I originally went in to buy the powder foundation but left with this instead. It covered my acne scars and cystic acne quite well and BB7 matched me perfectly; it actually looked like I had mostly clear skin and it used to work well for my oily skin. The assistant applied it with the flocked beauty sponge so I left with that too. This product lasted about a good two weeks. After that it seemed to have oxidized in the tube and doesn't apply as well as it used to; my acne looks worse with this on. I can't use it anymore and it's only a pain to work with.
This product looks great on some of my face, but in my T-zone and areas where I have more fine lines and enlarged pored, this BB cream sinks into them and makes them more noticeable. I really like the color and feel, but unfortunately I a, disappointed in the way it looks on my face, especially since it was so pricey.
I am so sad. The BB cream looked great on however, after wearing it for 2 to 3 days I woke up with more than a dozen bright red pimples all over my face. I never break out so this was extremely surprising and frustrating. I love all Jane Irdale's products but I guess I can't do the BB cream!
Occasionally when I use this product, it comes out with black streaks in it. I assume it's the minerals, but it can be quite annoying. I love this product and it's definitely full coverage, but with the black streaks I can only give it 3 stars! :(
this stuff is awesome! Love the coverage! wish is was more budget friendly!
Don't get me wrong, I really like what I've seen so far with this BB cream. I've used it for almost a whole work week and it matches my skin really well, and doesn't feel too heavy. On the other hand, I felt like maybe I got a used bottle or something. It feels like a third of the tube is just air; a lot of air comes out before I get any cream. If I'm paying $50 for foundation, at least give me a whole tube!
It would be great if there was something between a BB3 and BB5. Thought it would happen when BB6 became available. There is a such a big difference between the two, please introduce a BB4!!
I've been using the BB Cream for five months. It did take me some time to get the application and amount just right for my skin. It can be very thick, so I squeeze a small amount in my palm and spray it with the Hydration Spray to thin it out a bit. I also use a sponge to even it out as opposed to my fingers, so it will absorb some of the product. All in all, I am very happy with this product and have added it to my daily routine.
It took me three tries to get the right color. BB5 and BB7 were too yellow. I was worried BB3 would be too light but it's perfect, adjusts to your face, sits on top of your skin and stays all day. I look so much better...took 10 years off my face!!!
I replaced my Estée Lauder foundation with Jane Iredale after a decade of use because I was looking for a cruelty-Free product. I couldn't be happier! I have been using this foundation for a month now, and have had several people at work, and even my husband comment on the difference in my skin. A coworker asked if I was getting facials. The coverage is perfect! My pores appear smaller. My skin is smoother, more even, and brighter! And the product stays on your face and doesn't rub off easily. My husband says I look 10 years younger. And the best part, Not one blemish since I started using it!!
I have to say, I have had an overall decent experience with the products causing minimal irritation. The problem that I experience is that being a brown-skinned woman, I have not had good luck finding a proper match in any of the shades. I ask that Jane Iredale's production team work towards serving the full range of make-up for ALL COMPLEXIONS. it is very frustrating to find makeup that you like and like with this bb cream, it look like you have painted talcum powder on your face. It is 2015, please acknowledge your brown-skinned clientele and respect our needs as well.
Love this product. I have Vitiligo and this BB cream is the only thing I have found that does a good job covering and blending the white patches to match the rest of my face. Especially the circle around my eyes. Thanks!
You may need to practice a couple times, but the payoff is huge. Flawless finish that doesn't look heavy. A nice glow that doesn't look too dewey wet, just right. My "go to."
Sometimes when I use this product, it comes out with black streaks in it. I assume it's the minerals, but it can definitely be annoying. The smell is lovely and it's definitely full coverage, but not cakey. The black streaks is the only reason I gave it 3 stars!
I'm pretty sure this bb cream has a decent coverage and the texture is good but I ordered the wrong color so I can only apply a little without looking too yellow. I ordered a bb7 but I think I might need a bb6 though I'm not sure if its better for a light to medium warm undertone skin. I've emailed them twice but haven't gotten any response. I would like to have a color exchange.
I love how healthy this product is for your skin. I have always had clear skin and never had to use makeup until I suddenly had an acne burst happen to me. I have been searching for something healthy for my skin to not cause more acne but at the same time cover it! This definitely is healthy and I would say has medium-to full coverage. The ONLY issue I have with it is that it makes my skin look even more oily than it is. I find myself having to reapply all the time and I feel that it leaves streaks and lines and I have to dab my face throughout the day. This breaks my heart because I LOVE these products and stand by the ingredients. I have to put a lot on to cover my acne marks. Can anyone help with the oiliness? I want full coverage but my skin to look LESS oily- Or do I have to move on to a different product :( Help!
This is one amazing makeup! Have used it for 3 years and will never stop! I have been a longtime wearer of mineral makeup, and have not found any better than JI products! The size of the tube for the price is extremely cost effective for as little product that it takes for perfect coverage. Set with light powder and a very light dusting of JI Moon Glow and your look is fresh and just the right glow! Take time to find the right color and it may be a blend of two....once you get the right color for your skin, I believe you will be very happy! Thank you JI for wonderful products, please never stop making or change this product! It is great!
i have pale acne prone combination skin. I was looking for a foundation that had good coverage and stay power without looking cakey or breaking me out. This bb cream is perfect. It even matches my very pale skin. Even though it was a little pricey it is one of the best foundations I have ever used!
I recently had the opportunity to test this product and I have to say I am hooked! Great coverage and feels amazing on your skin. I have very sensitive skin and this product did not irritate me at all. You need to keep in mind that very little of this product goes a long way. About pea size covers most of my face. Just be sure to moisturize your face properly and I strongly recommend you using the Smooth Affair primer with it. Besides the fact that I love this product I think what made my experience with jane iredale even more amazing is my personal shopper Katelyn Chaffee. She was great with answering all my questions and assisting me with my purchase. Safe to say I will be a returning customer.
I normally use Warm Silk in the PurePressed base and BB3 seemed to be a good match for me. You need very little product to get good coverage but it can be difficult to get it right because it is very easy to either use too much or let the product dry before you have it properly spread. I still would have continued to use it though, had it not given me issues with breakouts. Luckily Jane's customer service is awesome and I was able to return it. I will be sticking to the loose and pressed minerals for now.
JI - This BB cream is outstanding. The ingredients are good for your skin, safe and non-toxic and it is rated well on the EWG website. I don't currently have this cream as JI provided samples and BB7 is too light, BB9 too dark. I am a minimalist and not willing to buy both and mix every day. I was told you were possibly coming out with a BB8. I hope it's soon. I have been waiting for that as I always fall in between shades, always. It's very frustrating. Please come out with BB8 soon! Then I will never have to buy another foundation again.....:)
This BB cream is much too heavy and matte on its own. When I mix with moisturizer or primer, it is a little better but I still feel like it looks too yellow on my skin. Maybe I did not get the right color match, I am not sure. I am fair skinned and have yellow undertones. I believe my BB cream is a 5.
you guys were kind enough to send me samples , but you sent me 11bb & it look very light and pink on me but the formula was great just color didn't fit my skin.
I searched, and saw tons of YouTube tutorials, read articles, ingredient lists, apps, you have no idea! Looking for the perfect natural-ingredient non-toxic full-coverage foundation and ladies (or gay friends) I finally found it!!!! Glow Time is absolutely amazing. The best ingredients compared to other brands (Gabrielle, Zuzu, Juice Beauty, Rms) you name it! PROS: excellent coverage (I have big red acne scars in my cheeks), flawless finish, best ingredients (I tested several brands on the toxic checkup apps). I got the BB5 at first (my skin tone is neutral, light but not super light. I usually use other brand colors that say "ivory" or "medium light". Definitely was too light/yellow. I asked for samples to jane iredale's customer service and they gave me a personal shopper, Elena Noummano. She sent me BB3, BB7 and BB9. I ended up being a mix of BB3 (pinkish light) with BB7 (yellow, darker). And it's a perfect match! I don't even mind the price for both considering how long it took me to find the right foundation. CONS: The price obviously, but it's worth it. I do get shiny after 5+ hours of wearing the foundation at work. So powder will be needed! That's it! Give it a shot! I did and I'm very very happy, specially with Elena for being so wonderful and patient!
