Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream in Medium - Review, Swatch

The latest entry in the ever expanding BB cream market is Oriflame's Skin Dream BB Cream, a 5-in-1 beauty balm that :
  • Covers imperfections
  • Give all day hydration
  • Is oil-free
  • Has SPF 30
  • And gives an instant glow

I was sent the Skin Dream BB cream in the shade medium (they have light as well) and I have been really enjoying using it during the day. The cream is contained within a small tube of 30 ml and because of its size, I can take it along with me anywhere in my bag or clutch. The packaging is simple yet chic and I like it. 

Light would have been horrendous on me but Medium on my NC43 skin tone is a good match. When I apply it first, it does look kinda grey but after blending well, the color matches my skin tone perfectly. The texture of the product is slightly thick and it does not spread evenly on the face so you do need to make an effort in blending well. What I like about the BB cream is that it gives pretty decent coverage. Don't expect it to work like a foundation or a concealer so it does not really hide all blemishes and imperfections. But if you are looking for a product that gives medium coverage and is light on the skin, this is great. Also, the cream is oil-free so there is no shiny film on top of the skin.

I never wear foundation to work because I don't want to look too made up in office so BB creams have always been my preference. This one currently is my favorite because when I wear this it does not look as if I've worn makeup yet it gives me decent coverage and lasts for quite sometime, about 4-5 hours. Another area where Oriflame's Skin Dream BB cream scores for me is in the moisturising department. For a dry skin gal who is always looking out for products that hydrates without making the skin look greasy, this one is definitely a dream. And it also has SPF!

The cream also claims to give an instant glow which honestly I've not seen but I definitely agree to the other claims of the product being oil-free, moisturising and giving medium coverage. Perfect when you want something on the skin yet want it to look natural. The price at Rs 599 for 30 ml is definitely expensive but Oriflame keeps having these offers every month so do check out if this is available at a lower price.
