I had the original bb cream before and it was disgusting! Made my skin completely oily!!! However with this by cream, the texture is much different. It's a mousse like texture and leaves your skin with a matte finish. I personally do not like using foundation, but when I ever want to use some I use either this or my Chanel foundation. The coverage is light-medium and the wear isn't so well. By the end of the day your face will be looking dewy which does not looking bad, but if you don't blot, you'll be end up looking like a complete grease ball.
This was very light coverage and I loved that. It applied smoothly on my skin and was great when matched up with Maybelline Baby Face Primer. Didn't notice the acne prevention until I went a few days without it and broke out. Ran out of my first bottle already, NEED to repurchase.
I really like this bb cream, it covers up the redness on my face, and my breakouts are truly starting to look better. The only thing is you definitely have to wear some sort of face powder with it because it makes your face oily later on in the day. And it doesn't stay on through out the day.
This is my favorite thing to tell people about it lasts so long and has improved my skin compared to other brands that say they are for acne prone skin, this one actually works and gives BUILDABLE coverage. also I have extra pale vampire skin and it seems to match and not oxidize after a few hours.
