Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light | Review

Hey girlie's!!!

I recently picked up my very first BB Cream, I must admit I picked it up on a complete whim as I had purchased a Maybelline Mascara and there was a buy one get on half price offer on which obviously I couldn't refuse, so as I could get a BB Cream for £3.99 I thought I may as well finally give it a go. I've been using the Maybelline BB Cream for around 3 weeks now and I have to say I absolutely love it, its become a must in my foundation/base routine and its made such a difference in how fresh/dewy my skin looks and feels.

Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream claims that its thin, gel based formula enhances the skin with its 8 benefits in 1, which are...

Creates a natural glow.
Compliments the skin tone.
SPF30 UV protection.
Hydrates all day.
Blurs imperfections
Oil free and non greasy.
Looks visibly smooth
Feels fresh.

I have to say I completely agree with all 8 claims. It matches my skin tone a treat, leaves my skin feeling soft and glowy, its a light coverage BB Cream so only blurs imperfections slightly so I still add a small amount of concealer on a couple of blemishes I have, it never clings to dry patches that I'm prone to getting and doesn't make my skin feel oily or greasy at all and I love the fact it has the added SPF 30 making it perfect for the summer time wear or if your on holiday and you want something lightweight with SPF this is perfect.

My favourite way to use the BB Cream at the moment in this dull, cold weather is to use it as a base. I pop a pea sized amount on the back of my hand and use my Real Techniques buffing brush to lightly buff the BB Cream into my skin, and in spring/summer this would actually be enough for me with a small amount of concealer, but as its still cold in the UK I have been getting a slight bit of redness so I've been using half a pump of Rimmels Wake Me Up Foundation buffed over the top and the results are gorgeous, it's not cakey, glowy and healthy looking and lasts all day without a single touch up!!
As you see, the skin on my hand after the BB Cream has been blended looks so much better and so glowing!

The plastic tube packaging is also cute and quite youthful, it has no dispenser or pump though, its one of the squeezable, screw cap jobbie's which I do like, at least you know you can use all the product up and not waste any, I also cut these sort of plastic tubes open when I think I'm finished as there always 2-3 applications left in little secret hiding places within the tube ha ha.

Overall I adore this BB Cream, I honestly never thought I'd really get into BB Creams but after using Maybellines offering I have been pleasantly surprised and some what converted. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a fresh, glowy, light feel to the skin, or if your looking for a nice base at this time of year for under your foundation you just have to give this a go, I'm sure you will love it as much as I do.

Have you tried Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream beaut's?? What did you think??
