Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8 in 1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector

I’m going to start this review off with just saying… THIS IS NOT A BEAUTY BALM, IT’S A TINTED MOISTURIZER.

With that being said, let us review!

This product has 8 claims:

  1. Blurs imperfections
  2. Enhances
  3. Brightens
  4. Adjusts to skin tone
  5. Smooths
  6. Hydrates
  7. SPF 30
  8. 0% oils
What this product actually does:
  1. Gives a tint to the skin, very, very slight tint.
  2. Makes my skin look extremely oily, don’t know why.
  3. Hydrates
  4. What is it supposed to enhance again?
  5. Teensy bit of brightening… Not much though.
  6. Minimal perfections are blurred, since this doesn’t cover much.
  7. Has spf 30 :)
  8. Adjusts to skin tone? Not really… May look like it since it’s so flipping sheer.

This formula is so liquid-y that when laying on it’s side, the product actually just seeps out of the opening. The product is extremely sheer, but when used with a brush the coverage comes out a bit more, rather than with fingers. As a tinted moisturizer, it has great moisturizing properties. I feel like my skin was hydrated throughout the whole day of wear, there was no flaking or dry patches at all. This is a great product if you want to even out your skin tone when you have minor imperfections.

Comes with one ounce of product. It retails for about $8USD. Smells like sunscreen.

It’s an okay product in a whole and great for people who want a light coverage. It does feel really nice on the skin but the finish is wet looking, resulting in an oily look. I had to set with a powder to get rid of the wet finish!


  • Light texture
  • Hydrating
  • SPF 30
  • Good for people who just want a natural look who don’t really have any imperfections (put powder on top though!)


  • Not much product
  • Smells like sunscreen
  • Looks oily
  • Too sheer if applied with fingers
