Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream

I received the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream in my Sunkissed Voxbox, unfortunately I don’t think it is available in the UK at the moment.  I pretty much wore this BB cream the entire time I was in states.  It worked perfectly in the hot weather and it has risen to the top of my favorite BB cream list.  It has currently replaced my Rimmel 9 in 1 BB cream (I found that bb cream would settle in the tops of my eyebrows by the end of the day sometimes, not a good look).

Have you tried Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream?  What is your go to makeup base in the hot weather months?
