  1. Well this one is a no-brainer, it has to be the SPF protection. You see I’m starting work this May and will end up travelling a lot! Hence what I really need is good sun protection. Add to this the fact that the BB cream also lets me look bright and fresh all the time, it is an absolute win-win :)
    Since I’m not born with it, it has to be Maybelline ;)

  2. In my opinion the following benefits in a cream will be most helpful :
    1) Protects with SPF 21/PA+++ :
    Because Indian climate is such that a sunscreen is required everyday and most sunscreens render skin a patchy white chalk power look which looks ugly. What i do is, i mix sunscreen and moisturizer so that it evenly distributes and does not leave white patches in my skin. So this BB cream would be awesome for me bcoz i will not have to do that.

    2)Conceals , Evens Tone & Smoothens :
    For a special occasion look i use a foundation for a even look and to hide the spots , so with BB cream there will be no need for a foundation and i hope it will give much better results than a foundation.Further foundation does not give a smooth effect.

    3) Instantly Brightens :
    This is one thing for which women use a lot of products , but in vain . Skin looks bright just after applying moisturizer but that glow effect does not stay for long.

    4) Mattifies :
    An oily face is an irritating thing . Will be great to have a matte effect.

    N most important if i can have all these benefits in one cream , it will save a lot of time and money and the look will boost my self-confidence.

    Thanks !!

  3. For me, the BB cream is a winner because it protects with SPF 21/ PA+++. Most sunscreens only provide this protection but the BB cream is about so much more.With the BB in my bag, it’s like fitting in all of my creams into it- I no more have to worry about separate concealers, sunscreens, hydrating gels or fairness creams.
    With someone who ends up spending all her time in the sun, life couldnt get any simpler.

  4. I love the fact that it conceals and the sunscreen protects so i don’t have to get another layer of sunscreen and layer my face.Plus the absence of whitish cast is a blessing in disguise

  9. Sometimes, when I am casually walking around during the day, i outshine the sun..I have received several notices from the irate sun god to mattify my skin, but i am no doormat. Of course, i absolutely push it when i use no sunscreen. So, yes, from this cream the mattifying effect and sunscreen should be best for me. I could add my woes about my errant dark circles pretending that concealer is just a mere mortal and appear suddenly when my concealer has relaxed.. A visibly upset raccoon somewhere is missing his dark circles. So, yeah add that.

  11. With summers comes the time of the year when my skin is prone to a few eruptions. Though having blessed with a decent combination skin, the heat and the pollution still take its toll on my skin. My skin tend to lose its brightness and to add icing to the cake, I am not getting any younger. No matter how i dress up or apply makeup, my skin has started showing the aging. Those fine lines, those puffed eyes, discolouration at places. The new BB cream can help me feel young again as it evens the tones of the skin and adds brightness. It can also conceal those eruptions making my skin look even and smooth. And the best part would be that while the BB cream is doing all these fabulous favours to my skin, it would also hydrate it which is very essential to make your skin beautiful from the inside and not just outside. I can’t wait to get my hands on the new BB cream. It is the only solution to all the skin ailments together.

  12. For me, its gotto be the following benefit:

    – Smoothes : Cause the weather is just to harsh on my skin.

    – Instantly brightens: Who doesn’t need brightening in their lives?!?!?

    – Protects with SPF 21/ PA+++ : India and Sun protection goes hand in hand … Surya devta is extra dayal on us!

    – Hydrates: Summers are here … our skin needs hydrating too!! :-))

  13. I decided to do a lil poem to respond to this. (sorry bout the silliness. Guess having a toddler at home n listening to nursery rhymes all day does take its toll on you. :p)

    This cream looks so cute and girly,
    With all the goodness to make you lovely.
    Its a moisturiser, foundation and concealer all in one
    It even gives you protection from the sun.
    Take it with you wherever you go,
    Using it will give you an instant glow.
    I really really wanna win this cream
    Coz having an even skin tone has always been a dream.

    So yeah I guess I’m sold on the “evens skin tone” bit.

  14. I have just recently got married and suddenly my skin is no longer that pretty as it used to be. I don’t know whether it is because of some cosmetics’ reactions, or because of changing cities.. or just because of some hormonal changes. But yes that has put me in a place where I want almost all the eight benefits of BB cream. I have read all beauty bloggers raving about its benefits. I hope this would work for me too. :)

  15. The most helpful benefit would be “Protects with SPF 21/PA++”
    . This is because I have a field job and hence a cream with so much to give, with the added benefit of a sunscreen would be awesome.

  16. I would use BB cream for
    – Evens tones
    – Protects with SPF 21/ PA+++
    as m heading towards my late twenties and i need to take care my skin tone to remain uniform and unpigmented :)

  17. For me it has to..has to be the fact that it evens out my skin tone and behaves as a good sunblock.. I am an active person and am out in the sun for long hours. So, I guess the cream will be the best option for me.:)

  18. The following benefits would be most useful for my skin:
    – Hydrates: Because then I can let go of my day cream.
    – Mattifies: this is awesome as most other creams lack this.
    – Protects with SPF 21/ PA+++: this is a must must must.
    – Conceals:
    – Freshens:Who does not like a little freshness:-).