I switched to Jane Iredale after going through a terrible ordeal with contact dermatitis on around my eyes. This product provides full coverage that lasts all day. I have never used a foundation that works this well. You have to use very little, and spread quick though!
Ive been having such a hard tine with tattoo cover up for work. A friend suggested this and its amazing one layer covers the color and i just finish with a translucent finishing powder. Its the right skin tone and doesn't look like cover up make up it looks more natural. I tried every other "tattoo cover up" make up out there and it just doesn't work. I suggest this to everyone
I absolutely love this BB cream! ive never used a BB cream or foundation or any make up at all, until recently I started to get acne and it left me dark scars. I am so grateful to have come across this make up brand! it's light and glowy and a little goes a LONG WAY. It covers up everything with just a minimal amount (no need to cake it on) and I've noticed it doesn't make me break out and reduces the appearance of all of my flaws! The customer service is stupendous! The shipment is fast and the packaging is adorable. Over all the BEST shopping experience! Going to tell all of my friends and family! Thank you Iredale team! XOXO
I've tried several sort-of natural BB creams, but JI's is the first to do what I've heard BB creams are supposed to do. This product acts as a tinted moisturizer/ medium coverage foundation and a concealer for the under eye area and blemishes...all while making skin clearer, brighter, and healthier. I'm very fair with neutral undertones, and BB1 was a perfect match for my face. When I first put it on, it looks geisha-pale, but when I blend it in, it changes to my natural color. I apply it by tapping spots from my fingertips all over, then blending the spots together. Then I take a little extra & apply it to the circles under my eyes, around my nose (don't know why it gets red there!), and any little blemish marks. [This might sound weird, but for really stubborn areas that need more coverage, I blend some BB cream with JI's Amazing Base (in Ivory). When it reaches a clay-ish consistency, I dab & blend it on those spots. This is only for my yearly horrible breakout...without what I've just described on my face, I wouldn't want to leave the house.] When my skin is in its usual, clear, combination, 38-year-old state, this BB cream feels non-greasy, and not heavy. It's a slightly dewy finish, like regular skin with a bit of a glow. I've gotten so many compliments on my skin, and guesses at my age that thrill me. Can you tell I love this stuff? There are only two minor cons--to be honest in my review. It's pricey, but a little goes a fairly long way. Second, I have to keep a watch out for creasing under my eyes--a mirror check every few hours. However, these are the fewest issues I've ever had with a BB cream, tinted moisturizer, or foundation--liquid or powder. I forgot to mention the importance of natural & beneficial ingredients. Short version: this is HG for me! Hope this review helps. :)
I normally use amazing base or pure pressed and love both! I tried Glow time for more coverage , but did not like it at all. It sank into every small line and really showed in my tzone pores. It seems it would be best for someone with smoother skin and small pores. I couldn't wait to take it off. I did read in the reviews to use just a small amount of product, but this did not help. I will stick with the powders!
I could never find a foundation that was perfect until Glow Time. I wear it everyday. I like the amount of coverage over a new scar from a fall a few months old. Plus, it is sheer enough for my freckles to peek out.
I love the way this product feels. I've worn liquid minerals and powder for years in warm silk. I just bought the bb cream today. My esthetician recommended BB7 and I think it may be to dark. What color do you recommend for someone who normally wears warm silk?
I am in love with BB3 right now. I have fair, dry, sensitive skin and this JI is the first makeup that doesn't bother my skin. Every other brand has dried my skin out and caused rashes. This BB cream is so moisturizing and soothing to my skin. My skin is actually softer when I remove this cream at night. A little bit goes along way. However, I tried BB1 first. I have pale yellow undertones. BB1 went on neutral, but oxidized into an awful dark mushroomy gray color. I didn't look like a vampire, but like a gray zombie. Weird. BB3 seemed a little too dark when I swatched it on my arm, but I decided to try it instead. I am so glad I did. It is great! It has more healthy looking peachy yellow tones. It settles well and the nice color lasts, no strange oxidation. It is so hard to find lighter foundations. I am in love with BB3.
loved the color & coverage at first. then a month after using it my pores around my t-zone became very congested and enlarged. i use a good cleanser each night to remove make-up and a toner in the am. not sure what else i can do except stop using it. of course, its been more than 14 days so i can't take it back to exchange for another item of janes to try :( any recommendations??
I absolutely love this foundation/BB Cream. I am 49 years old and it gives me a healthy glow with full coverage without looking "made-up". Compared to my old liquid foundation this product took some getting used to. Tiny amount does the job making it worth the money. Excellent coverage that looks like my skin.
This BB Cream really turned out to be better than I expected! The coverage is great, and the are enough shades to choose for those with fair or light skin. My skin looks flawless with this foundation. All the redness from acne blemish scars are covered well. My one complaint is that there's too much yellow! Perhaps that's what's covering my acne scars.
I bought this on a whim while out shopping and it was the best money I have ever spent. I bought it in the summer, so BB5 was my shade. It was a little dark for me in the winter so I went ahead and bought the BB3 and that color was perfect as well. I can mix the colors or use them individually. They have lasted me 9 months so far. I am so impressed with the flawless results this leaves on my skin. I feel like I'm glowing, and my face has never looked or felt better. I get so many compliments on my skin and I have gotten so many people hooked on this product. I'm in love with Jane Iredale and will never use anything else! You get what you pay for!
I am 60 and have good skin due to years of care, chemical peels, etc. I was excited when I got a sample of this but I felt like is was putting spackle on my face. Nice idea but I had to wash it off right away as I looked so chalky.
Full coverage. BB Cream. What? It's true! It's a full coverage BB Cream that makes my skin look absolutely flawless. I don't count on this for my only SPF - I have incredibly fair skin - but it's nice to know that there's a bit of extra protection here. Alone, this has a wonderful glowing (but not shimmery! There's no sparkle here) finish but if you set it with the Pure Pressed powder, you get a wonderful natural finish with a lit-from-within look. Stunning, every time. For my fair-skinned sisters: I've had so much trouble over the years finding a foundation match. In fact, I swatched 47 foundations - the palest in nearly every high-end line available - before finding this one. This foundation has a great shade range for the very pale BB1 (my shade) can handle folks who usually need to mix with a white base to get a match and you can reach up into BB3 for mixing shades if you need something between the two - a truly custom match. Even with the very pale, there is no ghostly effect to this foundation, which is fairly rare for something with neutral undertones. I hope they continue making this product for a long time to come, it's become my holy grail foundation product!
I've used the pressed powder for years, but recently thought about trying the BB Cream. Wow! So glad I did, it's amazing, and provides the full coverage I like while looking smooth, bare and flawless. It's really great stuff! I wasn't sure on which color to go for. I'm biracial with a deep olive complexion and went for the BB7. It's a great match. I have very oily skin, and midway through my day I start to shine through, so I dab the pressed powder on to get ride of the shine. I love the Combination! Thanks!!
Love Glow Time but my last purchase leaves black streaks. What is this? I have tried to exchange it from where I bought it but they refuse as I have used three quarters of the tube. A bit too expensive for this to happen really.
I use the BB Cream as a sunscreen when I go swimming or play soccer, as it's water resistant and seems to be one of the only sunblocks I've ever used that doesn't come off when I sweat or make me break out. I'm not sure I've got the right colour though, as it often looks like I'm wearing fake tan when I put it on. I do put it on quite thick which I'm probably not supposed to. Looking forward to the new shades coming out as think the 6 will suit me best (so I'm told)!!
Honestly what is there not to love about this product? I have oily skin, acne, and my face likes to turn a pink pigment. I put the BB cream on in the morning and my face looks natural all day long! I don't have any pigmentation all day long, and I can even wear it through the night without breaking out. In fact I've noticed that my face doesn't break out at all since switching to Jane Iredale makeup.
