Budget busting BB creams

I’m not sure about you, but I’m a busy woman. When it comes to skincare routines I don’t tend to have a vast amount of time.  Washing, moisturising, primer, foundation, exhausting. So when I heard about BB Creams, I couldn’t wait to try them out.

I had heard about 3 particular brands, so I was keen to try them out. The three I tried were Garnier BB cream, Maybelline BB Cream and Superdrug own Brand BB cream.

Garnier BB cream

A thick cream which seemed to cover up a multitude of sins, this cream is one for days when your skin is feeling dehydrated, or you have one blemish too many.  Be warned it is rather thick so should be applied sparingly. 6/10

Superdrug BB cream.

I have to say, for a own brand cream this really is a winner. It is a 5 in 1 BB cream which contains primer, moisturiser, a concealer and a foundation, and the shades and texture of the cream are light, allowing your skin to breathe. The only thing which disappointed me about this brand was the lack on suncream. Factor is an important element of skin care routine (I wear factor 50 every day!)  so if you are claiming to be an all in one cream then SPF should really be part of the equasion. 7/10

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream

Maybelline has the edge when it comes to numbers. The 8 in 1 cream hydrates all day, blurs imperfections, contains an SPF 30, and complements skin tone. It is a nice colour and this one really does last all day. Light and airy, this cream also doesn’t feel so heavy on the skin. 9/10
