L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream Review

When I come across something awesome, I feel like it's my blogstress (?) duty to share that awesome thing with you ladies. Especially if it has benefits. Today, I wanted to introduce you to the L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream because honestly, it really is magic.

If you are like me and you don't like wearing a full face of foundation every day, but want your skin to have a smoother "barely there" appearance, a BB cream is the perfect solution. 

If you remember, I had been using the Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream previously and thought it was just okay. Compared to this, it is crap. The L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB cream actually feels like you have nothing on your skin, and virtually erases skin imperfections. Just look at these before and after shots...


I've been having splotchy red spot issues lately (thanks hormones!) and was absolutely shocked at how well this stuff does at fixing those issues cosmetically. Seriously... Magic!

The thing about this BB cream is that it's not like a coloured moisturizer that you smear on your face, like many other BB creams. It goes on totally white and has these little grains that "magically" blend into your skin and produce the shade... and it does a heck of a job matching your skin tone.


The best part is, it's totally matte. I can wear it all day long without worrying about becoming shiny and it holds up really well.

While this BB cream won't entirely hide the more stubborn areas as a foundation would, like really dark under-eye circles or inflamed acne, it definitely offers a lightweight coverage. Since it's matte, it also makes the perfect base for makeup or concealer if you want to go back in and cover up those more annoying areas.

The L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream comes in four shades: Fair, Light, Medium and Deep. It only retails for about $8 in your local retailer's cosmetic aisle (Walmart, Target, etc.), or you can get it online here.

Overall, I will continue to use this and recommend it to anybody looking for a lightweight coverage that really does seem to "erase" imperfections!

And just a disclaimer, I haven't been asked or paid to do this review. I purchased this BB cream at my own will and nobody at L'Oreal even knows I am posting this. I just truly think it is awesome ;)

    1. My thoughts exactly! I couldn't find many before/after pics of it online either. And it's so cheap too!

  3. I agree - this is the best inexpensive BB cream I have tried. I just wish it had SPF in it!

    1. Personally I don't like beauty products with SPF in them. They break me out and in photos they leave a white haze on my face.

  4. I've been eyeing this for awhile but always feared it would make my somewhat oily skin even oilier but you convinced me... I have to go and get this! ^_^ Only downside is the lack of SPF :O

  6. Hello, I am glad you like it...but not sure the skin likes it :-)) I am not a super fan of L'oreal ( and I am french!) because of their product composition. Ingredients used in their products are not super top for the skin .....mineral oil, harsh preservatives etc...etc that can only clog the pores than do any other benefits.....
    Voila, :-) Love your blog by the way :-)

    1. Thanks I'm glad you like my blog! I've checked the ingredients and there is no mineral oil in this product. Are you talking about this product in particular, or just generalizing that their products all have these things in them? I've never used a L'Oreal product before besides shampoo a couple times, but this seems totally fine on my sensitive skin.

    2. Hello Dana,
      I was more talking in general maybe since I know the brand quite well. For instance, this BB cream is really packed of silicones....silicones are not at all the greatest skin friendly ingredients for the skin. ..not at all. Really it is pity that a brand such as L'Oreal do not make a bit more efforts in terms of their product composition. Have a great evening :-)

    3. This is exactly the reason I want to love Loreal BB but I cannot, because of the silicone.

  7. I've wanted to try out a BB cream for a while now, but there are so many out there and there are so many mixed reviews. Luckily, I trust your opinion and the pictures make it look great - plus, I think were the same skin tone, so I'm definitely going to see if my drugstore carries this one :)

  8. Lovely post and totally have to try this!!

  9. oh, that looks amazingly good.
    do you know if there's any lighter shade?

  10. Ack, I'm so mad at BB creams. They make my face look FLAWLESS, but they break me out like nuts so. Good job on finding an awesome one, your skin looks lovely!

  11. I LOVE this stuff. I stumbled across it a few months ago and it is now my go-to product.

  12. I was using the Garnier stuff and thought it was pretty good, but the proof is in the pictures - this stuff looks like a winner! Might be my next purchase :)

    1. Yeah what I hated most about the Garnier was that it would so easily come off. Like you could wipe your face with your finger and it would transfer. I just always felt like I was "slick" with it on.

  13. I really like the concept of this BB cream! You should also try their CC cream :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've been using this stuff for a few months now! I am so in love with it! It is by far the best BB Cream I've found!

    ReplyDelete
  15. This might be the review that totally cements my wanting to try a BB cream! You've convinced me!

  16. I've been wanting to try a BB cream for a while now, and this might be just the one! Thanks for the review and pictures :)

  17. Ooo I am SOO glad I found this post. I've been looking for a drugstore BB cream because while I like the higher end one I use, I don't use it enough to want to pay $40+ for it. So I've made a point to try the Garnier since it's really the only drugstore one I've heard about. I didn't even know L'Oreal had a BB cream but I'm definitely going to try this! I trust L'Oreal much more than I do Garnier as a brand but to have you say it makes the Garnier look like crap is really something too. I'm very impressed with the coverage! Awesome :)

  18. i saw this at target the other day and wanted to get it but was unsure of it. now i'm DEF gonna get it. i did buy the "magic nude liquid powder" they have tho. and i love it. but i think this BB is gonna be even better.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Fascinating! I'm detinitely going to try this. You'd think that at 34, I would be over acne, but I'm so not! Lol. If this works as good as you say, it'll definitely be worth the $8! :)

  25. This is the only BB cream I use and its fantastic! I am more of a full coverage gal but if im having a good skin week, I'll use this just because it is easy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Okay, I have been hearing people rave about this, I know my roommate uses it but I never really had a huge desire to try it. But now I think I just might have to. Can't beat $8 too! http://sissysclosetxo.blogspot.com/

  27. I will definitely have to try this now. Thanks for sharing.

  28. I love this BB cream! I actually just cut the end of my bottle off to get to the last of the product, haha! so glad it's getting some attention

    ReplyDelete
  29. WOW, the before and after picture is amazing! I'm never one to do lotions/cream (because I'm either too lazy or hate the feeling of it later) but it sounds like this cream is extremely light and works wonders. I'm definitely looking into this ASAP!

    Thanks for the review!

  32. Thanks for posting this. Never would have tried this on my own. Got it today and it is perfect. Thanks for taking the time to review it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I actually really like the Garnier one, so I bet I would LOVE this! I've been trying another one from Vitacost's line and I really wanted to love it because the ingredients are more natural but I'm not really a fan so far.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lix at A Classic Notion linked this post and WOW. I'm going to try this. I've never used a BB cream before, but I just haven't found a foundation I'm happy with, so maybe this will be a solution for me!

  35. I bought this stuff based solely on your positive review and I must say, it did not disappoint. Recommending to everyone on Earth now...

  36. I have such bad luck with bb creams, maybe I'll give this one a go
