BB Cream Review – Maybelline Dream Fresh BB – 8-in-1 BB Cream

I was recently introduced to Maybelline New York’s new Dream Fresh BB cream…

It claims to deliver 8 different benefits in a single step:

  • Protects with SPF30 (love this!)
  • Oil free and non-greasy (those that find BBs too heavy will appreciate this)
  • Blurs imperfections
  • Enhances (?)
  • Brightens and creates a natural glow
  • Compliments skin tone
  • Soothes and hydrates (contains skin hydrating ingredients including glycerin)
  • Feels ultra light and fresh on the skin

I went for the Universal Glow shade – an apricot shade that promises to boost and brighten any skin tone.

It looks super orange from the tube but it actually blends in (even to my pale skin) very well. These pics show my skin with just the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB – 8-in-1 BB Cream in Universal Glow. There is no concealer, powder, bronzer or blusher.

I really like the result. It’s a lovely natural glowy look, and it subtly adds some well needed colour to my pale skin. It does look quite orange at first, but as you blend it, it tones in well. The ease of blending is apparently thanks to its formula which combines gel with water for extra glide.

I think as it has the apricot colour it’s best to start with small amounts and build up if you need more. It works well under the eye area and conceals any darkness that the translucency of the delicate skin reveals.

This is great if you’re looking for a nice natural, healthy look. But I also think it would make a great primer, especially if you’re looking to add a bit of glow and also get high sun protection if you’re foundation is lacking it.

I shall definitely be using this during the Summer and on my holidays. The non-oily finish and high SPF will be perfect for hot weather.

Available nationwide from April RRP £7.99. I think that’s a pretty amazing price for the sun protection alone!

Are you interested in BB creams? What will you be wearing on your skin this Summer?
