BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25
Not for the pale girls
I really want to give this product a 5. The coverage is magnificent, my complexion stays fresh and dewy all day, and if you mix it with the Beauty Flash Balm, it glides on and blends beautifully. If only it didn't make me look like an Oompa Loompa. Granted, the orange hue blends into the skin after about 10 minutes, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to leave the house! But after a few days of testing my sample, I couldn't bring myself to buy it. The tone is just way off. I have pale, translucent skin, and even though a little color would be nice, that color should not be orange.
Unfortunately, I bought a BB cream from a different prestige cosmetics line and it made me break out. Clarins is the ONLY line I trust to be kind to my sensitive skin. I don't know if the formulation of the BB cream makes it difficult to get the tone right, but PLEASE fix it! I really want to use this product!

Great all in one!
I got this as a sample for a purchase I made and recieved the light shade, it went on smooth and gave me a little color that I didn't even need brinzer. I also like that it already has SPF in it so I don't have to make that extra step.

Much too dark, needs a better color range
This was recommended to me as a replacement of the recently defunct instant smooth foundation. While I was more pleased that I expected about the quality of this cream ( it does seem to have a nice flat finish, which I was looking for), I am not sure whether it offers the same level of coverage as the instant smooth foundation. But I would definitely consider buying it, if only it came in a color that approximated my beloved 1.5 tender beige. The light color currently offered is so dark that it makes me look like poorly made up vaudeville actor, or a carrot, you decide. Either way, not the look I was going for. More shades, please!

Very dark. Rolls in flakes
First of all even the lightest tone is very dark and yellow. But it does not change it's color unlike many other BBs. Would suit ladies with medium to dark skin tones.
Gets flaky on me, don't know why - I apply it over my regular Clarins moisturiser. Does not provide enought moisture by itself.
Nice finish, does not shine. I general, would be okay to replace foundation if they had lighter tones in range.
