Beauty Balm Creams have always maintained their fair popularity to those that have great skin but most use as their primer or just their foundation and a refresher. Today, BB Creams are created for just about any skin type but for the incoming warmer months, less foundation and more beauty balm is ideal.
Applying any foundation and makeup in general in a hot room with no AC or fan running can probably ruin a gal's day but these quick non-messy BB creams can be applied with just our hands! We look finished and touched up, it's simply awesome. We all know the awesomeness of BB Creams but most out there in some drugs stores or your fave makeup seller carry BB Creams with SPF in them, even better, almost perfect!
In most Beauty Balm Creams there is a safe dose of SPF, anything ranging between SPF 15 and SPF 35 shall do the trick! We love these affordable but great BB Creams sold at your local drugstore or high-end makeup retailer:
Garnier's Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream SPF 15
From personally experience, this cream was fantastic as far as coverage and lightness, but it took some time for my skin to adjust. Once skin adjusts it immediately renews, brightens, moisturizes, and protects with SPF 15. This was the go-to makeup for the summer. I made my purchase at Target.
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream SPF 15
Who isn't a fan of Olay products? The ultimate mom makeup but never fails. Olay BB Cream is a moisture surge with a healthy tint of color plus SPF 15 for a clear and radiant look. Instantly covers up imperfections. Find Olay's Fresh Effects BB Cream at your local drug store or online here.
Urban Decay's Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20
Let's just say, Urban Decay is winning this year by a long shot with their Naked line, we love the Naked Eye Shadow palette but the BB Cream is just as awesome! This cream covers just as well as the Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid! Minus the brush application, it goes on smooth while minimizing the appearance of pores and redness/blotches, giving your skin some firmness, and decreases the look of lines and wrinkles. Sephora usually has the best shipping promotions, order yours here.
Bobbi Brown's BB Cream SPF 35
We love creams that transform your skin over time but more importantly instantly. Bobbi Brown's new BB Cream SPF 35 knocks out several birds with one stone. Bobbi's BB cream moisturizes, treats, and protects your skin with SPF 35 and it literally feels like air. Plus, apply it with a brush for ultimate flawless coverage. Made with love for sure. You can find BB's Cream at Sephora or BB's site.
Smashbox's Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35
Last but not least, Smashbox BB Cream is on the more pricey side but most definitely without a blink gets the job done. This cream totally has no trouble multitasking moisturizing, priming, perfecting, controls oil, and protects (with SPF) for flawless skin. Personally, it is very smooth almost too smooth for an oil controlling formula but the smoothness redeems itself by essentially re-leveling your skin. Natural matte finish without the dryness. Pick it up at Sephora or order online here.
