Premium Gold is for mature/dry. Water fuse is for normal/dry/younger skin. Korean skincare/makeup companies tend to use words like premium+Gold for products formulated for mature skin.

I have tried both. I actually liked the look and feel of both, but the premium had better coverage for me and along with the anti-aging ingredients this appealed to me more. I think if I were younger and could get away with slightly less coverage (in my 20s or even early 30s) I would have probably stuck with the Water Fuse because it felt like wearing nothing but finished my skin nicely.

The Premium BB cream is geared towards more combo/dry skin and the Water Fuse is for more oily skin. However, being I'm 30, I choose the Premium over the Water Fuse for it's anti-aging properties, but will give Water Fuse a try. I've used it for the past 3 days and I love it. I do have to blot a bit more through out the day but I think, if you're normal/oily like me, you can do the Premium but just use a lighter moisturizer. I use my moisturizer for the summer now, in our semi-cooler, Hawaiian weather, and use this BB cream on top...PERFECTION!! It has seriously improved my skin. Lines that were forming under my eyes have lessen or a gone and the lines around my mouth a getting better (I love to smile). Everyday, I use this BB cream, my skin just improves. FYI: Another tip I read on the Dr. Jart FB page, you can use the Water Fuse all over and use the Premium as a concealer or on your lines and wrinkles. If Water Fuse works for me too, I'll probably use both that way. WIth this BB cream I usually blot about 2-3 times a day depending on the humidity. Lasting power, pretty good considering I don't use a primer. HTH!!

It all depends on your skin type. If you are mature or dry i would try the water fuse beauty balm. However, if you are oily or combination you will probably like the premium one best since it is not as moisturizing. Im oily and i love the premium bb cream. When i wore the water fuse i was more oily and because of that my foundation did not wear very well and was a mess in about 3-4 hours. Hope that helps =]

I can only comment on the premium. It is lightly tinted, but unlike most tinted moisturizers, the tint doesn't disappear; it helps to cover, almost perfecting my skin. It lightly illuminates, too. I cannot say enough good things about it.

This is a tinted moisturizer that could also be considered a light foundation or makeup. It only comes in this one color which works great for my fair skin, but it is sheer enough to be flexible. I wear it alone and use concealer wherever I need extra coverage, but the package says that it can also be worn under your regular makeup

It's tinted enough to replace a foundation--has a medium amount of coverage. The shade is what I would call beige, not to pink and not too yellow. It even looks a litl gray until you blend it out--then it looks good.

Personally, I would not recommend this. Any type of foundation/BB/CC just adds extra layer of unnecessary stuff on skin - and in my experience, this was very heavy, clogged my pores, and turned my face red. If you have a sensitive acne prone skin, I will stick to the ones with lower SPFs (I like Boscia and Shiseido) and reapply when it is necessary.

I would go with the Dr. Jart Premium BB cream. It's designed for more combo/dry skin. I had a few breakouts on my fore head and after 3-days of using this BB cream, WOW!! Even some scarring I had from an old zit lightened. For me, this BB cream is med in coverage but still looks natural. I don't use concealer anymore. Covers pores wonderfully, even without a primer. This was for me though, what works for me, may turn out differently for you. Hope you find something that works!!

I live in Tucson and ride my bike all day to and from campus. I have oily skin and perspire a good amount riding the bike everywhere. Unfortunately I can't use anything under spf 45 due to the climate here & my skin is coated with a protective layer of non-oil absorbent balm. It moisturizes,but is not good for my young skin in this hot climate. It gave me so many pimples, but may be better for skin not exposed to the sun all day.

Premium Gold label is officially made for mature skin. It says so on the original Asian release. Most BB cream companies use "gold label" universally to represent the mature formula. The water fuse provides hydration, and the coverage is so minimal that i would not use it. It has definitely been altered for the US release,as the original release in asia has spf27, no spf odor and more coverage.

I would rec the water based formula if you have oiler/combo skin. I have aging skin (only 39 LOL, but my skin is still in good shape because I am a freak about it), and I am considering buying the water based formula for summer as well. I think I will upgrade to the non-water based formula for winter though. In the meantime, I am going to get samples of both before I make my decision. It really seems like this is a great product.

Here's my take: The premium is very lifting and I find it rather drying. Its meant for older skin, a little antiaging and a much higher SPF. The other Dr. Jart BB cream is moisturizing. So it depends on how much moisture you need and whether or not you need the lifting aspect of the BB cream (and if you need 45 SPF). I live in a desert and need the higher SPF, but I also need moisture, so I'm torn.

From my understanding, and from what I've read about the two, the premium BB is more of an anti aging makeup and skin care, whereas the other is more hydrating. It says it's 50% water after all, whereas the Premium has biopeptides to protect skin.

I think it depends on the person using it. I use it as my foundation because I don't like the heavy feel of some foundations. I put on this BB Cream then add some translucent powder along with my regular eye/lip makeup and I love it. If you want something with more coverage, you could just put on a second application, or just go with foundation instead of a BB cream.

It depends on how much coverage you need.

If you have generally nice skin and only need some evening out, then you can use it alone. If you want more coverage, you can easily layer on foundation over it. That's why it's considered both a foundation and a primer.

I was in the store and asked for a normal foundation sort of thing that I could wear everyday that was subtle and just covered imperfections and she suggested this. She then did my make up with it, and did not put anything on over it except under eye luminizer.

If you can, I would get to a Sephora store to check the colors on your skin tone. In addition, Clinique and another brand (I believe it was called Marks or Marts) has a beauty balm in various shades. You really need to find the one that's best for you. I will say, the Boscia one has "sparkles" in it for a luminizing effect, but it didn't work with my skin tone.

To use this gel, pump out on a q-tip and rub area where spot is located. I only use this where the spots where on my face, not all over. Murad products have never let me down!
