I just smelled the product, and all this time of using this product I did not even notice there's a scent. It's very light and not noticeable unless you put your nose on the tip like I just did. :X
Now for my overall opinion... The BB Cream before this has a thin coverage so I was expecting a thin coverage with this BB Cream. Let me tell you it's thinner than the thin coverage. It hardly covers anything. I can see all my imperfections from all the freckles to my acne. This product is definitely not meant for someone who has a lot of imperfections. It aims for people with good to great canvas. If you have good canvas, you can cover it up with concealer before or after the BB Cream depending on how you use it.
I should be NC25 with MAC foundation at the moment. Since I'm light skin right now but not pale, I decided to get Light. Light is the second lightest color and let me tell you it was darker than my NC25 skin. In my opinion, it will fit someone who is NC30 or above. I was also hoping for some kind of oxidation so it will blend into my skin tone. It blended a little bit but not like the typical BB Creams I'm use to.
I guess you can say I wasn't content with this product. It did not do what it says, 4 beautifying actions in 1. It definitely did not prime (smooth my skin texture), perfects (hide my imperfections), I did not have any issue with hydrates (all day moisture), and did not have issue with corrects (healthy looking, even complexion).
* L'Oreal; brand I trust.
* Comes in a tube with long, thin tip.
* Hardly any scent.
* Hydrates a bit.
* 4 shades; need more versatile selection.
* Does not oxide to skin tone.
* Does not cover imperfections.
* Does not smooth skin texture.
* Will not hydrate really dry skin.
* Does not correct complexion.
Would repurchase: No.