This BB cream is so perfectly named! I have tan/warm tan Indian skin and BB9 is a great match. The color goes on a tad light, but give it an hour and it has morphed into the perfect shade. My skin looks fresh, healthy, and radiant, but not dewy. It doesn't look like makeup AT ALL. The key is to apply a smaller than pea-sized amount on your face in little dots after you've moisturized well, distributing it quickly after you put the dots. I am glad I waited to review this product. Had I reviewed it a month ago, I would have explained how sad I was that this product made my skin breakout and blamed it on the physical sunscreen for being thick and greasy. And I wouldn't have been entirely wrong- but I think the problem was that I wasn't cleansing my face properly to get it off every night! I realized that if the product wouldn't come off my hands by washing with hand soap, how was it going to come off my face with my foamy face wash? Duh. Now, every night I use a sensitive skin face wipe before washing my face with an oil-based cleanser. It seems counter-intuitive considering that this product gave me pimples before. It made all the difference in the world. Now my skin looks great during the day and is not irritated at all. So glad this worked out!
After trying a sample from Soft Surroundings for several weeks, purchased this amazing product. I'm on a budget and therefore very picky about what I spend my money on.I originally bought the mineral starter kit but didn't like how tight my face felt. Glow Time gives me the coverage I need and I feel like it also moisturizes my skin! I live in CO and am almost 57 years old. I should also say my skin can be sensitive and break out. Not with this! Less is more with this product. A tiny sample lasted me 3 weeks wearing it every day. Very pleased.
This BB cream is a full coverage foundation and it feels great on the skin. I am excited to have finally found a product with full coverage and good for you ingredients. Unfortunately, the shade was all wrong, but when I contacted a personal shopper they assisted me with great care. Alicia, a personal shopper, is someone I will continue to talk about with my friends because I was genuinely shocked by her professionalism. I am blown away by the customer service this company provides and for that I will NEVER spend my money else where.
I love Jane products. I use the powder at times and love my bronzer. Just started using bb cream about a week and a half ago and my skin looks great but I am now getting bumps everywhere. I have them on my cheeks near my eyes and my chin is extremely congested. This is not like my skin at all. Was hoping it was just the weather but my skin changed when I changed to this product. How long does it take to clear up skin from product breakouts???? Is this common with this product??
I just bought this line and went over my budget. I bought primer,brushes, powder and the bb3. I like the BB3 cream but I was sold wrong color. Its to white on my face. I don't have problems with the product but the color is all wrong. I had to mix it with left over liquid makeup I have to change the color. I can't afford to spend any more and I can't get it exchanged so I can at least blend two of the same products. Can you send me the next darker shade to mix it with? Thank You I can't wait to see if I can get the color I need.
I was introduced to these products in a salon makeover. The consultant was in a hurry and didn't write down BB number. I love the primer and like the pressed powder, but BB5 is too yellow. This isn't the number she used during the makeover. This foundation is expensive, but I am willing to pay, but not with a color that makes my skin look yellow.
I love not feeling guilty wearing a foundation all day. It goes on smoothly with a moisturized face. Great for coverage and it gives an even appearance. I also feel like my skin is looking better. Love the smell too. Would order again!
LOVE IT! Perfect balance for me, not too much coverage, but enough to not feel naked! (I do switch to the Dream Tint in the summer when I don't feel like I need as much). Also, I do like to go over it with a powder or bronzer to prevent any oily feel later in the day. I am currently using BB3, might try to go a shade darker as I feel like Snow White, the fairest of them all at times. Great product :)
I have used your products for years, I have mature, dry skin and was looking for a full coverage, moisturizing (hence the word "glow")BB / foundation. I bought it, worst product I have used in my life. Hard to apply, thick, chalky, sank into my lines. I use drugstore BB creams, your cream blush and mineral powder. Wanted something to use in the winter because the powder doesn't work as well. Awful, and, a waste of $48.
I use 3 of the shades to give light coverage year around, and to highlight. This foundation is perfection. Over the years, my skin has dried some. This foundation keeps my skin moisturized and very natural looking. It is highly pigmented; a little goes a long way. After application with a foundation brush and a sponge, I blot lightly and apply a little of the pure pressed mineral foundation just in the T zone area, and I am good to go for hours.
As someone who has extremely sensitive skin and has struggled with acne for the better part of a decade this product has been a lifesaver. The only reason it gets four stars instead of five is the finish. I know it's called Glow Time but, by mid day my face looks like an oil slick! I've tried using the Absence primer and I set it with Amazing Base loose powder. My skin does not feel oily to the touch either, I'm just shiny as can be. I have to wash it all of and reapply in the afternoon. Can you JI beauty gurus offer some tips?
I am sorry to say how disappointed I am with this product. I have been happy with Jane's products in the past, and had high hopes for Glow Time. I spoke with the rep about what I was looking for -a product that would create a natural look, and would not be to heavy. I have tried different application techniques, including mixing with my moisturizer to try to improve the results. I also went back to where I purchased and a different rep walked me through application tips. Final outcome- product still feels heavy and mask-like.
I have red hair and a fair complexion and due to some medications I take I have some blotchiness of the skin. This BB cream is great - it gives the perfect coverage and feels so light on the skin. I pair it with the pressed powder and the look is wonderful. I am so glad I got the sample as that is what sold me on the product. The shade I use is BB5. I have used a full coverage cream makeup from another line previously, but it turned to a strange color after an hour or so - Jane's BB Cream maintains the same color throughout. I would highly recommend this product. So glad this was added to the line of products.
I bought the BB cream to hide a surgical scar. I love the coverage, the glow, and how soft my skin feels. However, I am breaking out in pimples under my chin and on my neck. Also, I would love a shade between 5 and 7. Totally bummed as I spent boku bucks on this stuff!
I can't recommend this enough! I have mild adult acne and have struggled for years to find something that will cover my blemishes without clogging my pores. This is by far the best thing I've found. I thought that as it's a BB cream it might not have great coverage, but it covers my spots perfectly! I apply it all over with my fingers, and then tap a little over problem patches - my skin looks flawless. Moreover, it feels incredibly soothing, and has actually improved my skin, which is amazing as most foundations/concealers/BB creams make me break out. My skin is much clearer and softer. On top of all this, I look healthy and glowing - I'm actually really tired and overworked at the moment but everyone is saying how well I look! It's pricey, but you only need a tiny bit so I think it'll last for a really long time. Anyway it's totally worth it, I'd pay twice as much for such beautiful skin! Buy it right now!
Overpriced. This product is thick and to me, feels kind of greasy. I apply it with my fingertips and it just kind of smears. The bright side is that a little does go a long way. I would not say that it is full-coverage. There are definitely much better foundations out there. Unimpressed.
This is the only foundation I will ever need! Glowing, dewy skin is possible. Application is key, as very little product is needed for coverage. I tap tiny dots area by area and continue patting until it disappears into my skin, leaving a diffused, glowing finish that looks like I have nothing on. This is the real deal, if you pay attention to how you apply! It might sound like too much effort but it's actual quite quick and easy. Nothing else gives me these results. Don't use too much and don't try to smear across your skin~ this is a different product with an amazingly different result. Love beyond words! Now I'm excited to try the primer.
Hi! I have recently bought Jane Iredale's powder sunscreen which is literally the only sunscreen I have ever tried that doesn't give me acne. I love that it is SPF 30. I'd really like to be able to use this BB cream, it looks beautiful, but using a pea size amount of SPF 25 isn't enough for me. Can I use both? Right now I am using moisturizer (I have dry skin), then I apply the powder sunscreen. I just ordered the primer, so I will start using 1) moisturizer 2) primer 3) powder sunscreen (so it sticks) In that order. If I order the BB cream, in what order should I apply it, especially if I want it to a) stick, b) go with the sunscreen and c) achieve that beautiful dewey finish that they show in the videos? Thanks!
This cream is amazing, but we need a "BB2" that is NEUTRAL! The BB1 is cool (pink), and the BB3 is warm (yellow), and I'm smack-dab in the middle. To get my true color, I mix my BB1 with "Cover FX N10 " (sorry Jane). I have adult acne and for over a year was on the hunt for something that covered well enough but wasn't cakey, or made my skin oily. FINALLY, I found this Full Coverage Mineral BB cream and my skin looks dewey and supple after applied. I use a small foundation brush to apply in downward strokes. A little goes a LONG way. I then dab the areas with my index finger to remove any excess coverage.
This BB cream is gentle, soothing, and creamy! I have tried almost every BB cream in Sephora but could not find anything that soothes my sensitive rosacea skin, yet didn't look like a foundation mask. The coverage of this BB is medium (read the directions and use a teeny amount!)and glowy. I love, love love this BB cream with Amazing Base over it or just alone.
