I have never really been one to use full coverage foundations, and have always naturally gravitated toward lighter coverage foundations, tinted moisturizers and BB creams. I like for my skin to show through, and prefer a natural finish. Therefore, I was very excited to try the new Burt's Bees BB Cream as soon as I learned about its launch, and thought that you would be very interested to learn about this high quality gem that is also very affordable.
Burt's Bees BB Cream with Noni Extract SPF 15 is a lightweight moisturizing BB Cream that offers the coverage of a light to medium coverage foundation or tinted moisturizer, and a natural finish that enhances and perfects the appearance of skin while allowing it to show through. The antioxidant-rich formula provides the skin with wonderful long-lasting hydration while smoothing and evening skin tone. It has a lovely creamy consistency that feels great on the skin, and it leaves behind a slight, natural luminosity. While it does contain sunscreen, it is an SPF 15– therefore, I still use an additional sunscreen with a higher sun protection factor since I live in Los Angeles, and require more protection.
Burt's Bees BB Cream with SPF 15, marries makeup and moisturizer in a light, natural formula. This cream possesses the essence of the noni plant, known for being rich in antioxidants and moisturizing properties. This cream is clinically shown to even skin tone while moisturizing. It protects the skin from sun damage with SPF 15 and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with a light tone base. It also visibly firms, conceals, smooths, illuminates and perfects skin.

• SPF 15 protection
• Firms, conceals, smooths, perfects, and illuminates skin
• Evens skin tone and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Available in 3 Shades: Light, Light/Medium and Medium.
I could have probably just as easily used the lightest shade, but Light/Medium also works for my skin, and will probably be a better match during the summer months. It appears a bit too warm and dark for me in the tube, but once it melts into my skin it looks natural on my skin.
