BB Cream vs CC Cream: My Favorite Products
My Favorite BB Cream – Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-in-1 Skin Perfector ($8.99)
This BB Cream has been with me for years, and when I say years, I really mean YEARS! This product was actually one of my first “foundation-like” products that I used when I started to use makeup regularly in high school. When it comes to other BB Creams that I’ve tried, this one is just complete perfection, hence why it has stayed with me through all of these years. Whenever I don’t feel like applying a full coverage foundation (which has been every time I do my makeup now), this is the product that I reach for. It provides a very sheer tint to the skin, but it is enough to even out your skin tone. When applied, this product looks super-natural, since you can still see your freckles and your skin peek through, but it also provides a nice light amount of coverage.
When looking at the benefits and claims of this product, it says that it will hydrate your skin, provide SPF (SPF 30), brighten, blur imperfections, smooth out your skin, enhance, is oil-free, and it also doesn’t contain any heavy ingredients. After using this product for so many years, I can honestly say that I’ve found all of these claims to be accurate and true. When it comes to my skin type, I have super oily skin which gets even more oily in the Florida humidity. This BB Cream has been so perfect for me, even with all of my oils (since it’s oil-free), but it also adds radiance to my skin so it looks super-natural.
I apply this product with my fingers when I want a super quick and light coverage finish, however, when I want a tiny bit more coverage I use a damp beauty sponge to apply it. Although this product on its own is perfect, I usually apply some sort of mattifying primer underneath and a setting powder on top of it, to really set it in place and ensure it lasts all day on my skin.
If you’re looking for a product that has tons of benefits for your skin, has SPF, provides a natural finish on your skin, has a light coverage, and is super easy to apply; then this product is definitely worth giving a shot!
