Unfortunately a miss
Normally I love nude by nature products but unfortunately, this was a miss for me. I have tried every way possible to apply this and still get a very patchy, uneven and even clumpy result, despite the very sheer coverage. The colour range is also not flash, and I find most shades I've tried lean very orange/red.
Such a disappointment - virtually no coverage and it made my skin look downright oily or greasy instead of healthy or glowy. I usually love NBN products and had high hopes for this BB cream, but it missed the mark. Low fragrance is good, but I'm sure that this actually made my skin look worse instead of a better version of itself.
I seem to have been searching for a BB cream forEVER. I used to have a good BB cream that was discontinued, so I'm still searching for a replacement. I have tried a number of usually low-cost brands (because I use this for casual, no-makeup days) and there is always an issue with the colour range, or the consistency, or the suitability for my dry skin - BB creams that settle in my pores are a no-no! I had received a Nude By Nature sample in The Parcel (alas, sorely missed) but it was too dark for my fair skin so I passed it on.
Fast forward to the recent past and I decided to give NBN BB cream another go in my correct shade, and it was on sale so the timing was right. My trials of this product have certainly been a mixed bag. The first time I used it I found it was the right shade for me – Soft Sand – and gave a very light coverage, which is fine and what I expect in a BB cream. It was slightly oily – again this was fine as my skin is dry. I didn’t find that it was very buildable and it seemed to end up on my hands, but still the coverage seemed ok and didn’t settle in my pores. So far, so good.
The second time I tried was a disaster. I had waited a while after moisturising, for some reason, and found it impossible to blend in! The more I tried, the more it formed little balls that dropped into my hair, or down my front. And nothing seemed to help – even a beauty blender, my usual beauty rescue device. In the end I tried to gently brush the dry BB cream of my face (and everywhere else). There was not much cover but at least no more mess.
Since that time I only apply directly after moisturising,with a brush to minimise contact. As mentioned before, it is not very buildable or easy to blend and my advice would be to blend in quickly and then “step away from the BB cream” as it dries very quickly. I have tried mixing with a little moisturiser and that has made it easier to work with.
I was actually rather surprised at this outcome. I don’t think the original sample I tried had this issue, so perhaps this is a problem with the new formula. I’m always happy to use Nude By Nature products on my skin – I know they contain natural,cruelty-free ingredients, and are an Australian brand. I like also that they have included at least a small amount of sun protection – only SPF 8 unfortunately – but really I had to work too hard to make this product work for me, so unfortunately I wouldn’t repurchase after this.
As winter is approaching I wanted to try a lightweight and hydrating foundation so I bought this Sheer Glow BB Cream to try. I have used this BB cream for two weeks now and I'm in love with it. This BB cream feels lightweight on skin with light coverage and it have a satin finish which is perfect for my everyday work look. The formula is very hydrating and doesn't dry out my skin. I have been wearing it everyday to work.
I love BB creams however felt that this one is a little too light. Its extremely light weight, but does not last. I realise it is a sheer product but for me, a little too sheer and the first time I have felt let down by Nude by Nature> the colour seemed like it was going to be ok but perhaps just did not suit my skin. It did leave my skin feeling moisturised but I would not purchase again.
Generally, I am a big fan off BB creams as I often just want quick light-medium coverage with added skincare benefits. Luckily this one has good skincare benefits and contains some great plant-based oils, antioxidants and a small amount of mineral SPF protection. Some other positives are that it doesn't contain silicone, the product comes in a pretty luxe looking tube and there is are five shades to choose from. The shade that matches my skin the best is 02 Soft Shade, which is a light to medium shade. However the coverage and consistency of this BB cream is just too sheer and luminous for my skin. I have combination, slightly sensitive skin and although this BB cream doesn't irritate my skin, it does feel quite greasy. I therefore find it a bit difficult to blend and it doesn't really stay on my skin. I don't feel like this particular BB cream provides enough coverage for my skin and the finish is a bit too dewy for me. I would therefore recommend this product for drier skin types, who just want more of a sheer glow rather than coverage.
