  • Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have a love hate relationship with this product. I love the brand, and the fact that it's hypoallergenic and doesn't clog pores, plus the fact that there's a mineral sunscreen in here (I'm allergic to the chemical ones). That being's not really a bb powder, and operates more like a very light foundation setting powder? There's not much coverage, and God forbid you forget to moisturize because this thing will settle in your lines. I use it after setting spray to give some extra coverage and shine control, but it's not really mattifying. Plus it smells a little like dirt after wearing it around for a day...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fan of this one... I gave stellar reviews for the other 2 BB products, but I just don't feel like this one is even in the same class. The range of people that the two colors offered will work for is so tiny because powders are much less forgiving than creams. Also, the powder does have a shimmery finish. This is not going to work for people with oily skin. After applying all three products, I felt like I looked 20 years older with caked on makeup. However, when I simply applied the BB cream and concealer with a light dusting of sheer mineral powder, it looked awesome. Considering the quality of the BB cream and the concealer, I feel like this product is superfluous and unnecessary. PF already makes some nice mineral powders that would compliment the cream better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is fragrance free and safe for sensitive skin and an amazing powder! This can be worn alone for just a natural running errands type day and blur imperfections, pores and discoloration. Its is so soft and lightweight and stays put all day. This is an incredible powder. I love the soft fresh look this gives my skin. This seriously gives you the my skin but better type look. It makes you look flawless and not cakey. I enjoy this! The packaging is eye catching and sturdy as well. I love keeping this powder in my purse. It comes in handy. I recommend trying this. #InfluensterAwards2020

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using this product for years! It covers up acne well doesn't feel greasy at all and is my favourite makeup product to use! Not heavy at all. It looks so natural! I love that its sold at walmart. I will continue to use this forever as it holds up all day long. Only problem is hugging people it comes off on their clothes which is embarrasing. Also near the end of the product it is likely to crack and spill everywhere. I throw out the applicator thats free in the mirrored compact and use a sponge to appy it. Also the shade selection is very poor as it lacks a lot of shades

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love the product, not the packaging Let me start by saying this is my favorite powder I've ever found. I do not use the small brush that comes in it because I feel it cakes it on too heavy, so I use a different one and it works great. My problem is, every time I take one of these in my makeup bag, they break!! It is not like I'm dropping it or slamming it around at all, they just aren't meant to be carried around I guess. Pretty sad because it's my favorite but I've already purchased 3 and all 3 have broke after about 4 uses.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great for my purposes I was looking forward to trying my first Physicians Formula product. This looked perfect, a 3 in one pressed powder. A great idea to have a mirror in the compact with a place for the brush. A great way to be portable with everything together. I was disappointed when the first time I put this in my makeup bag, it disintegrated into a crumbled mess in my bag. I cannot open the compact at all without the powder spilling all over everything. It will not leave my bathroom counter any longer, and I will have to find something else to take on the go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I bought all 3 bb products today! I used the cream, concealor and then the powder. I got light/medium. Hated the little tiny brush it came sure to use a big fluffy brush to dust on. Dont go to heavy...a light dusting on nose, chin cheeks and forehead are all you need. It stays put and sets your face. I then used a smashbox blush as I couldnt find any bb blush! No irritation on any 3 and my face is sensitive...combo oily/dry. Didnt settle in any lines or wrinkles but I really dont have to many of them anyway!! All in all it was a great purchase...try it..stop putting it off.....using all 3 really makes your facial skin look smooth and satiny and flawless. Smells odor as far as I could smell. Loved having it on but not having that cakey made up look that I hate. Thanks PF love you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best powder I have ever used This powder covers like a full coverage foundation, makes my skin look so smooth and has an spf of 30! It calms my oily skin so it just has a nice dewy glow and covers acne almost instantly .This is the best make up I ever tried. It just needs to come in more shades and be sold at more stores. It is a tad dark for me, but I still use it because the formulation is so great. Physicians Formula, I'm telling you, with more shades and a availability this would go viral.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs Lighter Shade I bought both this product and the BB cream and I am sorry to say that both products were way too dark and way too orange. I tried to use them both seperately and thought this one might be okay but it oxidiased on my skin and just turned out looking wrong". That's a shame too because, other than becoming too dar, it felt nice and wore really well. If they come out with a truely neutral fair shade, I would try it again."""

