I have checked amazon and it looks as Garnier Nutri Miracle is the most rated BB cream. I am going to Boots tomorrow and would love to buy either concealer or a good BB cream. What would you suggest? Thank you!

Hi, yes, the gold one is for drier skin, so I go for that one

Korean bb creams aren't really like tinted moisturisers, more like primer/light foundations.

Boots time delay one is like a facelift! Def not like tinted moisuriser

cynister, I have found this link about BB creams from vogue www.vogue.co.uk/beauty/2012/06/29/10-best-uk-bb-creams---beauty-benefit-balms-with-spf

I understand that this is just a foundation but which blends with your natural colour.

I agree, the European ones ARE like tinted moisturisers. The Korean ones are different. More coverage, higher SPF sunscreens, and some will help mask open pores or fine lines.

The best BB cream bar none is Bobbi Brown. It is simply gorge

just deleted stupid post with proper links etc so not bothering now, out of pique. This is a US beauty blog I am obsessed with, very good explanation of BB creams esp if you are wondering what the difference is between those and tinted moisturiser and foundation etc.

I recently posted looking for a new foundation moving from a tinted moisturiser. I have the bobbi brown one - have to say I m impressed with coverage and staying power but the colour is a little orange for me (light) so have a new sample of the lightest colour - seems much better smile am going to purchase the full tube. Have to say found bobbi brown assistants very helpful- walked away feelig that my skin is lovely (got a few compliments from them about it <flutters lashes> sucker for compliment me grin
(as opposed to the girls on the other make up counters from where I walk away with a list of things I now should need to make me look better - and a mental list of my skin flaws that they comment on!)

Oh, I will Fruitsandveg! It might take a bit, as it is coming direct from Korea..also love the stuff I put on myself blog..

Resurrecting this thread to say that I received my order of BB Magic Cream from Etude House ...I love it! Just the right amount of coverage, blends right into my skin. My teenage daughter is also using it, so will be ordering second tube soon.

Thanks vixcyn. May I ask you why it is so effective? Does it work better than the regular foundation or concealer?

o, it will not correct eye dark circles.

If you have allergies, then you may developed dark circles. Treatment: antihistamine.
If you have sun damage, then the skin under your eyes gets pigmented. Treatment: hydroxy acids, retinoid/retinol, hydroquinone, and sunscreen.
If you have wrinkles under your eyes, then they can create the appearance of dark circles. Treatment: hydroxy acids, retinoid/retinol, sunscreen.
If you have bruising under the eye, then you may developed dark circles. Treatment: Vitamin K cream "may" work.
If your facial bone structure casts a shadow onto your under eye, then it can create the appearance of dark circles. Treatment: none topically or orally. You may consider plastic surgery.
If you have fat atrophy under the eye, then it can create a hallow and appearance of dark circle. Treatment: derma filler/fat transplant/ plastic surgery.
