BB Creams: We Put Them to the Test!

Tinted formulas that are here to stay
In recent years, after a phenomenal success in Asia, all-in-one formulas have seen their popularity skyrocket on our side of the globe. After all, major cosmetic brands are competing to make the best BB cream which will moisturize and protect the skin for hours on end, all the while minimizing imperfections. Some even boast anti-aging ingredients! To find the best of the best, a few members of the editorial staff tested six of the latest tubes in this category, so check out our thoughts below!

BB Cream Multi-Action Beauty Balm
Coverage: It can replace foundation on those rushed mornings, for a near-flawless coverage.
The formula leaves skin supple, although some may prefer to use it alongside their daily moisturizer for optimum hydration.
It’s available in two shades, which are perfect for light, medium, and olive-skinned gals.
It has a light and creamy texture, and it goes on easy.
Notable mention:
the added SPF 15 is appreciated, particularly in the winter when many of us tend to skip the sun protection step from our beauty routine.

$16 in pharmacies.

La Roche-Posay
Hydréane BB Cream
Light and translucent.
Hydration: Strong, and absorbed well by the skin.
Tint: Two shades are offered, light and medium.
Texture: It has a lovely light texture, very similar to that of the original Hydréane moisturizer.
Notable mention: It’s ideal for gals with sensitive skin, who will be happy to have the added SPF 20. Its soft fragrance is also reminiscent of the original Hydréane moisturizer.
$29 in pharmacies.
