I’ve been hearing so much hype about the new BB creams, so I was eager to try the New Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream ($12.99). Olay claims that it will eliminate “blotches and imperfections,” and that it contains five skin-perfecting benefits, plus a SPF 15. They also say that the cream “hydrates for up to 24-hours with a splash of sheer color.”
I used this product a few times and thought it more than lived up to its claims. The cream creates and excellent base for any product you want to add over it (i.e.: foundation, blush, bronzer, powder) — and it is indeed hydrating.
It did a great job on its own too; the coverage is good enough so that you can skip the foundation and go straight to the blush/bronzer step of your routine. And at $12.99, it is very well-priced and delivers a lot of bang for your buck. My sole gripe is about the SPF, which is only 15. I prefer an SPF of at least 30. I hope Olay will consider reformulating this excellent product and upping the SPF.
Will any of you lovely ladies be trying out this BB cream? Let us know by commenting below (if you do, you just might win a free sample)!
