Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay, but a bit too heavy I was looking for something lightweight and sheer, and this was a bit heavy for my taste. I found the fair/light tone to be too orange for my light olive undertone, and unfortunately the color easily transferred onto my clothing (especially in warmer weather). I think this would work better for someone who wants a dewier effect and has a warm undertone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slightly dissapointed I recently purchased this product and was informed that the darkest color available was medium. I did try a small amount and because of the lighting in the mall I felt that it work for my skin tone. This morning when I put it on I looked like a ghost. I Hope that you all come out with darker shades for those of us with darker complections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BB Cream: Not too thick and has Vitamin C Adding Vitamin C has been a game changer in my skin care... with this product, I get a smoothed out skin tone and Vit C! The cream covers enough (I'll wear powder on top of a blemish) without being think and clumping in my pores after a few hours. A lot of foundation and/or bb cream does that. Oh heck, I forgot it has SPF too! Definitely my favorite/go-to product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holy grail BB cream This is the best BB cream I have ever tried! I looove that it contains vitamin C and SPF 50! It does not leave my skin greasy or cakey, and I love the smell. Almost reminds me of a very subtle honey scent. The only con is the lack of shades. I’ve read reviews dating 2+ years back that mention the discontinued shades of deeper tones. Please expand this and make this available for darker skin tones!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from By far my favorite skincare product EVER This is the holy grail of my skin routine. It's hydrating, protective, and it's almost like I can feel my skin being nourished every time I wear it. I love that its still evens out my skin while not being full coverage or cakey and it lasts all day. I've worn it every day for 3 years and I don't ever see myself changing to another product. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the shade range NEEDS to be expanded. Please make more of an effort to cater to your diverse customer base!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Kiehl's Product I wear this BB Cream as a primer beneath my foundation every day and I love it. Not only is lightweight and blends easily with your hands or a brush, but it has the highest SPF content without being able to smell it or feel it like other products. After I wash and moisturize my face (let it dry), I apply this product. I recommend letting the BB Cream dry and then locking it in with a translucent powder before applying your foundation. Perfect for my oily skin and stays on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expand the range of color tones The product offers coverage, moisturizer, and SPF in an easy to use package, but while the line once offered six shades - including “medium deep” and “deep” - it now only offers four, with the darkest “medium” ruling out most African American and South Asian complexions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Repurchasing Due to Shade Range I tried this out and loved it (I found both medium and tan suitable). I wanted to share my new find with my mother + aunts, all 80s babies who have never taken SPF seriously. But thats when I saw that this brand doesnt even carry a shade for them. It's a disturbing trend that companies in 2019 still only make products for fair to tan skinned clients. I will not be repurchasing anymore, and it makes me question the ethics of my skincare purchases from this brand as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from natural looking, love the high spf, the smell is not great While it feels heavy on application, it dries to a pleasant texture. It's also very natural looking, and I love the high spf. I do wish the smell was more pleasant, but you stop noticing it after a few minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great when applied with a brush I almost returned this because it didn't go on smoothly and turned crumbly and ashy. But someone recommended I apply it with a brush and I love it! Medium coverage of my melasma that lasts all day, super smooth and easy to apply evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice coverage It’s definitely will not cover all but it’s really great at correcting skin tone. I wear every day and loving it will purchase more very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BB Cream Hands Down A few have mentioned this is very sheer, and I find it to be a quite a bit more than sheer. That may be because it just matches my skin so well (I use the medium), but I find it to hide quite a few of my imperfections. I have naturally VERY oily skin, and this has been making my skin feel less gross towards the end of the day. I received this first in a sample from a previous order and tried it before going outside to do yard work- I am really happy with the consistency. A little goes a long way like all their products which I am happy about. My skin feels and looks so good after using this, I can't recommend it enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please expand your skin tone palette This really is a great product but unfortunately I am unable to continue using it since Kiehl's no longer makes the Medium/Deep. Fortunately for me when I found out they were discontinuing this color, ( 2 plus years ago) which by the way was supposed to be temporary per the store I visited, I purchased the last 5 tubes in the store. I'm finally down to my last tube and have started looking for alternatives. Kiehl's, please add more skin tones to your color palette. This is a great product but is clearly not for "EVERYONE"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is such a rare product. I´ve been counting on it for the longest time. Most covering products have a nasty effect on my skin, I have sensitive acne-prone skin, but this product has never broke me out and it really is a very strong sun protection. Also I am quite fair so it was such a gift to find something that does not make me look orange. Last time I was at the shop I was forced to buy the new CC cream - it`s horrible ...the texture, the color, all of it. So sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fair/Light OUT OF STOCK!! I love this BB cream and I can’t find fair/light anywhere. I heard Kiehls is coming out with CC cream and discontinuing this. I really wish Kiehls would still offer this until the CC cream is actually available. Unfortunately I have no other option but to look for another brand. So disappointing when you find an awesome product and it gets discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BB cream in light shade out of stock This BB cream is absolutely amazing. Have been using this product for years and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I have a combination acne prone skin and it works amazingly well. However, it appears that the bb cream in light shade has been out of stock for ages. I have been trying to order it online for the past 6 weeks and it's still not available. I have been to many shops and even checked the shops in UK but the light shade is not available. What's happening??

