Good tinted moisturiser/bb/ cc cream?

I've been using a Soap & Glory CC cream for a few years, it's bloody fantastic, quite fluid, SPF15. I use it instead of foundation most days with a bit of concealer and powder over the top. But it appears to have been discontinued- can't find it in any shops and showing as out of stock on

So I'm after some recommendations for something similar. Bought a Vichy BB cream the other day as it was on offer and I hate it, goes all blotchy on my skin (and wasn't cheap).

I am a big fan of Bobbi Brown BB cream. Not cheap though.

Bourjois cc cream is good. Very liquidy and surprisingly good coverage

Laura mercies tinted moisturiser is a dream but pricey.

Nivea do a tinted moisturiser. .

I've tried the niven one, not keen. Toying with the idea of Bobbi Brown as I am currently using one of her concealers and really like it. Lot of money to spend for something I might not like, wonder if they'll do me a sample?

I hate good stuff being discontinued sad

High end places will usually give you a sample that'll last a week or so. Can't hurt to ask.

I use clinique tinted moisturiser and love it. Although they first of all convinced me to buy a bb cream which was not good on my skin at all. Went back to get the tinted moisturiser (which was what I wanted in the first place...) and its so good.

Use it as a foundation, with a bit of concealer if needed, nd powder on top.

Espa tinted moisturiser is the best i have tried.

For cheap, I use the No 7 BB cream, its in a pink tube, and have repurchased it 3 times. Its the best I have tried. I have quite sensitive mixed dry and oily skin and it balances it quite well with a dewy finish.
Its low coverage obviously as a BB cream but perfect when my skin is quite good.

I use Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser and love it. It's one of the few products I rebuy. It's quite thick though. I'm sure they'd give you a sample.

I've tried a few over the years and the best one for me by far is the Bourjois CC cream. I also have supersensitive fairly oily skin but this CC cream gives a soft matt finish. Love it, infact was going to start a thread recommending it later.

I've tried loads of them, and the one I rate most is the Chanel CC cream. I always get complimented on my 'lovely skin' when I wear it.

I've tried the Clinique moisture surge tinted moisturiser which I really liked. I prefer a higher coverage over winter months though. It was good though good range of shades nice coverage and you can get a sample at the counter to try

I like Olay Total Effects BB cream. I chose it based on the good Amazon reviews

Dancergirl Tue 03-Jan-17 17:47:21

I love Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser.

Thanks everyone, I feel a trip to the Bobbi Brown counter coming on, but might try the Olay as well

I've used the Balance Me BB cream since the summer and it's lovely. SPF25 and 99% natural. Not cheap but lasts ages. On offer in John Lewis at the moment

Bobbi Brown one here too - and I bought the brush they recommended to apply it, together they're brilliant.