Keeps skin moist and gives a healthy glow. Perfect coverage if you want to look natural and dewy, but wouldn't recommend it for oily skin, problem skin or if you are after more coverage. Love the smell. Good price but minus for not lasting very long - so instead of buying one bottle you may end up buying two in the same time.
I love a good BB cream as a lighter alternative to foundation and this nude by nature BB cream is one of the best I tried. I love these products, all natural and great value. This BB cream feels light to wear, it gives a nice coverage of sheer colour and lasts all day with no oiliness. I have sensitive skin and find this cream never irritates and always looks amazing. It comes in five shades which is great as its easy to find a perfect match and its easy to apply, I dont need to use a lot and simply blend it with my fingers. This product makes my skin look quite luminous and healthy and also minimises the appearance of pores, I often just add a little blusher and Im done, so quick and easy. The packaging is modern and classy. I really loved this and would absolutely recommend it.
I usually love Nude by Nature products however this one did not work for me! It is very sheer and it's almost like you are not wearing anything. Having oily skin it was a little greasy for me even after I used some powder. I like that it had spf in it however it is very low. I had their old bb cream and the old formula was great! Wish they would bring it back
After using a high end BB cream I decided to try a more affordable BB. The packaging is stylish and it looks high end.
It's in an easy to dispense tube, with 30ml of product. I choose the shade 02 in soft sand, the tester in store felt light and airy on my hand.
The product does feel nice on the skin, with little to no smell. It does give a nice glow BUT unlike other BB it just doesn't give the coverage I am used too. I had to use quite a bit of product and although it sinks into my skin giving a nice glow it doesn't cover any blemishes. Coming back to the mirror an hour later it looks like it had all disappeared. It does feel light and airy and is easy to blend.
I understand the nude by nature is a 'sheer' glow product but it's a little too sheer as a BB cream.
I have been using the product mixed with my foundation and it does give a nice glow without being too shiny. This is a good alternative and gives better coverage.
Unfortunately I won't repurchase this BB but I am keen to try the new Nude by Nature foundation.
I actually purchased this recently in #2 Soft Sand and have used this BB cream for the past 3 years prior to the reformulation and re-packaging so I have the benefit of being able to compare the two. I'm sorry to say that it fails to impress. I am in two minds about this. First of all, with both the old and new formulations I found the Light/Porcelain (#1 in new formulation) was too light and Medium/Soft Sand gives a too pink tinge on my skin.
Good things: I love the slick new packaging, which is certainly an improvement from the previous one, and the formulation is actually an improvement too - the old one was more chalky on me so I do actually prefer this one as it does give a nice, velvety glow and looks more natural on my skin. HOWEVER, and this is the negative for me, with the new revamp they've kept the price the same (or possibly increased it by $5 from memory) but have reduced the size by 20ml - from 50ml to 30ml. So that's a whopping 40% reduction in product! Not happy and I have already bought another brand and will not be purchasing this Nude by Nature BB cream again.
I once tried Nude by Natures Sheer Glow BB Cream. I am fair - medium skin tone and I use Nude Beige #3. It is light and airy, perfect for when I have 'days off' I use both of Nude by Nature's BB Cream and Powder Foundation because they are very light products that allow your skin to breathe. You only require a small amount as a little goes a long way. It spreads beautifully and evenly and adds a lovely, summery natural glow. It gives a luminous finish so if matte is your preferred choice I wouldn't recommend it. The dewy finish can also exacerbate oily skin. Comes in a flat style tube with a rose gold screw cap that sits nicely in the cupboard or on the shelf. Also a good size to throw in your handbag or small make up bag making it ideal for travelling. I love the fragrance and it dries quickly. I also loved that it was Aussie made. Overall its not a bad product but compared to other BB creams Ive tried better. If I can purchase on a sale at a good price I would use it again, however it is not a product I would buy on a regular basis.
I received this in the Marie Claire box and absolutely loved it. It is nice and sheer, I don't need a heavy foundation. The sample colour was perfect and of course influenced my love of this product. I will definitely be buying it when it runs out, which may be a while because a little goes a long way.