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely BB cream I really like this BB cream. I initially received it as a sample and fell in love. I’m extremely pale and don’t need a lot of coverage so this works great to replace my moisturizer and fondation. My only complaint is the smell. It goes away quickly though, so it’s not a deal breaker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not foundation A few issues: Horrible smell! The coverage is pathetic No dark colors!!! Has no clinical benefits - the skin correcting c has no actual science linked to that statement, like some other products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BB Cream +Ultra Facial Cream with SPF = great combo I use the B.B. cream most days, coupled with the Ultra Facial Cream with SPF. Coverage is good and the texture and tint are natural looking. I keep an extra B.B. cream in my travel bag, too. I don’t leave home without either product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Natural Coverage This BB cream is what brought me into Kiehl's. It's amazing, but would like to say right off the bat that Kiehl's should make more shades, especially darker shades, so everyone can feel the magic. This cream has a good texture, on the thick side. It's not a tinted moisturizer, it definitely feels like it's doing more for my skin than just hydrating, it's like I can feel it on my face in a good way all day. I wear this over ultra facial cream and it's not too much hydration. The coverage is light and buildable, very natural looking, and stays put - it doesn't even crease under my eyes. I have allergies so I'm constantly blowing my nose, I noticed right away that much less of this product ends up on the tissue than other foundations. This is just my second day using this product so I can't really speak to the long-term correcting they say it does, but I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best BB cream on the market I have been faithful to this product ever since I discovered Kiehl's a few years back. The product goes on smoothly on top of moisturized or un-moisturized skin. My favorite thing about this product is that it makes my skin look dewy and hides superficial blemishes, perfect for the "no make up " make up look. One thing I'd like to note though is that it doesn't offer a wide range of tones. Before, I used to mix the Deep shade with Light to match my skin tone. They discontinued the Deep shade a while back, and I now worry that they'll stop making the Medium shade since it's been out of stock for a while. I found that the medium shade mixed a bit with light worked best for my skin with yellow undertones. Please, please, please expand your palette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST BB CREAM LOVE LOVE LOVE This BB Cream. I have tried many BB creams in the past. This one goes on smooth with or without a moisturizer. The coverage is light and not heavy! My skin looks amazing the spf 50 is the icing on the cake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing BB Cream I usually don't like BB creams because they provide little to no coverage. This BB cream has a buildable medium coverage that has helped my skin's redness and blemishes over time. It's better than my 110 dollar foundation. It lasts all day long and is super flattering on the skin. Try it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BB Cream I love the smell, it does not leave my face greasy, it protects me and covers the imperfections for hours and hours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More color options I am having a hard to deciding whether I want to keep this product or not. I bought it while on vacation because I was having skin problems and I called my dermatologist who recommended sunscreen to me. As someone with a very dark complexion, I'm guilty of not using sunscreen (for years). Anyway, I found myself in a kiehls and bought this one (for the medium complexion). It works well (I think), doesn't feel greasy, but I'm a little disheartened that the products don't come in a wide enough range for me to benefit as much as all the other customers here are benefitting. Please expand your color options for all of those at the other end of the melanin spectrum!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BB Cream! I just ordered this BB cream for the third time and honestly will never buy any other BB cream or foundation ever. I started using this product probably a year and a half ago and in between orders, tried two other brands just because I was in Sephora and needed more- I regretted it both times I did that. I tried IT brand and Bare Minerals- both great brands but both dried my skin out terribly to the point of flaking off for days not to mention I had to use layers for any coverage which made it have a caked on look. I have dark spots on my chin and parts of my forehead, oily on my forehead and dry pretty much everywhere else. I hate wearing foundation because I could never find anything that fits what I need. With this, I get an even skin tone, moisture in dry parts and matting in the oily places. It's magic, I would highly recommend this product.
