Maybelline Dream fresh BB cream - Review






I have been reading a lot about the BB cream from many other beauty bloggers and at the weekend decided to see what it was all about. I was stuck on what product to buy, but decided to go with Maybelline dream fresh BB cream. It comes in four shades, light, medium, dark, ultimate glow. I decided to go with the light as I’m very pale and thought anything darker would make me go orange.

I tested the light in the store and found the coverage to be good but I knew a small section on my hand wouldn’t give me proper results till I got it home.  I was very excited about this one as it was on offer in superdrug 3 for 2 and I love new products joining my makeup bag.

At first I was a little unsure as it was very watery when squeezing out of the tube and was more a liquid than a gel but I was pleased after application how it turned out. I still used my motiuriser and I think that helped it stay for a full day especially as I was cooking. I did think the BB cream would be a little thicker and give better coverage as I did feel like I had to pile it on to get rid of blemishes. But for my first BB cream I am happy with the results as it does what it says on the tube.

I think once this one has been used up I will probably buy a different make and do a comparison and see which one I prefer. I did see superdrugs own BB cream which I want to try.

    I'n loving BB creams right now. I've got the Superdrug one which is about £6. I wanted to get the MUA one as its only £4 but it was sold out everywhere I looked. I'm hoping to get hold of it though and do a comparison. I find it's similar to a tinted moisturiser but gives a better coverage. Obviously it's not as good as foundation but I rarely wear foundation in the summer anyway - I think it's going to make a great holiday product! I think it will be good as a primer as well.

    1. I love the BB cream too, but would like to get another one for comparison. Would you recommend the superdrug one? I never thought of using it as primer thats a really good idea will try that tomorrow. Do you know if Boots are bring out there own BB cream or is it just superdrug at the moment?

      Also thank you for following me.

  2. I have tried both the MUA and the Maybelline one. Neither was the product for me but on balance, I'd say the MUA is much better, especially given its price. I've reviewed both on my blog - the Maybelline was today's post and the MUA is a page or 2 back. http://20somethingfreak.wordpress.com

    1. Hi

      I love your blog so cute, i'm having so much trouble finding MUA BB cream as my local superdrug doesn't stock it. I have recently brought Superdrugs own BB cream but haven't tried it yet.
