Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream Review, shades and swatches
Hey Girlies!! Here I am with my next Review – Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream Review. I love oriflame products as we all know that Oriflame is not only loved by Indian cosmetics market but international beauty world as well. Before going through the review, let have a little hoo haa about what a BB cream actually is, and do we really need a BB cream in our cosmetic collection? -A BB cream is the perfect solution to get a flawless skin without using tons of products. Short for Beauty Balms or Blemish Balms, this versatile make up hybrid promises to perform the job of 5-6 other tubes and jars – primer, moisturizer, sunscreen, concealer, skin treatment and foundation. Trust me, BB Creams have become one of the hottest trends today. Best for everyday use!
Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream Shades and Swatches
Well, Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream comes in 2 shades – light and medium. You may check the swatches of both shades in the below image. Having a dusky Indian skin tone, the medium shade suits me better.
I was a little confused as why do, Oriflame has launched their BB Cream in just 2 shades, I was expecting atleast 4-5 shades. But once you use them, you will get your answer. The Oriflame Skin Dream BB cream gives a medium coverage and hence, you dnt actually need so many shades. I am sure the question would have popped up in your minds – If it doesn’t give a great coverage than do I use it!! Voila, I read your mind *Blush *Blush
Well, this is an amazing product that gives a medium coverage and doesn’t make you look like a makeup doll. It gives a nice no make-up look but does lighten up those blemishes and scars and all.
Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream Packaging and Texture
The oriflamme skin dream bb cream comes in a nice soft tube that can be squeezed easily to get the quantity one needs. But, like all the tubes, when it ends, it becomes really tough to get those last few drops left inside. All in all, the packaging looks nice and is travel friendly.
The texture of the cream is slightly runny and not really thick and creamy. But being slightly runny helps it blend easily. Its great for normal to dry skin girls. Oily skin girls must remove excess oil before using it.
Price – Rs 699/- for 30ml

My Experience with Oriflame Skin Dream BB Cream – How to use
I have oily skin, so I cleaned my skin to get rid of excess oil. I took a pea sized amount on the back of hand and started putting it all over my face and neck. The cream glided and blended in the skin with ease, so I didn’t have to use any brushes or sponge to make it blend in my skin. After applying the bb cream, I used a little face powder on my t-zone to pamper my oily skin a bit more. Applied eyeliner, lip gloss and voila I am done with my makeup.
My hubby was so happy to see me all set to go and that too in just a few minutes *LOL, we all girls take a bit time for makeup, isn’t it and those last minute touch ups take a bit more *wink. But the happiness on our man’s face is million dollars when we cut that make up time to minutes……
Okay, back to business. I loved the no makeup look and also that I was safe from sun with spf 30 included in oriflamme skin dream bb cream. Although, I have oily skin, and I need to touch up every few hours, I was amazed as I didn’t feel the need for touch up anytime before 4-5 hours. So thumbs up from my side. I avoid using this bb cream, when I need heavy coverage.
