This edition of “Makeup Wars” has us discussing our favorite BB creams. As we all know, I love me some foreign beauty products, so it should come as no surprise that my favorite BB cream is a legit Asian BB cream. I say “legit” because the Asian BB creams contain a whitening formulation that the US brands don’t include, which I actually need this time of year because of my ruddy cheeks. It’s also a thicker formula, which is more moisturizing for me as the temperatures cool down.
And, just to be weird, this contains nail protein extract, which I have no clue how it’s beneficial, but they say it gives the skin “nascent energy”, and really, who doesn’t want *that* (*whatever that is). And since it’s from Asia, it’s going to be a pain to get here in the US, but if you want to hunt it down, it was around $25USD, as a point of reference.
But if you are curious what I use from the US, my go to lately has been the Maybvelline Dream Fresh BB. Like I said, this doesn’t contain a whitening agent, so it really acts like a tinted moisturizer to me, which is my preferred formula anyway. And, since it’s here in the US, it’s available just about everywhere you shop – big box, drugstore and online for less than $10USD.
Have you guys jumped on the BB cream wagon? What is your favorite one – and do you switch it up due to the weather/season? Or keep on going?
Now, go check out what the other gals have picked as their favorite BB cream:
