BB creams are one of the most popular make up products found in the Indian market. There are a lot of people who don’t like to use foundation, however sheer coverage it might give on a daily basis. BB creams are their best friend as it is both like and unlike foundation. Like foundations it gives a very subtle to medium coverage depending on the product while unlike the foundation it doesn’t appear cakey or over the top. I have used a lot of BB creams till now but my top 2 will be Ponds BB cream and Garnier BB cream. This time when I went to the grocery store I bought this Fair and Lovely BB cream as I wanted to try it for reviewing purpose. This post is all about that. So lets go and read about Fair and Lovely BB Cream in details.

The Fair and Lovely BB cream comes in a very cute packaging. I have the smaller tube as I am not a very big fan of Fair and Lovely as a brand. The product comes inside a box that has all the essential information written over it including the full ingredient list. The tube is white and brown in colour but it looks so good. The cap is really tight and sturdy so there is no chance of leakage. Overall the packaging is really a hit.
My take on Fair and Lovely BB cream:
Fair and Lovely BB cream comes is very light when compared to most Indian skin tones. This is the first thing I noticed after taking the product on my fingers. It can be used by someone with an extremely pale skin tone but it is definitely not for the mass. Yes it can be used as a concealer if you are not willing to spend a huge amount on concealers otherwise you always have the Maybelline Fit me Concealer.
The BB cream is non oily and non sticky and so can be used by oily skin girls. For the dry skin beauties, this is not the best option for you. It gets blended but like a typical fairness cream leaves behind a white cast which they term fairness. Anyways, the cream is very rich in consistency and so will give a nice coverage. It is build-able if you are comfortable which the fairness thing. It has a very strong Fair and Lovely smell which I don’t like at all. For me I am happy with this as my concealer as I can get miser in the concealing part.
I apply this concealer after cleaning my face with Biotique Bio Honey Face wash and applying Lacto Calamine Lotion as my primer. It lasts long atleast for 4-5 hours after which it fades out. Overall I think this is okay when it comes to BB cream but I am definitely not comfortable with the fairness thing associated. This is a normal BB cream for daily purpose, nothing to rave.
- Good as a concealer
- For oily skin
- For very white and pale skin
- Cute packaging
- Not for dry skin
- Very light for most Indian skin tones
- Fragrance is very strong
- Can settle in dry patches
Recommendation and repurchase:
No! I won’t repurchase the product as I will buy a good concealer in the upcoming days.
Those who are really pale or those who love fairness cream with a foundation touch can opt for this. Even oily skin girls can. Can be an one time try!
Fair and Lovely BB cream is an average fairness cum BB cream which has nothing to rave about. It is affordable and is for very pale skin tone. It is widely available and acts as a good concealer. So overall its okay-okay types!
