This is great Summer release as it is light coverage plus the added benefit of salicylic acid is great for those who have issues with acne or blemishes.
Take a look!
If you’re like me and not prone to acne or blemishes the Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream formula might not be right for you however, the original Dream Fresh BB Cream is perfectly suitable for other skin types.
Dream Pure BB Cream got an early launch in the UK and abroad and will be finally popping up at US drugstores.
The formula promises to:
- Clear Acne
- Conceals Imperfections
- Minimizes the look of pores
- Reduces the appearance of redness
- Adjusts to skin tone
- Hydrates and smooths
- Enhances and clarifies
I tried this in medium and even though I’m not prone to blemishes I still wanted to personally get a feel for the product. This a creamy gel texture absorbs easily into skin. The texture is exactly like the Dream Fresh formula. There really isn’t a ton of difference here aside from the fact this is formulated for blemish prone skin.

I find the texture quite hydrating but not as hydrating as the Dream Fresh formula. This surprised me as I expected something matte. I doesn’t make skin oily, greasy, or shiny and absorbs easily leaving skin soft and smooth with very breathable, weightless coverage. If nothing at all Maybelline totally scores points here for product that’s beautifully formulated. I think it missed the mark slightly as far as BB Cream coverage goes as it is sheerer so it perfects, evens out skin tone, will address dullness by brightening but won’t necessarily conceal major skin issues. I’d say it was a step above a tinted moisturizer in terms of coverage. I love how this melds so beautifully with my skin without being oily or greasy. The product doesn’t oxidize quickly which is the case with hydrating formulas such as this. If you set it with powder you’ll likely get a good five hours of wear from it. Sadly, it doesn’t not contain sun protection which tends to be a key benefit of most Asian BB Creams. I use my own SPF prior to any other products anyway so I’m always a little on the fence about SPF in products anyway so I don’t think I mind too much that it is missing here!
Based on clinical studies done by Maybelline the product works within two weeks to reduce the appearance of blemishes. I think it’s a nice option to have something that treats as you wear it. Considering you apply foundation in the AM and you’re wearing it through the day why not choose a product that you know is going treat your skin as you wear it. Maybelline also included Vitamins C and E.
As with Dream Fresh BB Cream, Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream is quite a lovely, lightly textured base that will be a welcome part of your Summer makeup regime. It wears comfortable, wears long without fading, feels incredible on skin, and has an amazing finish! Rejoice blemish prone girls and guys Maybelline’s Pure BB Cream formula is perfect for you!
Available at drugstores starting in June (and some locations already have it in stock as I’ve had reader’s mention seeing it at Walmart already) for $8.99.
