Makeup: Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

So I mentioned in this month’s goal post that I wanted to learn how to wear makeup. I never wore makeup daily before, mostly because I am too lazy. But now I’ve decided that I really want to look like a grown up and wearing make up is part of that process! I obviously need to adopt a routine that is quick, natural looking, and effective. I’m starting with the basics here – and when I got Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream in my most recent Influenster Vox Box, I decided to use it as a base and foundation for my makeup.


This cream is an all-in-one skin-perfecting formula that provides the following benefits:

  • Refreshes skin instantly
  • Brightens for a radiant glow
  • Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
  • Hydrates for 24 hours
  • Smoothes for softer feeling skin
  • Protects against UV damage with SPF 15

“BB Cream, also known as beauty balm, is one of Asia's hottest beauty sensations. Its multi-tasking formula works to moisturize, brighten and help protect skin from harmful UV rays. This silky, tinted lotion blends effortlessly with your natural skin tone, helping hide imperfections and minimizing the need for concealer and foundation. With just one use, skin will be left glowing and naturally even.”


This picture shows me before I put on the cream, as well as after. To be honest, there is not much of a noticeable difference, likely because the tinting in the product is very light. This is ok with me, because I don’t want my face to become too tan or unnatural looking when I apply the cream. I then have the option of following up with a bronzer and / or blush.

I really like the feel of this cream. It is not heavy at all and is easy to apply smoothly. I also like that it has UV protection built in. I am happy to use this cream as the base level to my new makeup routine.

I think I want to try this product...I usually use Aveeno for my daily moisturizer but this looks like a good choice too. I like anything with SPF and that will even out my skin tone!

This looks awesome. I just got a Colgate Mouthwash from Influenster that I have to try out, but seriously would have loved BB Cream!!

I got this from influnster too! I wasn't too impressed with the coverage, but it is good for days that I want that "no-makeup" makeup look!

Looks great! I am a minimilast when it comes to makeup!

I don't like to wear foundation unless we're doing photos or something like that, so I just wear a moisturizer/sunscreen on a daily basis. I got this BB cream too, and I like it because it doesn't make my skin look flawless and fake the way foundation does. (I think makeup helps you look good in pictures--helps your eyes not disappear, for someone like me, helps me not look like a ghost due to the flash, but I don't like wearing makeup in real life very much. I don't feel like me!)

I use a BB cream on days that I don't want to wear makeup. I think that the beauty of the BB cream is they are light and just even out skin tone. On days I wear full makeup I still like it to look natural so I wear Bare Naturals mineral foundation.
