Fresh Effects BB Cream by Olay

I received a voxbox from Influenter recently and one of the items included was this new products called "Fresh Effects" by Olay. If you're not sure what a bb cream, it usually stands for blemish balm or base. It promoted as an all in one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer , primer , foundation and sunblock.

Olay touts that to finish your daily beauty regimen with the all in one solution with 6 skin perfecting benefits:
  1. Refreshes skin instantly 
  2. Brightens for a radiant glow
  3. Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
  4. Hydrates for 24 hours
  5. Smoothes for softer feeling skin
  6. Protects against UV damage with SPF 15
I was so surprised when i opened it because it is " fair-to-light". I just knew that this was not going to work for my skin-tone as I am very dark. I was kind of leery but I said what the heck let me try it.  I have to say I am VERY surprised.  Not only did it soak in but it completely disappeared and YOU could not tell I had it on. Well spank me twice and call me harry!!!!! I have used it twice thus far but I like this very much!!  My sensitive skin didn't react and it gave me a slightly kissed look.

I  received all products complimentary from Influenster.

Interesting. So I wonder what the "dark" one would look like.

I've never heard of a blemish base before but it sounds useful. Do you still wear makeup on top of it or it supposed to give you the minimal makeup look?

I think you could put makeup on top if you wanted to but its touted to give you that minimal fresh face look.
