Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream review

Hello lovely people, so I am back from a lovely week away and back to normal. I thought I would kick off the week with a review I have been asked to do and that is the Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream.
I picked this up at the beginning of summer and to be honest it has been a life saver and I have worn it everyday of the summer. The thing with BB cream is that it is a lot lighter then foundation and for summer that is perfect. It is also for oily skin and although I don't class my skin as oily during the summer I think I need that little bit extra coverage. This BB cream also contains 2% salicylic acid which basically means it is prevents spots. This BB cream claims to do these 8 things:

The application with this product is good, it is really light on your skin so looks really natural, there is the option to build it up though if your skin isn't looking that great and I think it is really easy to do so with this product. I think this products works well with being applied with your hands or a brush, however I prefer to use a real techniques face brush to blend it all in. The good thing about this is that it really blends well into your skin so doesn't leave you with lines if you are adding more product to certain areas of your face.

The only problem I would say is the colour selection, it only comes in light or medium so there is not much to choose from if you are in between that, however I do think if you blended them both together or just blended one with a darker or lighter foundation then that could work well too.

I think this is a really good product if you are just beginning to get into makeup and want something light for your skin. However it is also really good for the no makeup, makeup days now that it is getting into winter. I definitely will be repurchasing this product.

Have you tried this BB cream?

I hope you have enjoyed this, let me know if there is anything else you would like me to review.

Love Grace x

  2. Nice post! Wanted to try this but after the fail of the brand's first BB cream I didn't have the guts to give this one a go.


    1. Thank you! Yeah I didn't like the first one, I think because this has a lower spf it makes it a lot lighter.
