LOVE the texture of this BB cream! Sits really well under make up and absorbs into skin so easily. The texture is light, but does help even out some redness. The rest is going to be up to your concealer though (which goes on well over this anyways). Out of the American market for BB cream, this is definitely my favorite product. I use this with Missha BB Boomer to help extend the wear of my BB cream and also add some InnisFree No Sebum (Translucent) Powder. Both are Korean products, but the CG Smoothers BB Cream holds it's weight! My while "natural men's" make up routine is Korean products (because Koreans are so damn good at the natural look!!!!!), but this BB cream finds its place easily among my products. I've tried BB creams from Maybelline, Revlon, and Garnier which, aside from the Revlon, don't come close to this BB. I'll sometimes switch it out for the Revlon PhotoReady BB just because they have similar consistencies, but the Revlon has more coverage. I reach for the CG Smoother when I'm looking for something light and casual though because it comes out looking more natural.

This tinted moisturizer is a fave of mine! I use it on a daily basis in the winter when I'm not in need of heavy coverage. Lightweight and perfectly paired with my skin tone, I keep 2 full tubes prepared just in case! This isn't for someone who requires heavy coverage, as it is more for a smoother complexion and skin protection. My ONLY con about the product, is that after about 6 hours of wear, my skin begins to get slightly oily and I normally don't have oily skin. This is only a small con for me, because I know that it is not a full foundation and the heat can begin to smooth it out. I pair it with ELF matte spray to hold off that oily ending, and find myself with moisturized and even skin! Definitely a personal favorite for myself, may not work for everyone but if you are looking for a lightweight, gentle and protective moisturizer, this is it!

My skin type: Oily I had a free sample of this that I probably yanked out of a magazine or something and I was shocked at how quickly I fell in love with it. I had to note my skin type first because this has been my biggest issue with BB creams. I have tried a slew of BB creams, even ones straight from Korea and Japan and had trouble with what I like to call "Disco-Ball Face" at the end of the night. The amount of oil that pooled up in my t zone was horrifying. This BB's texture is not heavy or creamy. It's actually quite liquid and come out of the tube white. The whole "magic" bit is a little gimmicky. The gritty bits release the pigment and then you blend it in to your skin. I use the "light" shade and it's just a wee bit darker than my skin tone. *These things are darker than you think. I'd go up a shade.* I usually lean towards "medium" shades, but thank goodness I had the luxury of trying a free sample first. It's light and weightless on your skin. No, your skin won't look perfect and poreless but it will look natural and evened out. Don't reach for this if you're looking for fuller coverage. The best bit is that it keeps my oil at bay. Better than most primers and BBs I've ever tried. It stays put for me all day. It's not super hydrating in my opinion but that wasn't my main concern to begin with. I use a serum, lotion and then this so I just remember to pair it with a thicker moisturizer first.

I love this product!  I have extremely dry skin (thanks to the extremely dry Canadian winter) and as a result, BB creams usually don't 'sit' well on my skin.  They typically don't provide a lot of coverage and become flaky/patchy after a couple of hours.  Not this product!  I have fallen in love with this BB cream!   The product blends well and leaves my skin feeling hydrated.  It also provides buildable coverage that lasts long and rarely requires touch ups.I purchased the shade: Nude.  Unfortunately, they only have three shades (Nude, Natural and Golden) which is not ideal.  The package contains 30MLs of product and comes in a squeezable tube.  I like the tube packaging because I know the product is secure and there will be no unexpected 'spillage' in my purse. However, the tube is also a little irritating when trying to squeeze the actual product onto a brush or sponge, because it spills out aggressively and can get a little messy. I also love that NYX products have the PETA bunny on the packaging, so it's easily identifiable as cruelty-free ♥!  The NYX BB Cream costs me $15.00 CAD.Personally, I don't consider this BB cream overpriced (especially when comparing it to 'high end' foundations or bb creams) and it's definitely worth the money knowing that no animals were harmed in order to create the product.   Yay!
