I've tried it by itself when I am having a dry skin day and it didn't turn out well. When I tried it again with moisturizer first, it worked perfectly. I would suggest using a moisturizer first if your overly dry.

This product doesn't have oil-controlling ingredients, so if you moisturize well with a moisturizer before applying bb cream, you should be ok. Dr. jart does have black label bb cream for dry skin:

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.
Probably not going to offer you all day hydration if you have really dry skin, but I would recommend using Clinique's moisture surge underneath of this product and that should do that trick for you!
