Recently I shared the favorite foundations of my beauty blogging friends, today I'm sharing their BB and CC Creams! I admit that I rarely use a full foundation now, I just love the ease of combining multiple steps into one product. A great cream can be your daily lotion, SPF, anti-aging serum, foundation and sometimes even concealer! It's a huge time saver for this mommy.
"I also love Missha's BB Creams (1, get it here), which give skin a gorgeous finish and stellar coverage."
- Sheila Arkee from Painted Ladies
"Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream (1, get it here). This is one of the original BB creams and has been around for ages. Unlike some products that slap on the BB label and are really nothing more than tinted moisturizers, this is the real deal. It covers imperfections, adds in anti-aging ingredients, and has a high SPF."
- Carleen from Beauty and Fashion Tech
"One of my faves is Amarté Natural Finish BB Cream SPF 36 (2, get it here). It has a lovely, satin finish that adds a subtle healthy-skin glow without the unwanted shine and the formula provides medium buildable coverage that evens out my complexion beautifully and covers up most of the imperfections."
- Harshleen from BeautyTidbits
"I have very sensitive skin with a bit of rosacea so when I found one that my skin likes, I stick with it. I use CoverGirl Smoothers BB Cream (3, get it here). It is not high enough SPF for outdoor activities but its perfect for workdays and errands."
- Deb from No-Nonsense Beauty Blog
"Currently my favorite BB Cream is the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment (4, get it here). This multi-tasking BB Cream helps create the appearance of natural-looking, flawless skin, as it contains a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, anti-aging treatment, and sunscreen."
- Christina-Lauren from Inspirations & Celebrations
"Cover FX BB Gel (5, get it here)."
- Nidia from Lit From Within
"Cover FX CC Cream (6, get it here). It provides the perfect amount of coverage for me and looks amazing when applied with a damp beauty blender. I wear shade N-Light mixed with Face Atelier Zero Minus Ultra Foundation (, get it here) for a perfect shade match."
- Courtney from Phyrra
"IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50 (7, get it here) - This CC cream offers buildable, medium to full coverage with a dewy finish that I love! It takes care of any redness and my acne scars or dark spots almost completely without looking like I’m wearing a ton of makeup."
- Harshleen from BeautyTidbits
"IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ (7, here)."
- Jessika from Polish Insomniac
"I like the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (8, get it here). It's light, more like a tinted moisturizer, but gives good coverage and is buildable."
- Danielle from The Mani-ac
"My favorite bb cream is Garnier Skin Renew in light/medium (9, get it here or here). That stuff's amazing, and the only foundation type product I wear. I've never been into true foundations and it took me a while to accept tinted moisturizers, even, but this is light, natural, and never cakey. I don't know how close it is to the original Asian bb creams but for this gal, it's perfect."
- Liesl from Liesl Loves Pretty Things
"I don't use foundation - but if I am looking to use a BB Cream, Garnier BB Cream (9, get it here) is a favorite. I've tried a few others, but find they often do not go well against my skin tone."
- Honeygirl from Honeygirl's World
"This is a tough one since I really like a lot of BB formulas. I would have to say my favourite is Kiehl's Skin Tone Correcting & Beautifying BB Cream with SPF 50 (10, get it here), but I also really like Dior's Diorskin Nude BB Creme (12, get it here)."
Sandra D. from Mom's Makeup Stash
"I'm obsessed with the Pond's BB Cream (11, get it here). It has quite a bit of coverage for a BB Cream, but it is super easy to use! I can just smear it on my face and let it sink in while I dry my hair. I barely need to blend it at all, and the finish is pretty flawless."
