Though I could spend hours browsing the shimmering aisles of Sephora, I am not usually one to change up my beauty products…until I found BB Cream. “BB” stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm. Primer, skin care, moisturizer, and skin-perfecting light coverage all in one little bottle. I tested 4 popular brands:
Thumbs Up: For starters, the price – it’s from Target so it’s significantly less expensive than the others. This BB cream felt super lightweight and provides the perfect coverage for daywear.
Thumbs Up: Subtle shimmer. I thought that I wouldn’t like the shimmer but it gives your skin a really pretty glow. Applies nicely and gives wonderful, long-lasting coverage.
Thumbs Up: Great for spot coverage (under your eyes, any blemishes). I didn’t love it for my entire face – this cream is a little thicker than the others.
Thumbs Up: Goes on super smoothly and is very hydrating. Downside: this BB cream only comes in one color and was a little too “orange” for me.
Overall fave: TooFaced! Runner Up (and perfect for summer days at the beach): Garnier.
