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 boots.com.
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'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 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.
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'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 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
