So many bb creams

on Aug 22, 2012 @ 09:04 am

Yesterday I went to shoppers looking at BB creams but to my surprise almost every company makes one now.  The sales lady said she prefers Marcelle, what do you prefer?

I am pretty partial to the Garnier BB Cream but lately I have been using the GOSH one and I have to say, at first I wasn't all that impressed but as a tinted primer, it does the trick! It isn't as pigmented as some others that I have tried though. If you can get one though, I seriously recommend trying out some of the brands that come from Asia like La Neige or Missha.

Garnier's BB cream on Aug 22, 2012 @ 10:03 am

I've only tried the Garnier and the Marcelle BB cream, but I went back to Garnier's. I like it much better and its a lot cheaper. I'm not the type to go out and buy six different brands just to see witch one I like, so I won't be buying another one untile my Garnier runs out. Or until the shade is to dark for the winter months, witch ever comes first. I thought I heard that Garnier was coming out with a lot more shades, but I maybe mixing them up with another company. Your best bet would to be to try and get some samples. I've also heard that the brands from Asia are much better, most likely because this is were I believe BB cream came from in the first place.

Smashbox BB Cream on Aug 22, 2012 @ 02:35 pm

I haven't tried Garnier or Marcelle, I also saw L'Oreal came out with one of their own which I haven't tried either. I'm indian skin tone (olive skin tone? brown skin? meh know what I mean) so often drugstore foundations are too pink on me and make me look ashy. Which is why I went for Smashbox BB cream instead of trying out any of the drugstore alternatives. I continue to use the Smashbox BB Cream in Medium-Light daily and I love it.

First of all, it is really pigmented, goes on smoothly, blends evenly into my skin and doesn't oxydize (change colour) at all! I feel like it's a foundation that is good for your skin. It really gives a beautiful look, moisturized feel, and with SPF 35 you don't feel guilty exposing yourself to rays.

Second and last of all, I've noticed a dramatic improvement in my few pimple discoloration leftovers. What do you call those things? You know the little reddish brown spot that's left over on your face once the pimple is gone? It takes quite a bit to make me notice the difference in my skin (I'm always on the lookout of how bad I look / my skin looks so rarely notice the good). This really made a noticeable difference to those pimple spots. I don't get many pimples to begin with, but the few marks I have are lighter and I really think that's thanks to this BB cream.

Since I got the Smashbox BB Cream, many other companies have come out with theirs too. I've heard really good things about TwoFaced BB Cream, people who use it love it. I don't want to try that until I've finished my own but maybe that might be my next purchase.

Good luck with finding one that works for you! :-)
