Benefit’s Big Easy BB Cream Review: The Solution to Oily Skin

(Taken on iPhone 5s)

Its summertime which for most people means you are rejoicing at the sight of sun, beaches, and bikinis, but for people with oily skin this means more of those oil slicks to combat!

For those of you who carry around blotting papers, powders, and mattifying sprays, I suggest you put those down and listen up! I think I found your summertime solution to your skincare woes…

May I introduce to you the holy grail product by Benefit Cosmetics – Big Easy Liquid to Powder BB cream! This product is simply amazing and for many reasons, but let me start with the basics.

Firstly, the BB cream has an SPF of 35 and comes out as a thick liquid that once applied and dries turns into a powder. This is great because you don’t have to worry about transferring the product to clothes or for it to become cakey.

Another benefit is that it shrinks pores. Due to its powder finish, pores are minimized and  essentially erases them (even without a primer). It doesn’t sit in pores or fine lines but manages to blend those imperfections flawlessly.

This is the ONLY BB cream I can trust to control my oil throughout the day in the summer. The multi-balancing complexion perfector helps to reduce oil and shine throughout the day. I can wear this for 8+ hours without needing to blot or retouch. Hallelujah! The photo above is after wearing it for approximately 6 hours and running errands.

As some of you already know, I have pigmentation on my cheeks from previous blemishes and as you can see this BB cream does a pretty good job of covering those up. For my face I needed to apply the cream twice for full coverage and set it, otherwise some pigmentation might show through.

 What I love:
Buildable Coverage

SPF 35 to protect skin

Oil control

Erased pores

Soft to the touch

Natural finish

No transfer

No setting powder required


Dried quickly so you need to act fast to blend it in!

Overall this product is worth investing in, especially for the summer. I highly suggest you get a sample at Sephora and try for yourself!
