6 in 1 Comparison Review: BB Creams for EVERY Budget!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to share my thoughts on some of the BB Creams that are currently flooding the market at the moment. I have thrown in two tinted moisturisers because in the West BB Creams are essentially the same product, repackaged.

So, starting with the most affordable: 17 All-in-One-Magic-Makeup. This offers a low to medium coverage and an SPF of 15. They have now brought out an updated version that contains SPF 25 and claims to ‘Improve your skin in just 4 weeks’. Hmmm not sure about that! This is good for people on a budget who still want a quality product.

Secondly we have Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB. This has a lower coverage more glossy finish on the skin, is a dream to apply and feels amazing all day. This offers a very generous SPF of 30. s great for dry-skinned people who have good skin that just needs enhancing and evening out. This is my personal favourite from the high street/drugstore.

Thirdly is the L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream. This is a strange formula containing beads that release their pigment when blended onto the skin. This only has an SPF of 12. It offers very low coverage but does a great job of making the skin look even and bright with a very natural, skin-like finish. This would be good for someone with a more normal-combo skin because of the more matte texture.

Fourth up is the Water Fuse BB Cream by Dr Jart. I love this BB Cream because it has an SPF of 25 is amazing for dry skin, at 50mls is great value for money and offers medium, beautiful coverage. There is only one shade so won’t suit everyone.

Now for the tinted moisturisers...!

First up we have the No7 Triple Protection TM. This offers both UVB protection of 15 and 5 star UVA protection. This gives low coverage with a lovely dewy finish.

And Last but on least we have the Laura Mercier TM. I like this one because it offers slightly more coverage than an average tinted moisturiser and leaves the skin with a semi-matte finish. This comes with an SPF of 20 and comes in a massive amount of shades but this is massively over-priced at an eye-watering £33.

  2. -Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she's beautiful but don't have anything to talk about, it's going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person.

  3. Very helpful post! Its great to compare like products together!