I have been using Glow Time and really enjoy the coverage and lightness of the product However, when using bb5, the product is too light. When using bb7, the color is too dark. Both are too yellow. Do you have a good compromise?
I love the Mineral BB cream..Having very dry skin, scars and blemishes, along with large pores and redness, guess about all the bad you could have. Of course old age also..I am so thrilled to finally Have a foundation that covers and leaves my face with a nice glow not dry looking and is kind to my face..I do use a concealer and found today that I used my night cream letting it dry then Smooth Affair before applying the BB ..it looks great..I ordered the 7 it is a little light so I will be ordering the 9.. With that said I used a bronzer with the 7 it worked fine ..I will mix the 2 shades together...I was worried about the product having yellow tones as I have to use a foundation with pink...it is not a problem if it were I would be sending it back for I look horrible with a foundation that has the yellow..I love the BB thanks Jane your the best..I think you have to use good skin care products on your face also..I use Just Natural Organic.. Try the Smooth Affair it's fabulous.. I used my fingers to apply BB foundation a little goes a long way...if you find it's not applying well for you then after you can use some smooth affair just pat it on over the BB..let it set and use the hydration spray..I place a small amount of the smooth affair on my palms rubbing it onto my fingers then just use my whole hand to pat my face works like a charm.. Unissa
I purchased the BB5 at my local spa, and though I was color tested, it was too light, so I came online and read the reviews about the shades. Many have issue with the difference between 5 and 7, but I took my chances and ordered the 7. Just got it, and it's the perfect shade! I'm keeping the 5, as I know I get a lot paler during the winter months, and I figure it'll be perfect for then. As for all the talk about huge differences between shades, yes, 7 is darker (not yellower), but it's not a drastic difference. It's just enough :) I love the feel of the cream, and that you don't need very much of it at all to cover your entire face. It gives my skin a nice glow and makes it very soft. I have noticed its a lot easier to apply right after I put on moisturizer, but that's not a big deal, I always put it on before my bb cream :) love that I'm putting on make up that truly benefits my skin :)
Ive always had a very difficult time with my complexion and this is the first foundation/BB cream that I have used that actually makes my complexion look fabulous. More specifically, it makes me look naturally beautiful. People actually question if I am even wearing anything on my skin because the coverage is so flawless. An additional perk is that it covers fully with such a minimal amount.
My daughter is a physician and carries JI in her office. She sent me this cream in bb7.At first I was apprehensive but gave it a try. I watched the video and it was perfect. I am hispanic and the color is alittle too light but the b8 is too dark. But if you use a small amount like they say...it works great and stays all day. Now I just use the moonglow over this instead of powder. I find that I get a little oily around my nose but I just use powder. You have to use a very small amount for the whole face!
This lasts much longer on my combination skin than the PurePressed base, and provides more coverage/oil control than the Liquid Minerals. A rep at a Nordstrom spa showed me the trick: apply very LITTLE over well-moisturized skin to get medium coverage with no cakiness. I apply over a separate sunscreen + primer and set with loose powder. I still blot and powder my T-zone, but not that often. After 8 hours, I apply Beyond Matte all over + more blush to maintain a polished look. Could you make a BB4? I'm in between shades and must apply BB3 to neck and chest to get a perfect match.
I was a little nervous when I got this because it was such high coverage but when I applied it with my beauty blender it was perfect very natural and glowing. The only problem is the color 5 is extremely light and almost makes my face look white, wish I had gotten number 7 but when I take it off at night my skin feel softer than before I put it on which I find to be pretty amazing since no other product I've tried has done that.
This product is dense so very little needed. Ask for help with coloring that is key. I used both BB5 matches my face perfect and BB7 for summer look. I'm in my forties any people at work think I've had work done to my face cause I look so much better now.
It is hard to find good coverage foundations from the line of more natural, cruelty free and better cosmetics. I bought this for the ingredients and the good reviews. A pea sized amount covers the WHOLE face. Including RED acne. The BB5 is DEAD ON perfect for my light yellow based, even skin tone. It has no pink, which is great! It doesn't make you look like you're suffering from a liver disease, either. With the smooth affair, it lasts THE WHOLE DAY, and with some finishing powder you can eliminate any dewyness that might bother you. Mixed with a water based moisturiser (or even face oil, like jojoba oil) you can make it lighter and easier to blend. It also comes in a 50ml tube you can squeeze, you need so little of it and can use every single drop of it so I think this really is a bang for your buck!!! I will buy this for the rest of my life provided it is available. Jane, NEVER stop making this, even though BB creams might go out of fashion!!!!! :)
I really love the finish with this. I think that rather than being full coverage, it's more of a buildable coverage and that's great! Feels nice on and stays all day. I'm out riding behind my husband on our motorcycle in all types of weather, and BB Cream always looks nice and unlike other lines of foundation, this stays put until I remove it!
This product would be great, but mine must have a defect. Every other time I use the BB cream, I'm smearing some unidentifiable black streaks across my face. At first I thought it was me or something on my hand, but it only happens when I'm using this product. I like it so much that I try to work around it, but I want to know what this black grease-like substance is in my make-up. Too expensive for the mystery and inconvenience...
I was introduced to product at the MedSpa that I visit. I love everything about it, texture, ease of application (I use a primer beneath) and overall look. I would like to purchase more on line but haven't been able to locate the name of the color on the tube. Can you please let me know where I would find it so I can reorder? Thank you!
What a beautiful product! So easy to apply ~ smooth and nearly flawless ~ and, while I've never aspired to look younger than I am (45), I'm always willing to look better! This BB cream leaves my skin look ing moisturized, soft and radiant. (Coming from someone who has dry, flaky, sensitive skin, that's saying a lot!) As with all JI cosmetics a little goes a long way and this cream stayed on all day ~ totally worth the price! I wasn't sure what color to choose and vascillated between the BB5 and the BB7. I ended up ordering both because I wear Medium in the Dream Tint tinted moisturizer which appeared to be a bit darker than the BB5 and a bit lighter than the BB7. I'm so glad I did! I mixed the two shades and ended up with the perfect combination! Thank you JI!
Received a sample from my plastic surgeon's office after a Botox treatment. Was in a hurry to get somewhere, decided to use this product, literally ran out the door without paying that much attention, and only when I came home, happened to look in the mirror on my wall when walking past, and IT STOPPED ME! I was AMAZED at how pretty my skin looked - I am almost 56 years old, and quite frankly, I never had this experience with a foundation - if the coverage was full, it looked too thick and made up, yet tinted moisturizers did not cover enough. This is worth every penny - I did lightly brush a translucent mineral powder over it, but HOURS LATER to still have this satin-y and dewy finish? WOW! Great job!
I know there have been a few unhappy reviews over this product and I wanted to submit my own review of this product. I have tried alot of BB creams out there. Perhaps I got sweept away in the fanfare of the BB cream craze. I wanted a foundation that was good for my skin and covered some mild rosacea. I didn't find a BB cream that I was in love with. When Jane came out with her own, I was able to get a sample of it and gave it a whirl. At first I thought it was really thick and heavy. I left it on my skin thinking my skin wasn't going to like the heaviness and my drier parts would respond negatively. I really have to wear it throughout the day to see the real affects. Within just a short few minutes it had melted into my skin and became like a second skin. And the glow... wow... the glow. My skin just looked bright and natural. And yes like other reviews stated, you only need a small amount. I put dots of the product on my forehead, cheeks, and chin. I also use my fingers and foundation brush to apply. I have also found that having a great moisturizer underneath makes a difference. I also wear the "Smooth Affair" which I also love. A little product goes a long way. It stays on all day and my skin looks even better when I take it off. Jane's products are skincare makeup. I love this product and I hope Jane continues to make it for the people who love it and can't live without it.
I am a big Jane Iredale fan and I was very hopefull about this product, but I've found that it is very difficult to apply. I've tried several different ways and it's still disappointing, even when using a small amount (a little goes a long way). Also about four hours after applying it tends to settle in my smile lines, and look almost blotchy. I do however like the coverage and how well it conceals inperfections.
