Influenster Review: Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

BB Cream

A few weeks ago I qualified for Influenster’s Sunkissed VoxBox and I was pretty excited!  It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten a box from them, the last one giving me an awesome concealer that I wouldn’t have found otherwise.  For the next few weeks I’ll be reviewing each item from the box so make sure you’re following me on Bloglovin’ so you don’t miss them!

The first item up is the one I was the most excited about – Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream.  I’m soo late to the BB Cream train and I finally had the opportunity to try it out.  This tinted moisturizer and sunscreen cream promises to refresh, brighten, even skin tone, smooth, and protect your skin.   I love tinted moisturizers for the summer and with my hectic schedule, I need products that can pull multiple shifts.  The cream comes in two shades – Fair to Light and Light to Medium. It’s also oil free, which is another plus for my combination skin.

The cream itself is nice and creamy, not too thick and not to heavy for my skin.  My face felt very moisturized and stayed that way most of the day.  My skin also felt smooth and refreshed.  However, my biggest complaint was the color.  I received the Light to Medium shade and it was way too light for me.  It gave my face an ashy color I didn’t like so unfortunately I couldn’t get the benefit of the brightening and evening of skin tone the cream promises.  I wished they carried a darker shade because if they did,  I would be all over this BB cream.

So I guess it back to the BB Cream drawing board for me.
