Swatch + Review: Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

This BB cream claims to provide 24-hour hydration and a sheer splash of colour for a flawlessly radiant look. It`s suppose to blend effortlessly with your natural skin tone to help hide imperfections and minimize the need for a concealer and foundation. The 5 skin perfecting benefits to this BB cream: refreshes, brightens, evens tone, hydrates, and smooths.

I`ve used Korean brand BB creams a few years ago but I`ve noticed the colours were a little light. Anyways, this is my first Western brand BB cream. With all the Western brands launching their own BB creams these days, I wanted to try one for a while but I`ve noticed from store testers that they all have a pink undertone. When I saw this in store I thought I found one with more yellow undertones so I thought I`d try this. Unfortunately the swatch on the box is different from the one on the tube and the colour of the product. Looking at the photos you can see the difference between the swatch on the product and packaging. It`s misleading. As for the product itself it hydrates, evens out skintone, and gives my skin a radiant look, even with my combination skin. Just to test this further I applied foundation and a setting powder on top and it didn`t make my face look cakey. I couldn`t tell if this really hydrates my skin for 24 hours because I wash my makeup off immediately and followup with my skincare routine which includes moisturizing. It`s very sheer and not buildable. I think this is suitable for someone who doesn`t require much coverage. Overall, this is a good BB cream but I will only repurchase if there`s one that`s a better match.
