Hero beauty product - Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream

I know I'm late to the party but BB creams - wow!  Or more specifically Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream.

I knew I was going to like it as soon as I tested it in Boots.  The colour (medium) blended seamlessly with my skintone and the dry, parched skin on the back of my hand felt instantly hydrated.

I have weird skin, a mixture of very dry and congested.  I generally find that regular foundation dries out my skin & flakes around the really dry bits.  I know - attractive.  I was very pleased to find out that the BB cream kept my skin feeling constantly hydrated all day. Needless to say, it didn't flake either.  It just gave me a smooth, fresh look.  The slightly reddish bits of my complexion weren't obscured, just blurred, which was fine with me.  I prefer to be able to see the texture of the skin because it gives a fresh natural look.

You can use it with or without moisturiser.  I chose to use it on top of my moisturiser but I think that it'd be fine if I skipped the moisturiser.

Interestingly I also received rather a lot of compliments the first couple of times I wore it.  The words 'radiant' and 'well' were used rather a lot...

The only criticism I have is that I could only find it in 30ml tubes.  I found I needed to use rather a lot per application, consequently it's run out too quickly.

You can buy it in the UK for £7.99 and in the US for $8.99.

P.S.  I haven't been paid either in money or products to write this review.
