Maybelline dream fresh BB review

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB!!!

Ok so I'm not behind on this product. I have actually been using this product a fair amount. I didn't think I needed to do this review until I noticed how much of this product I had been using. This has quickly become an all time favorite and something I find myself reaching for day after day. 
       The formula of this product is so light weight and easily smoothes out your face and very easy to apply. As a new mom I needed something to put on my face so that I would feel better about myself and could face all the visitors coming to see the baby with a face that I was not embarrassed to show people!

The packaging is wonderful. I small sleek plastic bottle. You can throw this in your purse easily. Makeup bag, it doesn't take up too much space. You get 1.0 FL OZ of this product. The color selection is kind of a general guess but the product sheers out so beautifully that as long as you are within the ball park of your skin tone then you will be fine.  There are 5 tones that this product comes in.

The product claims to do the following:
An 8-in-1 skin perfector
-blurs imperfections
-evens skin tone
-protects with SPF 30
-0% oils and heavy ingredients

So I can agree to some of the above.  I would say that it evens skin tone, but you will for sure need a concealer if you have blemishes.  It does hydrate your skin and leaves a very pretty glow to your skin. I would not say that you are dewy by any means but you do have some glow to the skin.  I think that the SPF in this product is a definite benefit.  This is great for the summer because it's such a light product and you can wear it outdoors and be protected from the sun.
Now I have very very sensitive skin and I can say this did NOT make me breakout. It's one of the main reasons I really love this product.  
Will I repurchase this product??? ABSOLUTELY!!

To give you an idea of products that I have tried and how my face reacts to it: Clinique even better foundations is very greasy on my skin and I look extremely shiney.  Neutragena healthy glow is one of my favorites and looks beautiful on my skin.  Nars sheer glow is a perfect foundation for me and I even used it for my wedding day!  Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer really did nothing for my face so I had to give it away.  Make up forever matte velvet works beautifully on me.  So there is an idea if those work for you this product will as well!

Overall, a wonderful product. For the price and what the product does definitely worth it!!
