This has good good coverage, but can make my face look really flat or too matte if I don't add something to it. I like putting on something that has a highlight to it like MAC strobe cream first before I apply it. I also mix in a little lotion (nuetrogena sesame lotion) to make the bb easier to apply. When I do all of this it's looks more natural on my face and still has good coverage. I like that it has spf 30 in it, that's always nice to have and it didn't seem to make my face look as oily as when I use a regular spf 30+ product under a foundation.

I received this as a gift at Christmas and was pleasantly surprised by the coverage provided. For a BB cream the coverage is great, although I do tend to gravitate to lighter options so I don't completely hide my freckles. That said, if you want to hide freckles then this is the cream for you!
I have really dry and sensitive skin so I always wear a moisturizer underneath and never had an issue with the cream pilling or fading over the course of the day. This really is a great BB cream and I use it for more dramatic makeup looks.

I have very sensitive, acne-prone, fair skin. I use Clinique's probiotic anti-redness solutions foundation (the lightest shade) and this product is a great addition to that. I prefer it over Dior's BB creme (too much fragrance, which is questionable for sensitive skin.) As I have combination skin (very oil but prone to dryness where acne med are applied) a product such as this is quite helpful: my makeup lasts throughout the day, it does not feel too heavy (I live in a VERY humid and tropical environment, so this is quite an accomplishment for a liquid makeup product) and my pores are not so apparent. As for the matter of skin tone, I was reluctant as there were only two choices. I have blue tones to my skin (it is really that white) and the blemishes of times past have left pink marks (Clinique's Dark Spot Corrector is fixing it though bit by bit) but this BB cream addresses effectively the broad range of issues. I give it a 5 star rating, because it is quite versatile, the texture is great, and a little goes a LONG way. Also, it looks good in natural lighting (such as the outdoors) which is REALLY a big deal if you have very fair skin and need the SPF.

I usually do not wear makeup, but wen I do clinique’s bb cream is my go to! I use this as a foundation. I have very oily skin and my skin is prone to break out if I wear any kind of heavy foundation. I’ve tried many different sample brands of BB creams, but I’ve always come back to Clinique’s. It is light weight, gives moderate coverage, but for me that is fine as my skin doesn’t react well to harsh, heavy chemicals found in some foundations. If you are looking for a fresh faced clean simple look. Look no further! Clinique is your best bet! Amazing product.

This was the first BB creme I had ever tried. The lightest shade doesn’t match my skin tone. It gave decent coverage, but nothing more then any other similar product. It didn’t last very long on my face. I didn’t use a setting powder because I was using it during the summer for grab and go coverage. I found that I had to repeatedly reapply this product to keep it looking fresh. I would suggest trying a sample to make sure the tone matches your skin. I believe this product would work better in a cooler climate or during colder weather. It doesn’t do very well in the heat, so I have discontinued using it. The sunscreen is effective, but it does give minor flashback. I also had a huge break out, so I believe this cream blocked my pores. If you have acne prone skin, this probably isn’t the product for you.

I got color matched and picked up a sample of the clinique BB Cream and was impressed with the formula being non-greasy which was perfect for the warmer seasons. The coverage was just enough as expected from a BB cream. I don't think it lasted the entire work day which was a disappointment. The biggest flaw was the color tone which has an ashy cast.

I’ve used this B.B. cream for years. It’s a great product and covers a lot of bases, being an exceptionally high SPF for a face makeup, along with providing very good coverage. I would be careful if you have inherently greasy skin, however, because the product is not particularly mattifying and can grease up over the course or the day.

Wasn't the best but wasn't terrible either. I picked this up after I seen it on a girlfriend of mine and it looked great on her skin. For me the didn't seem to be much coverage and it looked rather oily on my dry skin which I found to be odd. One thing I liked is it felt very refreshing on the skin, not heavy or cakey in anyway.

I absolutely love Clinique. I have nothing bad to say about this product. Personally I don’t like wearing foundation because I don’t like how heavy it is on my face so I found like using B.B. cream was better for me & if you are interested in a long lasting one that helps and makes your skin feel great. Definitely recommend it 💛

Great bb cream! I love to use it in the summer when I’m going for lighter coverage and a more breathable look! Not cakey at all and very blendable! It gives me the perfect amount of coverage as I don’t really have acne but do have a little bit of uneven skin tone.

I know BB Creams tend to be a light coverage product, how light is this one? I have tried some that go on watery thin, and they were not my favorite.

Does this still work well? I have purchased the BB Cream from Garnier. The tone I had bought was way too dark. And the tone above that was way too light. It felt thick on my skin. And I did not see any results as far as correcting any skin problems I had. Is this product light on the skin? Are there several tones to choose from?