The colors of this BB cream run very light. I have fair skin with redness and I purchased BB5. BB3 could also work, but has less yellow in it. I didn't like this product at first since it clung to dry spots and looked cakey. Your skin needs to be well exfoliated to have this look good. I found that 2 very smal dots patted onto my skin and than buffed gently with a brush is the best way to apply this product. Than this product looks how it is described and not cakey at all. I was looking for something I could apply quickly even without a mirror, however this is not it. But once I learned how to apply it I think it looks nice.
I am not really one to "jump on the bandwagon" when it comes to trends, but I am a Jane Iredale fan and when they came out with a BB cream I decided to try it as just using my powder in the hot months of summer wasn't cutting it anymore. All I can say is wow. It takes a VERY small amount for coverage and with just a little dusting of powder on top you have a flawless finish that looks incredibly natural and not at all cakey. I also love that it doubles as a sunscreen. I tried it with the primer and found that it actually works better for my skin without the primer. This is in my opinion one of the best products out there. Give it a try!!
Hi, I would like to purchase "Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream", but there are BB1 BB3 BB5 BB7 BB9 and BB11. I have yellow skin tone but I prefer lighter color. Can you advise which color is best for me or send me some samples so I can try it out? Thanks!
I bought this BB cream at the beginning of 2013 in a hunt for the perfect BB cream. I had tried so many but thought I should try just one more--the Glow Time BB Cream. I absolutely love this products and it's versatility. It's amazing on its own, or if I'm wanting a bit lighter coverage, I mix equal parts with my moisturizer or SPF--it's just a lovely product! But the problem is, my mom sneakily confiscated mine after I let her try it! Now we're both absolutely hooked. Thank you for such a nice product that introduced me (and my family) to your amazing line of makeup!
I don't write reviews but this stuff is excellent. It's extremely concentrated as advertised so only a tiny amount is necessary. I've used all Jane Iredale's foundations and I like this the best. I'm mid-50's, have aging, acne-prone(still!), oily, dehydrated(go figure),large-pored skin and this addresses all my issues. It gives the coverage I need without looking caked on. I love the liquid mineral foundation but this has sunscreen and offers more coverage which is a better fit for daily use. I mix it with the primer on my hand allowing sheerer coverage and easier application and buff it out with a brush in those areas that get too much product. It does have a "glowy" finish which I avoid having oily skin so I touch up with a light finishing powder throughout the day making it slightly more matte and lasting. Great product, can't recommend too highly. The only reason I gave it a 4 is that there are two few shades.
This bb cream is what gave me confidence to wear makeup again. I had lost faith in makeup. I am fairly pale and I am able to wear bb1,bb3,and bb5. It gives me a glow and covers so well. I can wear it alone but when applied over the glow time primer it is beyond what I ever expected. its worth every penny. I love the smell and the experience of putting this on is something I look forward to doing each and everyday. Thanks, Jane Iredale
I am 47 and have tried so many foundation products you would not believe. I have melasma and have been looking for something that will give me a natural look and also ample coverage for my brown spots. The product fits the bill perfectly. A little product goes a long way and for a full coverage product you do not look too cakey after application (but again don't use too much!) It will give you a dewy and bright finish. I also love Jane Iredale products because they are all natural. Thanks Jane!
I recently purchased the CC cream in BB7. I have used the color Latte in the past, and the BB7 is what I was told was a good match where I purchased it. The BB7 is too light and would like to know what you would consider the best match to the Latte in the BB cream. Thank you! I am disappointed because I dont believe I am going to be able to exchange it after just one use.
Hi. I have only used Glow Time in BB3 once as I purchased the wrong shade. It is a shade too light and quite pink (BB3) for my skin tone. I really want to be able to use this product. The problem is, as I live in Japan and so I could not buy this cream from your website. The buyer I purchased it from is not able to exchange it. Are you able to help, please?
I usually like Jane Iredale's products, but not this one. If I could have given it no stars I would have. Like a couple other reviewers, I felt the same way about the shades and that it felt like I was putting concrete on my face. It didn't go on smooth at all and I WAS using my fingers. It's way too thick. I've used other BB creams, but this is by far the worst. Even with the high price, I got rid of it.
I love the makeup but my local Nordstrom didn't have the product to color match me. JI.com sent me a sample of BB7 but it is WAY too pink/dark for me. I don't have the time or patience to try to find a local store that can color match me. Is there a sample kit that can be sent? I normally wear Golden Glow in winter, Latte in summer.
This is the first review I've ever done, but felt I had to write one to express my extreme disappointment with this product. I purchased it on 5 April in England, UK, really excited to try it as it hasn't been out long in the UK, and applied it exactly as in the video, (after cleansing and moisturising). It was very thick - didn't spread so VERY difficult to blend and it clung to all the pores and emphasised them! So, I then tried it with a primer first then small dabs of Glow Time on top, but it made no difference to the overall effect. The result was awful. I found the product drying and the overall effect on me was aging. It wasn't luminous or velvety at all. I put some Purepressed base on top - an amazing product - but I just looked old and caked with make-up. Couldn't wait to remove it all. A complete waste of money. I love the fact that the products are free of parabens etc and have been using Purepressed base for several years, but this BB Cream is a disappointment to say the least.
I have to thank Jane Iredale for this bb cream. There are many of us out here that adore this formulation and for good reason. The description given for this bb cream is accurate so it should be hard to be disappointed when getting it. I think the problem is that society is so used to things that are bad for our skin that when someone brings us something good for us it goes unappreciated. If you are not getting optimal results it may be because of the extra nasty stuff that your using on your face. I'm replacing all my other products with Jane Iredale ones. I know this makeup isn't cheap but at the same time you aren't supposed to use a lot and it will last a very long time. I suffer from very dark circles, dark spots, dry patchy skin, oily t zone, and most makeups make me look older than i am. This makeup is my Holly Grail. I only hope that I can buy this product for the rest of my life. I love the luminous healthy look it gives my skin and I have confidence in myself. Thank you
I unknowingly bought this product in the wrong color and accidentally bought two tubes. So now I am stuck with a product that clogs the pores on my nose and is to dark and cannot return the unused product! How do you choose the correct color online? Can I return the products? I want to try the CC cream but am afraid and very apprehensive... will be stuck with another expensive product that may or may not be the correct color.
My cousin used this on my face recently and I was amazed how great it was. I have large bleach looking spots on my face and I am wondering if this is used as a concealer or after a concealer is used? I don't used make-up so I'm very clueless. Any input would be great, many thanks
I received a small sample where get facials and love it! The only problem was that the bb7 gave me a yellow tone. I am relatively lighter tone with a red undertones. I normally have to buy lighter makeup. I would like to purchase but don't know what to buy. Need help!
This bb cream is the best and one of the first purchases I made from the line and it's improved my whole face. It's definitely full coverage and it's supposed to be that way. It's not your drug store bb cream. This stuff can be layered up to cover better than a concealer. A tip though if you layer it to cover a lot and it feels heavy or you feel a little bit Caky just get the jane iredale d2o hydrating spray. It combats that Caky look and plumps wrinkles. Its for setting makeup and does work for that too. I have never actually looked caky using this though. i have trouble with every foundation in the past making me look older but this stuff never does that. My skin no longer goes through bad breakouts and the more I wear this the more my skin improves. It's never looked so good. I feel guilty putting other makeup on my face when I'm wearing this because I know it's bad and its reversing all the progress I've made so far. Xoxo
At first I really loved this. My hubby loved it. When I tried it at the shop with the help of makeup artist. But now I find it is pretty difficult to wear it naturally. I tried it with my finger, foundation brush. But it gave me unnatural look. I am full time mom and I thought this simple one would help me a lot. But it turned out wrong. It is pretty expensive and hard to get the natural look. Maybe I should buy your powder foundation, not this one. I regret my choice now. But the color no.7 is perfect for my californian sunkissed tone. Oh I love your non animal test policy, too.
I love this cream. I first purchased BB5 but it was too light for me so now I use BB7 and sometimes mix the two. I can't believe how great it looks on my skin. My skin looks like it is glowing, I feel that the recommended amount is too much, and I need very little.
My face is atrocious--acne, scarring, t-zone...it goes on and on. I need full coverage, but unfortunately most full coverage foundations have ingredients that make my acne worse. This stuff is a life saver! My acne has reduced drastically since I switched over to this. The coverage is just as flawless as the studio makeup I was using prior, plus it gives me a nice subtle glow.
