*Review* Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

I was recently browsing the make-up shelves of Tesco (as you do) and came across the Maybelline BB Cream. I've never really been drawn to BB cream because I like coverage, and didn't really see the point; however, any of you that live in the UK know that the last few weeks have been holiday hot, this has meant constant re-powdering and my makeup had been feeling very heavy. So I thought why not try it.

None of the testers really matched my skin so I decided to go with Universal Glow. As you can see from the picture below it is a very potent orange so I was a little worried about trying this out, however it seemed to have a lot of benefits and for the price…well you just can’t go wrong.






This BB cream claims to offer 8 benefits in 1:
<!--[if !supportLists]-->1.       <!--[endif]-->Creates a natural glow
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2.       <!--[endif]-->Compliments skin-tone
<!--[if !supportLists]-->3.       <!--[endif]-->SPF30 UV protection
<!--[if !supportLists]-->4.       <!--[endif]-->Hydrates all day
<!--[if !supportLists]-->5.       <!--[endif]-->Blurs imperfections
<!--[if !supportLists]-->6.       <!--[endif]-->Oil free, non-greasy
<!--[if !supportLists]-->7.       <!--[endif]-->Looks visibly smooth
<!--[if !supportLists]-->8.       <!--[endif]-->Feels fresh

At first I thought, this is never going to look good, it’s so orange. But the old saying was definitely true; don’t judge a book by its cover. It applied really orange at first, but once I started to blend in with my fingers (which took a bit of doing) I must say I was rather impressed.
At first glance I was still skeptical but the more I applied the better it looked. If you’re having a bad day with your skin then I would avoid this as coverage isn't great, but it doesn't claim to have great coverage, which I like.. Honestly is the best policy ;)
In terms of what it does claim, I think they've done a pretty good job. I wouldn't go as far as saying it hydrates all day, but in terms of everything else its bang on.

One thing I would like to add that I found a little bizarre however is this; after about an hour I looked in the mirror and to my surprise it seemed to look a little better than at first. I have noticed this every time I've used it. I've never experienced this with a product before, and I’m not too sure if this is just me but I definitely felt that it looked more flawless after a short while before gradually fading during the day, like most products.

This is product definitely something I would re-purchase, and would highly recommend to people with clear skin who are just looking to even out their skin tone. For those good skin days or when you’re having a lazy day and just want that slight glow

Have you tried it?? What did you think?
