Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Review


When I first bought this BB Cream, I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting too much from it. It claims to be an '8-in-1 BB Cream', saying that it:

1. Conceals Imperfections
2. Helps protect against the appearance of blemishes
3. Oil-free, non-greasy
4. Minimises the appearance of pores
5. Clarifies the skin's look
6. Conceals redness
7. Hydrates and smoothes
8. Compliments skin tone

These are pretty big claims for one product, which only cost £6.99. But I do have to say that it does meet most of them. I'm not sure that it minimises the appearance of pores particularly well, but this doesn't matter if you use something like Baby Skin or Porefessional underneath, or powder over the top. But, otherwise, I love it.

I got it in the Shade Light (shoutout to the pale people) and it is 'For Oily Skin'. It definitely makes me a lot more matte and prevents oils from reaching the surface of my skin, meaning that not as much powder is needed. 

It has SPF 15, meaning that it will protect your skin from the sun. It is perfect is you live in a hot country or if you are on holiday, and you don't want to bother with a full face of makeup, but just want a bit of coverage.

I didn't buy BB Cream for a while, because I thought that the coverage would be rubbish and that all of my redness and blemishes would be exposed. However, the coverage is actually really great and it doesn't take much of the product to get these results. I have had this tube since August and it is lasting extremely well, bearing in mind how often I use it. On days, where my skin needs a bit more coverage, I will mix some of the BB Cream with foundation and it gives amazing results.

I can see a difference when I have used this BB Cream, as my skin feels a lot more fresh and clear. It also leaves my face feeling very moisturised and hydrated. Part of the reason for the clear skin it leaves, is because it contains 2% Salicylic Acid, which I found out is a good treatment for acne. It is so light on the skin and just feels like you have put moisturiser on. Also, it sinks into the skin very well and is  easy to blend in (I usually just use my hands).

If you have tried this out, let me know what you think of it and also let me know if you have any other recommendations for different BB Creams.