I agree with some of the reviews that thus formula is thick/ concentrated and somewhat drying, but if it is used/mixed with the JI primer, it is very manageable and goes on smoothly. The primer makes a big difference with the ease of use if this product! The primer also allows very little of the BB cream needing to be used. I almost used more primer than BB cream. The primer helps diminish pores. So I would recommend the primer as a necessity when buying the BB cream .
I recently bought the bb cream and am so disappointed with it. I got this in bb 9 as bb 11 was way too dark for me. But it just makes me look totally grey :( such a waste of money
Through days of trial and error with the application I finally understand how this works. At first I thought omg so thick, Cakey, gross! Everyday I tried a little less, then used literally a pea sized amount for whole and used a brush to blend it in, finally the look was achieved. My sun spots are covered ( which was my goal), and no breakouts (knock on wood). So you really need patience with this product but it delivers what it advertises, full coverage and glow.
I bought this bb cream and have been using it for over a week and at first I loved it but now I notice that my face looks REALLY shiny a couple of hours after applying it. I can't figure out why... I have replaced my morning moisturizer with this so I am not using anything underneath and the only thing that I am using over it is bronzing powder. Can you recommend what I should do?
Glow time foundation does just that...makes your skin glow! I've had several people compliment my skin since I started wearing it and that never happened before. It covers flaws and smooths your complexion beautifully. I have light medium complexion and found that if I mix BB5 and little BB7, it's the perfect shade. Also, I've found that application is easy if I dot it on my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin and then use the blending brush to spread it out. Very pleased with this product - - especially since it has sunscreen. Great job, JI!
I purchased this BB cream at a local spa where the girl working there color matched me. The lighting was poor and she only put it on a small portion of my face. When I applied it at home, it was too light on my skin. The spa does not allow returns or exchanges. Ugh! Other than the color issue, the product is great.
Flawless Full coverage, yes I said full coverage, so if you bought this thinking sheer and natural, you didn't read about the product first. This is fabulous for us gals with broken capillaries, acne, scars, and any other ruddy reddish or purplish flaw on the skin that needs to be really covered. You can make a totally clear slate with this foundation and then sculpt in the blush, the contouring if you want, and the eyes and lips to create the face you wish you really had!! Love this! I am super oily and I finish with the Beyond Matte translucent powder and and while I still have a luminescent sheen over my face from this JI make-up, it is healthy & glowy looking, not oily or dark and shiny. It keeps all my redness(flaws)covered all day , but I do touch up the oily bleed thorough that happens after several hours again with the Beyond Matte powder. Part of having oily skin....When I finally wash it off, I am shocked to see what I hid all day! Highly recommend for those needing to make a healthy blank canvas and go from there.
I received my order of this yesterday and really like the texture and finish this product provides. I have used Jane's amazing loose base for years and I use Bisque. I ordered BB1 (as LovelySkin.com said that one was similar to Bisque) but it seems a bit chalky and too pink. My skin has more yellow undertones as does my loose base in Bisque. I want to exchange it, but I'm not sure which one I should get. Can you help me chose the right color?
I am very surprised to see Aluminum Hydroxide as one of the ingredients. Some studies have shown that aluminum is linked to degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. I really wanted to try the Mineral BB Cream but knowing that is has aluminum is a big concern.
I picked up the whole box set which includes: Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener, GlowTime Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and then 5 smaller BB creams in different shades to test out. The BB cream is THICK! The first time I used it I applied the same amount on my foundation brush as I did with my other liquid foundation. (Pea sized) WAYYYYY too much. A teeny bit goes a very long way and it covers so well. I did notice that it does not look very well in the under eye area. It looks a bit clumpy and looks very noticeable. Each time I use it now I apply even less than half a pea sized drop, and I never put it under my eyes. I use a foundation with one drop of Jojoba oil, then the brightener and then the BB cream. Gives a flawless and even cover. It's AMAZING. I also love that it doesn't clog my pores, and it doesn't break me out. I've tried authentic Korean BB creams and they broke me out something horrible. For reference I have oily/acne prone skin. I don't feel I have anything on my face, and it doesn't transfer the way liquid foundations do. Love it!
I received a sample of the BB5 and I loved it!! My only complaint was that it gave me a little orange tone but the shade otherwise would be perfect. I haven't purchased one just because of that...
I received a sample of #5, and I absolutely love the product itself, great coverage yet natural looking. However, the shade doesn't work for me. It's a tad too light and too yellow. I wanted to try #7 but from what I'm reading it's just even more yellow. Does anyone have any input on which shade might work?
i've been looking every where for a full coverage BB cream that looks more natural and last all day long ; reading theese reveiws and searching this product really makes me think this could be the right BB cream for me ! ( finally ) ... but im not sure about what color i should be using & would really like to test this product out to see if it works for my skin type & lasts as long as i need it to ; so with that being said , is there any way i could get samples of the more fair colors before buying this product ?
This is the best stuff I have ever used and I have oily/combo skin so ladies if you have oily skin this is for you!! I have always had this issue with other foundations or BB creams making my face looks GROSS and a lot of the time more oily. This one goes on FLAWLESS it really gives you that flawless even skin look and it feels so light. Then as the day goes on and my face gets a bit oily (and I mean normal oily not crazy oily, this product does not make my face even more oily) it doesn't look oily. This product doesn't make my face look horrible and gross when my oily appears it gives me a glow that I have had ladies compliment me on! Its a must buy. I used to envy those ladies who would have a bright glowing flawless face well with this stuff my oily combo and sometimes red face looks like that!
I just bought this bb cream..my first ji product purchase and I'm already in love.. Ji will be seeing a lot more of me and my money!! Acne scars and hyperpigmentation are covered.. Love this!!!! ❤
This is by far the best foundation I have used since it gives excellent coverage without looking cakey and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all. I have fair skin with red undertones, acne scars, and active breakouts. I use about a pea-sized amount of BB3 every morning and that really is enough for full coverage over my entire face. It is a little thick, which I find helpful since I want full coverage. It blends easily and leaves a nice dewy look. I typically brush the Beyond Matte powder over my t-zone as my skin gets very oily during the day. I've been using this product for about two months and my skin has been much less acne-prone since I've switched to Jane Iredale products and since I've been using the Magic Mitt to remove makeup. Since it takes such a small amount, the product will last a long time which makes the price not so bad. I've been using it for two months and I'm still on my first container with plenty left.
Very moisturizing with great coverage (comparable to other med/ful coverage BB creams). It ended up being too heavy for me, and I switched to the Liquid Minerals, but I still think the formula would be amazing for the right skin type. However, there reaaaaalllly needs to be a #6. I've read other reviews and I agree with this. The #5 is too light and the #7 way too yellow. Even when I tried various degrees of mixing them together I couldn't get the right shade (Amber in the Liquid Minerals is perfect).
I purchased this at a store last fall, during a new store opening event. I used it for a while, but the tube is still in the cabinet. I found it too thick, difficult to spread and not at all the finish I was hoping for. I've tried some other Jane Iredale products and have been pleased, but this was a waste.
I LOVE LOVE jane iredale's products, I was first introduced by this green beauty store named "Vert" in venice, back then I only knew about the liquid liner..fast forward to two months ago, I was browsing at my local beauty supply, right by where I live and low and behold they carry J.I. I went in to ask about any suggestions for tinted moisturizers and the nice lady told me about JI's glow time..I specifically explained how my yellow toned skin is extremely hard to match and she said that BB7 is exactly what I need, she let me try it in a little container, I came back that same day...Please note, after you are done applying, you have to wait at least 30 minutes, and then it settles into the correct color of your skin along with the craziest awesome finish you could imagine..another amazing think about this is that the primer in this solution really REALLY works...it stays on my face all day long. Right now I am trying to figure out which color I am for the Pure Pressed, because I want something that is minimal coverage, and I cant seem to figure out which one it would be, but at least I have my medium coverage to deep coverage, this is buildable so if you want it to cover more, you just need to add layers...I used to buy all kinds of expensive non green brands, but I found everything I need in this one product. Please dont forget a couple things that I would have liked to when I bought..wait 1/2 hour for it to settle and always always warm the product between finger tips and it literally GLIDES on..!
