Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream Review
I think I am the epitome of the saying “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone”. I tend to write my reviews on products mainly when I’m reaching the end of them. Which is exactly the case here. I don’t know how long I’ve had + loved the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, and I’ve given love to it on my Instagram, but I’ve never thought to fully review it. Until now. When I’m basically on the last use. Well, another saying is – better late than never right? So let’s get to it.
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream – Packaging
The packaging is simple and perfect for this kind of product. It’s a standard squeezable plastic tube. It’s mega lightweight which is so perfect for traveling. It’s not luxurious by any means, but it’s not bad at all. Full points here, no complaints.

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream – Shade Range
As you probably saw coming, the shade range here SUCKS. There are ONLY 3 shades. I mean I can understand that a drugstore brand that may be smaller and is just starting out may not have the resources for a full range. But this is Maybelline we’re talking about for godsakes. They can definitely pull off having a full shade range. And I don’t believe the fact at all that since it’s a BB cream and is a lighter coverage type product, a good shade selection is not as important. NO. That’s a cop out. You may not need 40 shades in a BB cream, but you certainly need more than 3. I really don’t know when brands are going to get it through their thick heads. And who are the dimwits who do the marketing for these people anyway?
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream – Performance
In so many words, this is the best BB cream ever. I can’t quite put into words why I love this so much. It just looks so good on the skin. For a BB cream, this provides such a good medium style coverage. It hides a lot of the brown spots on my skin that are usually left over from breakouts. It doesn’t sink into a single line or pore or make anything look bad at all. With my dry skin, this is such an amazing base product. I have absolutely no idea how this would look or work for oily skin types, so please know this review is very much coming from one skin type’s perspective.
This 8-in-1 BB Cream instantly beautifies skin. Dream Fresh BB® Cream. Daily 8-in-1 BB skin perfector brightens, smoothes, hydrates, and protects with broad-spectrum SPF 30. Gives skin a dewy finish. This BB skin perfector adjusts to skin tone, blurs imperfections, and protects with broad-spectrum SPF 30
This product performs exactly as Maybelline describes. It really does mold and shape itself into your skin, and the shade kind of self adjusts to match your skin tone (that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be more shades). It really does hydrate and smooth. I don’t know that it really brightens anything – it brightens like any base product would, but it doesn’t brighten the skin like a skincare product would. It does give a gorgeous dewy finish. And of course, the added SPF protection is a fantastic bonus.
If you’ve got a first date, a meeting with the parents, a dinner with the bosses, an interview, a presentation, every day work – this foundation is perfect for those occasions. Anywhere you want to be super confident that you look perfected but in the most natural way possible. You don’t have to worry about looking overly made up. I know that every time I wear anything heavier in terms of makeup, I can get self conscious in professional settings. So I’ve now perfected my look with this BB cream in any of those kinds of situations. This is absolutely 100% buildable. I usually tend to go in a second time on the marks on my cheeks to cover up a bit of the redness. It is a very runny liquid consistency so it is superbly easy to blend out. And you can use a sponge or a brush, it’ll look good either way. I personally always use a sponge with this.
This honestly does everything a BB cream is supposed to and I know that there’s really no way to top this product. It’s affordable and frankly, almost perfect. There might be dupes out there, but probably ones that are more expensive. So if you’re looking for a great affordable BB cream, here it is. Look no further. Have you guys tried this? If not, pleaseee do. And if you have, let me know what you think of it.
Have a fantastic week my loves xx
