Completely disagree on the orange thing. But it does make you look dark if you use it alone without mixing it into a lighter foundation. That being said even when used by itself, it's not orange. I would not recommend if you are light or fair skinned.

Unless you are on the darker end of "medium", I would say this is too dark. For comparison, I wear Urban decay naked skin foundation in 8.0 and this BB cream in the bronze matches my skin nicely. I hope this helps you.

As long as your blending this well and not too pale I can't imagine this turning you orange. I'm of hispanic descent but I tend to be on the pale side. This cream really blends well with my skin even when I spray tan which I've never experienced before in a BB cream.

I'm latina and I have medium/tan/olive skin with neutral undertones. I think this is a perfect product for summer when I'm a little more tan. However if you blend it with your lotion or the original Boscia BB cream I think it adjusts nicely.

Boscia BB Cream has always had a Broad Spectrum UV filter through the inclusion of 6.4% Titanium Dioxide. This means it's able to filter a lot of UVA and UVB rays. The "new" thing about Boscia's creams is they now have one for very fair skin (Light) and one for darker skin tones (Bronze). The original is supposedly "medium" but it's definitely on the "light" side of Medium.

The new one is a lot darker than the original. It's too dark for me, but I received a sample and now I just blend a little in with the original and it gives a nice warm glow.

Cosmetically: The new 'broad spectrum' product has more of a bronze tone, and a little bit of shimmer/sheen. I think the idea is a sunkissed glow, but it might show up too brown on people with fair skin.

In terms of the 'broasd-spectrum' sunscreen: The original cream is not broad-spectrum, whereas this one technically is. Both include titanium dioxide, which protects against all UVB (burning) rays, but not all UVA (aging rays)--therefore, titanium dioxide alone isn't broad spectrum. The new formula also adds zinc oxide, which is broad spectrum. HOWEVER, the amount of zinc that they add is TINY by sunscreen standards; most 30 SPF zinc sunscreens have 5% to 20% zinc, and this has less than 1%. Even though it the ingredients are technically 'broad-spectrum,' I doubt that they will provide complete broad-spectrum protection.

Cheers!

It was terrible on my dry skin (seemed more drying) so I would actually think it would fare well for those who are on the oily side. Just a guess from my experience.

It's not bad I have combo skin w oily t zone and I like the Smashbox bb better to mattify. I've been using becca primer under it though if I'm feeling extra shiny, their mattifying primer is awesome.

I think it would be fine on oily T-zone skin. Im oily all over but not so much so on my cheeks. It seems to keep excess shine at bay. But I am acne prone so I just cant use this or any other foundation or powder on a daily basis. However, this is one of the few things that I can use even occasionally on my super oily skin. You only need a little though..it goes a long way.

I have the Boscia BB cream and it never blended well with my skin since I have olive undertones. This cream with the bronzer is more of a spring or summer version of the original. It blends well with my skin even when I spray tan and doesn't give me that weird orange look. If you are a person who normally benefits from a bronzer I would give it a try. I wear it instead of foundation most days and it's even lightweight enough to wear at the gym.

The B.B. Cream Bronze Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ provides a glowy, sun-kissed finish. The original BB Cream does the same, without the sun-kissed glow.

We don't have a trial size available for this product. Another great way to try new products is to visit your local Sephora store. At the store, a Cast Member can make a tester for you of any products that we carry. They can also answer questions for you and make recommendations for other products. To find a store near you, check out our store locator. Thanks!

Question
Best BB Cream for very sensitive, rosacea skin
Hi there,

I suffer from acne prone, sensitive, flaky skin with regular rosacea flare-ups. Almost everything I've ever used on my skin whether it's moisturizers or foundations, causes an allergic looking reaction. I am looking for something to tone down the red and even out my complextion that wont make my skin angry. I'm wondering about this Boscia one, or if there's another that you'd recommend for someone with my skin problems.

Because this product is bronze toned, unless you are a person of color that it matches your skin tone I can't see it evening out the redness. It would probably make it look worse. I would try Boscia's other BB cream.

I think this will work well for acne prone skin, as I have that same problem. However, I am not certain if it will irritate very sensitive skin since i dont suffer with that problem. It will definitely even out your skin, and moisturize it. It does have a bronze tint to it so if you are very fair, it may be a little too dark unless you mix it with another moisturizer or sunscreen. Hope that helps.
