My experience with Maybelline Clear Glow BB Cream 

The moment I saw the tube, I was a bit disappointed. It’s so tiny.  But, this little beauty has its own sweet advantages. It claims to be foundation, sun screen and a moisturizer and it is. It evens out my skin tone and gives a nice subtle healthy glow, which i always crave for. The shades are a bit confusing. I got the Nude shade which looks darkest in the images but it perfectly suits my fair and pale complexion. All these creams have yellow undertones which suit well to asian skin tones. It gives light coverage, evens out my skin tone and blends like a dream. It’s also very easily available.

I need a very small amount and apply it like a regular face cream. The consistency is not very thick nor very runny and is just right. I have dry skin and I need to moisturise my face first and then use it. It can also be mixed with moisturiser and applied. My T zone is oily and it did make it abit more shiny after 4-5 hours.


Nozzle opening to control the quantity


This has become my go to cream for everyday. The only con I find is the quantity. Its too less. I wish it was more, like 30 ml or so. It gets over very quickly. 15 ml is appropriate for eye creams not face creams. Maybelline, are you listening ??

I saw one of these on the counters and was surprised to find that the tube is soooo tiny...yes, it should have been 30ml at least for the cost they have put. and, its shades are also confusing. I am yet to receive mine so waiting to find out how will i like it :)
