Review: Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream for Oily Skin

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream for Oily Skin

For someone who suffers from dry skin the thought of trying out a product designed to help clear up oily, blemish proned skin is just simply ridiculous.  When the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream for Oily Skin* crossed my desk I really had no intention of trying it out.  I had already tried the Maybelline BB Cream for Normal skin and I wasn't that impressed with it.  It didn't give me much coverage and it didn't last very long on my skin before fading away into nothing.  

Swatch of Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream for Oily Skin in Light

After swatching this product on the back of my hand I was immediately impressed by the colour.  It looked like the perfect match for my skin and the texture of it seemed quiet lovely.  Intrigued, I tried it out for a day.  As I thought the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream for Oily Skin in Light is a perfect match for my skin.  It's a lovely neutral colour that blends in really well.  In my opinion this BB Cream has a light to medium coverage (definitely more coverage than the original Maybelline BB Cream for normal skin) and can be easily finished off with a layer of powder to increase the coverage.  It covered up the redness in my cheeks quite easily and evened out my skintone perfectly.  When worn on it's own I find it lasts a good 6 hours before starting to fade and with powder over the top I can get through a full day without any fading.

Overall very impressed with this product and with the added bonus of SPF15 I'll be using this as my go-to BB cream for Summer.

Moral of the story: Don't judge a book by it's cover

  1. Where can we find this?? I have oily skin so I really didn't want to try the other maybelline one! And I've seen reviews for this but not in America!

    1. It's available pretty much everywhere in Australia - maybe it hasn't been released in America yet

  2. Looks great! Can't wait to see this in my local drugstore.

  3. Finally a BB cream which might actually suit me. My skin isn't dry, more combo, and my skin tone is probably similar to yours so I'll be looking out for this one. Thanks for sharing :D

  4. Great to see that this BB cream works well on all kinds of skin types even though its formulated for oil skin! It also has a great lasting power, I find that most BB creams fade, even with powder.
