It's out of stock on the website and I can't find it in any branches. I use the light version and it's brilliant. What can I use instead please? Any recommendations welcome!

I think they have , I've googled as I need some more . I have some light tubes ( brand new ) if you are interested . I will eBay them I think as I wear medium now .

I used to use it and moved to Bourjois (?sp) CC cream and definitely prefer it.

bishboschone Thu 28-Jan-16 15:52:13

Thanks ... I may try that .. Are the colours the same ? Which colour botanics dos you use and which colour bourjois do you use ? Colour is the tricky bit!

Yes, I emailed them last week to ask this very q because I couldn't find it either. Gutted.

Oh no!! I love it too. What a shame, its .
I've got two tubes I'll have to eek out over years!

Oh no! That was their best seller, why would they do that?

I also like No 7 BB creams is that helps anyone.

I've syrted using nude Bb cream-a maybelline one which is perfect for every day wear

bishboschone Sat 30-Jan-16 07:35:11

Yes please mammamia... Do you want one of my tubes of light ?

I have a tube of Boots Botanics BB cream in medium if anyone wants to swop for a tube of light. Its been used once and still in box.

bishboschone Sat 30-Jan-16 17:01:25

I have about 3 brand new tunes of light .. Bought in error as I prefer the medium now.. Happy to swop one .

Trills Sat 30-Jan-16 17:04:08

Yes they have!

And I'd only recently discovered it.

I use the Bourjouis 123 CC cream in the summer (when I am too tanned for the Botanics Medium). It comes in more colours than just light/medium.

I never did understand why the Botanics/Garnier BB creams were made by skincare brands and lived with skincare rather than being in the makeup area - they are makeup.

If you're into Facebook groups and makeup and stuff this lot might have some good suggestions.

hi Bishboschone I will pm to arrange a swop. Many thanks.

Bloody Boots! I use that BB cream too in the summer, it's nice. They also discontinued my favourite No7 nude lipstick that I'd worn for years last year. I wish they'd let customers know when they're planning to discontinue stuff!

( and what happens to the products leftover, do they just bin them?)

maybemyrtle Sat 30-Jan-16 22:32:06

Destiny they told me they'd sold out and had no more stock in any stores...but also that it hadn't been selling well for a while. I almost wrote back to say that it can't have been selling that badly then!

bishboschone Sun 31-Jan-16 12:02:42

They might sell more if they put it in the make up section!!

mammmamia Thu 11-Feb-16 00:03:04

Sorry I didn't reply. Whoever wants mine PM me. I don't need the light one in return.

KBenn5 Thu 03-Mar-16 11:54:48

Hi there. Do you still have the medium colour? I would be ever so grateful for a tube! Many thanks..KBenn5

KBenn5 Tue 15-Mar-16 12:58:48

Hi, just checking if you still have the BB cream in Medium?

Kind regards, KBenn5

I loved this BB cream and am still looking for an alternative :-( Any suggestions please let me know. I need good coverage but ideally something less heavy than foundation. Thanks

I heard Seventeen BB cream is similar

MairzyDoats Wed 22-Jun-16 16:34:35

I've just run out...waaaah! Any other recommendations?

I'm a big fan of Rimmel 9in1 radiance BB cream. Better than Estee Lauder IMO
