Questions & Answers for Boscia B.B. Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++

Question
Does it photograph well?
I've heard that BB creams can give your face a ghostly gray-white cast in pictures because of the flash bouncing off of it. Does this product do that?

This is one of the best BB creams I have ever tried. HOWEVER, when I took a picture of my face, I was in shock to see that my face looked white!! This BB cream made my medium-tan skin appear ghostly. It was not a good look at all. Even though it made my face appear flawless free, I could not buy buy because it does not look good in pictures. Maybe for lighter skin it's ok?

I think a lot comes down to your actual skintone and how well this one-shade-fits-all shade goes with your skin. I personally didn't have any issues in the way it photographed and I use photography studio lights, which will without a doubt show off any white cast that may happen from a product. I've attached my before & after photo using this BB Cream.

I wouldn't say that it photographs super well, because I haven't tried to test it out so to say, but you definitely will not get the same grey cast as you would if you were to wear other BB creams such as Missha and skin79. The cream is actually an olive tone rather than a gray tone, and it doesn't really oxidize either.

You must be trying to achieve super duper coverage...This product is made to be used alone with maybe a concealer...If I were you, I would first of course cleanse, then moisturize, then prime then either BB cream OR foundation, and you choose whether you want to use concealer before or after either bb or foundation, YOU don't need BOTH honey...lol

I'm actually surprised at some of the responses to the question. Some people seem to think that you are getting all these great benefits that makes this something that should be the first layer. BB cream has some added benefits, but it really doesn't do much for you at all when compared to other skin care routines (which it sound like you are following). Most people you BB cream for two purposes, either as their only form of makeup, so it just gives a sheer coverage, or as a base for foundation, which allows for better overall coverage. Regardless of whether or not foundation is used, I highly recommend using a primer with it. I always use the smash box primer with this. You can use the primer, the BB cream, and then follow with foundation.

When it comes down to it all, however, there really is no "right way." Even professional makeup artists say different things about the order makeup should be applied. I just have found that primer before BB is particularly helpful for me.

Using a primer is optional with this and it sure doesnt hurt - I sometimes use with a primer since the one I use has healthy skin stuff in it (like vit c and more sunscreen), and gives my skin a tad more moisture so that my bb cream goes on a lot smoother.

SO I guess it depends on your primer - since I know there are ones that are beneficial - that give oil control and/or are anti-aging.

I know a couple of you are really getting on my case about using anything else with the BB cream. The problem is that, while I love the BB cream, all of them are so very light in color. They don't make any for darker skintones, so unless I want to look washed-out all day, I have to use a foundation, or bronzer over the BB cream.

The point of a BB cream is that its a moisturizer, foundation, concealer, primer all in one. So it doesn't make sense to use a BB cream and put foundation over it. And if you even put a primer under the BB cream, then foundation over it, what's the point of the BB cream? Why are you using it?

I would treat the BB cream like a normal foundation and apply the primer first-- even though the formula is supposed to be better for your skin than other products, you want to prevent it from getting into your pores and causing breakouts or other problems.

No, please don't. This is advertise as a makeup product/ skincare. Although it states that it has a lot of benefits, but its never good to substitute a makeup product as part of daily skincare regimen.

I'd definitely recommend wearing a moisturizer, no matter what BB cream you use. The point of BB creams is not to cake it on your face, but to only use a little to even out your skin tone, really. But you can opt to use a moisturizer that is lighter than your normal moisturizer, because the BB cream does have some moisturizing benefits. It just won't be too effective in comparison to wearing moisturizer underneath.

I am NC20-NC25 and it matches my skin really well. I received a sample and first swatched it on my hand and was disappointed because it appeared so dark, however I was amazed how well it blended in and matched afterward...it's odd and almost chameleon like, so I decided to apply it to my face to see what happened. Sure enough, it matched. I think your best bet would to maybe go to Sephora and try it out and ask for a sample to take home because I could see how this may not work for someone with a really fair complexion. I never trust colors when initially applied at the store because in natural light they look completely different...I've had a lot of bad experiences lol.

I rub a small amount between my fingers first then rub on in small semi circles-circles (gently). I apply a second coat in a dot,patting way where i could use a bit more coverage,but usually do need concealer too,but less. I find i dont wind up with a mask-like coat this way. I put MUFE powder on my t zone as it is more oily and the rest of my face is more dry. With this BB being more moisturizing and having that "dewy" effect,i usually have to blot once or twice a day. But,I think the shine is not an oily looking shine..just makes your skin glow!

i tried the same "put a big blob on and rub it in" method the first time too...did NOT work for me. This product is not like normal moisturizers we've come to know. I found you have to dab/dot small amounts over your face and then slowly massage it in, almost like your giving yourself a facial massage. That was the only way I could apply this product. I think the key is in the massaging it in to warm it up. Once I figured this out, the coverage was great. Hope it works for you.

I was worried about the same thing because I too have pale olive skin. But the cream blends really well. It actually looks too light when you start putting it on but as you blend it in, it completely conforms to your skin tone.

Try Clinique BB cream in shade 01, for fair skin with pink undertones.

This product looks very dark when you squeeze it out of the tube - put I have porcelain skin, verty fair, and when I smooth it over my whole face it blends in very nicely. Don't be intimidated by the color of the product in concentration - get a sample at a sephora store and try it all over your face. I think you'll be surprised.

I don't know, this one is supposed to be neutral enough for all skin types, and I noticed that it is easy to get too much. Maybe you could try to use it more sparingly and see if that helps minimize the color. I think it will cover as well, and of course it will last longer.

I have very fair skin, and even though it looks dark coming out of the tube, once I apply it and spread it in, it is not too dark.

No, this is not a concealer and probably wouldn't give you the coverage you need if you've come from using BE.

I don't know if you've ever tried her products, but Mally Beauty has two great concealers that I love. I also love one from It Cosmetics. If just shopping at Sephora, I would recommend MUFE's Full Cover Concealer -- just be careful with shade selection, as it dries darker.

B.B. Cream is not a concealer but it somehow blends into your skin and does cover or blend or something so that the places I want to cover don't show. I like it better than any make-up I've ever used and to be honest, I've probably spent a fortune on make up over the years. I've tried several of the mineral make up powders, I like this much better. My other favorites have been Shiseido lifting Foundation, La Mer treatment fluid foundation, glo-minerals sheer tint base and the Clinic base for toning down red. I like B.B. Cream better than any of these.

Doesn't work like a concealer, but it greatly minimizes the need for one, which is great so you don't need as much makeup!

It Evens out skin tone but you need to use a CONCEALER in case you need it.

No, its not a concealer. At all. Given your needs, I wouldn't try the BB creams. Less coverage than a foundation.

I've been using this bb cream for a few months now and I love it! It isn't a concealer, but it does provide more coverage than any other tinted moisturizer/foundation I've ever used. It covers small spots, and dark circles under my eyes very well, for larger spots I still use a concealer, but only a little!
