DD Cream dermatologically defining bb cream with broad spectrum spf 30

I adore this DD cream, much like I adore all DermaDoctor products! This product does exactly what it says - blends into your skin tone (I have medium brown skin), deflects light, minimizes imperfections, and makes the skin glow. It has a light-medium coverage, so I definitely require concealer for eye circles and the darkest acne spots, but once those are taken care of it looks like I have a full face of makeup on. I wear DD cream on the weekends when I don't want wear foundation, and I just apply it with my fingertips. It does feel a little greasy initially but the texture once it absorbs is amazing. Also only a tiny amount is needed, so the container is quite large compared to other BB/CC creams.

The one downside to this product (and the reason it gets 4 stars) is that in my experience it does not work well as a foundation primer. When I wear it under foundation, my skin looks dry rather than dewy, and I think the makeup settles into fine lines. But this may be because I wear foundation with SPF 30, while the DD cream also has SPF. If you have decent skin that can be perfected with concealer in a few areas, I'd definitely recommend the DD cream as an alternative to foundation.
