BB Creams: What are they?

I'd be interested to hear some reviews by Chelsey readers about BB creams - brands, effectiveness, cost, etc.

I've never tried any, but I'm going to have to head to the shops - would be good to get one for summer when normal foundation always feels (and looks) a bit too heavy. Keen for any recommendations too...

I've tried just the cheap supermarket Garnier BB creme and it's really great. Perfect for when you don't want to wear full on makeup!


Awesome substance material and extraordinary format. Your site merits the majority of the positive input it's been getting. assisted living in glenview

This is super helpful! I really want to try a BB cream but all the ones that are for sale in NZ are not very good, I have heard that the Lioelle Triple the Solution, with can be purchased on Ebay is really good. So this is the one I will be trying. Check out reviews on YouTube if you are not sure which ones to try.
