Beauty editor, Stacy Edwards of Create Your Beauty magazine, is keen on Healthy Glow BB creams. As she says, We ladies don’t appreciate sticky creams in the heat of summer. We like a nice smooth healthy glow from a product like Smash box BB cream. It was first created to protect the skin after laser treatment or surgery. It’s loaded with antioxidants and moisturizers which smooths the skin and acts as an anti inflammatory. Actresses rely on it to give the face a smooth porcelain look. It’s a moisturizer, primer, sunblock and foundation all in one jar.
We may not be actresses but we still want to look good. Within the past few years BB creams have been best sellers. You can find them in L’Oreal and Cover Girl to high end brands. There are more than a dozen BB creams to choose from. Not all BB creams are for everyone, so take heed. Some offer oil control and others different benefits. I’ll name a few for you and their benefits.
1. The Origins BB cream leaves tired, dull skin looking healthier and younger. The wear time is up to eight hours. It’s made for those with a combination of oily and dry skin. It’s a sunblock and is available in six shades. It’s lightweight and sheer, and gives the face a glow with or without makeup. Origins BB cream is great for women who want a natural flawless complexion. It’s perfect for the older woman for it’s anti aging benefits. Cost about $35.
2.Cover Girl BB cream is lightweight and instantly enhances the skin with 10 skin friendly benefits. It’s a great bargain for your pocket book. Although it isn’t as sheer as other BB products and has the consistency of a repackaged version of Cover Girls tinted moisturizers, so you might want to stay away from it for the most beautiful look. It’s about $7. at Target.
3. L’Oreal Paris BB cream is made to hydrate and correct skin flaws. It contains vitamins C and E and doesn’t clog your pores. When you first squeeze the tube it looks a little gray white, but when applied to the face it quickly blends in to match skin tone. You will see a nice glow to the complexion. It’s very sheer and gives a natural look. L’Oreal BB cream is a cut above the lower end products. It gives the benefits of the higher end BB creams and is easier on the pocket book at about $10.99
4. Smash box BB cream does it all, from prime your skin to control oil. It can be worn under foundation and with or without makeup. It isn’t as sheer as some of the other BB creams but it goes on smoothly and it does give complete coverage and doesn’t require concealer. It gives a flawless finish and stays on the face all day, keeping blush looking as good as it did in the morning. It’s pricey at $39., but worth it for a fresh look all day.
