Being the product junkie that I am, of course I had to give one of these highly exalted creams a try. Unfortunately, not too many companies are on board with making BBs for darker skin, so my options were limited. I did get lucky and find that Maybelline makes a brown girl friendly shade! The fact that it was ten bucks vs some other BBs which ranged from $20-30, made Maybelline's the easy choice.
Enough of my rambling, let's get to the review!
Product- Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Deep
Claims made- 8 in 1 skin protector which
1. Blurs imperfections
3. Evens skin tone
6. Protects with SPF 30
8. Zero oils and heavy ingredients
Rating : 8
On a scale of 1-10 with 1 meaning I'd rather rub a hedgehog against my face and 10 being good enough to slap your momma for, I'd give this BB a solid 8. I wore it for a week and really liked how sheer it applied. I LOVED that the sunscreen in it didn't make me break out since so many products containing it make my skin freak out. Also, I initially thought listing a characteristic of the product (zero oils and heavy ingredients) as one of it's skin benefits was lame. However, after wearing it and comparing it to the myriad of other products that go on my face, I did notice how light it felt and often forgot I had it on. For a product with an SPF of 30 to feel light and airy is kind of amazing if you ask me! It did seem to brighten my skin, and hydrate and all that good stuff. So, while I wouldn't slap my momma for it, I would buy it again.
