MAYBELLINE Clear Glow 8 in 1 BB Cream Review


I purchased MAYBELLINE CLEAR GLOW 8 in 1 BB CREAM, because of its numerous claims, like the name 8 in 1 says.


8 in 1 skin transformer with Micro-minerals. Infused with a blend of good ingredients to deliver 8 skin transforming benefits:

Instantly brightens: Brightens skin to one tone lighter.
Protects with SPF 21/ PA+++: Has a smooth, light & non-greasy texture.
Evens tone: Hides imperfections & corrects uneven skin tone.
Hydrates: Moisturises all day (8 hours).
Conceals: Perfectly conceals flaws, blemishes & redness.
Smoothes: Instantly makes skin softer & smoother.
Mattifies: Controls shine all day.
Freshens: Resists sweat & sebum for 5 hours. 

The name Maybelline Clear Glow  8 in 1 BB Cream itself attracts everyone by convincing that this cream will solve all the problems we girls have, i.e it claims to brighten, even, hydrate, protect, freshen, smoothen, clarify & conceal. This cream is actually targeting all the problems along with the goodness of providing you spf & little coverage, thats what we always call a tinted moisturizer, a moisturizer mixed with little foundation

Now let me come to the review whether it does what it claims or not.

Firstly the tube is really pretty. This cute looking tube was one of the attractions to buy this BB cream. Now the cream is neither thick nor liquid, just the right consistency. But what I observed it did not blend too easily on face. I had to put little effort for this. May be because sometimes my skin tends to become dry. 

After application my skin instantly looked glowing, but little dry. I would not say matt, since I could see my laugh lines on some areas. But my major disappointment was my skin started to itch after 3 - 4 hrs of applying it. I wasn’t sure if it was this Maybelline cream or something else so I continued applying for  5 -6 days more but my skin itched may be more or less some day. So this cream didn’t suit me but let me tell that I have sensitive skin & many products don’t suit me.

Overall this cream didn’t work for me. I am very happy with most of my Maybelline products like Maybelline Colossal Kajal, Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara, but this cream was a disappointment for me.


Comes from a reliable Brand MAYBELLINE.
Brightens face Instantly
Beautiful & travel friendly tube


Makes Skin little dry so wont suit dry skin
Cannot replace a foundation…since the coverage is extreme light
Little expensive @ Rs 200 for 16grms
Might not work on sensitive skin

Overall Rating - 2/5