I have been using Jane Iredale for about 5 years now and I am in love with all of the wonderful products! BB Cream is one product in particular that I have only been using for a few months but I absolutely love it, it works so well. However, I finished my first BB Cream so I bought a new one, but it seems to smell different. It smells much more fruity and full of fragrance like than it did before and now causes my skin to break out. I was wondering if maybe the ingredients were changed? And if so, why?
I absolutely love Jane Iredale makeup. I have only used the sample kit medium and love the colors although I'm not sure the foundations are right for me. I want to try the Glow Time Full Coverage BB Cream because I am a huge fan of liquid makeup vs powder. Although I do add power after for finishing and love the look. I am warm with yellow undertones and have redness on the cheeks and chin that I want covered. I have read the great reviews about coverage and staying power and I want that for myself. What color would you suggest for me please?
I love janr iredale products. I have oily skin. In the past had acne. Jane iredale is wonderful line that does not harm the skin. I normally wear pressed powder in bisque. I hear so much about bb creams so i decided to try it. I was instructed to buy bb3. Unfortunately that color was too light. I contacted jane iredale thinking that maybe i am applying it wrong or just too much. Ashley contacted me and sugessted that i try shade darker bb5 And yes she was right . I went back to where i purchased it and ask for exchange. I really though that since the color palette is so small i will not be able to find my color. Thank you Ashley for the suggestion! I also wanted to add that it is definitely a product that you do not need a lot of and you need to learn how to apply it. It looks very well when skin is well hydrated. Using hydrating masks is beneficial. It is worth trying.
Skin type: Dry, oily in t-zone with makeup on. Semi-mature skin. Acne prone. Hyperpigmentation from past breakouts. Skin color: Light tan/olive medium skin w/ yellow undertones. I wear BB5 mixed with BB7 (the shades are limited but whatever the product is amazing so I mix to get my exact shade but I've had to do this with EVERY foundation I've ever used). Issues with other foundations: Foundations always break me out. Never had a zit until I started wearing makeup then I had to wear makeup to cover up my skin breakouts. Nothing gives me enough coverage with GLOW, everything that gives glow never covers enough. ENTER JANE IREDALE BB CREAM GLOW TIME. Best foundation EVER!!!!!!! This is the ONLY skin makeup that has not made me have zits and it seems to even help my skin irritation go down. My skin has IMPROVED since using this makeup. COVERAGE: the coverage is AMAZING. Flawless, airbrushed look. HOW TO APPLY: It is mineral & it is THICK, so apply with clean warm finger tips, circular motions to melt it into your skin with your warmth, once it's melted in, then take a stippling brush & smooth it all out evenly for an airbrushed look. POWDER: I do powder my t-zone. LASTING POWER: It lasts on me all day beautifully, no patchiness, no melting off. You must not wear oil based products UNDER this foundation because oil REMOVES makeup, so mineral makeup will slide off your face if you're using a product UNDER it that doesn't combine well. I suggest using a day SERUM, not heavy lotions, oils, or oil based lotions. The product lasts months and months too, I am going on 5 months of the same tube & I use it everyday and I use quite a bit of it. Hope this review helped!
i love jane iredale products but for e this is a no no. really thick and a nightmare to put on.i try mixing with moisturiser and other ways to see if it goes on any better but nothing has worked. pity as i was going a cruise and thought it would be ideal. i,m sorry but is only good for the bin . Nan
This is the best foundation I have ever purchased. Every time I wear it, people tell me I have beautiful skin and that I'm literally glowing. Even my makeup artist friends ask where I bought my foundation. It's amazing! I'm 26 years old, and this combined with the wonderful smelling primer, gives me amazing skin. My skin has even improved over time and looks good without makeup. Love this stuff! Please don't ever stop making it. It might be good to get a higher range of colors though, because BB5 is too light for me and BB7 is to dark. Its to costly to purchase two bottles. Might be good to have one right in between those! Love this stuff!
I have used various BB creams and like Jane Iredale's BB cream the best. I ordered BB3 and here's my initial reaction - I dot it on with my fingers and started to spread it on my face. At first I thought to myself, I wonder if this color matches okay as it looked really yellowish but as many of you know that have used BB creams, the color starts to change after a few minutes. Also, if one is not used to applying BB creams, it takes some practice. Some of you remarked that it's too thick and doesn't spread. If the formulation was any thinner, I don't think it would cover very well. I found after wearing the BB cream all day and night, that the coverage was still fresh looking at the end of the day. I powdered over the BB cream with Satin loose minerals and the finish looked phenomenal. I did notice that the BB cream did not cover the pores on the side of my nose initially until later on when the BB cream started to smooth out more. I think I will apply a little of the Smooth Affair before the BB cream and that should take care of that issue. Both products smell wonderful. The Smooth Affair smells like citrus. I think that all BB creams after a few hours will create some oiliness to the skin but I find that Jane Iredale BB cream holds up the best. I usually blot the excess oil once a day with one of those oil blotting papers. Not much oil was apparent with Jane Iredale BB cream where other BB creams really melted after a few hours and had to be touched up.
I'm 72 and have spent the last 43 years looking for the right foundation. This is it. It's the only one that gives me everything I want for my pale, translucent, pinkish skin (I use BB1): It's the perfect color, so I don't have to mix other color in anymore. The coverage is excellent, so my veins don't show. It brightens my face, which almost no other foundation has ever done. It doesn't settle into wrinkles. It doesn't need powder. It looks absolutely natural--a friend couldn't believe I was wearing foundation. It has a soft, dewy finish. It's cruelty free (essential). And no fragrance. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Thank you, Ms. Iredale, for ending my very long search.
I am oily and ruddy with reddish areas from broken capillaries and I need FULL COVERAGE and this is it!! i am fair so I use BB3 and apply it with fingers and then I use my JI Foundation brush to make sure I got it even and in all the areas around the nose, under the eyes, too as it is it's own concealer since it's full coverage! Covers all imperfections and evens out my skin tone to a nice natural canvas so I can finish off with the JI cream blushes and then a dusting of the Pure Matte Pressed Powder translucent. Stays on long and looks natural and healthy even on oily skin.
I was using Dream Tint and Amazing Base, but powder is making me look older these days. I heard about BB creams on Dr. Oz and decided to see if Jane Iredale had one, since I love all her makeup. And I am happy I found Glow Time--I don't need two layers anymore to hide my rosacea. I got the BB1 and put too much on the first time, put it all over my face, looked super white, but then after a few minutes, I just looked like porcelain! With no powdery edges. I'll use less in the future, but I think I'm going to love Glow Time--just a little of that and I'm good to go!
I was excited to try BB cream after using other Jane Iredale products and loving them. I am extremely disappointed in this product for several reasons. While wanting full coverage this cream is hard to work into skin and leaves be feeling cakey. I had my skin matched twice by a professional and both of the colors I've tried have not blended well with my skin. I also started breaking out after using this product. I have decided to switch back to the mineral beads foundation because it makes my skin GLOW. Love Jane Iredale products just don't recommend this one.
I am in love with this foundation! No more concealer s . Just apply with fingers as shown a you have amazing flawless coverage! 5 stars is not enough. Easy ,beautiful and skin feels amazing!
I'm not too impressed with this product - it is too thick and difficult to blend smoothly. Can a moisturizer be used with it to thin it out? I also look jaundiced and my supplier did check the match. I recommend trying out the product before purhasing. It is not a product for everyone. I wish I had tried it out because I probably wouldnt have purchased it.
The look and feel of my skin has improved noticeably after using Glow Time. A small amount offers exceptional coverage, and my skin does indeed appear to glow while never looking like I am wearing foundation. Also, I have very acne prone skin; however, I strongly believe this mineral cream has attributed to my clear skin. I am thrilled and blessed to have discovered such a wonderful make-up!
I've been using this a couple weeks now. I have very sensitive skin and the weather has just changed so my skin is especially sensitive. I was hoping this product would solve the issue of covering my blemishes and splotchy skin while not being drying but unfortunately this did not do the trick. The product has a drying effect that I was not expecting. I wear my normal moisturizer underneath. Not quite right.
I am usually someone that reads reviews & not writes them, but this product is wonderful! I have tried so many different foundations and I finally feel really good about a purchase. I was a bit hesitant because of the price, but it is worth it for the amount you get. You don't need much for great coverage. My skin feels nourished and looks great. I am 31 with medium skin that is a bit acne proned and oily, but I've noticed a decrease in breakouts since using it this last week. My fingers are crossed that it will continue to work out!
