Clinique Age Defense BB Cream ~ My quick review

Hello Girls…
                      Today I'm reviewing Clinique Age Defense BB Cream, which is a 100% allergy tested and fragrance free BB cream. People with dry skin can really benefit from BB Creams. My skin is so dry and flaky that my makeup will literally flake off(specially in winter),and BB cream is perfect for winter season. According to Clinique, this is an oil????

What shade is right for you? (taken from clinique website)

Very fair complexions with pink undertones, use Shade 01 
Very fair to moderately fair complexions with golden undertones, use Shade 02 
Moderately Fair to Medium with Golden Undertones, use Shade03

How I wear it…
                       This BB cream is really thick, so a small amount of product goes a long way. I apply it over cleansed and moisturized skin, dot a tiny amount on cheeks, forehead and chin and then blend it out with a kabuki brush. After that dust loose powder all over the face.

My opinion...
This was my first BB cream so I was really excited. Back to the cream, I bought this in shade 02 due to its recommendation for moderately fair skin with yellow/gold undertone,but despite its recommendation I felt that it made my face look grayish & chalky.  It is way too thick to use on its own. Sometimes I feels like I'm wearing a mask on my face. I recommend adding moisture for the cream to thin out the thickness.

Will I repurchase it...
No absolutely NOT
