Product Description...
It is a multitasking tinted cream formula with SPF 35. It is formulated with emollients and optical pearls pigments to provide hydration and reduce fine lines and wrinkles after 4 weeks. It is a 5-in-1 formula for flawless skin. It claims to prime,perfect,hydrate and remove excess oil.


My Thoughts...
First thing I have noticed was that it has really good coverage compared to others I have used. It blends well and you can build full coverage. I have combination skin in summer but dry skin in winter...weird...coming back to my skin type...oily T-zone,large pores around my nose and forehead and dry patches here and there. As I told you...i was really excited for this BB cream BUT this thing made my skin greasy and yellow-brownish in color. No matter what I applied it with (fingers,sponge,flat brush)the outcome was same. At first application it looks great but later on it oxidized and made my face blotchy and super greasy. The thing I like most is it fixed my flakey,dry and patchy skin...my skin is very dry in winters and my makeup literally flake off.
It guarantees to reduce fine lines in 4 weeks, I can not comment on this.
