We all have to face a lot of chaos on our skin due to the change in skin tone between our face, neck and hands. That’s when BB creams come into the picture, as foundations are not possibly used as a daily wear, BB cream gives us a subtle and long lasting impact on a non make up makeup look, and also protects our skin  from dullness and patchiness! 

I would love to share with you, to the best of my knowledge, which BB cream should be used as this needs to be validated properly!

About Product :

“RULE THE WORLD! – ONE LOOK AT A TIME” has shortly described the whole work of sugar cosmetics. I personally love this brand as its products are long lasting and the pigmentation is to another level. And any BB cream should have a long lasting pigmentation because that’s the subtle product which bears the whole look. This BB cream is extremely weightless, and you might not even feel it on your face. Its suitable features make it to be on our list.

Product Features :

  • Daily purpose can’t bear heaviness and that’s possible with this BB cream. They hide all the imperfections like eye bags, spots, patchy texture, red marks and more,and that’s needed right? 
  • This sugar BB cream can do multiple tasking and that’s why it’s worth every penny you invest in it. It can be a primer, a foundation, a moisturiser and a sun screen, all at once ! 
  • It’s packaging is simple and beneficial, can fit anywhere,  and they can be applied with bare hands so you needn’t use a brush or sponge
  • The prime focus of it is that it can blend really well with your natural skin tone, hence it leaves no patches, and they provide an overall natural look with no harsh effects and they give smoothness and softness to the skin.

Pros : Cons :
Supreme SPF 30 formula Expensive
Suitable for all Skin types Less quantity
Lasts really long
Natural coverage
Matte, oil free look

About Product :

Maybelline has been a common product I would say, as many do not have much insights about so many brands out there, but Maybelline is known to all. This BB cream has been a spectacular giver as they have lasted longer than expected. It contains enough SPF 30 which can be applied on summer seasons as well. Because it might have the least chance of wearing it off.

Maybelline covers the best profile and covers the decent outlooks which it needs to.

Product Features :

  • Unlike the above BB cream, the packaging is completely different here. A metallic pink color is used for the cover which holds the white- beige tube downwards.
  • This is more of an independent product as it can be applied with or without the base of a moisturizer. They contain 5 different shades ranging from medium to deep.
  • This has a mild fragrance to it, and it seemed to be very creamy,so you can trust the consistency. It’s blending very soon and stays for a long time. 
  • There are soft undertones to it as well, while the dark tones contain orange-yellowish undertones, the medium one contains pink undertone.
  • They seem to be perfectly portable, they do not contain any kinds of toxins, hence you can have a sigh of relief !

All That You Need To Know About BB Creams

Sure! You know for a fact that BB creams are used by all, and one keeps referring to it to be a minimalistic choice in general, but are you aware of the basics, and how it is differentiated from the rest?, or on what basis it is categorized? Let’s make it simple for you ! 

What Are BB Creams?

To keep it simple, BB stands for “Beauty Balm” or “Blemish Balm”. It is a short and a simple alternative from the foundation which clearly concentrates for frequent and regular usage. It is basically very light, and covers for all skin tones. 

How Is It Different From CC cream?

Well for the starters, CC stands for “Colour Control” or “Complexion Corrector”. Many think it’s the same as BB cream but they are highly mistaken. BB is more of the higher level of a moisturizer, it’s like a tinted moisturizer, with added benefits as a makeup corrector. It gives a detailed matte finish too, and CC cream is heavier and can be kept next to a  foundation.

What's A Foundation Then ?

Foundations are meant for a proper make up coverage. It is rich in pigments compared to both BB and CC and they are on the more anti – subtle side.

So in ascending order its BB – CC – foundation. 

Hence for regular usage, minimal look, for very light days, and mostly for no makeup up, makeup look. It’s a great option for a touch up look.

Here Are The Few Places You Can Use BB Creams

  • Office routines : 

Tired of dull morning faces? No worries when you just apply BB cream, a slight lip balm or a nude lip colour  and your preferred hair accessory and voila! You’ll look fresh and presentable for a long day ahead.

  • BB on a Beach : 

You need to get out for a beach day and you would want to click pictures, and BB creams would compliment your salted and frizzy hair and your nail paints will highlight with its even skin tone.

  • Skin breathing : 

Just like a detox for your body, there must be a day for detoxing your skin. But you might not always stay at home when you are planning to leave your skin breathing. That’s when you use a moisturizer and a BB cream, as you need coverage under your eyes and on your T-zpne

  • Pajama party : 

Life is merrier with best friends and a crazy night with them. Planning for a soiree with just good old classic films, lots of wine, and lots of food? Jump into your bed, and look sassy with a minimalistic look from a BB cream. 

  • Impromptu Date Nights :

Caught off-guard with a surprise date night? Fret not! Even if you have just a few mins to spare, put on your best face with a BB creak and a soft lipstick and you are good to go!

 

Conclusion

This should be a compulsory product on “What’s in your bag?” a game which is famous these days. Just like how tinted lip balms are slightly better than lip balms, BB creams are much more classier than moisturizers. But you need to have both to complete your look. Make sure you add in natural ingredients into your skin, as it’s equally important to breathe and not cause skin damage which can cause permanent damage to your skin. That’s the minimum you can do. Stay healthy, stay healed, and stay hydrated !

Best BB Cream - FAQs

1. What is the choice for daily use?

A nice BB cream is preferred but you can opt for a moisturizer or CC too. CC only when you have a day with a heavy schedule.

2. Can I use BB everyday?

Definitely, it can be an excellent alternative for foundation, as it is heavily defined.

3. Should I moisturize before applying BB cream ?

If you have a dry skin, then follow it, otherwise BB contains enough to hold your skin.

4. Do you need to set BB cream with powder?

It’s okay to set or not to set. Either way it’s your choice of texture – matte or glossy. But you need a glossy look? Skip the powder then!

5. Can I wear BB cream alone?

Certainly as it’s loaded with multi purposes. They give a natural tint, and can fulfill the work of a moisturizer, a sunscreen, and a foundation.
