I was told my several people to not use my hands to apply it. i was told it would spread bacteria from my hands to my face and that using my hands would also make it appear more streaky on my face. also you end up using more product then neccesary because it is also being rubbed into your hands as well as your face. i squeeze a small amount of product onto the back of my washed hands used a medium size fluffy brush and bring my brush to the edge of the product and just barely get some on the brush then i began sort of painting on the back of my hand to make sure products is covering brush fully then i apply it to my cheecks chin forehead nose last. i then seal it with HD makeup forever powder. it looks great on. also for a really natural flushed look try jose moran cheek gell blush it looks amazing

I basically treat it like it's a pre-foundation step; so I just make sure I put it everywhere on my face. You don't need like a big glob of it. Just put it where you want it.

That's correct! Just use your fingers to apply a thin layer all over your face :).

Product scent?
Does this product have a flowery scent? I've had to return so much make up because it smells all day like I have dunked my face into perfume and makes me sneeze so badly.

To me, this Shiseido BB Cream does have a light flowery scent. If you can visit a store, ask them to apply a small amount to the back of your hand. That's how I learned that I liked the coverage - I'm sure you could tell if the scent fades after application or causes an allergic reaction. BTW, I did not have a reaction although I've had reactions w/other foundations.

There is no scent to this product really. At least not any strong perfume smelling scent. Just smells like moisturizer to me.

Question
is this too thick for summer / humid weather?
I read some reviews that this has a creamy texture. Would any of you suggest this for oily skin or in humid climates?

Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks!

I wouldn't say it's pure creamy. It's a blend of a creamy/liquidy solution. I have normal to combination skin, but during the hot humid summer days, my skin gets pretty oily and I've been using this bb cream ever since it came out. I can definitely say that it's perfect for those hot humid days. It's light but offers buildable coverage. I wouldn't say it's a full coverage bb cream. It's more light to medium coverage. Since I don't like very thick foundations during the summer days, I wanted to go for something that was light and airy. This bb cream offers that! Hope this helps.

I have oily olive skin and sweat like crazy in humid weather or when having hot flashes, and this product holds up without feeling heavy. I don't like heavy foundations.

Yes. I have light skin and I find the medium too dull for me. It's a great product but Shiseido really needs to come out with a light shade for this.

I do not think the medium shade would work for you. I have a light medium complexion and the shade is obviously too dark for me. Hopefully, more shades will become available, as the bb cream does have a nice texture and goes on smoothly.

For BB creams or anything related to creams/foundations/etc, you're just going to have to try the product out and test it on your face/neck/back of the hand/etc for yourself. It's the sure fire way to find out what color is best suited for your skin tone. I know it's a hassle but you don't want to get the wrong color now do you? LOL. It's more of a hassle to get a product that is completely the wrong shade and then return it...etc...ugh..

UVA/UVB protection?
Does this product protect the skin from both UVA/UVB? I'm mainly using this to protect the areas around my eyes, rather than applying regular sunscreen.

Question
Does the BB cream match the tinted UV?
I'm shade 3 in the Shiseido Tinted UV protector and was just wondering if that would be a medium or a deep in the BB cream. I'm very yellow(yes, my skintone is yellow) and I barely fit shade 3 in the UV protector.
