Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Review: A BB cream is always a coveted product…it saves time, delivers a good finish and is my go-to solution for most days. I have experimented with a lot of BB creams with sometimes impressive and sometimes unimpressive results.The Maybelline dream BB pure 8 in 1 beauty balm and skin clearing perfector was a recent buy. Maybelline mostly launches decent products and I was out of BB creams.One fine day I decided to try out Maybelline dream BB pure 8 in 1 beauty balm and skin clearing perfector…let’s see how this one fared…
My Experience with Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
The packaging is rather cute…this comes in a flattish tube with sky blue lettering and coffee colored tint. Though the product said 30 ml when I first checked it out I was rather shocked by how small it looked when it arrived. I am guessing this will last only for a couple of months…that too when not used regularly. Paying 1300 INR for this small a tube seemed too much.
Its winter and that means more layers on the skin as well as body. Winter does bad things to my t zone which flares up with sporadic acne. This product has 2percent salicylic acid which is great for fighting acne and pimples.
It claims to hide imperfections, reduces the appearance of pores, minimizes redness, blends in with skin tone, hydrates, smoothens and mattifies…all with a 0percent oil and lightweight feel. Phew….that’s one tall claim…I thought.
I have the product in medium sheer tint which is okay for light Indian tone skin. There is a medium-light tint too which will be suitable for paler skin…I had tried it out at a friend’s place…it looked artificial on my skin. A very small amount of the product is needed to cover the face…it evens out nicely with a nice moisturizing effect. However, the finish is not sheer. It’s a bit chalky. The product takes about 3 minutes to set in… and post that the skin looked even, blemish free and pretty. However, moisturization is not one of its functions through the product says so in its packaging literature.
Post a few uses…my t zone looked healthier. It’s great to have a makeup product that has some skincare benefits too. So out of all the claims made by bb pure 8 in 1 beauty balm…only the blending in, minimizing pores, reducing acne and evening out the skin tone claims held true. It definitely doesn’t moisturize…people living in dry climes and those who have absolutely dry skin will find it unsuitable.
Overall Performance of Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
The USP of this Maybelline dream BB pure 8 in 1 beauty balm and skin clearing perfector shade is its decent coverage, skin benefiting properties and pore minimizing features. It’s a good product that’s travel-friendly, cute to look at and has an inoffensive fragrance.
3 minutes is all that it takes to get a clearer, blemish-free complexion…this product is nice as a makeup base however it’s inordinately expensive and doesn’t do all that it claims to.
Would I recommend?
I would recommend dream BB pure 8 in 1 beauty balm and skin clearing perfector to women with combination/ oily skin living in a humid climate… without budget restrictions. This is pretty expensive and the quantity given looks disappointing. I am pretty sure that a less costly bb cream could deliver the same kind of results. I am probably not going to repurchase unless a tempting sale is on ;)
Therefore I am going to carry on in my quest for the perfect bb cream. A ⅗ for this one.
