Bb Creams Do You Use Them? What Do You Know?

4 posts in this topic

I have been on the regimen for almost two weeks.

I have never heard of BB cream but my make up I was using I felt was to heavy, bare minerals- and looked awful I've stopped almost completely wearing makeup at all. it said go without when you can so I am not wearing any..Mascara to work only :( *wore makeup once for a job interview

I went into a whole foods market and asked about a tinted moisturizer and there were a few options. My question is does anyone have a favorite or recommend anything. I bought ANDALOU NATURALS BB ALL IN ONE SPF 30 for $15.00

I am only wearing for emergencies (haven't worn it yet) I put it on to test it when I purchased it then washes it off- I dont want to do anything to slowdown or reverse the regimen - however IF this "make up" aka tinted moisturizer/bb cream isn't harmful then I would wear it everyday!! Help is appreciated here are the ingredients:

I've never tried that one but it looks like a good cream! I personally used Rimmel's BB 9-in-1 (Matte) which I got because I found it for about $7 at Shoppers, and it works really well for me.

I use a legit, South Korean BB cream from Holika Holika. However, my skin is completely clear now since my diet change, and I don't wear much anymore. I do recommend the Clearing Petit BB cream from Holika Holika, though. It's full-coverage, very blendable, and looks dewy and great. It only comes in ivory, so no dice if you're tan.

Suffered from acne as a young adult that went into remission when put on hormonal birth control. Went off the HBC around age 22 and the acne returned with a vengeance (along with a host of other hormonal complaints). 100% clear with a modified diet that excludes dairy, sugars, grains, citrus and cured meats and emphasizes whole food-based nutrition from both plant and animal sources, most notably organ meats like liver and juiced whole vegetables. I have included a recipe for the most helpful juice I have come up with for skin complaints. I drink it every day, and it is invaluable for acne due to the large amounts of vitamin A (carotenoids) from both the carrots and beets. It also helps improve your coloring if you are very fair, giving you a pinkish, more radiant look (not orange. Don't worry!).

Magic Juice

In a juicer, combine:

5-6 carrots

1 medium beet

2-3 stalks of celery

1 small apple (Green is preferred. Omit if you are very sugar-sensitive)

1 small (1inch) piece of ginger (optional, but good for digestion)

This makes a variable amount of juice depending on the size of the vegetables you use.

Drink this throughout the morning until it's gone. Store in the fridge not longer than one day.

Having perfectly clear skin on my wedding day was worth all the headache and effort of figuring out how diet affects acne!

Hi :)

I stopped wearing liquid foundation about a year and a half ago, and now only use Khiel's Actively Correcting and Beautifying BB Cream.

It doesn't make me break out, and really helps with fading hyperpigmentation and gives me an even complexion.

This BB Cream has a light coverage, but is buildable, and covers very well depending how much product you use.

It contains vitamin c, and is SPF 30 PA+++

I love this BB cream and have gone through numerous bottles of it. I wouldn't use anything else.
