I have always used the Garnier BB Cream, but for a while i’ve been wanting to try a different BB Cream, So when i came across the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream, i had to try it.
WHAT THEY SAY: Our 1st blemish fighting BB cream helps with 8 great skin benefits! With 2% salicylic acid, for combination and/or blemish-prone skin. 2% salicylic acid is one of the highest percentages of this powerful blemish-fighter that you can get without a prescription, yet it’s gentle enough to use every day

WHAT I SAY: I was hesitant to try a new BB Cream as i’m 100% happy with my Garnier BB Cream BUT i love this BB Cream so much. I’m not one for heavy foundations that clog my pores and cause outbreaks as i have very sensitive skin and i’m prone to breakouts so easily. When when i buy new foundations or BB creams i am very cautious, but i am extremely happy with the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream. It so light on the skin and goes on smooth, it honestly feels like i’m not even wearing any makeup.
I can’t use any oily BB Creams or Foundations, so when this didn’t state that it was oil free i was hestitant, but it isn’t oily at all. It has major staying power and lasts a good 8-10 hours, i don’t even need to touch up during the day. I set with with a translucent powder and i’m good to go for the day. The added Bonus…. it has 2% Salicylic Acid to help curb Blemishes, which is a must when it comes to my skin. This is definitely a winning buy. I use the Medium shade [swatch below – left]
Salicylic acid is an excellent chemical exfoliant that can help unclog pores and treat acne
