Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring it back! Like so many other comments before me- I absolutely cannot believe you have discontinued this product (and have nothing replacing it). This was the best- light coverage, blended in easily and well, never felt like wearing any makeup but looked great. Very sad it's no longer available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring it back!! I’ve been using a version of this product for years. I used the tinted facial moisturizer for years until it was discontinued and then this until gone. I have a hard time finding a tinted moisturizer matching my brown skin. So sad to see the only Kiehls product that matches my skin go away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unusable Hopeful to see this formula has been discontinued, because the old formula needs a lot of work. I have been using it for 6 months and have finally accepted that it is unusable. It has never spread evenly, always pills, and I have tried everything to make it work. Really disappointing for me because living in Southern California SPF and vitamin C is essential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring it back! This has been my go to Kiehls staple for so many years. It’s my favorite product... it has allowed me to just put it in my face with a little mascara and go out the door. I’m so disappointed this product has been discontinued... please tell me you’re coming out with something better. Big fan of Kiehls and this formula was by far my favorite

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRING IT BACK!!! I absolutely LOVE this product and am so disappointed to learn it’s been discontinued. It’s the perfect product - extremely lightweight, but offers protection while making my skin look flawless without any makeup. This has been my “go-to” product every day and probably my favorite Kiehl’s product overall. I’m running low and I don’t know what I’ll do without it!!! PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please bring back BB Cream! I have been using BB cream for a few years and love it because it evens out my skin tone without looking (or feeling) like a heavy makeup. I'm so very disappointed that this is not available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Formula, Too Few Shades! I love this BB cream because it's less heavy and easier to apply than foundation. For everyday, it's much more practical for my lifestyle and I look finished (subtle glow, imperfections minimized) without looking too makeup-y. The only thing I wish was that Kiehls MADE THIS IN MORE SHADES. It's been years and they still have the same limited selection. I'm a lot lighter than their lightest shade and they have nothing on the darker end for melanin gifted women. Can we get a pale shade please?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like a photo filter I bought this as an alternative to the Bare Minerals tinted moisturizer I had been using. I am really impressed with this product, has been wonderful for the summer with a beautiful finish that isn't overdone but definitely evens out skin tone. The SPF lasts ALL day as well and my cream bronzer/blush and setting powder and bronzer/blush layered beautiful over it. Was planning on only using it for the summer but am going to consider using this year round! Also, you really don't need much, I have found a pea sized amount goes a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this for quick errands or as primer I LOVE this BB cream - it completely changes my skin tone to an even non-blotchy calming look. It is easy to put on (i just use my hands). It has definitely helped clear my face up because I can leave the house with just this on and do not have to put foundation on. IT LOOKS AMAZING under my foundation, it glides on and will also keep my face hydrated which keeps my foundation looking even and light.

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 5 out of 5 by from best purchase ever i have been using this product since 2015 it's light and serves two purposes for me sun protection and also like a foundation that covers my skin imperfections!

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 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING BB CREAM This BB cream is amazing!! i normally just do regular foundation but have wanted to go for something lighter and this stuff is amazing. it is literally magic. it makes my skin look so good and glowy! It can work for so many looks you can do it just by it self or with powder or just with some bronzer i am obsessed!!

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"!
