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!
