BB Cream for Acne Prone Skin

on Apr 17, 2012 @ 10:02 am

Could somebody recommend a BB Cream for acne prone skin? :)
I've never tried BB Cream and i'm intrigued!
But with pale, acne prone skin, finding makeup for my skin that won't cause breakouts is difficult :/

Same Skin Issues! on Apr 17, 2012 @ 10:26 am

I have the same skin issues, don't worry!

Right now, I am using LaNeige BB Cream because it has an SPF of 45 which is so essential for your skin. Otherwise, I use Garnier's BB Cream and I have used Marcelle's BB Cream and M Missha BB Cream. As far as clogging pores or causing acne, I haven't had any issues as of yet, with any of these. This overview of a few different BB creams is pretty helpful: If you are looking for a BB Cream that would help to solve acne issues, I think your best bet would be to look for an Asian one, not North American.


Oops- forgot this one... on Apr 17, 2012 @ 10:34 am

I just came across this bb cream it contains peach extract and sake to help control sebum (i.e the acne causer)


Very informative! :) on Apr 17, 2012 @ 11:49 am

Thanks so much! That overview is a great information resource! :)
I love the idea of a cream containing an SPF 45! So smart!
Also I had no idea peach extract was good for acne, so thanks for that info!
I'm always up for learning more about ways to prevent breakouts! :)

Thanks! on Apr 17, 2012 @ 12:51 pm

Alex, you rock. Thanks for this! This thread's topic was totally my fear (thanks for bringing it up sirenstarlight !). I just commented this morning that BB creams seem so fast/easy except for needing both a good SPF and not aggravating acne-prone skin. Thanks for the insights!

Great info on Apr 17, 2012 @ 01:03 pm

Alex that link is so helpful!! Thanks!! I can't wait to try some out, I don't have acne prone skin but I have sensitive skin and it's just as hard to shop for and buy creams for, let alone a BB cream.

Thank you on May 06, 2012 @ 02:03 pm