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened to MEDIUM/DARK?? This was my favorite powder, ever. I hoarded several of them and they lasted for a couple of years. Now I want to replenish, and I find out Medium/Dark is no longer available! I have medium, olive skin, and I'm always disappointed by Physicians Formula. Do they want only pale customers? This powder is wonderful if you have fair-light skin. I highly recommend it for those people. Sadly, I can't use it anymore.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Impressed I just bought this product and on first use, the tiny brush that comes in the bottom of the compact, scratched and cut my face. Not impressed at all. I have bought other products in the past and had no problem with the larger bristled brush. From reading other reviews, it sounds like an amazing product and i will buy a larger powder brush and give it another try, but that takes away from my idea of keeping a small compact in my purse. Might want to rethink the tiny scratchy brush. Wont be recommending it until that changes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! This powder has such a wonderful light feel and gives an airbrushed look when buffed with a big fluffy brush. When I need a little extra coverage I use a puff to press it. Not a fan of the brush that comes with it. It has worked great with every foundation that I have used and even great alone. The coverage is light to medium. If it became a little cakey, spraying a setting spray calmed it down. My only con is that some have broken easily. I have about 4 right now and one broke into pieces before the box was even opened.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Makeup ever for coverage! I am 64 and have severe sun damage and spider veins and this powder covers them all. It even helps with my dark circles under my eyes. I've even been stopped in stores and told I had the most beautiful complexion! It not only gives great coverage but it minimizes pores and gives UV protection which I really need living in Florida. I hope they never quit making this product. It is amazing. I use the medium/deep. I have average skin-not too oily or too dry. It does not cause extra dryness like some products do.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from does bb" stand for "burnt brownish"?" I wanted to like this makeup, I really did. I read so many positive reviews, especially about how it stays on in the summer heat and how it plays well with oily skin (my skin is an oil slick both summer and winter). However...I am what they used to classify as a "Winter"; I have very pale skin with pinkish/bluish undertones, grey/blue eyes, and brownish-red hair that is turning white. There's not a bit of yellow or orange on me anywhere. I look terrible in anything that features those shades. I bought this in Light/Medium and it is WAY too orange on my face. I tried it on my neck as well, and on my wrist, just to make sure I wasn't seeing things or being tricked by the light. Nope...Light/Medium is SUPER orange and WAY too dark for me. I wish PF would make useful shades, and something for everyone instead of trying for a "one shade fits all" goal. I didn't even mind that this was a little shimmery. I wanted to like it but I had to return it to the store.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Orange tint I normally have good luck with Physician Formula eye makeup, but was disappointed with this product. I got the light/medium shade and it ended up being way too dark. I wouldn't recommend this product for anyone with "light" skin. It also had an orange tint to it. I was not impresses

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best powder over expensive brands Ive used Chanel This powder covers with one sweep and makes your skin look flawless. I am 60 years old with some discoloration like age spots and I can use a little concealer and not use base makeup and just a light dusting of this powder and get beautiful coverage

