on my skin yet, so I am unable to verify if this claim was accurate or not.I was debating between the light and the medium color. Because fall is approaching I opted for the light color. To compare what color foundation I have used in the past it has been Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation (Fairly Light) and Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup 3 1 oz which both I have been professionally matched to my skin tone.The color was great. It really evened out my skin tone and I appreciated the SPF 15 in the product. The other BB Cream I have used in the past has been Stila Stay All Day 10-In-One HD Illuminating Beauty Balm With Broad Spectrum SPF 30 1.3 oz which I paid nearly for and I had to say, I liked the Ponds product better and it is half the cost!Also the smell is wonderful. Has a very light flower type smell to it. Once you put it on, you do not have any scent at all so people that are sensitive to secant do not worry.

Great BB cream at a GREAT price., September 5, 2013

A few years ago, I committed a MakeUp Lovers Deadly Sin: I gave up wearing foundation. I no longer like a full-coverage look and so many foundations made me break out. I am *ahem* mature, but also still have oily skin. That’s a lethal combination when it comes to finding good skin care and foundation.I’ve been reading about BB creams but I was hesitant to try them. It seemed too good to be true and you know what they say about things that seem too good to be true. I tried a different BB cream and wasn’t excited about it but I wasn’t giving up!Pond’s Luminous Finish BB Plus Cream with SPF 15 is a great product – especially for .99! The package promises instant, natural looking coverage, that there will be visible dark spot correction in 2 weeks, there is SPF 15 with UVA/UVB protection, it has non-greasy moisturization and it’s non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores.)The coverage is natural looking. I look like me, only with better skin. It’s pretty good coverage, too. I have a dark spot on my cheek (the things they don’t tell you about aging!) and it covers it well. Further, it stays covered all day. I usually take my makeup off and wash my face about 8 PM and it’s still covered. I put it on about 7:15 or so, so that’s a full day of staying in place! I can’t say that I’ve noticed a “visible dark spot correction” as yet, but I’ll give it more time.I live in Florida and stay inside because the heat and humidity are ridiculous here in the summer time, so I can’t tell you anything about how it works for SPF. I don’t wear makeup when I go to the beach, so I didn’t test out its sunscreen abilities.It’s definitely non-greasy, but I found that it’s not enough moisturization for me. I have oily, but mature, skin and I notice that my skin looks better when I use moisturizer before the BB cream. Otherwise, I look flaky by the end of the day. If you’re younger, you might not have this problem – or if you don’t have skin that needs A LOT of exfoliation- so I’d suggest trying it without moisturizer for a few days to see how it works. It also hasn’t clogged my pores anymore than they would be anyway.

The package directions tell you to apply generously every few hours. I applied it as I would a foundation and it was good coverage. I didn’t reapply every few hours because I wasn’t using it as SPF, so I don’t know how it would look if you added more. It seems like overkill.

If you’re going to have official pictures taken for some reason wearing the BB, I’d test it out first with your phone’s camera or something. It’s called “Luminous” and there is a shiny look to your face. In real life, that doesn’t look oily, it just looks lovely. However, in pictures that shiny look can look more like you didn’t wash your face than that you have dewy, youthful skin.

I tried this in “Light” and it matched my skin tone pretty well. I meant to ask a friend who has slightly darker skin, but still fair, to try it out, but she left on vacation before I had a chance.

Overall, I’d say this is an affordable option that does pretty much all that it says it will do. I’ll try to remember to update in a few weeks and let you know if my dark spots are truly visibly less dark.

Feels nice, looks nice, September 19, 2013

This BB cream left my 43-year-old skin looking dewy and fresh. The shade is *very* light and I would only recommend it for people with very fair skin (think Irish or Nordic).I use this instead of makeup foundation. It works very well for that. It never looks caked-on or obvious.

    Evens out skin tone without the cakey makeup feel., September 22, 2012

    This review is from: L’Oreal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream, Light, 1.0 Ounces (Misc.)
    I have oily skin so I love this product as it evens out my red areas and hides pores without looking like I’m wearing make up and I have had no issues with the color (medium) and always shake the product to mix before using. It doesn’t take much and it doesn’t make my face feel caked or oily. It does feels gritty when it first comes out but it smooths out almost immediately. My only question is why is the exact same product is $18.99 on Amazon and only $8.00 at the dreaded Wal-mart. I love, love, love Amazon but not enough to pay $10 more for the same product.
