Makeup Review, Swatches: Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream - Sheer Color, Hydrates For 24-hrs

I’ve been hearing so much hype about the new BB creams, so I was eager to try the New Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream ($12.99). Olay claims that it will eliminate “blotches and imperfections,” and that it contains five skin-perfecting benefits, plus a SPF 15.  They also say that the cream “hydrates for up to 24-hours with a splash of sheer color.”

I used this product a few times and thought it more than lived up to its claims. The cream creates and excellent base for any product you want to add over it (i.e.: foundation, blush, bronzer, powder) — and it is indeed hydrating.

It did a great job on its own too; the coverage is good enough so that you can skip the foundation and go straight to the blush/bronzer step of your routine. And at $12.99, it is very well-priced and delivers a lot of bang for your buck. My sole gripe is about the SPF, which is only 15. I prefer an SPF of at least 30. I hope Olay will consider reformulating this excellent product and upping the SPF.

    Sounds very interesting would love to see if this BB cream would give good coverage as I’ve combo skin which at times seems to be a problem finding the right one other ones I’ve tried seemed too oily for my skin.

    BB is a great product, I was just expecting another foundation that did not deliver, I was pleasantly surprised, my skin looks and feels great

    I had heard a lot of hype about BB creams and wanted to try but I have rosacea and prefer full coverage. I saw the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream at my local grocery store on manager’s clearance for $3.99 (hello, must buy). I was skeptical because of my problem skin but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved this BB cream. Super easy to apply, great scent. decent coverage and did not irritate my skin (actually my skin loved it). And it gave me a nice “glow”. Definitely not full coverage but perfect for wearing to work or day o day errand running when you do not really want to put on a full face; which I like cause when I use my full coverage foundation I look fake/weird if I do not add blush, mascara, etc. With this product I can even out the rosacea blotchiness without looking done up.
