contains skin-plumping collagen and it will moisturize the skin

Benefits and Uses: L’Oreal Paris is certainly a legend in the cosmetic world because everyone has heard of that name. This product boasts that it contains skin-plumping collagen and it will moisturize the skin to the deepest levels imaginable. It will even out all the wrinkles and it has been tested by dermatologists. The dermatologists tested it for its gentleness on people with oily skin and it was overwhelmingly approved.    

Feedback:  This first review was written by a 60-year-old black female. She says her jawline has sunken slightly. She has very large pores on her nose and cheeks and she has lost volume in her cheeks. She never tried any L’Oreal products before but she thought she would give this one a shot.

She was absolutely amazed at the results. She tried it for the first time and her skin felt so velvety and smooth. She really liked the touch of her skin. She used it for a week mixing it with another beauty product.She applied it in the morning and at bedtime. After about a week she noticed she had more volume on her cheeks which really surprised her. She had a much more defined jawline, her skin was no longer dry. Pretty darn good results after using the product for only a week. She was happy her skin was smooth and it felt very nice when she touched it.

The other product she was using did not work well with her makeup. It made the makeup clumpy and the makeup rolled off her face. It also made her skin look ashy. So, she stopped using that product and just used the L’Oreal product independently. It made a dramatic difference in her makeup application. She used the product under her makeup and it went on so smoothly and her makeup hasn’t looked that good on her face in a long time. Her face had a natural matted look and she said she cannot remember the last time she looked so good. She has tried every product on the market through the years but this one is truly a keeper. She hoped people will benefit from reading her review.

all-in-one answer for anti-aging and it will firm the skin

Benefits and Uses: This product boasts an all-in-one answer for anti-aging and it will firm the skin, reduce wrinkles, and even the skin tone. All the things a person would want it to do. It moisturizes for 24 hours and the packaging may vary. They have a straight to the point list of benefits for the product. Would a longer detailed list of benefits help to sell more of the product?

Feedback: This consumer couldn’t find it in the store but she is very glad she found it online. She says it doesn’t dry her skin out and it is her lotion too. One product doing two functions not bad.

All for one price as well. This is a keeper according to another client who says it works great on her skin. She says you don’t need a lot to cover your skin. In this case, a little bit goes a long way. This bb cream gave this customer a nice glow and it went on smoothly. She will order more once this bottle runs out. This is a dream come true for this client. She says it applies smoothly, blends easily, provides protection against the sun, leaves her skin looking natural, and she feels like she is not wearing makeup.

The customer is nearly sixty-years-old and people think she is younger. She owes it to this product. This is her foundation and she likes that it acts like a sunscreen. It also makes your skin look and feel good, it adds natural texture to the face and adds color to the skin. It doesn’t go like a gel which the more you apply the more you will roll on your skin. They also make your skin look “dirty”.the product goes on clean and stays on clean all day long. It doesn’t run under the makeup. She really likes the product.

This client thinks this is cool that this product only needs to be applied only once a day. You don’t have to keep applying it every hour on the hour.. This is a real money-saver. Another consumer found her former product hard to find so she switched to this product. She says it works as well as the former product and this product is much cheaper. The only problem is the SPF 15 is low. She wears this product under her foundation. She says a mile above sea level you need sunscreen. She thinks you should wear sunscreen at lower levels as well.

Another client tried two different shades both marked light/medium and she applied the lighter one labeled light/medium. It was too dark for her very fair skin. It left an orange color line ending at her hairline and jaw. The other option was darker and it too was labeled light/medium. She thinks this was the right designation for the darker one but the lighter shade was not light/medium. It also dried out her skin and she made it very clear she would not be using this as her regular makeup. This veteran consumer was disappointed in the changed product. She believes the sunscreen in the changed product is heavier than the sunscreen in the previous product she had used for years. She is very disappointed in the changed product. It sounds like she will not be using this product anymore.    

Another consumer tried this product and used it for a week to really give it a chance. She felt like she was wearing clay. The product really did nothing for her and she was not impressed with the product. This client is using this product as a secondary base as she puts it. She has bought three tubes of the product and the consistency has been different in all three tubes.  The first tube was thick the second tube was too watery and the third tube was thick again. her friend experienced the same issues with consistency in the product. The lighter consistency spread better on the skin than the thick stuff did. She uses this product as a secondary base when she goes to the gym. She saves her more expensive base for more formal outings, This product is not her main base. This client says she has freckles and has never used foundation on her skin. She did a lot of research on foundations. She decided on this product and she says it makes her look younger and the bb cream spreads lightly across her skin. She really likes the product.

