Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

I 'like' Maybelline on Facebook and I noticed a few weeks ago they were giving away samples of their Dream Fresh BB Cream. They are only giving away the light shade but that's fine for me so I ordered my samples straight away.


You get three samples of the BB cream which I think is very generous and it means you can try it for three days before deciding whether to purchase the full size or not.


I thought I'd pop on a picture of me without anything on my skin so you can see the difference when I have used the BB cream. So I have redness around my nose, various other areas of uneven skintone along with some lovely spots on my chin!


Maybelline claim this BB cream has 8 different benefits for the skin but lets see the actual results on me below.

First of all, I liked the light feeling this has on your skin. It doesn't feel like you're wearing any makeup which must be due to the "water-based gel formula". My face also felt really soft like velvet. I think this evened out my skintone and made it look more healthy without turning my face orange! If you look around my nose it has definitely blurred the redness too. 


I didn't think it had done a great job of concealing my spots but looking back at these photos there is a slight improvement with the BB cream on but it obviously doesn't provide full coverage. With a bit of concealer I'm sure they would look even better. I found this to give a dewy look to the skin but if you prefer the matte look you could apply a light dusting of powder over the top.

I haven't worn this outside but the fact that it contains SPF 30 is amazing. My skin burns really easily so this is a massive positive for me.

If you are thinking about trying this BB cream I definitely recommend requesting a sample as I think it's pretty good. If you would like a sample go to the Maybelline Facebook page

  1. I've been thinking about buying L'Oreal BB cream, as it's only £6.99 in Superdrug. I went in today and they had no fair products in :(. I might now try Maybelline and see how this works and consider this instead! xx

    1. I tried some of the L'oreal one on my hand and at first I thought it would be a good colour match for my skin but as I rubbed it, it turned really dark and orange! xx
