This bb cream is moisturizing and creamy. I have oily to combo skin with very big pores, so this BB cream made my skin looking a bit shiny. Illuminated, yes on a border of shiny. Love that evens my skin out (I have sun damaged pigmentation splotches). Though I do not use it as an spf product as to get labeled coverage of SPF15, I would need to cake it on in huge amount (1.3grams at least just on my face). and this would cause problems with my big pores (and make them look even worse). On its own is great in light layer just to blur stuff and hydrate, but if on the sun I use highest spf50 for proper protection (just because I have skin condition that even in shade can get worse with sun reflection on light surfaces)

This is an absolutely fabulous bb cream. I adore a good bb cream in place of foundation, a little lighter and more natural. This burts bees bb cream with spf 15 gives me sun protection, a gorgeous tint of colour and super hydrated skin. This is so easy to use, it glides over skin like a breeze and leaves my skin smooth soft and glowing. It gives me a dewey, natural luminous finish that I love. It evens out my skin tone and hides imperfections, even fine lines. It doesnt clog my pores or go oily through the day. I simply blend this with my fingers, its lightweight and blends easily. If I want more colour or definition i simply apply a little bronzer or blush to my cheekbones.I think this is great value for money, its packaged nicely with no scent. It comes in two shades so its easy to get a perfect match and i love the luminous quality it gives my skin. Love this product so much and highly recommend it.
I've always preferred BB creams to heavy foundations and use them almost on a daily basis, so finding a good one has been a priority. I love how natural this Burt's Bees one is as well as how moisturising it is! The added SPF is a definite bonus for the days I forget to apply sunscreen. I use the light/medium colour and it matches my skin tone perfectly while also adding a little luminance. I don't put any other products on my face with it because it provides all the coverage I need, leaving my skin looking clean, healthy and smooth without leaving a cakey or powdery finish. The pores around my nose area are also covered quite nicely! I would highly recommend this BB cream to anyone looking for a more natural coverage.
- Good colour match
- Solid coverage
- Illuminates skin (dewy finish)
- Isn't drying (so no creasing)
- Slightly more expensive than the average BB cream
A wonderful BB cream that spread easily on my face. I’m attracted to it’s cute packaging and natural formula it offers. I like that it has spf15 too although. The formula is thicker than other BBcream but it blended well to my skin.
I suggest to wear a light serum, primer or moisturiser prior to use this so it will last longer.
Overall very happy with my purchase.
Wow this BB cream blew me away. I have quite fair skin with cool undertones and was afraid the light/medium colour would be too dark. Somehow the colour matches your skin tone and blends perfectly.
The cream has a herbal fragrance but disappeared quickly.
The consistency of the cream is a little thicker than most of the other BB's but it absorbed into my skin quite nicely. I did find that it was less moisturising than other brands so I would suggest using a moisturiser before applying as dry areas were highlighted.
Spreading the cream was easy with my fingertips although a sponge would be handy.
Surprisingly the cream stayed put for the entire day, including during and after my workout. A fast pat and everything looked great again.
A BB Cream with 98.9% natural ingredients and SPF 15 protection, almost too good to be true right?
But Burt’s Bees have been working on a concoction to widen the eyes of all beauty lovers. A Super Hydrating formula developed with Noni Extract which is clinically shown to improve the condition of your skin. This BB cream also contains Sun Flower Oil; especially useful for oily skin.
The Burt’s Bees BB Cream is available within two shades. During my trial I have been able to test light/medium, which matched my pale completion perfectly. I found it to be a light foundation, that looked very natural. I applied the BB cream in the mornings before work and it wore well, lasting the whole day. I do not wear make up often because it often affects my skin, though the natural products in this BB cream were the differing factor, ensuring my skin remained clear and could breathe. With a pleasant subtle natural fragrance, the BB cream had an even consistency making it easy to apply and left my skin illuminated.
