Questions & Answers for Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25 PA++

Question
I am fair, with yellow undertones and roseacea should I use this, or the premimum Dr. Jart
I know that this product comes basically in one shade, however, I am fair, yellow undertones and do have roseacea, would this product, or the premium Dr. Jart suit me better? I just do not want to look too "pinkish"

This one has a more gray tone to it which works wonders to cancel out the pink tones. The Premium version is more pink toned and pearly looking. I think the water fuse or the detox one would work better for your purposes.

My skin is exactly the same as yours sounds; this stuff works great! I swear it covers my rosacea better than any of the "full coverage" foundations I've tried, and it doesn't have a grey undertone like some BBCreams. :)

I am also fair/light, golden undertone with rosacea. I just started using the Water Fuse BB by Dr. Jart. The color is perfect and very forgiving. It goes on very cool which feels great on skin with rosacea. It starts out looking a little pale, but very quickly turns into a perfect color-match. It feels very natural and doesn't sink into my wrinkles and lines around the mouth. It gives a youthful appearance to the skin and doesn't look like makeup at all. It looks like your skin doesn't need makeup. In the past year, I've tried Bare Minerals, Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation, Clinique's new Repairwear Makeup and their Redness Solutions Makeup. They are good products, just not for me. I like this sooooo much better! It covers all my flaws, spots, scars, pores, veins, etc. without looking like a mask.

I have combination skin with a somewhat oily t-zone and Water Fuse did not cause my skin to break out. Of course, I only started using it in the past month or so and since the weather has turned cooler, my skin is drier - so that may be preventing the breakouts. I would definitely use this product in the winter again. I'll have to wait and see about summer weather - I live where it gets very humid.

I would go with Dr. Jart! It is water-infused and really absorbs well. It doesn't sit on your skin, which would be troublesome for normal to dry skin types. It is very moisturizing but never feels oily. There is no real difference between the Water-Infused BB Cream and the Premium BB Cream (both from Dr. Jart), other than the SPF factor. Boscia's is not quite as creamy as Dr. Jart's. Hope this helps!

Yes, this is completely fine for dry skin, oily skin, and pretty much any time of skin. BB Cream is intended for people who want coverage, want to look natural, and don't want to spend time putting on makeup. I suggest that before putting your BB Cream, put some lotion. ~ every time I put BB Cream I first put lotion and some concealer and after that the BB cream. After putting the BB cream I put like translucent powder or a light powder foundation

No. I have combination skin and it highlighted all my dry areas, like around the mouth. I think it might work if you use a rich moisturizer. I found that at the end of the day (at least 5-6 hours later), there are less flakes, so at least it gets better as you have it on longer during the day.

BB Creams were originally designed to protect skin (SPF), reduce redness and irritation (primarily from in-office medical treatments), and help treat/moisturize the skin as it repaired itself (hence the original name "blemish balm"). Asian tv soap stars discovered this and began using it to give a flawless finish, usually under makeup. Now, the "blemish balms" are used for more than minimizing skin imperfections (which is the TRUE meaning of blemish and not necessarily about acne, breakouts, or congested skin), which is why some companies are using "Beauty Balm" or "BB Cream" to describe the product.

Water Fuse (and all of the Dr. Jart BB creams) does have a tint to it but it doesn't seem to change my skin color. I have olive skin and when I first squeezed some out of the tube I was worried that it would be too pale for my skin and make me look weird. Thankfully, and oddly, it blends right it and disappears. Maybe buy the set (of 4 smaller sizes) before you buy a full-size bottle?
Also, I use the Korres primer before I use my Water Fuse - my skin looks flawless and dewy. I have combination skin and it doesn't break out using these 2 in combination.

I would recommend this product for your skin, personally! I have dry, acne-prone skin and this works wonderfully (especially with a stippling brush). I would ask for a sample and try it for a few days, maybe apply a little bit of powder to the areas where you tend to get oily on one of those days, but also try it without as this product has a less dewy finish once it dries.

The product is essentially the same. The only real difference is that one has more sunscreen than the other.
