Dream Fresh BB Review

For several years now my grandmother has subscribed to Seventeen magazine for my sister & I to enjoy. I rarely notice the cosmetic samples but for whatever reason, this New Dream Fresh BB cream by Maybelline caught me eye in the latest issue. I took it out of the magazine and put it on my bathroom counter. Tuesday morning I used it for the first time. WOW! I love the softness it adds to my skin. It made my skin look like a baby's, no joke. I used it as a "base" then applied a little blush (Mary Kay) then powder (Mary Kay) over the cream and blush. Side note: for whatever reason, I like the look of powder over blush... I think blush over powder is a more dramatic look than I would like.. anyways, cream.. love it!

This picture does not do a justice, but it does show the clearness of my face after the cream had been applied for around 12 hours!

The shade I received was Light/Medium Sheer Tint... and it was perfect. It gave just enough coverage to even my skin tone, without looking like I had "caked" foundation on. This cream is available in 5 skin tones. 

When I applied the BB cream I just squirted pea size amounts into my palm, then blended it onto my face one "section" at a time- left cheek, right cheek, nose, chin, forehead/ temples, using my fingers.

BB creams combine skincare + makeup in 1 simple step 8-in-1 Skin Perfector because it blurs imperfections, brightens & evens skin tone, smoothes, hydrates, & enhances, as well as protecting your skin with SPF 30. BB cream has 0% oils and heavy ingredients. 

Have you ever tried this product? Or a similar one from a different manufacture? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


  1. I got the same magazine the other day and took the sample out to! I'm going to try it tomorrow.

    1. Let me know how you like it! I'm totally diggin' it! :)

  2. I recieved the same in my magazine. I, on the other hand did not like it. It felt too heavy on my skin and made my skin look oily. I will however give it the credit for not clogging my pores and for making my skin silky soft.

    1. Thank you for your feedback! I too agree that it did not clog my pores!


Feel free to comment with any type of feedback- I'd love to hear from you!
