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!

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. I have yet to find my HG American bb cream. So far, I really like the ones from Korea, ones you have to order online.

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.

Even if you find that it doesn't quite match your skin tone, I highly recommend you try this product out for its many other benefits. Simply wear it around the house and soak it in. By far, this is the best purchase I have made in my life and I will continue to buy this product. If you really want a cream that will more closely match your skin tone, I would try out the other BB cream by Dr. Jart. The shade is slightly darker than this BB cream's, which is a very light, ashy color. Good luck! :)

It depends on your skin type and your needs. If you have dry skin, sensitive skin, or both, then this product is good for you. If you don't, and you need something that can cover up blemishes and acne scars, then I would suggest Missha Perfect Cover BB cream. The Water Fuse BB cream doesn't do much in terms of coverage, so you'll have to wear foundation/concealer over it.

I have oily skin and tried this and the other (gold) type sold at sephora. The gold so far has been much better though I still mix the gold type with a mattifyer before applying. However, the higher sunscreen in the gold may cause more breakouts because it's thicker. The high hydration in the water-fuse type did not make me break out like crazy but it did make me more oily in general, especially in the t-zone. I recommend the black label (not sold by sephora).