SKIN79 Super Plus BB Cream Best

toned down the natural redness of her skin

Benefits and Uses: The product has a very sparse description and gives no information about the benefits of the product. All it says is that it is made in Korea, has 3-7 gram tubes, and comes in pink, orange, and gold. It does raise red flags that the manufacturer did not give a more detailed description of the product. You do not know what you are paying for and what the product will do for your skin. I applied magnification to the images of tubes of product and the writing on the tubes were so blurred you could not read what the descriptions were saying.

The only way you can find out about the product (without reading reviews) is to buy the product and experiment with it to see if it will benefit your skin. You may spend the money and find out the product is non-beneficial for you. Then you end up wasting money. Even if you do read other reviews you still do not have a list of direct benefits from the maker of the product. The product needs to have a list of benefits and ingredients contained in the product. What if there is an ingredient that is in the product that your skin is allergic to and I mean severely allergic to. You wouldn’t know it until you bought the product tried it on and then you have an unpleasant reaction to it.

Feedback: The client bought a sample pack of the product and tried all three. For her specific skin tone, the pink was the most effective. It toned down the natural redness of her skin and went on lightly and smoothly. It did not make her skin break out. It had hints of gray which to seem fit her skin well. The gold was subtle gold undertone but it caused her skin to break out and went on a little thicker than the pink. It was also the one that made her skin glow. The orange had a more subtle gray undertone and it too caused her skin to breakout. It was thicker and harder to blend than the other two and it made her skin glow a little less than the gold one did.  She decided to use the pink one since it fit the natural color of her skin the best. She had to experiment with all three to see which one would work best. If she had an ingredient list and benefits list she could have chosen the right product for her skin ahead of time instead of having to buy the sample pack of three.

Another customer had positive things to say about the three colored tubes. The pink one has classic coverage for her skin, the orange is thinner and it builds well on her skin and the gold is thicker and covers blemishes well. So it sounds like the three fit her skin needs in unique ways. She will use all three tubes of product.

Another happy customer aid the three tubes were great for traveling and she has noticed an improvement in her skin from using all three tubes of product. Another customer tried out the small trial tubes and said they worked well for her. The tubes are perfect for traveling. She said the pink was her favorite. In three previous reviews, the customers said the pink tube worked best for them. It seems like the pink tube is the preferred color among customers and works the best for the skin.  

The client used the pink and the tube off and on with the orange tube and found both colored tubes worked well for her skin. The tubes are small but they last a long time. A little bit will cover a lot of skin. She showed a before and after picture of her hand. There was a notable improvement in her skin after using the tubes of product. She says the pictures were not attractive because her skin had a lot of wrinkles and lines but the after picture showed that the cream had made some positive improvements on her skin.

perfect, prime, moisturize and protect the skin

Benefits and Uses: Benefits and Uses: This product is said to perfect, prime, moisturize and protect the skin. It contains anti-aging ingredients such as jojoba oil, cucumber, and vitamin E. These ingredients will hydrate the skin and nourish it as well. The product will also reduce fine lines and blend invisibly with a natural tint of color on your skin.

Feedback: The client says she is fair but tans very easily. So, her complexion changes with the seasons. This product she mixes in with other foundations and it blends well and applies smoothly on the skin. She would buy the product again but in a darker shade next time.  Another customer does love the product but she has to add another product to this product to cover her dark skin. She doesn’t use powder because her skin is too dry. This product gives her skin a nice glow and it lasts all day. She will purchase it again.

Another client has other foundations but she will use this one on her two-week vacation. It is the perfect traveling size and it works well for her skin. The tube will last for the whole two-week trip.

This customer was very disappointed with this product and her review reflects that disappointment. She bought the nude tone and the bottle came without a pump and the product was open and sticky. Poor packaging to say the least. The color looked darker than the lightest shade and it was. She tried a little dab on her hand and it turned orange and oxidized. It also irritated her skin. She will not buy the product again.

doubles as a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 15

Benefits and Uses: This product doubles as a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 15. This isn’t strong protection from the sun but it is better than none at all. This product is for light to the medium colored skin. Its active ingredient is the Noni plant which is rich in antioxidants and hydrating properties. It is claimed that it has been clinically proven to have nine skin benefits.

Feedback: This customer doesn’t really say whether they are for the product or not. They say that they need light for their light-yellow colored skin but they need the medium shade in the summer. Then they say medium may be too light in the summer. This product works better than the company’s foundation, but they say the product works. So, where they stand on the product do they like it or not?      

Another person was not excited about the product. The shade was too dark for their very fair skin. They tried the product for a week and it didn’t do anything for them. They went back to their old routine.     


BB creams can make a difference on the skin if you get the right one for the skin. It can reduce thin lines, wrinkles and in some cases shrink pores. Some people used a bb cream and it irritated their skin.Others would use the same bb cream and it would work wonders for them.
