do CC creams count? I personally haven't tried many BB creams, but I like lumene's CC cream....light, easy to apply, SPF, relatively cheap, and decent ingredients.

 
Yes, CC creams do count. smile.png What have you used?
 
I only used Lumene so far and I'm happy with it. The color is a little off for me, but I usually put some blush and it looks alright. It doesn't cause breakouts and lasts for many hours.
I was curious about the new Ponds CC cream...anyone tried it?

I have tried the Ponds CC cream, and it wasn't my favorite. Disturbed my dry patches and made my skin very oily, which is not good for acne prone skin. What I swear by is the Garnier BB cream for oily/combination skin. I apply this with my expert studio beauty blender and it doesn't disturb dryness, doesn't cause peeling, hydrates the skin, etc. There are so many things I love about this product! The coverage is very nice, like medium-buildable. I can just skip the concealer. But best of all, it is non-comedogenic, oil free, non-acnegenic (meaning it causes no acne), and has an SPF of 20 (no white cast). The only draw back is the shades- it only comes in 3 shades (deep, medium/deep, and light/medium). Definitely give it a shot!

 

There are two versions of the Garnier BB Cream and the best is by far the oily/combination skin. It has a much better formula.

I heard good things about garnier's BB cream...might have to try it soon! 


Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)

I really still have to put my vote for any Korean-brand BB creams. Koreans know their stuff. Trust!

I have tried Korean BB creams, and even though I have pale skin, I find that they do not match me in any way. They look gray and toneless on me, and have given me horrible breakouts. I just feel like my skin is more used to the American ones :)

do you order korean bb creams online, or do some stores sell them?

I'd also heard great things about the garnier bb cream so was excited to try it out. I'd been wanting to get away from wearing heavier foundations. I bought the garnier bb cream for oily/combo skin (in the long / tall tube) the other week and unfortunately their 'light' shade is still far too dark / orange for my skin. I have to mix it with a pale foundation to use it. I think on it's own, if the colour was better for my skin, it would be quite nice and cover well.

I agree. I live in the US, so here there is no light shade, the lightest is light/medium. I have pale skin and was super doubtful, but somehow it adapted to my skin and matches me. I just wish they had a bigger shade range, then it would be perfect! But it is still the best drugstore BB cream I've ever come across.
