        I really like this stuff. It's probably one of the best that I have tried so far. I got medium but its a little too dark. I just add some moisturizer to tone it down and it's perfect. When I do buy this again I will make sure to get fair.
        It looks like it's your skin and not covered and caky. I will say that it makes me look a tad oil-slicked but compared to what I have been using before, this stuff is really one of the better or best BB creams out there.

            NOT CRAZY ABOUT THIS TINTED MOISTURIZER. I ALWAYS CHOOSE MEDIUM COLOR FOR TINTED MOISTURIZERS. WAAAY TO DARK AND DIDN'T GO ON AS SMOOTH AS OTHERS I HAVE TRIED. DO NOT THINK I WILL BUY IT AGAIN. JUST DIDN'T LIKE THE CONSISTENCY OR THE COLOR.

              Covers well and contains some titanium dioxide - a physical sunscreen which won't break down in the sun (so you have to reapply it every 2 hrs) like the chemical sunscreen in it. Is okay to wear alone but also can use as a primer under powder foundation.

              The problem is the "Medium" shade should have been labelled as tan or dark. Order a shade lighter than you think you need! I have to spread this all over my neck in order to avoid the dreaded "unmatched foundation line" at my jaw.

                  I was told recently by my aesthetician that my skin was in excellent condition and should consider using a BB tinted moisturizer instead of the usual foundation I used because I don't need the heavier coverage. I've heard lots of good things about BB cream and have always appreciated Loreal Youth Code line so I tried this one. I really like the look a lot and it goes on very easily and looks natural & dewy. The medium shade is a bit darker than I would expect, but I will be okay with that but not everyone will. The only other issue is one that I read about, and that's the smell. It's not a nice fragrance unfortunately and don't know what's driving it. To me, not overwhelming and I suspect I'll get used to it, but they should consider trying to fix it. I will be buying it again.

                      In my opinion the Light color was too dark for my skin tone. I garee they should affer more colors. Also, it goes on a bit heavy and shiny. I also didn't notice any skin improvement with this product. If you are looking for a good BB Cream I highly recommend the Loreal Studio Secrets Magic BB cream. It is wonderful, but I would recommend using along with a light moisturizer.

                      Slightly greasy - best for light coverage on those casual days.
                      This product should come in 3 colors:
                      light, medium and dark.
                      The 'medium' is actually too dark for my medium skin tone, while the 'light' is way too light.

                          It's just a tinted moisturizer and an overpriced one,too. I got a sample of this from a nice SA in the store, the medium color. While the color matches my skin, it turned greasy after a couple of hours. I will stick to my Maybelline BB cream, another tinted moisturizer, but cheaper and comes with more colors. If you have dry/normal skin this will work for you.
