How long did your tube last for?
I bought a full tube but I'm going to be out-of-the-country for 5-6 months and therefore, without access to Sephora or other beauty stores. I want to make sure I have enough to last me the whole time, or if I should invest in a 2nd tube as well.

That depends on how much you use. It didn't last me a long time. Maybe a month, and I mixed it with the Dior matte BB cream

Depends on how much you actually use (ex: a pump) and how often you would wear it. If it's going to be an everyday thing and a pump or less than a pump each usage I would invest in 2 tubes to be on the safe side.

It sounds like you need a foundation with a pink tone under base. The same thing happens to me. The lightest BB Creme in the original Dior line, that is NOT Hydra Dior, has a nice pink undertone with a matte finish. Ask for the lightest color.

I have light/fair skin too...I tried everything to get this product to look natural and not orange on me...nothing worked. I tried thinning it right down with serums and moisturisers...I tried applying it with sponges/brushes...they didnt work...I tried adding a very pale foundation underneath it which A. defeats the purpose of an one step product and B.made it light orange instead of dark orange. I would even apply it sparingly and wipe what I could off with a tissue, but that didn't work either. I honestly believe it's the colour and it just isn't for all skin tones...ESP.the light/fair ones... : (

It is light weight not a foundation. I apply it right after my mosturizer, and love the fact that it does not leave you a cakey feel or look. It is a very natural look yet it gives you great coverage!! You also don't need a lot to cover your entire face just a tiny little dot les than the size of a pea. : ]

It will depend on your undertones since this tends to lean towards a more yellow undertone. If you have a fair complexion with yellow undertones, then this will work. I hope this helps!

This is a bb cream so it comes in one shade but oxidizes to fit most skin tones---if you find that it is too light or dark for you there are asian bb creams that are comparable that come in a broader range of shades but you would have to buy them online--Missha bb creams are great for those who have very light or darker complexions

this product only comes in one shade, and it is very orange. I also find it to be very drying, so a moisturizer or primer is necessary before (which technically defeats the purpose)

Use with a moisturizer? How much is enough?
I recently purchased this BB cream and love the color and coverage (I am Asian, light/medium/olive complexion w/yellow undertone). I have combination skin, mainly oily in T-zone area. Should I use a moisturizer with the BB cream or does this have enough moisturizer already in it? How much is enough and what is the best way to apply it? Thanks!

This Dior Hydra BB Creme is more moisturizing than its original Dior BB Creme which is a matte. If you like the feel of the Hydra Creme by itself, a moisturizer isn't needed. It's a personal preference.

I use mine with a moisturizer because its dry in some areas but you don't need to. As for how much you need to you use, i only use very little like maybe a few drops but it all depends on how much coverage you want.

I would be hesitant to use a moisturizer in addition. For one thing, the formula is very thin, so extra lotion would dilute it. For another, you run the risk of making your skin too oily, which may make the rest of your makeup smear. I thought it was sufficiently moisturizing. My skin stayed soft all day with this cream. You can always save your main moisturizing work for the night time.

You need very little of this product, actually. Maybe the size of a dime for an entire facial application? It's thin and smooth enough that you should be able to just rub it in with your fingers. If you wanted to use a brush, you could dab it onto your face first, then use a kabuki brush in a circular motion to smooth out the finish. I found the finger application (like lotion) to work really well, though.

I have combination skin as well, and even with moisturizer it dried out my cheeks, so I'd say definitely wear moisturizer and maybe leave out your T-zone. For application, I have tried using fingers and foundation buffing brush. Both seemed to work just fine.

BB stands for "Blemish Balm" or "Beauty Balm". It is not brand specific. There are a ton of BB creams availalbe by many brands and they are not all the same. They vary in color, texture, etc. Experiment to find one you like.
