BEAUTY DEBUNKED: Maybelline Dream Fresh 8 in 1 BB Cream

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream.Opens in a new window

CLAIM: Creates a natural glow
TRUTH: The semi-dewy, satin finish makes skin appear wet and glowy.

CLAIM: Compliments skin tone
TRUTH: The neutral color selection does not oxidize or turn muddy/orange after application.

CLAIM: SPF 30 UV protection
TRUTH: Claims on the packaging to contain SPF 30, yet it only has 1.15 % Titanium Dioxide on the ingredients list. Most other 1 oz. foundations/BB creams have 5% or more Titanium Dioxide and claim to be only SPF 15 or 20.
CLAIM: Hydrates all day
TRUTH: The thin, runny consistency makes skin appear damp and feel cooled and soothed.

CLAIM: Blurs imperfections
TRUTH: Very subtle color payoff. No concealing or covering of any blemishes or imperfections.

CLAIM: Oil free, non greasy
TRUTH: Remains dewy throughout the entire day, with no slow shift to a greasy mess. No clogged and congested pores either.

CLAIM: Looks visibly smooth
TRUTH: Creates a slick, slippery base that performs and feels exactly like a foundation primer.

CLAIM: Feels fresh

TRUTH: The watery texture feels cool and refreshing on the skin. The coverage is very lightwieght and sheer, with no mask-like, sticky, or thick feeling.

Which of these claims did you find wrong?
