Top 5 BB Creams

Hey guys!

BB creams became really big a few years ago and they’ve stuck around. They’re perfect if you’re having a good skin day or just don’t feel like wearing that much make-up! I wear BB cream to school most days, so here are a couple that I have tried and tested.

 Rimmel- 9-in-1
This is probably my joint favourite BB cream that I have tried. It gives good coverage plus it has SPF, which is definitely something I look for whenever I buy makeup.

Body Shop- Tea Tree
The most appealing thing about this BB cream is the tea tree. Make-up that also is good for your skin? I’m so in! And it give good coverage too!

Garnier- Miracle Skin Perfecter
This is my other favourite BB cream. I think it might have been the first BB cream I ever tried and I still think it’s great. However it is quite oily so I always wear it with powder on top, though there is an oil free version I must try!

NYC- Smooth Skin
NYC is a good option if you’re on a low budget. It’s quit watery so it doesn’t give very good coverage but it still does the job!

Maybelline- Dream Fresh
I’m not even sure if they make this anymore cause this is an old empty tube that is still in my makeup drawer for some reason. I do remember really liking this though. I think the coverage was medium-ish but gave that “I’m not wearing make-up I just have flawless  skin” look that BB creams should have.

 So those are some BB creams that I like. If you know of any hidden gems, please let me know in the comments!

Have a fabolulu day!

  5. I have tried the Maybelline and Garnier BB cream. I totally agree with you in saying that the Garnier one is rather oily. I think I should try the Body Shop one next since it contains Tea Tree oil which is amazing for those with acne prone skin. xx