I had high hope for this product because bb cream is popular because people found it has more coverage than the liquid one and more natural looking than powder foundation. Wrong in all aspects. The texture is too thick and pasty like oil paint spread on the canvas at the time of apply. Just sits there. However, 3-4 hours later, some are melted on my face and I look like a person with vitiligo. The color BB 5 is too yellow on my skin and I'm Asian. This color would be even yellow for people with jaundice. I'm afraid to buy other shades now. I don't know what the lab staff thought and how they formulated the cream but it doesn't deliver the purpose described on the product page.
I absolutely love the coverage. However, after a couple of hours my skin becomes very oily & the cream doesn't last very long. Do you have any solutions?
This product is thick and has no moisturizing effect. It's like smearing concrete on my face. The only way I can use it at all is to mix it with a day cream. I was very disappointed and have no idea what benefit I'm gaining.
Glow Time is the most amazing foundation I have ever used! I am 57 with pretty good skin except for large pores. I prefer a dewy finish that doesn't look dry like elephant hide when you step outside into the light. From the first application (used a brush) I was in LOVE! Unbelievable coverage without mask-like feel. It only takes 2 pea sized drops for entire face. Finish is dewy and GLOWS!! I used B5 even with my cool undertones. Worked great. Set it with D2O Hydration Spray. Luminous finish and it LASTS all day. Compliments abound!
I will never try a different makeup, this is great for wrinkled, aging skin. Goes on smooth apply the primer before the foundation you will not be disappointed it is amazing!!!!!!!
I would really like this, but also am in between the 5 and 7 colors. I am a medium light, with light olive undertone; more neutral. The 5 is too light and the 7 is much to yellow. I had to blend my Warm Sienna over in loose powder to work it out, but that defeats the purpose.
I love it :)...I find that it goes on even easier if I apply a touch of facial oil first. The other day I applied some organic argan oil-then put the BB5 cream on top-twas perfect :) ox
JUst a little dot of this foundation gives me better coverage than I've ever experienced. It blends flawlessly and gives me a gorgeous dewy look. I'll never wear anything else!
I just got my BB cream yesterday and used it for the first time today. I really like it so far. A few comments: *It offers much fuller coverage than what I had been using (Dream Tint and/or pressed powder.) *A little goes a loooong way. You only need a tiny bit of product to cover your whole face. *It's really blendable and easy to apply. I used a foundation brush and followed up with a cosmetic sponge, then a hydration spray. Good stuff!
I'm a huge Jane Iredale fan. I've been using the Liquid Minerals for some time but wished it had better coverage. Glow Time is exactly what I was looking for. It provides great coverage, but if I want a slightly lighter look, I mix it with Liquid Minerals to thin it out a bit. It looks best applied with a damp sponge, and I set it with my other all-time favorite JI product: Pure matte finish powder. I have very sensitive skin, and was concerned that I might react to this, but after 2 weeks, still absolutely no problems. Thank you---please don't change it or discontinue, ever!!
I first got the B7 and it was yellow yellow yellow...then went for the B5 and it was too light...the two together do not combine well so I now own two of this product that I cannot use. love all my Jane Iredale products just wish this had worked too.
I just went to the launch of Glow Time at my local Soft Surroundings store. It is wonderful. I love the way you can tailor the coverage from light to full and the natural look of my skin. And to think Glow Time is good for my skin. What a great product!
Received a sample of JI BB1 cream. Unbelievable......need I say more? This bb cream matches my pale redhead skin perfectly. I'm oily an large pored, and it does not adversely affect either condition. Applied sparingly, I build upon it for a flawless peaches and cream look. This product is magic, really. It appears as though nothing is on the skin. The final look, flawless, natural and healthy with a glow. Having used the same foundation for 25 years, has me converted. At 53 I have the best looking skin I have had in a lifetime. I need to go into sales for this product line in Asia! Asian women are notorious for skin care and this would rock their world.
I don't normally write reviews but I love this product and the primer so much, that I'm making the effort to do so. I usually wear the pure pressed base (golden glow), but now I live in a warmer climate (Hawaii) so I wanted to try a liquid foundation as i'm finding I look a little washed out by the end of the day when using my powder. I purchased the smooth affair primer and the Glow Time BB7 and used it for the first time yesterday... AMAZING! I went out on a boat and was in the heat for quite some time. By the end of the day my skin still looked fresh, moisturized, young and vibrant. I AM SOOOO IMPRESSED. It feels great - once it's on you don't even remember it's on. It smells even better and I am just SO SO SO SO SO HAPPY! For anyone looking for a more dewy look over a powder i'd recommend this! I will still use my powder when I go out at night as I love the look of the powder, but for a more active daytime perfect coverage (with SPF) i'm definitely sticking with this :-) I LOVE YOU AND AM SO APPRECIATIVE OF YOU JANE IREDALE :-)
As a model (over 50 years of age) I first heard about Jane Iredale cosmetics through a makeup artist on set. She swore by the line and liking the results she produced, I decided to give it a try. I am in LOVE with this makeup! The coverage is great, covers little dark spots and freckles I need to hide, plus it gives a flawless finish to my skin with no settling in creases, or fine lines. It doesn't rub off, feel very light on, and does not look heavy on like a lot of medium to full coverage foundations. This is my "go to" makeup for every day and for modeling or stage events. An added plus is having the SPF factor so I don't have to worry about sun damage. Would HIGHLY recommend for any woman who is over a "certain age" and looking for that soft focus finish of days gone by. This makeup does the trick. I do wish they would add a few neutral tones between the shades of their present offerings but for now I use BB7 for summer and mix BB5 and BB7 for winter when my skin is lighter.
I have been a Liquid Minerals girl for about 6 years now, and last year I switched to the Amazing Base because my rosacea has gotten worse and the LM was just not covering the awful redness & bumps (although it makes my skin feel great!). My skin is really dry, though, so the AB was absorbing some of the precious moisture on my skin. I was so excited when I saw that Jane Iredale had a new liquid foundation that (bonus!) was moisturizing and provided medium to full coverage! I just got my order today, and I am so pleased! I feel like my skin looks 5+ years younger (I'm 31), and the Glow Time feels great on my skin. I love that it is thick enough to hide the redness, but it doesn't look cakey or unnatural. Thanks again, Jane Iredale, for another outstanding product!
Well done Jane Iredale! I have tried so many BB creams and foundations and they just didn't do it for my overly sensitive skin. Glow Time covers just like a full coverage foundation but minus all the awful fillers and chemicals they contain. I am very satisfied with this product and hope they never discontinue it. I plan on spreading the word about it to all of my friends and family.
Not what i expected - read so much about BB creams that i wanted to try it from JI line because i like their mineral foundations and concealers. However, i was disappointed with this cream.. It feels thick and just sat on top of my skin. It makes my pores standout. It was difficult to smooth on due to its thickness. It is thicker than a liquid foundation, in my opinion. Now I just use it as a spot concealer.
We just received the testers for the Glow Time at our office and I LOVE this product! I am someone who usually wears the liquid minerals so I am used to a lighter coverage but I love the look of this as well! I really did feel like I had a "bit of a glow" to my skin. Thanks Jane for another awesome product that I didn't even know I needed!
I was so excited to purchase and use the BB cream for my casual everyday running errands routine. Unfortunately the BB5 was to light and the BB7 to dark. I had to put my Warm Silk pressed powder over it to lighten it........which of course defeated the whole purpose of the BB cream. I am hoping that the odd number only colors means you plan to come out with even numbers? I need a 6....PLEASE because I love the product and want to get it ASAP.
I have started using Smooth Affair & Glow time .I think it looks great and flawless
I bought this and am quite pleased! I have tried several of the traditional Korean bb creams. All of them have been nice but not great for oily skin as they break me out. the only one I've found aside from this one that I liked was the Rachel k cc cream but it does not provide much coverage. This bb cream is medium to full coverage as they claim. I've tried using brushes, sponges and my fingers. I suggest using a small amount and use you fingers to apply otherwise it can get a little cakey. Overall a nice product as usual Jane iredale, keep up the great work!
