My Verdict:

About packaging, it comes in a very pretty convenient pump that disperses just enough product and is easily controlled. I really like the packaging but the first time you use it, it might take a few pumps for the product to come out.

I got this in the shade NUDE.The consistency of this BB cream is little thick. Always use a moisturizer prior to this for blending easily. I use my Real techniques miracle sponge to apply. The product is nicely pigmented so you will notice some coverage. In my case, it does tone down the discoloration.Β The downside of this product is that it can wear off during the day. I managed to control that by setting the BB cream with setting powder but it last long. Also, since the product is too thick. I like to mix with little of my face serum.(because I have dry skin). This gives me a dewy look.

This BB cream is so heavily fragranced. It smells like a sunscreen with a floral hint of fragrance and the fragrance stays for quite some time.

Not to mention that although the SPF 20 is awesome but if you spend time in the sun you should be wearing another sunscreen under your makeup anyway. Also, the heavy fragrance can be sensitive for certain skin types.

I Love ELF but sadly this is not a product that I’d want to repurchase.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Packaging is really good
  • Travel friendly

Cons:

  • Heavy fragrance
  • Cannot blend easily with just the product
  • Thick consistency
  • Not hydrating

Price: $6

Rating: 3.5/5