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this product for years. Recently switched not because I didn’t like it I just wanted to try something new. Might go back to this because i love the coverage of this powder and how natural it looks. It is great quality for the price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is overall pretty great. Got this shade because I am a shade light in the [product:it-cosmetics-your-skin-but-bettertm-cctm-cream-with-spf-50] , however this shade was WAY too orange for me. In fact, it became my shade for when I spray tan. I love the coverage and glow of this foundation, I just wish that there was a wider color range. It came in a set at Christmas with the [product:physicians-formula-super-bbtm-all-in-1-beauty-balm-powder-spf-30] , and they pair very very nicely.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good coverage I don’t always wear make up and I wanted something lighter than foundation. This is perfect, I’m gettin spf protection and coverage at the same time. It covers more than I thought and it also protects my skin. I wear it at morning and when I came home from work it was still there without having to retouched it. With some lipgloss, mascara and iluminator it looks like I have a natural look but also I don’t have to cover my face with foundation, this did it all!!! New favorite product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Product but not very thick cake of powder. Bought 3 weeks ago and though the one I bought last year lasted all that time this one was a very thin cake of powder and cracked into pieces right away. I love all the other products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely adore Super BB Balm Powder! I can't rave enough about how much I love using this product. I am not a heavy makeup wearer and this BB powder is perfect for my daily routine. Amazing coverage, blends well with my skin tone, gives a very natural look while covering up minor imperfections. Long lasting and wears well all day, I don't even feel like I'm even wearing anything on my face. Even on my more tired" looking days I can count on this Super BB powder to give me a fresh and bright looking face."

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchase this super BB powder by Physicians Formula from our local CVS store. It is a all-in-one Beauty balm powder with SPF 30 broad spectrum sunscreen. I really love this product. I use it everyday , after applying my foundation I use a brush and swipe this all over my face. It helps to set my makeup and I find that it helps with my oiliness throughout the day. I paid around $12 for it and it will last me several months. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new BB! After having an allergic reaction to other make up products I decided I had to make a complete change. So I threw out almost all the make up I own and bought only what I considered essential from the Physician's Formula line. I was very pleased with the BB powder. It has a great light feel which leaves a great subtle shimmer on my skin. My only gripe is that the powder is so delicate. You have to use a light touch when running the brush over it. I do not recommend carrying the compact in your purse because you might end up popping the powder loose in the compact and end up with a mess. I accidentally hit my compact and the powder cracked and became loose from the compact. And although the brush is soft I think a rounded brush will give you better control when applying the product. You really don't need much to get great results.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Impressed I'm reading all these reviews and can't help but to think they are all bogus. I tried this"Super BB Powder" and it isn't light and velvety as some of the other people claim. This powder claims to minimize the appearance of pores, but does not. It is super heavy and actually makes your imperfections more noticeable. I've had better experiences with their other products, and would NOT recommend this one. PF, come up with a better marketing scheme.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This powder is super full coverage from the get go! On lazy days, I just apply moisturizer & apply one layer of this to hide discolorations and it actually conceals quite well! Wouldnt suggest this to set your face since it seems a bit heavier, but as a free standing powder, I do rely on it as a one & done powder. I do find that the shade is darker than my actual skin tone and am not sure if it oxidizes upon application or if its a bit too dark for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute packaging and it’s a light weight powder that will set your face and get the job done. It does have glitter in it so it’s definitely not a matte powder. I like it and will use it on days I’m doing a very light face of makeup just to use it all up so it’s not wasted. I will not be repurchasing this though but this is perfect for pre teen/teen beginners who are looks for something that looks high end but with a smaller price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Migrating to PF for good! I don't write reviews, simply because there are rarely any products that wow me enough to even recommend to a friend let alone take the time write a review?. But, I am wowed. After spending $30 on Bare Minerals original loose powder and being utterly disappointed, I picked this up at CVS as a quick backup before returning the BM. Let me just say this? it looked AMAZING when I first put it on, and even after I went to church and shouted! and then came home and gardened and ran errands in 90 degree weather, my face still looked amazing! And I naturally produce a lot of oil but it looked matte all day. It even helped keep my eyeliner in check without a primer. I'm so impressed. And best of all, my skin actually felt BETTER after taking it off. I usually can never say that since I have very sensitive, acne-prine skin. Can't wait to try BB bronzer next. :)

    Can you use this without primer since BB powders are basically a 5 in one product.

    Asked by: Brianne24
    Yes, you can use this without primer. I personally use the BB powder without any primer. Sometimes, I’ll use a little bit of their liquid foundation before finishing up with this powder. I hope this helps you!
