Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream #SunVoxBox

**products in this post provided by Influenster for testing purposes**

Today I have another Sunkissed VoxBox product to tell y'all about.  The Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen(15 SPF) in Fair to Light.  

Finish your daily beauty regimen with the all-in-one solution with 6 skin perfecting benefits:

• Refreshes skin instantly
• Brightens for a radiant glow
• Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
• Hydrates for 24 hours
• Smoothes for softer feeling skin
• Protects against UV damage with SPF 15 

I'm always honest with my posts and this is no different.  I've used this a couple of times & this product just isn't for me.  I'll tell you why......

I applied this to the right half(or on the left side of the pic) of my face and left the other half bare.  I used my fingers to apply this on freshly cleaned skin.  I have yellow tones and this comes out pink.  I have extremely oily skin, and while this does absorb quickly into the skin, it instantly makes me look like a grease face. 

As you can see here, this is my full face with just the BB Cream on.  I used my phone to show time for the purpose of this review.  Even though the left side of my face looks kinda matte, it isn't.  

Here I am almost 2 hours later, and the oilyness on my face is 10 times worse.  Not the worst I've ever had, but pretty bad.  

So, I took a tissue to blot....
That's right, some of the product came off.  I know it says to reapply at least every 2 hours, but whoah.  

For the purpose of this review, I wore nothing BUT the BB Cream.  I actually have to admit that when I wore it before with a full face, including powder to set and help keep shine down it was actually worse.  My face looked like I squirted oil all over it, my mascara transferred & made me look like I had raccoon eyes, and some of it slid into my eyes making them burn.  

As with most American BB Creams, this is (to me) basically a tinted moisturizer...nothing more.  I know the packaging says both, but it's not a cream.   It's extremely sheer.  I don't think it covered any imperfections, evened tone, or smoothed.  It also has a slight smell that I can't really pinpoint, but I think it's slightly floral.  

I think this product would work much much better for someone with dry skin, as it does moisturize and brighten the skin.  I also think that if this had worked for me, that the light to medium would have worked better for my NC25 skin.  

If you have dry skin, go give this a try.  You can find this at and for around $12.99.