    Because: Currently I put on a day cream after my face wash. Then a sunscreen that makes my face glow like an oily pan. Then to remove the oily feel, I dab a bit of Mac face powder. I can let go of all the 3 cosmetics above with this one cream. I don’t really use a concealer daily but if it is an added benefit in the same cream, I would love it.

    – Instantly brightens: This would be a bonus as I currently do not use any product that instantly brightens my skin.

    – Evens tones: because with age my skin is showing pigmentation.

    I think it would be great to try something like this.

  22. A Fresh and Hydrated skin is always a pleasure to have..
    And, to protect my skin from the scorching heat of the summer, SPF 21/PA+++ is a boon :)

  23. I’m an engineering student.So the hectic schedule and all nighters have taken a toll on my skin.Any stress will always so show first on my skin.To make it worst,I have an oily skin.If not pampered,I get breakouts.
    Hence,this product will solve all my skin issues.
    Right from hiding those dark circles to an instant glow to shine proof to sun protection,BB cream does it all.

  24. The hydrating effect will be most helpful for me as I’ve got extremely dry skin. This BB cream keeps the skin moisturized for 8 hours, which will work wonders on my skin. I’m in college and I have to constantly go to the washroom for applying moisturizer. This spoils my make0up as well. Now with BB, I wouldn’t have to sneak out to the washroom to apply moisturizing cream and reapply make-up. I can say goodbye to the dryness and itching as well ;)

  25. I would want to get an even skin colour. Studying in University means walking…walking a LOT. This makes my skin tanned. If the cream makes my skin tone even..it would be awesome :)

  26. Hydration n sunscreen protection
    I have a very dry skin n m constantly on the lookout of a moisture which isn’t plastered on my face but helps for my skin to look moist n soft. Because I have my face covered n recovered over n over again with a moisturiser, a sunscreen always felt like an added task. I hope this cream helps
    Btw kudos to maybelline for launching this product :)

  27. I have skin that tans easily, breaks out easily, and is also oily, which makes me chary of using makeup as such. I have a scar on my face from surgery, too. Nothing major, but I’m tired of explaining to people that no, that will not go away. Being able to cover it up feels like an excellent idea.
    This product sounds like a dream. I’d love to try it.

  28. ‘Instantly brightens’ will be the most useful feature for me because due to my hectic lifestyle and everyday travelling my skin is very dull and no cream has worked at brighten it up yet!

  29. The benefits that would be the most helpful to me are the same that would help any 28 yr old working Mumbai girl who has to commute long distances to work everyday. I feel the need to protect my skin from dust and pollution at the same time look presentable when i reach my workplace. Here are my top 3 benefits:

    1) Protects with SPF 21/ PA+++ – As I commute everyday for 2 hours and my skin needs to be protected against the sun
    2) Conceals – As I have tiny pigmentation on my face and it will help me in concealing these spots and make my skin look flawless
    3) Hydrates – As my skin is naturally dry and needs daily moisturisation

  30. Finally, a cream that does just about everything for your skin. It really is perfect for Indian women. And other than the brightening part (I’m dusky and I wouldn’t want to change that) everything else sounds so promising! I especially like the fact that it evens skin tone and keeps your skin looking fresh and flawless. It is perfect for a busy corporate professional like me who hates to wear make-up. I still haven’t tried it but my friends swear by it and it definitely sounds like it could be a part of daily skincare routine!

  33. OMG its so difficult…its like a fairy godmother’s magic wand in case what it claims really works.

    I find all its 8 benefits are equally good but i would pick the freshens and brightens instantly benefits for the creeping summers of Delhi. Long work hrs and stress dulls the skin and makes one look tired after a while so would find this extremely useful at work.

  34. Thought all the 8 reasons are enough to get this cream, the fact that it hydrates and mattifies the skin at the same time is a good enough for me to invest in it. Given indian summers and oily skin tones, I generally use a moisturizer and then a calamine on top. I would love to just have 1 product that gives me all that I need.

  35. I am a very hard working proffesional. When I reach office in the morning …I am ll bright and glowing but by afternoon the work and stress takes the toll and starts showing up on my face. My face looks tired and dull. I need a product which can instantly brighten my face so that when I look in the mirror I feel good and confident. Would love to try the BB creme :)

  36. -Protects with SPF 21 : In today’s age one of the most disaster causing agent for skin is sun-rays. Since this cream has SPF, it will help in avoiding sun’s damaging effects.
    -Mattifies : I lurrrrrveeee matte effect. My skin has the problem of becoming oily too fast.
    -Hydrates : Who doesn’t want a fresh looking hydrated skin feeling? The more hydrated it is, the fresher it looks. With an 8hrs job, this cream is heaven-sent.
    -Conceals : I have few light pimple marks on my face. Since they are light, i don’t need a heavy concealer and this BB cream is just perfect.

  37. oooohh this seems like just what i need ! my skin has pigmentation…but problem is it aint dark enough for the dermatologist to help me, but not light enough to be ignored ! tried enough creams n salon sessions, this one mark on the right cheek stays n worse still, glows in the sun ! :( :( plus with a sensitive dry skin, make-up doesnt work…so this cream could come in handy as my on-the-move-CONCEALER!
    m gonna buy this one anyways…was just debating whether to try it or not, but with ur endorsement…guess i should just go ahead ! :)
