The bestI really wanted to write this review because some of the negatives I've read on here are definitely not my experience with this product. I am 41 years old and I have combination skin leaning toward the oily side. I love make up and I have lots of it. I have tried tons of BB creams from Tarte down to Wet n Wild and I have to say that this is my go to for everyday. I used to use full coverage foundations and found that they make me look older so I made the switch to BB cream a few years ago thinking that less is more. I picked up this product one day while I was out because I was out of my face wash. (Another Burts Bee's product that I love) and I saw this and figured why not. I spread a thin layer over my face and neck then follow with some concealer with my beauty blender and that's it. The coverage is enough to even my skin tone and give me a beautiful glow. I don't love the smell of this....it's fruity at first and that's nice but then for a second it does smell like feet, that said it goes away quickly and it's not a deal breaker since I have gotten a ton of complements on my skin since purchasing this. I love not being covered in foundation and frankly this is the best BB cream that I have found next to Tarte tinted moisturizer but this product is awesome for about $15 less. I love it.

Okay....depending on your skin typeI purchased this product back in the fall and am just now getting to writing a review. I was very excited about the product, but it turned out to not be for me. I've seen others post negative comments about the scent; however, I do not think it is that strong or unpleasant. The scent is a mix of sunscreen and a fruity/herbal; in my opinion, it is not a bad smell, just a tad strong. I suffer form acne so I was seeking a natural product that wouldn't cause breakouts or irritate my sensitive skin. While my sensitive skin wasn't affected, I did notice an increase in breakouts when using the product. The product has a light coverage (i.e. did not fully cover acne scars). I would recommend this product for a person with dry to normal skin without acne.

Best make-up I've ever used!!!!Let me start this off by saying that I have used just about every type of make up there is. I just spent over $500 on a airbrush make-up system with makeup that I had hoped would deliver the results that I saw online. I have had troubled skin most of my adult life and have always went for heavy coverage. Now that I'm almost 40 and have finally gotten my skin somewhat under control, I've decided to buy make-up that isn't too heavy but covers well. After wearing the airbrush make-up and how time consuming it was to apply each time, my friend quickly swiped her face with some burts bees and I was blown away at her glow and how natural she looked. The next day I asked to use her make up and even though it doesn't cover heavily like the spray on, it has given me a youthful and natural glow that really feels great on my skin! I use a couple dabs of concealer where needed and I'm good to go. I've gotten so many compliments from people saying how naturally beautiful my skin is, assuming I'm not wearing make-up! All I can say is, Thank you Burts bees for the amazing make-up! I'd love to see a darker shade since now that I'm tan the medium is a bit light but it still highlights beautifully! If you have a ton of blemishes to cover than maybe this would be a good moisturizer/ primer for under make/up or wear to the pool. It's a great sunblock and looks great even after full day at pool!

Excellent light coverageI have mild acne rosacea and so I have to be so careful about what I use on my face as some products make things so much worse. I have been very happy with this BB Cream as a light base and it does not cause my condition to worsen. There is an odor to this that is unusual, but it doesn't bother me too much since the product works well and I don't react to it which is far more important to me. This product is only really going to give you light coverage. It's not heavy at all, almost more like a tinted moisturizer which is exactly what I like about it and the mineral sunscreen.
