Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream

So as I said in my last post, I requested for this sample to be sent to me (Through a facebook competition) and I've tried it out and compared it to my Piera's BB Cream.

So the Maybelline Website says that this BB Cream has 8 benefits:

- 2% salicylic acid + vitamins
- Conceals imperfections
- Reduces blemishes
- Calms redness
- Oil free, non-greasy
- Minimises pores
- Adjusts to skin tone
- SPF 15

It also says that it's for oily-combination skin. My skin is more to the dry side, but it was still a good product to try out. 

I'm not sure that it adjusted to my skin tone. I was sent "Medium-Light" Though, I did find that confusing because the colour was mentioned twice on the packet. Once was "Medium Light" and the second time "Medium". So I wasn't exactly sure what colour I was sent. Regardless, I thought I'd just see what it looked like on. 

It was perhaps a bit light for my face, but I was hoping it would adjust to my skin tone like it states. I checked the mirror in about 20 minutes (in my bathroom - where it was lit with natural sunlight), and it was still quite off. So I continued with my makeup routine (and wore relatively less, as I wanted to see how this would go).

It has a dewy finish and it did reduce the appearance of some pimples I have dying down, though of course, some more concealer is needed. This. I expected for a BB cream though.

About 4 hours later, I checked again and the colour did look much better. Although the SPF was probably wearing off soon and it was time for reapplication.

So.. I'm not too sure about whether I'll purchase this after sampling it. I do have a couple more packets to try. But I thought I would review it because I do like it, but I don't love it. It does a decent job - but perhaps with all the promotion I had my hopes up too high. I don't think the fact that I had dry skin affected it either, however, it might work better if you do have combination-oily skin. As this is what the product is targeted at.

I would say it would probably work better if you are have a lighter skin toned. I would probably classify myself as a light-medium skin tone. But perhaps I would be a more "medium" if I was to purchase this than a "light". I'm still confused to what colour I was sent.. haha.

If you've tried this, let me know your thoughts! Comments are always really appreciated :)
