When it comes to BB creams I am very picky, I don't like to wear foundation on a daily basis, but I somedays I really need some color on my face. So for me a BB cream needs to fill a few requirements: It needs to be light on the skin, not greasy, it needs to set properly and it shouldn't be too orange. And when we are talking about drugstore BB creams, these requirements are easily not met.
I've tried a lot of different ones, and I think this Nivea one is pretty good.
The first thing that I have to point out is that this product comes in a closed box, wrapped with plastic, which is not normal at all for drugstore stuff. I like that. I love the simplicity of the tube and the packaging.
I chose the medium ton, which is OK for me. It's not a perfect match, but I can work with that. It oxidizes a little bit on the face, but not too much. It smells really good -- well, it has that typical Nivea smell that it is impossible not to love. It applies very smoothly, both with hands and with a Beauty Blender, however when I tried to apply it with a brush, it was a little bit stricky. It is definitely a very light coverage, but it really evens out the skin tone.
But how does it feel on the skin, during the day? Well, it's fair enough. I'm not saying that it's like you are not wearing anything. But it's light. I don't mind it. But you need to be careful if you have any oily zones. It may look weird. I always powder my t-zone to try to avoid oiliness and creasing. If you layer it with a concealer you may be able to cover some zits or acne scars, but this is very light coverage.