Goes on nicely, gives good coverage. I have developed an allergy to it , so recommend testing it before you buy.

I’m in two minds about this BB cream. It certainly does live up to it’s name – it is very sheer, but perhaps too sheer?
I have light/medium skin, and the shade ‘Nude Sand’ is a great match for me. I use this cream when I don’t need a full face of makeup as it provides very light coverage which isn’t buildable, however, it is a nice base to use under powder foundation products. The formula is lightweight and non-greasy, but still somewhat moisturising. It has an SPF of 8, which isn’t ideal and I would have preferred at least SPF 15, but it is better than nothing.
Nude By Nature products are Australian owned, uses natural ingredients and is cruelty free. They have also recently changed their packaging, and I do like that this product is in a squeeze tube and has rose gold accents. Oh and a fun fact: this product is made in Canada.
I would only recommend this product to those who want natural, cruelty free skincare,and only want a very light coverage or a slight hint of colour, otherwise Ithink you would be disappointed.
I recieved a sample of this in the Marie Clare parcel and I absolutely adored it!
It does exactly what the name of it says it does. It gives you a sheer glow. Its light coverage, moisturises the skin and gives it such a beautiful glow. Perfect for those no makeup makeup days. I use it like a foundation. Just one layer of this buffed into my skin followed by concealer and a setting powder and im good to go! It evens out my skin tone and gives it a radiant glow. I recommend anyone who doesn't like a heavy foundation to give this a go! Its so lightweight you wont even feelmlike you're wearing it!
I received this as a sample in my Summer parcel and as a loyal nude by nature fan I was bitterly disappointed. The liquid BB cream felt great on my fingertips but looked awful on my skin. The coverage is very sheer which is fine if that's what you're after but it is not buildable at all and it made my skin instantly greasy and shiny after application. I didn't have time to take it off so had to apply a setting powder quickly before I stepped out. Personally I would never purchase this product as it didn't feel or look good on my skin at all. This product may be better suited to dry/normal skin that is already flawless but wanting a tinted moisturiser look.
Oh, how I love a product that lives up to its name! The Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB cream describes itself in one title.
I received this little beauty in the most recent Marie Claire parcel, and had to try it right away. Although I have heard a lot about the brand, I hadn't tried many of their products, but after this I am sure that will change.
The Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB cream is a very light cream, almost lotion like in consistency and is available to purchase in 5 shades- the shade I received was 03 Nude Beige. Only a small amount is required as it is so easy to spread evenly and it goes a long way. This product feels lovely on, it moisturises the skin beautifully without any greasy feel immediately after application, or at all throughout all day wear, even with combination/oily skin types.
Results? The Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB cream, as I mentioned earlier is very appropriately named. The BB cream gives a luminous, yet natural looking glow to your complexion and helps to diffuse the appearance of uneven skin tone. However, if it is coverage you are after, whether it be to conceal scarring, or breakouts, this product just will not do the job. What this BB cream does best is to enhance what you already have, so if you are experiencing a good skin week like me, this cream sure helps to celebrate that!
In a snapshot;
Pros- Moisturises the skin beautifully and leaves no greasy feel.
- Complexion appears naturally luminous and skin tone becomes more even.
- A little goes a long way and is very easy to apply.
- Available in 5 shades- as this product is intentionally to give very sheer coverage I would be confident that all skin tones would find their match.
- Suitable for all skin types.
- Reasonably priced.
Cons- Coverage is very sheer, so it will not cover imperfections such as scarring, or breakouts.
Tips? Although this product is very sheer I was very easily able to seamlessly apply concealer over the top, followed by the application of a loose powder to completely conceal a couple of trouble spots. The Nude by Nature Sheer Glow BB cream is versatile enough to be used with any other makeup products to achieve whatever results are desired.
Perfect day to day BB cream if you don't need full coverage. New to the range and I have found it best to wear during the warmer weather as it doesn't feel greasy or make my skin oily which a lot of tinted cream does. Very light weight and anti-aging (just what I need!) I've been using colour Nude Beige but will probably go a little darker as the summer approaches and my skin becomes warmer. Another great product from Nude By Nature.
