New Here.  Second Post.  Are most of you using BB/CC creams instead of foundation or using it together, or depending on what your doing???   Just trying to figure out if I should buy it.  The Rachel K CC cream is kinda expensive and then have to buy foundation as well.

hi! ive tried just one cc cream which was by olay. it was OK but didnt really give me the skin ( or the coverage) that i wanted. Since then I started using BB creams. I think overall, BB creams are more beneficial for the skin. It's anti aging, moisturizing, tone correcting, pore minimizing, and provides a good amount of coverage. Right now i am alternating between Missha perfect cover BB cream spf 42 ( i love how this looks on my skin, but it transfers) and tarte BB Primer ( can be used alone, or as a primer, and this one doesnt transfer). Neither BB creams gave me problems. Never used foundation since ( except the revlon whipped that i got in caramel so i just use that to contour my face haha). You just have to find the right Bb cream for you.

Try the new Garnier BB Cream for oily combo skin. It has fantastic coverage, SPF 15 and helps control oil. I started using it when I recently went on Retin A and my skin was a mess. It is very gentle, nothing aggravates my already "upset" skin. The only issue is they don't have a really light color if you have really fair skin. It comes in light/medium and medium/dark. I love it!

Hi guys, i am new here. I have recently bought Lab Series' BB Tinted moisturizer without doing much research on impact of such products on skin that is prone to breakout. I was wondering if such cream/moisturizer can cause detrimental effects on my skin type or would it be ok to apply them on(my face is slightly oily and i have large pores). Thanks in advance for the help guys!!

I have the new clinique CC cream which covers nicely and feels good on the skin, especially if you're prone to dryness from using acne products and it has an spf of 30. The color options are kinda limited though. Most BB and CC creams all run around the same price it seems.  I use the CC cream for daily use and working, I use foundation for special occasions/dates so they both last awhile. Sometimes I'll dab a little pressed powder (I use lorac translucent powder) over top of the CC cream if I want more of a matte look.

I tried the Garnier BB Cream for Normal/Oily Skin. It was way too sheer for me.

 

Now I use Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream. It's THE BEST. It's a Korean brand, so it has more coverage than the American brands. It's the best "foundation" I've ever tried, EVER. I love it. It has lots of great benefits, but the ones that I've benefited from the most were the 'lightening effects' and the SPF. My red marks are fading, my skin is fresher looking.

 

It covers any fading red marks from acne (or existing acne) with just one pump from the bottle. The only thing is that you have to set it with powder or else it can become shiny.

Just wanted to say, I've been using BB cream for about 2 years now. It is not just a glorified tinted moisturizer. You must be using the American stuff. 

 

Original Korean BB cream from BRTC is the bomb, specifically Jasmine Water BB cream and Blemish Recover Balm. Jasmine Water is the best. It smooths over your skin and is easier to work with than a foundation, and I use it instead of a moisturizer. It's my foundation and moisturizer. Very natural finish.

 

What I love about it is that powders generally highlight all my blemishes, and liquid foundations give me shine. By replacing BB cream with my moisturizer, my makeup looks pretty good all the time. 

 

If you have fair skin, it'll work for you the best. Darker complexions, you'll probably still be ok too. It blends well. I would find Makeup Alley reviews of the BRTC creams and find the ones meant for lighter/darker skins. But I know that Jasmine Water is a favorite. You can order it on Amazon. 

 

That's me after bb cream and blush --

I want some of this! 

 

Might try either the Lab Series one or one of the Korean brands.

 

Any recommendations for oily-combination skin?

Thanks!! I'd actually like to do a tutorial on the Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream to show how well it goes on. I apply it with a flat-topped foundation brush, which makes it go on very smoothly and flawlessly. I do "dotting" or "stippling" motions to get more concentrated coverage on my red marks. Then I quickly brush some powder over all of it, and it looks amazing!

I have oily-combination skin and even though Lioele Triple the Solution looks semi-oily when it goes on, if you set it with powder, it looks great! I no longer have a mixture of dry spots and insanely oily spots on my face. I could not recommend this product enough. :) Good luck and have fun looking for the right makeup for you! :D

^^ I'll have to check out Lioele! I've experimented with a couple other BB creams but have found myself coming back to the Jasmine Water.

hi, BB cream stands for 'blemish balm" cc cream is for "color corrector". They are similar but cc cream is newer, it has more antioxidants, sunscreen good stuff, ect. It is also generally lighter in texture and more suited to oily skin.

I hardly wear make-up as my skin is pretty clear but for occasions when I do, cc gream is great. It gives you a glowy natural look and if you read the ingredients very carefully, you can find one which is best suited for you.

No I haavent rtied the Rachel K but have heard good reviews. Clinique just created one and also this Hungarian company called Omorovisca are supposed to be best for acne-prone people. Clinique costs $35 and the other is WAY way more--about the price of a weekend stay in a motel in Jersey. lol. Most reputable brands with counters in the department stores will give you a sample to try before you buy.

I really like the idea of bb/cc creams for me cc creams feel better and have less chance of clogging pores.

 

 

Has anyone tried a CC CREAM??? It is suppose,to be better than BB. I think i am going to try Rachel K cc cream. If anyone has already tried this please reply back. Thanks

^^ Speaking of samples, Lioele lets you order samples before you purchase. The Triple the Solution is $28, so before I bought the large tube, I got three/four samples (which totaled at about $2.50). Always do samples first!!! Also, their shipping is super fast and they send you lots of extra samples and coupons with any purchase. haha, sorry about all the hype, but it's valid hype, I promise!
