Awhile back a makeup artist at work turned me on to BB Cream.  I’d never heard of it but she said she recently started using it on herself and celebrities.  I did a little research and found that BB Cream, or Beauty Balm had been used in Asia for decades.  During that time I started seeing the Garnier commercial for their version and threw it in my cart as an impulse buy the next time I was at Target.

I started using it right away and was so impressed by the dewy glow it gave my skin.  It’s similar to a tinted moisturizer but provides a little more coverage without the caked-on look of foundation.  And the bonus?  It has built-in SPF and works to improve your skin while you wear it.

My makeup artist friend told me her favorite was Smashbox so I decided to try it as well.  While it’s pricier than Garnier it still gives off the dewy glow but leaves your face looking less shiny after a few hours.

Here are some more options – in every price point.

SKIN79 – $3

O’slee Rosehip – $17

Clinique – $37

Sulwhasso – $60

Let me know which one is your favorite!
