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"

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.

u can doubt this bb cream from hiding any imperfection you may have on your face because it barely covers my tiny sunspot. the only way you can get coverage out of this is by using a sponge and dabbing onto the area you want extra coverage. this technique makes this bb cream look more even and flawless on my skin than blending it out with my hands.

I have oily skin and this does not work for me. I much prefer the Premium over this. It's all preference. If you look at the labeling on the shelf, Premium is for more full-coverage vs the Water Fuse if for light-coverage. I like more coverage so despite the fact the the Premium is for combo/dry skin, I purchased that. I like it, I just use a lighter moisturizer in the morning or just my serum. Also, I like that the Premium has anti-aging properties, SPF, and whitening (don't quote me on the last one because I'm not looking at my product right now)HTH!

I have combo/oil skin and I"ve been using this for about 2 weeks...no huge shininess but I hear there are much better BB creams for combo or oily skin. I dust with matte powder after application (to remove the "glow" that others want but we don't) in the morning then blot once or twice a day with oil-removing sheets and it's been fine.

My age - 53: This is my first purchase of any BB cream. I'm 53, and I love this. The hyularonic acid plumped up all my fine lines everywhere, and I was incredibly amazed that it evened out my skin perfectly (I have yellow undertones, the usual bluish eye circles, and a little redness). It looks great all day on me and did not settle into the fine lines like everything else. I'm throwing out all my other foundations for this. Hope it works for y'all!

yes, you can use it with a primer for a longer stay. I would really suggest a skin 79 BB Cream if your wanting to use a primer. This is a bit heavy for me and Skin 79 creams are much lighter and softer on your skin. they seem to last longer on their own and last all day and night with a primer.

I guess you could use bb cream as a primer but it's supposed to eliminate steps in your morning routine. A bb cream is supposed to be your moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer all in one.

Yes, you can use as primer and use foundation/powders over it. However, if you want your primer to be very oil-controlling, then BB creams aren't the choice. If it's just to give some radiance and extra coverage, then BB creams make the perfect base! Original name is "blemish base" as you can see from the original asia market release.

The product is essentially the same. The only real difference is that one has more sunscreen than the other. I tried both of them on my skin and I will say that the higher SPF version took longer to blend in and the color came out a bit gray. I would use the lower SPF version in the blue bottle. Unless you are looking for ultimate sun block protection.