I would have loved the BB cream to have a stronger SPF protection, as we etch into summer. Though that would simply be inefficient for the winter. A good All rounded product!
Overall: The Burt's Bees BB Cream left my skin feeling almost naked, a light distribution of sun kissed colour, leaving my skin moisturized and able to tackle the sun.
I love BB Creams and this in my opinion is certainly one of the best I've tried. I love that it has a good Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in it so I wore this a lot during the winter months because that's when I wear an SPF 15 product the most. It also has a good colour range and though I wore the Medium during winter I am now finding that I could switch up to the darker colour as my skin tans very easily and I go quite dark for a caucasian skin.
The firming formula feels rich and moisturising at first when I apply it but after five minutes the BB Cream 'sets' and forms a semi-matte finish that is dewy and gives a hydrating feel to the skin. I love the way this sits on the skin - it tends to naturally sink into the skin but also create a lightweight feel on the skin while it firms it up. It doesn't feel heavy at all but it does give a good light to medium coverage which I find stays on well all day. It is a buildable formula - I wait around five minutes before adding a bit more in places where I may need it. It makes my skin tones appear more even and after washing it off at night my skin feels and looks better than what it did in the morning - my skin looks nurtured and hydrated. So it's actually good to use on the skin because of the natural extracts and this formula is 98.9% natural as stated on the tube. After wearing this regularly my skin appears healthy and firmer.
The tube is a flat, easy-carry tube that is perfectly designed for handbag or travelling. The lid is secure and flat-shaped like the tube. The scent of this BB Cream is minimal but it does have a slight natural type of scent to it; a scent that you would expect of a Burt's Bees product.
Those who want to have a firmer appearance to their skin would love using this product. Even with my oily T Zone I found this BB Cream to be suitable. I have dryer ageing areas around my mouth and eyes and this BB Cream can go across several different skin types on my face with success! Those want a nurturing and natural BB Cream would love this product too. I have pimple-prone skin but this BB Cream does not make me breakout.
The only con is that the SPF is not 30 or 50 so for me I can't use this for a summertime product unless I used some extra SPF50/30 product underneath. Otherwise it's a fantastic winter product because of the way it not only protects the skin from the sun but also from moisture loss from heaters and air-conditioners. It's an excellent BB Cream for when you only need an SPF 15.
Burt’s Bees BB Cream SPF15 is my new favourite product! It is the most wonderful BB cream I have ever used. I have the light/medium shade which is perfect for my fair skin. I love this product because it has the results of a foundation but with the feel of a moisturiser.
After you have applied your skincare products, squeeze out a small amount of the BB cream and apply with your fingers. It blends in very well, leaving your skin feeling hydrated, even and looking radiant and rosy. The consistency of the cream is quite thick, but it blends easily, leaving your complexion looking super healthy. It is not drying at all, and will not emphasise lines or pores. In fact, pores are minimised and lines and wrinkles look less visible.
The cream has SPF 15 which is excellent for sun protection all day. It calms the skin of surface redness and can be used day or night, and can be used as a replacement for foundation if you find it too drying or difficult to apply well. This cream is very forgiving and easy to apply. If you want a lighter look, simply apply a little less of the cream. Followed up with concealer and powder, you will have a lovely and naturally radiant complexion that looks lovely all day.
I recommend this cream to anyone who wants to look great all day without using a foundation. It is easy and so quick to apply, and covers redness, minimises pores, makes lines less visible, your complexion will look more even and luminous, and this cream is great even when you are working out, you will still look fabulous after your workout. It is a very well priced product and suits all complexions. This is such a lovely cream, I have recommended it to many friends who have also made it a permanent addition to their beauty routine.
This is a Superior multi-tasking product with great colour match. Initially I was put off the higher cost point than what I would normally spend however now that I have tried it, I can see why there is the price difference. It is a superior foundation.
The Light/Med shade matches my skin perfectly; evening out the tone with great coverage. It even illuminated my skin and I don't need to use a seperate concealer with this product. I love it!
